Weather Drives Highest Golf Apparel Figures in History, says Golf Datatech
On the latest figures, GDT co-founder John Krzynowek says, “Golf Apparel continues to enjoy sales growth through the first half of 2023, increasing for the 17th consecutive month, as January of ’21 was the last month with a decline vs. prior year. Good weather allowed more golfers to be at golf courses, helping to drive sales to the highest month of sales in history, topping $170 million for the first time ever. The Green Grass channel is leading the charge, up almost +13% for the year, while Off Course Specialty is down marginally.”
