Positive End to Summer Golf

The latest Golf Datatech National Rounds Played Report, with results for August 2023, is now published.

In summary, U.S. rounds were up +0.1% for August 2023 and +4.1% YTD, when compared to August 2022. What’s more, five out of eight regions saw improvements over 2022 rounds for the month.

Rounds played at public access courses were up 0.4% for the month while private courses were off -1.4%.  Interestingly, on a YTD basis, public courses are performing much better than private, +4.6% vs. +2.2%.

On the latest figures, GDT co-founder John Krzynowek said, “August rounds played managed to squeak out the smallest possible increase, +0.1%, even though the weather turned against many parts of the country with weather disturbances ranging from hurricanes to extreme heat to floods.  On a YTD basis, rounds remain up a healthy 4.1%.”
