Long live public golf courses
As the golf industry works diligently to regain solid footing both private and public golf clubs are adjusting to the new normal. Will the industry boom again like it did before 9/11? Perhaps, but over time. Meanwhile, golfers have plenty of choices when deciding how to spend their golf dollars. Private golf clubs have stepped up with incentives and either reducing or eliminating initiation fees. Daily fee courses have added to their offerings, honed in on lessons and the customer experience and in the end, the golfer is the big winner! If you have the means and you’re considering a private golf membership versus playing daily fee courses, here are a few good reasons why public golf courses are the better than private clubs.
