Golf Benchmark

The source of golf industry knowledge

Golf Benchmark Survey

The Golf Benchmark Survey has been designed to provide structured information regarding the operational and financial performances of golf courses in various geographical regions and as such, to allow individual courses to compare their own performance against high, average and low performers in the markets they operate in.

Topics covered in our reports include membership, rounds played, pricing, revenues, costs and profitability, staffing, outsourcing, cart fleet and future outlook of golf course operators.

The table below provides a short description of the report content, its regional focus and the year of publication.
