Pro Vision – May 2009

Are you seeing a difference in the number of rounds played at your club/course? If so, have the numbers increased or decreased?

“Round counts have remained fairly steady in this environment. We have noticed our players looking for variations on times and days to play to fit their budgets and increased demands on their time. The driving range has increased over the last few months as more guests are finding time (in shorter stints) to work on their game during this tougher economic environment. Our weekly ladies and junior clinics have been very successful lately and we are seeing more people take up the game in an effort to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and as a means to ‘get away’ from the every day grind.”

“We are confident that the players will still continue to find the time to play their rounds of golf, it just might be at different times and prices in an effort to take advantage of the specials that courses are offering. Golf remains a great solution to the constant demands that are out there facing many local residents during this recession. We are confident that our continued commitment to course condition and service will keep them coming back throughout the year.”
