EDINA, Minn. (Dec. 23, 2021) – On behalf of its allied golf associations and its member golf clubs across the state, the Minnesota Golf Association has completed a second annual facility rounds study to more accurately track golf participation in the state.
For the second consecutive year, golf facilities across all categories in Minnesota report an increase in golf rounds over the previous year by an average 6.9 percent.
The MGA surveyed 358 golf facilities around the state, with 98 facilities reporting rounds over the last four years in the following categories: municipal, (42.4 percent reporting); private, (43.2 percent); public daily fee, (15.6 percent); and resort, (45 percent).*
“As we discovered during the pandemic, golf was one of the few sports or activities that all Minnesotans could safely participate in throughout the summer,” said Tom Ryan, MGA executive director and COO, adding, “this new data shows that we have sustained last year’s remarkable momentum through the ’21 season.”
