Golf economic study now available

Interested in how golf stacks up to other industries in terms of its contribution to the economy, as well as to environmental sustainability? The newly released California Golf Economic and Environmental Study, commissioned by the California Alliance for Golf, presents an in depth overview, available in summary format, or in detail in the 47 page full report. While its value is primarily to those of you in California, it is a good model for development of reports for other states as well.

The study's authors suggest the following uses for this information:

  • Defining the range of core and enabled industries associated with the game of golf
  • Demonstrating for policymakers the employment and revenue generating contributions of the golf industry to the state economy
  • Building recognition of the golf industry as a significant business sector and a driver of the state's economic activity
  • Demonstrating the golf industry's continued progress in resource conservation and environmental excellence
