Golf is more popular then ever because it’s one of the few things you can actually do thanks to COVID. Moreover, at least in this neck of the woods, a lot of the private courses (which tend to have the strictest dress codes) are struggling financially. It’s the cheap public courses that are reaping the benefits of this influx of new golfers.My only question is are they? If golf is hotter than it has been for more than 2 decades, in every measurable facet, is their slow growth of the game?
I have had friends tell me the primary reason they don’t golf is because they perceive it as an elitist sport - their reasons for why they think this include dress codes among many other things. So yes I’m going to say its slowin the growth of the game.
