NGF Executive Member Benefits
NGF is Your Golf Market Research Department, Without the Overhead
Make NGF your internal research department. As a Executive member, you have access to all of NGF's statistical databases and primary member research. We are happy to conduct custom analyses using these files, providing you with information that does not appear in our published reports. For example, you might want a demographic profile of female golfers between the ages of 35 and 54. Other examples: changes in golf participation by decade, names of owners of off-course golf specialty stores in the Midwest, growth in private golf clubs for the past 100 years. Whatever your need, if it is in our files, we will deliver it to you.
Golf Facility Database and other Supply-Side Metrics
NGF's database of the nation's 16,000 golf facilities is the gold standard in the industry, licensed by leading associations and businesses in the game (PGA of America, USGA, GCSAA, Weather.com, NavTeq and many more). NGF Executive Members have access to this database, as well as best-in-class data on golf retail stores, practice facilities and golf-related businesses. Information on openings, closures, conversions, transactions and other trends are provided to the Executive class of membership.
