Golfer Avidity Trends

Over the past decade, the number of Core golfers (those who play 8-or-more rounds annually) has dipped by about 1 million. In 2022, the number of Occasional golfers (playing 1-7 rounds a year) surpassed the pool of Core golfers for the first time since it was first measured about four decades ago. Yet while Core golfers account for 49% of all on-course golfers, they account for over 90% of rounds and spend. In addition, the average number of rounds played by Core golfers is higher than a decade ago.
