NGF is your golf market research department, without the overhead
Make NGF your internal research department. As an Executive Member, you have access to all of NGF’s industry databases (including department head decision-makers like General Managers, Superintendents and Golf Directors) and member research. We are happy to conduct custom analyses using these files, providing you with exclusive, unpublished information that does not appear in our published reports. 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 14,800 golf facilities is the gold standard in the industry, licensed by leading associations and businesses in the game (TaylorMade, Toro, Syngenta, PGA of America, USGA, GCSAA and 100+ 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 this class of membership.
