NGF’s 2023 GolfSAT Award Winners
The National Golf Foundation is pleased to recognize The Jewel Golf Club in Minnesota and Sand Creek Station Golf Course in Kansas as winners of NGF’s annual GolfSAT Customer Satisfaction Awards for the second straight year.
The GolfSAT platform, used by more than 1,000 U.S. golf facilities since its inception, is a golfer satisfaction survey that enables participating courses to compare satisfaction measures against benchmarks of similarly-priced properties nationwide. GolfSAT provides operators with feedback on the overall customer golf experience, from course conditioning, pricing, pace of play, service and more, to the likelihood that golfers will recommend that course to others.
The Jewel, a Hale Irwin-design nestled in the Mississippi River valley grand bluffs, southeast of Minneapolis, again earned the top ranking in the premium public course category (peak green fee of $70 or more).
Sand Creek Station, located outside Wichita and host of the USGA’s final U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship held in 2014, was recognized for the 14th time as the nation’s No. 1 standard and/or value course (peak green fee of under $70) in overall customer loyalty. Four other facilities also operated by KemperSports were top finishers in both categories.
