There are golf courses in 209 of the world’s 249 countries as of year-end 2018, according to the latest “Golf Around the World” report published by the R&A and based on in-depth research from the National Golf Foundation. The report explores the game’s global reach as seen through the worldwide supply of golf courses, both existing and under development.

The report details 38,864 golf courses around the world, an inventory that was developed and is maintained by the NGF. The R&A study also takes a deeper look at the context of history, economic development and political decision-making when it comes to golf courses and delves into trends in six worldwide regions, such as the emergence of Vietnam as a major market and how courses are used as an engine for local development in countries such as Argentina, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
