Golf Media – Consumer Engagement


Member Price: Free
non-Member Price: $395

The NGF’s latest study finds that one in four Americans, 82 million people in total, consumed some form of golf media in 2017. This can include watching tournaments or other golf programs on TV, streaming live tournament coverage online, visiting golf related websites, reading golf magazines and other sport-specific print publications, and listening to golf audio.

This report reveals demographics and details about an abundant and diverse group that’s attractive to media companies, marketers and advertisers. For example, almost 31 million people watched a golf tournament on TV or read about Tiger Woods even though they never played the game.

Driven by the popularity of golf’s global professional tours and their star players, television dominates the golf media landscape across all levels of engagement, from non-golfers and casual participants to the most passionate followers of the game. Live streaming engagement continues to rise, thanks to the increasing presence of digital content and expanded windows of online tournament coverage.
