The game of golf drove $84.1 billion of economic activity across the United States in 2016, up from $68.8 billion in 2011. The 2016 U.S. Golf Economy Report represents the fourth study aimed at measuring golf’s impact on different sectors of the economy over time. The previous studies estimated golf’s direct and total economic impact for the base years: 2000, 2005, and 2011. The 2016 study findings point to the golf industry’s strong recovery from the great recession of 2008-2010. The total size of the U.S. golf economy grew by 22.2% since 2011.
