Click here for the Performance Trak Results for December 2013
- For 2013, rounds played were down 4.8% and days open were down 6.9% compared to last year. When measuring against 2012, which was an exceptional year for golf due to record breaking weather, it was expected that we would see decreases in 2013.
- The 2013 days open for play were the lowest in the history of PerformanceTrak (est. 2005) along with the national average rounds played for the year. Yet, more rounds were played per day open in 2013 than 2012 or 2011.
- Understandably, gross golf fee revenue was down 3.1%. Still, facility operators reported growth in Merchandise (+2.2%) and F&B (+2.0%). Total Facility Revenue at a modest +0.3%. The exception to gross golf fee revenue growth were Resort facility types, up 2.9%
- Municipal facilities and Daily Fee facilities experienced the largest declines in rounds played. For the year, municipal facilities had 22 less days open compared to 2012 and recorded the largest drop in play of the four golf facility types tracked through this service.
- Of the 42 states with a decline in rounds played from 2012 to 2013, twenty-six of these states actually had more rounds played per day open this year compared to last year.
- Additionally, 31 of the 42 states posting declines in rounds played were affected by above-average precipitation resulting in fewer days open for play (Michigan and North Dakota had their wettest year on record).
