July Golf Weather Impact: Still Waiting for “The Bounce”
July’s weather impact results again underwhelmed vs. any comparative measure as Golf Playable Hours (GPH) were down 2% compared to the same month last year. That continues the Year-to-Date (YtD) results as flat (up fractionally) vs. a poor ’18.
Played Rounds data for June published by Golf Datatech were mathematically flat (i.e. 0%) producing a modest Utilization gain for the month (we’ll take it!). For the YtD period, rounds are off modestly against marginally favorable weather so we’re still showing a fractional Utilization decline through June.
