The only data we have are for Scottish clubs, and it may be skewed by the fact that Scotland has not been as badly hit by the wet wintry weather as England and Wales, or because the country is hosting the Ryder Cup later this year.

“Advance bookings are breaking all previous records,” commented Kingsbarns’ chief executive Alan Hogg (pictured).
“We are extremely excited about 2014.”
