5 reasons why golf is in recovery

2. Northop is out of administration

northopThe Chester golf course and country club, like many others in the UK, saw a drop in members and entered administration towards the end of last year.

However, it only remained in that state for a few days as two companies felt both its course and clubhouse were worth investing in, securing nine jobs.

Similarly, Doonbeg Golf Club in Ireland had receivers appointed to it in January. Within a month the club had found a new buyer.

    The ‘5 reasons’ do not reflect the vast majority of the industry what so ever. I could equally name 5 reasons ( more like 25 reasons ) why the industry in NOT in recovery, namely, the weather, fewer golfer’s playing, fewer members, VAT distortion between private and proprietary courses, operating overheads going sky high, more supply than there is demand, the time it takes to play golf, stuffy image – shall I go on ???

    • R Thompson

      Well said Alan… What the likes of Wentworth & Royal St Georges are doing usually bears no relevance to what is happening in the “real” golf industry.
