5 reasons why golf is in recovery
1. BTME was record breaking
The usual barometer of how the year will shape up is the BTME exhibition in Harrogate in January, where companies showcase millions of pounds-worth of products for golf clubs.
The last few years have been disappointing, but this year the show had 8,751 visitors, the highest number in its history.
One exhibitor said: “This has been the best show for many years in terms of numbers and quality of visitors. On the Wednesday, for four hours, we just didn’t stop. It was literally customer after customer.”
Another said: “The footfall, orders and enquiries exceeded anything seen in the last four years. Confidence is certainly returning.”
