This edition in the series provides insights and analysis of current demand and supply trends across the European golf industry over the past two years. This time KPMG has studied 33 European golf markets, offering an outlook on golf in the region.
Despite the economic downturn and the decline in golf participation in recent years, golf maintains its popularity and significance in most European countries. In 2013, when the last Golf Participation Report was published, golf in Europe was suffering a very difficult time. The European golf market improved slightly in 2014, recording a slowdown in the decrease in golf participation as well as stabilisation in the number of available golf courses across Europe. We believe that the recent tentative European economic upturn and the continuing initiatives aimed at recruiting new members (which we address in this report) will have a positive impact on golf in Europe in 2015.
