What Makes Golfers Happy?
Believe it or not, several studies have been carried out to find out exactly what encourages golfers to return to a course. We have many regular visitors, so we’re glad to know that we’re getting it right, but we thought this made interesting reading. Golfers love:
- Good weather. Low wind and a warm climate make for an ideal golfing environment, and this makes all the difference to player satisfaction, according to research.
- Pace of play. The pace of play appears to be a key factor in whether golfers record high levels of satisfaction or not, but this is more important when other factors are constant. This means that at your home course, you may be more inconvenienced by a slow group ahead, for example, than at a course that is new to you and therefore more unpredictable.
- Course conditions. Course conditions are very important, especially when playing golf courses you are not used to. Conditions of the greens, the fairways, the tee boxes and the bunkers, in that order, are seen as the most crucial factors.
- The facilities offered by a club are not a highly influential factor in choosing a golf course, but golfers recorded higher levels of satisfaction where these were experienced as good.
- Design. The design of a golf course can have a big impact on play, and a well-designed course makes for a much more pleasant game. Our course, re-designed by Alister MacKenzie in 1925, offers a challenging and highly enjoyable round.
