Golf tourists purchase many different goods and services while on their trip, supporting a wide range of businesses such as hotels, restaurants, retailers and, of course, golf facilities themselves through the purchase of green fees, golf equipment and cart rental. IAGTO estimates golfers’ spend to be 120% more than that of other travellers’.

Nearly three-quarters of the tour operators surveyed are also positive about the future.
