Golf season start April green fee analysis… Average rate continues to decline

As a result of analyzing green fees in April, when the golf season begins, the overall average green fee continues to decline.

XGOLF calculated April green fee data for 2023 and 22 based on the golf course usage fees reserved by the actual members. XGOLF announced last January that it had turned into the first downtrend in 23 years after analyzing the green fee in January for five years.

According to the analysis, compared to the previous year, green fees in April fell 1.31% on weekdays and 2.34% on weekends. Compared to the average green fee in April 2022, which increased by more than 12% compared to 2021, this means that the downward curve of golf course fees is continuing smoothly.

In particular, golf courses in Gangwon-do and Chungcheong-do led the decline in green fees by significantly lowering the amount than in other regions. On weekends, green fees fell by 6.2% in Gangwon-do and 13.7% in Chungcheong-do.

In addition, the green fees of weekday golf courses in the metropolitan area, Gyeongsang-do, and Jeolla-do are still showing a slight upward trend. Rates at golf courses in the metropolitan area increased by less than 1% compared to the previous year, and green fees at golf courses in Jeolla-do and Gyeongsang-do increased by 1-2% during the week. Golf courses in Jeju Island, where there are many weekend tourists, rose to 10%.크크크벳

An official from XGOLF said, “This survey was conducted to examine the trend of changes in green fees at the time when golf course classification was not completed after the announcement of the amendment to the golf course classification system.” could We plan to continue monitoring golf course fees in the future.”

The golf course classification system is a bill amended by the ‘Act on the Installation and Use of Sports Facilities’ announced by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in May last year. According to the amendment, golf courses are classified into membership, non-member, and public golf courses, and average fees for April, May, June, September, October, and November are calculated and classified into non-member and public golf courses.
