The National Golf Foundation (NGF) conducted an exclusive nationwide poll of golf courses, the results of which are the centerpiece of a new NGF COVID-19 webpage that provides information and key data points on the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the golf business.

The website features the latest national estimates of the percentage of U.S. golf courses that are open for play, broken out by facility type, municipal, daily fee and private, as well in-season and out-of-season geographies. The telephone poll was conducted on March 24-25 among a sample of 1,006 golf facilities randomly selected from the NGF’s complete database of more than 14,000 golf facilities that were operating as of the end of last year. Results are accurate to within plus or minus three percent.

The website also includes a national tracker that details whether golf is permitted on a state level by various governmental rulings, golf course operators’ perceptions on the volume of play within the past week and consumer research that reveals how their behaviors (playing and purchasing) have been affected.

Additionally, the NGF’s special COVID-19 site provides links to useful golf industry and government websites, as well as recent articles of interest, including one by NGF that provides an overview of the impact of the pandemic on various sectors of the golf industry, including retail and equipment manufacturers, golf management companies and course suppliers.

The research and findings will be regularly updated through ongoing national polls and surveys, and are available via or the organization’s communications website,
