The Golf Course industry as a whole is way behind the curve when it comes to promoting the game and encouraging others to play it. As a community, we need to work together to help grow the sport and encourage others to take up the game. We have developed new marketing methods designed to help grow golf by implementing social media policies at local golf courses across the country.
Social media, in particular, Facebook can have a substantial impact on the growth of the game at the local level. Local golf courses need to create a buzz and excitement around the events that are happening at their golf course.
If more golf courses can encourage more golfers in their local areas to take up golf, the golf industry will thrive for decades to come. If we continue to market and promote the game like we have in the past, we will be killing the game we all love so much.
Other recreational sports are using Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms much more effectively than other sports and the golf industry is missing out on opportunities left and right.
