More golf courses are closing every day. Many golf retailers describe their business as down by a third from 5 years ago. What can be done to grow golf and make it more fun and profitable for all in the sport?
I have thought about it and have a few ideas that might help:
1. Have 2 flags on every green and play to the closest one.
2. Allow the hand wedge- throwing the ball.(for beginners)
3. Mow the roughs to make play easier and speed up the game.
4. Reward fast play with a 2 shot reduction in score.
Just thinking. Any thoughts?
