GOLFNOW Industry Report Providing Real-Time Data
ORLANDO, Fla. (April 28, 2020) – As golf courses across North America begin to reopen, GOLF Channel’s Morning Drive today introduced one of two weekly segments produced from daily data released by GOLFNOW, which provide viewers with the latest industry news and the opportunities for recreational play.
Today’s segment showed the pace at which states are reopening for golf across the country. Sunday’s report will feature the GOLFNOW Industry Weekly Report video feature, anchored by GOLF Channel’s Gary Williams, which covers the biggest stories in golf each week and a look at the data that is driving the industry.
Released daily, the GOLFNOW Industry Report offers a variety of resources from real-time market data detailing rounds of golf being played across the country, as well as the open/closed status of every course in every state – public and private.
“Since the availability of golf in every state has been a moving target throughout this pandemic, GOLFNOW has been doing a great job of collecting the latest data to keep the industry informed,” said Morning Drive executive producer Kevin Schultz. “We’re excited about the opportunity to tap into that data with the latest information for our Morning Drive viewers.”
