In the first half of this year, green fees먹튀검증 generally showed a downward trend.
XGOLF, the largest golf booking platform in Korea, extracted the average green fees used by golfers from January to June and analyzed it compared to the previous year. Compared to the same period last year (146,283 won on weekdays and 181,872 won on weekends), they are down 6.77% and 3.57%, respectively.
During the off-season for golf (January and February), green fees declined significantly during the week. Weekday green fees in January fell by 14.57% year-on-year. In terms of the amount, it is analyzed that the amount has gone down to close to 20,000 won. Except for the winter season, most of the remaining months showed a downward trend, and a similar trend was observed by region.
However, weekend green fees were in the opposite direction. Last May, the weekend green fee was 193,482 won, up 2.14% from the previous year (189,425 won). Except for Gangwon-do and Chungcheong-do, it was revealed that the weekend green fees also increased during the same period. The decline in January-February decreased from March and then rose in May, the ‘peak season’.
During the Corona 19 era, domestic golf courses enjoyed an unprecedented boom. Not only green fees but also incidental expenses rose significantly, but reservations were so successful that people even heard that they were “picking stars in the sky.”
In November of last year, the government amended the Sports Facilities Act to solve the problem of similar membership operation and high fees for public golf courses, and on May 30, the government revised the Enforcement Decree of the Local Tax Act targeting non-member golf courses that receive expensive green fees. It was announced that it will be applied from July. The ultimate goal was to promote the popularization of golf. However, questions remain about its effectiveness.An official from XGOLF said, “The decline in green fees started at the end of last year, and it was clearly revealed after analyzing the rates in the first half of the year. Recently, green fees seem to be returning to before the price rose dramatically due to Corona 19.” “Popular golf courses that were difficult to find these days Reservations for tee times are also not difficult, and golfers have also increased the number of cases where they reserve tee times near the deadline and make reservations at a lower price than the actual golf course’s notice.”
