Golf is the right sport for post-COVID19 World

Every beginner regardless of starting age will tell you golf is hard, but will quickly move onto that one shot that will forever bring them back to the range or mashie 9 holes.
With many contact and team sports facing shutdowns, golf is coming out as a major option for school kids and home-office keyboard warriors. USA has seen a major jump in golf retail and rounds played in the last quarter and SA should see a similar upward trend.
Nick from Freehandicaps.com believes that there is a large gap between starter/social golfers and becoming a “proper” golfer. He says: “ Social golfers with no official handicap due to just starting out or lack of funds are treated as 2nd class golfers with few services trying to help them into becoming an affiliated handicapped player whom can play official competitive rounds” Nick believes Freehandicaps.com serves beginners and social golfers with score/handicap tracking for free, specials from clubs for greens fees and Membership, ranking your own Top 100 courses played and listing your must play next courses.

An estimated 200000 golfers have golf clubs and play 2 to 20 times without an official handicap. That means a possible 1/5 million rounds are not tracked and yet the social golfer is worth over R100 million to the local golf industry just in green fees alone!
