When we discuss the business of golf, we focus directly on the business itself and the people who circulate within it, but not so much once they’ve left their places of employment and headed home.
Of course, a person’s life outside of work is a private matter, with each person deciding how much they want to share with others, but productivity and morale at work is related to what’s happening on the home front and, while respecting your co-workers’ privacy, it’s only human to care about those around you.
That’s especially true as we come out of the pandemic and face runaway inflation and rising interest rates, among other factors making life difficult these days.
Just over a week ago, Canadians were celebrating Thanksgiving when the price of turkey dinner with all the fixings was up about 12 per cent over last year.
That not only affected dinner at home, but also at food banks that are being used by more people and donated to by fewer people due to the cost of living.
So, we’re wondering how people in the golf industry are being affected by inflation, rising rates and other economic factors.
Have you had to cut back on personal spending due to recent inflation, rising rates and other economic factors.
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
