By now, your clients or members will have seen any price increases that you’ve implemented since last year.
Whether it’s a hike in food and beverage prices, membership, rounds or products, the golf industry is no different than the rest of Canada these days with the cost of everything rising.
That, of course, means business expenses going up, whether it’s a food and beverage department paying more for meat, vegetables and other groceries, or other aspects of your operation dealing with their own costs.
The price of gas, hovering around the $2 a litre mark in some parts of Canada, much more in other areas, is sure to increase prices just for delivery and that must be passed along to the consumer, already dealing with inflation outside the golf course.
So how are consumers reacting to price increases caused by inflation and other factors?
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
