This is not meant to burst any bubbles about golf’s surge in popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the number of rounds played since the beginning of last year is bound to take a hit once we do approach life the way we used to know it.
It seems inevitable that as large indoor and outdoor gatherings are allowed and movies, gyms and restaurants open once again for business, people will be distracted from golf.
Many people will return to the workplace instead of toiling at home and more people will be taking two or three-week vacations during the summer. Then again, golf courses will be holding more tournaments than during the pandemic, so that needs to be taken into consideration.
That’s not to say that a great number of people who took up or came back to the game will lose interest, but life could get in the way and reduce the number of rounds they played after the pandemic began in early 2020.
What do you think? To what extent will rounds be reduced in Canada when the pandemic is over?
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
