This report provides information on the number of adults playing golf during
2021, and details the level of participation in golf on full length courses,
driving ranges and alternative golf venues.
Golfers are also split according to their play frequency and a range of demographic factors.
Additional questions were added this year to assess the impact of the
pandemic on participation.
The 2021 results are based on online interviews with a sample of 1,007
residents of the island of Ireland aged at least 15.
Sports Marketing Surveys has run the golf participation programme since 1996. This is the second year the programme has been run in Ireland.
