Golf club memberships rise as covid-19 struck group sports

While many sports complexes have faced heavy losses by the covid-19 crisis, golf club membership is at its boom, some 25,000 people have signed up since May when clubs reopened their gates.

“The total numbers of members have been fairly constant for years, but now we are witnessing a crystal-clear increase,” a representative from the Dutch Golf Federation informed NOS reporter at the weekend. Club manager claims “We are very close to having 400,000 members. The game is played in small sets, with adequate social distancing, and takes its course in the open air, making an ideal COVID-proof workout.”

No longer a sport designated for senior citizens, around one-third of the new associates are under below 40 and one in five are, under the age of 30, NOS conveyed.

To play golf at a club or a complex in the Netherlands you need a distinct certificate, known as a GVB, which verifies that you are fully aware of the guidebook for the sport and have stretched to a certain basic notch of skill.
