EGA show upward trend in European Golf
August 6, 2010

New statistics published by the European Golf Association are further evidence of the trend over recent years in the European golf market: The sport of golf on the European Continent is enjoying rising popularity, while in the British Isles the severe fall-off in interest seen in the past four years is continuing, in terms of numbers of club golfers and golf courses. In Germany alone seven new golf courses were opened last year, and 24,150 new club players registered. This trend is mirrored in countries like the Czech Republic , Hungary and Slovakia .

These contrasting movements illustrate an effect that has been continuing in the golf market for a number of years: The old established golfing countries are battling to retain their leading position in the international market, while in the new markets of the future - above all in Central, Western and Southern Europe - the trend is upwards.

Armin Wittmann, Exhibition Group Director of GOLF EUROPE, comments: "In times of change such as these, the sector needs an established platform. Thanks to the high level of competence of its exhibitors and the broad international scope of the event itself, GOLF EUROPE is precisely the fair that the sector needs in times like these." He continued: "In addition, the central location for the fair, in Munich , with its outstanding infrastructure, is a key factor in the decision of many of the firms to come here and take part."
