WAUSAU, Wisconsin (WAOW) – Badger State is seeing more people on the fairway.
Compared to 2020, the number of rounds of golf played has increased by 30 percent.
Pros at golf courses in our area say the pandemic played a factor in the increase. They say the sport is socially distant and easy to learn.
“I think people just realized that golf is a great game to play as a family and everything else. This year we saw that in golf lessons too and I saw some new faces and people who wanted to learn how to play and enjoy, “said Paul Bjerke, Head Golf Professional, Merrill Golf Course.
Pros say they don’t expect the surge to end anytime soon.
