Abstract: The game of golf, once considered as marking the rite of passage to the middle class, is, for various reasons, in the doldrums, at least in the US and most of Europe. For instance, in the US, which dominates the golf market by a long shot, 160 golf courses out of the country's 14,000-odd 18-hole golf courses closed in 2013 alone, marking the eighth consecutive year of course closures. Prospects for golf in the US are also bleak as young people are increasingly disenfranchised with the game. Between 2009 and 2013, participation in golf of 18- to 34-year-olds plummeted by 13 per cent, while the participation of the same cohort in more active sports, like jogging, rose by 29 per cent.
