Connoisseurs of golf travel writing are well familiar with what could be called the “jam-o-graph.” It’s the passage, right after the long, florid description of each of the many high-end courses the writer heartily enjoyed, that’s crammed with the various other amenities on offer, the vast majority of which our hero didn’t have time for, owing to his onerous 36-holes-a-day regime.

By Jaime Diaz

What does the future hold for golf? If the game is going to do more than survive and actually thrive, it needs a rich infusion of new blood. The latest numbers from the National Golf Foundation about millennial participation and interest have been encouraging, but not game changing. Contrary to Donald Trump’s idea that golf should be aspirational—i.e. a privileged pastime for the rich—golf needs to improve its root system so it can grow. Of course, the most vital source of new golfers should be kids.
