TRUMP OR CLINTON - WHO'S BETTER FOR GOLF?
Unless you've been under a rock, you're probably aware there's a quite contentious presidential election campaign going on. With just a few weeks left, as the candidates choose to discuss sexual assault, emails and voter fraud, instead of health care, taxes, the Supreme Court and immigration reform, I wondered how might the upcoming presidential election impact (the all-important game of) golf and the golf course and club industry in particular?
As we all know, our industry has experienced a long period of declining participation, disappearing golf courses and reduced revenues for operators and clubs. Some think a President Trump would be good for the game while others feel a President Clinton might be preferable for golf’s fortunes. While hoping not to inject my own political opinions (not easy) into this discussion, Here’s my take.
