«Looking Back: The 10 encouraging golf trends that caught our attention in 2016»

The progress, development and current state of the golf industry is always up for debate. For some, 2017 is a crucial year to turn around a sector in serious decline; for others it is an opportunity to build upon some heartening positives.

This list from Golf Advisor airs on the side of optimism, pointing out the encouraging number of young people taking up golf in 2016, as well as the shift towards projects to attract busy people back to the fairways.

Whether 2016 was a year of difficulty or prosperity, these interesting trends are sure to shape the stories in golf in 2017. Why not see some of our 2016 stories here?
