Korean golfers spend four times as much as Japanese golfers and visit golf courses half as often

Korean golfers pay the most compared to Japanese golfers. Even after spending nearly four times as much, the number of visits to the golf course was only half that of Japan, indicating that it is still far from satisfying the desire to use the golf course.

The weekday fee for public golf courses in Korea is 173,700 won as of May last year. Compared to the weekly golf course fee of 55,800 won (5,621 yen) at Japanese golf courses, Korean golfers have to pay 3.1 times more than Japanese golfers to use the golf course.

When cart usage fees and caddy fees are included, the gap in golf course fees between Korea and Japan widens even more. As of May of last year, the weekday fee per person for public golf courses in Korea, which includes both cart usage and caddy fees, was 230,000 won.

In most Japanese golf courses, the ‘no caddy self-round’ is common. Even if accompanied by a caddy, caddy fees in Japan are around 3,000 yen per person, and most places do not charge a cart fee. Korean golfers pay 3.9 times more to play a round than the average golf course fee of 58,800 won accompanied by a caddy in Japan. Because it ‘s

Looking at the rate of increase in weekday golf course fees for 10 years from 2011 to 2022, domestic public golf course fees soared by 57.8%. On the other hand, during the same period, golf course fees in Japan fell by 14.7%.

In Japan, the green fee fell due to the oversupply of golf courses and the overall decrease in the golf population. In contrast, in Korea, the rapid growth of the golf industry, such as the explosive increase in the golf population due to the influx of golfers in their 20s and 30s, is analyzed as a factor for the increase in green fees.

As overseas travel is restricted due to the Corona 19 incident, golf is a common outdoor sport that can be enjoyed in Korea, and Korea and Japan are in a similar situation. Although the golf industry has grown due to these factors, Korean golfers, who have significantly fewer annual use times, are in a position where Japanese golfers can’t help but envy them.
