NGF: What’s New and Next for U.S. Golf Courses Under Construction
The National Golf Foundation has an in-depth look ahead to some exciting golf courses being built across the country right now.
Entering this year, there were 92.5 18‑hole equivalent courses in the development pipeline (in the U.S.), according to NGF data, with 37 under construction and the others still in the planning stages.
Among those in the works were 17 new courses and 20 expansions of previous facilities. Of those, 27.5 were daily‑fee facilities (12 new and 15.5 expansions), while only one was a municipal facility and 8.5 were private (five new and 3.5 expansion of an existing property). The NGF measures in 18‑hole increments, so the .5 would reflect nine holes.
Of those projects underway, Mike Keiser Jr., the project manager for Sand Valley and 2018's grand opening of sister‑course Mammoth Dunes, said most of them are being built for the right reasons.
