Daddy, What's 'Golf'?

Millennials make up 25% of the US population, and they aren’t playing golf. Golf is too time-consuming; the “Good walk spoiled” takes over four hours. It’s too exclusive, insufficiently diverse, too expensive, too complicated.

On the other hand, millennials do like Frisbee Golf. Almost as much as Co-Ed Kickball, skateboards, and fixie bikes.


“A Game of Golf? Not for Many Millennials,” Sara Germano, Wall Street Journal

“Sneakernomics: How Golf Lost The Millennials,” Matt Powell, Forbes

“Golf’s youth problem: Millennials aren’t playing,” Jacob Pramuk, CNBC
