Golfshake 2019 Highly Recommended Golf Courses

By: Golfshake Editor | Mon 27 Jan 2020 | Comments


As we start the new year and new decade, Golfshake once again compiles its list of golf courses achieving the 'Highly Recommended' status for 2019. The golf clubs achieving this continues to rise with over 500 now on the 2019 list.

Online reviews are now an essential part of our daily lives and used by consumers looking for product recommendations and buying confidence, as well as a promotional tool and experience validation for suppliers and retailers. 

Specifically within golf, the use of online independent reviews continues to increase in importance for golfers, with over 74% stating, in the Golfshake 2019 Survey, that they read online reviews when looking where to play. This is up 4% from 2018.  Additionally, the use of reviews for researching where to play comes in a close third in terms of important tools/services, just behind 'word of mouth' and golf club website information.
