GCSAA operations surveys

Operations surveys collect data on golf course management.

In 2012, GCSAA began a series of surveys aimed at gathering in-depth operational data for the golf course management industry. The operations surveys provide data that allows superintendents to compare their facility to nationwide and regional data averages, as well as averages by facility type and green fee.

Note: To access the reports, you must be a GCSAA Class A, B, ISM or C member, and be logged in to the website.

If you have a question or would like to see a table of contents for any of these reports, please contact Greg Stacey, senior manager market research and data, at 800-472-7878, ext. 5152.
