An overview of golf in the Gulf Cooperation Council

KPMG Report 'An overview of golf in the GCC'

A new KPMG report provides an overview of the golf market in the GCC and its future prospects, supported by a survey of local golf course owners and operators about their operational performance.

Local golf course operators have pointed out that demand for golf in the GCC continues to outstrip supply during the peak seasons and golf is starting to establish itself as a major pastime albeit mainly for the expatriate population.
