Golf continues to be a popular recreational activity. National Golf Foundation statistics (Table 1) provide a glimpse of this popularity. According to these numbers, 24.5 million persons (11.6 percent of the U.S. population age 12 and above) played golf in the U.S. in 1993. This represents a 1.2 percent decline since the number of U.S. golfers peaked in 1990 at 27.8 million. After falling to 24.8 million in 1991, the U.S. golf population has remained relatively steady.
