The USGA believes that everyone who wants to play golf has the opportunity to benefit from a welcoming, affordable and enjoyable experience on an environmentally and economically sustainable golf course.
One of the most important factors in the golfer experience is pace of play – both the overall duration of the round and the flow of play during the round.
We are working to develop data-based best practices, tools and solutions to help course managers improve pace of play at their facilities. Armed with these resources, courses around the country will be able to make their operation more efficient while also providing a first-class golf experience for their customers
In order to achieve these goals, we will work closely with other golf associations around the world, including The R&A, PGA of America, LPGA, Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, National Golf Course Owners Association, American Society of Golf Course Architects, Club Managers Association of America, as well as state and regional golf associations, to improve the on-course experience for golfers of all levels and backgrounds.
Through close collaboration, we can overcome one of golf’s biggest challenges and ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy this great game.
