Golf is Australia’s most popular sport

An annual report just released by the Australian Sports Commission has shown golf was Australia’s top ranked club-sport in 2008.Gerringong Golf CourseGolf topped the list in 2008, overtaking tennis with a 29% increase in participation!

This adds further weight to the argument that golf in Australia is more accessible than anywhere else in the world.

With Tiger on his way and Australian Golf lobbying the federal government I can only see participation increasing over the next few years.

Australia hasĀ 1520 courses and only 21 million people, we’ve got plenty more room on the golf course for more converts.

    Interesting… Golf is definitely the most popular sport in the world that can be played solo.

    I am surprised its THE most popular in Australia…I would have thought it would be rugby or something similar.
