No other state’s golf searches cracked the 50% mark, but many other markets showed significant golf-related internet activity, including several known golf-obsessed regions in Florida. Other regions betrayed specific golf industry ties with their search results, such as Augusta, Ga. (40% golf searches) and Bend, Oregon, near Bandon Dunes (39%).
But golfers in these traditional hot spots aren’t the only ones desperate to find a drill to do at home, or a tee time at a golf course that’s still open. Regions from all over the country showed up in the study, including Salisbury, Maryland (45%); North Platte, Nebraska (40%); and Sioux City, Iowa (39%).
