Countries with most golf courses per capita

Share Button
Golf Digest compiled a list of all the world’s golf courses in 2007 and came up with some interesting facts about the modern game. This list has always intrigued Aussie Golfer, countries with the most golf courses per capita.
  1. Scotland (9,379 people per course)
  2. New Zealand (10,374)
  3. Australia (11,063)
  4. Republic of Ireland (14,127)
  5. Northern Ireland (14,353)
  6. Canada (15,480)
  7. Wales (18,321)
  8. United States (18,514)
  9. Sweden (21,295)
  10. England (27,725).

(countries with fewer than 500,000 people were excluded).

My biggest reaction to this list is that many countries here have a lot of sheep in them. Maybe read the list upside down for golf courses per sheep.

    I was at a tournament recently and there were big horn sheep hanging out on the course, so I think you’re on to something. I like your blog! I hope you don’t mind that I liked to you from mine.
