Economic Impact On The Game

The game of golf drives significant economic activity across the State of Nevada. The industry’s impact includes not only direct spending and investment by golf facilities, but also golf-related consumer spending on equipment and apparel, golf tourism, and new golf-related residential construction.

Key Findings
In 2018, the Nevada golf industry’s $1.242 billion of direct economic activity generated secondary and tertiary activity that resulted in:
• $1.981 billion of direct, indirect, and induced economic output;
• 17,505 direct, indirect, and induced jobs;
• $701.3 million in wages and benefits;
• $138.6 million in state and local tax revenue.

Study Highlights
• Nevada’s 88 regulation golf facilities (which managed 98.5 18-hole equivalent courses) and alternative facilities generated $301.0 million in operating revenue.
• Golf supports the state’s tourism industry, attracting travelers to different parts of the state and offering an outdoor recreational activity that complements other popular tourist activities. Travelers who played golf
while on a trip to Las Vegas, Reno, or the rest of the state spent an estimated $744.3 million.
• Golf championships also drive tourism. In 2018, Nevada hosted two PGA TOUR Events: the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, played at the TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas, and the Barracuda Championship, played at Montrêux Golf and Country Club, near Reno/Tahoe.
• New golf home construction was occurring at Sun City Mesquite at Conestoga Golf Club, Lake Las Vegas at Reflection Bay, The Summit at the Summit Club, Tuscany Village at Chimera Golf Club, and The Pointe and Wintercreek at Somersett Golf and Country Club.
