Analysis of Performance
- This is a quarterly measure.
- Rounds played through the 3rd quarter of 2021 exceeded the target of 69,500 rounds played. Golf continues to be popular when the weather is nice, and we have seen sustained interest after the increases in 2020.
The total number of participants at all three City of Fort Collins Golf Courses.
Why Is This Important?
This metric provides an indication of the popularity of these facilities which, in turn, indicates how well the facilities are meeting the needs of the community. The annual target is determined based on keeping revenue greater than expenses and each quarter is adjusted for seasonality.
City Organization Impact on Performance
High – The Parks Department directly influences the number of participants by providing a quality experience at City golf courses. The Parks Department also influences participation through marketing and outreach of these facilities.
This metric contains benchmark data for cities that offer 9 and 18-hole municipal golf courses similar to those in Fort Collins. Regional similarities create similar weather and economic conditions, and give these benchmarks comparable operating seasons, administrations, and demographics. Private courses were not included since they do not generally share similar data.
