Analysis of Performance

Note: Benchmark data are annual figures.

This is a quarterly measure. The target of 69,500 18 - holes rounds through the third quarter of 2019 was not met.  Cool rainy weather in May and June contributed to the lower than average rounds during these prime operating months and these losses carried over into the 3rd quarter.

The golf courses will begin offering "Off Season" discounts at the courses this fall and other marketing options are being evaluated to encourage increased play. 

Metric Definition
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.

Benchmark Information
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.
