Analysis of Performance
Note: Benchmark data are annual figures.

Golf activity was under the quarterly target in Q1 2023 due to inclement weather throughout the spring. However, participation increased as the season continued and the weather improved.  After a busy summer and fall, we ended the year well above target.

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.
