Golf’s Future?

We have seen more golf course closures than opened for the fifth straight year.  Is this a correctional curve from past ‘booms’ in course openings or a trend toward a larger problem? The attached graph would indicate golf indeed has a huge problem.  The decline of the youth playing the game suggests that golf’s future is most likely in dire straits!  Many experts believe the explosion of electronic media options that captivate kids attention is the culprit for junior golf’s decline.  Why put in the hard work of practicing outdoors when you can hit it like Tiger Woods on your XBox right?  The PGA, USGA, and NGA have all been trying to fix this problem with little success.  Do you have the solution?
