It’s not a perfect bell curve, but the results of this month’s One Bearded Golfer poll question makes me think our crack research team is getting better at creating our monthly questions.
And in the spirit of putting your money where your mouth is, I think I learned more about my audience from the results of the February poll question than perhaps any prior survey.
In this month’s poll question, I inquired as to our Readers’ maximum budgets for a buddies golf trip getaway.
The idea was basically a way to find out if my views on the subject were generally in line with the golfing public, or if I was a zealot who unfortunately casts his preconceived notions of acceptability upon his casual golfing friends.
I wanted to know how much you, Dear Readers, were willing to budget and spend for a guys (or gals) golf getaway. Not bucket-list stuff like Pebble Beach or St. Andrews, but a more run-of-the-mill long weekend or few days away.
What our results show is that while there is a cheaper faction of golfers amongst the growing readership, a majority of respondents indicated that they were willing to spend somewhere between $1,000.00 to $1,500.00 to enjoy a change of scenery and make some new memories.
Is that really reasonable? I have no idea. But I do know I’m looking forward to being someplace warm and green very, very soon. Even if I have to sacrifice this spring’s razor and scissor budget to do it.
