Golf Courses - Total Cumulative Participation

Desired Result: Above Target

Analysis of Performance

Note: Benchmark data are annual figures.

The target for the second quarter was missed this year because of cool weather and above average precipitation in May. The lower number of rounds were offset by higher than average rounds played in the first quarter. Overall golf rounds played are still slightly under the target for the year, but good weather in the coming months could bring the rounds closer to the target.

Metric Definition

The total number of particpants 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 particpants by providing a quality experience at City golf courses. The Parks Department also influences particpation through marketing and outreach of these facilites.

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.
