More Koreans played golf last year, according to a survey released by Golfzon, which runs a simulated golfing business chain.
In a survey of 5,000 people aged between 20 and 69, those who enjoyed golf last year rose 21 percent from the previous year. Those who visited a golf course increased by 12 percent, while those who played indoors jumped 23 percent.
The sport is becoming more popular as more affordable golf courses, including indoor simulation ranges, are available.
By age, those in their 40s were the largest group with 32.6 percent, followed by those in their 50s at 28.3 percent and those in their 20s at 9.6 percent. By gender, 73.9 percent were men and 26.1 percent women.
