Energy prices are hurting golf clubs

A new survey has found that spiralling inflation is hitting golf clubs hard, with runaway energy costs impacting on them the most.

Research carried out by the Forum of Private Business has found that 94 per cent of small businesses such as golf clubs have seen energy bills increase over the past year, followed closely by rises in transport costs (92 per cent) and increases in the price of raw materials (82 per cent).

Further, 82 per cent of respondents said that overall rising costs have impacted adversely on their business. More than half (55 per cent) said they have impacted on staffing costs, and 74 per cent reported that cost increases have inhibited their growth.
