Item description for Golfonomics by Stephen Shmanske...

This book presents Stephen Shmanske's innovative research combining two of his passions, golf and economics. He develops two themes --- the use of economics to explore institutional aspects of the business side of golf and the use of golf statistics to shed light on several vexing issues in economics. These two themes are addressed in two settings --- the economics of golf course management and the economics of professional golf. Examples from golf course management are covered in separate chapters on golf cart usage, golf course maintenance, and the problem of slow play. Examples from professional golf include the causal relationships from practice to skill to earnings, the tournament compensation model, and the measurement of gender discrimination.

Reviews - What do customers think about Golfonomics?

Low level sports economics  May 11, 2008
I found this a most uninteresting study. There is so much interesting about golf clubs. For example, the fact that they are 'club goods' which operate both as public and private goods. Also that the investments in club technology that are making many new courses too easy and the fact that golf is a time-intensive recreation that is losing popularity compared to other more vivid recreations.

None of this in this book - just very low level economics with, for example, an explanation of what regression analysis is about. Unimaginative economics to someone who, like the author, is both a keen golfer and van economist.

I threw my copy in the water hazard.
