Rounds played show June uptick but remain down for '11

A slight increase in rounds played in June provided a rare uptick in participation trends, which still show a decline for the year.

The total number of rounds played in the U.S. increased 0.8 percent in June, but left the year-to-date tally down 4.3 percent compared with the same six months in 2011.

The June gain followed consecutive, monthly declines in March, April and May.

At public-access courses, rounds played increased 1 percent in June while at private facilities they declined marginally 0.1 percent. Year-to-date, public-access courses are down 4.5 percent; private facilities are down 3.9 percent.
