Please make sure and do whatever demographic studies you might need to ensure that you will have enough clientele to make it viable. People in Peru generally don't play golf, can't afford golf clubs, but I think that could change if it was more accessible. In my opinion very few businesses can stay afloat that only cater to foreigners! Anyways, I like the idea.
I think his idea is great. It will do very well if he charges democratic rates. I don't understand why golf is so expensive. There's no reason for it to be so expensive. It's just a field with grass with some holes in it. And cheap golfclubs are made in China.
The best thing is not charge an annual fee but a daily fee to use the golf course. And extra money can be made buy renting out golfclubs.
Put a snackbar on the site that sells burgers, salchipapas, fries, icecream and pizzas and you will make good money.
Golf lessons will be popular as few people know how to play it.
Golf lessons for children will do well too as I never heard of a places that does it.
Most people you see playing golf at present are middleaged to old rich people but if it becomes affordable then it will attract a younger crowd and children.
I am sure that if someone starts a democratically priced golf course then he will take away customers from the existing ones and the existing ones will drop their prices dramatically.
