Abstract:
With basketball such a dominant sport in the state, it's easy to forget the little, round, white golf ball, made popular by retirees, vacationers, and the state's professional golfers. So popular is the game that between 1990 and 1999, golf courses in North Carolina grew from 474 to 589. The state now ranks ninth nationwide, and more courses will be built in 2000. All of this is good for golfers, because it makes developers create better courses to keep the players coming back.
