The denominator of the equation has been stuck at 12 for a long time, while the numerator continues to grow at a rapid pace.

I have also heard of plans to add another course south of 44, but at this point that is just a plan and no construction has begun. Even if construction of the course started tomorrow, it would take at least a couple of years for the course to open. During that time, lots and lots of new houses will be completed

My best guess, using reasonable assumptions, is that at least three or four new championship courses need to added in the next 5 years to keep the ratio somewhere close to where it was when Belle Glade opened in 2014.
Don't forget to consider an aging population. Also not all new homes being sold will have golfers.
