  1. OK....Truth....You can go to Ireland for a week and spend $1000 a head and play courses like the one down the street. Stay at Motel 6's.. And fly cheapass air..Like Thomas Cook that just went belly up...Right now course costs in $...Ballybunion 290, Old Head 390, Waterville 250, Tralee 275, Lahinch 275, Royal Portrush 290, Royal County Down 300.....If you go 3000 plus miles to play golf....Those are the places you want to go first few trips...Do you get in your car....drive 3 hours to play the local muni for $20....NYET...So why go to Ireland to play below average courses....No. You go to play the worlds great links courses....and they are not cheap. I set up trips...Not bunches of trips but a few every year. I have 4 guys going next August. Single rooms at nice places. Playing the standard rotation of great courses in SW Ireland. 6 nights, 6 rounds, bus, driver...NO Air. $5200 a head. Asking cost of a trip to far away special places is like asking...How much should my Driver cost. Some guys have drivers that were a $100 and play fine. Some spend over $500...Special Trip 101...If you have to be concerned re cost...Maybe don't go. Everybody has a story of some special nice course they played in far away places for cheap money....As with most everything in life...You get what you pay for....
  2. Great resource is top100golfcourses.com I would suggest go to Sunningdale...Play em both. Not a cheap day but it's the worlds best 36 on one property. Ranked higher than Winged Foot, Baltusrol. About $425 for 36 holes $300 for 18.
  3. I'm new to this site so a tad late to this topic...A few suggestions. Muirfield teetimes are thru their website. If you wish to book mid summer...You must lock a teetime up about 16 months in advance. All next summer is sold out and has been for a while. The one thing I do that reduces cost the most is book a house or apartment for group. My priority is always the golf...rooms are secondary. I have booked apartments a par 4 from 1st tee Old. It cuts your cost in half for lodging. The whole thing around advance tee times at the Old makes Scotland a tad difficult. With the exchange rates the way they have been now and the last few years...It's a great time to go. I just booked teetimes for Carnoustie for next summer...Booked our apartment and am interacting with the other courses we are playing. Kingsbarns always twice as 2nd round half price and it is the best in St Andrews...North Berwick is also a must. Fill in with a few others in the area around those. All good stuff. I've done 20 trips to the British Isles and have set them up myself after figuring out what the real costs were after the first few trips...
