What Does Your Membership Cost?


Recommended Posts

Our club is $2500 per year for my wife and I.  Unlimited golf with cart 7 days a week, however, I walk twice a week.  Range balls are extra, and there is no restaurant only a snack bar.

 

As members we get half off any rate at the course across town managed by the same company.  Comes in handy when we have a tournament and our course is closed.

I forgot to mention that my course also has a Preferred Players Card.  The $295 cost gets you a 50% discount on any rate, anytime.  Most of the guys I play with have the card.  It was not the best deal for my wife and I for as much as we play.

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Mines free (I don't belong to a club  )   MDGolfHacker

Pebble Creek GC in Tampa........retired membership is $107/month plus $158 for unlimited cart. Since I volunteer 2 mornings a week, the cart fee is waived, leaving only $107.   They (Ace Golf) own

My golf membership costs 575Euro per year. This does not include carts or range balls but you have access to play the course 7 days per week. The course it self is consistently ranked in the top 20 go

Not a member of an official club but I pay $30 dollars a month for unlimited range balls, clinics and 85% discount tee times at a course near my apartment. Great for a low budget golfer!

I don't have a membership anywhere. I use GolfNow. Play cheap most places. However, at a place we play occasionally, they offered a $300 yearly membership. We, for a moment, thought wow we would consider that. The course being under new management and being taken care of and looking in great shape. Until we saw the sign for a yearly cart.... $900. That $1200 total. I'll just keep playing for $20 a pop, cart included.

Man, I'm glad I live where I love. I don't think I could ever afford an extra 3-400 a month for golf like some of you do.

I switched to all muni golf.The rates are $50 -to- $185ish.The $50 are borderline goat ranch at times.I was playing 3 to 4 rounds a week and getting very costly.Golf ain't cheap

Keep it in the short stuff

Great Life membership w/unlimited golf at dozens of local & regional courses (cart not included) = $50 per month = $600 per year

Cart pass for two local GL courses = $300 for the season

Range pass at 1 local course = $200 for the season

$1100 per year + optional cart fee for courses played away from my two "home courses."

Mine is $500 per month plus cart fee of 22 range included - not something I could afford on a pastor's salary so thank you congregation. I pay cart fee and additional costs. I can handle that. :)

Congregation paid for your golf??? How'd you swing that? That is a nice gift.  Subliminal sermon messages?

Gotcha, when you said well conditioned it made me think of that, we played it two years ago and it was in phenomenal shape. Very fun track as well.  I think I heard some of the other guys mention River Forest.  Is it fully private?

My local 9 that I'm a member of costs $645.00 a season, and that includes the driving range pass.  Youth memberships are $125.00 with range pass.  My course is as nice, or nicer than the 18 hole course that charges $1730.00 a season.

if you guys are married with children I'm not sure how you convince your wife on this one.  I'd love to join a club but that would mean I'd be "busy" at least 2-3x a week and with 2 kids - 10 and 13 - she's just not havin it.

Oh - she has absolutely zero interest in playing (which is okay by me) and, so far neither kid does either.

Maybe that's the "in" ... get one of my kids interested ??

I told mine, I'm getting my game ready for my little girl, she was a new born at the time.:)

 

As for my wife, I told her it's a great way to exercise she can walk with me. There's tennis courts, and pools and saunas. Plus great food to boot.

 

Except for the locker and the restaurant I've not used any other facilities at my club.

60th birthday present! Some of the MGSers have played there. It's a Tom Fazio course with a to die for practice area. I wish I could use it more. Just finishing a building project that has been very time consuming.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Yep - when I was a young adult I belonged to a club in Indiana. I played every weds afternoon and took the boys to play nine every Sunday afternoon allowing my wife free time for herself. It worked nicely.
