Many golf courses in America charge as much as $300.00 per round. Even worse, golfers continue to pay these outragous green fees! Paying this amount means that it's: $75.00 per hr. (4 hr. round), or $16.00 per hole, or $21.00 per drive (14 drives), or $8.33 per putt (36 putts), or $75.00 per par 3 (4 per course). Any way you cut it, it's unbelievably expensive.
Why do golfers pay these kinds of fees when they can play in their own locale for mabye $35.00? If we could only reach a consensus, as golfers, to refrain from paying these high green fees prices would take a precipitous drop. Just like anything else if demand drops so do prices.
Think about this the next time you hand over your credit card…$8.33 per putt? Wow!
