ClubCorp ONE program. Anyone got any experience with this?

7 posts in this topic

I'm joining my local club today, and they are part of the ClubCorp family.  I'm trying to decide on whether or not to pay the extra $50 a month for the ONE membership.  I don't travel a ton, but there are clubs in those places where I'd get some benefits (free greens fees, two free meals a month per club), and we would also get 50% off a la carte dining, not including booze.

Anyone have any experience with this?  The fine print in the brochure says something like "not guaranteed that all clubs participate, please call first" kind of thing.

I do not know much about Clubcorp, but I will tell you that whenever I have had *free* greens fees coupons elsewhere, it was always a non-walking course and the cart fee was always the same as the regular rate anyway.

You would hope, with how the golf industry is in Florida right now, that it is a real deal - hopefully you did not sign a contract and can test it month to month.

I'm not obligated to any period of time, and can "downgrade" with 30 days notice.  From what I understand, the exact benefits that each course provides are listed on the main corporate web site (some offer just greens fees, other offer both greens fees AND rental clubs).  Tee times at these clubs are also done on the web site which is pretty nice.  I think I did read that carts are not included but are required, so there is a fee involved.  But shoot, it aint bad to be able to get on decent (and in many cases private, some are daily fee though) course away from home, not have to lug clubs around if you don't want, etc.

My first true test will probably come in a couple months when the wife and I are headed out to Phoenix for a week.  I've read on the site that Seven Canyons in Sedona does the free greens fees and Taylor Made Burner rentals comp'd as well.  We shall see...

without a year commitment, anything is worth a try - like i said before, free greens fees has been a scam in my book (a $40 cart fee is ridiculous.) Something tells me if you can go month to month that it is definteily worth checking out.

I saw Feathersound in Clearwater as a place you can play - definitely worth it if you get down in that area - as a sister club I pay $35 off peak and $55 peak - if you get anything close to that, it is worth the trip.

:-) We joined the program several years ago and have found it to be of value. When vacation traveling we have taken advantage of fine dining as well as play at exclusive courses for cart fee only. The program is best where you live in areas near several participation clubs with or without dining facilities. Join it, you will probably find that you like it, if not, you can always resign.

I'm a member at a ClubCorp club in Los Angeles, and I'm pretty happy with the ONE program (though I probably don't use it as much as I should).  I take advantage of it whenever I'm in Palm Springs and play both of the ClubCorp courses (Mission Hills and Indian Wells CC).  I've also use it to play a fantastic course in south OC.  Would love to make it out to play Firestone, though haven't been able to find an excuse to go to Ohio.  Guess it depends on how much you travel.

They just started this at my club near Pittsburgh. My wife and I think that it's a no-brainer to do it as it stands now. It's $60 for us and replaces what ClubCorp calls Singature Gold (the package for traveling) and something called the Pittsburgh Society which gave us a 2 for 1 dinner once per month and some perks at other dining places. Our only thinking is that they might slowly raise prices to make it less of a deal for the 50% off dining. Our club had a bad reputation for food until they hired a new chef late last year. He's awesome and the food is much better. However overall we could eat better food for less money almost anywhere else within 20-30 minutes of the club. So we see this as a way to get more people eating at the club. A number of people have told me that they used to meet at the club for a drink ano then go somewhere else to eat. The golf perks are worth it alone though. One thing about the pricing. Funny story. There is another ClubCorp club in our area and we play matches against them every year. I played last year and a very successful trial attorney from the other club had us laughing at the prices. He paid $3.50 for a diet coke and 3.50 for a small bag of chips. Can of soda is $1.50 at his club and the chips are $1. He kept making jokes about it, but it really does highlight that a deal at one club may be different at another. So try it and see. But add up the savings and see if it's worth it.

    • What Are Your 2016 Golf Goals? Official Thread
      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.

    • Standing on Tee Marker for Aiding a Swing
      However, the ruling given by the RBs that, when Preferred Lies are in operation, a player may place his ball on a stray tee already in the ground, may suggest that he make take advantage of the tee marker.  A tee being defined as a device. But a tee is designed for the specific purpose of raising the ball off the ground. The tee marker is not designed to provide a footstand.
    • Your worst golf bargain
      Golf can be an obsession in terms of equipment, so my worse bargain this past offseason was stock piling several boxes of Golf Balls.  I over did it ten fold...duh.  
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      @pumaAttack, please read what I've said, I've answered your questions and spent my free time trying to help you. I'll try to be as clear as I can. It's not just about hitting positions or angles, you have to consider the entire motion and how you arrived there. The golf swing is a dynamic movement. There is no "perfect" A4 or A6, etc. @iacas has already answered this but if you go shallow to steep (what you're doing) the sweetspot is going to want to kick out. You can make compensations so it looks ok but it's not an effective way to hit the ball. It's going to cost you contact control, face control and speed. If you can go steep to shallow you'll have a better chance of creating the most speed and best contact. A sweetspot kicking out (which yours is) leads to pulls, inconsistent contact and glancing blows. We've answered your questions but here is more detail (more detail than most students should get): Shallow to steep = Not Effective, the weight of the clubhead is going to want to be "thrown" out which will have the club working across the ball. It will also widen the arc so in order not to fat it you have to make compensations with your hands/body. Steep to shallow = Most Effective, potentially creates more speed, on downswing you can load into the ground and rotate while still swinging out (without trying to swing out). Easier to rotate and maintain your tilt because if the sweetspot is kicking out (widens the arc) you have to do something to make room. Very, very few good players swing across the ball on the downswing. Nobody is out to get you, I had no idea you were still on Evolvr, it would have been helpful to post something like "Here is my latest swing, here's what my Evolvr instructor said my priority is". If you did I would have never posted what I did. I was just trying to help. If @iacas offers his opinion, rather than take the defensive route, give him the benefit of the double and listen to what he's saying, he knows what he's talking about. Even after this post I get the feeling you'll want to say "But my A6 is perfect!", I'd recommend you take a look at these threads.
