i play a course called majestic oaks here in minnesota. they have 3 courses: signature (nice, little long though, i think it was 7000 last time i played), crossroads (like a municipal course), and a 9 hole executive course with 2 par 4s.
i bought an $80 card so i can play 18 with a cart on the crossroads whenever for $18 including tax. the executive with the card is $6, and i think the signature is $32 with a cart. without the card it's $50 with a cart to play the crossroads.
i played other courses around me, but the value, variety, and proximity made this my de facto course.
now if they would stop hosting massive private tournaments all the time i would get more rounds in.
