$750 a year, or $63 a month. Plus $150 a year for driving range unlimited. :) I know i'm getting a good deal, and I love the people out there. Not the nicest course in the world, or the toughest, but its not trashy and the greens are the best around!

A long flat pasture (7K from the tips) that has new owners who are trying to get it back into shape after many years of neglect costs me $500 year & it includes range balls and one league - cart fee is $6 to $8.

At my home course, I pay about $100/month. I joined their mini-membership which basically is a $10 discount and a free round after ten paid rounds, but I plan on joining fully in a few years. I play a lot of courses around here so it isn't prudent right now to be a full member somewhere. Overall I spend probably $200-$250/month on golf, that's including the driving range (I usually buy a $200 credit that lasts me 2 months).

I play at a course with 27 holes and pay $44 on a month to month plan for unlimited green fees on the 9 course with unlimited driving range. Also, get a discounted rate for the 18, and the course is a top course in Ohio.
Dont play the 18 alot just cause the 9 is nice and at the rate I play it comes put to a couple bucks per round, most of the time even less without counting driving range.

BTW this is in the wrong section...

Looks like I win so far, only because I'm on the high school golf team. I (my parents.lol) only pay 75 dollars a year for a membership(less than 10 dollars a month). If you are on the golf team you get a big discount. For other people it's like 350-400 a year. It's a bad course though with no driving range. Still it's great though for the price

Wow i wish i had some of these fees in my area.

The club in my town is $1400 a year if you live in this town(i do) or $2800 for out of town. It is unlimited play with $10 for a cart, plus i can bring a member for $30. It is open from April-May until November-December. I am not a member this year but will probably join next season since this was my first.

The courses i usually play are minimum $45/$10 for a cart and maximum $70/$15 for a cart.

I get a membership at a public course(so no perks, really) for Christmas and its 500 dollars for 365 days. Unlimited green fees, cart for 18 is $12. To add in unlimited range balls its another 250 yearly.

Golf is cheap around here. I don't belong to anything but I pay $12 for a twilight round, $20 full rate or $25 weekdend rate. A 10 play card is $150 or $175 if you want to play weekend days. I could save a tiny bit by paying the annual fee ($770) but it's not worth it to have to be tied down to one course (we have a whopping 2 in the area, lol).

Not cheap here in NYC. Because our piece of garbage mayor keeps upping the prices each year(taxes I think), our public courses are now $65 per person, with cart. The sad part is, they are so crowded, a round is usually 5 hours, the one time my brother and I played one recent Sunday morning, 6 hours. AND because we were a walk on, getting there at 8:30 am, the last time on a Tuesday we had to wait 90 minutes just to tee off. Simply disgusting! And another round over 5 hours. Yet if we go to LI, as a non resident in Nassau County, it's pretty much the same($60 - $70), rarely waiting more than 30 minutes to tee off, and rarely the courses rarely get backed up. Most are just over 4 hours a round, at most under 5 hours.

When it comes to private courses here in Toronto, it isn't cheap at ALL. Typcial costs at a private club would be something like this...

Initation Fee - $10K - $60K depening on the course and payable over maximum 10 years.
Yearly Dues - $2K - $6K payable in 6 months (January to July)
Food and Beverage Minimums - $450-$600 per year

When it comes to public courses, you are looking to pay $5K-$7K a year for un-limited play at a really nice course, or a 12, 20, 50, 100 round Pack that may cost say, $60-$90. So for example if you bought the 50 round pack at a $75per round discount, it would be $75 x 50 = $3750.

Entry level public courses will still cost you a minimum, $2K for unlimited play!!

I do not belong to any club but I do have a resident card. I pay $26 for 18 on weekdays and 28$ on the weekend (no cart). In the summer I play about 2 rounds a week which adds up to about 216$ a month. Once summer is over I can only get 1 round a week in usually.

the big private club here in town is sort of like that. You pay 3000 dollars in either a 2 year or 3 year plan and then its 160 per month plus a 25 dollar minimum food and drink fee(whether you actually spend 25 or not). The place is a nice place..pool, golf, tennis, lots of family functions and parties and what not but on the downside its kind of uppity when you get involved in anything outside of golf and the course while nicely maintained is not worth that kind of investment for me as a single male. Works out great for families, I suppose.

I pay $160 per month unlimited golf. No initiation fee when I joined June of 2009. They gave me a range key for 6 months free range ball that they haven't asked to be returned :)
They also let my wife play free once a week or so, and have let me take a cart w/o charge if I ask. ( had a bad hamstring for a few months now).
Pretty good deal, but the reciprocities are really great. I have access to one other club in town and some great courses within 1-2hrs drive, and in Victoria,BC. just a ferry ride away.

    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
    • I've been in a scenario similar before, except I was the player who went over the time and it was an assistant coach who found my first ball as I was addressing my provisional.  Yeah, it really sucks to find the first ball after it's already been declared lost. Knowing that you could have avoided the two strokes if you'd just looked "right over there" instead, but the ball was lost and now at least you aren't out the $4 of a nice ball (assuming you pay for balls, I know many high school/college golfers don't during school tournaments). There was no discussion or arguments on the course, I just told him to toss me the ball and continued to play my provisional, but after the round he pulled me aside to tell me I should have just played the original ball since it was found before I hit the provisional. In all honesty I probably would've scored worse from the position of the original ball (deep in a bush requiring a drop that still would leave me in a bad position), and the ball was already lost. A lost ball stays lost, and if you find it after it's no different than coming out of the woods with an extra couple balls left by earlier golfers. I've also had the coach/caddy of another player in summer tournaments try to twist the rules against me as some kind of "gotcha!" at the scoring tent (where he wasn't even supposed to be allowed) over an event that happened very early in the round. I had pointed out to his player that you can't play from inside of an ESA like you can with other lateral hazards, and apparently that upset him when the player agreed with me rather than him so he claimed I looked too long somewhere on the front 9 for my ball. I hadn't looked for that long, I found it before the other players even started playing their golf balls, but he got himself worked up enough that I just withdrew and left without signing my scorecard or dealing with any of that hassle. This was a guy who made a big deal on the first tee (and multiple other times throughout the round) about being a PGA Professional and that we should all listen to his advice (against the rules) because he was a pro. Those incidents, among others I've encountered along the way, have led me to believe that the people who want to bend the rules are most often the people not actually playing in the event itself, but those who are "indirectly participating" as a caddy/coach/etc. There are no consequences for them directly, if caught the blame lands on the player, but if their players do well they can take the credit. They also usually know enough about the rules to be dangerous, either from intentional or unintentional misinterpretation.
    • After having a golf simulator for 2 months my golf scores have stabilized tremendously. Previously I used to play in the mid to high 90s. My last 3 scores has been 89, 89 and 90 on tough courses. The biggest improvement is that I have completed a golf wedge matrix with 1/3, 2/3 and full swing distances and now I am able to hit the greens over 80% of of the time within 30 yards to 90 yards. This limits most bad holes to bogeys.  There are stretches of 9 holes that I have only 2 over. However, my slices and pulls sometimes resulted in big numbers on a few holes. With the golf simulator, I can see clearly that I still have an out to in swing. When I consciously pretend to have a glove under my right arm pit I hit the balls really well with no pull or slice in practice. However, on the course my pulls and slices often come back which results in double bogeys or even triple bogeys when I lose my balls. I am really optimistic. With the simulator and instant feedback I think I will be able to resolved my out to in swing problem in a few months.
    • Define long term. Because we are past the sixth month you wrote about. Vaccines aren’t new. The vaccine is proving to be pretty damn affective against the current variants and the more people get vaccinated the fewer future variants we will have. This vaccine is not going to stop every coronavirus ever. It’s not a SARS vaccine for example. Or a MERS vaccine. Waiting to see that given the evidence we have now is willful stubbornness. And the answer to your final question is that it will vary but even if it’s one year like the flu vaccine then we can have a lot more of a return to normalcy that you so crave, and fewer dead people, in the meantime and sooner. Look, you showed your hand when you called it an extended “clinical trial.” You don’t know what you’re talking about so you are pretending that you are waiting for more information when all of the information you should need as a member of society is out there. Vaccines are not new science. Even this type isn’t new. At the end of the day what you think are “reasons” are actually just excuses. I’m a contrarian. But I’m also not a moron. I understand and read the science. The data. You’re willfully not doing so, or willfully setting such a high bar to clear that you’re able to justify your inaction. It’s also your duty to protect others, which you are failing to do right now. If I could take a pill that had all the same data and information as the current vaccines that guaranteed to 95% effectiveness that I would never seriously injure someone else in a car accident I would take it immediately. Even though the odds of that are also pretty low.
