Check out Tee Time Golf Pass book
Last year 3 of your courses were listed as discount destinations
Last year's prices:
Calderone was $25 weekday and $40 for 4 players before 1pm
Cascades was $15 M-F and $25 for 4 players on the weekend
Coyote Preserve was $35 M-T before 2; $45 M-Th before 2 and $49 on the weekend from 12-4pm
There are other savings in the book, usually something like just a cart fee. The book is $35 and my group definitely gets its money's worth. Now with Covid and the increase of golfers and the increase in prices I'm not sure what this year will bear.
I figure if I get everyone on board early enough and can start working on tee times before the season I can pull better deals. I want to say it was Cascades that does groupgolfer deals I played there last year for like $18 so I'll keep my eye on that as well as the golf now app there are usually some pretty cheap deals there. I'm the oldest of the group at 31 so no senior discounts just yet lol
This is good solid advice. I'd probably lean towards plan A, but be flexible. If you get to week three and you feel like either you've nailed it or you're lost, then go back sooner. My problem is my coach gets booked up about a month in advance, so I need to pin down my lessons well before they happen. He is reasonably responsive to emails sent in between though so that helps.
@iacas - how much contact from a student of yours would you think was reasonable? Obviously emailing every day with videos and so on is more than would be reasonable, but I kind of feel like anything more than a quick check in is over the top.
