  1. 1. What's the most you've ever paid for green fees?

    • < $50, I'm frugal
      2
    • $50 to $100, I like nice courses, but more than $100 is not worth it.
      11
    • $100 to $200, I can splurge once and a while.
      10
    • $200 to $300, for that "special' course
      7
    • > $300, Once in a lifetime round or I'm just rolling in the Benjamins.

$250 for the Mid Ocean Club on Bermuda, totally worth it. I was a guest in a group at Trump National Palace Verde (Los Angles) @$275.00 and would never go back for any price.  Consider? Probably not much more than $250. It would depend.

I'm not expensive.   The most I've spent per round is around $75 many years ago at the Bear in Traverse City.   We are headed  to Hilton Head next winter so I'm sure I'll spend more.  I believe $150 would be my limit

Just green fees?  $600.00 is my high limit for just green fees. That said, 98% of my rounds are in the $40, or lower bracket. I can walk 18 holes tomorrow at my home course for $8.00 after 12 noon. 

Now some of those higher green fees also required extra fees for a caddy. Other fees might include unlimited beverage visits by the cart lady. I played some course in SoCal that charge an environmental impact fee which I thought was kind of rude.

Well, it was $190 to play Spyglass Hill when I did, but I wasn't paying, the company was. Bought some promotional gift cards online a couple years ago for me and my buddies. Figured I paid about 60 bucks to play a $100 dollar "private" club. Very nice course and in great condition. The thing is, I live in NE Ohio and we are overbuilt for golf. Thus, there are a lot of bargains out there. We have played Fowler's Mill, a Pete Dye design with country club conditioning for $25 per ,booking on GolfNow. There are 3 nines there. The main 18 is on one side of the road, with the "Maple" nine on the other side. I asked the guy what it would cost if we wanted to play the Maple after our eighteen and he said "Ten bucks!" And that's w/cart! How do you beat that?

I don't believe I've ever paid more than $45 - $50. If memory serves, the course was nothing to write home about.

I'm not sure how much I would pay... maybe $150. And that would be if I could play with my son.

I just don't have the income to justify paying for a bucket list type of outing. Plus, having never been a serious fan of professional golf, playing a course such as Augusta, or Kiawah or Pebble Beach doesn't really have the draw it might have for a long-time fan. I also think you'd need a pretty good game to really appreciate those types of courses. I could be wrong.

Most I have paid is somewhere around $150 probably a little less. I would be willing to pay much more depending on the course? $500 for pebble yes! $500 for the Pete dye course at French lick? Nope. (I was looking at this course the other day just looking at different courses and designs). Augusta? Probably a $1000, any higher would do long term damage to my finances :)

About $100 for the resort course in Thailand last Sept.  Plus rentals, plus caddie, plus tip.

$90 for University Ridges outside Madison, about the same for Eagle Ranch (Palmer course in Eagle, CO), about the same a few years ago at The Classic near Brainerd, MN, about the same at Troy Burne (Lehman design) near the Twin Cities

all courses super nice -

I had a couple chats with members here, and the course I watched the LPGA on Sunday has weekend rates of S$450 ->  US $352....ouch.  I won't be playing here anytime soon.  That's the problem with an island, real estate is a limited resource.

$495... Only on Pebble Beach. In reality $100 is about my limit. But I will play Pebble Beach in my lifetime, mark my words, don't care if it's $3000 by then, I will play Pebble.

Damn, i'm gonna sound like a real cheapskate (or a proper Yorkshireman ;-)) but the most i have paid was £23 at Halifax Bradley Hall and that was half price as i was with a member.

One day i'd like to do a tour of the Scottish Open venues or play Wentworth.

$299 for Pinehurst #2...but that included a stay at the hotel as well.  This was about 8 years ago when they were running a special in the winter.  Lucked out with decent weather in late February.

Straight greens fees...hard to say since both Pinehurst and Kiawah included hotels.  Outside of those I did drop around $100 (plus caddie fees) to play #2 another time when they had a deal for CGA Interclub members.  I really can't remember paying any more than $100 to play other places.  I'd be glad to do so if the opportunity arose like at Sawgrass, Pebble Beach or Torrey Pines.

The most expensive course I've played was Punta Espada golf course in the Dominican Republic on my honeymoon. It was ~$300-350 which included a caddie.

I still would have paid it out of pocket, but fortunately the round was gifted to me from one of my wife's aunts/uncles who are also into golf.

The most I've paid for a round is $50-60. Like @Buckeyebowman mentioned earlier, golf is pretty cheap in Ohio with sites like Teeoff.com and Golfnow. I'd say easily 75%+ of my rounds are booked with one of those sites.

I'd pay $1,000 for Augusta no problem, but I wouldnt pay more than $400 for any other course in the world.

    • Trip to Oregon was no good, hit the driver terrible so I was basically scrambling every hole. Slowly working my way through my left misses off the tee. Mostly mechanics but also part mental with trusting it on the course. Can't reproduce the miss on the range. Finished one shot out of playoff for US Mid Am and US FourBall qualifiers.  Got a decent lead in our points race. Noticed that as I've been trying to improve rib cage and hip depth that the right ankle and foot would get unstable. Asked my trainer/pt about it and this is what he recommended. He just got certified in a foot program. Fingers crossed but for the first time I can really feel myself winding up the upper torso over a solid lower body. But doing it athletically not just faking it by not moving stuff around. It's the most rib cage rotation I've had going back without trying to force it. I like that I’m doing more work at the joint and that the joint is inside my right ankle at 4. I think the key for me with this foot tripod thing is to keep the right knee over the foot, not letting it rotate towards the middle of my stance. I can feel the "spiraling" effect. Basically my feet are more supinated with high arches. So when I go into my backswing the foot supinates incorrectly losing the big toe joint. Ideally you would want to "build" more of an arch of the foot on the backswing and use that "ramp" on the downswing. This would be another way of explaining it. If the arch of the foot collapses you you access to the deep front line. I just did a video for an instructor about how this relates to hip rotation (not pelvis rotation). He promotes himself as a biomechanics expert and teaches many pros lol  
    • Day 211.  Played 18 today, and really came to life in the second nine.  3 pars, bogey, 3 pars, closed out with two bogeys.   Shot a 39 for the second nine, something I'm not sure I've done at that course before (Hansen Dam).  I've had days where I hit a bunch of GIRs on that second nine, one day it was 7 GIR + 2 near, but I think I shot 40 or 41 on the second nine that day. 
    • And Chamblee said Poulter is the worst ball striker "By a lot" of all the players and Poulter won his singles match by 3 holes LOL...   Best result of the European players and most of the USA players, guess that's what you call an anomaly. Unbelievable how stupid that statement was, the Postman did himself proud....

    • I think I’m playing my wedges too far forward in my stance. That could explain the occasional fat shots and why I tend to hit the ball high off the face out of the rough.
