A FEW AFFORDABLE GOLF COURSES WORTH PLAYING

The USGA encourages golfers to play more and to the avid golfer, many would like to experience a few of the courses that the pros play.  These courses however tend to be on the expensive side and truly not for everyone.  A few examples of the pros tournament courses are as follows:

Pebble Beach.................................$ 530.00
TPC Sawgrass................................$ 375.00
Pinehurst # 2..................................$ 410.00
Kiawah Island (Ocean Course).......$370.00.
Chambers Bay.................................$ 299.00 (walking only) but caddies available for $80 to $100
Course was just recently the site of this years US Open.

If these courses are not available  to anyone, there are many more good courses worth paying for
at more reasonable rates.  A few examples are as follows:

Seaview Golf Club (Bay Course)   Galloway, NJ.........................$ 99.00..........$ 148.00 for 36 holes same day.  Course sits across the bay from Atlantic City and is the home of the LPGA, Shop Rite Classic.

Toftrees Golf Resort  State College, PA..........$55.00 to $63.75  or $46.75 after 3:00 PM...Tee times can be made on Golfnow.com

Coronado Golf Club  Coronado, CA..........$53.00 plus a $16.25 online booking fee on their site.  Course is a 10 minute drive from San Diego

Hawks Landing  Orlando, Fl............$55.00 or $49.00 after 2:00 PM.  Course is part of the Marriott
World Center hotel, close to Disney Village and tee times can be made on Golfnow.com.

If anyone has the opportunity to play these more affordable golf courses, I am sure you will not be disappointed.  Please feel free to share any worthwhile courses you have experienced with our followers.

I played Kiawah before. When I played it was under $300. Nice course but I'm not sure worth the $300

I won't play mini golf courses over $10 so I highly doubt that I play any of these

Some aren't too bad. Its only the pro tour courses that make you pay to wazoooo.

I'd luv to play some of those top courses but they are WAY beyond my golf-playing-budget

I've played lower priced courses and a couple of the higher priced courses and in some cases the lower priced courses were every bit as good as the higher priced ones in my opinion

Nice selection of courses. I'll have to look them up when I'm in some of those areas

Hahahaha...Pebble Beach. does playing there also include living there for a month? that's $60 shy of what I pay in rent

cost is one thing but frustration is another. I'd go crazy trying to play some of those top ranked courses
