What’s The Most You’ve Paid For A Round of Golf?

The GolfBlogger is doing a little bit of an informal, unscientific survey here: What’s the most you’ve paid for a round of golf? Name the course, location and price.

For me, it was $85 at the Little Traverse Bay Golf Club in Harbor Springs, Michigan. Nice course, great vistas.

  1. $85 at a private course in Pennsylvania, where my brother-in-law used to play.

    Nice thing about our munis around my city…the most you pay walking for a round of 18 is $18, even at peak times on Saturday morning.  After 3 on a weekday (twilight) is $11…all you can play.

  2. The first time I ever played (about 20 months ago) was because my wife told her Dad I’d take him golfing when he visited.  I asked a few co-workers for suggestions on where to play and we ended up playing at Timber Creek in southeast Houston.  The cost was 57.00 each.  I was shocked and decided golf was way to expensive.  Later, wanting to play more, I learned there were plenty of courses to play for under 20.00.  I have not been back to Timber Creek.


  3. On a pure price point, it’d be $90 for a round at Hidden River Golf and Casting Club (the only course I’ve seen that has a bunker shaped like a fish).  However, on the same trip, I paid an $85 upgrade fee to play Bay Harbor Country Club.  Worth every penny.

    Having said all that, I am really spoiled where I live…I am about a good par 5 distance away from Milham Park Golf Course, which is a) beautiful, and b) extremely reasonable ($24 to walk 18 anytime).  GolfBlogger…if you ever find yourself out in the AZO, check it out.


  4. It was about $100, but that was $70 greens and $30 cart at Ohio State Golf Club / Scarlet course.  Second was about $80 on Lake Buena Vista at Disneyworld (that was greens with cart included). 

    I did pay $65 to play nine as well at Bald Head Island, NC.

  5. I paid $175 to play the Azalea course at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa.  It’s on the Robert Trent Jones Trail and the course was in great shape.

  6. The most was $500 to play Shadow Creek in Las Vegas.  Worth it to see once, wouldn’t do it on a regular basis.  The closest to being worth it was Cabo del Sol in Cabo san Lucas last week.  $350 per round.  It is an annual treat for me but I would gladly spend my last $350 to play there one more time.


  7. Being a 5 handicap golfer i’m always on the look out for great championship courses that you can play. After reading a review on http://www.golfcourseworld.co.uk of the west course at Wentworth Golf Club, i was surprised to find out it was open to visitors. I paid £265 for just 18 holes, but thought it might be worth it to play such a famous course. I was wrong, it was worth it because i shot 103 and took nearly 5 1/2 hours to get round. Now thats good value!!!!!!
