3 Tips to Save Money in Golf

The only sure rule in golf is he who has the fastest cart never has to play the bad lie.
Mickey Mantle

Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into a even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose.
 – Winston Churchill

Golf is a good walk spoiled.
 – Mark Twain

Golf can be a an expensive sport. Luckily, these tips can save you some money in golf. Read on!
Golf Balls

Balls, there I said it, let’s talk about balls, they can be really expensive so look for ones that may be cheaper than the top of the range ones. A lot of manufacturers will produce balls with company logos or for a particular event and they can have a surplus which they need to off-load at a reduced cost, so look out for excess stock clearances, they’re the same quality as the other balls but just have and different logo or name on them. You can do an internet search for ‘excess golf stock’ or ‘wholesale golf stock’ to get you started in the right direction. Some of our local places include Play it Again Sports and Replay Golf Supplies. Source: Fatwallet

Golf Practice

Golf course coupon books are best for groups of three or four players buying together who will actually use the “four for two” or “four for three” rounds. Again, these too can be quite restrictive so check the listings before you buy.

Taking golf lessons with a pro can be cheaper than green fees, will improve your skills and increase your enjoyment of the game. Golf pros can suggest proper clubs and equipment for your level/physique potentially saving you more in the long run.

Getting some swings in at a driving range is always a good way to improve your game, and relieve stress. Who doesn’t like whacking the heck out of a bucket of golf balls! Be careful to not overdo it, stretch before and after, and know your limit: two buckets MIGHT be too many swings! There are some great ranges around us, like Birdies & Buckets, Sunshine Woods, and Fraserview, so check them out! Source: Vacay.ca

 Golf Clubs

Whether you buy them in sets or individually, golf clubs can feature some pretty incredible price tags. Depending on what you’re looking for, though, you can usually save a lot of money by keeping the following tips in mind:

  • Buy used clubs: There are more used golf clubs out there than there are new clubs, so go out there and explore your options.
  • Buy demo clubs: Demo clubs are available in almost every pro shop for golfers to try out the latest and greatest golf clubs before purchasing them.
  • Don’t rent clubs: Unless your course provides free rentals, they’re probably getting away with making a lot of profit on a relatively cheap investment. Source: Golf.isport
