In Search of Value
Ask any golfer for their definition of ‘value for money’ and the range of answers will be very broad indeed. There are those who think that a €40 green fee is excessive while others will part company with €250 to enjoy a once-in-a-life-time experience. No doubt, during a round or in the clubhouse, you have heard or yourself uttered the refrain, “I’d never pay over XXX for a green fee,” where XXX could be any amount from €40 to €200.

That’s fair enough. It all comes down to your budget and how much you want to play top courses. You can still play some first class clubs for under €100, and even under €40 – Carne included – but many of the world’s best will be beyond reach. So, ask yourself a simple question: how much would you pay to play Augusta, Valderamma, Pine Valley, St. Andrews… because those are all going to be once-in-a-life-time experiences, aren’t they? And, in Ireland, we are lucky to be blessed with links golf courses that rank.
