Happy Father’s Day. Summer is officially here and it is Father’s Day weekend. This means many of you may be heading to the Golf Course to enjoy the great weather on this Father’s Day. But before you go, you should know what discounts may be available to you.
Where and When:
While the majority of golf course discounts will be found at your local public courses, you should not overlook the private courses, as many will extend a discount to seniors as well. Golf courses like to attract golfers during their slower periods and will typically provide senior discounts during their slow times, so you should be prepared to play in the mornings or late afternoons during the week or during off-season times if you want to claim your discount.
The age requirements for senior golf discounts will vary from facility to facility. There are discounts available for those of us that are 50 or 55 years of age, but many discounts may not begin until you are 60 or 62. Public courses tend to have the higher age requirements but may not require that you produce age identification. So if you know to ask for the discount, they mat extend it to you.
Like the age requirements, the amount of the discount can be different at every course. Discounts can range anywhere from 10% off or a couple of dollars from the green fees to more than 50% off or more than $50 dollars.
Golf discounts don't just end with the green fees. Senior discounts can also be found on golf cart rentals and at driving ranges. Some facilities will even offer discounts on lessons or golf camps, and pro shops may extend the course senior discount to clothes and equipment in the shop.
Locating Discount Information:
The majority of golf courses now have their own web sites and you can usually find the senior discounts located under the green fees section of the web site. SeniorDiscounts has over a thousand golf courses listed on our web site, but with fees and the amount of the discount changing each year, it is a good idea to confirm the discount before going to play your next round.
Here are Some Examples:
Highland Park Golf Course
Golfers 60 and older save up to 30% off green fees Monday-Thursday and Friday before 10am. Discounts are also available on the courses annual pass.
