Course conditions and discounts
With all this talk about course conditions and getting taken for a ride, why don’t courses offer discounts when they stuff a bunch of holes in their greens, making putting virtually impossible?
I played a round today where it looked like my ball was pogo-sticking through an Iraqi mine field on the greens. My greens fees: the same as if I were putting on the good stuff. I’m not going back for at least two weeks, and judging by the wide open course I played on, seems the rest of the town is going elsewhere too.
I’m not a business guy. My idea of bargaining is giving a street merchant 50 bucks and telling him to give me whatever he thinks is “fair". But how about this: offer incentives for players to tough it out on greens by offering a free cart, complimentary beverage, or a come-back-next-time and get 20% off?
