Money Savings Tips
Here are two money savings ideas.
1. Don’t hang up your clubs when fall is in the air. This is a beautiful time to be playing golf, especially now that many of the courses have drastically reduced their rates. Many locations in Michigan offer 18 holes of golf with a power cart for around $25 or less. They throw in the sunshine, 70º temperatures, and beautiful fall foliage for free!
Look for similar good rates at public courses near you.
2. Did you want those new clubs, or a wedge, or a driver, but cannot pay the high price? Right now, in September, some of the best top brand name equipment has been significantly reduced.
Big name drivers that were over $300 are now on sale for less than $200. Are they worth this much? That is for each of us to decide.
I suggest that if you decide that now is the time to purchase a set of clubs, or a driver, or another wood or hybrid, at a season-ending price, you purchase from a location where there is a launch monitor. There you can hit several models or clubs and see what the results are for those particular clubs or club. Is the shaft correct for you? Is the length correct? Is loft of a driver suitable for your swing speed, that is, are you getting a good launch angle that provides maximum carry distance?
You won’t realize and true savings if you buy a club at a discount price and then leave it in the garage because it does not perform the way you expected.
Hit them straight!
