Playing Golf Without A Membership

(This is a guest post by Debra Miller)

Golfers use approximately $800 million in golf balls every year. We all know how expensive the game of golf can be, let alone a golf membership at an exclusive country club. However, there is a way to play at famous private courses without mortgaging your house or calling in a favor of a friend who knows someone who belongs there.

Every year, thousands of non-profits across the country conduct golf outing fundraisers, typically on a Monday, which is a slow day for most clubs. It’s an opportunity that provides exclusive access for golfers at just a fraction of what a club membership costs.

I recently coordinated the local Liberty Mutual Invitational at TPC (Tournament Player’s Club) Jasna Polana in Princeton, New Jersey. Amateur golfers from all over were more than willing to pay the $300 entry fee to play the course designed by the legendary Gary Player to help support the Hunter’s Hope Foundation. Over $48,000 in prizes and giveaways were donated to the outing by Liberty Mutual Insurance, TaylorMade adidas, Polaroid, Sports Vision Eyewear and Golf Digest.

This tournament was unique in that it also provided an opportunity for the local first place team to compete in the National Finals at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina – a 72-hole cumulative scramble tournament played on three Tour quality courses. Now, who wouldn’t feel like a professional golfer after playing there?

With 72 Invitational tournaments being held throughout the country, you have plenty of options. You can find one at the Liberty Mutual Invitational website.

The opportunity to play a TPC course with your friends also makes for great bragging rights and the networking opportunities can be endless. After all, we know how key building relationships can be, especially in the sports industry. The best part is that it’s all part of a good cause.

So if you think of your golf game is up to par, perhaps you can consider testing your skills for a shot at the finals. If you have a good day, you may just find yourself ending up at Pinehurst Resort.
