Anyone who plays golf, knows that it's a game of ups and downs. One day you're hitting great, the next day you feel like you're blowing every shot. One day the cup is like a magnet to your ball, the next it seems to squirm away as your ball approaches. Why do we keep playing? Guess it's because, in spite of all the frustrations, you're never bored! Do you feel the same? Share your favorite courses or golf moments with us.

Golf Does Not Have to Bankrupt You!

Now that I've reached the age of 60, I guess I'm now considered a senior. (at least AARP thinks so!). Like many people I love golf! I love to play golf, to watch golf and to talk golf! I try to play four or five times a week until snow or early darkness or closed courses shut me down. Since I play so often, I have to play on the cheap. I can’t afford not to. I am fortunate to live close to a golf course that is reasonably priced, but when I travel I find it difficult to locate courses that charge a price that I can pay without breaking my budget.

Those of us who love to play, but aren’t rich, do not need luxurious clubhouses or perfectly manicured fairways and greens. We are looking for good golf, interesting holes, challenging distances, adequate restrooms and clubs that welcome people of every income level. If we have to play on fairways that are not up to the standards of professional play, that doesn’t bother us. If we have to tee off from well worn tee blocks, we can deal with it! We just want to play!

The purpose of this site is to not only find and share the best prices available for green fees and carts throughout the U.S. and southern Canada, but to allow others of the "over 60" set to share their best senior golf moments.
