    Thanks Cap. There's a general feeling that we live in "Rip Off Britain" where everything is more expensive than elsewhere - this feeling is especially prevalent amongst readers of the Daily Mail and Daily Express! It's good to know that there's at least one thing that is good value here.

    Even my club want £150 for visitors, which is silly money TBH
    Worth every penny IMO

    I was lucky enough that the Mrs AAC bought me a 'significant birthday' trip which included 2 rounds at RCD, I had played it a few years before on a corporate (free !!) trip, but going back the whole thing was just wonderful (my golf aside), getting there early, soaking up the atmosphere, the warm up, the caddy, the course, the clubhouse all in all it can be the trip of a lifetime and its certainly a few days golf I will not forget.

    I wouldn't fancy paying more than £30 for a round for myself, wouldn't go much over £50 regardless. Even though my course's green fee is £40.

    I think fees should be fairly representative of the true cost for the visitor being there, if your course is getting too many then limiting numbers by hiking prices makes sense. I do think a distinction should be made between local infrequent pay and play visitors, vs people genuinely visiting as a "one off" and potential future members.

    I am sure it is worth it and I am sure I will play it at some stage. Just find it very hard to justify that amount of money on a round of golf! It looks absolutely fabulous and I am very jealous of your trip. Watched the Irish open there a few years ago and it is just incredible

    I would suggest that if you are genuinely interested in joining a local club you ask the secretary about a courtesy round to see if you like the club/course.

    I did, had three free rounds at the three of four courses I liked the sound of, and joined the last of the three.

    A few places I looked at have "light" membership options which mean if you aren't able to play enough to join you can still get a better deal. Alot of courses didn't seem to offer this which implies either you're a member or not.
