    Following on from ‘how much should a visitor pay’ thread .

    What’s the most you’ve paid or willing to pay for a round of golf?

    Paid £300 all in to play Sawgrass . If I ever find myself on the west coast of the states I’d love to play Pebble Beach which I think is near the £400 mark . Bucket list courses and wouldn’t be making a habit of it . In Britain I don’t think I could justify anything over £100 .

    Turnberry and Sunningdale are my biggest espenses so far. I think a couple of £100’s would be my limit course dependant atm.
    My own H4H. Challenge. Get to 16 or pop £20in the pot.

    You see Sawgrass, Pebble Beach etc I’d pay handsomely for. Top UK links courses not so much.

    So some people would pay fortunes for US courses but not for UK courses ? May I ask why ?

    Most I have paid I guess is for Birkdale and I would be happy paying whatever is needed to play any top 100 UK course - except the Belfry overpriced and overrated potato field

    £225 to play Wentworth. The family paid a tidy sum for a game with a pro at Gleneagles.
    removed list of clubs as they change too frequently !

    Ive played the Brabazon half a dozen times. Never paid more than £55 for it whatever time of year. Always enjoy it, think it’s very scoreable but punishes quite well too.

    Ive always favoured American style golf over British TBH . Love the whole manicured pristine look of them .

    Peeble Beach ? Links - not the whole manicured look.

    Pebble Beach is probably the exception . But the British weather that comes with Links golf is what puts me off . A stiff Breeze in 30 degree Californian weather I’d imagine to be much more pleasant than 6 degrees and a gale coming from the Atlantic .
