    How much do you pay for a monitor session?

    We booked to play at a local course yesterday, but just as we got there some very heavy fog came down and it was too dangerous to play.

    I knew the place had a monitor so asked if it was available. Was told it was, and it would be £40 for an hour. £40!

    Said no thanks and drove along to a nearby course where we got on their GC2 for a tenner. Was supposed to be for an hour, but no one was booked for later so they let us stay on for the best part of 2 hours before they closed up.

    This was the first time we had hired a monitor, enjoyed it but Celtic Manor was probably not the best choice as I was never out the sand and my mate was never out the water

    Anyway, whats the going rate for a monitor session? 40 quid struck me as frankly ridiculous.

    Where did you go that was £10? That seems good value and fun to me.

    Depends on the Monitor and what it’s being used for,

    4 Mates playing Celtic Manor, £10.00 each - not bad
    Going on your own - £40.00 expensive.

    Whickham have been doing reduced rates on their simulator.

    £40 an hour is never good value tho as the more people go the more time you need on sim

    3 of us 2 hours 30 to play 18 at sawgrass

    Whitley Bay. Supposed to be £10 for members and £20 for non-members, but the bloke in the shop said just call it a tenner which was decent of him.

    They have got a nice little set up.

    Depends on the Club, some charge per person, some by the hour.

    Ours is being built as we speak and I’ve done extensive research on them up here in the NE, there’s no 1 way fits all answer.

    Max cost per hour should be £20, regardless of numbers. You can make more on food and drinks

    There’s no “should be” about it, it’s upto the Clubs what they wish to charge, there is also the variable in what sort of simulator they have fitted.
    Would you expect to pay the same hire charge for a Porsche as you would a Corsa?
    Sadly, more expensive/exclusive clubs tend to charge more.
