Meet the Budget

Guest Author - Letta Meinen

In a recent Golf Magazine there was a feature called Price Check on living within a budget but showing the wide swing in things connected to golf. Talk about price swing like checking out a top of the line in motorized golf cart for $52,000. Or to bargain buggies on line like a gas powered Yamaha cart going for $1,000. Now that is what I call a wide swing, but to each his own to match your budget.

I also thought the one about taking a private golf lesson from David Leadbetter who taught many of the top Pro’s for $10,000 for a full day. Then go to the PGA of America who had designated May as Free Lesson Month which means a ten minute clinic from PGA or LPGA instructors. One can always find excellent suggestions in any golf magazine for the price of those magazines.

Talking about tips on how to improve your game with gadgets such as a $990.00 for a large metal circle tilted on its edge you step inside and swing to get that perfect swing pattern. The tip they suggested for a swing aid is two folded towels. Bring these to the practice tee and place them under your arm pits and swing keeping the towels from dropping out. This will help produce that perfect swing for free.

If you want to make your home on a golf course it could start out as $14 million at the Yellowstone Club at the Tom Weiskopf designed course for skiing in the winter and golf in the summer. This compared to $73,000 to a two bedroom home at the Prados Golf and Country Club in Las Vegas. From the ridiculous to the sublime is paying $2,758 for ball markers which are made of white gold studded with diamonds to plastic markers which cost pennies but then pennies work great too.

Playing with a Pro has really made it since the days of Bing Crosby golf events where now playing with a Pro at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am will cost you $16,800. Then consider playing with the not so famous Pro at a National Pro-Am for a total of $1,600 and these guys can hit that ball just as far.

The comparisons for shoes and golf bags are just as outrageous as golf bags can go for as much as $9,850 to a $25.00 bag of nylon called a Sunday carry bag. In shoes these can run up to $450 Ecco classic leather uppers to FootJoy for a downright affordable price of $50.00. As this article shows ever golfer has a budget whether you are a hundred grand a year or a hundred bucks a year you can enjoy this game and play golf anywhere on that budget.
