Michigan Course Is One Of The Most Affordable Golf Destinations
We are officially nine days into National Golf Month. To celebrate this and inspire you to hit the links, Home To Go published a report that details the most affordable golf destinations and a Michigan course made the list.
“The ranking explores the affordability of green fees, golf carts, club rentals and nearby accommodations, so you can stay on the green and out of the debt bunker,” they explain. To compile this information Home To Go analyzed these four categories and then compiled a list of the 40 most affordable rounds.
Golf has many unique components that separate it from many other activities. Hitting the links can be a casual day out among friends, or a highly competitive tournament. Either way, it certainly takes practice and skill to master. Furthermore, there are traditions to the game that are respected widely across the globe. In addition to proper golf attire and etiquette, golfers are expected to follow each course’s guidelines. Many of these are standard, but different course layouts and features then factor into the cost to play.
In Michigan, the course is built upon 240 acres that were once apple and cherry orchards. It’s about four hours from Detroit but located along the beautiful coastline of Lake Michigan.
Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club – Bluffs Course. Arcadia, MI
Ranking #15 in the list of 40 most affordable golf course destinations, Arcadia Bluffs offers two different experiences. The South Course is a challenging layout that pays tribute to traditional elements of golf as it was played in its earliest days. It contains two nine-hole loops.
The Bluffs Course is what Home To Go recognized as one of the most affordable. It is also 18 holes but consists of wide open fairways. The report shows local accommodations will run you about $40. Though the $240 green fee is on the pricier end, that does include a golf cart. If you want to rent clubs, expect to pay an additional $75.
Golf excursions can get quite expensive. So, if you are understandably budgeting your next golf trip, this affordable Michigan course is worth considering.
