We dedicate today to saving dollars, and Deerfield Golf Club has come up with a new way to let you keep a few more in your pocket: its new Mobile Club. Specials and alerts will be sent straight to your phone, and you’ll get a free basket of range balls for signing up. You can do that by texting DEERFIELD to GOLFER (465337), or online here: http://www.cgtxt.com/golfer/join.asp?course=2534
Inniscrone is still holding to winter rates. That means $25 green fee and cart Monday through Friday and $35 on weekends. They also offer 9-holes for of ½ the going 18-hole rate plus $5.
White Oaks Country Club has some March Madness Specials going this month. They include discount rates for golf, and some food specials to keep you satisfied if you’d like to stay and watch the games. Info at www.whiteoaksgolf.com.
Each week I’ll try to pass along a few more local deals. I continue to be impressed with the specials you find at www.GolfNow.com (that’s if you can be flexible with your tee times), and the Victory Golf Pass is always a good call if you don’t play most of your golf at one club.
And when it comes to the rest of your golf gear and apparel, I have to put in a plug for the new website I have created at www.DealTrackerGolf.com. I do the leg work and uncover the best deals on clubs, shoes, balls and apparel…so you can concentrate on your game. Check it out and if you find it worthwhile, please bookmark that site and tell your friends (and your friend’s friends…).
Coming up later this week: Some early season practice tips.
Ed Abrams anchors mornings on KYW Newsradio, and you can hear his Golf Reports there on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. He has also created a new website at www.DealTrackerGolf.com, a resource for golfers seeking the best bargains on dlubs, apparel and everything golf.
