How much are your monthly CC fees?
Yeah I know. No matter how much you love the game, CC fees really can't be justified. It is an expensive hobby (that I absolutely love btw!) and my son has been bitten by the golf bug as well, but my monthly golf nut is pretty pricey. $750 a month (not including cart fees), but we have two very, very nice courses that are completely different from one another. During the summer, I might play 3 or 4 times per week (9 or 18 hoses). During the winter...not so much. Socially, I don't get a real benefit from hanging out with the other members because the place can be kind of a ghost town, but the cool thing about that is that I can basically walk on and play whenever me or my son wants too. Clubhouse is nice, but for the most part, it is pretty boring. The events they host are nothing I would really want to do on a friday night or a holiday because again...they are pretty boring. We have the usual combo of rich folks, pro athletes, retirees, and working folks like me but I like to play a lot by myself, invite friends to join me who aren't members, or just play with my son. Plus, the courses are less than 5 minutes from the crib which is a real benefit. Am I nuts to pay this kind of monthly fee? What do you all pay per month and what is your mental justification?
