    If a course will let me walk I regularly walk. Pretty much every single clubcorp owned course knows to charge me the fee even when walking. If I'm playing 36 I don't usually get charged on the second round though.

    The affiliate courses are the places where they don't always charge the cart fee when walking. I'd guess it's probably because the kid working the counter doesn't know the rules.

    I don't remember how or where I saw it, but I knew before I joined that Firestone South wasn't included. That said, I just looked around and it's not really apparent that the course isn't included.

    Also, how does the fee structure work when traveling to other courses? Is the "cart fee" mandatory or could a person choose to walk and get a straight comp fee? I haven't had chance to use the travel portion of my membership yet.

    I often walk. Almost every clubcorp course has charged me the fee when walking. TPC Michigan is the only one that didn't (I also figure it's cause the girl at the counter didn't know she was supposed to).
    If playing 36 I don't usually get charged on the second round.

    The affiliate clubs are the places where they aren't consistent with charging me if I'm walking. I'd guess it's because the kid in the shop doesn't know they are supposed to.

    For Boston, Ipswich or The Ridge Club?

    Ended up at The Ridge Club. It was a good experience. The first 6 holes are super interesting and unique then it kind of blends into your regular golf course. Pictures from the first few holes including the par-5 3rd hole with the cool tree

    Playing the Traditions Club at A&M today. You can get on there during football season when the Aggies don't have a home game. We'll be playing when A&M-Clemson is on TV, so I suspect we'll have the course to ourselves.

    This year, the DMN rates the course #40 in Texas. Last year, they were ranked Top 30. I have played it once, and loved it. If you hit it sideways, you can get into trouble with lots of lateral and regular water hazards. But the fairways are extremely wide.

    I'll report back on the condition.

    Won’t have it yourself completely, a buddy and me will be out there as well!

    Don't put anything here, it will likely be taken down.

    Saw a couple of groups out there, but not many. We played in 3 hours.

    Great golf course. GM Bill Slade told me they'd had a bunch of 100 degree days this summer. I saw a couple of brown patches on the course, but none on the greens. Overall condition was excellent IMO.

    I live about an hour away and coach football. It’s been one of the hottest starts to football that I can remember. Thought the course was in great shape considering the heat and lack of rain lately. It’s usually in great shape in the spring.

    Apologies if this has been covered previously, but there's a lot of info in this thread.
    Heading down to Hilton Head in late October, and this will be my first time using the Play Away membership. The site says complimentary golf for Country Club of Hilton Head, Indigo Run, and Golden Bear. Anyone know what the cart/guest fees are for them? And am I reading correct that complimentary dining benefits are also included at those clubs, or do I have that wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    for quicker and more accurate info, I would call club corp directly. 800.433.5079

    Food is generally complimentary at any of the golf clubs. Only the city clubs

    Does anyone know the "preferred green rate" on any of the RTJ trail golf courses? Looking to make a trip to Birmingham.

    Member at Greenbrier. It's Rees Jones in a housing development...that should say something. It's not bad. Maintained well. I pay membership dues, so I guess I think it's good enough to play 50 or so times a year...

    My 12-year-old daughter and I played Greenbrier last Sunday. Very much a Rees Jones course in a housing development. That said, the staff was really nice, the course was in very nice shape (great greens; I only had 26 putts), and we really appreciated the five sets of tees. It was nice that she had a set of tees to play from rather than having me just start her somewhere in the fairway. I'll definitely play there again.

    A buddy of mine just let me know he's going to the OBX for Thanksgiving, so I'll probably make the drive down and play Currituck with him. This thing is definitely worthwhile.

    Next time you're down, if you want a game, just send me a message and I'll see what I can do.

    Played Knollwood (Granger, IN) as a part of a two-day trip which included Warren Golf Course (Notre Dame). Decent track and a sleeper in respect of what you see from the clubhouse. The terrain sneaks up on you, in a good way.

    I would definitely consider this course to be a tier 2 or 3 (5 as I understand it would be Firestone). Staff was friendly and we basically had the course to ourselves. They do have 2 18’s, and we played the West course.
