Heading on a golf trip in a couple weeks and renting clubs. I emailed the club to book tee times and they said that "club rental will be $25 per 18 holes". Is this ridiculous? The way I see it, club rental should be for the entire day you are at the course, not for any specified duration of time. What's next- extra cost to bring the rental clubs to warm up on the range before the round? Is this not ridiculous?

I would consider that a very good deal honestly, Ii know most clubs in my area charge $50-75 per round. $25 is a great deal, even if you have to pay it twice.

From a golf course point of view. I think that is an excessive money grab. We would rent them for $30 and tell you to enjoy the 36 holes, and thank you for choosing our course.

 

I can only assume this is resort you're going to, where unfortunately they probably realize you have no alternative.

 

Doesn't make it right in my mind. As for demand, most clubs including ours have multiple rental sets and it's very rare we use them all in a day. Again if it's a resort i understand it could be a different demand.

This is what I am saying. It's not like the clubs will be getting used a second time during a single day. This is a regular golf course in Johannesburg on a Wednesday; it's not like there are going to be a bunch of people clamoring for rental clubs. Either way, I'm still playing 36 at a minimum.

$25 isn't much. I think I spent $40 (all great clubs) once but that was my first and last time renting clubs. If I were you I would ask to make a deal and explain that you're on military deployment, never hurts to ask.

 

my brother once forgot his clubs at our local course and he rented a "GRAB BAG" of clubs which were clubs ppl let behind and/or misc clubs that the club house owned... probably 8 different name brand clubs. It was hilarious and actually made his terrible morning into a fun day.

JuJust got back from playing in the Bay and also looked into renting clubs. I ended up using ClubHub. They ship TaylorMade M2 clubs to your hotel or golf course and then they pick them up. No hassle at all. I think it was $69 for the first day and $20 for the following days.

 

Having said that, depending on the clubs the give you, $25 for renting at the course is a good price. I’ve seen courses charge $50 and above for a round.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
