- Americans coming to play Ireland's links see a €120 green fee as good value. They regard our links as the best in the world and to play at many of their ‘big’ courses they can easily fork out $300-$500… or they simply can’t get access due to the ‘private’ nature of so many clubs (Augusta, Cypress Point, Pine Valley); here in Ireland, where these world-class courses are on our doorstep, the attitude of some Irish golfers is that we should be paying – I don’t know – 20 quid.
- Ask Irish golfers to pay €50 for a course that has hosted international events and there will be plenty who moan the price is too high.
- Get down to the €30 mark and you’ll still hear complaints.
