Rip Off Throw-In Courses
Notice how many golf architects are designing two to three courses on one mammoth site/housing development these days? Inevitably, at least one of these courses seems to suffer and come out as little more than a throw in. It’s like, oh well, maybe the public won’t notice.
Linking a good course with a bad one, in package deals and promotion, is just another way to stick it to the average golfer. More than ever, it’s buyer beware. No matter how name brand the designer is, it sometimes seems to be all about squeezing out a few extra bucks.
This is especially prevelant in golf meccas like Myrtle Beach and Vegas where a number of courses are crammed into a limited area. With so many courses around, it is easier to slip an unworthy sister/companion course by.
I’ll have a story coming up on this soon.
