“There’s so many restrictions on how to build a golf club head … they’re running out of specification adjustments they can make,” Stasch says. “Now this coming year will be the year of the sound.”
Many golf courses across the country raise rates a few dollars each year and Dave Marrandette, author of the new book “Off the Beaten Cart Path,” says its time to stop emptying our wallets to play golf.
“Every time a guy goes out to play golf it gets more expensive and stifles the growth of the game,” Marrandette says. “It’s hard to get new golfers into the game when they know they have to make an investment of at least $50-70. It’s going to destroy the game.”
Summer golf camps have become popular over the last few years. Golf blogger Ron Mon ran a golf camp over the summer and has some thoughts and suggestions.
“If you have to be at camp in the summer because your parents are making you go, make sure it’s a camp you like. Don’t just go to golf camp because it’s what your parents say you should do,” Ron Mon says.
