They did supposedly redo a bunch of the course and Jim H.’s review was pretty great so maybe it’s somewhat worth it?

$15 a sleeve at a peninsula course is a bargain.

See, here are examples of people getting back to normal life, taking advantage of a situation. Does everyone really think that when the courses do open you are going to get the same rates as before? Not only golf will cost more, food in their restaurant will also, and I bet not all courses will re open, I.E. the ones that were really in financial dire, which means less courses and higher prices. These courses are loosing alot of money along with all the other businesses.

Think about it GK's. Price gouging has always been part of the American way. Its just another way of making a Mega Profit on the general public but in regards to Golf Courses (since the subject is about golf) they have one price during the week and a higher price during the Weekends and Holidays. I know its been referred to as "Supply and Demand" and so everything that has gone up during this "Pandemic" due to gouging, it too is "Supply and Demand". You don't think its price gouging when Golf Courses do it too ?

That's called trying to make a profit not "price gouging"!!?
This is a capitalist system right?
The game with-in the game is to get the maximum for the minimum most times in my golf economy. (IE get the best rate for the time and place)
$15 a sleeve is a bargain on the Monterey peninsula but at Walmart not so much.
How come they don't discount Pebble Beach for twilight times? Still full list price in February at 3pm with barley two hours of daylight.

I think I played it as East Lake years back. Isn't this a higher end quality course for this area? Still $30 I'd think twice for 9 if it was as many as you could play return cart at darkness and the course was wide open it maybe a good deal.

Honestly our State Government wants all golf courses closed at this time and those that are open could be closed tomorrow.

The truth is many golf courses need all the money they can get at this time to even be able to reopen their doors should this shut down continue for while. You read and hear about reopening dates but the fact is there are no set dates for golf courses to reopen. There are massive fixed expenses a golf course must endure while closed + unexpected expenses immediately upon reopening and some will only be able to hang on for so long.

Trust me they are not price gouging, they are just trying to survive.

And will the golf courses realize that a lot of their customers won’t have the money to spend like they use too? It goes both ways. I’ll just pay for golf and not spend any $$$ in the restaurant, bring your own.
