We’ve played through wet spring weekends and sunny summer days. But for unbeatable beauty and crisp, cool air, fall is the best season for golf of all.
It’s also a season filled with sensational deals, as clubs make up for our shorter days with lower prices. Here’s a look at some of the best can’t-miss deals in the Midwest:
If you’ve been waiting for the right time to play this classic course (it was built in 1926), there’s no time like the present. On Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, Mission Hills hosts the “Challenge of the Chambers and Companies, Awards and Taste Reception and Business Expo,” giving you the chance to play the club for free (plus a $30 cart fee), and network with some of the area’s elite. The best part is, all proceeds benefit the First Tee of Greater Chicago.
The shotgun start is 11:30 a.m. at the club, with awards reception and business expo planned for the following festivities. Sign up here.
Can’t make the event? Fall rates are as low as $29.
Time’s running out to play one of the Midwest’s most magical courses this season, and it’s the perfect time to enjoy Erin Hills’ Stay and Play package. From now until the course closes on October 13, you can play one round at the regular rate, spend the night at Erin Hills, and enjoy a complimentary round the next day.
