Default 2022 Winter Rates

Looking at the 2022 rates and wondering what happened to the Wave pricing. No more evening wave? Talk about raising prices and inflation. If they modernize their tee time systems, it will help make more money for them.

Does anyone know why the Green Fees are $5.00 more at Southern Oaks?

Because they can charge any rate they damn well choose. But I believe it's a surcharge to cover the cost of the lovely background music coming from the turnpike.

They're CAPATALISTS with all caps. What the market will pay until proven otherwise. That's off original topic of 2022 golf rates.

And the cost of that background "music" has gone up since diesel is over $3.50/gal.

Have not checked winter rates yet. SInce last year, almost everything has gone up in price. Owners of the gold courses are bsinesss people and do want to make a profit. We do have choices and if we do not like TV prices, we can go elsewhere.

Went to Harbor Hills day after Thanksgiving and played in PM. 3 of us played and rate was <$100. including the golf cart. We have a non golfer 4th person and they allowed that person to ride for $0.

Course was in better condition than most TV courses.

For the owners they have a captive audience, many of whom do not want to leave the area to play.

There is no change as far as I can tell from the rates during the same months in 2021.

There is never a separate wave price in the winter.

Speaking of Southern Oaks, the extra cost is for the free turnpike music.

So, no other course is next to a major thoroughfare in The Villages?

There is never an afternoon wave price over the winter months. The prices remained the same , however that price use to include tax and now it is plus tax. Every time they add a new championship, they raise their prices usually by 3 or 4 dollars.

my son just had a house built in Lakewood Ranch just outside Sarasota. THe course next to his development charges either $99 or $140 depending on time of day or weekend, TV courses don't look so bad compared to that. I however play the executives.
