No one likes to pay full price, especially when it comes to a sport he loves.

Now golfers can take advantage of paying less than full green fees at hundreds of area public and daily-fee golf courses by purchasing a golf pass that entitles them to free rounds and discounted green fees.

Many of the discounts are limited to weekdays and off-peak weekend hours when a course has diminished play, but used to their maximum potential golf passes can save you hundreds, even thousands in green fees.

If you have a little flexibility in your golf schedule and can play during off-peak hours, then a golf pass is a sensible - and affordable - addition to your golf game.
