Red Bridge Golf & Country Club


"Great course"

4/15/24: Review by Steve

Red Bridge is looking good right now. We played after a morning tournament and you would never know it, course is in good condition. Greens are running super fast.

Carolina Trail – Christmas in July sale
    • #3505

      This gave me a laugh today. Such bogus advertising but I guess it’s typical for all courses doing pre-packaged rounds:

      “$129: For a limited time exclusively from the Carolina Trail, purchase the Gift of Golf in July. Offer good for 1 ROUND OF GOLF at each *Carolina Trail golf course including cart fee. Valid ANYTIME Monday-Friday. Valid AFTER 11AM on Saturday-Sunday. Not valid when holiday rates in effect. Rounds expire October 31, 2012. Must purchase online. Total value at $450.”

      It’s that last line — total value for 7 rounds of golf = $450??? That’s $64 and change per round. The current rack rates for Weekend mornings at the Divide are $57 and the fine print even says only after 11am on weekends -! – so how much will you use it under the weekend rack rate? Fridays it’s $47 — again if you play in the morning. On top of that, really, if you are going to play a Carolina Trail, are you ever paying rack rate? You better be getting a Clickit coupon — which right now for the Divide is $37 for a Friday round, $52 on the weekend. Birkdale and Skybrook are higher, of course, but this deal is only for 1 round at each course. Even if you assume you will play on the weekend (after 11) at each course, I don’t see how you get to a $450 total. And if you factor in when you will actually play and what the rate will be then, I don’t see how you get to more than $300 total value if you use all 7 rounds.

      For $130, I’d rather play 2 rounds at a course that is worth it than 7 at at Carolina Trail course. That pretty much tells you what I think of the Carolina Trail. They are obviously hurting pretty bad.
