      I believe Goodwood is north of $300. Although I think they have packages.

        Greystone guest rate info. Regular rate plus cart and plus tax = $210

        I don't recall the rates 2 years ago but they were still up there as expected for clubs at their 'Prestige' level

        REGULAR $160.00
        OPPORTUNITY $125.00
        TWILIGHT/ 9-HOLE $95.00
        JUNIOR $70.00
        CART $26.00
        TWILIGHT CART $17.50

            The answer is none.

            In reality, guests are source of pure income for a course that get written off for tax purposes somewhere down the line by the member.

              Many in the US, UK and Australia- not many in Canada.

                If you want cheaper golf rates and cheaper guest fees, move to Montreal. Look at what some less than spectacular public courses are charging in the GTA.
                Many times you're not paying for the golf course. You're paying for the value of the real estate.

                  Yeah, guest fees overseas are crazy good. If you play with a member some places charge pennies on the dollar vs. what unaccompanied play is like.

                  Even top clubs in the US are much more reasonable than what Canadian clubs charge. I played Essex County Country Club for $140 USD in the middle of the summer on a weekend. Although I did have to take a caddie which added to the cost, but also added to the experience that not many clubs here offer.

                  Bethpage Black $150 USD for non-residents. I know it is not private but I will guarantee you Bethpage is significantly nicer than most Canadian courses.

                    Yeah, but some of the premium public courses in the States are definitely very expensive. Pebble Beach, Whistling Straits, Bandon, Streamsong, Pinehurst 2, Shadow Creek, Spyglass, Sawgrass, etc. Especially when you factor in the exchange rate. I have played a bunch and they take a big bite out of your wallet. Especially when you are not a guest at the course resort.

                      As a member at greystone I would prefer our guest rates to be higher to be honest. I don’t want the course filled up with guests

                      I want to play 3:30 min rounds, a cheaper guest fee would encourage guests.. not really the idea of “private golf”

                      the idea of an expensive guest fee is to keep the course open for the members, this is why the national has bumped up to 400$

                        Playing public top 100 courses is definitely an expensive endeavour. Not much different here - we only have two top 100 publics and their green fees are also on the pricey side of things..

                          As a shareholder of clublink, I’d like them to set the guest fees at a level that maximizes revenue. I’m not sure if that is higher or lower.

                            It is not guests filling up your course, members bring guests which is good for the club, your course gets filled by other Clublink members regularily playing up a level or those playing up two on home course outside tournament day.

                            an expensive guest fee brings revenue to the club, policies on how many times a guest may play protects the tee sheet.

                              I agree and also for clublink it’s people holding tee times only to no show or cancel last minute.

                              Heard Rosedale limits same guest to max 5 rounds a season and they have 3.5 hr rounds
