Three Benefits of Twilight Golf

Blog Post By: Emily Rohdy, PGA Head Professional

We are now almost halfway through the month of July, and the summer as we know it in the great state of Michigan is in full swing.  We have some great months of golf ahead and some deals for you and your friends to take advantage of.

Comfortable Playing Conditions

Some golfers enjoy playing first thing in the morning, others mid-day and lastly those that like to play in the evening.  The benefit of playing in the evening is there is no dew on the grass, so you don’t have to worry about getting your feet wet. Plus, it is cooler than mid-day, when the sun is at its highest position in the sky and radiating down. 

Save with Twilight Rates

Evening/twilight golf is also cheaper at most facilities than during the other times of the day.  This can work out well for those of us that have to watch our disposable income, or who are working an 8-5 type job.  At Bucks Run, our first twilight rates starts at 3:00PM, when the price drops anywhere between $25-$35 off our normal price for 18 holes.  From there, we offer another “super” twilight rate at 4:30PM for $50 for 18 holes, or $30 for 9 holes. 

Nine & Dine: Golf + Dinner Special

Lastly, another great way to enjoy an evening (or a special date night) is to take your significant other out for an evening round of golf and dinner. You can do this with our daily Nine & Dine special! For only $80, the two of you will receive a 9 hole round of golf, plus a $40 dinner voucher for dinner at the Quarry Grill after your round. This offer can be claimed any night of the week, after 4:30PM, and reservations can be made by calling the golf shop at 989-773-6830.  We look forward to seeing you out at the club soon!
