At its September meeting, the Links Management Committee (LMC) set the green fees for all six courses on the Links for next season. The new fees will come into operation on 1 April 2002.
A single round on the Old Course in the high season (1st April to 31st October 2002) will be £90 (from £85). The adult green fee on the New Course will be £45 (from £42) and £22 for under 16s (from £21). Adults on the Jubilee Course will pay £40 (from £37) while for under 16s it will be £20 (from £18). The Eden Course green fee will be £30 (from £28) for adults and £15 for under 16s (from £14). The Strathtyrum Course adult fee will be £20 (from £18) and under 16s, £10 (from £9). The green fee for the Balgove Course will remain at 2001 levels at £10 for adults and £3 for under 16s.
“The changes in green fees reflect the excellent condition of the courses, improvements in facilities and better levels of service at the Links, as we continue the drive to raise standards higher to meet golfers’ expectations,” said Alistair Nicoll, chairman of the LMC.
High season period tickets giving unlimited access to all courses except the Old will rise to £100 (from £95) for an adult for three days and to £205 (from £190) for seven days. “These tickets represent exceptional value for money as golfers can easily generate double the value,” said Mr Nicoll.
The under 16s prices will be £50 (from £47) for three days and £100 (from £95) for seven days. The high season period tickets for the Balgove Course only will stay the same for the second year in succession ie £18 (adult) and £5 (under 16s) for three days and £36 (adult) and £10 (under16s) for seven days.
