Where Do You Want to Play Golf?

Pick One Place. It can be anywhere in the world. It has to be a place you have never played golf before.
You may already have a place in mind; there are so many options out there. If you have no idea, try this list of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses You Can PlayWOW! What a list.
We just picked our place; it is Number 2 on the list. Oh My! The cost for a round is between $495 and $530.
It is your turn to pick a place.  Just for a minute, ignore how much you think the trip will cost or how you will ever convince you spouse to let you pursue such a ridiculous adventure. Now make a decision, you can change your mind later. Once you have chosen your place let’s get to work on making this dream a reality. You didn’t think we were just playing a game, did you?
Set a Date. If we are going to make this dream a reality, we have to start making plans today or we will never make any progress toward reaching our goal. Let’s be generous and set a deadline of three years from today. Many of us may be able to move that deadline up to two years, one year or maybe even sooner. But to make it simple, let’s leave the target date at three years from today.
Show Me the Money. Go find an empty jar, a cigar box, an envelope, a traditional piggy bank. Take two dollars (yes $2.00) from your wallet or your change jar, the console in your truck, your desk drawer or your wife’s purse (if you dare) and place the $2.00 in the container of your choice. Repeat this process without fail every day (including weekends) for the next three years. You will have $2,190 in your container on your target date if you stick to this simple easy plan. I think we can figure out how to get $2,190 to cover the cost of the round of golf we chose in step 1 above. Want to move up the date of your adventure, or maybe take someone along with you, just find a way to put more than $2.00 a day in the container or find a way to reduce the cost to travel to your destination.
Stay tuned to Frugal Golf Travel and we will share with you various ways to reduce the cost of your travel to that One Place you have selected. We believe with just a little effort on your part, the date for your adventure will be sooner than you could have ever imagined.  Before you know it, you will be looking at the Top 100 List searching for your next location.
