GOLF’S MOST EXPENSIVE GREEN FEE
The course with the most expensive green fee in golf has alternated between Shadow Creek and Pebble Beach. Shadow Creek has been holding onto the title ever since it increased its rates to US$600 in 2019. Henceforth, the high-roller MGM course in Las Vegas, will increase its green fees to US$1,000 during its peak season (March to May; plus October and November) and US$750 during off-peak. Pebble Beach’s green fees, which are currently $575, pale in comparison. Shadow Creek had previously been open only for the richest of Vegas’ rich clients until the public got to see it on TV hosting a number of events. Besides an LPGA event in May, it hosted the relocated CJ Cup in Oct last year. And of course, Shadow Creek hosted the first edition of “The Match” between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in 2018.
