In a regular monthly update interview with Indago Creek’s head professional, A.J. Sawyer, we learned about a great deal for 2013 World Am Practice Rounds with discounts through the East Coast Golf Management, Platinum Card. We felt this was something we need to highlight for those coming down for this month’s 30th World Am event.

The Platinum Card costs $55.00 and includes a free round, sleeve of balls, and deep discounts at all East Coast Golf’s participating courses….including a play-four-rounds-get-the-fifth-free feature. You can see all the card’s participating courses here.

So, let’s do some math using Indago Creek’s rates….which hosts World Am rounds on 3 of the 4 days of play. Let’s assume a player plays 6 practice rounds leading up to the event and a normal cost of $45 per round. 6 rounds @$45.00 =$270. With the Platinum Card those rounds would be $20.00 (including a sleeve of balls per round) or $80. I know your thinking my math is wrong since 6 x $20 = $120. But, remember you get a free round immediately(with the card purchase) and get the 5th free after paying for 4. So, there are 2 free rounds in this scenario. Add the cost of the card at $55 and the total cost would be $135 compared to $270….and you still own the card that can be used for many other rounds at the participating courses along with other card membership benefits.

East Cost Golf Management is growing and so are the numbers of courses participating in their card membership. In a time when the cost of golf is a factor for all who would like to play more, programs like this one are very valuable to the game. We salute the folks at East Coast for doing their part to take some of the sting out of golf. You may be surprised at some of the participating courses. Check out this growing list:
