First, there is no right or wrong answer here. With that out of the way, here are some things to consider:
- Private courses cost more
- Private courses are only available on Mondays
- Your golfers might be enjoy going to a private course they couldn’t otherwise play.
In a nutshell, those are the three most important variables you need to consider. You should call a few of each…and get some pricing.
Once you have some data to compare one with the other, perhaps a visit to each is in order. Maybe even one year you try a public course, the next year go to private venue. The results…in terms of golfers that come and your net profit after each will speak for itself.
