Average Costs for U.S. Public Golf

The average playing fee for an 18-hole round of golf at a U.S. public golf course was $43 in 2023, an increase of about 18% since 2019. This cost reflects peak-season weekend fees which have been adjusted to account for weekday rates, seasonal passes, junior and senior discounts, walking versus riding in a cart, and time of day. Average playing fees at municipal courses are roughly 22% lower than those at daily fee courses (including resorts). When excluding resort courses, average municipal pricing is still 8% less than the average at daily fee public courses.
