Goldmine for cheap green’s fees in Austin

Golfing can be expensive.

I’m a full-time college student. I feel your pain.

Golf512 is to local golf what other companies like Orbitz, Cheap Tickets and Expedia are to traveling. Golf512 is a free service, that compiles unbooked tee-times from nearly every public course in the Austin area and offers those times to subscribers at a fraction of the cost.

Did I mention this service is free.

Not only will you end up frequently paying half the price everyone else does for the same course, the site will also e-mail you the best deals daily. Once you find a tee-time you like, click on the time and the site will immediately prompt you to insert your credit or debit card information to book the tee-time.

Another luxury of this service is if bad weather shuts down the course on the day of your tee-time, golf512 issues a full refund on your card. I recently encountered this over spring break. I called the local customer support number, gave my last name and tee-time and was issued a full refund the next day.

I have used this service religiously for the last year and have saved hundreds of dollars in the process. Golf512 has even expanded in the state to Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth area golf courses as well.

Pine Forest G.C. in Bastrop, TX, is a beautiful course in the Hill Country and frequently featured on golf512.

Travelling? They also offer discounted tee-times in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Washington D.C.

Part of what makes golfing great is that no two courses are the same. The more courses you play, the more you appreciate the intricacies that each has to offer. With golf512 you can experience a plethora of courses whether you’re in your hometown or not.

And you don’t have to break the bank to do it.
