And having mentioned all this, an inevitable question arises: which are the most exclusive golf clubs in the world? We can find prestigious and often unknown institutions on this selected list to play if you are a member. However, some clubs are open to the general public, but they are expensive nonetheless.

 

It is common to wonder which clubs charge a green fee at a price well above the average in a chat with friends.

 

On this Mulligan+ investigation, we will tell you the most expensive golf courses to play around the world. And you will find that many of the club names are well known, and others are not. But what really matters is to understand that these courses are open to the public and know the days in which you can play on each of them.

This is one of the most famous public courses in the world. Established in 1919, it was designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant. This emblematic field (par 72, 7,075 yards) has hosted the US Open a total of six times and only one PGA Championship (in 1977). It currently hosts the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am of the PGA Tour and the PURE Insurance Championship, part of the Champions Tour. 

 

The resort guest green fee is $ 575, the non-resort guest is $ 575 + $ 45 of the cart fee. In addition, the caddy fee is $ 95 per bag, and the single caddy is $ 145. Keep in mind that a forecaddie of $ 47.50 must be paid for every three players, at least.

This is one of America’s best-kept secrets, designed in the desert by famed architect Tom Fazio. Every hole on this course (par 72, 7,560 yards) is a work of art, breathtaking from start to finish. As Fazio once described: “Every hole at Shadow Creek has characteristics that make a score of par an achievement. 

For instance, on the short and majestic 17th hole, the green has three times the width than the depth, so yardage control becomes paramount. Like the 12th at Augusta, any tee shot allowing the use of a putter for a second shot is an accomplishment.” Take note: the fee for non-members for a round of golf at Shadow Creek is $ 600 per golfer (Mondays through Thursdays) and $ 750 per golfer (Fridays through Sundays), but you must have an invitation from a member.

A world-class link that offers the best services that can be found in a British golf club. Ron Kirby designed and constructed the stunning course, a former designer at Jack Nicklaus’s Golf Design Services.

Former PGA TOUR commissioner, Deane R. Beman, dreamed of this course and took charge of its construction in 1982. The objective was to have a field of hosting The Players Championship and of being the permanent venue for this tournament. The course (par 72, 7,245 yards) was created by Pete Dye, who excelled in every single one of its holes. Especially in the 17th hole, probably the most famous par 3 in the world.
