Golf Costs Negril Hills
Ok, we are making our 6th trip in a 5 days, along with 2 other couples. I played golf alone on my first trip in 2009, and now 2 of the others want to play, so I am not sure of a few things, even after reading the golf costs.
If anyone can answer or confirm my observations I would appreciate it.
Golf Cart $35, so if 2 of us use it, that is the total cost the way I read it. Is this correct?
Since there will be 3, I understand the caddie is for the cart and is $14 so that is $7 per person, Correct?
One person will have to pay $14 by themselves. Guess we will draw straws.
Tipping the Caddy, I tipped $20 by myself and thought that was very generous for 18 holes. Would this still be an appropriate tip for 2 of us, or would we each tip that amount or like amount? What does other people do?
Golf clubs, as I recall they were not much, but they were usable. It says they are $18. I paid higher, but I got a choice of prices. It also says they have left handed, which one of my group is left handed. Anyone out there able to affirm this?
What we talked about doing, since there are 3 of us, was to add the total cost to play for all of us and divide by 3. That way we are all sharing in the expense of having an odd player. Well we are all odd I guess.
We are not taking our clubs for 1 round, only tees, balls, ball marks and divot repair tools. So if I am adding up the projected costs correctly, the total should come to about $148 for 3, or about $50 each. Sound right?

Sadly now there are only one other couple going, so the costs are halved.

$50. a piece sounds about right. Depending on how your caddie is you could tip more or less. I had one caddie that took his job seriously and really knew the course and after watching me hit a half dozen balls on the range with various clubs would just hand me a club, at first I doubted him, but after the first couple holes realized he was smarter than me. Needless to say he got a double tip and two sleeves of Pro-Vs. Remember to bring Golf shoes and if inclined a glove. Hope this helps
