I love playing golf on private golf courses, like my favorite – The Jupiter Hills Club. The course is always in great shape, the players are sparse, and the facilities are usually top notch. The problem is, I would have to sell my house and live in my car to afford a membership. Most private establishments require you to be invited to join, and then demand a hefty five-figure initiation fee. The yearly dues and restaurant charges add up fast, as do all the other little amounts that go along with being a member at a private club. After all, you can’t show up at a posh country club in ratty old cargo shorts and dirty shoes. So, you’ll have to upgrade your wardrobe, shell out some good tips for the staff, entertain guests in the restaurant and at the member-guest, and if you would like to play elsewhere for a change, you still have to pay guest fees.
Needless to say, the vast majority of golfers in the country can’t afford to play at private golf clubs. Or can they? Boxgroove.com is about to change the way we look at private golf courses. Their goal is to connect serious golfers seeking diverse golf experiences with private courses using an inventive, reliable online network. Members of the Boxgroove.com network can play private golf courses all around the country without being a member of a club with reciprocal privileges, or having to know a member to get a tee time. Once you join Boxgroove.com, you simply browse their network of private golf clubs, make a tee time, and go play!
Yeah, I know what you are thinking – “What’s the catch? It probably costs $1000 to join…” Well, Standard memberships at Boxgroove.com are FREE. That’s right, it costs you nothing to join. For occasional users or players in emerging markets, the free membership is ideal. Simply sign up and select from the available tee times at the course of your choice! Boxgroove also offers a Premium membership for only $49 per year. That’s about the price of one greens fee and lunch at the local cow-pasture municipal course. For your $49 investment, you get to purchase and request preferred tee times at all of the Boxgroove network’s private courses. The $19.95 booking surcharge that Standard members pay when booking tee times is waived for Premium members, so simply playing three rounds per year more than pays for your Premium membership.
The network of private golf courses at Boxgroove.com is growing fast, and more courses are joining the Boxgroove network every day. What better way to cap off a great business trip or vacation with a round of golf at a private club in the city you are traveling in! All you have to do is log in and book a tee time. Another nice feature of having an online network like this one is that you can meet people and share your experiences. Like many other social networks, you can create a public profile that other members can see, and you can add friends and arrange a game with other members any time. It’s all part of being a member.
I’ve joined Boxgroove.com and several of my friends have also. Why not join us? It’s free! As an affiliate, I can also offer readers of Intothegrain.com 10% off on a Premium membership.
