Golf is a great way to stay fit, relieve stress and enjoy time outdoors. But between lessons for new golfers, greens fees and equipment, golf can be a costly pastime. 

Luckily, there are military discounts available to help. Whether you’re a golfer yourself or you prefer to be a spectator, there are many ways to enjoy the sport using military discounts.

Military Golf Courses

Many military installations throughout the world have their own golf courses through Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR).
