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). They offer open course play, tournaments and events, pro shops, driving ranges, classes and private lessons all for affordable prices. Visit our Base Guide to find the base near you.
