10 Top-Flight Golf Course Outings With Dad That Won't Break the Bank (Slideshow)

Slide 1 of 10
Bethpage State Park, New York

Considering the fact that the historic Bethpage State Parks’ Black Course on Long Island was the site of the U.S. Open in 2002 and 2009, and will serve as the host of The Barclays 2016 (and 2021 and 2027 too!), you should expect to pay a bit more money — and $130 (without a cart) for a weekday and $150 for a weekend is still perfectly reasonable. However, it’s the discounts that really make this an affordable outing. Unlike the few dollars that usually separate the rates of in-state and out-of-state residents, the fees are cut in half here for New Yorkers. That means only $65 to $75 (weekday and weekend, respectively) can get you on the greens of one of the best courses in the state and country — if you happen to be a resident of the Empire State.
