In the summer, families are filling hotels, so they work to market golfers who decide they want to get a round-or-two in on their trip.
"In the summertime, you really have a lot of family vacations planned, and hotels are full of families," says Eddie Dennis, the head golf pro at Arrowhead Country Club. "And dad might say, 'Hey I want to go play golf', and bring his son along. We see a lot more twosomes, singles and stuff like that. We do see a lot of juniors in the summertime."
"We have some of the best golf courses at some of the best rates," Dennis says. "Even the higher end courses here are still way more affordable than they are in other areas. And with the golf packagers putting these special deals together, it makes it very affordable for people to come down," he adds.
