Ever Hear of 'Twenty-Something' Discounts for Golfers? They Got 'Em in South Florida!

We've all probably heard or seen special discounts for juniors, seniors, women and veterans. Then there are the twilight, seasonal and early bird discounts.

Now, the Town of Davie is cutting green fee breaks for "Twenty-Somethings."
 
It's all part of the special rates the town is offering for this month, celebrating the opening of the town's new golf course, the Davie Golf and Country Club.
 
Technically, the course isn't new, but it's close to it. Formerly known as the Arrowhead Golf Club, the facility has been closed since Dec. 2008 because of the expansion of Interstate 595.
 
The entire golf course has been rebuilt, with new grass, greens, cart paths, bunkers and irrigation. Several holes were re-routed and more than 900 trees and thousands of aquatic plants installed.
 
The course now has four sets of tees, from 6,398 down to 4,900 yards. It also has a lighted driving range, which I've always thought was a necessity for a municipal course.
 
Another thing I like is the walking option, which isn't always there in busy Broward County. Green fees are in the $19 to $39 range, with various other discounts, including the aforementioned "20-Something" rates.
 
They're using a temporary clubhouse while they put on the finishing touches.
 
The complete redesign is by Harrison Minchew, who used to be one of the lead designers for Arnold Palmer's company.
 
The cost of the renovation for the nearly 40-year-old course was $4.75 million. The course is sharing drainage systems with two other privately-owned courses in the I-595 area, a move that officials claim saved the state $60 million.
 
Maybe that's why they can afford to give discounts to the 20-Somethings.
