www.LeadingCourses.com loves their food and now comparing the price of Green Fees to how many Big Mac’s it costs – has the world gone mad?
We did not only look at the best countries to play in when you’re traveling, but also which countries are the best to live in as a golfer. To create this list, we used the Big Mac Index. The Big Mac index was invented by newspaper The Economist in 1986 as a lighthearted guide to whether currencies are at their “correct” level. It is based on the theory of purchasing-power parity.
In other words, we’ve compared the price of a Big Mac in a country with the price of a green fee. How does the price of a big mac relate to the average green fee price in a country?
Wales offers the best average green fee rate of £34.00 with Northern Ireland at the same rate but the courses in Wales receiving better course reviews. Don’t forget reviews are as individual as how you like your burger and fries.
The UK sits at an average of 10 big Mac’s for the average Green Fee – please do not try paying in the Big Mac’s though unless the pro has a healthy appetite.
