    Golf at Divi Question

    My dad and brother want to golf when we go to Aruba the first week of July. They havenít golfed in over 15 years. Will they get paired up with serious golfers? Or will they be able to go at their own pace?

    i cannot imagine that they would be paired up into a foursome.
    if they were, then the starter would use the handicaps.

    i would guess that your dad and brother will be paying as a twosome and go at their own pace.
    However if their pace is incredilbly slow, the ranger might move them along at a quicker pace.
    (but they would have to be real real slow)

    Call the course before you go, they will suggest the time and day that it will be less crowded. They have tournaments on Wednesdays and Fridays and some weekends.

    Paul - Is it really only $75 total for 2 people and that includes the green fees, clubs, and cart? Wow, that sounds like a great deal. Is this after 2pm every day? Or only specific days. And it sounds like from your reply, that my dad and brother will be automatically paired up with another couple. Did I understand correctly?

    It may be right. A round is only 9 holes. I would pack a dozen balls in the luggage, just in case. You know how we hackers are.
    Here's their link if you don't already have it.

    It looks like it is $75 each after 3pm which is still pretty reasonable IMO.

    I have never played at the Divi but if I did and there was water....I could loose all 3 balls on that hole. My golf balls seek water like a person in the desert seeks it...my game needs work, lol. The positive would be I would reach the 19th hole quicker than the rest

    Thanks everyone! I contacted Divi Golf and they said they would not pair up my dad and brother unless they were busy. Otherwise, they can golf on their own. The cost is $75 per person plus $35 for clubs. Or on Wednesday and Friday after 2pm, the cost is $75 per person total.
