Innovative Marketing by a Local Golf Course

If you live in Northern California, you know we've been hit by four storms and have had plenty of rain. Golf is not a possibility right now.

I received an e-mail from a course that I like to play, the Links at Bodega Harbour, which is located in Bodega Bay. Did you ever see Hitchcock's The Birds? That movie was filmed in this scenic coastal town.

The e-mail was an offer to buy a tee time for a foursome at $1 per hole for weekdays or $2 per hole for weekends. So for a weekday round, it'll cost $18 for the green fee and $15 for the cart. It's a better rate than their usual weekday round, and you have until April 18th to use the round.

I liked their ingenuity in promoting their course during the storms, and that they're making revenue when no one is even on the course.

If you're in the Bay Area, check out the link above and enjoy Bodega Bay and the Links!
