A surcharge is an additional fee you pay over and above the base cost of golf when you choose to play premium courses. Surcharges reflect a higher cost of green fees than what is included in the base price non surcharge courses. Some surcharge courses are worth paying the extra surcharge fee, SOME ARE DEFINITELY …NOT! Want to save money and PLAY the very best courses… ASK YOUR GOLFMASTER. Rest assured that when you book with Golf Trek all surcharges are included. We never have ANY hidden fees.
