Golfing Magazine's annual Free Golf Program is back in 2014, and so is its Early Bird Special, which gives local golfers a discount on already-discounted rates at top courses across the Island.
For $39 now through the end of April, the Hicksville-based magazine's Free Golf Program includes a one-year subscription plus a certificate that entitles holders to "free" green fees at nearly a dozen Long Island courses. (Only cart fees are required.) After April the subscription rises to $49. Participating courses will be announced later in the spring. Certificates are valid for one round at each course until the end of the year.
On top of that, the certificate is also valid at dozens of courses across upstate New York and New England. Here on the Island, the 2013 program included 12 courses from as far west as the new South Bay Country Club in Oceanside to the eastern tip at Island's End in Greenport.
