Finding the very best deal on golf equipment and gear can be like a sport in and of itself for golfers. The time of year can matter. Some swear the best deals come in spring. Others load up before the holidays.

One time of year that is mentioned in just about any column

on the topic is near the end of the golf season.

Black Butte Ranch is no exception. Each year, the Big Meadow Golf Shop holds a tent sale over Labor Day weekend that represents some of our best deals of the golf season. The sale is back again.

The Black Butte Ranch tent sale will be back at Big Meadow once again — Saturday, Sept. 2, and Sunday, Sept. 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day — and offer some incredible deals. Merchandise will be discounted up to 70 percent percent off retail prices.

The sale will offer items from most of golf’s premier designers, and that includes Black Butte Ranch’s logoed apparel for men, women, and children. Shoes, logo golf bags, sunglasses, headwear of all kinds, drivers, putters, wedges, irons, junior golf sets, and more will all be on sale. Even much of the newest equipment that stock the shelves of the golf shop will be discounted.

“Like every year, just about everything is going to be on sale,” said Jeff Fought, the director of golf at Black Butte Ranch. “The fall sale always includes some of our steepest discounts, even on new equipment and apparel.”

The sale tees of a busy Labor Day Weekend at Black Butte Ranch. In addition to Black Butte Ranch’s fun year-round activities, the Ranch will also be hosting its Art at the Ranch Art Fair Sept. 1 and 2, making Labor Day fun for everyone in the family. And both Big Meadow and Glaze Meadow are in prime shape ahead of the holiday.

Stay-and-play golf packages, start at just $119 per, per night. And there are some other great fall specials too.  You can continue to enjoy a $64 rate for play before 7:30 a.m. or between noon and 2:00 p.m., or if you’re looking to play as much spectacular fall golf as you can, take advantage of the $99 unlimited golf special offered every Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, August 21 through September 27.
