Want to take a few lessons, improve your short game, or introduce your whole family to the game of golf? Maybe you just need to hit a few balls on the range now and then to relieve stress. Affordable fees and memberships, beautifully maintained greens and top-notch services are available for you through the Family Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR) golf program at several installation golf courses located in Germany, Spain, Italy, Turkey and United Kingdom.

Each professionally maintained course is designed to highlight the natural, picturesque local scenery, while providing a challenging game for players from beginner to advanced skill set. The courses also provide facilities or services such as 9-hole or 18-hole courses; practice ranges, putting and/or chipping greens; spacious clubhouse, dining facilities and event rooms; pro shops with top-of-the-line equipment; club and cart rental; group and individual lessons for all ages and skills; youth programs, golf clinics and numerous special events and tournament opportunities. All MWR golf courses also offer a unit tournament program that are great for fundraising and morale enrichment. Tournaments are formatted as either two or four-man scrambles, with range balls, lunch and equipment rentals usually included in the tournament fees.

Daily and annual greens fees are determined by rank, length of play and whether the player has member or nonmember status. Daily fees for individuals range from $8 to $35, and annual fees range from single and junior memberships starting at $350 to family memberships up to approximately $1,150.
