    • GolfNow Basics
      • Why don’t I get an email after I sign up?

        Our email offers usually contain the best deals, but they are limited. They are not sent to each customer every day. We follow a rotation so that everyone has an opportunity to receive our best deals. Please be patient, an offer will arrive soon.

      • Why am I required to create a username?

        We recently updated our username format requirements. As a result, those that did not comply with our updated requirements were assigned a temporary username. You may update your username at any time within your account. Usernames may be used for participation in exciting new features and programs on GolfNow. Please review the following username requirements: 20 characters or less
        No spaces
        No invalid characters (i.e. &, #, %, *)
        No inappropriate language

      • My emails are not being sent in the language I selected in my preferences – why?

        Email language preference changes can take up to 24 hours to update in the system. It is possible that you might still receive emails in the original language until this update occurs.

      • What is SSL?

        Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. The link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their customers`online transactions.

    • Tee Times
      • How far in advance are tee times available?

        Most tee times are available 14 to 30 days in advance. However, there may be times from some courses available up to 90 days in advance.

      • Did I get the tee time?

        After completing your tee time purchase, you will be shown a Thank You page containing the details for your reservation; this is your confirmation that a tee time reservation has completed successfully. In rare instances there may be a technical issue that affects the completion of your reservation, and one of our representatives may contact you to assist in finding an alternative tee time. If you have any questions about your tee time booking, you can contact us through the chat tool.

      • Why do you offer tee times that end up not being available?

        The tee time inventory shown on the website is based on supply and demand. When tee times are loaded into our system the inventory is available, but tee times may sell through a number of different channels. To see if a tee time is still available, just start the booking process.

        Our system will check to see if the tee time is still available. If so, you will be able to continue the booking process. If the tee time is no longer available, we will try to display the closest available tee time and you will be asked if you want to continue the booking process with the new tee time. In some instances, you may receive pending charges during the booking process. Your bank may place a "hold" on a set amount of funds for several days. If this occurs, please contact the issuing bank with questions.

      • Why do tee times seem to appear and disappear?

        When you click on a tee time and select the number of players, the tee time is put on hold for five minutes. This allows you time to complete the booking process. If you do not complete the process, that time will be removed from hold and appear on the website later.

      • How are the estimated tee time savings on GolfNow calculated?

        To help you find the best prices on tee times at all of our golf courses, we compare the currently available rate to past purchases for the particular golf course over the previous six-month period. The strikethrough price represents the highest price other golfers have paid for a tee time at the golf course in the last six months.

        Limiting the comparison window to a six-month period helps to account for changes in management, conditions and more, giving you a sense of the savings available on each tee time.

    • Transactions
      • Why is payment due in full for some and not for others?

        Some tee times on our web site require full payment online, while others must be paid at the golf course. Tee times with the biggest savings require up-front online payment.

      • My card is good, why won’t your system accept it?

        We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. In the U.S. only, we also accept Discover. Please check that your credit card information has been entered correctly. Double check your card number and expiration date.

      • What about sales tax?

        Most tee times do not include sales tax. However some courses do include Sales Tax in the price of the tee time. If Sales Tax is included you will see the Tax Included Icon on the specific tee time. You can also Click on any tee time, and check Tee Time Details, to determine if sales tax is included.

      • Do you charge a transaction fee?

        Convenience fees are charged for many GolfNow transactions, but active GolfNow VIP members receive waived fees for all of their bookings.

        GolfNow VIP members enjoy waived fees on every booking, all year long. Whether you book through the website, GolfNow app or your exclusive VIP support line, every round you book is fee-free.

      • Is the transaction fee refundable?

        Convenience fees may be refunded only if a golf course is closed due to weather conditions.

        Our tee times are non-cancelable and non-refundable. If the golf course is closed due to weather we will issue a refund for any fees paid online.

      • Will I incur any currency fees related to international bookings?
