Why should I join Golfing Elite, when I can get a golf break at a resort by searching the Internet?
We believe that only the best will do, and that is why Golfing Elite only negotiate savings and benefits with 4 and 5 star golf resorts. You can be assured that when you book through us you can expect the very best service and savings at the most luxurious resorts. In addition, we have done all the hard work so you don’t have to. You can find over 100 of the world’s most luxurious resorts offering you savings and benefits, as well as many exclusive offers, in just one place - www.golfingelite.com.
Once I join, can my family and friends also enjoy the same savings and benefits as me?
In short, yes. If you have booked your family or friends to accompany you to a golf resort or hotel, they will share the same benefits, savings and high level of service that you receive. And even if you, or accompanying friends or family, are not playing golf, we have arranged additional privileges and benefits, such as upgrades, free spa treatments and welcome gifts that will transform your holiday.
Will there be new courses added to the program?
Yes. The club recruitment program is an ongoing process. We forge relationships with only the very best clubs to bring Golfing Elite members a comprehensive selection of great courses and resorts worldwide.
Can I play at The Old Course St Andrews?
The Old Course at St Andrews is normally accessed by entering the Links Trust ballot the day prior to the desired tee time. Occasionally, 2 or 3 times a year, the Links Trust will release some bookable tee times for the Old Course which include a compulsory 2nd round on another Links Trust Course. These have to be pre-booked many months in advance. However through a Golfing Elite partner, guaranteed tee-times can be arranged when booking a 2 or 3 night stay at a local hotel.
Can I book a flight through Golfing Elite?
Golfing Elite will refer you to our Travel Services who can take your details and try to find the best priced flight available but ONLY if a UK flight.
Do I need to present my membership card at the courses?
Golfing Elite members are advised to carry their card with them as they may be asked to confirm their identity when arriving at the resort check-in or at the golf reception desk.
Can you get me on Augusta?
Regrettably, no. Augusta is probably one of, if not THE world’s most exclusive golf club and undoubtedly the most sought after. To become a member of Augusta you have to be invited. There are only approximately 150 members who can invite guests only about 4 times a year. So opportunities are very rare indeed!
Can you get me on courses that aren’t listed in the programme?
If there is a specific course that you would like to play that is considered one of the top courses, we will make an enquiry on your behalf.
Will I get preferential treatment over members at the courses in the programme?
No. Golfing Elite does not grant any privileges over and above members of host clubs. It is purely designed to ease access through an arrangement between Golfing Elite and the clubs. It is not intended as a means to circumvent the purchasing of a golf club membership.
Access to all participating Clubs is subject to availability and at their discretion.
