If you are a member of a private golf club, and want the opportunity to play on different courses, consider joining a golf network. The concept is gaining popularity around the world and offers a unique experience for any golf enthusiast.
What Is a Private Golf Network?
It is based on the concept of reciprocal play. Basically, if you are member of one club, say, in Cleveland and you are going on vacation in South Carolina, you can play on a participating golf course there. The course does not have to necessarily be in the United States, it can be anywhere in the world, as long as the golf clubs are participating with each other.
How Much Does It Cost?
It is free. you will still have to pay your fees to your 'home' golf club, and you can enjoy a discount on fees at your reciprocal course.
What Are the Benefits?
Participating in a reciprocal-play golf network gives you exposure to many different courses around the world. You will save money on green fees and rentals, and you will be able to expand your network by meeting new people who share your love for the game. If you are going on vacation, you can use the golf course at your destination for a reduced fee.
How Do I Arrange a Tee Time at a Participating Course?
Once you join a golf network, contact one of the representatives and let them know which golf course you are interested in. They will help you set up a date and time for your tee-off.
How Do I Know Which Golf Courses I Have Access To?
When you join a private golf network, you will have access to a toll-free number, where several representatives are available to answer all of your questions, including which courses are part of the network. There are more that are constantly being added, so chances are you will be able to participate in one of your choosing.
How Does It Differ From a Social Golf Network?
A social golf network is an online community where you can meet others from all over the world. It is a place to share tips and strategies on how to improve your game, buy and sell equipment and get to know other people on the internet. Joining a social golf network is free and you may be able to get more information on other types of associations and clubs in your area and beyond.
You purchase your original timeshare location and pay the appropriate fees. If you want to vacation at another timeshare location, all you have to do is let the administrators know and they will arrange everything for you. This gives you an opportunity to see various locations and meet many different people. They are extremely popular and give you some great exposure to other parts of the world.
