PAYMENTS & BOOKINGS

All reservations made outside of 7 days require prepayment. The other option is to wait until 7 days prior to book with Pro Shop and pay upon arrival. We do not hold tee times without prepayment.
What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellations include canceling players from the package, a portion of the package or the entire package. If a customer requests a cancellation and is willing to accept a rain check in lieu of refund, no cancellation fee will be charged; however, refund or rain check considerations involving golf cancellations (including no shows) occurring within 24 hours to arrival are subject to the course's discretion.
Cancellations involving lodging accommodations require advance notice, vary by property and may incur a charge for one night's stay. (Please ask package coordinator for more details regarding each property's cancellation policy.)
If a rain check is declined, then the following cancellation fees apply:
- 30-15 days prior to arrival a $25.00 per person fee,
- 14-1 days prior to arrival a $50.00 per person fee,
- 24 hours prior to arrival will be subject to each course's/hotel's discretion.
