Golf Benefit and Access FAQs
Membership Enrollment FAQs
Due to the nature of our agreements, and the exclusivity with our private clubs, our club list is not publicly shared.
Members of Affiliated Clubs can request to view the list with their membership director or similar employee.
Current Members with Palmer Advantage can view the list when you login.
All golf benefits are offered on a space-available basis. Weekends are typically only open after 2:00pm local time. Other peak and prime times may be unavailable due to the nature of Clubs accommodating their own Members.
Yes! Members may bring up to three (3) accompanied guests on a space-available basis. If these guests are also Members with Palmer Advantage, they may be entitled to complimentary greens fees, and if they are not they will pay a guest fee.
Private clubs providing "cart fee only" benefits are not accessible to Members of a Club (or with a home/business) that is located within 75 miles. Most "pay for play" clubs and other public courses have no mileage restrictions. This is subject to change, and details are presented in our Member-only club list.
Members are not limited to the number of rounds they can play "per membership." Rules are based around how many times a Member may visit a specific club or course in a certain time frame.
Members may receive two (2) single rounds of "cart fee only" golf per property per thirty (30) days. These single rounds may be used by the Member, their spouse/partner, or eligible accompanied dependents in any combination.
Participating clubs are marked as "cart fee only" in our club list.
Members may receive up to three (3) rounds per property, per 12-month period.
Clubs are marked as "pay for play" in our club list.
"Cart fee only" rounds are paid by the Member and their guests directly to the course at the time of check-in.
"Pay for Play" rounds have a guest fee that is inclusive of greens, guest, cart, taxes, and any other fees that are paid upon confirmation by the Member for themself and any guests.
All golf tee time requests are submitted to our Concierge either by phone or online. These contact details are shared with Members upon enrollment.
Most golf courses allow us to book tee times 14 - 30 days in advance. However, some courses have more limited advance booking windows of 10 days or less.
Courses where we cannot book tee times 14 days or more in advance are marked with their more limited time windows in our club list.
