    FAQs

    1. Golf credit cards usually come with high annual fees. Is it worth availing a golf credit card?

      You will be the best judge in this case. It depends on how often you use a golf course facility. If you are someone who visits golf courses quite often and enjoys the game, you can consider getting a gold credit card as it will help you save a lot of money. Golf, in general, is an expensive game.

    2. Do I have to make a prior booking for using a golf course through my gold credit card?

      Yes, you will be required to make a prior booking to use the facility. For a particular tee-off date, the bookings usually open 15 days in advance. However, this may vary from one golf club to another. It is advisable to get in touch with the golf club that you are visiting to have a clarity about it.

    3. Are there banks which offer golf privileges on supplementary or add-on cards as well?

      In general, card issuers offer the golf privileges for the primary cardholder only. However, you can get in touch with your issuer to understand the terms and conditions and have a better idea.

    4. Do the golf clubs in India allow us to bring guests for a session?

      Yes, you will be allowed to invite guests to play with you. However, the charges for the guest player will have to be borne separately.

    5. Is it compulsory for me to bring a guest at a session?

      No, it is not mandatory for you to bring a guest along with you. However, there are golf clubs which do not allow single players on weekends (and even on weekdays, in some instances). In such cases, the golf club might tag one single player with another if that suits the requirements.

    6. Am I allowed to cancel a confirmed booking at a golf course?

      Yes, you can cancel your confirmed booking at a golf course. However, in such cases, the booking has to be cancelled at least 6 days before the tee time. You should also keep in mind that some golf clubs do not allow the cancellation of bookings.

    7. What happens to the free slot that I have availed through my golf credit card if I am unable to make it for the golf session and fail to cancel the booking on time?

      In case you are unable to make it for the golf session and you fail to cancel the booking on time, the free slot that you have availed through your golf credit card will be deducted from the total number of complimentary slots that are available on your card.

    8. Is it mandatory for me to provide a handicap certificate to play golf?

      Yes, in most golf clubs, you will be required to present your handicap certificate to be able to use the facility.
