GolfPass is trash now....they changed the deal.


Recommended Posts

So GolfPass had a really good deal since they began last year. You join for a year, and get a coupon code each month for a free round of golf. That was an awesome deal. Two friends, and I joined last year, and have been playing nice courses in our area every month.  Come to find out that Golfpass has changed the agreement in June, and is no longer issuing the agreed upon promo codes, and instead is only giving $10 coupons each month.  That is a HUGE change. I can see changing at the end of the agreement/contract time, but to just change the rules in the middle is really awful. Anyone interested in a class action lawsuit?? I called them about it, and they said it was in the fine print that they could change the deal any time. There has to be a ton of pissed off people out there about this. Rory Mcilroy and NBC are partners in the whole GolfNOW/GolfPass deal.

Golfpass/golfnow/teeoff/golfWhatever has been crap for years now.

I've never used it. Just cancel your membership. If enough people cancel, they'll get the hint. Or they'll go out of business. 

Oh man...do I miss the Movie Pass!!!

That change was announced back in April, wasn’t it? Effective towards the end of June. 

 

I’m guessing they referenced the published terms and conditions published continually on the website and which you would have had to acknowledge to sign up, not “fine print”.

 

Sounds like it was a really good benefit but one that courses and/or the plan couldn’t deliver on because of COVID. I’d be disappointed as well, but it’s within the realm of what you agreed to when you signed up. 
 

Maybe it will change back at some point.

I had Deal Pass from TEE-Off.  When Golfnow bought them, they switched me over to Golf Pass.  The benefits were nowhere near as good.  I immediately called them and they refunded my pro-rated membership.  They didn't even put up a fight.  I think their plan is to give a ton of benefits up front to get people signed up on auto-renew,  downgrade the benefits over time, and hope that no one notices or cancels.  Of course, for those that call them on it, they know they don't have a leg to stand on so they refund you.

 

I'm not impressed with the direction of GolfNow over the years, but it was too good to be true early on anyways.

You got that right, and thanks for the replies. Just to keep things on the right track, for those that don't quite understand, that wasn't the deal when I signed up last November. They announced the upcoming change this April, and it went into effect in June.  There has to be a lot of pissed off folks out there.  At least they could have honored the original deal until people's yearly contract/agreement ran out. I immediately turned off my auto-renew, and that's that. Will be interesting to see where it goes from here. I'll never see Rory Mcilroy in the same light again. He was partners with  NBC in this deal.

I tried GolfPass and it was not worth it.  I found that if you called the courses during the week, they had the same if not better deals than what was on there and the other online booking sites.  Most of the courses around here will have set prices for the year, but if you go and call them, 9/10 times you get a better price because they are begging people to come and play.  Also, small local newspapers have ads in them for deals.
