    • Tee Times
      • How far in advance are tee times available?

        Most tee times are available 14 to 30 days in advance. However, there may be times from some courses available up to 90 days in advance.

      • Did I get the tee time?

        After completing your tee time purchase, you will be shown a Thank You page containing the details for your reservation. If you see that page, you have successfully booked the tee time. If not, please complete the Contact Us form.

      • Why do you offer tee times that end up not being available?

        The tee time inventory shown on the website is based on supply and demand. When tee times are loaded into our system the inventory is available, but tee times may sell through a number of different channels. To see if a tee time is still available, just start the booking process.

        Our system will check to see if the tee time is still available. If so, you will be able to continue the booking process. If the tee time is no longer available, we will try to display the closest available tee time and you will be asked if you want to continue the booking process with the new tee time. In some instances, you may receive pending charges during the booking process. Your bank may place a "hold" on a set amount of funds for several days. If this occurs, please contact the issuing bank with questions.

      • Why do tee times seem to appear and disappear?

        When you click on a tee time and select the number of players, the tee time is put on hold for five minutes. This allows you time to complete the booking process. If you do not complete the process, that time will be removed from hold and appear on the website later.

    • Transactions
      • Why is payment due in full for some and not for others?

        Some tee times on our web site require full payment online, while others must be paid at the golf course. Tee times with the biggest savings require up-front online payment.

      • Can I book over the phone?

        If you would prefer booking a tee time by phone, just give us a call at 800-752-9020 8AM - 8PM (EST) 7 Days a Week.

      • My card is good, why won’t your system accept it?

        We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. In the U.S. only, we also accept Discover. Please check that your credit card information has been entered correctly. Double-check your card number and expiration date. If that does not work, complete the Contact Us form and be sure to include the error message you are receiving.

      • What about sales tax?

        Most tee times do not include sales tax. However some courses do include Sales Tax in the price of the tee time. If Sales Tax is included you will see the Tax Included Icon on the specific tee time. You can also Click on any tee time, and check Tee Time Details, to determine if sales tax is included.

      • Are there any convenience fees charged for booking tee times?

        Most reservations made through the GolfNow website, app or call center include a convenience charge. This charge entitles GolfNow users to the benefits and protection that comes with our exclusive Worry-Free Tee Times™
