How to Maximize Credit Card Benefits:

  • I booked 3 rounds using my Citi Prestige card for me and 3 rounds using my wife’s Citi Prestige card (also for me)
  • I Booked in advance, as far as 90 days out
  • I made sure to avoid trying to book courses that were closed due to reseeding
  • I played 6 out of 7 days between Oct 2-8, 2016
  • Total cost for me: $0   |      Retail cost: $806     |      Total saved: $806
Standard booking rules based on Citi Prestige terms:
  • Unfortunately – Citi is pulling this benefit as of 7/27/2017
  • Primary card holder is entitled to 3 free rounds per calendar year
  • You can only book your free tee time in your name: can’t book for others without paying in full up front
  • You must book your free round at least three days in advance and no more than X days in advance (varies by course and for the courses I booked – 30 days max)
  • You can only have one active reservation at a time. You must cancel or play your active reservation to be able to make the next reservation
