Have been looking at the ClubCorp Travel membership recently and was hoping to get some feedback from any WRXers that are either current or past members. Basically I'd pay $50/month for the following, with the only restrictions being that I can't use the membership within 100 miles of my "residence", any guests I play with don't get the discount, and my lady can't use the membership until we're married.
  • Two free* green fees per club, each month at more than 200 country clubs (*only have to pay cart fees when playing)
  • Two free* 4-course meals per club, each month at business clubs (*only have to pay tax and 20% gratuity when eating)
  • Complimentary* access to loaner/rental clubs (*if available/offered)
  • 21-day advanced tee times (have to book thru ClubCorp's "Clubline" via phone or email)
  • Access to pools and tennis courts at clubs across the country
  • Special offerings at more than 1,000 hotels, resorts and restaurants (mostly just discounted room rates/specials from certain companies)
I've heard that some courses are a bit more difficult in terms of offering tee time availability to ClubCorp members, but this membership seems too good to be true. I'm headed to the Pinehurst/Charlotte areas this August, and Charleston, SC and San Diego, CA later this year. Between being able to play Pinehurst #9 twice for only $35 bucks per round (rack rate is $235) and the courses offered in San Diego and Charleston, I figure I'd easily make back the $600 I'd pay in the first year, without using any of the meals offered.

Anyways, wanted to see what others thought. I've read the other threads on here about the membership, but wanted to ask. Much appreciated.

Can't tee off before noon on weekends/holidays, but other than that it's as advertised.  

And you can add a "significant other" before you're married.  I did it last year with my then-fiance.  Make sure to ask about that when you sign up.

If you have three trips planned, I'd give it a shot.  I'm a member.

My buddy belongs to a club but signed up for this because he travels a lot for work and it works as advertised.  He is very happy with it.

Imagine if you love golf and drove a truck for a living!

I have been a member since February of this year and already got my value.  Have played two courses in Vegas and one in Pittsburgh all for a reasonable cart fee (total of 5 rounds including family).  Had no problems getting a tee time at those courses with a little bit of flexibility. All three were quality courses and the staff were very accommodating. Enjoyed one free meal so far in Chicago.  Work travel circumstances have not brought me closer to the city clubs.  I will also dine at the Country Clubs even if I do not get a free meal.  There is a nice club with excellent food near one of my work travel locations.  Have had a few nice meals this way and I feel like I support the program.  My next plan is to go away for a golf weekend with the son, perhaps the Washington DC area.

My home club was recently bought by local investors and they have not announced any plans regarding a management company or adding an affiliate program that would allow me the opportunity to play other private clubs.  If they did add some kind of network program, I would reconsider my travel membership.  But so far I really enjoy ClubCorp travel.

Youíre proving the value to clubcorp.  Limited incremental cost to you playing, they probably cover whatever cost they have with your cart fee.  More importantly, youíre buying some food and beer afterwards and youíre paying your $50 dues.  Your happy as you get a nice private experience when youíre on the road. Always good to see a business model where the customer and the seller get real value.

I am a clubcorp member and 3 of my buddies signed up for this program because we will take a couple trips every year. I would get them on as guests at the private courses but they had to pay the rack rate. I explained this program to them and they jumped on it and have played a few more rounds and have easily covered the cost.

Only ClubCorp Travel members can use the "2 complimentary rounds" I believe. So any non-members have to pay the guest rate (so green fee plus cart fee).

Thanks, I assumed you could bring one guest with the 2 for 1 round

i think there was a whole other thread on this topic from earlier in 2018. i think gist was that it's more than $50 a month if you live in certain cities and there are restrictions as to playing places within 100 or 200 miles of your home address. can anyone confirm?

I signed up last week. $50 per month, and all of the stuff I listed in the OP. Playing the Old Course at the Omni Bedford Springs in PA next weekend. Rack rate is $185 and I'm only paying $35. Clubline was easy to book thru and even had to change the tee time and it was easy. So far so good.

Thanks Rob! Keep us posted on your experiences. I'm traveling almost weekly for work now and really considering this if they actually provide the services described. I guess I'm so used to being screwed over by airline and other programs that I'm a skeptic now.
