I Did not recieve any notice about this. I updated the golfnow app and on changelog it says vip changed to golfpass. Wtf?


They are combining revolution golf and other stuffs into one membership. Golfpass and golfpass+

Golfnow vip is now golfpass+ and of course with this exciting new program they increased the price to $199. (I have original $99) What a great way to introduce a program.

I am probably going to cancel vip now. They say you get $250 worth free hot deals but it's divided into 12 months so you get measly $20 voucher per month. And with the hot deals redemption getting crappier, why bother?

Any other alternative?

That’s only $240. Even less that promised.

I got emails about the new Golfnow program and the new Teeoff.com program. Both of them are too expensive for my blood. I'm betting that the "free" hot deals would be limited to Mon-Thurs and have to be booked 3 days in advance. If so, there's no way I'd be able to squeeze in one of those each month.

I'm also still on the $99 VIP, but I doubt that I'll renew when mine expires in next month.

mine expires in March too. Don't forget to turn off that AUTO RENEW!


I checked out teeoff program. It's SO MUCH better. $150/year and you get 3x$50 voucher (much easier to use), and 25% off EVERYTIME you book hotdeals. Or EXTRA 10% off on TOP of existing coupon codes.

I know where I'm going to.

I like Teeoff's program better, but for me they don't have enough courses available in my area. Golfnow has about 12 courses within a 30 mile radius. Teeoff only has 4, and all 4 are also on Golfnow. Out of those 4, only 1 is really part of my group's regular rotation so I'm not sure I'd get good value out of that membership. I'd probably break even or a little better (after the 3 vouchers), but I'll probably pass and reevaluate it next year.

Well, it's $21 a month, so it's $2 more than advertised!

Taking this and making a monthly thing makes absolutely no sense to people in climates where we only get 8 months to play unless we like playing in crap conditions.  I got it last year even at $199 because the free hot deals, discount, and reward points I racked up still made sense financially.  Not anymore.

I always auto renewed at the $99 rate but now it says $199. Guess that "grandfathered in rate" is going away?

I’ve been using GolfNow for 2+ years now and I’ve never been paired up with anyone else. There’s been times when others have bought the same tee time, but when I get to the course so far the courses I play  just let us go out separately.

Taking hot deals means usually you are paired with someone else.

Nothing much than a handshake and telling names that you probably forget by the 3rd hole.

I don't mind playing with random folks as long as they keep a decent pace. I've met a few really nice folks on cheap hot deals tee times. Usually they are people who enjoy playing and don't take themselves too seriously, so it's generally a fun round. They don't spend the whole round griping about the course because they only paid $10-15. They're just getting some swings in and soaking up the outdoors.

I called golf pass the other day to ask about the tee times. I was told that you get one promo code per month that's good for any "hot deal" tee time regardless of price. The guy also said that each code is valid for one year. If you don't use the code the month it is issued, no problem it rolls over.

This seems odd considering what I've read about the previous program golf now offered. It also mentions "more than $240 a year in free golf"  

If what the told me is true then it seems like a no brainier. $10/month for a free dozen balls and pretty flexible promo codes for "hot deals"

Does anyone have first hand experience with the new program?

Yeah, I am cautious about it, but I signed up for the maximum package.

The restrictions are:...   MON THROUGH THURSDAY AFTER NOON

At my level, the benefits are: cancellation up to an hour before the tee time, one unlimited value hot deal per month.  I live in a tourist destination, so the hot deals are often worth $80-$100.  I redeemed my first coupon for $85 for a tee time this Wednesday.  Even with local rates, it's a good value.


The $20 maximum thing is for those in the grandfathered plans that (paid less?) and now get the new content.

how much is maximum pkg? Must be $199/year too?

If it's one hot deal per month (no $20 limit) AND it rolls over, then this is a no-brainer.

Just saw the TOC. even $99/year plan has free golf/month. Hot damn. I'm going to cancel mine and sign up new.

According to the FAQ it says specifically each month you will be sent a code for a Hot Deal Tee Time code for up to $21.

So the rep from the phone call stated above is probably misinformed.

Ive been thinking about signing up for GolfPass just for the free monthly golf....but apparently at this point it is still not clear what that gets you.
1 Hot deal for $21....no thanks.
1 Hot deal with no $ maximum that rolls over if you dont use it....yes please.
