GOLFHAWAIICARD Program Details

How To Use It

  • Golf fees are paid for at the individual golf properties using exclusive rates only available to HawaiiGolfDeals subscribers via the GOLFHAWAIICARD.
  • Tee time reservations may be made up to 90 DAYS in advance at ALL GOLFHAWAIICARD courses. Call or e-mail the golf courses you wish to play and make tee times. It is not necessary to say you are a GOLFHAWAIICARD holder unless there is some unlikely confusion. Under no circumstances should tee times be made via any online tee time service, including the one on the course’s own website!
  • Upon checking in, present your valid HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD and picture ID. The card is NOT TRANSFERABLE and may be used only by the person whose name appears on the face of the card.
  • In the unlikely event that an employee of a participating golf course is unfamiliar with the program, please ask for the head pro, director of golf or general manager.
  • Hawaii sales tax (4.166 – 4.712%) additional at most locations.
  • Multiple-day programs need not be utilized on consecutive days.
  • Multiple-day programs are payable on Day One (unless golf course suggests otherwise).
  • Additional days beyond the multiple-day scenario are usually prorated at the lowest rate shown if purchased on Day One. In other words, a three-day program for $240 will usually (but not always) be extended at $80 per-day for additional days if paid on Day One. Please inquire at the specific facility.
  • Each course uses a slightly different method to register the additional days in a multiple-day program. Be sure to ask about the check-in procedure for your additional days. Always bring your receipt from Day One, your card, picture ID and your HawaiiGolfDeals GHC Rate Card.
  • Replays on unlimited golf programs are always subject to availability and limited to same course on same day. Always check-in with a golf course staff member before playing additional holes.
  • RESTRICTIONS: There are very few restrictions in the GOLFHAWAIICARD program.
  • The HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD is issued on a “Program-Period” basis. Therefore, if you purchase a subscription during the period from Jan. 1 through Jun. 30, your GOLFHAWAIICARD is valid until Jul. 31. If you purchase a subscription covering the period from Jul. 1 through Dec. 31, your GOLFHAWAIICARD is valid until Jan. 31. In other words, a subscription is in effect anywhere from 30 days to seven (7) months based on when you subscribe and in accordance with the dates you will be in Hawaii. But don’t worry—no matter when you subscribe, the savings are substantial!

HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD holders are consistently among the most considerate golfers in the world. Please keep the tradition alive! Keep play moving, repair your own (and at least one additional) divot and ball mark at every on-course location. Treat each course like it’s your home course.

If you appreciated the golf experience, the value and the service, don’t hesitate to thank the staff and drop HawaiiGolfDeals a line. We appreciate testimonial feedback.

May the course be with you!

This  is not a requirement and you rarely need to make the time so far in advance in Hawaii, since we have never had one cardholder have a problem confirming a tee time. If you wish, you can simply present your HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD on a walk-up basis. Course phone numbers are included on the Rate Card. Under no circumstances should you make your tee time via any online tee time service including the one on the course’s own website!

Can my spouse and I use one GOLFHAWAIICARD for both of us?
No. Every golfer must have their own valid GOLFHAWAIICARD.

Is it worth subscribing if we are playing golf only two or three times?
The cost of subscribing is generally recovered on the first use of the GOLFHAWAIICARD. If you are playing twice, it is usually worth subscribing. If you are playing three times, it is always worth subscribing.

Are there blackout dates and/or any restrictions?
There are NO blackout dates for using the HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD and it may be used as often as you like while the card is valid. On rare occasions, a course is unavailable due to maintenance, a group booking or tournament. If so, the pro shop staff will inform you upon your tee time request and you can choose another day. There are very few restrictions in the GOLFHAWAIICARD program.

Does the HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD offer any other benefits?
Additional benefits vary by golf course (free pre-round range balls, merchandise & apparel discounts, etc.) and are outlined on the HawaiiGolfDeals Rate Card you will receive with your HawaiiGolfDeals newsletter and GOLFHAWAIICARD. On The Big Island, there is a GOLFHAWAIICARD dining and spa program.

What is meant by unlimited golf?
ALL HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD courses offer unlimited golf (same-course/same-day) to HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD holders. Replays within the unlimited golf feature are always subject to availability. Please check-in with the pro shop or starter before playing additional holes.

It appears that many (not all) GOLFHAWAIICARD courses offer complimentary range balls. Are these range balls also unlimited?
No. Generally, the participating courses supply a bucket of range balls which satisfy most golfers looking to warm up prior to their round. For those interested in an expansive warm-up or warm-down, you may purchase additional balls from the golf course at the going rate.

How does the multiple-day rate option work?
Many courses offer special pricing options for two or more days. The savings on a multiple-day basis is extraordinary. Most of the courses require full payment on Day One. Each course uses a different method to administer their multiple-day program, so be sure to ask at check-in what the procedure is for your additional days. Always bring your receipt from the first day plus your HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD, picture ID and Rate Card on each subsequent day. Multiple-day programs need not be utilized on consecutive days.

May I buy additional multiple days at the lowest rate?
Additional days beyond the multiple-day scenario are usually prorated at the lowest rate shown if purchased on Day One. In other words, a three-day program for $240 will usually (but not always) be extended at $80 per-day for additional days if paid on Day One. Please inquire at the specific facility.

Rush Service Option (Please read very carefully!)

Subscriptions purchased for the current six month period are mailed every Tuesday. However, for a small fee ($5 per-subscriber), we can mail your subscription with GOLFHAWAIICARD the next business day. For an additional small fee ($3 per-subscriber), HawaiiGolfDeals will fax our exclusive GOLFHAWAIICARD certificate(s) to your home, place of business or one of our participating golf courses in Hawaii—often within minutes or hours of placing your order! Weekend & holiday limitations may apply.

The rush certificate is used by subscribers and accepted by vendors exactly like a GOLFHAWAIICARD, but will not fit into your wallet.

If you order the Rush Certificates, you WILL NOT receive our standard wallet-size GOLFHAWAIICARD(s).

Generally, we can fulfill your subscription and issue the certificate(s) within 24 hours of your order submission. Of course, on weekends & holidays it may take 24-72 hours for us to send your certificates. Despite the importance of golf, and like most of our subscribers, we do take some time off on weekends & holidays.

Rush Certificates are sent via fax transmission.  Upon request, we can now send certificates via your email address. Please be advised that we will not email to a third party.

Just follow the simple instructions on our Shopping Cart (“SHOP HawaiiGolfDeals“) and be sure to give us all the required information. SHOP HawaiiGolfDeals will calculate and display your RUSH SERVICE & SHIPPING CHARGES and include them in your total subscription charges.

There is no reason to call, e-mail or contact us to follow-up your order. We have been servicing such requests for many years and your GOLFHAWAIICARD certificates will be transmitted to the fax number (or email address) you indicate within SHOP HawaiiGolfDeals.

If there is any issue with a very short time-frame, please indicate the golf course you will be playing at first (or next) and we will fax your certificate(s) there. Our GOLFHAWAIICARD courses are very used to receiving these fax certificates and presenting them to our valued subscribers.

How We Do It

While far from the only golf destination in the world, Hawaii is certainly the most alluring. Sitting in the middle of the Pacific Ocean 3,000 miles from North America and even further from Asia, it is also the most isolated. Perhaps that explains why there is so little useful information available about Hawaii’s golf courses.

With more than 80 golf courses on six islands, you’d think you could walk into any fine bookstore, slap down a few bucks and start researching that golf vacation you’ve been fantasizing about for years. It certainly seems the information gap is even greater than the gap of ocean between you and your fantasy.

Enter HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD. We endeavor to bridge the gap. Simply put, we deliver useful information about selected Hawaii golf courses while at the same time bringing value to your game. Now, that’s a novel concept in the publishing world.

Here’s how it works! We visit and play all of the golf courses in Hawaii. Shortly thereafter, we begin the process of enticing selected courses into the program. Call, visit, cajole, e-mail, call, fax, call, grovel, call, e-mail, visit, fax, call… And then, several times, we repeat the process all over again.

Eventually, we convince most of our target golf properties that you can’t wait to play their course. Unfortunately, the resulting hair loss is about to set our intrepid publisher back several grand for hair replacement.

Fortunately for you, my loss is your gain. Just comb through the HUGE SAVINGS (on unlimited golf with cart). We even impart the ubiquitous “useful information.” You can’t brush these deals aside. Yes, unlimited golf with few, if any, restrictions and absolutely no surcharges.

And we’re talking about wonderful courses that meet our standards for design, aesthetics, service, maintenance (an occasional bald spot is not repulsive) and value. If you haven’t played our fabulous roster of GOLFHAWAIICARD courses, then you don’t know what you’re missing? If you have, you know the only thing better than the courses themselves are the value programs we’ve put together at our hair-raising peril.

So, what do you have to do?

Just look through this truly amazing website. Put each incredible value program to memory and repeat this phrase 18 or more times: I can’t believe how much more golf I can play in Hawaii with the HUGE SAVINGS I’ll receive with my GOLFHAWAIICARD.

Now, click GET IT NOW, which takes you to “Shop HawaiiGolfDeals,” and please follow the ordering procedure. That was easy! You only pay us for the subscription(s). Golf fees are paid for at the individual golf properties using exclusive rates only available to HawaiiGolfDeals subscribers.

Please remember, in order to expand and improve our programs, we need your help! Here’s how: (1) Only patronize HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD courses; (2) If you have the unbelievably bad judgment to play a course outside of our program, request the best deal or special available and make it a point to ask the director of golf or head pro why they are not honoring your HawaiiGolfDeals GOLFHAWAIICARD. Then, be sure to announce how many rounds you’re playing elsewhere.

Oh yes, when visiting our HawaiiGolfDeals’ GOLFHAWAIICARD golf courses, please refrain from boisterous displays of intense satisfaction upon realizing how much you are saving. The guy behind you is probably paying a whole lot more and we don’t want things to get too hairy.
