HALF PRICE GOLF at over 3500 courses around the world!

Golf Today offers the widest online range of outstanding discount green fee programmes which entitle two to play for the price of one at any participating golf course.

UK & IRELAND

GreenFree vouchersAimed at the discerning golfer, GreenFree 2 for 1 Golf vouchers give you a choice of around 1,000 of the finest courses in the UK & Ireland for those who relish a demanding test or appreciate golf in beautiful surroundings.

Available GreenFree 2 for 1 Golf venues include The Belfry, Celtic Manor, De Vere Slaley Hall, Marriott Forest of Arden, St. Mellion International, Rosapenna and The Carrick to name but a few. Each voucher costs just £2.95 but can save you up to £170.00 for a single round!

The Open Fairways Membership CardOpen Fairways is a membership programme that allows you to choose from almost 1000 courses in the UK and Ireland, including over 200 prestigious venues, such as Addington Court, Fulford, the K Club, Royal Dornoch and Royal St David's, which belong to neither of the above two schemes. With one Membership Card, you can even take up to seven friends with you, who will all receive the same great green fee deal as you; the Card is also fully transferable, so you can lend it to friends, family and colleagues to play at no extra cost!

The Open Fairways membership also entitles you to great offers on holidays, lessons, golf insurance and equipment, as well as being valid at a further 850 courses throughout the world (see below), so you can take all your benefits with you on your overseas travels. And it's all included in our extra-special Christmas discount yearly membership fee of just £49 (with free P&P) - a saving of 45% on the regular price - exclusively for Golf Today readers!

Golf Fee Card InternationalGolf Fee Card International was founded in 1994 and today counts well over 100,000 golfers among its worldwide membership, offering discounts of up to 50% at over 2,000 golf clubs and 6,000 hotels in some 100 countries around the world, including over 150 in the UK and Ireland. With venues on every continent, the Card provides a unique service to today's globetrotting golfer. In addition, Golf Fee Card members enjoy reductions at car rental companies, spas, golf equipment retailers, ski resorts and more, as well as partnerships with several leading frequent flyer programmes.

Membership costs just €90 for a year, or €179 for three years (saving €91 and with a free gift), and you can order a partner Golf Fee Card for only €48 for one year or €101 for three years. You can also offer the card as a gift, and a complimentary special 'St Andrews Flask' will be sent along with the card. Postage and packing is free.

My Golf Pass is quite simply the easiest and most convenient way of playing discount golf at over 1000 courses, at rates that are often less than half the normal visitor green fee - so it's even better than 2 for 1 vouchers and costs just £1.95! There are no strings attached, you just decide the course you want to play and buy your e-pass online. You'll receive it by email in a matter of seconds, so you can even pick a course and play it the same day! Then book your time with the course over the phone, and when you get there simply pay the fantastic green fee rate provided by the partner clubs.

Your e-pass will also contain details of other unique discounts offered to My Golf Pass (MGP) users by the club, such as bar and restaurant discounts and special offers in the pro-shop and at the driving range. You won't find this with other schemes!

Discount levels will vary from Club to Club, but in many cases the MGP green fee will be similar to the member's guest rate, ie better than 50% off the published green fee! And - if you plan on playing more than twelve times a year - why not buy an annual membership for just £24.95, and get unlimited e-passes for a whole year!

Many Clubs in the MGP scheme accept none of the usual discount voucher schemes but will welcome MGP e-passes (these Clubs are marked with an asterisk * on our MGP venue listings). New clubs are joining the scheme every day and include venues in Europe, North America, the UAE and even Asia, so overseas golf can cost you a great deal less as well.

Between them, these four schemes give you privileged access and huge savings at over 1500 golf courses throughout the UK and Ireland - that's more than one in three of all the courses that exist - so you can be sure to find a great deal wherever you travel.

HALF PRICE & DISCOUNTED GOLF OVERSEAS

Golf O Max voucher books are the leading French golf discount scheme, entitling buyers to substantial reductions on green fees and sometimes other services (accomodation and meals, for example) at nearly half the golf courses in France, as well as selected destinations in Belgium, Luxemburg, Spain and Morocco. Each book costs just £39.00 and contains 1300 detachable vouchers, with discounts ranging from 2-for-1 green fees to 50% off a single green fee, 3-for-2, 25% off, or fixed amount reductions on the advertised visitor green fee.
