Typically, the deposit is no more than $50 per golfer. In some cases, it will be more. You will be informed of the required deposit when you receive your golf vacation quote. The deposit does not guarantee the proposed tee times and lodging, it simply starts the process. More often than we get what we are looking for. That said, tee times and lodging availability is dynamic, always changing, so if necessary, we will make revisions to ensure you get as close to what you are looking for. The $50 deposit per golfer is due at time of booking.
For most golf packages, the balance for the entire package is due no later than 30 days prior to your day of arrival. In some cases, this will vary, however, you will be informed of the terms.
We accept most major credit cards including American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, etc., and U.S. currency in the form of money orders and certified/cashier checks. Late payments (within 14 days of arrival date) must be in the form of a certified check or credit card. All payments are made to Golf Trip Junkie for the complete package including all surcharges (unless otherwise noted).
Terms of the cancellation policy will be outlined in each golf package. Any golf package may be canceled prior to the cancellation date. A $50 processing fee per person may be imposed for all canceled golf vacation packages. A $50 processing fee per person will be imposed for all canceled golf vacation packages. For cancellations inside the stated cancellation date, we reserve the right to impose a penalty of up to 100 percent on all money collected. This will vary by package, resort, hotel, and golf course, as there are different cancellation policies that we are contractually obligated to honor. For more details specific to your golf package, speak to your Golf Vacation Specialist.
All cancellations must be received in writing. Cancellations will be assessed cancellation penalties imposed by the hotel, golf courses, and/or car rental companies (for International travel). It is important to note that some hotels and golf courses have non-refundable deposits and strict cancellation policies, many of which vary from one golf destination to the next. In all cases, upon receipt of your quote and confirmed golf package, you will be informed of these policies.
Golf Trip Junkie’s golf experts are on hand during office hours to assist you. In almost all instances there are no change fees. We don't like them! If there ever is one that we can't avoid, when working with a partner of ours, you will be notified prior to the change. In those cases, we still do our best to avoid them. Like we said, we don't like them.
Your golf package will include hotel accommodations, confirmed tee times, green fees, and shared golf cart, as well as all appropriate taxes (unless otherwise noted).
Green fee refunds or Pro Shop credits will be given, by the golf courses, or refunded by Golf Trip Junkie, once notified by the resort or golf courses, for any closures due to inclement weather. If there are rainy conditions while the course is still open for play, refunds will not be granted. At all times, the issuing of refunds or credits are at the sole discretion of the Pro Shop Staff.
In general, resort wear is expected. Golf shoes (we suggest spikeless) and collared shirts are required at all times for men. Shorts are acceptable; however, courses with strict dress codes expect shorts to be at least 16'' in length. Please do not wear jeans, cut-offs, tank tops, or sneakers. For women, we recommend golf shoes with socks, collared shirts, and slacks, shorts, or golf skirts.
No, Golf Trip Junkie does not book flights at this time. We find that the majority of people want to book their own flights, often times using points from their rewards programs. However, we do book private charter flights, exclusively from Golf Trip Junkie, to our valued customers with a company that exceeds the highest of industry safety standards.
