Virginia Beach, Va. – RoomSaver.com, the Web’s most comprehensive source for hotel discounts, today announced that RoomSaver.com, www.RoomSaver.com, and Golf Card International, www.golfcard.com, are joining forces to provide travelers with discounts at over 3,700 golf courses across the U.S. and Canada.
Rick Murchake, General Manager of RoomSaver.com, stated, “We are pleased to team up with Golf Card International and offer our value-conscious travelers a membership to the Golf Card, which provides significant savings on thousands of golf courses.”
Golf Card International’s presence on RoomSaver.com’s Travel Resources will present travelers with a discount price for becoming a member of Golf Card International. In addition to discounts at over 3,700 golf courses in North America, the Golf Card also offers free greens fees at over 1,000 courses, “2 for 1” at many courses, discounts on Pro Shop purchases at select courses, as well as savings on golf packages at over 240 “Stay and Play” resorts.
While many other discount programs and clubs restrict weekend play, and limit use to off-season times, the Golf Card does not have seasonal restrictions and the vast majority of courses permit weekend play. To use the Golf Card, members simply identify themselves as a Golf Card member when they reserve a tee time and show the card when they arrive.
Golf Card President Bruce Hoster remarked, "We are excited to have this opportunity. Golf Card International expects to increase its membership through its partnership with RoomSaver.com, due primarily to RoomSaver.com’s appeal to value-conscious travelers."
