FAQs

Why should my course join?
Despite 2020 being a landmark year for golf, almost every course has room for more revenue or reduced expenses. Depending on your goals, time availability, and skill set, squeezing more revenue can be a tall order for a lot of courses. The Links Card offers a no-cost partnership that gives you access to thousands more golfers who can help fill in holes in your teesheet. Many of our members golf exclusively at partner courses.

Plus, unlike other marketing channels, when you partner with The Links Card, you're not making a large time commitment, sharing your revenue, nor spending your cash all while generating more revenue.
How much does it cost to become a partner course?
$0. We don't charge our partner courses to be on our platform.

Want to maximize your mornings? Use no time constraints
The less restrictions, the more business we can help you generate.
Who can claim a special rate?
Only our paying members. You'll know a paying member from their Links Card membership card that way you're not offering discounts to everyone - only to the target market.
Only 5-10 minutes a quarter, that's it?
Yep! Because we do all the active marketing on our end, which is why many of our partner courses consider us one of the best marketing partnerships around.
What does it mean to be a partner course?
When you partner with The Links Card, you're trying to fill holes in your teesheet without more marketing spend or resources. The Links Card provides access to known, avid golfers who can fill in without your course having to do active marketing, pay money up front, or a large time/resource commitment to do so.

We're committed to improving our services for courses, so, as in any good partnership, we're always open to feedback and suggestions so your course can count on us to really help drive additional sales.

Additionally, we sometimes flip the roles and bring in vendors who want to work want to offer special rates to courses (for example, we're researching vendors for drone footage).
How many courses have you worked with?
Over the years, we've worked with 300+ courses with 90% of partner courses staying partnered for 3+ years.
Are there a limited number of courses per state?
While we haven't limited the number of states in previous years, we are certainly open to it as we expand. The last thing we want to encourage is a race to the price bottom by having too many courses in a geographic area. We continuously evaluate and seek out feedback from our partner courses to make this determination.
