The Lung Golf Card

About The Lung Golf Card

The “Lung Golf Card” was a golf discount card whose official name was Golf Privilege Card and benefited the American Lung Association. 
Based on our research, the Golf Privilege Card has stopped operations and is no longer availabe in the US. 

It offered discounted rounds of at golf courses in a booklet that cost roughly $70 with 78% of the proceeds going to programs and services, research, advocacy, and public health education related to lung cancer, lung disease, and lung cancer research. 22% went back into building operational capacity.

History of the Lung Golf Card

We’ve scoured the internet to find information on the Lung Golf Card but are coming up short. 

What we do know is that under previous ownership of The Links Card, we were a partner that helped sell and distribute their booklet sometime between 2010-2019, but current ownership doesn’t know the history nor the relationship between the two. 

However, the American Lung Association seems to have shut down operations of the Golf Lung Card.

We reached out many different branches of the American Lung Assocation in 2021 and can’t seem to find anyone that has knowledge of the card and many of the links found online are now dead websites. 

Most of the articles we find are from 2008-2015. 

However, Canada’s Nova Scotia region does seem to be operational still.
