5.4Cancellations. Some golf courses may allow tee time reservations to be cancelled after they are purchased in accordance with the cancellation policy stated in the Services (the “Cancellation Policy”). If a User cancels a tee time reservation in accordance with the Cancellation Policy, the User will receive a credit to their User Account in the amount of the purchase, less any cancellation fees charged by the golf course and/or GolfLine as stated in the Cancellation Policy. Credits may be applied to any subsequent purchase made using the Services at any golf course during the following 12 months.
A golf course's decision to treat a cancellation differently than GolfLine’s cancellation and refund policy will not be deemed a waiver of our policies. The policies set forth herein are the sole and exclusive policies that govern reservations that you make through GolfLine.
5.5Rain Checks. You must request a rain check from the golf course if you cannot complete a round that you started because the golf course closes due to weather or other issues. GolfLine will not issue a refund or a credit for that round. Rain checks may only be redeemed at the golf course that issued them and cannot be used to make other purchases using the Services.
If a tee time becomes unavailable due to an official closing of the golf course (e.g., for inclement weather or other reasons), we will issue a full refund to your credit card after we confirm with the course that it was closed. Please email us at email@example.com if you need to request a refund because the course was closed.
