Don’t Say You Weren’t Warned 1/5
By fed up with GN
Do yourself a favor and try to contact customer support before you signup. Just try it, and you’ll save yourself a lot of frustration not doing business with GolfNow. Here are the proplems I have encountered.
1) Hard to get to someone at customer service, and when you do, you’ll find the rudest, most poorly trained people.
2) Promo codes that don’t work in the app, and customer service? Well, you know!
3) Before their 100% membership price increase this year, you could cancel a round through the app. Now you have to call customer service, and, we’ll, you know!
4) More and more golf courses in my area are refusing to do business with GolfNow and when I ask at my favorite courses why they are no longer on GolfNow, I get the same reply, “GolfNow is greedy and impossible to work with”.
I’m a VIP member and not sure I’ll continue as a VIP as it is losing it favor. I’m finding that with the closing of some courses in my area that those left do not have many hot deals and fewer afternoon hot deals.

Top Notch 5/5
By Justi J.
Never fails me for price and selection. Allows me to play more. Looked at other sites but really why settle for 2nd best!
Great app but wish it would give forewarnings 3/5
I cannot tell you how many times I have booked what looked like a great rate, only to arrive at the course to find I am immediately behind a golf tournament. The slow play ruins the experience. Not the app’s fault but wish they could post warnings just like they do for maintenance of greens.
There is no option to contact someone for a dispute 1/5
My round was canceled due to weather and yet the app still charged me and there is no way to contact a person to get it resolved.
Back to the top! 1/5
Why is it that when I click into a course to view a deal and then back out, I get sent back to the TOP of the screen again? So annoying, the one feature that should be right is wrong.
Hot Deals 5/5
Great experiences using the App
Terrible Customer Service 1/5
By Lack of Creativity
Do not recommend at all. Zero customer service. After correctly inputting the correct future date, the app changed the date to today. After receiving the confirmation with incorrect date, I attempted to contact the golf course who could not assist. Attempted to contact Golf Now...voice prompts advise to cancel via the app but feature was not available on app. Attempted to contact Golf Now again via telephone but to talk to an agent was over one hour wait. Terrible customer service!!!
I discovered GolfNow when I was traveling for work. It has gotten me some great deals all across the country. I frequently play courses close to home for $10-$15 and I’ve never had a problem with anything I’ve booked.
App vs live assistance 5/5
By So Cal SolidOne
I love this app, very simple and has everything needed to locate, book and enjoy Marvelous courses all over. I live in Cali and have booked all over the US with ease. Currently experiencing some Palm Springs courses at great prices. Still love to get my home course, ‘Hidden Valley’ for $12.00 thru GolfNow! Can’t beat It!
To top it off the kind, supportive help you get from their live staff is well worth the yearly fees.
Thanks for making golf affordable!
I paid $100 for the premium service. I save about $10 in fees every time I book and a fortune on green fees.
Mr. bean 5/5
App works great, deals are great.
By Herb Superb
I’ve had the app about 3/4 years now it really is the best way to play golf.
Great for Deals 5/5
By Ashton Mouton
Have been using Golf Now for two years and have been so pleased with the results. I’ve saved a lot of money and enjoyed great golf courses. Have gotten as little as $10.00 by waiting till the day I’m going to play. Also have benefitted from Golf Now discounts. It works!
Easy to use and good deals 5/5
Easy to use. I like being able to read last reviews to see what current conditions the course is in. Wish all courses were on it.
Great app 4/5
Helps get our tee time set without being put on hold or being unable to call.. and being a VIP helps too . Do the math. Add all the service fee and the VIP status comes out the same
Just call the clubhouse 1/5
3 years of golf in Arizona has finally taught me to use this app as little as possible. The amount of tournaments I’ve missed out on since taking up golf, extra I have paid in green fees compared to what they really charge, tee times missed because they are never accurate and usually there is a spot open that isn’t shown here. I’ve never once actually been able to redeem a hot deal and I’ve got more than 10 promo codes saved up.
Rory has been advertising the free round of golf for 2 months now and you just now mention it to me assuming I haven’t been able to play golf or something these last 2 months? Not sure but I’m never paying you or Rory for anything unless I really have to.
By Doug Sy
GolfNow was better 3 years ago. I have booked many tee times through this site and multiple times they have called to cancel the tee time that was made. I have been charged fees for these overbookings and did not take the time to recover the lost money. They for some reason are not synced with various courses resulting in double booking. The App is frustrating and scrolls you to the top every time you go in and out to check different courses and times. I’m not sure the programmers even golf.
No where to complain 2/5
Used a promo code today - allegedly worth ten dollars. In this case it’s only worth $2.49, because you pay at the course. The only money GolfNow charged was the $2.49. It seems to me they should prevent you from wasting a promo code. You should be able to call and get promo code removed for use another day.
I made a mistake and got two identical tee times by mistake. It was before Christmas and l gave a relative a free 60 dollar round. There was no one to call and the undo mistake. There are numbers but nobody answers.4ace.
Best golf app. 5/5
By Majed Las vegas
I have being using GolfNow app for years now and have always found it to be the best golf app.
Going golfing 4/5
Great app to help Play golf at a reasonable rate
App Review 2/5
The screen only stay’s in the vertical mode, seems to me that it should change to horizontal depending on viewer preference? Also when a golf course is selected but not chosen it takes you back to the beginning of the course list instead of letting you continue from where you were?
Love the app 5/5
By Judy & Jayne
I really like this app, especially when I am able to get hot deals!
Great app! 5/5
I have booked well over 1k rounds of golf through here. I love the app and the continuous improvements GN keeps adding.
Great app, great service 4/5
I’ve been a Golf Now Member for over a year. Awesome service. App provides quick and easy search. Booking, changing, cancelling tee times couldn’t be easier. Search is awesome and allows many ways to sort. Only annoyance is after scrolling through a courses’ tee times when you go back it takes you back to beginning of search.
Good app 5/5
Can find good deals here in season and outstanding deals in summers. The $5 fee is worth it because of convenience and you can split fees with other players. You also save a ton of time because you don’t want to be calling and talking to the club house clueless. Booked over a hundred rounds and never had an issue at the course. Be sure to read course reviews before you book.
Best one out there 5/5
Easy to use and efficient
The usual upgrade to a non working app 1/5
I’m a VIP member that can’t log in on a computer because when you hit the login button nothing shows up.
They want you to join more of their sites first.
The app works most of the time but a few courses drop the reservation when go to book the time.
The last time I called GolfNow on the phone, the wait time was an HOUR!!
Use Supreme golf or TeeOff instead. Or just call the course. They will usually give you the tee time and not charge the fee.
GolfNow people- get your act together.
Works on IPhone-not so good on MacBook 3/5
Have much better time using my IPhone to setup reservations. MacBook freezes frequently, especially when applying promo codes. Then you sit wondering if you got the teetime or not, and have call 800 number to straighten out.
3 days prior!!!!!!!!! 1/5
I use to use this app a couple times a week & even thought of becoming a premium member until they changed the reward stipulations!!!! Having to book three days in advance is BS!!!! They don't want you to be able to use the rewards! I'll find another way to book my tee times!!!!! Karma will always come back around on GREED!!
They send me promotion discount codes and the App never accepts the codes 2/5
GolfNow periodically sends me loyalty driven discount codes to use , the only problem is that the App never recognizes the codes or allows me to use them! Then, I can't find anyway to contact customer service to help me understand why the codes are not accepted! (If you go to the website and go to the "contact us" section, it redirects you to a list of FAQ's...with no way to call or chat with a live person! This is the epitome of frustration!
The Best Golf App 5/5
By 71 Blue Devil
Once again this app makes it so easy to book a tee time at affordable rate. Thank you GolfNow. Your the best!!!!!
Save money 5/5
Great app. Saves me tons of money. I am playing a course that is 90$ a round for 15$.
Mobile app 1/5
By mongo 58
When checking courses to play using the mobile app, it is frustrating because after checking a particular course and going back to the main page, it starts you off at the top of the list or the beginning once again. On a desktop computer it’s fine. Only wish they could tweak that aspect of there app!!!!!!
Great money saver when out of town 5/5
If you like to play and not pay full price at great courses where ever are, this is the way to go
Good App — Minor Flaws 5/5
VIP member for two years on Golfnow. Very pleased with its design and ease of use. Have saved many dollars as a retiree with the flexibility to scour my respective domiciles for good deals ( snowbird from New England).
Easy cancellation policies with VIP status a big value when various issues present themselves ( weather, partner cancels, better times, etc)
ONLY complaint is how hard the app makes it to seamlessly bring your rewards over to the reservation you are making....most of the time you have to write the complex code down and then input it versus just having the app populate the field ( it knows and lists your rewards). First world problem I know, but easy fix in my estimation!
Impossible to use rewards 2/5
Don’t ever plan on using your reward coupons. I have about $170 in rewards that is practically impossible to redeem because only 1/100 listings meet the requirements to use it and even on that 1 it still won’t work half the time.
It used to be very easy to redeem rewards but the team at Golf Now has actively tried to make it harder for you and they completely succeeded.
This app is a joke if you do not belong. I paid for a foursome to golf at Sandpiper Golf Course. It rained, thunder, and lightening all night. Continues to rain all morning and the course did not close! They got to keep our foursomes $ and golf now got to keep my fees because the course would not close knowing the course is extremely wet and it is pouring down rain. Absolute RIP OFF! I highly recommend you do not use this service to book and prepay tee times! Contact me if you have questions. I lost $130!!!!! Sharon Dodd’s
Should Be Friendlier 3/5
O When trying to book days in the future, the app does not retain the selected date. Instead, as you move to check another course, that date is reset to current day!
O Applying rewards is cumbersome. Why not a pull down menu at booking with the available rewards.
O App cannot connect to my wifi printer as is possible through the browser.
O Dustin Johnson is great but why does the app open and stay focused so long on him.
The best 5/5
This is without a doubt one of the best app I have right now. No need to buy course membership that you will never utilize. I just log in and play the best courses for half the price. Bravo.
By Robert Trent F
I like the map option. Difficult to use the reward codes since can't find on the app and have to look up on the web. Not happy they changed my membership to golf now and gave a free tee time fee to new members and not the loyal members like me.
Rude people don’t even deserve a star 1/5
I have been a client for years booking almost every weekend with you guys. Using your app all the time. For some reason your app set me up on the wrong day and tried to cancel right away but out of the 24hours. I called in and not only were they rude and stated that that is our money and we can’t refund when I was asking just to put it towards a another booking, they told me I was lying! I can’t believe how awful you treat you customer that were here for years!! There are a lot more apps out there I would be careful moving forward how you treat your customers. Never using you ever again
GolfNow a golfers convenience! 5/5
By J Parp
A golfer is well served by GolfNow. They make tee times, report on golf courses, actually they will serve you electronically or will serve you with knowledge, live assistance. They serve you with rewards just for booking reduced in price tee times that you personally book. If you are a moderate player the rewards can possibly be greater than the annual membership fee. I am a member and the majority of players I partner with on a variety of golf courses are members too.
DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!! Truly A Zero rating 1/5
I’ve been using Golf Now for years. I had to cancel a tee time the same day do to the course having to close their back nine. The rainy weather the days before made it so impossible to play their back nine and for $76 there is no point in playing the front twice. The fact that I got an email for the full tee time reservation is not only outrageous but the nerve of Golf Now to say it’s the course asking to have the fee collected. I called the course and they were very frank with me and accommodating and willing to try and help. There is absolutely no purpose for this app. They have ZERO I mean ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE! If you don’t believe me look for a contact number on the app or website you won’t find one. This is the first time I’ve rated an app and I will continue to rate it with this same message as often as I can so other golfers don’t get screwed by a horribly run company! DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!!
easy and smart 5/5
App very easy to use. Plus, saved about $15 times two. Enough for another round, almost.
Golf know service 5/5
I love the app. The people that you talk to online are very caring and very helpful. I’m a VIP member and think it is well worth what I’m paying. Keep up the good work
Don’t waste your time 1/5
GolfNow charges you in advance for every booking. No refunds unless the course closes. No way to change your reservation without a penalty. You can get the same prices from TeeOff without the hassle.
Beats Calling Around 4/5
Great App for checking availability. I’m not a fan of the fees but life isn’t free. I’ve found that sometimes what’s in GN doesn’t always agree with the course’s ‘book’. I’ve had to be worked in a few times for GN selling times not really open.
