Golf and GambleSM FAQ

 

What are the methods of payment?

May be paid by check (payable to "Genesis Golf Trips"), VISA, MC or AMEX is also accepted. Please provide Card #, Name on Card, Expiration Date and Billing Address for processing. We can even give your group their own web page where each participant can pay on-line with their own credit cards

Is a deposit necessary?

Yes! A $500.00 deposit and signed agreement must be received before your trip date is confirmed.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

If cancellation is received 15 to 30 days prior to arrival, 50% of package price will be refunded. If cancellation is received 8 to 14 days prior to arrival, 25% of package price will be refunded. Cancellations made fewer than 7 days prior to arrival will result in forfeit of 100% of the package price. All cancellations must be received in writing after initial notification by phone. If proper notice is not received, a refund will not be issued.

When is the Final Payment due?

Final payment is due no later than one week prior to your trip or it will be cancelled and your deposit will not be refunded.

What about the Departure Time?

The coach must depart on time. We have assigned tee times at the course and are required to check in 20 or 30 minutes prior to play. Your group is no different than a foursome in that you must make your tee-time or forfeit it. Please understand that this is how all Golf courses operate. They make no exceptions for a group. If we miss our tee-time it will throw off the whole day.

What is the policy on Alcohol?

Because of numerous problems in the past the following will be strictly enforced:

  • Alcohol may be brought by the group but cannot be brought up from the luggage bays on the motor coach until departure from the course.
  • Moderation of no more than 2 drinks per person is allowed on the motor coach.
  • Intoxicated or rowdy persons prior to or at any time during the trip can be refused boarding or removed from the course or the entire trip without refund.
  • Drinking in the parking lot or stuffing golf bags with beer/alcohol is prohibited. Each golf course has a state issued Alcohol Beverage license and this activity puts the license in jeopardy.

Can Novice Golfers participate?

If by chance there are beginner-golfers with the group, they should be paired with an experienced golfer to help them with the rules of the game, course etiquette, speed of play, enjoyment of the day and it will keep the course happy.

What if you are Non-Meat Eater?

Please let Golf Vacations know at least one week prior to the trip. Non-meat eaters can have a choice of pasta or a chicken dish.

Do you need Golf Clubs?

Every player must have their own set of Golf Clubs. There is no sharing. This is course policy to help speed play. If an individual does not have clubs, they can be rented at the course for a nominal charge. Rental clubs should be reserved in advance.

What about the Speed of Play?

You must keep pace with the group in front of you. If your group consists of a large number of beginners, a ‘Scramble’ format should be considered. Please ask us for assistance in setting this up.

What is the Dress Code?

Proper Golf attire is required. Collared Shirts, NO Blue Jeans, NO T-shirts and Shorts must be hemmed.

What happens if it rains?

The golf course makes the call. If they are opened for business, you play. If they are not opened, the trip becomes a ‘Gamble Only" day and a refund for the Golf and Meal will be issued within 5 days. Plus a $10.00 food voucher will be issued upon arrival at Resorts Casino.

Is there anything else a group should know?

Yes! Proper Golf Etiquette and general good behavior is required. Rowdy, raucous or loud individuals or groups not capable of self-control will be removed from the course, motor coach or casino without refund.
