How it Works

2020 Golden Passbook Thank You

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our physical office location has been closed, however we have stayed open for business, selling and shipping 2020 Golden Passbooks.

In fact, due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are offering our Passbook purchasers a unique, one time offer. Because you have been loyal customers of the Golden Passbook, if you have purchased or will purchase a 2020 Golden Passbook complete set or any individual section at the full price you will receive a 10% discount off the full price purchase of a 2021 Golden Passbook or any individual section. The 10% discount will also help to offset any minimal single rider fees a course might request to keep you safe and protected during the 2020 golf season. Please honor any course’s fee request as a thank you for their donation of golf rounds for the Golden Passbook customers and keeping us protected.

This offer is in appreciation of your support during this pandemic. Call the MGCA office (800-860-8575) or purchase online at  Hurry and buy your Golden Passbook today and enjoy savings for the 2021 season!

 Thanks again.

First, purchase one of our Golden Passbook regions or purchase all 3 regions for the best value. Remember, your purchase supports the Michigan Golf Course Association efforts to continue its environmental and legislative advocacy efforts at state and local levels, keeping golf affordable and accessible for all Michigan golfers. We are a non-profit organization - all rounds have been donated for the Golden Passbooks by participating courses.   

Next, call a participating golf course and reserve your tee time - mention you are using your Golden Passbook.

Then, bring the Golden Passbook or Coupon to the course and present it at check-in, and enjoy FREE golf. There is a minimal cart or service fee charged at most courses although some rounds have NO fee's, just tee it up. For a complete list of rules regarding using your Golden Passbook see below.


NEW FOR 2020

The Golden Passbook coupons are perforated for individual play. Each page will contain two coupons. If the course is donating two rounds of golf, it will appear as two separate, one-player coupons. This adds more value to the Golden Passbook.  Now you and a friend can EACH purchase a Golden Passbook and play every course twice or in some cases four times.

For the low price of $450, the Golden Passbook has absolutely FREE green's fee coupons, adding to the overall value of the 2020 Golden Passbook. With spectacular courses to choose from and minimal restrictions, most being Monday through Thursday anytime and Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Holidays after 2:00, this is the best deal for golf in the state of Michigan.

2020 Golden Passbook Rules & Conditions

 When calling the golf course to make your tee time, be sure to tell them you would like to use your Golden Passbook as the rounds are based on availability. The golf course may set a limit on how many Golden Passbooks it will allow on a given day.

  1. Groups of more than 8 require pre-approval from the golf course to play. They reserve the right to schedule your tee time at one of their least busy times of the day.
  2. Present the Golden Passbook to the golf property’s staff who will complete the passbook's page and remove it from your book. Golden Passbook coupons may or may not be honored if they have been removed from the book.  This is at the discretion of the golf course.
  3. The Golden Passbook to Michigan Golf may not be used for tournaments, league play, group outings or in conjunction with other special offers or discounts.
  4. Follow the rules of the course such as credit card policy, cancellations, dress code, etc.
  5. In most instances, The Golden Passbook requires the purchase of a cart.
  6. Please thank the golf course representative for their participation in the Golden Passbook as each golf course donates these rounds of golf to the MGCA so we can give you this great cost savings product.
  7. Please try to make a golf shop purchase or have lunch or dinner at the participating golf course. This always helps the golf course owner justify his/her donation and will help to keep them participating each year.

The Golden Passbook coupons expire on December 31, 2020.
