PAYMENT REQUIREMENTS
The excellent golf courses and corresponding hotels in these custom tours are very much in demand, and are booked literally years in advance. Thus, Discount Golf Tours issues payment to the golf courses and hotels immediately upon advisement of availability. This allows confirmation of all aspect of the tour. Once the clients pay initial deposits for tee times arranged and hotel bookings confirmed, these deposits become non-refundable**. The required down payment schedules and subsequent balance of payments to assure participation on the tour will be advised upon confirmation of tour acceptance.

  **Non-refundable charges are those charges that are required to be paid to hotels, golf courses and transportation companies. All companies require non-refundable deposits that must be surrendered upon cancellation of their services. Extraordinary circumstances such as deaths, etc. are not considered by the hotel and golf course operators as refundable candidates. Refunds are only provided if there are cancellations offered by the specific hotels and golf courses due to extreme weather, etc. 

If the operator cancels any trip, all deposits and payments will be refunded in full.  

After the acceptance of the booking, if the customer cancels his arrangements or does not pay the balance per the dates specified, Discount Golf Tours reserves the right to cancel the booking and in such cases, the customers will forfeit all monies paid to that date.
