Golf Club Prizes as Membership Card Points

Twin Towns has agreed with the Golf Committee request to commence using the Club Advantage Card points system to replace Golf Club prize vouchers from January 2019.

New Club kiosks will be in operation from November which will allow members to see their points balance and the last 30 days points history.

Golfers can convert any existing voucher(s) to points at their own discretion via the main bar at Club Banora.  This offer might be useful for golfers with high ($40-$50) or low ($5) valued vouchers to make them more flexible to spend.   Conversion of a paper voucher will provide a look at how the transaction history kiosk works.

Member Advantage Card points can be used for food and beverage in the Club as well as paying towards membership renewals and golf cart shed hire.  Points can be converted to an EFTPOS card once accumulated to $50 and used anywhere the card is accepted.

Reminder that Advantage Points expire on 24 December whether gained by spending in the Club or from prizes.
