VIP Golf owns thousands of green fees at diverse courses across AB and BC. We call this collection of green fees… THE VAULT
When you become a VIP Golf Member, we essentially give you the combination to our vault of green fees and allow you to make as many withdraws as you like. Each withdraw costs you a fee. These fees averages 40 – 60 percent off what the golf course would normally charge for their green fee.
There’s no limit on where or how many times you play at any facility and the best part is, the more you play the more money you end up saving. We only give the combination out to a select amount of members each year, ensuring all of our valued clients have the best access and we can accommodate every member, every day!

If you make a tee time with a golf course and fail to show up without prior notification you may be charged for a regular rate green fee from that golf course as well as a preferred rate green fee from VIP Golf.
