The most overlooked benefit of the Citi Prestige card is the 3 free rounds of golf that is offered per calendar year. I made a mistake during my Hyatt Diamond Challenge by not booking TPC Stadium Course in Scottsdale three days in advance so I thought that I would forfeit two free rounds of golf. I did book the Legends Course in Carlsbad, California which goes for $150, money better spent somewhere else.
I won’t be anywhere warm until 2016 but was happy to find that rounds of golf can be booked six months in advance.
This is great news because I will be in Orlando in January to see Michigan take on the Gators in the Citrus Bowl and may make use of one of my rounds then.
From there, I may be off to Phoenix to take care of unfinished business at TPC.
The benefit of booking rounds in advance also helps in the event I choose to cancel this card. This may be hard to do with all its benefits but it’s good to know nonetheless.
I love golf. I hate the cold.
Note: You can only book one round of golf at a time.
