I Support Donald Trump…For A Free Round of Golf

7

The Donald has been in the news a lot lately for saying some outrageous, provocative things. Though I don’t agree with many things that he says, I’m not going to go so far as to give up a free round of golf at the Trump National Doral on account of his ignorance.

The year is coming to an end and I still have two free rounds of golf courtesy of the Citi Prestige card. Originally, I was going to speculatively book rounds as reservations are available as far as six months out. Now that I’m going to be in the Orlando and Miami area after the Citrus Bowl I know I can make my tee times.

To my surprise, I was able to book two free rounds of golf. I thought the policy was that one round had to be completed before another was booked. I’m not sure if there was a change in policy but for anyone who has outstanding free rounds left, it’s worth giving a shot.

The two courses I’m playing are the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grand Lakes and the Trump National Doral – Gold Course. If anyone wants to give TPOL a run for his money then send me an email and we can get after it. My classified reads as follows:

Looking for a partner who is extremely wealthy or has a Citi Prestige card. Good hygiene a must.

Why? Well, the Trump course goes for $250 and the Ritz goes for $175. Like flying first class, I booked these courses because they are stupidly expensive but are offered as a free perk for points aficionados. Otherwise, I would be sticking to putt-putt.

  1. What day are you playing at the Trump Doral course? My husband has the Citi Prestige card and has been dying to find someone to play with someone at this course. I do not golf.

  2. So, as long as I book and paid before 12/31, then it’s considered 2015 benefit, even if it’s used in 2016. I wonder if it can be stacked with 2016 benefit for 2 rounds on one vacation.

    • So the travel statement credit is applied based on the statement date. If your statement closed on 12/8 then you can book a flight now and be reimbursed using your 2016 credit.

      The golf has to be based on calendar year because golfswitch.com showed that I had 2 certificates left and I used both of them. I’m assuming come Jan 1st that it will reset to 3 and that I will be able to add another around either immediately or after I play the first two that I booked.

      The only issue I see is that you can’t book (at least online) a round of golf within 72 hours of your tee time.
