Can I bring a “Guest” to play with me?
A member can bring up to 3 guests per day to play with them. Guests can play for $5.00 more then what the member pays to play on 18 hole rounds. Some courses now allow 9 hole rounds where members can bring guest for $3.00 more then what the member pays on a 9 hole round. Be sure to inform the Proshop staff when booking tee times that will include guests playing with you.

Why am I not getting emails with rates and specials?
This is a common request because we don’t SPAM our members. Two-Step email verification is required. First you must “SUBSCRIBE” to our site and then you must accept email subscription that comes to your selected email inbox. Again, simply go to https://platinumgolfmembership.com/subscribe-to-news-and-alerts/ , type in the email you want to be notified at and then hit the subscribe button. Once you subscribe, you must accept the subscription that will be sent to the email address you just typed in.
(NOTE: You can also access “SPECIALS” anytime without logging on at: https://platinumgolfmembership.com/specials/ to view current specials.) If your having problems just send an email to: email@example.com for assistance.
What can the Gift Card be used for?
The Platinum Gift Card can be used to pay for select merchandise, golf (green and carts fees) or food and beverage. Courses may limit or restrict gift card purchases on select merchandise and food and beverage.
What are the booking restrictions?
Member rounds may not be booked more than 48 hours in advance. (*NOTE: Several courses now offer 3 to 7 day advanced booking for member that book “ONLINE”.) Click here to view the “BOOK ONLINE” page for online tee times.
Do the rates include Cart Fees?
All courses include any “Golf Cart Fees” in the rates that are quoted. We do not foresee a change in this policy as it has remained this way for years and seems to be appreciated by our members.
How are my rounds tracked?
Every time you play at a participating course, present your membership card for a “point” for that round. Each course tracks the member rounds and they will be listed in your detailed play listing shown on the MEMBER LOGIN page when you log in. Some courses run specials throughout the year for DOUBLE POINTS. After you play 4 rounds at any one course, your FREE ticket will print at the counter. (*Note: Golf courses are not required to give you credit for a round played if you play in a group that was booked in advance of the 48 hour booking restriction or if you paid a rate less then the going Platinum members rate for that course.)
(Example: You get invited to play River Oaks with a group of 20 that has an opening for a tee time they booked 2 month ago. In this case it is up to the course pro if you should get a “Credit” for your round played based on the rate charged and how far in advance it was booked.) The golf pros should give you credit or explain why you wouldn’t get credit at the time of check in.
What if I lost my membership or gift card?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name and member number (if you remember the number) and we can issue you a new card. You can also just present your number when you golf and verify your identity with a drivers license so you don’t miss credit for any rounds. Cards can easily be picked up at the East Coast Golf office located in the Indigo Creek club house at 9480 Indigo Club Drive, Murrells, Inlet SC 29576. You can also call or stop by the office, but an email ahead of time will ensure timely processing of your new membership card.
