Policies & Procedures for Oak Island Accommodations Golf Packages
Guest must prepay requested tee time(s) at the time of the booking, or payment may be sent with first or final payment for the rental property.
- Once paid, the guest will receive a golf voucher for each course booked.
- GUESTS WHO BOOK TEE TIMES AFTER ARRIVAL -- The guest can call OIA or come to the OIA office to make the booking. Payment will be by cash or valid credit card. OIA pledges to try to find the best tee time(s) available at that time requested.
When receiving a booking request, OIA must have the following information from the guest in order to make the golf booking:
- OIA guest's reservation number and property name
- Date and preferred time for requested golf booking (please allow at least 1 Â½- hour range for booking the tee time due to need for flexibility in booking, especially during the busy months).,
- Email address of guest
- Number of players
- Names of guests
Once OIA has received the guest's information and payment about the golf course booking, an OIA Guest Services Representative will contact the golf course with the guest's request, including status as Oak Island Accommodations' guest.
The OIA golf discount will not be honored by the course without the appropriate golf voucher.
Each golf course determines its own course conditions based on frost, drought, rain/lightning, etc. Some golf courses allow players out during the same weather conditions in which other courses will disallow players. If a golfer has any question about whether a course is playable on a given day, he should contact the course directly 2 hours ahead of the scheduled tee time or plan to arrive 2 hours earlier than the scheduled tee time.
If a course is playable, the golfer must play or else forfeit his payment for that course booking.
If a course is not playable, the course will either re-schedule or approve a refund. If a refund is approved, golfer should obtain the rain check in writing and bring it to Oak Island Accommodations' office for a refund, should the guest be unable to use it himself.
If the guest has paid the fee by credit card, OIA will process a refund as soon as possible.
If the guest has paid the fee by cash, OIA will issue a refund check and sent to the address for that reservation account within 10 business days.
Guests should identify junior players when booking tee times.
Rates for juniors are located on the golf sheets and are advantageous to the junior players.
OIA Guest Services will note on the guest's voucher how many juniors will be playing and at what rate. Juniors will pay the golf course directly.
Afternoon or Mid-Week Play
Mornings of weekends are prime golf time. Afternoon and mid-week tee times are often less expensive and are noted on the golf course rate sheet.
If a course does not indicate a discounted rate for an afternoon or mid-week tee time, OIA Guest Services will first advise the guest of the listed rate and offer to call the course directly for a possible afternoon discount. The guest will be notified that if the course does not have afternoon discounts, OIA will still be able to arrange a tee times but at the rate prescribed by the golf course.
Oak Island rates are contracted for 18-hole play ONLY. OIA discounts do not apply to 9-hole play. To play only 9 holes, guests will need to contact the golf course directly.
The Oak Island Accommodations Tee-Time Voucher
The golf voucher is the golfer's ticket to play at that course at the special OIA discounted rate, and payment will have already been made to OIA. IMPORTANT: Guests must take their golf voucher(s) TO the golf course when they go to play. Without the voucher, the course will charge the guest the regular rate to play at that course.
