The Chase Sapphire Reserve and Ritz-Carlton Visa Infinite cards have a little known golf benefit for Troon golf courses nationwide. This Visa Infinite golf benefit is rarely advertised but is a great opportunity for golfers to get exclusive rates and access to both public and private courses throughout the country.
Visa Infinite Golf Benefit
The Visa Infinite golf benefit is offered on both the Chase Sapphire Reserve and Ritz-Carlton cards. A third Visa Infinite cards exists, the Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card, and I would assume that works for this perk as well but as I don’t hold the card I cannot 100% confirm.
The perk is as follows:
- Access to 15+ high end, (mostly) private Troon Privé golf clubs across the country
- Discounts of up to 20% at public Troon courses
- $99 per player per round for up to three guests, along with yourself
- Up to two times per year per course
An example of substantial savings would be in Maui at the The King Kamehameha Golf Club. This club is typically private but occasionally allows the public to play at a rate of $225/person! So not only are you getting a huge discount but you also have access to the course year round.
Another savings example is Tiburón Golf Club, which is one of the public options, and shows rates of $280 per person this weekend vs. $99 with the Visa Infinite golf perk.
Visa Infinite Troon Course Request
To use the benefit first start at the Troon Golf Rewards Visa Infinite site:

For additional questions you can visit the FAQ page
In addition to the $99 rounds at certain courses (which can be a huge discount) you also can join the Troon Rewards program and get at least 10% off at public Troon courses nationwide. You will get automatic Silver status with Troon Rewards, or if you already are Silver or Gold, you will automatically get upgraded a tier. This means up to 20% off tee times, golf schools, and more.
Troon Visa Infinite Golf Perk: Bottom Line
Sadly this is not as lucrative as the now defunct Citi Prestige golf benefit that gave three free rounds per year – often at places that went for hundred of dollars per round. However, this is a great opportunity to access clubs that are otherwise impossible to golf at without knowing a member. It also can provide quite competitive rates for certain courses that are more prestigious and elite than your average golf course.
Definitely check out this little known perk next time you’re headed to play, you may be surprised at how helpful it can be!
