Do I get a refund for my tee time booking if the golf course is closed due to inclement weather?
Each golf course has its own rain check policies. In the event that you did not get to play due to inclement weather and if the golf club agrees to cancel your booking, you will be given a full refund for your booking. If however a rain check is issued to your by the golf club, you should arrange directly with the golf club to reschedule your game.
