    AG Voucher - Not as good as it used to be.

    Not a thread for posting if you want one or not! (Seen some weary posts)

    Seems AG have cut back on the vouchers - now you have to book 3 days in advance and only mon-fri, also the time limit for booking short to say the least.

    Alright for someone like me who has every Friday off, but what do you do if you're a Monday to Friday 9-5 slave?

    Are AG being tight? Or is it Golf Now? Personally this was the only real reason why I signed up to the AG club thing.

    Re: AG Voucher - Not as good as it used to be.

    The time frame seems similar to previous vouchers but the Monday-Friday restriction is a bit of a shame. Hopefully that will only apply to summer vouchers and not ones given out in winter or spring when it really would make them redundant for me.

    At the end of the day they are a bonus and that is how to look at them.

    Seems fair enough

    If you are lucky enough to have a 9 to 5 job you can afford to pay full green fees on weekends
    2016: Started Playing->23.0
    2017: 22.7->14.4
    2018: 14.4->13.1(Winter cap)

    That makes no sense, why does what shift you work mean you can afford a full green fee or not?

    Re: AG Voucher - Not as good as it used to be.

    I think that whatever the rules or criteria is to use the voucher, the bottom line is you're getting something for free! and after all, it's not like you're deliberately shopping in AG just to receive a voucher, you get them for just being a member so it really is something for nothing.

    I've received a voucher and not set foot in AG for 3-4 months so someone will benefit and will be very pleased to get mine, irrelevant of the different system.

    And as for the new system, what's wrong with booking 3-days in advance and having a time limit of 4 weeks (1 month), you can't have people just turning up at courses expecting to play, 4 weeks to arrange a game Mon-Fri for free and people are moaning, sheesh

    100% agree

    I haven't shopped in AG since my £10 birthday voucher in march.... before that was when I got all new irons and a driver in sept of last year

    Anyways in that time they have sent me these vouchers... I've not be able to use them yet but every time I give it to my friend who plays 2-3 times a week

    This time I actually have the chance to use it

    It's free!! No complaints here

    Agree with the above. I get the code sent to me however haven't shopped there for ages. I tend to end up giving the code away on here etc to someone who will benefit as I usually can't. Given it's free I think any restrictions put on the round are fair enough.

    Re: AG Voucher - Not as good as it used to be.

    The first voucher had no limit so I played a course (Sonning GC) that would have cost me £32 normally. Then they limited to £20 value (still 7 days). Now, it is still £20 value but Mon-Fri only.
    As others have said, it is up to them, but Mon-Fri is a pain for 9-5 bods like myself.
