XLife Benefits

Terms and Conditions

Overview

The Associate Clubs International Program (the “ACI Program”) is a reciprocal benefit program in which participating clubs allow members from other participating clubs to access certain dining and golf privileges in exchange for their members likewise being granted such privileges.

As used herein “Participant” means an individual or family holding a membership in good standing at a membership-based club (“Home Club”) that has agreed to offer its members certain benefits at other participating clubs (“Associate Clubs”) through the ACI Program. Associate Clubs are comprised of clubs affiliated with ClubCorp that have chosen to participate in the ACI Program as well as wholly unaffiliated clubs that have entered into an agreement with ClubCorp USA, Inc. d/b/a Associate Clubs International (“ACI”) to participate in the ACI Program. ACI administers all Associate Club benefits, which vary based on Participant’s eligibility and level of benefits. Currently, there are five categories of Associate Club benefits:

  • XLife Dine & Play Away
  • XLife Access Advantage
  • XLife Play Away Advantage
  • XLife Social
  • XLife Stadium

Each category of Associate Club benefits includes the dining and golf privileges defined herein below. Associate Club benefits do not include access to the tennis, athletic, pool or any other facilities or amenities at any Associate Club. Participants are also not eligible to join any member-based golf association away from their Home Club by virtue of participation in Associate Club benefits.

Access to Associate Clubs, away from Participant’s Home Club, is only available through participation in an available category of Associate Club benefits. Members of a Home Club do not have access to Associate Clubs or other clubs within the ClubCorp network by virtue of their Home Club membership.

General Conditions of Participation

Associate Club benefits are subject to these Terms and Conditions, which may be amended or modified by ACI at any time in its sole and absolute discretion without notice to Participants, and to any terms and conditions imposed by Participant’s Home Club. Associate Club benefits may also be amended, modified or discontinued at any time by ACI or by Participant’s Home Club.

By virtue of their participation in Associate Club benefits, Participants do not hold a membership in ACI, ClubCorp or any Associate Club other than Participant’s Home Club. Except as otherwise expressly agreed to by ACI, Participants may not participate in any category of Associate Club benefits more than once regardless of the number of Home Club memberships Participant may hold. In this context, Participant includes any spouse or other person entitled to usage of a Home Club membership titled in the name of another person.

ACI reserves the right to require participation fees or dues from Associate Clubs as a condition of participation. Associate Clubs may in turn charge fees or dues to their members who participate in ACI benefits. In addition to any fees or dues charged to Participant by Participant’s Home Club, ACI charges Participants a nonrefundable enrollment fee, subject to applicable taxes, to participate in Associate Club benefits. Current enrollment fee rates may be obtained at Participant’s Home Club. Enrollment fees may be waived from time to time during open enrollment periods or when elected during the inception of Participant’s Home Club membership, as determined by ACI in its sole and absolute discretion. Participants who removed ACI benefits from their Home Club membership in the previous 12 months may be subject to a waiting period prior to re-enrolling and/or may not be eligible to enroll during an open enrollment period.

The amount of any fees or dues charged by ACI is subject to increase in the sole and absolute discretion of ACI. By participating in Associate Club benefits, Participants agree to pay all fees and dues charged by their respective Home Clubs or directly by ACI.

ACI also reserves the right to restrict the participation in certain categories of benefits to only those members who pay a minimum amount of base monthly dues to their Home Club or who hold a minimum level of membership, both as determined by ACI in its sole and absolute discretion.

Certain Associate Club benefits, as described more fully herein below, cannot be accessed within Participant’s Home Club market or in markets in which Participant maintains any place(s) of business or residence (the “Restricted Markets”), all as determined by ACI in its sole and absolute discretion. Accordingly, ACI may, in its sole and absolute discretion, restrict Associate Club benefits in certain areas, including but not limited to, areas where Participant may have a business presence or may own or maintain vacation properties, second homes, rental properties, other properties that can or may be used as dwellings, or extended stays within a market.  Proof of place(s) of business or residence may also be required.

Participant agrees to abide by the rules and regulations of the Associate Club that Participant is visiting and is responsible for the conduct of any accompanying guests. Associate Clubs reserve the right to refuse access to any Participant who it deems to have violated any of their respective rules and regulations or other codes of conduct, or these Terms and Conditions. ACI also reserves the right to suspend or terminate participation in all Associate Club benefits by any Participant for any reason or for no reason.

Associate Club benefits are non-transferable, and may not be offered, assigned or in any way transferred to any other person.
Associate Clubs are subject to change without notice, and there is no guarantee that a specified number of Associate Clubs or that a specific Associate Club will always participate in offering Associate Club benefits through the ACI Program. Associate Clubs may restrict participation to specific categories of Associate Club benefits, so not all categories of Associate Club benefits will be offered at all Associate Clubs. The current roster of Associate Clubs may be found online at ClubCorpNetwork.com, in the ClubLife mobile app or in the latest digital edition of Private Clubs Magazine.All Participants must present a government-issued photo ID to gain access to Associate Clubs, and reservations must be made for all Associate Club access in advance through the ClubLife mobile app or through the ClubLine. At most Associate Clubs, two tee times are set aside daily for use by Participants accessing Associate Club benefits, and Associate Clubs reserve the right to limit or restrict tee times. All tee times are provided on a space-available basis only, first come, first serve, and space is limited. Except as otherwise expressly stated herein, Participants are responsible for payment of charges incurred through usage of their Associate Club benefits, including any applicable sales taxes, service charges or other fees which may apply.

Except as expressly stated herein, Associate Club benefits are not available as part of a Group Booking. As used herein, “Group Booking” refers to two or more tee times at a single Associate Club on the same date or any dinner reservation that requires service for more guests that can be accommodated by a standard 10-top table.

Conditions of Participation – Legacy Benefits

Members in good standing at their Home Club will be afforded Associate Club Program privileges based on the level of their Associate Club benefits. There are currently five categories of benefits: (i) Signature Gold; (ii) Associate Gold; (iii) Associate Plus; (iv) Associate Silver; and (v) Associate Bronze. Benefits are administered by ACI. Participants at each level will receive an Associate Club membership card appropriate for their benefit level. All participants must present their Associate Club membership card and picture identification to gain access to Associate Clubs. All Associate Club privileges, benefits and fees are subject to change from time to time and may vary from club to club and from resort to resort. 

ACI reserves the right to charge participation fees and/or monthly dues to individual participating Associate Clubs in exchange for permitting the Associate Clubs to offer Associate Club benefits to their members. Associate Clubs may in turn charge fees or dues to those members who elect to participate, as determined in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. ACI also reserves the right to restrict the participation in certain categories of benefits to only those members of the Home Club who pay a required minimum “base dues” for their Home Club level of membership or to only those members who hold a certain minimum type or category of membership in their Home Club as determined by ACI. In addition to these requirements, ACI may require additional monthly dues for certain benefit levels. The amount of any fees or dues charged are subject to increase from time to time, in the sole discretion of ACI. By participating in the Associate Club benefits, Club members agree to pay all fees and or dues charged by their respective Home Clubs. For purposes of this Agreement, a "Home Club" is the Associate Club at which a Club member's membership is located. Participants may  participate in Associate Club Program benefits at their applicable level, but do not hold “memberships” in ACI or any of the Participating Clubs other than the participant’s Home Club. Participants may not, therefore, participate in the Associate Club Program in multiple levels that would increase any of the maximum tee times, meals, or other benefits described in the applicable categories of participation set forth below. A person or entity cannot participate in the Associate Club Program, at any benefit level, more than once, regardless of the number of Home Club memberships such person or entity may own, and/or regardless of the number of different Home Clubs to which a person or entity may belong. In this context, a “person” includes any spouse or other person entitled to usage of a Home Club membership titled in the name of another person.

The Associate Club benefit provides participating members with social privileges on a space available basis at participating Associate Clubs which are outside the non-resident radius of the participating member’s Home Club and at Clubs in which the participating member’s place(s) of residence and business fall outside those Clubs’ radius restrictions. Certain types of Associate Club benefits provide privileges only when traveling outside of the market where a participant’s primary residence and/or business is located (i.e., Signature Gold Unlimited benefits as described below herein). Non-resident members at participating Associate Clubs shall not be eligible to participate in Associate Club benefits, unless otherwise approved by the member’s Home Club and ACI. Non-resident status shall be determined not only by membership category and classification, but also by the member’s geographical residential and/or business location in relation to member’s Home Club.  ACI retains the right, in its sole discretion, to determine whether a participating member is maintaining a “residence” at a particular location or locations. The intent of the Associate Club Program is to allow participating members to participate in benefits while traveling away from home. To enforce this intent, ACI may in its discretion restrict the use of program benefits by participating members in certain areas, including but not limited to areas where they own or maintain vacation properties, second homes, rental properties, other properties that can or may be used as dwellings, or extended stays within a market. ACI’s determination as to whether a participating member is maintaining a “residence” in a location or locations will be consistent with this intent.

Social privileges generally include access to dining privileges, but do not include access to golf, tennis or athletic facilities. Each participating member agrees to abide by the rules and regulations of the Associate Club he or she is visiting. Each Associate Club reserves the right to refuse access to any participant that it deems to have violated or be in violation of any of its rules and regulations or other codes of conduct. Associate Club benefits are nontransferable, and may not be offered, assigned or in any way transferred to any other person.

For Associate Club benefit levels which include access to golf, tennis, athletic facilities and/or complimentary dining, participants are afforded privileges in Clubs as listed in the Associate Club roster as it appears in the most current issue of Private Clubs magazine. Clubs are subject to change without notice. Participating Associate Clubs may be added or removed from time to time. There is no guarantee that a specified number of Clubs or that specific Clubs will always participate in the Associate Club Program. A current issue of Private Clubs magazine may be obtained through the ClubLine at 800-433-5079, or via the Internet at ClubLine.com.

Associate Club benefit participants must make tee time reservations, court reservations, dining reservations and any other necessary arrangements in advance through the ClubLine to ensure availability and receive appropriate privileges. At most Associate Clubs, two tee times are set aside daily for Associate Club benefit participants. Participating Associate Clubs reserve the right to limit or restrict tee times. ACI makes no guarantees or representations regarding the availability of tee times. All tee times are provided on a space available basis only, first come, first serve. Except as otherwise noted herein, all Associate Club benefit participants are responsible for payment of charges incurred through usage of their Associate Club benefits, including any applicable sales taxes or other surcharges which may apply. Associate Club benefits, including complimentary golf and complimentary dining, are not available as part of a Group Booking. ACI may determine in its discretion whether a request constitutes a “Group Booking,” but at a minimum a “Group Booking” is defined as any single ClubLine booking which requires two or more tee times at one Associate Club on the same date, or any dinner reservation that requires service for more guests than can be accommodated by a standard “ten-top” table.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, participants in certain benefit categories may be  utilize privileges as part of a Group booking, as set forth herein below.

In the event of any claim, dispute or cause of action of any kind arising under or in any way relating to these terms and conditions, or to the participation of any member in any Associate Club Program, the amount of damages suffered by any participating member shall be limited to an amount equal to the amount of dues paid by that member for his or her Associate Club level of benefit, if any, during the 12 months immediately preceding the events giving rise to the cause, claim or dispute. All parties to this Agreement agree that damages suffered by an individual participating member under these terms and conditions would be difficult to ascertain with any certainty, and further agree that the above statement of liquidated damages represents a fair resolution of any claims, disputes or causes of action that a participating member may have now or in the future.

Signature Gold Benefit
There are three categories of participation in the Signature Gold benefit: (a) Signature Gold Golf, (b) Signature Gold Dining, and (c) Signature Gold Unlimited. Participation in each category requires an upgrade to the Signature Gold level, and each of the Signature Gold categories are unavailable to persons with Associate Gold (including persons designated as “Founding” Associate Gold), Associate Plus, Silver or Bronze benefits, who have not upgraded to the Signature Gold level.

Signature Gold Golf
In addition to the social privileges described above, the Signature Gold Golf benefit provides participants with golf, tennis, and athletic privileges on a space available basis at participating Associate Clubs and selected golf courses located at participating Associate Clubs ("Signature Gold Golf Clubs"). The participating Associate Clubs and Signature Gold Golf Clubs are noted in the roster which can be obtained as described above. Privileges include two rounds of golf per membership, per month, per participating Associate Club and/or Signature Gold Golf Club, at no greens fees. These two rounds per membership may be used by either the Signature Gold Golf participant, or the participant’s spouse, in any combination. All rounds reserved by Signature Gold Golf participants may be reserved up to fourteen (14) days in advance. Prior to September 1, 2003, a Signature Gold participant may enroll his or her spouse in the benefit by paying additional monthly dues, as determined by ACI; a participating spouse enrolling prior to September 1, 2003 will also be eligible to play two rounds of golf, per month, per participating Associate Club and/or Signature Gold Golf Club, at no greens fees. Neither the Signature Gold Golf individual participant nor participating spouse may personally exceed two rounds per month, per participating Associate Club or Signature Gold Golf Club. If a Signature Gold participant or a participating spouse exceed two rounds per Associate Club and/or Signature Gold Golf Club per month, each additional round will require the payment of a greens fee or other fee as determined by the participating Associate Club and/or Signature Gold Golf Club. Certain selected domestic owned Associate Clubs and/or Signature Gold Golf Clubs participating in the rental club program, shall provide, on an available basis, a set of golf clubs for use by Signature Gold Members, at the $25 preferred rate due at time of service. Such preferred rate for rental clubs is subject to change from time to time at the discretion of Associate Clubs International and participating clubs. Signature Gold Members may also be subject to additional fees to access participating club facilities.

Signature Gold Golf participants may convert to Signature Gold Dining privileges for a conversion fee of one-thousand dollars ($1000.00). Upon conversion to Signature Gold Dining, all Signature Gold Golf privileges will be terminated.

Members previously designated as Founding Associate Gold participants (see Associate Gold benefit, below) who elected to participate in the Signature Gold Golf benefit prior to July 1, 2001, were re-designated as Founding Signature Gold Golf participants. Upgrade fees may have been waived for Founding Signature Gold Golf participants, and Founding Signature Gold Golf participants' monthly dues will not increase above twenty dollars ($20.00) for the period in which the member participates in the Signature Gold Golf benefit. In the event that a Founding Signature Gold participant elected to enroll his or her spouse in the benefit, prior to July 1, 2001, the additional dues charged for the Founding Signature Gold participant's spouse will not be subject to increase; in the event a Founding Signature Gold participant elected to enroll his or her spouse after July 1, 2001, the spouse will be subject to increases in dues from time to time, as determined in the sole discretion of ACI. Should the Founding Signature Gold Golf participant wish to convert to Signature Gold Dining, he or she will be subject to the monthly dues currently in effect for the Signature Gold Dining benefit at the time of conversion, even if such dues are greater than $20.00 per month; provided however that such participant shall not be subject to any future increases in Signature Gold Dining monthly dues which may occur following his or her conversion. Should the Founding Signature Gold Golf participant wish to convert to Signature Gold Unlimited, his or her monthly dues for the Signature Gold Golf component will not increase above twenty dollars ($20.00), and his or her monthly dues for the Signature Gold Dining component shall be the amount of required monthly dues in effect for the Signature Gold Dining benefit at the time of conversion; provided however that such participant shall not be subject to any future increases in the amount of monthly dues for the Signature Gold Dining component which may occur following the conversion.

Signature Gold Dining
In addition to the social privileges described above, the Signature Gold Dining benefit provides participants with complimentary dining privileges on a space available basis at participating business and sports clubs (“Signature Gold Dining Clubs”). Signature Gold Golf Clubs do not participate in the Signature Gold Dining benefit. The participating Signature Gold Dining Clubs are noted in the roster which can be obtained as described above. Privileges include two complimentary meals per membership, per month, per participating Signature Gold Dining Club. Each complimentary meal includes one item per course, which includes appetizer, soup or salad, entrée, dessert, regular coffee, tea or soft drink. Alcohol, guest’s charges, tax and gratuity and/or service charge are not included. The two complimentary meals per membership per month  may be used by the participant, the participant’s spouse, or by the participant and spouse in any combination. If the two complimentary meals per membership per Signature Gold Dining Club per month are exceeded, each additional meal will require the payment of regular charges as determined by the participating Signature Gold Dining Club. Signature Gold Dining participants will be responsible for payment of any additional fees incurred for tennis or athletic privileges; Signature Gold Dining participants will have no access to golf benefits at any Associate Clubs. Complimentary dining does not apply to groups, private parties, or special events. Complimentary meals apply only at participating Signature Gold Dining Clubs and may not include certain resort properties.

Participants who elect the Signature Gold Dining benefit level will also be subject to a nonrefundable upgrade fee in the then applicable amount established by ACI, plus any applicable sales tax. The amount of any upgrade fee charged is subject to change. ACI reserves the right to waive any applicable upgrade fees, in its discretion.

Signature Gold Unlimited/My World/Travel
Participants who elect the Signature Gold Unlimited benefit level (also referred to My World or Travel benefits in some markets) may enjoy all of the benefits of both Signature Gold Golf and Signature Gold Dining, and are further subject to all restrictions and obligations which apply to Signature Gold Golf and Signature Gold Dining. A participant who elects the Signature Gold Unlimited benefit level participates simultaneously in both the Signature Gold Golf benefit level and the Signature Gold Dining benefit level, under all of the Terms and Conditions set forth above for each benefit and for the Associate Club Program generally.

Additionally, members who participate in the Signature Gold Unlimited benefit may enjoy  the following privileges not available under the Signature Gold Golf or Signature Gold Dining benefits:

(a) Signature Gold Unlimited participants may be able to utilize privileges on a space available basis at participating Associate Clubs which are located within ACI’s imposed radius restrictions from the participants’ place(s) of residence, which would otherwise be restricted from usage under other Associate Club benefit levels (“Restricted Clubs”) in the event such participant has a second residence or business, other than the participant’s primary residence and/or business, appropriately located in the area. The usage of Restricted Clubs by members with Signature Gold Unlimited benefits is limited to two (2) total cumulative rounds and two (2) total cumulative meals per month at participating Associate Clubs located in the market in which the residence is located. So, for example, if a particular market contains three participating Associate Clubs, a Signature Gold Unlimited participant may enjoy a maximum total of up to two complimentary rounds and two complimentary meals in a thirty day period, spread amongst the three participating Associate Clubs. Rounds and meals may be allocated among participating clubs as determined by the participating Member, subject to space availability. So, for example, a participating Member could use one round at a certain club located within the market, the second round at a second club within the market, and both meals at a third club located within the market. Or, for example, both rounds could be used at one club within the market and both meals could be used at the second club—but then no other clubs in that market could be used during that thirty day period. The ability of the participant to allocate rounds and meals among clubs within a market may be limited somewhat by the type of clubs within the market. For instance, if the market contains only one business club which participates in Signature Gold Dining, then both meals would have to be at that club, since the country clubs in that market will not offer complimentary dining benefits. For purposes of this paragraph, a “market” is intended to refer to a distinct geographical area which may contain one or more participating Associate Clubs. ACI will define the term “market” in its sole discretion. 

Note: Signature Gold Unlimited participants may NOT under any circumstances utilize program benefits at Associate Clubs located within the radius restrictions of their primary residences, Home Clubs or businesses. For purposes of this paragraph, ACI shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether a participant’s residence is his or her “primary” residence. This determination will be made on a reasonable basis consistent with the intent of the Associate Club Program that benefits are intended to be utilized by participants who are traveling away from home. 

(b) Signature Gold Unlimited participants may utilize their golf privileges as part of a Group Booking for golf outings, provided that such Group Booking requires two or fewer tee times at one Associate Club on the same date. Such Group Bookings, when reserved by Signature Gold Unlimited Participants, are referred to as “back to back” bookings. Although Signature Gold Unlimited participants may utilize their benefits to enjoy complimentary tee times in such back to back bookings, members who participate in any other category of Associate Club benefits who are part of the same back to back booking may not utilize their complimentary golf benefits in connection with the back to back booking. So, for example, a Signature Gold Unlimited participant may reserve a back to back booking which includes two foursomes; if, of the eight players in the group, two are Signature Gold Unlimited participants, four are Signature Gold Golf participants, and two are Associate Gold participants, all eight golfers may participate in the group, but ONLY the Signature Gold Unlimited participants may use complimentary tee times for the back to back booking.

(c) Rounds reserved by Signature Gold Unlimited participants may be reserved up to thirty (30) days in advance, subject to space availability; provided however, that at most participating Associate Clubs, two tee times are set aside daily that can be reserved no more than fourteen (14) days in advance. Only those tee times set aside by participating Associate Clubs in addition to two tee times per day, if any, may be reserved by Signature Gold Unlimited participants up to thirty (30) days in advance.

(d) Signature Gold Unlimited participants may provide friends, family or associates with unaccompanied guest passes to be used in any participating business or athletic Associate Club, up to two (2) passes per club per month. Persons using the unaccompanied guest passes are responsible for making payment for all goods and services purchased at the participating clubs, and for conducting themselves in accordance with the Bylaws of the participating club visited. The Signature Gold Unlimited participant shall be responsible for the conduct of said persons and will make payment of any unpaid charges made by said persons. The use of unaccompanied guest passes is subject to space availability and to restrictions at each such Associate Club regarding the total number of guest passes which may be accepted during a given period.

(e) ACI reserves the right to create additional privileges, rights, benefits and programs to be made available only to Signature Gold Unlimited participants from time to time, in its discretion.

Participants who elect the Signature Gold Unlimited benefit level will also be subject to a nonrefundable upgrade fee in the then applicable amount established by ACI, plus any applicable sales tax, in addition to the upgrade fee required to participate at either the Signature Gold Golf or Signature Gold Dining benefit level. Participants who have previously paid an upgrade fee to participate only at the Signature Gold Golf or Signature Gold Dining benefit levels will be given credit for such upgrade fees already paid, towards the Signature Gold Unlimited fee. The amount of any upgrade fee charged is subject to change. ACI reserves the right to waive any applicable upgrade fees, in its discretion. 
  
Associate Gold Benefit
In addition to the social privileges described above, the Associate Gold benefit provides participants who with golf, tennis and athletic privileges on a space available basis at participating Associate Clubs. The participating Associate Clubs are noted in the roster which can be obtained as described above. Privileges include two rounds of golf, per month, per participating Associate Club, at no greens fees. Each additional round will require the payment of a greens fee or other fee as determined by the participating Associate Club. Associate Gold participants will be responsible for payment of any additional fees incurred for golf, tennis or athletic privileges, other than greens fees, including but not limited to all Network cart fees. All rounds reserved by Associate Gold participants may be reserved up to fourteen (14) days in advance. Waiver of greens fees applies only at participating Associate Clubs and may not include certain resort properties.

Members who elected to participate in the Associate Gold Benefit prior to July 31, 1999, are designated as Founding Associate Gold participants, and the upgrade fee may have been waived for these members. Also, Founding Associate Gold participants' dues will not increase above ten dollars ($10.00) for the period in which they maintain their Associate Gold benefit. Members who elected to participate in the Associate Gold benefit after July 31, 1999, may be subject to periodic increases in dues. Founding Associate Gold participants who wish to obtain Signature Gold Dining or Signature Gold Unlimited privileges are subject to payment of all required upgrade fees and all required monthly dues for such benefits which may be in effect at the time such benefits are elected, even if the required monthly dues are greater than $10.00; provided however, the Founding Associate Gold participant would not then be subject to any future dues increases for the category of Signature Gold benefit that he or she has elected. The amount of any upgrade fee charged is subject to change. No member may upgrade to or enroll in the Associate Gold benefit after March 31, 2001. 
  
Associate Plus
In addition to the social privileges described above, the Associate Plus Benefit provides participants with golf, athletic and tennis privileges on a space available basis at participating Associate Clubs. The participating Associate Clubs are noted in the roster which can be obtained as described above. Privileges include access to a maximum of two rounds of golf, per month, per participating Associate Club, at payment of fifty percent (50%) of the then current greens fees ordinarily charged by the participating Associate Club.
