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.
