These terms and conditions are a contract between Amateur Golf Tour Limited, a company registered in England & Wales Registered Company Number 08713147 branded as Mizuno Golf Pairs Tour and hereafter known as MGPT, We or Us. and You, the Booker.

Amateur Golf Tour Limited owns the Mizuno Golf Pairs Tour brand and runs various golf related services primarily in the UK but also outside.

General

These Terms and Conditions sit alongside our Privacy Policy which you can find HERE

Typically these terms relate to the following three categories of bookings

Events – refer to events created and run by MGPT where you pay MGPT to play golf on a specific date at a fixed venue which we book on your behalf for that purpose.

Tours – refer to tours created and run by MGPT but booked, contracted and paid through our travel agent partner such as Golfbreaks Limited.

Matchplay – refers to our Matchplay series where we run seasonal competitions and pair you up against other golfers where you arrange the dates yourselves.  We provide the structure and prizes and you arrange the golf yourself.

Events

Booking an Event

All bookings and prices apply per person. 

Bookings can be made by applying on our website https://golfpairs.com/ or by calling +441386291000

Once you have booked, you must complete payment and we will confirm your place in the event subject to availability.  If we have 2 applications and only 1 space remaining, the priority will be given to the person who has paid first.

Payment options include direct bank transfer, apple pay, chrome pay, paypal and credit/debit card.

If using direct bank transfer, please use your order number as payment reference.

You can send us a deposit of 10% of the total of your booking if you select the bank transfer option to reserve you place.  Payment in full is due 8 weeks before the event.

Once you have paid, we use these funds primarily to pay the golf clubs but also to run our business in general.  By signing up for an MGPT event, you give us permission to make these payments on your behalf, and you are aware that the service in relation to the green fees is not being provided by MGPT but directly by the golf club.

In addition to green fees, MGPT charges an event fee for things like goody bags, prizes, live scoring, staff and expenses, along with company overheads.

The green fee plus the event fees add up to the total which you have paid for the event.

The RRP for an event is equal to the green fee typically charged by the club, plus the RRP of our goody bags, plus our event fee.

The amount you agree to pay when you book is the amount you pay.  We will not ask you to pay more if prices go up, and we will not provide any refunds or vouchers for you if prices go down.  We have no low price guarantee in place.

An administrative charge of £20.00 per order will be levied for any changes you make after your confirmation has been issued.  This is due to the amount of administration work we incur when order change, including additional accountancy fees.

Golfer details and handicap changes will be free of charge and made in the live scoring system.

Cancellation Policy

Since we incur costs and pay golf clubs on your behalf in advance, we need to ensure that we are protected from people cancelling once booked in.  We don’t want to introduce punitive costs so the following is designed to be a balance between ensuring we are protected, and being fair to our customers. 

Cancellation charges are based on the total cost paid by the booker.

Dates are taken from the first day of the event.

Cancel a booking by contacting info@golfpairs.com

Cancelling Date:

More than 90 days prior to an event starting – Full refund minus £20 admin charge.

61-90 days before the event – 75% refund

31-60 Days — 50% refund

30 Days or Less — 0% refund

Changing a Booking

Changes to events you have booked can be made up to 60 days before an event.

We don’t have any flexibility once we have booked you into a golf club to “transfer” fees across from one club to another, so once we have committed on your behalf, the commitment stands. 

However we can offer more flexibility with regard to changes.

Changing Date:

60 days prior to an event starting – Full value transfers

31-60 Days — 50% of the value transfers

30 Days or Less — 0% but contact info@golfpairs.com because depending on availability at certain events at certain times of year we may be able to accommodate 50% transfer fees.

Preparing for the Event

We will contact you approximately a month before the event to start gathering golfer details.

Your details will be entered into our live scoring system which will be used for allocating tee times as well as live scoring on the day and displaying results at the end.

We will make every effort to fulfil the event as advertised.  In the unlikely event that we have to make changes to the event itinerary we reserve the right to do so at any time without notice.

However, we will as a matter of good customer service endeavour to advise you of any changes at the earliest opportunity, making any appropriate or necessary adjustments or credits should we have to make changes for reasons outside our control.

Tee Times:  When you book you are entitled to request a tee time preference.  This is a preference and not a guaranteed tee time. We do our best to accommodate any tee time preferences but tees are drawn and may not match your request.  Please bear in mind when booking that you could be given a tee time up to 4 hours outside your requested time, and work this accordingly. MGPT is in no way responsible for the tee time allocation.

Dress Code:  Many golf clubs and resort courses insist on the proper attire being worn.  We will provide details in our welcome pack of the dress codes at the courses we have booked. If in any doubt, please check the relevant website for the golf clubs in question. 

At the Event

Prizes and goodies where advertised are completely discretionary, and cash alternatives are not available.

We reserve the right to adjust the advertised prize values for low attended events – prizes are provided at our discretion.

If prizes are presented on the day, MGPT are not liable for any postage costs incurred if you choose not to wait until prize giving to receive any prize you may be awarded.

The approximate value of prizes and goodies advertised are based upon the Manufacturers Retail Price of the items as opposed to any other discounted prices available online.

If we run 2s pots at any events, prizes are distributed as vouchers.

Handicap Certificates:  Many golf clubs and courses insist on players having a handicap certificate.  You are permitted to take part in our events without a formal handicap, but each event has 2 competitions – 1 for CONGU handicaps and 1 for Golfshake Handicaps.  Both members of a pair must compete in the same competition. You will be asked to choose which on registration.

Tours

Booking Tours

Tours are booked on our website at https://golfpairs.com/tours and paid via the travel agent, Golfbreaks.  The process on how to do this can be found on the Golfbreaks portal normally by credit/debit card.

Golfbreaks is the agent and you are their customer.  We act as a supplier of the golf event services and will run the golf tournament.

Cancelling Tours

Any cancellations are subject to Golfbreaks terms of business for the tour in question.

Typically deposits are non refundable on payment, and payment in full is due 8 weeks in advance which at that point is non refundable.

In the event of a tour being cancelled we will work with Golf Breaks to deal with the situation in the most efficient way possible.

Matchplay

Booking Matchplay

Bookings can be made by applying on our website https://golfpairs.com/matchplay or by calling +441386291000

Once you have booked, you must complete payment and we will confirm your place in the matchplay series.

Payment options include direct bank transfer, apple pay, chrome pay, paypal and credit/debit card.

Once you have booked we will send a registration form, and once you have registered you will be entered into a regional draw.

You arrange your own matches and submit scores via the link provided – the winner of the matches wins a prize which is a free pair on one of our events.

Prize availability is based on availability at time of winning.  We don’t guarantee any availability at a particular event. If you can’t make an event your prize will be valid for 12 months from winning so you have plenty time to get something booked.

Cancelling Matchplay

Matchplay due to the admin fees involved has no right of refund.  We will not cancel a matchplay event.

We reserve the right to unilaterally adjust matchplay timings to account for any potential course closures.

General

Circumstances outside our Control

For circumstances which are outside of our control such as golf course unavailability through war, strikes or labour disputes, outbreak of disease, golf club bankruptcy, course closure through acts of nature, civil unrest, local acts of terrorism, or any other unforeseen event which make the event commercially impracticable, impracticable to perform, illegal, or impossible to fully perform under this Agreement as the Parties originally contracted.  In such cases the we may terminate this Agreement, without liability, in writing to the email you provided upon booking.

We will endeavour to work with you in this case to provide alternative arrangements or credits for future events but this is not guaranteed.

Matchplay – we will extend timescales and honour bookings in the event that golf clubs are closed.

Tours – we operate through Golfbreaks and will be subject to their booking terms.

In the event that a golf course is deemed by the golf club unplayable on the day, we will endeavour to provide full credit to all competitors to return on the rearranged date.  If we are not refunded, we will ensure that every competitor receives a voucher to play the course on a more suitable date.

Branded Merchandise

None of the branded merchandise items on our page are manufactured by MGPT.  We are resellers and as such cannot be responsible for any defects or other problems with any garments. If you do spot anything wrong, please contact us at info@golfpairs.com and we will work with the manufacturer to resolve your issues. MGPT holds no stock.  Our lead time is 5-7 working days because we place orders with our supplier when you place an order with us. If items are delayed or not available we will inform and refund you as soon as possible.

Communications

Mizuno Corporation and the Golf Pairs Tour will contact customers who are playing in our events from time to time with offers and deals which are relevant.  We share the email address you provided when you registered with our partners GD Score Limited for the exclusive reason of sending you tee time and other information related to the event.  They do not hold your information and are acting as our agents in sending the details. If you do not want us to send details to GD Score Limited then please inform us. You wil miss out on communications related to the event but everything is held online in any event.

We will not share your details with any other partners.

We confirm your details at registration for the events, which is your opportunity to refuse this permission.
