ARCIS ACCESS TERMS & CONDITIONS
Arcis Access (the “Program”) is a reciprocal membership benefit upgrade program providing participating Arcis Golf (“AG”) golf members in good standing at their respective home clubs with various benefits, including, but not limited to, access to an established network of affiliated country and golf clubs in destinations around the world (the “PLI Network”). Each club in the PLI Network is designated as either an “Affiliate Club” or a “Reciprocal Club” (collectively, the “PLI Network Clubs”). The designation of the club as an “Affiliate Club” or a Reciprocal Club” makes it subject to certain rules, restrictions, and protocols known as the “Affiliate Access Program” or “Reciprocal Access Program”.
Benefits are administered by Arcis Golf ("AG"). The benefits, requirements, and other terms and conditions for the Program are set forth herein. By using the Program benefits, members hereby agree to these terms and conditions as amended from time to time in the sole discretion of Arcis Golf. Members of participating Arcis Golf private clubs are eligible to participate in the Program by paying the required non-refundable yearly fee.
Any Arcis Golf private club golf member enrolled in the Program between June 1, 2019 – August 31, 2019 will have their program benefits valid through August 31, 2019 regardless of their enrollment date. On 8/31 each year, each member will be billed an annual, one-time upgrade fee at their home club for benefits valid from September 1, 2019 – August 31, 2020. The Program will be auto renewed each year unless the member notifies the club in writing before 9/1 of the next year of their intention not to renew the Program. The Arcis Access annual fee is subject to change each year.
Golf Access Benefits
Participating members in the Program will have access to the “PLI Network Clubs” – and abide by the corresponding rules, restrictions and protocols of either the ‘Affiliate Access Program’ or the ‘Reciprocal Access Program - based on their home club designation as either an “Affiliate Club” or a “Reciprocal Club.” Note that the PLI Network Clubs include AG owned private clubs previously included in the Arcis Access program.
