When you make a reservation on one of our business partners’ websites or apps, we may also receive certain information such as your name and reservation information, including the accommodation reserved, in order to process your reservation and identify which channel your reservation has originated from.
If you have not finalized a reservation online, we may send you a reminder to continue with your reservation.

You may opt-out of receiving these reminders as detailed below under "Opting Out of Marketing Communications from Us."
Please note that the confirmation emails and text messages sent after your booking, as well as the guest review emails sent after your departure, are not marketing messages. These messages are part of your golf course reservation process. Respectively, they contain information for you to check in at your booked golf course, and tools to optionally rate that golf course after your stay. You will continue to receive them, even if you have opted out of our marketing messages.
