As a huge sports fan & MasterCard holder, I recently wrote about the Priceless Moments opportunity that MasterCard offers some of their card members. World Elite MasterCard holders can receive exclusive golfing benefits like Private Club Access, Course To Yourself, and Resort VIP Experiences. These opportunities are available & exclusive to World and World Elite cardholders and are available year around in select TPC courses.
For me, the fun didn’t stop there! I recently had the opportunity to visit and participate in the Member of the Day Benefit that MasterCard World & World Elite cardholders can enjoy themselves. What is the Member of the Day Benefit? I was able to enjoy golf privileges that PGA Tour Players, Golf Pros & TPC Members also enjoy such as early tee time at a TPC property, private access and the ability to play at your own pace (for none pros that is a fantastic option). In addition, you get a VIP experience.
I had a 7:30 a.m tee time at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, Louisiana. If you are local to New Orleans, you may already know that TPC Louisiana is home to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. The Zurich Classic is Louisiana’s only PGA Tour Stop with more than 100k spectators that will stop through TPC Louisiana’s Gates every year. I’ve never visited the location so I was so excited that not only would golf be in my future that day, but that I would get VIP treatment on my first visit there. I was going to bring my mother but due to her unexpected acute fracture of her elbow, I had to leave her at home while I get VIP access & treatment.
TPC Louisiana is more than beautiful wetlands and exquisite cypress trees, it also has five sets of tees which means that all skill levels can find a rewarding experience at the golf course which stretched 250 acres. TPC Louisiana is absolutely stunning!! I can see why so many flock to the area for total concentration in improving their golf game.
The 1st thing that happened when I arrived as MasterCard Member of the Day (aside from taking pictures) was introduced to the welcoming staff at TPC Louisiana. How did I receive VIP Treatment? When deciding meal options Executive Chef, Ryan Gall said to me…”It’s your decision, it’s all about YOU!” I thought to myself, what an amazing opportunity for a golf lover to enjoy!
As you can see in my behind the scenes pictures and course pictures treatment was 1st class. I enjoyed a beautiful golf day at TPC Louisiana, had a delicious brunch (they even asked if I had dietary restrictions, had lockers designated for myself & my mother in advance, golf cart ready for our round of golf & even took home some beautiful mementos from my experience. TPC Louisiana invited my mother to enjoy a game of golf when her arm/elbow was 100% and even sent her a to-go box of the meal she missed.
My golf game isn’t anything to write home about, but with the treatment I received as MasterCard’s Member of the Day benefits, I felt like I was a Golf Pro & I was in my domain. The benefit is definitely something to look into for your favorite golf lover. The staff at TPC Louisiana went over & beyond and also gave me a complete tour of the grounds and some history about the location. I felt that I was not only learning more about the game, but also learning more about a gem in my area and what it had to offer TPC Members.
So if you (or your favorite golf fan) would like a golf course to yourself or enjoy VIP treatment without being a TPC member, this is the perfect opportunity aim for. Who knows you might be enjoying the back nine with a TPC member and PGA TOUR players! Either way, a MasterCard Priceless Golf Moment is just a few clicks away.
