What is GolfBids?
Who is GolfBids?
GolfBids is powered and backed by GolfNow, the largest online tee time provider in the world. If you have a GolfNow account, you can use that account to bid on tee times!
Once I place my bid, what happens next?
Your dashboard will show the current status of the auction, including how much time is left and whether you are winning. You’ll have the option to bid again if you are outbid, and the app can notify you when there’s an update to your auction.
When do auctions end?
Generally, auctions end two hours before the tee time, so you’ll have plenty of time to grab your clubs, head to the golf course and warm up.
I’ve won the auction! What now?
Congratulations! Your credit card will be charged and you’re all set to play. You’ll receive a confirmation email with all of the details. Bring this with you to the golf course.
Why did the auction end early?
There are a few circumstances under which an auction may end early. For example, someone may have used the Buy Now option and purchased the tee time outright, or the tee time may have been sold at the golf course.
Can I cancel my bid if I made a mistake / bid on the wrong auction, etc.?
For assistance, including cancellations or errors, call the GolfBids support line at 1-800-379-0239.
What happened to the Buy Now button?
When the current bid is close to or the same as the Buy Now price, the Buy Now option is removed.
When is my credit card charged?
Your credit card is charged once you win the auction. All tee times are prepaid, noncancelable and non-refundable.
The auction is for 4 golfers. What if I only need a tee time with 2 golfers?
The number of golfers in an auction tee time is preset and cannot be changed.
Where do the star ratings for the Golf Courses come from?
Course ratings are provided by GolfAdvisor.com, the largest golf course ratings site in the world.
Who can I contact if I have a question or issue?

What happens if there’s a weather issue?
If you win an auction and there is inclement weather, GolfBids will refund the amount you paid in the auction. Contact us at 1-800-379-0239 for assistance in these cases.
How far in advance are tee time auctions?
