Cincinnati Recreation Commission golf courses launch Birdie Pass loyalty program

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Recreation Commission (CRC) golf courses - managed by Billy Casper Golf (BCG) - have launched its brand new annual Birdie Pass golfer loyalty program for 2013.

The Birdie Pass is $15 for senior golfers and $19 per year for others. The card guarantees the lowest rate at all CRC golf courses and represents a potential savings of up to $13 per round. In addition, pass holders receive pro shop and food and drink specials, as well as invitations to Birdie Pass-only events and clinics. The Birdie Pass is valid through December 31, 2013.

"Providing a value-added experience is a terrific way to reward our loyal golfers," says Paul Holzderber, Regional General Manager of the CRC courses. "Our courses are in excellent condition and what promises to be a great season is just getting underway."
