WPGA partners with Affinity Travel Benefits
By WPGA • October 27, 2017

The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association announced today that it has partnered with Affinity Travel Benefits, a leading edge, online travel aggregation platform providing exclusive discounts up to 70% off retail rates at hotels and resort properties.

The partnership with Affinity Travel is a part of the WPGA Members Program.

The third-party vendor obtains heavily discounted rates that are not available to the public on travel sites like Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline, Trivago, and Orbitz. Affinity also coordinates favorable rates and terms on group lodging management for tournament players, families, fans, and association staff members. Affinity discounts are only available in a private network, such as the WPGA, where members have access to additional benefits.

All property reservations booked through Affinity Travel are guaranteed to be the lowest rate available. If a WPGA member finds a lower rate on any site, anywhere, within 24 hours of the booking, Affinity Travel will match the price and refund the difference.

“We are delighted that the International Association Of Golf Administrators put together an over-arching agreement allowing each State Association a simple and quick path for bringing travel discounts to members and players," said Affinity Travel President Stephen Boyd. "Members of golf associations travel for many reasons. Offering a guaranteed low-price hotel room adds immense value to a growing association and its membership benefit programs."
