TOPGOLF MEMBERSHIP TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. MEMBERSHIPS: Topgolf currently offers a Lifetime Membership, Pre-Paid memberships and monthly memberships at select locations. These monthly memberships will collectively be referred to as “Monthly Memberships” in this Agreement.
2. MEMBERSHIP TERMS: If you choose a Lifetime Membership, you will pay a one-time charge of $5.00 where applicable, and you will be subject to the Terms and Conditions contained in this Agreement. If you choose a Monthly Membership, you agree that as a condition of your continued membership at Topgolf, you authorize Topgolf or its agent to charge your Payment Card the Monthly Membership Fee (plus applicable taxes), in effect from time to time and which may change, on each monthly periodic anniversary date of your membership, until your Monthly Membership is canceled, as set forth in Paragraph 19 below. For example, if your Monthly Membership began on June 19, your periodic anniversary date is the 19th of each month, and your Payment Card will be charged for the Monthly Membership Fee on that date each month. If your monthly periodic anniversary date falls on a date that is not contained in your anniversary month (for example, if your paid membership started on the 31st day of a month), your Payment Card will be charged on the last day of that month. You will not be provided with copies of charge slips evidencing the recurring charges of the Monthly Membership Fee unless requested.

3. PAYMENT CARDS: You may pay by corporate check, VISA®, MASTERCARD®, or AMERICAN EXPRESS® credit card or VISA or MASTERCARD check card (check card must bear the VISA or MASTERCARD logo) for any membership. Any such credit or check card shall be referred to as the “Payment Card”. You also authorize Topgolf to place a pending charge to your Payment Card when you sign up for any membership and prior to each subsequent periodic charge for Monthly Membership. Pending charges are used to verify your billing address and the validity of your Payment Card, are temporary (typically 3 to 7 days in length) and will not be converted into an actual charge to you. Pending charges, while pending, will, however, reduce the available amount of credit on your Payment Card in the amount of $1 per $1 of pending charge. You also authorize Topgolf to charge your Payment Card for any other charges you may incur associated with your Monthly Membership, if applicable.
a. MONTHLY BILLING
FEES RELATING TO YOUR PAYMENT CARD. You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your Payment Card by the issuer, bank or financial institution including, but not limited to, membership, overdraft, insufficient funds and over the credit limit fees. Cash or check will not be accepted for monthly billing.
EXPIRATION DATE AND REFUSAL OF CHARGES TO YOUR PAYMENT CARD. If your Payment Card reaches its expiration date, your failure to cancel your Monthly Membership constitutes authorization for Topgolf to continue billing that Payment Card. If your Payment Card for any reason will not accept charges for any periodic Monthly Membership Fee, your Monthly Membership will be immediately suspended until payment is collected. For the 60 days immediately following the suspension day, Topgolf may attempt to charge the Payment Card the periodic Monthly Membership Fee every 10 days. If the charge is accepted, then your Monthly Membership benefits will be reinstated as of the date the charge is accepted. In order for your membership to be reinstated, you must make your Payment Card information valid by either rectifying the issue with the Payment Card issuer or providing new Payment Card information by contacting Member Services. If Topgolf is able to charge your Payment Card (existing or new, if you have provided new Payment Card information) and any past due Topgolf membership fees are paid, then your Monthly Membership benefits will continue uninterrupted and this Payment Card will be used to charge the applicable periodic membership fee for each consecutive renewal period until your Monthly Membership is cancelled (your original anniversary date will still apply) and will be your Payment Card for all purposes. If Topgolf is unable to charge your Payment Card (existing or new) for 3 consecutive billing dates, your Monthly Membership will be terminated and you will not be able to use your membership or any associated perks at any Topgolf location. If Topgolf terminates your membership, you must immediately surrender your membership card and you will remain liable for all unpaid dues (including any Monthly Membership charges and all other charges against your account). If your membership is terminated by Topgolf, you will not receive a refund on any amounts paid under any type of membership.
From time to time, Topgolf may avail itself of account updating services provided by the Payment Card industry, including, without limitation, VISA’s Account Updater program or MasterCard’s Automatic Billing Updater program. By enrolling in a Monthly Membership, you hereby agree and authorize Topgolf to update your Payment Card or similar account information and charge any updated Payment Card in accordance with the terms and conditions of such account updating programs.
SERVICE CHARGES: You agree to pay a $20.00 charge (plus applicable taxes) for all rejected payments, whether by Payment Card, or Pre-Authorized/credit card auto debit system. Any arrears of dues owed to Topgolf will bear interest at 18% per annum (subject to applicable usury laws).
b. ANNUAL PAYMENT
Members have the option of paying for the entire 12-month initial term (rather than monthly billing) upon signing this Agreement, and will pay their 12-month term and initiation fee in full by corporate check, VISA®, MASTERCARD®, or AMERICAN EXPRESS® credit card or VISA or MASTERCARD check card (check card must bear the VISA or MASTERCARD logo). Upon the completion of the initial 12-month term, Member may choose to provide payment as stated in sections 3 and 4a for monthly billing, or remit payment in full for an additional 12-month term. Payments made to Topgolf for Annual Memberships are non-refundable.
If a Monthly Membership is paid in full by the Member’s employer, the employer holds the right to the Membership account in the event the member is no longer employed by said company, for any reason, through the end of the paid term.
c. MEMBERSHIP FREEZE: Topgolf offers Platinum and Platinum Hero Members the ability to temporarily suspend, or “freeze,” their Monthly Membership when they know in advance they will not be using any Topgolf for an extended period. A Platinum or Platinum Hero Membership may be placed on freeze with a 30-day written notice from a Member to Topgolf. Months on freeze do not apply toward the Member’s 12- month initial term. During the freeze period, Members will be charged $50 per month, plus applicable tax, and are not permitted to use their Monthly Membership at any Topgolf location. Freeze fee is not applicable toward Topgolf or cancellation fee and is non-refundable. Members may still visit a Topgolf on a purchase-per-visit basis; Monthly Membership perks will not apply on these visits. A membership freeze cannot begin prior to Topgolf receiving written notice from the Member stating his/her intent to freeze and the intended duration of the freeze; an end-freeze date is required at the time of the request. This request can be submitted to Member Services. Corporate Platinum Memberships are not eligible for freeze.
5. SUSPENSION/TERMINATION: Topgolf may suspend or terminate your membership at any time for any breach of this Agreement or for any other reason by giving you written or oral notice of such termination, with or without cause. If Topgolf terminates your membership, you must immediately surrender your membership card and you will remain liable for all unpaid dues (including any Monthly Membership charges and all other charges against your account). If your membership is terminated by Topgolf, you will not receive a refund on any amounts paid under any type of membership.
6. CO-SIGNER: If a Member is under 18 years of age at the date the terms and conditions of this Agreement are accepted, a Co-signer is required. As Topgolf would not have agreed to enter into this Agreement without the promises of the Co-signer, the Co-signer promises to pay all amounts due to Topgolf under this Agreement when due, and to keep and perform all the Member's promises and agreements. The Co-signer’s promises and agreements are joint and several with the Member's promises and agreements. If more than one person signs this Agreement as Co-signer, the promises are both joint and several.

You agree that, unless you cancel your applicable Monthly Membership prior to the effective date of the change, you will be charged the new applicable periodic Monthly Membership Fee (plus applicable taxes) on each periodic anniversary date after the effective date of such change, and you authorize Topgolf to charge the new periodic Monthly Membership Fee (plus applicable taxes) to your Payment Card. Topgolf reserves the right to suspend, modify or end the membership program without prior notice, in its sole discretion.
