MileagePlus Members Score with the PGA

United Airlines has partnered up with the PGA Tour. Members in the airline’s MileagePlus frequent flyer program can now tee off at over 30 world class North American golf courses in the PGA Tour’s TPC network. Golf enthusiasts also get access to special discounts while on the green, and can use miles to bid on exclusive PGA experiences.

Saving at tee time

With this partnership, MileagePlus Premier members get 20% off on equipment rentals and starting times at 12 TPC golf ranges. All other members receive a 10% discount at eight clubs. There is a 14- to 180-day window to book reservations depending upon the course. All reservations must be made through to be eligible to get the discount.

Frequent flyers who want to improve their game can receive a 10% discount on two-day, three-day and four-day workshops at one of the PGA Tour Academies located in Scottsdale, Las Vegas, Sawgrass and San Antonio. People who are interested in attending PGA tournaments to see how the pros play are eligible for upgraded viewing spots at select tournaments, including the Shell Houston Open, AT&T National, and  Barclays.

Golf vacation packages are also available to members providing them access to some of the amenities golf pros get while on tour. Packages include accommodations, instructions, admission to practice facilities, and time on the course. Packages are available at:

  • TPC Sawgrass

  • TPC Scottsdale

  • The Old White at TPC at The Greenbrier

  • TPC San Antonio

  • TPC Las Vegas

  • TPC Stadium Course at PGA West

Exclusive PGA Tour experiences are also being auctioned off and members can use their miles to place a bid. The current offering is the RBC Heritage Inside-the-Ropes travel experience. The package includes four nights in Hilton Head, honorary observer status, and a pair of badges for the clubhouse.

More from MileagePlus

Whether cardholders are heading to the PGA or not, they can also take advantage of some additional partnerships. Premier members who are interested in leasing or buying a Mercedes-Benz get access to special incentives and mile earning opportunities. Certain car purchases can earn up to 25,000 award miles.

MileagePlus has also teamed up with the Marriott Rewards network to create RewardsPlus, offering travelers complimentary breakfast, room upgrades, free internet, and late checkout. With this partnership travelers can convert their miles to Marriott Rewards Points a 1:1 rate, while saving 20% when they convert their reward points into MileagePlus miles.
