Golf Card International was founded in 1974 with a simple idea: find a way to help golfers save money on the high cost of green fees. To do this, GCI built a network of affiliated golf courses that would provide savings to the avid golfers who constitute the membership. After nearly 40 years, Golf Card has provided savings to hundreds of thousands of member golfers and is now accepted at nearly 3,000 golf courses in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
