About Fairway Rewards
Fairway Rewards is a venture–funded startup now located in Sonora, California. For eight years, we’ve strived to provide innovative customer loyalty, incentive marketing, and media solutions for golf courses.
How We Got Started
Back in 2001, as the Co-Executive Director for the California Golf Course Owners Association, Loralei Abels specialized in promoting golf programs to increase profitability for golf courses. She worked with board members, course owners, and senior executives from renowned courses like Pebble Beach and Poppy Hills.
In 2002, with the help of several board members and golf industry professionals, Ms. Abels started Fairway Rewards to extend the benefits of her exciting promotional programs to clients nationwide. Program benefits included:
Golf loyalty programs for member golf courses
Incentive programs and gift cards for individual member courses
Course promotion with state departments of tourism
Group discounts (for insurance and credit card processing)
During the next eight years, Ms. Abels focused her efforts on fine-tuning her marketing programs while expanding her network of member courses.
The latest addition to our product line is the Fairway Rewards Golf Course Gift Card, launched in fall 2009. The cards, available in $25 increments up to $500, are redeemable at over Thousands of quality golf courses nationwide - and the list is growing fast. We guarantee we can find and book a course convenient and enjoyable to you!
The company is led by experienced golf industry specialists, with the goal of providing paid golf course green fees to a wider audience than ever before. We are passionate about golf and the golf courses we represent, and we want you to experience what we know: that golf is a game for a lifetime!
From simple online booking at local courses to planning a luxury resort holiday with our personalized concierge service, Fairway Rewards Golf Gift Cards puts the ideal golfing experience within putting range.
