On-line Bookings and Payments Help

Frequently asked questions or issues that come up

BOOKING: Members can now book (register) for an event on-line.  Online registration is REQUIRED even if you do not pay online.  This prevents communication errors and having too many people signed up for an event.

SOLD OUT: If an event is sold out, contact the leader to be placed on a wait/substitution list.  Cancellations are not unusual.

Unable to select 2 people when trying to pay: This "issue" occurs when the event only has a single spot remaining.  Get on the wait/substitution list.

PAYMENT: Paypal does NOT (I repeat, NOT) require a paypal account to use.  
You can pay as a "paypal" guest with a credit card.  And paypal is world wide and accepts any currency, which is why we use paypal to help out our non-USA based members.

  • Payment can be sent to the treasurer (see officers list for the current treasurers address).

  • Payment can also be made at the once a month general membership meetings.

  • The hole-in-one club can only be signed up for at general membership meetings.

VGC "Monthly Meetings" are not bookable (just turn up).

Any event shown as FREE will be bookable and you will not be directed to pay.  NOTE:  There maybe attendance limits on "free" events. I suggest you sign up early.

Golf Event GUESTS:  Guest need a sponsor and need to contact the leader directly to see if guest spots are available for that event.  Members have priority for golf event spaces (so become a member so that is not an issue).

To Book/Register On-line for one of the VGC events:

  1. Access the Events (Booking) Page from the top menu bar on any page

  2. Click Book Event button below the event you wish to consider booking (it provides more details)

  3. Near the bottom of the page, Click + or - to select the number of players 

  4. Click Checkout to complete your booking

  5. Fill in your details (Buyer Details) as follows:

    1. First Name -- We actually use the first complete golfers name (first name and last name).

    2. Last Name -- We actually use the 2nd complete golfers name (first name and last name).

    3. Answer any other questions about that event to the best of your ability. These questions usually provide guidance to the event leader.

  6. Click Continue to advance to the PAYMENT PAGE (there is a tiny edit button in the top right if the name or email is wrong)

  7. Select payment type (Paypal is strongly preferred and you do not need a paypal account)

  8. Click Place Order

    1. Pay with Paypal choosen: Next you will see a Paypal log-in page.  Do not panic!  At the bottom of that is the non-paypal member option which simply says "Pay with Debit or Credit Card".  Click that and proceed as directed.

    2. Manual Payment choosen: Your transaction will end.

  9. If the process is successful, you will see a confirmation screen similar to below and a confirmation e-Mail (with ticket) will be sent to the purchaser as proof of booking and/or payment.

 

 

 

If you don't get a message as above and/or a confirmation Email, then your booking has not completed.

There will also be an option to add the booking to your on-line calendar if you use Gmail, Outlook or iCal

There are options at the bottom of the confirmation page to Print or Download the booking and to go Back to Site.
