AJGA teams up with Avis for member benefits in 2012


The American Junior Golf Association and Avis Rent A car announced a new partnership for the 2012 season which will provide special discounts and Avis Preferred Service to AJGA members and their families.

“We are excited to again have the support of Avis for AJGA members and parents,” said Jason Etzen, chief business officer. “The brand represents savings, service and safety in making travel reservations, which is the best benefit for our membership.”

Avis and Budget will serve as the preferred rental car brands of the AJGA, presenting savings on vehicles for all AJGA event-related and personal travel. The new relationship provides a variety of benefits including:

·         Savings on rental rates in the U.S., Canada and international locations
·         Complimentary enrollment in Avis Preferred Service and Budget Fastbreak Programs
·         Seasonal offers including money off weekly and weekend rentals, SUVs and specialty vehicles
·         Guaranteed use of a non-smoking vehicle in the U.S. and Canada

·         AJGA membership-exclusive offers available through the player center, AJGA website and registration packet

Avis Preferred Service, which is available at more than 1,400 locations worldwide, keeps membership preferences on file, allowing for a bypass of the rental counter and a faster start to travel. AJGA members can enroll for the program online and will receive an Avis Wizard Number which will be used to track rewards and web reservations. For more information, visit the AJGA’s landing page.

The American Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf. The AJGA provides valuable exposure for college golf scholarships, and has an annual junior membership (boys and girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,500 junior golfers from 49 states and more than 40 countries. To ensure scholarship opportunities for all junior golfers who have the skill, the AJGA created the Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant program to provide financial assistance to young players in need.
Titleist, the AJGA's National Sponsor, has been the catalyst and driving force behind the Association's success since 1989. Rolex, which is in its third decade of AJGA support, became the inaugural AJGA Premier Partner in 2004. In 2007, after 12 years of support, Polo Ralph Lauren became the AJGA's second Premier Partner.
AJGA alumni have risen to the top of amateur, collegiate and professional golf. Former AJGA juniors have compiled more than 500 victories on the PGA and LPGA Tours.
