National Car Rental Bonus Pool

Returning for 2017 is the National Car Rental Pro-Am Championship.  Thanks to a nice sponsorship, National Car Rental will continue sponsoring of the team competitions.   They ask one thing – enroll all players in the Emerald Club, National Car Rental’s FREE tool to help you use a special PGA discounted rate and also ease the rental process by allowing you to bypass the rental counter.  To be eligible for the team competitions, all players on the team must be Emerald Club members (current membership qualifies) and there is a place on the entry form to provide each player’s Emerald Club number.

Emerald Club signup – Pro
Emerald Club signup – Am
