5/31/2012—Lexus owners, with the warmer seasons already upon us, it’s time for a quick review of your current Lexus-driver golfing benefits.
First of all, you’re eligible for VIP parking—as in special parking for Lexus owners at the U.S. Open next month, hosted at San Francisco’s Olympic Club June 11–17.
How it works: Lexus owners are eligible for daily parking passes with access to a special lot, which is just a quick five-minute shuttle ride to the course (much more convenient than the longer shuttle rides from the general admission lots).
To request a pass, log in to the Lexus Driver’s site up above, or join the site if you haven’t already—even if you’re a Lexus owner, you’ll need to have joined to use this particular benefit. From there, just indicate which days of the event you’ll be attending. (Please note that parking pass quantities are limited; also, note that a parking pass doesn’t include tickets to the event itself.)
Lexus owners also get special parking at July’s U.S. Women’s Open at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wisconsin: While supplies last, Lexus owners get reduced pricing on Trophy Club Tickets and Badges, which come with preferred parking for the championship. Again, just log in (or join) at the top of this page and a link will allow you to book the experience.
And finally, if traveling to these tournaments just won’t fit into your schedule this year, know this: Lexus owners receive 10 percent off the retail price of any three-day ANNIKA Academy Golf Package with accommodations.
Lexus, of course, sponsored Annika Sörenstam for years, and these days, one of her numerous golfing projects is the renowned ANNIKA Academy in Florida. This high-end boutique golf school offers a spectrum of courses year round, from one-hour lessons to three-day programs where student/guests get to play with Annika.
Like the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open perks, the ANNIKA Academy discount is redeemable after logging in to the driver’s site.
