Folks who like to play (and watch) golf can use Starwood points for VIP tickets to tournaments, exclusive access to championship courses and resorts, and golf clinics with professional golfers.

Some of these packages are auctions which go to the highest bidder.  Others can be purchased for a set number of Starwood points.

Currently, you can bid on an exclusive access package for the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta this September.  It includes VIP tickets for 2, entry to Skyboxes on the 6th and 18th greens, full buffet lunch, open bar, and snacks.

And the high bid (so far) is only 1,000 Starwood points!  Bidding closes on August 31, 2015.

In the past, similar packages have been auctioned off for 20,000 to 30,000 Starwood points.

For example, a lucky pair of golfers won the auction for tickets to the final day of the Ricoh British Women’s Open in Scotland for 30,000 Starwood points!

The package includes a night at the Trump Turnberry resort (which normally costs 12,000 to 16,000 Starwood points per night, depending on the season), lunch, dinner, and drinks for 2, a golf clinic, and a round of golf on the Ailsa championship course.

What a neat experience!
