KLM Open tickets with discount for FB Platinum?

Hi,

In the past you could get free or discounted tickets to the KLM Open Golf tournament as FB Elite. I can’t find anything for the 2023 tournament. Does anyone know if this is still available, and if so, how to book the tickets?

thanks

I recall getting an email with an offer previous years (believe even for free, but my memory may trick me here). Since not a golf fan did not partake. Nothing seen yet this year.

You just need to wait until they send you your personal invitation.

You're a little early. Although the invites for the Dutch Open 2022 did indeed go out in March of last year, that was an outlier. In 2021, the invitations were sent at the end of July. In 2019, the invitations were sent in mid June.

The tournament changed as of 2022 from September to May, but if invitations for last year came in March 2022, then i’ll be patient for another week.

thanks

Oops! I didn't know that.

The invitations should be coming very soon then - if they are going to invite Platinums this year as they have done in the past!

No invites for Golds yet. I just checked and last year I received first week of April, 50% discount offer.

I would have gone on my Amex offer but the dates are not working for me this year.

Is there some reason to go if you are not into golf?

No idea how the Golf is arranged. Last year I was invited to the KLM Family Christmas Circus (it was a once only event). Lots of fun attractions for the kids before the event, also food was included. What was arranged around the circus was fun to go to so possibly the same case for the Golf event?

This is not a golf-themed KLM event though, this is a proper pro golf tournament that KLM happens to sponsor.

hi all,

I did not get any invitations yet too as a Plat.. strange as it's close to < 2 months to the event.

Still hoping for the best - but possibly due to cost saving that they might stop inviting Plats anymore for free...or at all... as I do know the previous events, it was always filled with lots of invitees...

Cheers!

Well, it took a while but today the invite for up to 2 tickets in my mailbox. Since based in Paris till Summer I cannot partake (and probably would not have even if I were in NL). Maybe they invite staggered....firs the Ulti's, if that gives not an overwhelming response others.

And ​​​​Fabo.sk - seems they apparently used the old scheme for Economy comfort (plats for free, golds 50% discount ;-))

I haven't gotten anything yet, but I don't seem to be getting much from KLM (maybe I opted out I think).

Supposing the numbers are limited, at least for Plat free tickets?
