New Prescription Discount Card Benefits Junior Golf

Donations Provided to Local Programs through Medication Purchases

Rx.golf has been launched as the only prescription discount program dedicated to specifically supporting established junior golf programs across the country, while helping to offset the skyrocketing costs of prescription medications.  The new Rx.golf card is accepted at over 68,000 participating pharmacies in the U.S.

The Rx.golf program features an easy-to-navigate pharmacy price search tool that allows consumers to find the lowest price on all their medications in their local area. Then, just by showing the Rx.golf card at the pharmacy consumers can realize huge savings and at the same time support junior golf programs in their state. Every the time card is used to purchase a medication, $1.00 will be donated to junior golf.

Rx.golf offers two ways of obtaining a card. Consumers can get a traditional card by visiting www.rx.golf and either printing one out or having the card sent to their phone. The other option is to visit www.rxgolf.app and download a progressive web app to their phone. The app provides a pharmacy price search and digital card all at the touch of a finger, along with access to other valuable information.

“By using the Rx.golf card or app, consumers can save up to 87% on most prescription drugs,” said founder and creator Michael Thompson. “The pharmacy price search does all the legwork and finds the lowest prices, no matter where in the country you are, so you can make smart choices and save money. The free Rx.golf prescription savings card means you have access to the lowest price on your prescriptions — either your insurance copay, the pharmacy retail price or the Rx.golf price.”

“I personally have known the founder of Rx.golf for nearly four decades and Rx.golf believes, just like I do, that junior golf programs not only create better golfers but they create better citizens,” stated Dick Horton, the recently retired executive director of the Tennessee Golf Association and the Tennessee Golf Foundation. “In Tennessee, we’ve partnered with Rx.golf not only to save on prescription drug costs but also to bring golf and its core values of honesty, integrity and sportsmanship to young golfers all across our country. By supporting Rx.golf, you’ll be helping grow the game through the many established programs that support junior golfers.”

So who can benefit from the Rx.golf card? If you have no prescription insurance coverage, a plan with a high deductible or are between jobs and utilizing temporary coverage, Rx.golf is designed for you. Even if you are satisfied with your insurance, Rx.golf often will save you money.  If you play golf, love the game or just like watching it, get the Rx.golf card, and enjoy the savings on prescription medications. Then share it with everyone you know and help grow the game through junior programs in your area.

About Rx.golf

Mike Thompson, managing director at RxVentures LLC in Nashville, Tennessee, created Rx.golf, a new prescription drug savings card that benefits junior golf initiatives.  Thompson has been a pioneer in the merchant-funded Cash Back Rewards business through his company, Tuition Fund, which was designed to help families save for higher education costs. 

While striving to follow his dream of playing professional golf following his service in the U.S. Air Force, Thompson was sponsored by a local television station owner who introduced him to broadcasting.  In 1973, he acquired his first broadcasting facility in Nashville, and he was part of the team that first put The Richard Simmons Show on the air.  Thompson also was executive producer of the highly popular Mike Douglas Show.  He subsequently became an integral part of the FOX Television start-up team in 1985, eventually owning or operating 15 Fox and other affiliate stations throughout the Southeast.

Ultimately, Thompson’s love for golf and his longstanding commitment to introducing children to the game led him to create the Rx.golf card, where $1.00 of every prescription purchase will benefit junior golf programs at the local level across the country.  Rx.golf is available free to anyone and the card is accepted nationally at over 68,000 pharmacies and offers savings on more than 15,000 medications.  For information about Rx.golf or to acquire the card, visit www.rx.golf.com.
