The Connoquenessing Country Club doesn't accept cash. Thanks to First Western Bank in New Castle, Pa., it does accept its own Visa card.

The country club in the lush hills of western Pennsylvania was the first organization to become part of First Western's affinity card program in 1988. Members can put greens fees, dinners, and other amenities on a credit card that features the name of the country club along with a picture of a golf ball on a tee.
