IIS rewrite issue. I cannot get the query_string to match

What is wrong with this IIS rewrite rule?  I cannot seem to get it to work. If I remove the query string condition it works as expected.

<rule name="Rule 495" stopProcessing="true">
				<match url="^golfbooking/golfbook.aspx$" ignoreCase="true" />
				<conditions>
				<add input="{QUERY_STRING}" pattern="PackName=Tee+Times+Only&amp;PackNew=TRUE&amp;hdr=pmb" />
				</conditions>
				<action type="Redirect" url="https://www.mbgolf.com/golfbooking/teetimesonly.htm" redirectType="Permanent" />
				</rule>

If you are only looking for this exact query string on the golfbook.aspx page, you could try an exact match rule:

<rule name="Tee Time Only" patternSyntax="ExactMatch">
    <match url="golfbooking/golfbook.aspx?PackName=Tee+Times+Only&amp;PackNew=TRUE&amp;hdr=pmb" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="https://www.mbgolf.com/golfbooking/teetimesonly.htm" appendQueryString="false" redirectType="Permanent" />
</rule>

If there additional query string variable attached to the request, you will have to account for those as well.

That doesn't work.  Something with that query string has to be causing an issue...

I had to escape the + signs

<rule name="Rule 495" stopProcessing="true">
				<match url="^golfbooking/golfbook.aspx$" ignoreCase="true" />
				<conditions>
				<add input="{QUERY_STRING}" pattern="PackName=Tee\+Times\+Only&amp;PackNew=TRUE&amp;hdr=pmb" />
				</conditions>
				<action type="Redirect" url="https://www.mbgolf.com/golfbooking/teetimesonly.htm" redirectType="Permanent" />
