Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — Mary For­gione

Here’s one way golfers can catch a break on the cost of fly­ing their golf bags. For much of this sum­mer, Omni Hotels & Re­sorts will re­im­burse bag fees for guests who join Omni’s re­wards pro­gram.

The deal: It’s free to en­roll in Omni’s Select Guest pro­gram. You may sign up on­line or at the front desk upon ar­rival. Pro­vide a bag­gage re­ceipt for your golf bag, andthe ho­tel will pay you back. The of­fer is good through Aug. 31. The deal works, of course, only if the air­line you fly charges for your golf bag. On South­west Air­lines, for ex­am­ple, golf bags are in­cluded in its two-bags-free pol­icy. Most air­lines de­fine a “golf bag” as hold­ing14 golf clubs, 12 golf balls and one pair of golf shoes. Some car­ri­ers have re­stric­tions on weight or size of the golf bag, so read the fine print be­fore you fly.
