THE FREE GOLF BAG FEE DEAL
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.
OMNI guests who join its Select program can be reimbursed for airline golf bag fees.
