Many folks know that Bags Fly Free on Southwest Airlines, however what you might not know is that this includes golf bags. With the PGA Tour Playoffs (The Barclays in Edison, NJ) kicking off this weekend, just a pitching wedge away from EWR, we felt it was only fitting to let New Yorkers know that Southwest Airlines is the best way to their favorite golf getaway. Whether it’s one of our newer golf destinations (Charleston, S.C. / Beaches of Northwest Florida) or one of your old favorites (Orlando/Phoenix,) it’s easier than ever to get there with expanded service from the NYC Metro area!
To continue celebrating our new EWR service, and the fact we don't charge "Golf" Bag Fees, we converted The Southwest Porch at Bryant Park into a fully immersive golf experience!
The Porch has been outfitted with putting greens, a golf simulator, and plenty of fun golf activities to give New Yorkers and visitors a little golf getaway in the heart of Manhattan. Folks will have the chance to win everything from Southwest-branded golf balls and putters, to Charleston golf vacation packages provided by our good friends at Explore Charleston.
After a few swings and putts, Customers can come to the clubhouse (The Porch) to sip on Arnold Palmers and order bites from Wichcraft, whose servers will be decked out in outrageous golf outfits that will be sure to give Ian Poulter a run for his money.
So if you are in the Tri-State area this weekend, come on over to The Porch (weather-permitting) for some golf set amongst the skyscrapers of New York. If not, help spread the word that the green fees are the only fees you have to think about when flying with Southwest Airlines!
