Baggage becoming weighty issue

The new and still evolving policy of many airlines to charge passengers for checked baggage could give the Grand Strand another obstacle to overcome in attempts to attract visiting golfers. Some airlines charge for the first bag checked, others for the second and subsequent bags, and the costs can be exhorbitant. In a trip in July to visit family and friends in Maine, I chose not to pay the $50 it was going to cost me to bring my golf clubs and instead borrowed a freind's clubs for a pair of nine-hole rounds.
If courses take a look to the present and near future, they may want to start adding to their inventory of rental clubs. It will allow them to be prepared for the possible increase in requests and provide a new means of revenue.
