Up and Coming

Flail to the Chief

President’s Day is upon us and, coincidentally, the country is getting ready to nominate and elect the 45th Commander in Chief in November.

Bush-golfersWhich was enough to inspire the Omni Resort chain to launch a year-long Presidential Golf promotion at several of its golf-oriented resorts around the country.

You probably won’t get serenaded with a stirring rendition of Hail to the Chief on the first tee, but the resorts participating in the promotion promise discounted rates, preferred tee times, some kind of Presidential amenity and other extras.

Omni Barton Creek

Bush) the “Father-Son Presidential Promotion” offers a round of golf at the resort for the $100 rate that was in effect when President Bush 41 held office (1988-1992). Guests will also receive a sleeve of balls with the American flag and turndown cards containing famous quotes from the two Presidents.

Omni Mount Washington Resort

The delightful course occupies a secluded valley in the shadow of the Presidential range, beneath the peaks of Mount Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and others. The promotion includes unlimited golf with cart and if you can find four golfers who share their last name with one of the presidential peaks, you’ll play for free.
