The candidates have left Iowa and New Hampshire for the warmer climates of South Carolina. Perfect for golf you might say, but “golf fit for a President” has been a reality for many of the courses at Omni Hotels and Resorts around the country for years. American Presidents love to golf and they get to play some of the great courses in the country. Omni properties are now offering Presidential-themed golf packages throughout 2016 at all Omni golf resorts across the U.S. With the weather about to warm up, it’s time to start thinking golf.
Omni knows how to treat guests like a commander-in-chief based on its rich history of hosting numerous American politicians and dignitaries dating back well over 100 years, but don’t worry, your finger isn’t “on the button”, so you can just enjoy your golf and stay at the Omni property of your choice. From New Hampshire and Texas, to battleground states like Florida and Pennsylvania, golfers can get the presidential treatment at some of the nation’s finest courses and luxurious resorts, many of which have direct ties to presidential history, so cast your vote now. Here are some suggestions, Mr. or Mrs. President:
Omni Barton Creek Resort, near Austin, Texas has hosted both the 41st and 43rd Presidents and is offering a unique “Father-Son Presidential Promotion” including a round of golf for $100 per player – representing the cost for greens fees in the 1990s – as well as a sleeve of balls imprinted with the American flag, and turndown cards featuring quotes from distinguished guests.
Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Florida — where President Ford played in a member-guest tournament in the 1980s — is debuting the “Running Mates” package, which includes a special rate of two rounds for two people, a $50 culinary credit, a special welcome amenity, and an optional upgrade to the Presidential Suite.
Omni Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire has a Cabinet’s-worth of golf candidates on its ballot, including a package featuring unlimited rounds with cart; a buy-one, get-one-free promotion; and a “Presidential Peak Foursome” that promises complimentary golf to any group of four with the same surnames as any of the surrounding Presidential Range peaks (Jackson, Pierce, Eisenhower, Monroe, Franklin, Monroe, Jefferson, Adams, Webster, Madison, Reagan, and, of course, Washington).
Omni Homestead Resort in Virginia is where golf began in this country. More Presidents have “stayed and played” at the Omni Homestead than any other property in the country. The Presidential package here includes accommodations, unlimited golf on the Cascades and Old courses, daily breakfast buffet, three-course dinner in any restaurant, a special presidential welcome amenity, two passes to the adults-only spa garden and parking. The only thing it doesn’t include is transportation on Air Force one.
Other Omni resorts with election year golf specials include:
Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate (Florida)
The Omni Grove Park Inn (North Carolina)
Omni Tucson National Resort (Arizona)
Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa (California)
Omni La Costa Resort & Spa (California)
Omni Bedford Springs Resort (Pennsylvania)
Omni Interlocken Hotel (Colorado)
If you really do aspire to play golf like a President, you might want to look up to President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who played an estimated 800 rounds of golf during his tenure. When was he ever in the Oval Office?
Check the weather! Weather patterns mean these 2016 golf deals are not all available all year long. But given the nationwide presence of the luxury hotel brand, there’s always a Presidential Golf Package waiting to be sworn in.
