Golf Balls!

We're travelling to Mauritius in October for a golfing holiday - can anyone tell me if we can put golf balls into our cabin luggage? I've checked on the Emirates site but can't find the answer.

Well at the cost of £34.99 for a box I will be packing sons in my hand luggage!

That's a fairway to travel with a box of golf balls. I'll not tell a bad lie you'll be ok. I definitely wood. You flying club class?

You may get to par-take in an open face club sandwedge, chips and a drink in a cup with a slice. Sit nearer the (s)wing for a smooth journey putt you may fade to green should it be bumpy.

Push back and relax with a good hook, a cup of tee and enjoy the hole journey.

How long did it take you to come up with that - you've obviously got too much time on your hands.

Since you're travelling with Emirates and your clubs are transported for free, why not just keep them in the golf bag. Saves carrying them around.

<<why not just keep them in the golf bag.>>

This is exactly what we do - or perhaps buy a few sleeves, when we arrive.

Sadly Emirates have changed this particular rule hence the query - we've now been told the clubs will count as part of our allowed baggage weight!!

This made me smile - Emirates now say golf clubs will be part of the allowed baggage weight (!) -
