American Airlines accepts golf equipment in place of a regular piece of checked baggage, and standard baggage fees apply. You are limited to a 50lbs weight limit, but the oversize baggage fee is waived.
You can travel with 1 golf bag with up to:
14 golf clubs
12 golf balls
1 pair of golf shoes
Please note that you cannot travel with swingless golf club load strips.
You'll be charged the same fee as the 1st or 2nd baggage fee of your destination. If you have excess baggage, you’ll be charged the excess fee for each item you travel with.
If you are traveling to, through or from Brazil, you’ll be charged $42.50 for your golf equipment.
If the golf bag contains anything other than the approved items then additional oversize and overweight charges will apply. You may be asked to open your bag at the airport.
Maximum Weight and Size
Maximum free weight on golf clubs is 50 lbs. Size is limited to the size of a hard-sided golf case.
Swingless Golf Club load strips are considered dangerous goods and are not allowed in checked or carry-on baggage.
