The deal offers all British Airways passengers 50 per cent off on a weekday booking at Almouj Golf and one complimentary game when purchasing an 18-hole round of play during the weekend. In addition, members of Almouj Golf can take advantage of a 10 per cent discount when booking their next flight with British Airways before June 30, 2016 with travel until December 31, 2016.
