For those shoveling snow right now… imagine blue skies, drinks with umbrellas and teeing it up in Miami, Colombia or Turks and Caicos. It’s time for some sunshine.
However, as we all know traveling isn’t like it used to be, no problem. Here are a few tips to make your next golf vacation faster, lighter and smarter.
The credo at Ship Sticks is this, “we make getting your golf clubs to and from your destination easier than it’s ever been – allowing you to enjoy a hassle-free travel experience to anywhere in the world.” Rental clubs get treated worse than rental cars and there’s no chance in hell your destination is going to be able to match the quality of your Miura irons, Itobori Golf handcrafted forged wedges or your Piretti putter. You’re probably thinking? “How much does it cost?” Shipping costs vary depending on location, bag weight and transit time. Detailed quotes can be obtained online by visiting the Ship Sticks website and see the Quick Quote feature.
Pack light to enough to avoid checking luggage, the maximum dimensions for a carry-on bag i.e. 9 inches x 14 inches x 22 inches (22 cm x 35 cm x 56 cm). Plan outfits for each day of the trip and put all your shoes in the golf traveler which will be waiting for you in your room courtesy of Ship Sticks.
Nap comfortably on the flight with an Original Ostrich Pillow, the odd looks you’ll get on the flight will be worth it when you get to your destination feeling like a million bucks.
No need to remove shoes, belts, light jackets, laptops or 3-1-1 compliant liquids when you qualify for TSA Pre✓. Enjoy expedited security screening for travelers departing from the United States with smarter security and a better air travel experience.

We realize this contradicts the aforementioned No. 1 point, however every now and then it’s okay to step back from the game — don’t take these vacation rounds of golf so serious! Request a set of rental clubs and just have fun! And you never know, sometimes people relax and play the best round of their lives with rentals.
