Perhaps no industry is better at embellishing the truth than golf. Colorful language and creative marketing is a driving force that never sleeps. Every year there’s a new driver that promises more speed, greater distance, feel and the absolute best sex of your life. New golf balls will go further, stop on a dime and help you get the job of your dreams.
Clubs to Hire promises to help golfers reduce their carbon footprint by using rental clubs once they arrive at their destination. The company claims that reducing luggage weight on the aircraft will lead to less fuel consumption and therefore making the plane more energy efficient and economical.
Aviation is now seen as one of the major polluters, responsible for around 3-percent of the world’s CO2 output and 12-percent of transport-related emissions. The average set of golf clubs weighs around 30 pounds, making Clubs to Hire responsible for saving airlines approximately 1,740,000 pounds of weight in 2019, which is nearly the equivalent of two Boeing 747 aircraft.
Adding to the already attractive prospect of reducing their carbon footprint, Clubs to Hire also gives golfers the opportunity to play with some of the best clubs on the market, offering the latest clubs from TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping, PXG, Mizuno and Wilson Staff.
Clubs to Hire founder Tony Judge said, “It is safe to say that more than three million people fly with their clubs annually – and travelling without them could help both people’s conscience and their wallet. At Clubs to Hire, we are removing the need for golfers to take their clubs abroad, giving them the chance to hire, in some cases, better clubs than they have at home from just €40/$43 USD per week – often less than airlines will charge to take clubs on the plane.”
Launched in 2010, Clubs to Hire now offers clubs in the USA, Thailand, Indonesia, South Africa and five countries across the Mediterranean. Clubs are available for left or right-handed men or women and can either be waiting at the airport or delivered directly to the golfer’s hotel. Clients can also add shoe rental, balls, tees and hats to their order.
