A new service for online golf club rental for group travelers has launched in Florida. GolfClubsAway.com offers rental of Nike or Callaway clubs online for free delivery to hotel rooms or event locations. The company has offered a 20 percent discount to corporate account groups of 20 or more and to destination management companies.
Meeting planners are given a code number assigned to the event so that attendees can log on to the company website and select a set of clubs, a sleeve of balls and tees. The clubs can then be left at the hotel for pick-up by GolfClubsAway. The service is currently available in Florida's Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, with an Orlando location coming soon.
Shipping golf clubs via FedEx or UPS costs around $100, according to Golf Vacation Insider. GolfClubsAway rates are $35 per day for a rental of Nike clubs and $45 for Callaway clubs.
