Clubs to Hire Expands in South Africa

ClubstoHire.com, Europe’s leading golf club rental company, has extended its award-winning service to the African continent with the introduction of a pick-up service in the increasingly popular tourist destination of South Africa.

From today, Cape Town becomes ClubstoHire’s 17th rental location. A partnership has been formed with well-established Neil’s Transfer Services based at Cape Town International Airport – Africa’s third busiest airport – to offer travelling golfers the chance to have their clubs personally delivered and then picked up from just €35 each set per week.

The airport is situated 20 kilometres from downtown Cape Town and caters for visiting golfers playing at some of the most spectacular golf courses in the world, such as Royal Cape, Fancourt, Pearl Valley, Atlantic Beach, Steenberg and Westlake.

“This move into Africa shows just how far ClubstoHire has come in three years,” said Tony Judge, Chief Executive, who has spent a similar amount of time living and playing golf in South Africa. “More and more travelling golfers from northern Europe and Scandinavia are visiting South Africa at a time when eight European Tour events are staged there on exceptional golf courses and in great playing conditions.”

ClubstoHire – which offers the latest clubs from TaylorMade, Callaway, Wilson Staff and Mizuno – boasts sales growth figures of more than 40% for this year, as golfers appreciate the convenience of the service coupled with the chance to trial some of the best clubs on the mar

The ambitious company estimates that it has saved golfers more than €3 million in airline baggage fees since its launch in 2010. This year it has rented out clubs to a record 40,000 golfers and upgraded its website to cope with the increasing number of golfers using the service. Every customer receives a ‘thank you’ note from brand ambassador and Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley, whose family uses the service.

Other ClubstoHire locations include Faro; Lagos (Algarve); Lisbon; Malaga; Murcia; Alicante; Girona; La Linea/Gibraltar; Palma in Majorca; Tenerife; Gran Canaria; Belek; Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus; Isle of Man, as well as Edinburgh and Dublin.
