CLUBSTOHIRE.COM, the No.1 golf club rental operator worldwide, has extended its popular service with the addition of two new destinations offering golf club sets more than 5,000km (3,000miles) apart across the Atlantic Ocean.

Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and the Portuguese island of Madeira have become the 25th and 26th destinations in a growing list of popular golfing hotspots, providing a service that has helped travelling golfers save around $4million in airline excess charges over the past five years.

Sets of the latest TaylorMade and Callaway golf clubs will be on offer from €80 to golfers flying into Punta Cana, on the eastern-most tip of the Dominican Republic from November 1, with bookings available online from October 15. After being pre-selected, the full set of clubs will be delivered to the customer’s hotel or resort on arrival and collected before departure.



Punta Cana offers a variety of spectacular courses within a 30-mile radius of the airport, including the Tom Fazio-designed Corales GC and the Jack Nicklaus-inspired Punta Espada - which both rank among the Caribbean’s top ten courses.

“Punta Cana airport welcomed nearly six million international visitors last year and with an average temperature of 30 degrees, it’s a perfect year-round golfing destination,” said CEO Tony Judge. “We’re delighted to open our services in such a leading Caribbean resort and extend our growing list of club rental destinations to 12 countries around the world.”

The Dublin-based company, founded in 2010, estimated that it will supply over 75,000 sets of golf clubs to European travellers this year – including those travelling to Madeira. Golfers can pre-book sets online for Madeira at €50 per week from November 15 and the clubs become available on December 1.



"Adding Madeira to our list of locations is tremendous news for us,” added Judge. “Portugal is a very popular destination for European golfers and we’re delighted that we can offer them something a little different in Madeira, where the Seve Ballesteros-designed Porto Santo course is one of the top attractions.”

The unrivalled ClubstoHire service is now available from one end of the Mediterranean to the other, with Madeira serving as the most western point through to Belek in Turkey to the east. Permanent shops can be found in airport terminal buildings at Faro and Malaga in Spain with sets from €35 per week.

“Not only does the service offered by save on potential airline excess luggage costs and the hassle of moving heavy golf travel bags to and from airport terminals, it also provides golfers with the rare opportunity to trial the very latest clubs from the leading brands,” added Judge.
