Golf club rental business ClubstoHire has opened new outlets in Alicante and Palma airports to cope with growing demand from golfers travelling to these two popular Spanish golfing destinations.
The two outlets saw over 26 million passengers pass through their terminals in 2016, and that number looks set to increase in the years ahead.
The two additional sites takes ClubstoHire’s portfolio to 23 locations worldwide, including the airport outlets at Malaga, Faro and Lisbon, as part of a six-figure investment to meet growing demand.
“Alicante has been one of our most popular club rental destinations in recent years and Palma proved exceptionally busy last year,” said ClubtoHire’s chief executive, Tony Judge. “No other club rental company is investing in locations at the same level as ClubstoHire, and we look forward to serving our valued customers in our new shops.”
Son Gual, one of the most popular golf destinations in Mallorca, is served by ClubstoHire’s new outlet in Palma
Alicante-Elche airport handled 12.3 million passengers last year (up 16% on 2015), as an estimated 130,000 golfers took advantage of low-cost flights, warm weather, and up to 35 excellent golf courses in nearby Murcia and Valencia. Palma de Mallorca airport is the third largest in Spain and is close to 20 golf courses across the largest Balearic Island, including the top-ranked Son Gual and Alcanada resorts.
The ClubstoHire shop at Faro in Portugal, where the company began its rental services in 2010, is also about to benefit from a major refurbishment as part of a multi-million Euro redevelopment of the airport terminal buildings.
The Dublin-based company is estimated to have saved travelling golfers more than €4.5million in baggage fees since its inception, with rental sets available from as little as €35 per set per week.
It recently invested €150,000 on a new-look, high-speed website to deal with 25,000 monthly rental enquiries for sets of the latest clubs from top manufacturers such as TaylorMade, Callaway and Wilson Staff.
Golfers can go online to pre-select sets of the latest clubs on the market, including a wide choice of putters, which are then either collected from shops in airport terminal buildings, or delivered direct to hotels or golf courses for even greater convenience.
