With the colder weather setting in, you may find yourself missing the game of golf, as it is not as easy to hit up your favorite course with so much snow on the ground. The winter months are extremely popular travel months for avid golfers – it is a great excuse to continue to practice the game you love while also enjoying a nice, relaxing vacation. But, the most popular question with travel, especially via plane, is whether you should ship your clubs, or check them onto the plane? 

There are a lot of different benefits to shipping your clubs, which is generally an easier and sometimes cheaper route to take. Here are a few: 

  • It is a simple process. Shipping your clubs is a very simple, easy process, especially when you go through golf shipping specialists, who do this for a living! Your clubs will be picked up at your door and dropped off wherever you choose. 
  • You know your clubs are in good hands. When you check your clubs at an airport, you cannot be certain whether they will get damaged or how they will be handled. When you choose to ship your clubs, you know they are in good hands, and the process is generally insured. 
  • It is easier on you physically. Lastly, if you choose to ship your clubs, you can forget about lugging your clubs through security and around the airport – your back will be pain free!
