ClubstoHire to open at Edinburgh airport
June 6, 2011 – the business that provides travelling golfers with cutting edge equipment rental – will open at Edinburgh airport later this month.

The Ireland- based outfit, of which Ryder Cup hero Paul McGinley is a director, is still in its first year of trading, yet this is the fourth outlet it has launched. The others are at Faro, Dublin and Malaga – and more golf-hub destinations are scheduled to follow.

Tony Judge, a director of, said: “Edinburgh is the sixth busiest airport in the UK with more than nine million passengers passing through it each year. It is the gateway to dozens of great courses in the region and an ideal venue for our fourth location.

“Charges for carrying golf clubs even on domestic flights can still be exorbitant and the concept was designed to alleviate that burden on travelling golfers. And I can’t imagine anywhere travelling golfers would want to visit more than the Home of Golf.”

Three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington is the latest big name to praise As a staff player for Wilson, Harrington encouraged the manufacturer to join the growing list of top companies whose clubs are featured in the scheme. And subsequently Wilson Golf joined TaylorMade, Callaway and MD Golf, in the ‘stable’ – ensuring customers receive the latest top-of-the-range clubs when hiring.

The service, which offers considerable savings and peace of mind that clubs won’t be lost or stolen, has proved enormously popular. With budget airlines charging up to £80 return for club transit, offers a considerable saving and affords the opportunity to rent a set of the latest clubs, from a variety of top manufacturers, from just €35 per week.

All clubs are offered – left or right-handed, ladies and men’s – and hire is available from just one day to a full four weeks. And the service couldn’t be easier to use: simply order on-line ahead of travel and pick up the hire set at the destination airport.

Since the service’s launch last year, customers have enjoyed a combined saving of more than a quarter of a million pounds. And with several more European golf destination hubs scheduled to open by the end of the year, golfers and look set to make excess baggage charges a thing of the past.

The Edinburgh store is scheduled to open on Saturday, June 25. Bookings for Dublin, Malaga, Edinburgh and Faro can be made online at
