Home Travel Golf Center: Golfers Flying to Phoenix Can Now Leave Their Golf Clubs at Home

Back to Previous Page

PHOENIX, ARIZONA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2012) - Travel Golf Center introduces a better alternative to traveling with golf clubs - renting high end golf clubs and accessories online and picking them up in Scottsdale, Peoria or at the Car Rental Center at Sky Harbor Airport or McCarron International in Vegas. In addition to affordable pricing, this innovative one-stop shop offers both avid and occasional golfers the benefits of choice and convenience.

The idea for this unique enterprise came as the result of a recent golf vacation to Phoenix. Founding partner, Doug Forbes-King paid $150 in extra baggage fees to fly his clubs from British Columbia. Discouraged by not only the hassle of carrying and checking in extra baggage, but the exorbitant cost, Doug created a solution to this challenge faced by every golfer who visits the Valley of the Sun.

Travel Golf Center rents new or mint condition clubs for almost half the rate of typical executive golf courses. Golfers have three options from which to choose, including pre-stocked Value Bags; or the latest technology from Callaway, TaylorMade and Ping in their Tour Bags and Custom Bags. The Tour and Custom Bags feature clubs from Golf Digest's Hot List. The Custom Bag also allows golfers to mix and match clubs of their choice on their e-commerce website, where "fill your golf bag" has replaced "add to your shopping cart".

When asked if golfers will be interested in renting clubs when so many are particular about using their own equipment, Forbes-King responded, "Because we offer the latest and greatest technology, we have something for every ability, including low handicappers. In fact, renting Hot List clubs gives golfers the opportunity to try out clubs they may have their eye on."

In recent discussions with Fred Barr, PGA, Director of Career Services at Golf Academy of America, Barr indicated, "The concept for the Travel Golf Center fills a void for a golf destination city such as Phoenix. All golfers now have an opportunity to stay and play with rental equipment that suits their specific needs."

The Travel Golf Center website also allows tourists to book tee times online with impressive savings off regular green fees. The shop also sells golf shoes, a complete range of accessories, and golf shoes. They have noe opened in Vegas as well offering the same great quality line up of premium golf clubs.
