Ship Sticks is a company of golfers, for golfers. We had experienced firsthand the hassles involved with transporting clubs. So we got together with the idea of solving that problem—­and we did.

The mission of Ship Sticks is to provide value-added services to the golf industry, creating a win/win environment for all who participate. It is our intention to make golf travel easier and more affordable, thus increasing the number of participants and rounds played annually.

Ship Sticks LLC (Delaware Limited Liability Company), founded in 2011, is based in West Palm Beach, Florida.
