5 Tips for the Snowbird Golfer

You hate to call yourself a snowbird, but let’s face it, you’re living the life! You’re given the opportunity to travel and chase warm weather year-round. And to a majority of snowbirds, warm weather means more time for golf.

We’ve gathered up the top five ways you can enhance your experience as a snowbird golfer. See for yourself below:

1. Join a Country Club

Joining a country club will be one of the best decisions you’ll make as a snowbird. As a member of a club, you’ll create long-term business and social relationships. Not only will you have access to the golf course; other sports amenities such as tennis courts and the pool will be available for you to enjoy.

Social events will allow you to get out of the house and mingle with other club members. Let’s not forget about the fine dining options that are offered throughout the day. Country Clubs are a rite of passage and we recommend taking full advantage of what they have to offer.

2. Play More

Being a snowbird certainly has its perks. Traveling from the north to down south or out west during the cold winter season provides you with the opportunity to play more. So, do it! Staying active at this time in your life will help you live happier and healthier.


3. Golf with Buddies

Because golfing alone can get lonely, we recommend finding a group of buddies to play with. A friendship made through golf is one of the strongest friendships you can endure. At this special time in your life, creating memories becomes much more valuable. So, why not make them with other couples and friends?

Plus, let’s not forget that golfing in a group provides you with more tee-time flexibility, which is a big plus in itself!


4. Play A Bucket List Course

If you haven’t already, write down a list of courses that you have always dreamed of playing at. Then, make it happen! Set a goal to mark off at least one course a year. Playing these bucket list courses make the game of golf worth it!

5. Travel with Ship Sticks

Traveling to and from your winter and summer house can be a lot. For many snowbirds, driving is the best way to travel. If you are lucky enough to have a car in each location, flying is more ideal.

However, you decide to travel, we all know how difficult it can be to make both your suitcase(s) and clubs fit in your car. Especially when you have it packed with other must-need essentials.

If you fly, lugging your clubs and luggage to and from the airport is exhausting. Waiting in the bag check line and again at the bag carousel when you arrive at your final destination consumes a lot of wasted time. Because the airlines mishandle millions of bags a year, the idea of arriving with a broken club or two certainly is not out of the question.

Ship Sticks is here to help provide a resolution for all of this. Several avid snowbird golfers like yourself, have already adapted to the hassle-free travel lifestyle. Traveling from residence to residence or course to course for them has never been easier!

For others who haven’t, go ahead and give the Ship Sticks service a shot. Once you do, you’ll wonder why in the world you didn’t sooner.

Ship Sticks provides an efficient, affordable and most importantly reliable delivery service for your clubs and luggage. Your items will arrive safely and on-time to its destination.

The service of Ship Sticks just makes sense for snowbirds!
