The Cheapest Way to Ship Golf Clubs: Travel Guide

Since 2012, Ship Sticks has remained committed to helping traveling golfers find the cheapest way to ship their golf clubs. Whether you’re looking to check off another course, a snowbird headed to their second residence, or venturing out for business, shipping your clubs ahead of time will enhance your trip from the get-go. 

Checking Clubs vs. Shipping

In 2019 alone, U.S. airlines collected $5.76 billion dollars in baggage fees, up 18% from 2018. As airlines find ways to gradually increase pricing for carry-on and checked bags, your once reasonably priced ticket is nearing double the value initially paid. 

Some airlines, such as Delta, restrict the contents inside of your bag, limiting the number of shoes to one pair. Any rain gear, clothing, and windbreakers are prohibited. And, if shipping golf clubs in a soft-sided travel bag, you better have the silver pen ready to sign away any liability for incurred damage.

Likewise, JetBlue limits the number of golf balls inside to 3; a very unreasonable number, even for a scratch golfer.

Luckily, Ship Sticks offers the cheapest alternative to traveling with your clubs. With two size options to choose from, you’re able to select the option that best accommodates your needs. The ‘Standard’ size golf bag is comparable to a stand bag that most traveling and weekend golfers utilize, whereas, the ‘Oversized’ bag is proportionate to a staff bag, similar to what tour players use.

Due to the number of clubs shipped annually, Ship Sticks is able to offer the cheapest rates for shipping golf clubs. From domestic to international golf travel, the all-inclusive price runs much cheaper than competitors, even airlines. 

Even though Ship Sticks is partnered with FedEx, UPS, and DHL,  carrier rates are more expensive than if you were to go through Ship Sticks directly. This makes Ship Sticks the most reliable and cheapest alternative to checking bags.
