The travel industry has made a remarkable recovery after facing challenging times caused by the recent pandemic.
Both leisure and business travel are growing similarly, depicting a positive trend in the industry. The year 2022 witnessed a significant boost in international travel by 88%, while the popularity of staycations declined.
The trend towards remote work and digital nomadism continues to grow rapidly. Hotels and golf resorts are strategically adapting their services to cater to the evolving needs of this modern workforce.
Golf enthusiasts can confidently attest to the fact that the golf travel season has extended beyond its traditional timeline.
The travel and golf tourism industries are being reshaped by current trends, which provide exciting opportunities for golf travelers.
In this business environment, I see a huge opportunity to create a new revenue stream for golf resorts, business owners with complementary businesses, or expats living in major golf tourism destinations (e.g., Algarve, Costa Brava, Costa del Sol, France, Italy, etc.).
Namely, to get involved in the golf equipment rental business.
In recent years, there has been a rise in the number of golf tourists who are concerned about the increasing charges levied by airlines for transporting their golf equipment.
Moreover, there is growing doubt about whether the equipment will arrive promptly and safely.
Personally, I find it more convenient to rent golf equipment from a local shop rather than dealing with shipping expenses.
2010, Tony Judge created Clubs to Hire to tackle a long-standing problem. Today, I’m inspired to learn that their golf equipment rental service will be available in 25 locations across 12 countries by 2024. Since the foundation, over 500,000 golf equipment have been rented.
Clubs to Hire – an IAGTO member – will help you to take advantage of these trends. Let me show you how.
Become a franchise partner or a location partner!
The business partner cooperation model is the one I recommend for hotels and pro-shops with rental stock or golf clubs who would like to achieve global reach.
Clubs to Hire has 54,000 members – their contact information is updated regularly and can quickly be activated for the business partner. This will be a great help for you to reach exactly the right people and audience.
Once your location is added to the Clubs to Hire website, it is instantly visible to golf travelers worldwide. Your customers will enjoy a fully automated booking process via this website. You will share the revenue with Clubs to Hire.
With partners like Callaway Golf, TaylorMade Golf, Mizuno, Wilson Golf, PXG, and Cobra Golf, you can be confident in golfers’ interest in the service.
Become a Clubs to Hire Franchise!
In this form of cooperation, you must invest at the start £5,000 and purchase rental stock. The good news is that after 2 years, the expected annual franchise revenue will be between £25,000- £75,000.
By choosing Clubs to Hire, you can rest assured that you will receive the highest level of professional training, guidance (e.g. “Ground Handler Handbook”), and customer service. Their unwavering support is guaranteed, no matter what form of cooperation you opt for.
