The Faro shop of Clubs to Hire

Clubs to Hire was set up in early 2010 by Irish duo Tony Judge and Gerry Mckernan and is endorsed by European Tour player and Ryder Cup hero Paul McGinley.

Having had enough of lugging clubs to and from airports and paying way over the odds to do so, they decided to take the hassle out of golf travel.

Clubs to Hire allows golfers to hire sets from €35 per set per week. The golfer simply books the clubs on the Company’s website and picks the clubs up at the Company’s shops located at major international airports.

Their first shop opened at Faro in July of this year and they have plans to open another six shops in 2011.

Company chief executive Judge said: “We hope to open at Malaga, Lisbon, Dublin and several other key airports during 2011. We will continue to provide the latest clubs to market and all the accessories golfers need for that well earned golf trip abroad.”

European Tour player and Ryder Cup hero Paul McGinley is also a partner in the business and is very excited about the plans going forward. He said: “It’s one of the simplest and best business ideas I have seen in years. Having being flying my clubs around the world for over 25 years, I know the frustrations and problems that golfers can endure when going abroad. Clubs to Hire removes all that headache; all this for less than €50 a week.”

Judge and McGinley are old friends and studied marketing together in the mid nineties. The firm offers the latest TaylorMade, Callaway and MD golf clubs. They provide regular and stiff shaft options and an array of extras to make the golfing trip more enjoyable.

Paul McGinley concludes: “ is an excellent concept, which allows the travelling golfer complete peace of mind when going on that golfing trip. The service lets golfers enjoy the latest golf technology, while also saving money on carriage costs. The new service also allows golfers improve their personal carbon foot print by reducing weight on the aircraft. I strongly endorse”
