McGuinness had just finished playing in a ClubstoHire golf day that celebrated the achievement of McGinley becoming European captain for September’s contest, when she was surprised by her fellow Dubliner with a brand new set of TaylorMade golf clubs and bag.

“Meeting the European Ryder Cup captain and personally receiving a new set of clubs from him was an unbelievable experience,” said Barbara, who became the 125,000th customer to have booked a set of clubs through ClubtoHire when she visited Faro a month earlier. “I love travelling to play golf and after booking my Portugal trip through ClubstoHire, I can safely say I will be using the service again because of how easy and cost-effective the whole process was from start to finish.”

ClubstoHire CEO Tony Judge commented: “It was fitting that Barbara became our 125,000th customer at Faro, where ClubstoHire set up its very first rental shop with the help of Paul McGinley back in 2010. The company has grown significantly since then by adding 20 other locations that are helping golfers book trips to some of the best golfing destinations across Europe and Africa.” – which has saved golfers an estimated €4m in airline baggage charges over the last four years – was recently declared the winner of the ‘HSBC Golf Business Community Award for Innovation’ at The HSBC Golf Business Forum in Abu Dhabi.
