Do you travel with your golf clubs? While thousands of people travel with their clubs every single day, many of them do not bother to protect their clubs from potential harm. Aside from protecting the outside of your clubs, there are a few things that you can do to ensure that your clubs arrive safe and sound.
Unless you can take a bus, car, or train to your destination, you will probably have to fly with your clubs. The problem is that luggage tends to become tossed and damaged during, after, and before a flight. Baggage handlers aren’t exactly known for being careful with cargo, which can translate into damaged clubs.
One way to avoid any damage is to purchase a soft or hard shell golf bag. A soft shell golf bag will provide some protection for your clubs, though a hard shell bag is probably a better idea. Of course, a hard shell bag will cost a lot more, but hey – your clubs are worth it.
Even if you decide to invest in that tougher bag, your clubs could still become damaged during flight. The only way to avoid this is to ship your clubs to your intended destination before you take off. There are a lot of different shippers that will gladly transport your clubs for you, but this doesn’t mean that your clubs won’t get lost.
The one way to ensure that your clubs wind up where they should be is to place a GPS tracker inside of your golf bag. This tracking device will allow you to keep your eye on your bag no matter where it may wind up.
In addition, many different shippers provide real-time tracking of important cargo items, so make sure to ask about this option. Still, you’ll want to make sure that your clubs are safely packed away inside a soft or hard shell bag.
Also, don’t forget that your clubs can suffer from internal damage if you are not careful. During travel, your clubs might bump against each other causing small dings. To prevent this from happening, invest in some good quality club heads.
Chances are that you paid a lot for your set of golf clubs, so why not protect them? Heading off on a golf vacation is a great way to see what the world’s golf courses have to offer. Just make sure that your prized clubs are in perfect shape, so that you can work on your swing when you arrive at your vacation destination.Categories: GPS Tracking Devices , News
