Club rental firm ClubstoHire.com has launched a new website after celebrating a record year in 2012.

Last year, the award-winning company kitted out 30,000 golfers with equipment. Since its inception, it has helped save golfers nearly £1m in additional airline baggage charges.

The initial site was launched in 2010 with help from Paul McGinley, a ClubstoHire.com ambassador and investor.

The new site allows golfers to hire the latest clubs from leading manufacturers – including TaylorMade, Callaway, Mizuno and Wilson – from 14 airports across the Mediterranean.

“The new site provides golfers looking to travel economically with a faster, more comprehensive service than the original version, and has a much larger capacity to cope with our growing level of bookings,” said ClubstoHire.com CEO Tony Judge.

One of the first golfers to use the service was Julian Sowerby, an 18-handicapper from Chester.

“I have to say the service was amazing – right from when I logged on to the website and all the way through to getting the clubs in Faro,” he said.

“I’m planning to go to Spain this year and will certainly use the service again.”

ClubstoHire.com locations include Faro, Alicante, La Linea, Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Belek, Edinburgh and Dublin.
