How should golf clubs be packaged?
Golf clubs are a pretty high value item, so you want to make sure you do a great job packing them. Always err on the side of caution; the last thing you want is to arrive at your holiday destination only to discover that one or more of your clubs were damaged in transit. This can be avoided by following the packing guidelines below.
If you’re shipping a full set of golf clubs in a bag, it is highly recommended that you purchase a golf travel bag. These bags are designed to offer your clubs maximum protection during shipping. Golf travel bags can be purchased at most golf stores as well as many online retailers.
Even if you have a golf travel bag, you should still wrap each of your clubs with bubble wrap. Wrap them twice to be on the safe side.
The next step is finding a suitable shipping box. Considering the weight and value of the shipment, the box will have to be new and very durable. Select one that is built to carry heavier goods. After putting the golf travel bag into the box, use additional bubble wrap or another type of padding so that bag doesn’t move around. Seal the box with packaging tape; when in doubt, use more, not less.
If you’re sending individual clubs with no bag, wrap them two or even three times with bubble wrap before placing them in the shipping container. There will likely be considerable space inside the box. Fill this with more bubble wrap or newspaper.
Woods and drivers are typically more fragile than irons, so be extra cautious when packing them.
