In Alicante & Palma
Words: James Greenwood
ClubstoHire.com are to open shops in airport terminals at two of Europe’s most popular golfing destinations.
The club rental company already has 23 locations worldwide, and is now adding Alicante and Palma, Majorca to its established airport terminal shops in Malaga, Faro and Lisbon as part of a six–figure investment to meet demand.
The first new shop is due to open at Alicante airport in April and will serve thousands of travelling golfers visiting the Spanish coastal region every year. The expansion programme continues with the company’s fifth terminal outlet opening in Palma to cater for an increasing number of British, German and Scandinavian golfers choosing to play on the island.
“Alicante has been one of our most popular club rental destinations in recent years and Palma proved exceptionally busy last year,” said CEO Tony Judge. “No other club rental company is investing in locations at the same level as ClubstoHire.com and the new shops will create up to ten jobs to boost the local economy.”
Alicante-Elche airport handled 12.3 million passengers last year (up 16 per cent on 2015), as an estimated 130,000 golfers took advantage of low–cost flights, warm weather and up to 35 excellent local golf courses in nearby Murcia and Valencia. Palma de Mallorca airport is the third largest in Spain and in close proximity to 20 golf courses across the largest Balearic Island, including the top-ranked Son Gual and Alcanada resorts.
