If you just happen to arrive at your Caribbean dream golfing destination without your clubs, many choices exist for renting equipment. Sometimes, even if you have your own clubs, you may not want to damage them by playing on courses that have many rocks. Renting clubs can also allow you to travel lighter. You wouldn’t have to worry about your clubs being damaged during the flight, or pay a hefty price to have them shipped. Some avid golfers never travel with their own clubs for fear that the airlines would lose or damage them.
If you golf at a Caribbean club or a resort course, there will definitely be clubs available for rental, and some places even offer packages. Rental packages tend to be more cost effective if you golf frequently and especially golfing in the Caribbean. For example, a package may cost $100 a week for a full set of clubs or $25 a day. Otherwise, you can pay per round, which amounts to about $20 - $50 depending on the condition of the equipment. Though, if you need more than one set, it would be a good idea to phone in advance and ask about availability and prices on golf clubs or golf game rental packages.
As a downside to renting from a nearby Caribbean resort or country club, you cannot remove the equipment from the establishment after each round, which might inhibit exploring other island locations for golfing. For a more flexible option, find a golf equipment or sporting goods shop that rent out golf clubs. This allows you to take the clubs with you so you can travel to different island courses and play whenever you want for a fixed price.
If you’d like to reserve your rented golf clubs in advance, some companies offer online ordering. Simply enter the amount of time you’d like your clubs and your location and the company delivers the equipment straight to your hotel or golf course of choice. Though, this could become quite costly, as a full set of golf clubs could cost about $40 a day.
