Congratulations to the team at

I am pleased to announce that we were awarded the winner of the inaugural ‘HSBC Golf Business Community Award for Innovation’ at The HSBC Golf Business Forum in Abu Dhabi yesterday (Wednesday 30 April).

The award was presented at The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa as part of the three-day HSBC Golf Business Forum.
We edged out 89 other successful companies to the award, including manufacturers, software producers and business developers. A group of distinguished global industry experts including 8-time Ryder Cup star Sam Torrance selected the Dublin-based company as the most impressive in terms of its track record in providing an outstanding service to golfers and enabling more people to play the sport on vacation.

“It’s an honour to be the first winner of such a high-profile global award and be recognised by leading figures within the golf industry,” said Tony Judge, CEO of ClubstoHire, With the help of now European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley.  “We started the business to help make golfing holidays more convenient and less expensive, and after recently expanding to locations such as Cape Town and Marrakesh, we’re continuing to do everything we can to make this happen for golfers,” added Judge.

“It’s incredible how much the business has grown in the space of just four years and the level of interest continues to grow amongst the golfing population,” said ClubstoHire ambassador and investor McGinley, who originally played a crucial role in negotiating with brands like TaylorMade to sign up to the service. “The idea of offering rental clubs from €35 for a week has proved to be an extremely innovative one and I’m pleased it’s helping more golfers to play the sport in different locations.”

Last year, ClubstoHire supplied a record 40,000 sets of clubs to travelling golfers and re-launched our website to cope with the demand. We also introduced a ‘Guide to the Algarve’ – a free magazine given to every Faro customer to point them towards the best golf clubs, restaurants and places to stay in the region.

In 2014, we added 1,000 more of the latest sets from leading brands like TaylorMade, Callaway, Mizuno and Wilson Staff, while we launched launch Golf Life Travel digital magazine that aims to help travelling golfers when booking trips to Portugal and Spain.
