Luggage Forward gets your golf clubs to your destination, making even the most convoluted travel plans simple
Here’s a scenario that doesn’t come about every day, but perhaps you can imagine something similar:
Heading from out-of-the-way Savannah, Georgia to out-of-the-way Lake Como, Italy, with the intention of playing half-a-dozen of the lakeside gems upon arrival.
However, several days of sightseeing in Rome and Venice precede the aforementioned golf dates, not to mention smallish urban hotel rooms, packed trains, and compact taxis. Lugging the sticks from place to place is an inconceivable option.
What’s a Vagabond Golfer to do? It’s simple – use a top-notch service such as Luggage Forward to quickly, easily and reliably get your sticks (or skis, bicycle, scuba gear, etc.) from where you are to where you’re headed.
In my case the clubs were waiting for me at our rented lakeside cottage in a tiny Italian burgh, this after flying to Atlanta, then Rome, then by train to Milan, then by rental car (again, too small to accommodate the rolling coffin that is my travel bag) all the way to sparkling Lake Como.
Luggage Forward makes even the most convoluted travel itinerary that much easier to deal with, particularly if you want your own bag of “weapons” to do battle with the courses you encounter. Or you can take your chances with a dusty, decades-old rental set, if they have them, and get gouged on the rental fee to boot.
The choice is yours, but from where I’m sitting, it doesn’t sound like much of a choice at all.
