Ship Sticks announces entering new partnership with GolfTEC

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Ship Sticks, the innovator in golf bag shipping, and GolfTEC, the global leader in golf improvement, have partnered to present GolfTEC students with an easier way to ship their golf bags. Through the partnership, GolfTEC will educate its students about Ship Sticks' white glove golf bag shipping service via the GolfTEC newsletter, web site, its instructors and more.

"Ship Sticks has transformed the golf bag shipping experience with its reliable, personal service," said Steve Bauerle, Vice President, Business Development, GolfTEC. "Many of our students are passionate about golf travel, so we're pleased to offer them access to Ship Sticks' exceptional customer service, which eliminates the stress of transporting clubs and lets them focus on their games."

Ship Sticks' white glove golf bag delivery service ensures a seamless pickup and delivery of clubs from the home or golf club directly to a hotel or desired travel destination. Customers simply complete an online form to arrange for pick-up and delivery at a convenient location. Ship Sticks then monitors the bag's progress along every phase of its shipment. Prices for the service vary based on distance and delivery options.

"GolfTEC students are serious about golf and golf travel. They'll travel across the country to play a great course or compete in a tournament, and they rarely leave home without their own clubs," said Nicholas Coleman, CEO of Ship Sticks. "We believe that Ship Sticks can make a real difference in their golf travel experience and we look forward to building this new relationship with them and GolfTEC."
