Ship Sticks Partners with Reunion Resort and Spa in Florida

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Ship Sticks, a fast-growing golf bag shipping company, announced a partnership with Reunion, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort in Orlando, Fla., to provide golf bag shipping services to resort guests.

"Reunion Resort is a popular destination for group travel and receives golf bag shipments from around the country," said Nicholas Coleman, CEO of Ship Sticks. "Through our unmatched service and technology, we will streamline the shipping process for both resort guests and staff to uphold Reunion's high level of customer service."

Ship Sticks' customized, easy-to-use, micro-site will enable Reunion Resort guests to arrange golf club shipments to and from the facility affordably and risk-free. The company has seamlessly integrated its technology into the Reunion website and tracks all shipments for resort guests. Ship Sticks alleviates the hassle of the shipping process for resort staff and guests, and ensures that both parties are informed about the status of the shipment from pick-up through delivery.

"About a quarter of our business has been golf groups, many of them traveling to Reunion and shipping their clubs," said Kevin Baker, director of golf. "It was always hard to track the clubs for a group because we'd have multiple tracking numbers and even different shipping companies, but Ship Sticks simplifies the process, making it easy and convenient for our guests as well as our employees."
