We have just finished the new site for the world largest golf hire provider. We created the design in partnership with block5design in Galway one of our preferred agencies. The site comes from over two years development while the company was rapidly expanding from 1 to 16 locations, The system checks stock in real time across all locations to ensure that there is no double booking or stock issues. This is very busy site and the custom built central management console controls all orders, stock, financials, agents and affiliates. The programming was using CakePHP and html5 and we used Twitters Bootstrap framework for the cms. The site uses some of the latest technologies to give the users and great experience and easy to order system.

Clubstohire.com wins Digital/Online Startup of the Year

Congratulations to clubstohire.com for winning Digital/Online Startup of the Year – at the Vodafone Startup Awards 2012 ! See full list of Winners here .

Digital ideas engineered and programmed the full web enviroment for clubstohire.com as well as bringing them to #1 position in Google for the majority of their keywords across Europe.

Clubs to Hire picked up the Vodafone Online Start Up of the year at the awards ceremony on May 24th at the Burlington Hotel Dublin.

The category is strongly contested and is a real shot in the arm for the Dublin based Company.

Chief Executive Tony Judge said ‘We were delighted to be short listed for this award and to win it is just fantastic. We have invested heavily in our IT and golf product and this is true recognition that people are appreciating what we are doing’.

Clubs to Hire now operates at 12 European locations which are Antalya, Alicante, Murcia, Gran Caria, Tenerife, Gibraltar, Dublin, Malaga, Edinburgh, the Isle of Man, Lisbon and Faro.

The service is proving immensely popular with travelling golfers who are, otherwise, faced with prohibitive airline baggage charges and the hassle of lugging clubs to and from airports.

The business is on target to save its customers €1,000,000 on excess baggage charges during 2012 and we hope to open in another 4 European cities over the summer months.

Recently, Ryanair increased its charges for golf bags to a minimum of £/€100 per return flight, while, before the end of last year, Air Berlin raised its golf bag carriage charge to €100 return. And, with the majority of European carriers now charging upwards of £60 return, hiring a set of high-end clubs from ClubstoHire.com makes enormous economic sense while also offering peace of mind.

A broad equipment range is offered from just €35 per week, with options available from TaylorMade (including the R11S driver and the new RocketBallz), Callaway, Wilson and MD Golf; all clubs are offered – left or right-handed, ladies and men’s – and hire is available from just one day to a full four weeks. For those wishing to travel extra-light, shoe hire is also available.

The service couldn’t be easier to use – just order on-line ahead of travel and pick up the hire set at the destination.

■ Bookings for all of ClubstoHire.com’s 12 stores can be made online at www.clubstohire.com.

AWARD-WINNING CLUBSTOHIRE IS HAILED IN HAMBURG

Digital ideas created the web application and handles the SEO and online marketing of clubstohire.com and are delighted that they won this award.

Paul McGinley’s golf club hire operation, ClubstoHire.com, has won the ‘innovation’ award for ‘best service’ at the golf industry awards in Germany hosted by the prestigious Golf Magazin.

The annual ceremony, held in Hamburg last Friday (February 17) attracted more than 300 people and was given extensive media exposure in Germany.

Ireland-based ClubstoHire.com has been trading only since July 2010, when it opened its first outlet at Faro Airport – and since then it has opened six further stores with more planned for 2012 and has saved more than 25,000 customers an estimated €900,000 on airlines’ excess baggage charges.

MicGinley was unable to attend the event as he was competing in the Avantha Masters, in New Delhi, where he ultimately finished tied 14th. But his fellow ClubstoHire director, Tony Judge, was on hand to pick up the award.

He said: “We are thrilled to receive the award as Golf Magazin is truly representative of the German market. It is a great fillip to us to know that German golfers appreciate our service and that we were up on stage with some of the biggest names in golf such as TaylorMade and adidas.

“We will not rest on our laurels – we will continue to provide the best possible club-hire service for travelling golfers and we will also continue to expand to ensure that ClubstoHire.com operations are available in as many golfing destinations as possible.

“We anticipate that 2012 will be another good year for us as we have several new store openings already scheduled and are in discussion over several more. We’re fighting a David vs Goliath battle against large airlines who continue to increase their carriage charges for sporting goods, but like David we believe we – and by virtue, golfers – will win in the end.”

A broad equipment range is offered by ClubstoHire from just €35 per week, with options available from TaylorMade (including R11S and the new RocketBallz), Callaway, Wilson and MD Golf; all clubs are offered – left or right-handed, ladies and men’s – and hire is available from just one day to a full four weeks. For those wishing to travel extra-light, shoe hire is also available.

The service couldn’t be easier to use – just order on-line ahead of travel and pick up the hire set at the destination.
