VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, N.C. (January 17, 2016) - Pinehurst Resort & Country Club has entered into a 2-year commitment to designate Ship Sticks as the preferred golf bag shipping service for the resort.

“Partnering with Ship Sticks is about being customer-centric with a company that is unique to the golf club shipping and travel space,” says Eric Kuester, director of business development at Pinehurst Resort. “They take away the hassle of traveling with your golf bag and eliminate the additional time associated with baggage claim and worry, making it that much easier for the golfer to enjoy his or her time spent at Pinehurst Resort. That’s important to us.”
