Alliance with Ship Sticks

Casa de Campo Resort & Villas announced a strategic alliance with Ship Sticks to facilitate the process of moving equipment for its guests when they visit the world-class golf destination.

By shipping golf clubs and luggage in advance, the Ship Sticks process significantly reduces travel worries, eliminates the need to carry bulky golf bags at airports, waste time in airport check-in lines or baggage claims, pay baggage fees for oversized or bulky items and avoid loss or damage due to handling.

The Ship Sticks service will be offered through a white label microsite directly available to the Casa de Campo resort guests. Additionally, services can be arranged on-site at the property through the concierge and guest service teams.

“We continually look for ways to enrich the total resort experience for our guests, and our partnership with Ship Sticks enables stress-free travel even before arriving in paradise,” says Jason Kycek, senior vice president of sales and marketing.

“We are delighted to begin working with a world-class golf destination like Casa de Campo,” says Nicholas Coleman, CEO of Ship Sticks.
