Shipping a golf club through the mail is a bit more difficult than sending a letter or magazine. The size and shape of a club requires more creativity for protecting it from damage as it travels. Lately, some companies have been tailoring boxes and shipping materials to fit clubs and make the task easier.

Things you need
- Shipping material
Find a long, shallow box. Cameron Packaging, which sells boxes for shipping golf clubs online, has two versions --- one for single clubs and one for sets. The boxes measure about 4 feet long. You can also try local golf courses or golf stores. They receive club shipments on a regular basis and may be willing to give you boxes for little or no cost.
Assemble the box, if necessary. Many shipping companies, including UPS, offer boxes that feature pre-folds and tabs for easy assembly.
Prepare the club for shipping. Bubble wrap, shrink wrap, foam pellets or even towels can be used to protect the club during shipping.
Tape the box and address it. Boxes designed for golf clubs usually close vwith an outside tuck lid. The shipper can then tape the lid down. Either write the address on the box, or use a shipping label, to prepare the box for shipping.
Take the box to the local post office or shipping service.
