has COVID changed the way to check golf clubs?

New Arrival

I know that there is a "no-touch" as much as possible because of covid. Can we still check golf clubs?  Does SW have boxes or things we're required to purchase to check them in?

As far as I know there hasn’t been any changes in how to check golf clubs. You can still check them as long as they meet the checked bag requirements for golf clubs.

is there a required box or something that has to be purchased?

No required box. Here's what the airline says:

 

"Golf bag in hard-sided golf bag carrying case provided by Passenger, including clubs, balls, and shoes. Hooded golf bags or golf bags in a soft-sided carrying case provided by the Passenger will be conditionally accepted."

 

Conditionally accepted means "if it's damaged, we are not responsible."

 

Moral of the story: use a hard sided golf bag carrying case.
