Are you considering taking up the great game of golf? Or do you already play golf and you’re looking to upgrade your clubs or just looking for a high-end driver? Either way, you know that being a golfer can get to be really expensive really fast! But did you know that countless people take up golf, invest tidy sums in very expensive clubs and then might play a round or two and never take their clubs out again? If you want to save a small fortune on quality golf clubs then you need to learn about the great deals waiting for you with pre-owned golf clubs.
When shopping around for pre-owned golf clubs, there are a few things to look for when evaluating clubs.
For irons, you’ll want to take a look at the grooves on their faces. They should still be briansclub distinct. If they are worn down to be almost smooth, then the club is no longer serviceable and is not worth considering. A few scratches on the sole of the irons won’t affect their play, but it does take away from the cosmetic appeal of the club. This will lower the value of the club and you may be able to pick up a perfectly useable set of quality irons, such as Ping, for a song.
For drivers and fairway woods, check the face, sole, and crown for wear and signs of abuse. An expensive driver or wood that has been dented and badly scuffed isn’t a good deal no matter how low the asking price.
Grips can be replaced, but you’ll need to consider the additional expense and effort to have this done.
So where do you find used clubs and club sets? You can search you local newspaper classified ads for pre-owned golf clubs as well as locally, online at Craigslist.com.
However, an often overlooked, but really great place to look for literally thousands of pre-owned golf clubs is right on eBay. The selection is almost limitless.
