Finding the right combination for used golf clubs

Golf has experienced unparalleled growth over the last three years, and it seems that daily-fee courses are continuously booked from dawn to dusk. But getting a starting time is not the only difficult part of the game. For those new to golf, that first purchase of equipment can look daunting.

Pre-owned clubs can be the answer for those who have experienced sticker shock when looking at the latest technology in the stores or browsing online.

“When you add new adopters to the game, the initial investment to purchase clubs can be intimidating,” says Dave Hunt, president for Global Value Commerce, which owns, an internet golf retailer. “So, finding some more economical, perfectly functional prior generation clubs can lessen the burden when you’re first putting together your bag.”
