Buying used golf clubs is one of the most common ways to save on golf clubs, but it needs to be done right. You need some shopping experience to distinguish knockoffs from real ones. Also, you’ll need to effectively tell and predict the condition of an item before you buy it. Because, you know, golf clubs are quite bulky, and aren’t very small, so returns can get very complicated. So it’s best for all parties involved if there are no misunderstandings and complications in the process. Online stores and websites also differ in terms of quality of clubs they sell and prices.

 GlobalGolf, which is my favorite, is e-commerce seller of all kinds of golf gear. They sell both new and used golf clubs, and usually have good deals for both, but they’re my favorite store for buying used clubs because of few reasons. First of all, these guys do a lot more to verify condition of a club and check it thoroughly, and that check eliminates chances of getting a knockoff or damaged golf club. But because of that same factor, prices are also usually slightly higher than average. So it’s up to you to choose – if you value convenience and trust in a brand, go with GlobalGolf like i do, but still take few minutes to find out about what other options you have.

 My second favorite is eBay. I know many good sellers on eBay, and if you’re interested, just leave comment and i’ll give the links or names. A lot of good golfers choose to sell their clubs on eBay, because the process of selling used clubs through globalgolf can be frustrating. These golfers want to get rid of the club and collect as much money as they can as quickly as possible, and eBay is perfect platform for that. So, to summarize value of eBay, it’s wider selection for cheaper prices, compared to GlobalGolf. It lacks safety checks, but there are few ways you can determine trustworthiness of a listing and seller. First and foremost, you should look at seller rating. Sellers with high number of ratings and high percentage of positive reviews are usually safe. But still thoroughly check description and pictures, because cases of miscommunication is common. And generally, just use your common sense to weed out the scammers. It’s also worth noting that eBay doesn’t have golf club reviews, so you should consider reading reviews from independent bloggers or magazines. I am a senior, so this is my favorite.

 And the last one, is craigslist. It’s not nearly as fancy as the first two, but it’s still worth checking out. Rarely you’ll find excellent set of clubs nearby for very affordable price. Big plus of craigslist is that it eliminates high cost of shipping big golf clubs.
