ARE you looking to change your golf clubs? Maybe you fancy a set of shiny new irons, or you could be looking for a set of second-hand clubs. This is a subject we have looked at before but things have moved on.
You could, of course, head to your local professional’s shop and seek advice, but there are many options open to you.
Here are just a few:
There are thousands of golf clubs for sale on this platform, with everything from brand new drivers, fairway woods, irons and putters on offer to a myriad of second-hand clubs. There was a time when you couldn’t be certain that the clubs you were buying were genuine but eBay’s rules now give you complete peace of mind.
Every Certified Pre-Owned club you buy is backed by Callaway Golf, which means you can shop with the confidence that you are getting the best possible quality. For example, they guarantee that the condition of the club you get will match what was represented online. If you disagree, no problem. Send it back for a 100% refund of the purchase price. And all clubs come with a 12-month warranty.
You can try the clubs for 14 days and return them if they don’t suit you. And they will also take your existing Callaway clubs as a trade-in.
This site claims to stock 25,000 items. Founded in 2012, it claims to be the UK’s largest seller of second-hand clubs. You can also list your clubs for sale. It also shares some handy tips on how to spot counterfeit clubs. Every club comes with pictures and a condition check.
One of the largest retailers in the UK, American Golf offers next day delivery on all orders over £100. There are always bargains to be found here. Head for the sale section, where you will always find some impressive deals. For instance, a set of Honma TR20P irons, which should retail for £1,225, can be purchased for £799. There is bound to be an American Golf store near you but if you know what you are looking for, why not buy them online?
If you are happy to opt for a set of clubs that may not be the latest model, Golf Clearance Online may be the place to visit. Offering next day delivery, you can pick up a TaylorMade Sim 2 Max driver for £299 – the recommended retail price for this club is £449.
Again, we recommend that you head to the Sale section, where you will find a set of PXG 0311 Gen 3 irons for £645, compared with a recommended retail price of £1,289 – that’s a saving of almost 50%. There are also great savings to be made on all other leading brands, including Wilson, Callaway and TaylorMade.

This is an ideal place to go if you are looking for your first set of clubs. There is free delivery on all orders over £30, interest-free finance and a price match guarantee.
