Is it possible to buy high quality golf club set under thousand dollars?

People say golf is too expensive for anyone other than rich to play, but i have to disagree. I just think that you need proper knowledge and experience to make it work on much smaller budget. When i was a beginner, just like everybody else, i spent more than a thousand dollars on a golf club set that i wouldn’t accept as a gift today. And it’s not just golf experience either, you have to be skilled at saving while shopping. Obvious solution to high expense is buying used products, which usually cost half as much as new ones. But it’s not that simple either – trusted retailers usually don’t sell used golf clubs, so you have to buy them off craigslist on eBay, and quality of the club you’re getting from there, will be questionable, at best. Plus, you can’t try them in person before buying them, which is a big disadvantage, because fitting is one of the most important part of golf club choosing process. If a club doesn’t fit, your golf game will suffer. Even if it is thousand dollar club, it won’t do you any good. So you definitely be careful with buying online.

 Although, despite these flaws, there are few sites that sell high quality used golf clubs, and my favorite one of them is – callawaypreowned.com. It’s official website offered by Callaway brand, which, in case you don’t know anything about golf, is one of the best brands around right now. They are definitely my favorite. Used clubs i got from there have lasted me 3 years so far, and with proper care that i’ve taken of them, i am sure they will perform for another year or more.

 Another good tip for saving on golf clubs is buying last year’s, or slightly older models. It is good idea to go to your local store, try different golf clubs and pick the one that fits you the best. Then go home, search for older models of that club you chose, and buy the best option for the price. Using this method has been pretty handy for me, as i’ve been able to find used beginners’ golf irons for half or third the price of new one. George has explored the topic of buying beginner’s irons further in his tutorial. And these are just as good, they’re just out of golf fashion, because golf manufacturers keep introducing new models every few months. So getting the older model is no big deal, except for rich dudes who like to keep up with new golf club releases. That’s it for today, i hope it was helpful.
