Information And Advice On Purchasing Used Golf Equipment

Aug 17, 2007
Golf is a great sport enjoyed by millions of people around the world. It is also one of the world's most difficult sports, and for people with a tendency to become frustrated when things don't go how they wanted them to, golf may not be the right sport for you.

If you've never played golf before, or played only crazy golf or only played on a small sized pitch and putt course with a seven iron and a putter, a game of golf on a full sized course is a different ball game. Not only do you require more golf clubs, but you require more patience, and also more energy to take you around the full course.

So if you're going to play on a full sized golf course and don't have any clubs, what do you do, you can either:

A: Go to your local golf shop, purchase the most expensive clubs you can find and when you find out you can't play like Tiger Woods with them wish you'd have bought some cheaper ones.
B: Rent some clubs or borrow some from a friend.
C: Buy some reasonably priced used golf equipment from somewhere.

If you have never played golf before and are not sure you'll like it, it is recommended that you borrow a set of clubs from a trusting friend who will need much reassurance they will come back in one piece. If however you have played golf before and you like the game, you may wish to consider purchasing some used golf equipment.

Simply because you are playing on a full sized golf course, this doesn't mean you need the full amount of clubs. For beginners, a 3 or 5 woods, a 3 iron, 5 iron, 7 iron, sand wedge and a putter should suffice. As for other equipment a second hand golf club bag with a shoulder strap, or if you prefer, a set of wheels will be ideal for a days golfing.

When purchasing second-hand golf clubs it is important that the face of the clubs don't have many dents and deep scratches in them as this can affect the course of the ball. Also be sure to check close to the grip and the head of the club on the shaft to ensure there are no signs of rusting, and finally, look down the clubs like a telescope and twist them to ensure they aren't bent or warped.
