Players new to the world of golf sometimes have hard time choosing the right time and the right product to buy. But the fact is, even though they know which golf clubs are the best, even experienced golfers have hard time predicting the best time to buy golf clubs. Some say it’s the Black Friday and christmas sales, but i personally don’t agree. Sure, December is golf’s off season and there are usually tons of deals on golf gear, just like everything else, but that comes with sacrifice of having newest model of golf clubs. Thing is, giant golf manufacturers like Callaway and Wilson sell the current models of golf clubs for cheap to clear the stocks and make space available for newer models. They usually announce newest golf clubs shortly after winter is over. But if you don’t care about having newest golf clubs and all that, it’s good to keep in mind that when new golfs come out, price on current (previous) line reduces pretty considerably. Manufacturers usually unlist the products from Amazon and other online retailers and don’t supply them to brick and mortar golf retailers either, so you’ll have to look for them on eBay. But be cautious, there has been lots of accidents when someone bought a golf club and it turned out to be fake. There are few golf clubs in particular which tend to be faked, so google around to ensure validity of your purchase. Buying golf clubs on eBay can be surprisingly cheap, i personally managed to buy newest slightly used golf clubs for half the price it actually costs. And it didn’t even show marks of use or anything. And even though it’s pretty rare, you can find awesome deals on golf clubs on Craigslist as well. Craigslist is simpler, and usually used by people who aren’t registered on any other selling platform online.
But you don’t need to have newest line of golf clubs if you’re just starting out. Buying good affordable club sets might be the best way to go, because you don’t want to spend too much on starter golf clubs – you’ll replace them soon anyway.

But it’s noteworthy that people selling on Craigslist and eBay usually don’t have cheap options for shipping, so considering Amazon and many other golf retailers have free shipping option, it’s smart to add up the cost of both – shipping and product and compare which one is best. eBay and Craigslist also don’t have lots of reviews, in fact, they rarely have any, so it’s hard to expect good customer service from the seller and check if the quality of golf club stands up to your standards. I think GlobalGolf is the best place to buy used golf clubs, and Amazon for new lines of golf clubs.
