Here at Golf Club Brokers, we send hundreds of clubs each week, so we have plenty of experience with shipping golf clubs safely. Unfortunately, we’ve received some clubs that were not properly protected for shipping. All too often some of the clubs arrive to our facility damaged, and these scratches & dents are not a result of UPS! The majority of the time, the clubs arrive damaged because they are packed poorly by the sender. We stress the importance of “adequately packaging items” to all of our customers, but what does this really mean? How does one adequately package items?
Are you interested in buying a set of golf clubs? There are many things to consider when it comes time to start looking for a new set of clubs. This article will primarily focus on why it is a good idea to buy used golf clubs instead a brand new set. As you probably know, a set of latest and greatest golf clubs can cost thousands of dollars. If you have the money and the desire, please feel free to go all out. However, here are a few things to consider for those of us on a budget.
You might be wondering, “Can I sell my clubs on eBay myself?” How hard can it be? Selling items successfully on eBay isn’t as simple as creating a user account and uploading a picture of your iron set. This misconception is common! Selling clubs (or anything) on eBay can be labor intensive and expensive. While it is possible for you to make a few extra bucks by eliminating the middle man, you should consider three questions before creating an eBay account:
- Is it worth my time?
- Do I know the true value of my golf clubs?
- Will I be able to compete with professional sellers?
When you start looking for a new set of clubs, it is usually a good idea to trade in your golf clubs to offset the purchase of your new set. There are a few options when you get ready to trade them in. You could try to sell your clubs to someone locally through Craigslist or some other classified ad. Another option is to try to sell them yourself on eBay or another auction site. Finally, you could trade in your golf clubs for cash or store credit at a local or online store. Below we will discuss these options to help decide what would be best for you.

Preparing For The Round
We all know time is precious. If your schedule (and wife) allows you to golf more than one round a week, then you should consider yourself lucky. Most of us hackers pull into the parking lot, check in, and go straight to the first tee. If we don’t get stuck in traffic and arrive with a few minutes to spare, we stop by the putting green for 3 or 4 quick putts and we’re good to go! Then we use the first 3 holes to loosen up, get the pace of the greens right, and get our mind on the game. By the fourth hole, we’re finally ready to play. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but didn’t we start keeping score after the first hole? Let’s face it, the game starts before you get to the first tee. CONTINUE READING
