New Equipment/Retail Stores
If you are thinking about buying a new set of clubs then two places to start are the club tests and reviews from:
Golf Discount: I have used this site numerous times and have had very good service. Never a problem with shipping and a very easy site to navigate.
Edwin Watts: Another great site with quality equipment, good service and an easy site to navigate. They also have certified pre-owned golf clubs.
Golfsmith: Another quality company with good service and good recommendations.
3balls.com: No personal experience but have heard good things.
Best Sources for Used Equipment
EBAY: If you don't know EBAY then you have not lived. Remember, it's usually an auction so let the buyer beware and read the seller reviews.
Golf Club Exchange: Different from "Golf Club XChange", this is an auction site focused on golf equipment. I think the quality of the clubs are a little better because they seem to attract the more serious golfers. Contains an equipment blue book so you know if you are getting a fair price.
Callaway Pre-owned Golf Clubs: I don't swing Callaways, therefore, I have never personally used this site. It does come highly recommended from those who are loyal Callaway players.
Edwin Watts Used: I have never used the pre-owned portion but have had good success with the new equipment from this store (see above).
