Austad's Golf

AUSTAD'S GOLF Visit Site

Features:

Selection of approximately 400 golf clubs

Free shipping on orders over $99

Returns accepted within 20 days, minus 20% restocking fee

Want to "Play Better and Have Fun"? Do you like shopping at family-owned businesses? If you answered "yes" to both of these questions, you may be interested in buying your golf clubs at Austad's. In business for more than 50 years, this South Dakota-based retailer aims to bring golf's best products to its customers - at the best prices.

Austad's hopes to earn your business with their "Triple Guarantee": service, fit, and low price. Like some of the retailers we reviewed, they allow customers to try out clubs and return them in used condition if they're not a good match. However, Austad's does limit that period to 20 days (compared with 30 days offered by competitors), and you will also have to pay a 20% restocking fee. Also, your return will only be an exchange or store credit, not a refund.

If you should find a lower price on your golf clubs at another retailer, Austad's will match the price before you place your order or refund the difference if you make the match request within 14 days of your purchase.

So, how should you go about finding the right golf clubs for your game? Start with one of three options: Shop by Type, Shop by Player, or Shop by Brand. Whichever one you select, you'll find a range of options on the left side of the page, to help narrow down what you need according to these criteria:

  • Category
  • Manufacturer
  • Price
  • Size
  • Bounce
  • Flex
  • Grind
  • Hand
  • Length
  • Loft
  • Model
  • Shaft
  • Color

Once you've selected a golf club that interests you, you can add it to your wish list or add it to a list to compare with other products. Be sure to choose your options from the dropdown boxes (for example hand, loft, flex, shaft).

Austad's has a solid reputation: an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and numerous positive customer reviews that compliment the company for quality service, competitive pricing, and following through on their Triple Guarantee when needed.

Although we'd like to see their playability guarantee changed to match up with their competition (such as a longer period of time and no restocking fee), Austad's does a great job of keeping customers happy with a broad selection of golf clubs, price match guarantee, and overall attention to their customers. We recommend them for your next purchase of golf clubs.

Callaway Golf

CALLAWAY GOLF Visit Site

Features:

Selection includes around 130 clubs

Shipping is free on any order

Returns of new, unused equipment allowed within 30 days of shipment

Since 1982, Callaway has sought to provide golf clubs and related gear that is "Demonstrably Superior and Pleasingly Different". Consisting of four main brands - OGIO, Odyssey, Toulon Design, and Callaway itself - the company has had hundreds of tournaments won by pros using their equipment, including Phil Mickelson, Michelle Wie, and Henrik Stenson. And, Callaway's famous Great Big Bertha driver was named "the greatest club of all time" by Golf Digest.

Using the site is easy. Starting with the Products tab, you can quickly find your way to the pages for Drivers, Wedges, and other clubs. Not sure what you need? No problem! Each category of club has a Selector Tool right at the top of the page; answer a few questions about your style and typical course, and you'll be guided to the best choices for your particular player profile. We really like how each club comes with customer-written reviews, so that shoppers can tell at a glance what other golfers have to say about the real-world performance of Callaway's clubs. The reviews specify the accuracy, feel, quality and distance, along with a profile of the golfer him/herself - so that you'll know if the reviewer has a profile similar to yours (age, level of expertise, handicap, usage frequency, and so on).

Also, under the Products heading, you'll find another great feature Callaway offers: the Trade In! Trade Up! Program. Believe it or not, your trade-in is not limited to just Callaway brands. You can trade in up to $2500 in equipment each calendar year, which goes a long way towards buying new golf clubs.

Callaway is one of the few retailers we found that also offers a rewards program. It's free to join, and you can earn points on your purchases as well as by visiting a Demo Day, interacting with them on their website, and so on. You can redeem your points for assorted Calloway gear, like golf balls, towels, and even stand bags.

Pricing is competitive - we didn't find lower prices on any other site, so along with the rewards program and free shipping on all orders, you'll probably save money buying directly from Callaway than from a general golf clubs retailer.

But, because Callaway only sells their own products, you'll obviously be out of luck if you're looking for brands like Titleist or TaylorMade. This lack of variety may be a turn-off for some shoppers, especially those who like to mix-and-match what's in their golf bag. However, Callaway's reputation and customer perks make them a great choice for people who are loyal to the brand.

Every golfer can benefit from starting with a club fitting: a one-on-one session with a certified specialist who can match the right equipment to an individual's height, swing speed, and average trajectory. For those who don't have access to such professionals in their area, there are even services online that allow golfers to enter their basic body measurements and performance statistics to determine the best drivers, putters, and wedges for their unique style.

If you already know exactly what you need, consider shopping for your golf clubs online. You'll find the very same equipment offered in local pro shops, but often at a significant savings. And, of course, most of these online retailers carry an extensive line of extras, such as bags, balls, shoes and other apparel, making it a time-saving one-stop-shop for all of your golfing must-haves.

When considering the various stores that offer golf clubs, there are several factors to keep in mind as you shop:

  • Product Availability: How many golf clubs does the store carry? Do they offer many different brands or just a select few? How wide is their selection of accessories?
  • Price: How do the prices compare with other online retailers and your local golf shop? Is shipping included? Are there any discounts or membership plans available that could save you a little more?
  • Reputation: What is the business' track record with respect to customer service? Are customers typically satisfied with both the shopping experience and the quality of the golf clubs they buy? Is the company accredited by the Better Business Bureau?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Golf Club stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right golf clubs for your next trip down the fairway!
