Taylor Made Golf

TAYLOR MADE GOLF Visit Site

Features:

Selection includes about 110 clubs

Free shipping on all orders if you create a user account

Returns accepted within 30 days on new/unused items

As one of the most recognized names in the golf industry, TaylorMade has been helping players reach their potential since 1979. Their tour players include Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, and Jason Day; when shopping for your clubs on the TaylorMade site, you can see exactly which golf clubs these pros use and buy them for yourself.

Of course, if you're looking to buy your clubs directly from TaylorMade, it should be no surprise that you won't find any other brands! Fortunately, their selection is wide even though they only carry TaylorMade clubs - you'll still have more than 100 to choose from. Be sure to create a user account; this will entitle you to free shipping on all orders, which is a nice way to save a little bit of "green" before you hit the green.

One thing we really love about the TaylorMade site is the Club Selector Tool; you'll find it under the Shop drop-down at the top of the page. You'll need to select "Find Irons", "Find a Driver", or "Find Wedges"; from there, it'll ask you to specify if you play right- or left-handed, your handicap or typical score, typical course conditions, and other details of your average playing experience. You'll then get a recommendation based on your unique profile.

And, if you wish, TaylorMade also has a custom shop; we were given the option to customize at the end of the Club Selector Tool process. You can create the exact golf clubs you like, all the way down to choosing the shaft material and manufacturer. Personalization options are also available for golf balls, bags, and hats.

Now, if you're familiar with TaylorMade, you probably already expect the price tag. If not, be prepared to spend anywhere from $200 to over $1000 for a single club. You might be able to find what you need for a little less by looking at the Sale category, under the Shop heading; we found a number of clubs discounted by $100 or more when we shopped the TaylorMade site.

This retailer offers a few unique ways to make your purchase more affordable. First, TaylorMade has an upgrade program named The Turn, which allows you to finance your clubs with 12 or 24 equal monthly payments. At the end of that period, you can either continue to pay for another 6 months and then own your clubs outright, or you can upgrade to the latest equipment and continue with a new payment plan. Alternately, you may be able to trade in your clubs and be issued a store credit towards your next purchase.

Another plus is that the prices on the TaylorMade site were the same as or better than what was offered by retailers offering a variety of clubs. In other words, you may save money buying directly from TaylorMade - especially with the free shipping and financing options - rather than trying to find a lower price at a golf warehouse-type store.

In general, the only reason TaylorMade doesn't rank higher in the list is because many golfers want a range of products, not just one specific brand and its accessories. Especially for new golfers, TaylorMade may be too pricey for starting out - but for those who are already dedicated to the brand, this could be the perfect place to shop.

Golf Outlets

GOLF OUTLETS Visit Site

Features:

Selection includes approximately 125 clubs

Shipping starts at $6.99

Returns accepted within 30 days of purchase, minus 20% restocking fee

Golf Outlets of America has one mission: "to provide golfers in America and around the world the best possible value golf equipment". Along with golf clubs, they also offer apparel, accessories, bags and more.

Selection at Golf Outlets is quite limited. At the time of our review, they were offering approximately 80 different clubs for men, both right- and left-handed. In women's clubs, they only offered right-handed options, and only nine different clubs at that. For juniors, the selection was less than two dozen. The available brands were also slim: Confidence, Forgan, Palm Springs, and Lind were the only brands, with no familiar names like Callaway or Titleist.

Golf Outlets also doesn't seem to have any particular expertise when it comes to the sport. They have no brick-and-mortar locations, no helpful blog offering insights on equipment or technique, and no opportunities to order custom clubs.

You probably won't save money shopping at Golf Outlets, either. We found no options for free shipping, although their fine print does say that some items may ship for free. Shipping starts at $6.99 for UPS Ground. We also found that other online retailers of golf clubs tend to have Golf Outlets beat; unfortunately, Golf Outlets doesn't offer any kind of price match that would help them be more competitive with other sellers. Finally, while you can return your purchases within 30 days of your order, you should expect to pay a 20% restocking fee.

As we could see in the store's URL, Golf Outlets USA is operated by Shop247, which has an A+ rating as an accredited business with the BBB. However, we weren't quite so impressed with the customer complaints we found that referred to poor quality of items received (both through the Golf Outlets site and that of Shop247), difficulties contacting customer service and getting an acceptable resolution, and so forth.

With so many retailers of golf clubs on the market, Golf Outlets fails to impress. You're more likely to find what you need - and at better prices - with one of the higher-ranked businesses in our review.

Continued from above

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!
