Get Your Golf Equipment Today at Worldwide Golf Shops! Savvy golfers have found that online golf stores provide them with a much greater selection and significant savings over local golf equipment stores. Most golf and pro shops are few and far between, have only a limited variety of golf equipment, and often mark up their prices due to high demand from local golf enthusiasts.

If you're looking for specialty golf equipment - for example, if you're above average height or left handed - you probably already know how difficult it can be to find the right golf equipment at local stores. Like many products sold online, golf equipment is generally sold at a discount. This is because of reduced overhead costs, a larger customer reach, and tough online competition.

3 Balls

3 BALLS Visit Site

Return Policy:

Refund if returned unused within 30 days

3 Balls was started in 1998 by two close friends who loved to play golf. You'll find used, like new, golf equipment to save you money at 3 Balls. This is a great opportunity to get quality clubs from makers such as Callaway, Ping, Taylor Made, Nike, Adams and more at a fraction of the cost of new. However, you'll have to be patient if they don't have your exact driver or wedge you're looking for. They also have a smaller selection of new golf clubs to choose from.

3 Balls also sells a varying selection of golf apparel, shoes, bags, gloves and more. Most of the none club related merchandise is new and the selection is generally not as large as those companies ranked higher. The website is easy to use with the selection listed on the top and additional options to narrow down your search on the left hand side. 3 Balls has some nice customer service friendly policies such as same day shipping, free shipping on purchases over $99, and 30 day return policy. Returns are accepted minus shipping if the merchandise is returned in the same condition it was sold. If you need to speak to a customer service representative at 3 Balls you may utilize their Live Help option or call.

Overall, 3 Balls is not as extensive or impressive as the companies ranked higher, but does offer a solid cost savings opportunity if you can find what you're looking for in used condition.

Hireko Golf


Return Policy:

No refunds, only exchanges allowed

Our initial impression with the Hireko Golf website was that it was a little busy and confusing. Front and center on the main page was what looked like a pop-up advertisement for a specific type of club. There was no easy way to close the ad and it appeared that there was information behind it that was blocked. After fiddling with it for a little bit we discovered it was actually a sort of rotating window of several advertisements that would cycle around on its own, or you could cycle through manually. Each one had a “shop here” button if you wanted to purchase the advertised product. We found this approach of pushing a handful of products in this way very distracting. Particularly because when we clicked on the shop here button to view the items advertised on the rotating banner, most of them came up as out of stock.

Moving away from the advertisements, we selected the "golf clubs" link to see what types of products were available. A list came up that included only a handful of brands; none of which are mainstream golf brands. No Callaway, no Nike, no Taylor made, but brands like Nextt, iBella and Hello Kitty (yes, that's Hello Kitty). Even worse there were only a handful of clubs for each of those brands leaving us with a very small selection of unfamiliar brands.

What they do have at Hireko golf is a focus on custom made clubs. You can select from various components such as shafts, weights and ferrules, and have a club built for you. You can also just purchase the components without having them assembled, presumably for customers who build their own clubs. It is possible that Hireko golf might be a good place for someone who builds their own clubs to purchase the components to do so, but this is a very small niche in the golf market.

The shipping rate was advertised as "low 7.95 flat rate" for ground shipping, which was actually higher than most of the other sites we reviewed. Fed Ex 3 day delivery was $14.95 and 2 day delivery was $18.95, also higher than most other online golf retailers.

The return policy was equally disappointing as there are no cash refunds at all for anything you buy from Hireko Golf. They offer a return policy that will give you a replacement product only if you return your purchase (at cost to you) within 60 days.

With a confusing website, lack of selection, high shipping costs and poor return policy, we can’t see any reason to get excited about Hireko Golf.

A large variety of golf equipment to choose from is also key to successful internet shopping. Many online golf equipment stores exist today that can meet the needs of golfers no matter their experience level, from novice to expert. They can provide dozens of brand names across a variety of golf clubs, golf shoes, golf bags and more, because an internet storefront can facilitate a larger, cheaper warehouse to best fit their customer's needs.

However, not all golf stores are the same. Before shopping for your next set of golf clubs or golf apparel, you should consider the following:

  • Selection. Does the website offer a wide selection of golf equipment or is it limited in brands and selection?
  • Prices. How do the golf equipment prices compare among competitors?
  • Return policy. Does the company allow you to return golf equipment for a full refund? How many days do you have to return these items? has reviewed and ranked the best golf equipment stores in business today. We hope these reviews help you find the right golf equipment at the best prices to meet your needs!
