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.

Medicus

Return Policy:

30 days minus shipping and handling

Medicus Golf calls their products a "learning system" with a series of golf training aids. Medicus products are said to allow golfers to master the basics of golf and therefore are not built for those that are already experienced at the game.

At first, we were confused with the Medicus approach and then realized the website is similar to that of an infomercial. The risk free language and confusing pricing made this golf website an instant turn off. We didn't like that the listed price was reflected as a percentage of the total cost.

The search functionality is disorganized at Medicus and with a lot of advertisement, it's hard to know where to start. You may choose from a handful of club types which may result in 1 item or several product options depending on how to navigate the website. The accessories are very limited and the apparel included only one Medicus shirt to choose from.

A nice customer friendly feature is the free shipping option. Also, Medicus Golf allows 30 days to return any items minus shipping and handling. If you have any questions Medicus offers a customer service phone number to assist.

Perhaps at 2:00 am this product line would be more convincing on TV then it was via their website. The language, the confusing pricing and limited selection bumped Medicus Golf to the bottom of our list.

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.

Continued from above

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com 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!
