GlobalGolf is one of the finest internet golf sites available. I have purchased used golf clubs several times, and could not be more pleased with each purchase. The clubs have exceeded my expectations each time. Highly recommended.

Love shopping at GG. Always able to get an excellent deal, 30 day playability guarantee is unbeatable! Free shipping is delivered by 3rd business days. At other retailers that costs you upwards of $8. This is how online shopping was meant to be.

At our core, we are a golf company that caters to golfers interested in enhancing their enjoyment of the game. We cherish the moments when customers use GlobalGolf’s insight and selection to discover their product wishes, then hit that new driver a little farther, use that new putter to sink the clutch putt or arrive at the first tee looking just a little sharper wearing that latest golf fashion. We like to consider the resulting smiles a reflection of your satisfaction of the products and services that can be found at GlobalGolf.
During the late 1990s, the golf equipment market experienced unprecedented growth worldwide. More aggressive product cycles, new club technology innovation and increased interest in participation created an expanded market for new golf equipment and options for golfers of all skill levels. Many golf shops and off-course retailers throughout the country saw the opportunity to take used golf equipment on trade as a way to offset the cost of new products, thereby helping golfers bridge the gap and trade up to better equipment. While this trend helped new product sales, it left many golf retailers with thousands of dollars of used products without an effective means of selling them. In addition, the industry’s major product manufacturers annually created large volumes of preowned golf clubs by placing trial products in the market through their sales representatives and various types of product demonstration programs.
In 2001, GlobalGolf founder Ed Byman assembled a highly respected golf industry team with an innovative concept to develop a market for these preowned golf clubs. Over the years, by leveraging its many industry contacts around the country, the team became a trusted liquidation solution for the trade-in products.
In reaching out to technology savvy golf enthusiasts and the growing eBay marketplace, GlobalGolf rapidly grew to be the leading online seller of preowned golf equipment. In 2006, we moved beyond eBay by launching our own proprietary website, GlobalGolf.com. Within a few years, we had created a market for the acquisition and sale of preowned golf equipment.
From our roots in preowned products, GlobalGolf now holds a unique position in the industry by offering the discerning golf consumer a wide array of golf equipment. Representing all the major brands in golf, GlobalGolf.com is the only major golf e-commerce site where consumers can view new and preowned equipment side by side in a unified navigation window. Our site has a complete selection of quality golf products for golfers of all abilities, from the low handicapper to the eager beginner.
