  • Pro Tip: How to Buy Used Golf Clubs

    Updated: Aug 03, 2021
    Pro tip Used Club Buying Guide

    Buying new and used golf clubs is always an investment, but it’s an investment that’s worth it if done correctly. New-to-you golf gear can drastically change your game for the better without breaking the bank.

    Imagine walking into a store, fully staffed with PGA Professionals, and finding an impressive selection of pre-owned golf clubs. You can demo some of the newer golf clubs by taking them home for a couple weeks, or if you buy on the spot, you have a month to decide if they fit in your bag. Plus, to make your new set of golf clubs even more affordable, you can trade in your current set and use those points toward your next purchase, essentially giving yourself a sizable discount.

    If you think that sounds too good to be true, you’re mistaken. GlobalGolf does all of the above, with the additional benefit of doing it all online. That’s right, no need to leave your couch to find the perfect used golf clubs for you. GlobalGolf is hands down the best place to buy used golf clubs.

    Here’s a deeper look into why GlobalGolf is the fairy godmother of buying used golf clubs.

    Find the Right Used Golf Clubs for You with GlobalGolf’s USelect™


    Having too many golf club choices, especially used golf clubs, can be overwhelming. From choosing between golf brands and certain models, it’s difficult to figure out where to start.

    That’s why the PGA Professionals at GlobalGolf created USelect™. By answering a series of short and intuitive questions about your golf game, you will receive a PGA Professional-curated list of the best used golf club recommendations for you. New and used golf clubs from a variety of brands will appear as suggestions, but you can easily filter out the new golf clubs.

    Sample questions include the following:

    • What’s your scoring average range?
    • How far do you hit a 7 iron (also answered in a range format)?
    • What type of ball flight do you prefer (high, medium or low)?

    Our PGA Professionals have cracked the code and narrow down all those overwhelming choices to exactly what you’re looking for. We also know used Callaway golf clubs and used TaylorMade golf clubs tend to be the most popular purchase, so we have a large selection of both waiting for you. Whether you’re interested in a used TaylorMade driver or prefer another brand, GlobalGolf’s USelect™ will list all your best choices for you.

    Bonus Pro Tip: you can use GlobalGolf’s USelect™ to find the right golf balls for you, too!

    Another perk you’ll notice as you research is that GlobalGolf has a certification process for used golf clubs. Nowhere else will you find the reassurance GlobalGolf delivers by thoroughly vetting each golf club to ensure the condition is worthy of resale.

    Not only does GlobalGolf weed out unplayable golf clubs, they also accurately categorize each club’s condition. You can buy used golf clubs in Mint, Excellent, Very Good and Value Condition -- anything considered Poor Condition is deemed unplayable.

    At GlobalGolf, you can be confident you are getting the best value when it comes to new and used golf clubs. You will have all the data you need to make an informed decision.

    Buy Used Golf Clubs with Confidence with GlobalGolf’s UTry® and 30-Day Playability Guarantee

    Buying golf clubs is a huge step, which is why we understand taking the plunge can be daunting. Now that you’ve narrowed down your used golf club list even more by researching, you’re either ready to invest in your game or you may still need a little more reassurance.

    However you’re feeling, GlobalGolf is here to help. If the used golf club(s) you’re interested in has “30-Day Playability Guarantee” listed in the details of the product page, that means you have 30 days to test out your purchase. If you like it, keep it -- you already bought it. If you aren’t fully satisfied, you can return it in the same condition, no questions asked.

    Another option that will boost confidence is using GlobalGolf’s UTry® program. While mainly delegated to newer golf clubs, you can demo golf clubs for sale from the same brands that you’re researching. Each golf brand has its own feel, so by demoing a new Callaway golf driver, you will get a better feel for the used Callaway driver you’re thinking about buying.

    Starting at just $25 for 14 days, you can demo golf clubs when, where and how you want; you can then return the clubs with no shipping cost (or buy them). GlobalGolf’s UTry® is the simplest and safest way to demo golf clubs.

    Trade in Your Golf Clubs for Credit Towards Your New Set of Golf Clubs with GlobalGolf’s UTrade-In™

    Looking at used golf clubs already decreases your price point, and trading in your current set of golf clubs will make them even more affordable. Check out GlobalGolf’s UTrade-In™, where you can calculate how valuable your golf clubs are. Translate those points into credit towards your next purchase.

    The best time to trade in your golf clubs is typically before a new model is released. However, if you’re looking to buy golf clubs as summer begins, there’s a good chance those new models have already been released; in that case, the sooner you trade in your golf clubs, the higher their value and the more credit you will receive.

    Buying used golf clubs can be a stressful process, which is why GlobalGolf offers these different services and guarantees to help you buy with confidence and full satisfaction. If you have any questions about USelect™, UTry®, UTrade-In™ or about specific golf clubs, we’d love to hear from you! Our staff of PGA Professionals are here to answer your emails and calls.
