Cheap Golf Equipment

Cheap Golf Equipment

This post is all about where to look for cheap golf equipment when you are on your travels, we all know what it’s like when you are overseas on holiday/vacation, and need to source golf equipment instead of paying over the odds on golf accessories at golf courses pro shops! – we have all been there.

Having to fill out your golf bag with too many golf balls and accessories can certainly add on extra pounds or kilos to your baggage allowance when travelling with the major airlines, so I have looked at varying country destinations which I feel are the main international hotspots for travelling golfers.

So I am going to highlight some stores to look out for when you are either in the United Kingdom, United States, Spain, Australia, South Africa or New Zealand. Flying long haul to these destinations can certainly add additional baggage because we now have to pay to transport our golf equipment.

I have personally chosen all of these golfing stores because I have been fortunate enough to have been able to travel the world extensively playing golf, so I can personally recommend any of the golf store outlets I have mentioned in this post.

All of the stores have their own local identity and they are the most popular golf store outlets with the locals of that country too, so all of them are very professional, the best prices for all of your golfing needs whilst in that country.

United Kingdom – American Golf

The PGA TOUR Superstore is located in Delray Beach, Naples and Orlando so nicely located for all your golfing needs, especially if you are in the Orlando area with the family visiting all of the theme parks in the area.

They also have stores in other states in the United States, but you will be able to see all of their store locations when I leave the store locator link at the end of this short summary.

The PGA TOUR Superstore is as passionate about improving your game as you are about playing it. They demonstrate this every day by providing golf and tennis players alike with unparalleled selection, exceptional services and guaranteed low prices to help you take things to a whole new level – whatever that means to you.

Spain – Sunshine Golf

In Spain there is no national golf retailer so I have included one in the heart of the Costa Del Sol because this has always been the main costa in Spain for unrivalled golf facilities and courses, so I have included Sunshine Golf for your golf store destination if you are in need of anything golf whilst on the Costa Del Sol.

Since opening in 1998, the Sunshine Golf Store has been different. An Independent golf store- free of corporate structures so they can be aggressive with their pricing policies! Very Friendly – and with a distinctly personal touch!

Expansive – with over 600m2 of product on two floors! Competitive – they can now justifiably claim to be the longest standing golf store on the coast as many of their competitors have come and gone, whilst they have adapted to the changing golf market and the needs of their clients. For over 8 years, they have invested a huge amount of time and attention to providing the best possible service and value for local golfers and visitors to the Costa del Sol. They say they are different because ‘they care’ – this is very much the case so well worth a visit on your golfing visit to southeastern Spain.
