How to Get Golf Clubs for Free

Save

Unless you're a professional golfer with an endorsement deal, you probably think you have to pay for your golf clubs. Not true. With a little creativity and persistence, anyone can get free clubs. They may not be the latest and greatest, but if you can stand to play with secondhand clubs, your new set might not be so difficult to get.

  • Ask friends and family. Maybe grandpa George or uncle Ernie has a set of clubs stashed away in the garage that haven't been used in years and would be better off in the hands of another family member. Talk to friends whose kids might have outgrown an old set of clubs.

  • Look online for freebies. Craigslist.org is a great place to find free stuff. Look in your local paper's classified under the "For Sale" category. You'll find a "Free" subcategory where you might find a cost-free putter, driver or a full set of clubs.

  • Go to the grocery. Most grocery stores have bulletin boards in the exits where anyone can post a notice for a week or more. Let folks know you're looking for a set of clubs and hope a generous soul is willing to pass on a club or two to you.

  • Make a trade. You probably own at least one thing you no longer want but someone else might. Set a value on it and offer to trade for a golf club of equal worth.

  • Buy one club, get the second one free -- almost. Many golf club manufacturers run deals in which if you buy one club at the standard price, you get a second one for $1. Although that's not technically free, it's close enough for most folks.

Tips & Warnings

  • Beware offers that sound too good to be true. Some Web sites lure consumers with promises of free golf clubs. These are usually multitiered marketing ploys designed to bombard you with credit card offers and other bogus points of entry to freebies, or to up-sell you once you're in "the program." Don't get taken.
