How to Find Golf Gear Online

Cyberspace offers a plethora of great golf pro shops selling golf-related gear. Every major manufacturer (and even some unusual minor ones) has a presence on the Web, so don’t hesitate to check out such sites as Callaway, Nike Golf,, TaylorMade Golf, and Titleist.

These sites specialize in bringing you good prices on brand-name new and used products:

  • eBay’s golf section: Not only tons of golf equipment, but also clothing, carts, games, and memorabilia, not to mention golf-themed humidors, candles, hip flasks, and plenty of other stuff you never knew existed.

  • Dick’s Sporting Goods Golf Shop: A vast array of golf gear, much of it at bargain prices. A full-service chain that has stores throughout the East and Midwest as well as Texas, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada, Dick’s is where you might find a hot new driver for $100 less than you’d pay elsewhere, or a dozen premium balls for half the sticker price.

  • For more than 25 years, has helped golfers around the world buy equipment at low prices. The site even dedicates a page to feedback from loyal customers.

    With great prices on all the top brands and an online golf expert for recommendations, questions, and prices, is hard to beat. The site also provides links to the Web sites of every manufacturer it carries.

  • Golf Galaxy: One of the biggest online marketers offers a simple guarantee: “Never undersold. Period.” Golf Galaxy also offers competitions on the Golf Galaxy Tour (“open to all golfers who normally score 95 or less on 18 holes”) and even has its own Director of Golf, a PGA professional.

  • Edwin Watts Golf: The site for the popular Edwin Watts stores in the southeastern United States offers deals on all sorts of gear, plus a newsletter and a golf-club leasing program.

  • Planet Golf: Founded on the notion that golfers don’t have to wear “golf” clothing. It’s a unique site where you can even watch the company’s cool TV commercials. Planet Golf sells hip links apparel for golf dudes and dudettes surfing the Web. Heck, it sure beats knickers.
