Tips on how to sell your golf clubs

If you’re a golf enthusiast, you know that golf clubs can be expensive. Whether you’ve upgraded to a newer set or just don’t play as much as you used to, you might be wondering how much your second-hand golf clubs are worth and how to go about making money from them. Luckily, there are many options for selling your golf clubs for cash.

What are my clubs worth?

The value of your golf clubs depends on several factors, including the brand, age, and condition. Golf clubs from top brands such as Titleist, Callaway, and Ping tend to retain their value better than lesser-known brands. The condition of the clubs is also important; clubs with scratches, dents, or other damage will be worth less than clubs in excellent condition. Therefore, newer clubs are often worth more than older ones, as they tend to be in better condition. 

How to sell used golf clubs

There are a number of different ways of going about making money from your second-hand clubs. Regardless of how you choose to sell your golf clubs, it’s important to provide detailed descriptions and photos. Be honest about the condition of your clubs, including any damage or wear and tear. Buyers will appreciate your transparency, and it will help you avoid any disputes or returns down the line.

Online

The most common way to sell your used golf clubs is online. There are many websites and marketplaces where you can sell your golf clubs, including eBay and Gumtree. By selling your golf clubs online, you can reach a larger audience of potential buyers and hopefully get the best possible price. However, this does require a bit of time yourself as you will have to research how much you can sell them for, clean them, upload them to these sites and deal with all the questions and requests for more info buyers often want.

Social Media

Social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram are another good place to advertise your second-hand golf clubs. If your Facebook friends and Instagram followers are keen golfers, you will be guaranteed to generate interest among them. Facebook even has a dedicated selling platform, Marketplace, where you can upload your clubs so that anyone can see them, not just your friends. So if your Facebook friends aren’t interested in golf, don’t worry – you can still advertise on social media to like-minded people.

Dedicated reselling platforms

If you’re looking to get cash for your golf clubs, consider selling them to a golf club reseller like us here at Cash Fore Clubs. These companies specialise in buying and selling used golf clubs, so they have a good understanding of the value of different clubs. By selling your golf clubs to a reseller, you can easily sell golf clubs online and get a fair price, without the hassle of listing and shipping your clubs yourself.

Word of Mouth

Sometimes word of mouth is all you need, and if you let your golfing friends know that you are looking to sell your clubs, some of them might be interested. Similarly, your golf club might be willing to display your clubs or an ad showcasing them to the rest of its members.

Car Boot Sales

If your clubs are particularly old or you’re not looking for much money for them, another easy way to flog your golf clubs is at a car boot sale. However, if you’re only looking to sell your clubs and nothing else, it would be better to try other methods.

Trading in your clubs

In addition to selling your golf clubs, you can also trade them in for credit towards new clubs. This can be a great option if you’re looking to upgrade your set but don’t want to spend a lot of money. Many golf retailers offer trade-in programs, and you can also sell your clubs to resellers for store credit.
