Magique Golf - anyone heard of this company?

11 posts in this topic

I received a coupon for a free hybrid club from Magique Golf at a tournament yesterday. I have to pay shipping, but that's it. I don't need the club, and I don't know anything about the company - they could be complete junk. That being said, I'm not opposed to getting it if it will give me another tool to work with.

Anyone heard of this company, or played with their sticks?

I got that same coupon after playing in Myrtle Beach and, since I was looking for another hybrid to put in my bag, I figured why not give it a shot.

Here's a few comments I have about the whole situation:
1. Be aware that the club they are willing to ship you is a steel-shafted club. I prefer my hybrids and woods to be graphite, so that'll cost you another $40.

2. I needed a different grip size... that's another $15.

3. The company was great to deal with over the phone and were very nice and even though I was told it would be 6-8 weeks before my club would arrive, it was there in about 10 days.

4. All that being said, I'm not overly impressed with the club. To me, it has an awkward head shape (looks a little like the Callaway ERC hybrids) and I seem to slice the ball quite easily with the club, despite the fact that I hit my TaylorMade TP (and all my other clubs for that matter) straight with a slight draw. The club has good feel, but after hitting only about 15 balls with, I started to notice an abundance of dings on the face of the club where I hit the ball.

5. Fortunately, my dad ended up being able to use the club so it wasn't a complete waste, but for my money, you're better off finding a used TaylorMade hybrid or something along those lines on Ebay. It kinda seems like this might be another situation of "you pay for what you get."

Thanks for the response! This is exactly what I was looking for. It doesn't sound like this is a club I'd be willing to yank another club from my bag for.

My wife and I got the same coupon after playing in a charity tournament. She needed a "real" sand wedge since the one in her set is pretty much garbage (literally about a 1 inch sole width - looks like a hybrid). So we figured for $30 we didn't have much to lose, and since they let you customize it she could get it shorter and with a ladies flex shaft instead of just buying a used men's wedge at Golfsmith. It took about 4 weeks to get the club (like the coupon said) and we were pretty impressed with it. The grip looks cheap but the club head itself is pretty nice looking. Since I had my coupon as well I ordered a 60 just to play around with (since I didn't have one at the time), and I have to say I like it. Its probably not as good as a Vokey but for something I'll only use a couple times a round and never really hit a full shot with I'm pretty happy. I'm sure the parts are made in China, but at least its assembled here. The club head itself is really nice looking..... and I'll fix the grip this fall when I regrip everything.

My brother gave me a Magique coupon from a tournament.

I selected a 3-hybrid, got a fiberglas rather than steel shaft and ended up paying $65 for the club, including shipping.

Magique guy on phone was polite, and knew his golf clubs. We talked for 20 minutes after I selected the club; he had interesting ideas on shafts, which matched what others have since suggested.

Used this club instead of a 5W in spring 2009 when I reworked my entire set. 3H was pretty good out of medium rough, but had a mind of its own off tee or from fairway. Bought my current 5W later that summer, and it works much better.

Hello, I used to be the graphic artist for this company years ago 2001 - 2004. Im not even certain they do the custom logo clubs anymore. Before it was sold by the original owner, Dan Plunkett, it was a wonderful company.If you have not recieved your club I suggest that you call the tempe location and speak with Karen Meckler. Relatively certain that she is still the office manager there and also a wonderful lady who is devoted to customer service. A simple explanation for your situation is all she'll need. I know for a fact that if you contact her - she will make sure your club gets made, they are made at that location, and shipped to you asap. If she no longer works there, which would be a surprise, please send me a personal email crossedbarsand13stars@gmx.com and Ill put a phone call in for you. As for the quality of the clubs, well, Ive never been a golfer so I really couldn't say. We always had good reviews on our clubs back when I worked for them. but I know alot has changed. Hope it all works out for you. _Mary Smyth :-)
