I was a member for a year or two a few years back. It's not a scam. It's a legit club. But like most other clubs, they send you stuff to buy. If you join don't bank on getting a new Nike Driver to test. So many people join expecting to get a new driver or a set of Callaway clubs. It doesn't happen. Well it does to a few but not everyone gets a new driver or new set of clubs. When I was a member I got to test some $5 swing trainer thing that I didn't even know how to use. I also got a Brush-T just for reviewing a video. It was something they mailed me hoping I would buy it and the 100 other tapes in teh collection. I didn't though. I wasn't into golf that much when I was a member so I let me membership expire. I'm not sure the $18 or $24 was really worth it though. You could always do a trial membership and see if you like it though.

LOL, I just got the same thing today. I was nominated because I take golf seriously. I don't think anyone nominated me, they would of said that I take it too seriously.

Oh, I put it in the round file.

That's about what I got to test. It was a weight on one end of a string and a stick (for lack of a better word) that you would turn to raise and lower the weight on the other end of the piece of string; this was to strengthen your wrists and fingers to "improve your golf".

I'd been a member for at least two years, maybe even three before I ever got anything to test and when I got the "weight-string-stick" I felt like I'd been had since this was IMO something that was only tenuously related to golf. I never even tested it, just threw it in the garbage since, at the time I regularly worked out with Cybex machines at a gym. But, I'm sure some people get really good things to test. The items tested and results are included in the magazine and IMO I got the worst thing they ever tested. I never even got a brush-tee. Just that lousy weight/string/stick.

Do I get to join the club of guys who got nominated?

Seems a bit scam-ish to me too so I decided to come here and see if anyone was talking about it.

It's ashame.. I was really considering it.

I know where they got my info.. My wife (of all people) misspelled my name when she ordered my gift membership to Golf Digest.

You guessed it... The "PGA tour partner" stuff came with that same misspelled name.

If it's only $12 a year, (like it says it is) I might do it anyway. Seems like a fair price for what you get out of it..

That depends on what you get out of it. I'd rather spend $12 on something I want. It felt scam-ish to me too.

I joined back in January (i dont remember the fee but it wasnt enough for me to worry about).

So far I have gotten 2 sets of balls to test (one 3 pack and one two pack). If you want to go through the hassle of saving receipts and mailing them in you can get $40/year back in greens rebates ($10 each quarter). I sent one in in April to see if it was legit and I got my $10 check a few weeks later.

Also you can get into one PGA event free each year and a magazine sent to you each month (which I will admit I dont have the time to read).

The biggest problem with the club is they send videos where you can either send it back postage paid or buy the video. They say if you send it back it wont happen again.

Overall I would say I will probably renew, but I wont sign up for a lifetime membership due to lifetime members having to call for the yearly benefits that yearly members seem to get when they renew.

I was in it for a bit, its kind of annoying on what they send you, they give you a bag tag, aand some stickers, its really not worth it.

I only did the trial.

I keep getting mail from the PGA Partners club stating if I RSVP now I can test free golf equipment. The club is $1 a month to join. Is this legit? Is anyone else here part of the "Club"? What are your experiences?

The reason I ask is because of the old saying...if it sounds too good to be true then it must be.

I have been a member for a few years.... even before I started golfing because I wanted the free equipment etc.

After I paid my membership I received the welcome package as stated... if I remember correctly there were alot of knick knacks (bag tag, window sticker, tour tickets, etc) and a travel bag.

I started receiving equipment to test about a month later... first item was the new Maxfli Noodle that was released. I think the second thing was a glove or spikes. I have never received anything more than smaller items... but some of them were very nice. I do know people that have received putters, hybrids, etc... but never a full set of irons or a driver.

I think it is a neat thing to have... if I remember correctly it was started by a former pga player.

I have been a member for a year. I joined the lifetime version. Something like $19 a month or so for a year. They sent me one nice Nike bag with my name on it for being paid in full.

I joined as a life member too, but now I cannot find their website.  The website I did find golfpartnersclub . com is NOT it.  Does anyone know the correct address?

http://www.partnersclubonline.com might perhaps be it, but the program may have also folded as that site doesn't load and this page is badly broken: http://www.pgatour.com/registration/?master_product=642&end;=%2Flogin .

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.  
    • Difference in These Putters Besides Price?
      My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts! Someone beat me to it, but there are obvious differences in the appearance of those two putters. The most obvious is that the alignment marks don't align! And the mark on the instep (if that's what it's called), looks like it was hacked in with a machete or maybe a cold chisel. Never mind that it looked like it laid in a barn for 10 years! Hey, I'm a senior and retired, so I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, but I refuse to buy cheap crap just because it's cheap. I remember a radio show I heard years ago where the discussion was about value vs cost. A woman called in and said she didn't have a lot of money, so she couldn't afford to buy "cheap". The host asked her what she meant. She replied that buying cheap stuff that does not perform and wears out early is more expensive in the long run than buying top quality goods that do the job and will last! Admittedly, they weren't talking golf equipment here, but the idea is the same.
