Where to purchase clubs

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

While surfing the web for Titleist AP1 irons with graphite shafts I stumbled upon a store called "golfonlinewholesale.com".

They offer these irons for $349.00 with free shipping.  Has anyone ever bought from here before. It sounds too good to be true.  Thanks

The pictures and description look legit, but the price screams knockoff to me... I wouldn't buy em.

From there About Us Section:

 

Why buy wholesale golf clubs from us ? From 1999, we established a wholesale golf shop in USA, after over 10 years of development, we have sold over 100,000,000 sets of cheap golf clubs. Besides, our wholesale golf shop becomes bigger and bigger and our regular customers has over 100,000. Now we set up a online wholesale golf shop to expand our golf business, and let our regular and new customers easily buy their idea cheap golf clubs. Help yourself in our site, and hope you can have a wonderful shopping experience.

 

Notice all the typos?

"From 1999, we established..."

"...Our Regular Customers Has..."

"Now we set up a online..."

"...customers easily buy their idea cheap golf clubs"

 

Their IP comes back to Secured Servers LLC out of Arizona, I cant find an owner for the domain.

 

There is also no archives of this site available from before april 2011 which is a bad sign, they were probably only set up recently.

 

Stay away Id bet they are pedaling fakes.

I did notice the mis-spelling and also seen a picture of a Ping iron with Ping spelled backwards on it.  I have to believe that these are fakes or a site that just takes your credit card info.

Don't walk... RUN from that site.

That site is so bogus its almost comical, id almost consider reporting them to their service provider for violation of intellectual property law.

"Any questions, please contact us: golfonlinewholesale.service@gmail.com"

 

Gmail.com?  I would think a reputable seller would have an email address with a provider better than a free Google mail account.  The misspellings and phrasing has China written all over the web site.

 

I Googled the phone number on the "Contact Us" page, and.......

 

http://www.ripoffreport.com/sporting-good-manufactures/on-line-golf-wholesa/on-line-golf-wholesale-com-on-d44e3.htm

 

It also looks like there are numerous other "wholesale cheap golfs equipments" website that are virtually identical to this one. 

 

As some one said earlier..... run, run away!!

Talked to my Ping rep today and he said that 93% of club websites are knock offs (obviously excluding tgw, golfsmith, etc.)

post #12 of 23

I love these websites for comical value.

 

"All clubs 8% off crazy sale"

 

Most fun you can have is log into their online chat and ask them strange questions

real

post #17 of 23

Dick's is a legitimate place.  They buy directly from the manufacturer.  Their Callaway clubs are the real deal.

 

Funny story about Dick's... my ex-wife was looking for some sort of sports thing and tried to go to their website.  My daughter told me "don't just type in dicks dot com".

Okay good.
