And you thought you had too many old golf clubs in the garage?

Thinking maybe you had a hoarder streak after keeping a few too many old clubs laying around the garage? Think again!

Placed in the Orange County section of Craigslist and updated since, the seller lists just about every conceivable brand as available from the, uh, collection. There is a catch: the buyer must take it all. That's 20,000 clubs for $7,500, which, as the seller notes, amounts to 38 cents a club. The 50 bags mentioned are thrown in as part of the package based on the seller remarks.

The reader who tipped us off to this sale had a friend stop in for a visit and reported that this club collector "had irons everywhere at two houses, two garages, inside a truck (with flat tires) and in a shed out back too. Very remarkable in all my years of collecting."

My wife would kill me if that were my garage...but hoarding is a serious disorder. Ever watch that show Hoarders? It's ruined some people's lives.

Sounds like a good deal. Would be interesting if a First Tee or some group could snag them.

He should keep a long putter outside just to open that garage door with.

Well after seeing that garage I feel much better now. We have a home, that we lease out since we now do the full time RVing thing. When we cleaned the place out, and put stuff in storage was when I found out just how much golf stuff I had accumulated over the years. 

 

I let my oldest Grandson sell most it on EBAY, with the agreement we split 70% for him and 30% for me since he would do all the work. After 6 months of selling golf stuff he gave me $5K in cash for my part. With his part he bought he a Vanagon, and hit the road with a girl friend to see America before heading off to college.

That ad has been on CL for the last 9 months that I know of. I have serious doubts that anyone would buy them, but ..hey, you never know..

That was my first thought too.
