Re: pga tour partners club

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.

Re: pga tour partners club

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.

Re: pga tour partners club

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.

Re: pga tour partners club

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.

Re: pga tour partners club

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.

PGA Partners club?

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.

Re: PGA Partners club?

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.

Re: pga tour partners club

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 .
