I became a lucky owner of about 24 of their golf balls when a "friend" (I got to get him back someday) cleaned out his golf room.  They are "ok".  I play "soft" in general and mostly :bridgestone:e6. My response overall is "meh", not totally bad but, for me and my strokes I would not buy them.  (I also don't play one of the :callaway: softs for the same reason.)

As one who has heard many such pitches, I have taken on a few approaches.  With some companies, I go to the fact that I speak very fluent German and I can go into a hard to understand dialect of that language as well.  Or, if I am in a pissant mood, I will talk to them as if I am a lawyer going over every point in their ad.  Keep them on line in both cases as it ties up their sales figures. Usually they hang up on me!

A lot one can do if they are retired and have time.

I'm forwarding all my solicitor calls to you. TIA!!

All of the threads on Warrior Golf are pretty old, but the internet is replete with horror stories about these scumbags. Their clubs are garbage, and they've recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which was accelerated by a Florida court ruling that they bilked an elderly man out of over $1 million over the past decade. 

Unfortunately, I'm a member at a club in California owned by Warrior for the past five years. They subsequently took a classic Ted Robinson design and ran it into the ground. The good news is that the roughly 3,000 homeowners in our gated community voted last August (by 78% to 22%) to authorize our HOA board to pursue the purchase of the golf course and restaurant. The sale was proceeding nicely until Warrior's bankruptcy filing, but recent developments again look promising. Hopefully we'll have our course and restaurant back in competent hands by August or so. Wish us lick! The best part is that the bankruptcy court has removed Warrior from any involvement in club operations, and they've designated a management company to oversee operations until this is resolved.

In the meantime, Warrior continues to try to lure unsuspecting golfers into ordering their "custom" clubs. CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!

Sorry to hear about your course.  I'm not surprised that Warrior ran it into the ground.  They seem to be run by people who were born on third base and think they just hit a double.  

Notice how many one-post-only accounts there are singing the praises of Warrior.  Hmm...

I bought a 60* wedge from them once but have avoided them like the plague ever since. The sooner they go away the better.

They own 15 golf courses, each of whom are now in the hands of the bankruptcy judge. What would be funny if it weren't so pathetic is that the Warrior owner (Brendan Flaherty) and his flunkies all fancy themselves to be great foosball players. A visit to Warrior's and Flaherty's facebook pages bears that out. Maybe if they'd focused less on foosball and more on golf they wouldn't be in the predicament they're in.

I had a set of their 52,56,60 degree wedges for a while.  There was one thing that they were great for...these are the only clubs that i have ever snapped in frustration.  It was so liberating to be free of the Warriors. 😀

This is a follow-up to my 5/29 post. Well, at long last, we have survived the cancer that is Warrior Golf. Finally, the bankruptcy court has approved the sale of our community golf course to us...well, our HOA, to be specific. We've been subjected to Warrior's incompetence and antagonism for over 5 years, but it's all behind us now. 

I urge anyone who's even thinking about buying any clubs or balls (or whatever) from them to not do it. Once you've bought anything at all from them you can count on being continually harassed by their "sales staff". The internet is full of consumer horror stories involving Warrior. They brag about their money back guarantee, but good luck trying to return anything to them. This is the golf company from hell!!!

OK, now I feel better. Seriously, though, these guys are bad news. Avoid them like the plague.

Good to hear you prevailed. I bought a 60* wedge from them once, which I still have but never use. Whenever I see an “offer” from them now I immediately delete it. Though I didn’t have a bad experience personally there have been too many horror stories about them. So I steer clear of them.

    • Exactly correct, and the first Decision on this rule says that the "old" scoring record will be used for someone like @DrvFrShow, who is resuming handicap maintenance after a time away.  The Handicap Committee MAY modify that player's HI if the old scores don't reflect the current ability., If a scoring record exists, it will generally be used.  
    • Particularly when that slow group is a couple of serious A-holes.
    • Not really a good option when the teesheet is packed.  They would have to let every group behind them play through. That's why I ask how many of y'all have marshaled a tough course on a busy day . . . . you will hear every excuse in the book.  One of my favorites was a cigar-smoking, smart-talking older guy who had 3 young bucks in his group.  They had held up a 2-some all day, and at the third visit from me, on the 12th tee, he read me the riot-act with some choice, colorful words, saying it was the course's fault for allowing 2-somes to play.  He said he paid twice what they paid, so he was playing the way he wanted. I went back and talked to the 2-some, a husband and wife, and told them they would have to go around that foursome. Not long later I saw them at their car.  They were not upset, but they quit and came in because they did not want to upset the 4-some. See, that's when  I'd like to be able to pull out my tablet and see if they wanted to re-play at a discount. BTW, some 2-somes, often couples, won't book unless we block the other two slots at their tee time.     Wow!  Never heard of that, no-hole-skipping rule. & funny how some slow groups speed up when you play through.
    • Not sure about the other two, but I'm not technically allowed to do that. Mind you, nobody would have caught me if I did. One of the many rules we sign off on with a City of Dayton, OH privilege pass includes not skipping holes. For better or worse, I tend to be rule follower. I suppose given the layout of the course and my being on foot, it would have been a bit awkward anyway. We make the move, they speed up and we hit the next tee at the same time.
    • My instructor tells me that the more golf I play, the more I need to take lessons, not just to get better, but to make sure I don’t develop any bad habits unknowingly. I play 4-5 rounds a week and see my instructor every other week for swing checks. I have bad days on the course and will get frustrated - I usually stop golfing and see my pro right away instead of trying to figure it out myself.  Do you have anyone you are working with? I find it beneficial to have lessons regularly. I see it like a car tuneup - car is running fine but you still get an oil change/service regularly just to make sure things are doing well. Same thing with golf.
