Hi everyone! I will be heading to NYC end Oct. Was wondering if anyone has recommendations on where to get golf equipment when I'm there. Thanks!

Edwin Watts & Golfsmith?

Or, order stuff online and have it shipped to your hotel for collection. Typically, shipping within the continental US is free or relatively affordable Smile

Yes yes... golf stuffs are way cheaper in US. I would suggest you buy an entirely new set there... you'll come back very very satisfied, especially after comparing to local prices

Golf Stores in Manhattan:

New York Golf Center
131 West 35th Street
(Between B'way & 7th Ave.)
New York, NY 10001
tel: 212-564-2255

Golfsmith
641 Lexington Ave
Manhattan, NY 10022
tel: 212-317-9720

Alternatively, if you are driving, can take the 2hr drive to Connecticut where the state is tax-free I believe.

Do a search online for the nearest Golf Galaxy store near you....






But I have way more stuff to see and do in NYC other than buy golf equipment so dun neglect the touristy stuff. Wink

I've been to both above mentioned store. Personally, i prefer Golfsmith.

Inside Golfsmith, there's like 3~5 bays, all equip with LaunchMonitor.
And beside the bays, there are bags of demo club...driver,hybrid,fairwoods,irons...etc
Nothing like the proshop in SG.

But i actually bought a Cobra driver New York Golf Centre and hand-carry back to SG,
as it was nearer to the hotel i'm putting up with. Smile

You should try the PGA Superstores in Texas or Georgia. 8-10 bays of LM and indoor practice bunkers and chipping green too. The putting green is like the size of 1/2 of GH taka. Looks like a golf Wal-mart in its size.

CT still has sales tax. Tax free state has to be New Hampshire, but not many golf shops... Sad
