Hello everyone! I would be traveling to Singapre next week and would like to buy Titleist golf clubs and possibly an Adidas Tour 360 ATV shoes. Would like to ask where I could possibly find these items. Thanks a lot in advance for your help

Go to orchard road at Far East Shopping Center, next to Wheelock Place. Try shops like Vinc, Golf Leisure, MST and Golf Simply for titleist stuff.

If still cant find, then you take underpass, cross the street, go to isetan dept store at shaw building.

Adidas golf shop is also at Mandarin Gallery, Orchard Road (meritus mandarin)

However, if you want to demo the clubs at the range. Take taxi to Marina Bay Golf Club driving range. A MST outlet is there. Since its bit out of central, I would google to find their phone numbers. Call first to check if they have stock of your model/size.

Well I'm from Manila and unfortunately there is no official distributor of Adidas golf shoes here. Also, Titleist products here are very expensive

Thanks pushslice. I think Far East Shopping Center is near Orchard Parade where I will be staying so it would be very convenient for me to go there

Afaik, far east shopping center got more discount than isetan
Although in isetan all the items are in 1 section, so no hassle to in-out many stores to check the availability
The downside is most of the stores in far east shopping center cant givie you gst claim form

Dont forget that upon buying clubs, you usually can bargain for extra gloves , balls etc.. On top of the discount! Have a good stay in Singapore!!

There are many reasons why Singapore is the Go to Place

#1) Its cheaper than in Manila. Sometimes 30 to 50%

#2) if you buy enough we could get a tax rebate @ the Airport

#3) Its cheaper to travel to Singapore than going to US of A

HyBriD,

If I check the clubs in at the airport, could I still get a tax rebate?

there is a GST rebate counter before you check-in for claiming tax refund for bulky items which you intend to check-in.

Hello Sir,

I think we can get a tax rebate when you reach a certain amount of purchase.

I forgot how much is it?

My wife knows, let me get back to you later on these one

Just keep your receipt/ proof of purcahse

Hi guys! bounce

I know there is a few places selling 2nd hand clubs.
1) Fareast @ orchar
2) Creative golf

Just to check if there is any other places to visit for used clubs?

Thanks a lot for the suggestion push slice. I went to Far East Shopping Center (it was very near Orchard Parade which was convenient for me) and I was able to buy a Titleist staff bag from Golf & Leisure at 25% off retail price.

Yes, only invoices amounting to S$100.00 and above are eligible for a GST refund

The GST by right is 7%. However, like many other countries, they are subject to admin fee. So you may end up between 4-5% refund.....

the funny thing is the admin fee is expressed as a percentage of the value of the GST refund rather than as a fixed amount.

i dont see how processing a $10,000 claim would be more administratively tedious (or costly) than processing a $2,000 claim.
