I usually go with 3Balls, Rockbottomgolf or eBay. For eBay, go with reputable sellers.

The old adage applies: if it's too good/cheap to be true, it probably is.

Not true... I made my cangkul from bits and pieces of old wood and nails I found in my backyard.

For eBay (or any auction site), believe it or not, the prices are "manipulated". Some call them ghost bidders. Hard to prove but not hard to notice. My advice is this: Have an idea on the maximum price that you are comfortable paying for and bid at the very last moment (e.g. 2 mins before close). Take into account shipping to SG which varies from US$40-60.

Buying overseas depends on source and price. Also note that you may wanna add in shipping and GST if your purchase turn out to be more than $400. Another thing to note is golf clubs if you used vpost they do charge a shipping for long clubs.

Not all are manipulated but yes, there is certainly some manipulation out there. This is why I said go for reputable sellers.

I just got a $300+ shipping charge from vPost for a set of irons (7 pieces)! They were supposed to repack it, but then not much difference after repacking (note a charge of $12 for repacking). They claim the box is big (40x38x110), but when I look at the photo of the clubs and box, there is so much empty space in the box! It's been 2 weeks of disputes but no proper answer from them - only excuses.
Any bros in GR had this experience, and can share how you managed to settle such disputes?
Well, just be careful how you ship with vPost.

2nd swing and Global Golf both ship here to Singapore. I have ordered from both and are reputable. Never had any issues with shipping from them.

Must factor in shipping cost (can be high depending on order) and GST if charged. My last two orders were shipped via FEDex and I did not have any duties, GST, or customs charges. Don't know if that is always the case (maybe I was lucky).

7 pcs of iron shipping S$300! Thats quite a ripoff.. Arrow Down Arrow Down
I hv had an entire golf set - 13 pcs - from driver + woods+ hybrids + irons + wedges shipped to Singapore direct from the seller in USA via Courier for only USD90 and that oredi my frens told me was an expensive shipping charge as some do it for around USD60-70

Bro, if you're looking for VRS Driver, I can suggest this EBay retailer Kelley Golf - http://stores.ebay.com/kelley-golf

Prices are pretty reasonable and they ship fast too. I bought my VRS family from them (Driver, 3W, 3H) and ship it via Comgateway. Can always check them out to do a comparison with rockbottomgolf

TGW.com selling for $199.95 + shipping ($48.76). Sound like a good deal.
