I was recently at Palm Villa and Royal Johor CC. I was shocked to find that they were blatantly selling fake stuff, and for what must be a good profit. I wouldn't be surprised to find these being sold at the roadside stalls or even shopping centres in JB, but to find these at established golf clubs is really unacceptable.

In Palm villa, there were fake Scotty cameron putter covers, which looked real, until you look closer to examine the font and stitching. Also, they did not come in the standard scotty cameron packaging. The real thing would probably cost around S$200. They were selling it for RM 180.

In RJCC, i saw the same fake Scotty cameron putter covers. On top of that, the R11s driver headcovers as well as their boston bags also look extremely dubious. I was about to buy some Nike polo tees from the pro shop, but having seen all these fake stuff, i decided against it.

Anyway, just be careful when buying stuff from Malaysia golf clubs.

Haha SC... I mentioned the Scotty covers to my flight mates when I played there recently. Funny how pro shops can sell dubious gear.

yes... I went to proshop in SG and offered a set of Taylormade RBZ for $400 something dollar (which is much cheaper if you buy them separately). All the driver down to irons and putter. After closely looking at the irons, I suspect they are fake. They have a cheap graphic stamped on the iron. Plus I don't remember there is a RBZ putter on the market.

Wah. Which pro shop was this? That's a serious issue. Could they have been second hand clubs?

You are losing your credibility as fast as a piece of shit flowing down stream.. and i doubt unless u can provide any proof.. Ur shit dun stick.

Go learn a thing pr two abt wat is a pro shop b4 u decide to open ur big mouth.. And even if its remotely true, Im sure u must have given the sales guy the impression that ur a dumbshit for him to even try. Go figure..

Innocent until proven guilty. We are not in a position to determine nor have the technical ability to ascertain whether an item is fake or otherwise. Would you be able to differentiate the real m'coy with a very well made fake? I sincerely doubt so.

Now, you make me have my turn at being very CURIOUS. Since you are so good at differentiating, why didn't you excercise your curiosity hormones at the pro shop and clarify the authenticity of the clubs on the spot?

Can you justify gold just by looking and touching it? As Forrest Gump once said My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." ==> IDIOTS!

you cant say that its fake because the price is too cheap. if they want to sell fast, they will take less profit and go for bigger quantity sold.

Haha! Like that example. Like I once saw a fake Adidas sandal being sold at at flea market. But of course it is branded as Adadis. Laughing Anyone who don't know the spelling will fall for it. And then again it was sold at a flea market so no high expectation. pirat
