Hi all

Just wanna hear what most will do with those old but useable clubs that aren't popular anymore? For eg those old callaway big bertha drivers, irons, etc. These are golf clubs that even Creative Golf may not (speculative on my part) let you put on consignment there. So just dump them??

Cheers

If they are too old to be sold, maybe you can give your used golf set to those who want to start playing golf. Pay it forward, so others can also partake in the joy of playing the sport.

Lim,

I thot of that too but nowadays the new clubs are so cheap, they can even buy 3/4 years old clubs at $200 or less. Most of the newbies would rather buy than use my 10 years olf club.. haaaaa.. perhaps too spoilt for choice...

Probably I was more of a cheapskate and started playing with hand-me-down Ping Eye irons rather than buy myself a new set. Smile

I have quite a few too and am thinking of giving them away in return for small donations to Autism Association (much like what our good bro Nrafee did).

Ideally give them away to newbies or donate to Project 2nd chance. Also have to agree that nowadays some newbies don't even want them.

Give them to me? I am looking for old cavity backed club heads that are super forgiving Very Happy 

Dont mind paying if they are not that old such as the burner 2.0, R7 or the mizuno mx 25, mx 19 etc

Are there golf manufacturers who have a recycling program where they take back old clubs and melt them back into raw steel for re production?

See? My beginner set is way older than that. I tried to pass to my ex colleague my beginner Trident set. His initial reaction is "What brand is this? Never heard before one leh..." Nbz.. Give out of goodwill still kena suan....  Laughing 

But seriously speaking, besides trying to hand them down to newbies, it seemed like these old clubs are destined for the dumpster. It is quite a waste considering the fact that metals like iron are been depleted on a daily basis. We will run out of these precious resources one day. Maybe can try and give to the garang guni man...  Question

Itsuki, maybe you can try to search if anyone is running charitable or non-profit golf programs for schools.  Some golf academies have tie-ups with schools where they offer lessons at heavily subsidised rates.  I am sure they will gladly accept equipment donations if they are in working condition, and it goes to those who will appreciate it.
