So far, not a problem for me. The shops are here to stay, I doubt if they would selling any fake deliberately. Another place is creative golf in china town. Lots of selections. Cheers

Do your homework first, you can get really good deals there but I also see a lot of crap deals too.

As a regular buyer on Golf Republic and FESS, I have to speak up for the guys there. I regularly shop there especially at Greenfields. Decent guys who make club recommendations and will discourage you from buying if it's beyond your handicap. I got an XHot driver for about $120 in great condition. And I sold some of my clubs there and scored decent prices. Go give the fellas at FESS a try. They won't bite.

Auntie Evon is nice. Bought a mint Yes wedge (back when KJ Choi used them) for $60. For those curious about Yururi wedges, Greenfields has two in great condition. Point is, you can buy and try for fun and then put it back on consignment to get some of your money back. Keeps the clubs in circulation, gives access to beginners and creates opportunities to meet friendly golfers ready to dispense advice.

i am hitting about 130 (when i actually hit the ball). Heard MBGC range balls are quite good so need to add only about 5% - 8% more for better golf balls.

8-7-w cannot all go same distance. Note that different individual has different lengths but typical 7 iron is around 140m.

Those 2-piece range balls from OCC has damn low compression core which is very cheap to produce ... One is expected to give a discount of about 15-20% on distance when hitting OCC range balls ... Thats why OCC can afford to replace the whole batch of balls on a quarterly basis ...
