PostSubject: Best place to buy Scotty Cameron? (USA vs SG)   Thu Jun 23, 2016 9:19 am

Hi All - Just wanted to ask anyone here if it's cheaper to buy Scotty's here or in the USA? I'm looking for the 2016 newport.

My friend bought new AP2's in FESC and he said its cheaper here compared to USA.

Thanks in advance.

I think you have to consider about shipping/check-in baggage cost if you were to buy in USA. 

Still, SGD is strengthening slightly against USD, might be a plus point. 

FESC is definitely selling at the lowest price compared to all other shops in Singapore.

More varieties to choose from and cheaper to buy from USA directly for sure. It is even better if u happen to be travelling in USA and u could hand carry it back yourself. I bought my Scotty from USA at around USD230+ only.

Tax varies from state to state ... Not sure if u can claim tax. Even includes tax, their equipment prices are still much lower than in Sg ... They have the critical mass and hence, economic of scale. Golf attire in USA is dirt cheap ... Especially for brands like Underarmour, Nike and Adidas.

Ok, will ask my friend to scout for me. He's in SF but i think playing a round in Vegas, so maybe there will be cheaper.

Just for your info I bought my Scotty back in 2014 in Hong Kong at HK$2100 and equivalent to S$345 when the US$1=S$1.21. If the price of the putter have not increase I will now be paying about S$363 today.
Hope this information is helpful in your buying decision.

If you are able to drop by Malaysia, you can consider buying from MST Golf in Malaysia. My gear is all bought from there. MST Golf @ Pelangi Driving Range. I usually e-mail this lady who handles the stock for Malaysia from their HQ in KL to make arrangements to send what I need over then I will drop by to pick them up. Let me know if you want the contact. This was the price provided for the Newport: STUDIO SELECT NEWPORT 2 (14) PUTTER              RM 1,250

Guys
Just being a devil's advocate here
Anyone of you tried Yamada?
I have Scotty and Yamada 
I think they are both good
Yamada has the deep groove milling as well 
Yamada has the JDM appeal and the charm of the Japanese premier giving a Yamada to Obama as a gift.
You can get a brand new Yamada for lesser than the price of  brand new Scotty too

Scotty prices are very competitive in HK.

I heard about it as well, but cannot understand why it can be competitive since all scotties are manufactured (or maybe just assembled) in USA. 

HK is too close to China, so I'm a little wary of AAA goods.

I think US is cheaper but you may get some good deals in internet or some local golf shops.

I have yearly commutes to Hk. Golf is deemed as a privilege sport and I believe there is only one public course in whole of Hk. I saw some good deals on shoes and travel bags but clubs are pricey even though there is no sales tax in HK. I recalled when I went to the public Golf range (only one in HK) before it torn down as it was sitting on prime estate, the charges go by time you spent on using the bay. I thought it was a wonderful idea though because it's a more efficient process unlike some really bad habits of Bay hogging I see in Singapore.
