Bro

From my exp when I was there in aug, the golf stuff in hk are nice and of good quality. I think there is a pearly gates boutique. The stuff there is nice but ex. Saw this ball marker there. Very berry nice!! But cost sgd50!!!!

If u got time, try going to Shenzhen to take a look. Stuff there are cheaper. U will be amazed at the fake stuff there!! Looks almost real!! Apparels there at cheap! We are taking bout $10 per 'unauthenticated' Nike polo.

Was very tempted to get a set of unauthenticated callaway jaws wedge heads for sgd 30 per piece!! IRS almost as good as real!

There are some golf stuffs at Causeway Bay Sogo.

There is also another Pearly Gates boutique and some other brands at Habour City (TST).

Try Hankow road shops, but go for the bigger ones. I think there are 2-3 of such big sports cum golf shops there dealing with mainly golf-related equipment. The smaller ones are not as competitive, neither do I trust their sources.

Then just walk across the road to find Habour City (海港城).

The apparel shops at Habour City are all sited along a stretch within the mall. But they typically high-end brands. If I recalled, there is a callaway store there too and you can get limited stuff not available in SG.

this thread is useful as I am going to HK in early Nov

i checked out the shops at Causeway Bay and TST area before in my previous trips. in my recollection, prices are better here in SG (think GolfDirect, Golfers Network in the past)

but perhaps with the weaker HKD relative to SGD, may be different today

anyone know if there is an equivalent of SG's Far East SC type golf shops in HK?

I was recently in HK and was at Hankow as well. There is a couple of shops that sell titleist vokey wedges at HKD800. With the exchange rate now! It's cheaper than many places in sg plus they have all kinds of models and bounces and lies.

There is also a shop across the road from the Watson's that sells cheap balls. Bought the new bridgestone e7+ at HKD 175.
