When is the best time to get a new set of golf clubs? Is spring a better time or perhaps fall, when everything goes on sale? We’re here to break it down for you.
Some of the best deals found on golf clubs happen during winter, right around the holiday season. While pricing on golf clubs doesn’t actually go down this time of year, it’s the sales or club member discounts that really help the pricing. Of course, it’s enticement for people to give golf clubs as gifts.
During spring, you can typically find the best prices on last season’s models, during sales. This is the prime time to get last season’s model at its cheapest price, as all the newest models are hitting the shelves as well.
In a cold weather climate, no one is thinking about golfing during this time of year, so you may be able to find some great deals. Deals will start popping up more frequently as spring nears, and new gear arrives.
Some say that summer is when demand for new clubs skyrockets, and therefore prices shoot up. It’s typically when most people realize that their gear is lacking, as the weather has warmed up and improved and they’re playing more often.
This is the time of year when some stores try to sell of their current gear, in order to make way for new models in the spring. Some stores do wait for spring to sell gear off, but Fall is a great time to look for gear.
You can typically find gear at any time of year, and find it for a decent price. Most shops have sales at any time of the year, so you can find deals. Try to avoid summer, as that’s when demand is highest, and there’s typically only brand new lines to choose from. Fall and spring are your best bet to get your hands on new gear, that may be a season or two old.
