The foundation of our business is built on superior customer service and providing great prices on the most popular products. We treat every single customer as a VIP customer. We are dedicated to creating and upholding a new standard for online customer service. Golf Clubs Etc's commitment is to offer the latest in golf technology at the lowest prices guaranteed and provide outstanding customer service. We do this by assembling golf equipment at our warehouse, we are not a home based business like so many others. We use only the best names in component heads, shafts and grips in the business. We do not hire golf professionals to play our equipment and increase the cost to you. We fully understand that online purchasing is very difficult. The only way to keep our customers happy is by offering exceptional service. Provide a safe and pleasant shopping experience and offer the best products at the best prices. When you buy from Golf Clubs Etc, you can be confident that you paid the lowest possible price the first time. We have searched the web and continually search the web for pricing from competitors, if you find a site with better customer service and pricing we want to know.
Top Quality Component Heads
Golf Clubs Etc only uses component heads from the best suppliers and manufacturers in the industry. Our component heads are carefully selected and must meet ISO 9001 standards with respect to material, weight, loft and lie tolerances. Although the shaft is by far the most important component in any golf club, Golf Clubs Etc strives to offer only the best component heads. We do not sell any equipment that has been deemed to infringe on the patents or trademarks of other manufacturers.
Top Quality Shafts
The shaft is the engine that drives all great shots. This is why Golf Clubs Etc offers quality custom fitted golf clubs with only the best and most widely respected shaft brands available. True Temper (the number one steel shaft on the PGA tours), UST (the most colorful shaft on the PGA tour), Fujikura, Royal Precision and Grafalloy are some of the most respected names in the business. We offer commercial grade shafts for beginner or high handicap golfers, and we also offer the best performing shafts on the market. We have a shaft for every level golfer and we make golf affordable for everyone.
We save you money in many ways
The Golf Clubs Etc approach to golf clubs is similar to Dell's approach to computers. We enable golfers to customize their club selection based on what you, the customer, want. We then build the clubs to the tightest manufacturing guidelines and ship them directly to your door. Cutting out the middleman allows us to dramatically reduce the cost of our custom products.
We do not hire big name sponsors. Hearing that a well known golfer or celebrity is playing with brand name products does lend credibility to the manufacturer. But more significantly, it increases the price of the product because they have to pay them to play that equipment. In addition, the clubs you buy off the rack are very different from what tour professionals use. The shaft and other playing characteristics are customized to meet the needs of the touring pros. In some cases, the only similarity between the equipment pros use in tournaments and the "off the rack" clubs is the logo.
Golf Clubs Etc knows that not every golfer is able to customize their clubs to best suit their swing speed and physique. That is why we have developed our exclusive online fitting system for every golfer. The system is a simple process that takes your swing speed and physical measurements and translates them into custom clubs that fit the way you should swing. If you’re not sure what is right shaft, head, or grip please feel free to give us a call. Trained club fitting experts are also available at our customer service number to answer questions.

In 1995, Golf Clubs Etc was a concept that developed a vacancy in the golf equipment market. At that time, much as it is today, there were several major brands that made high quality branded golf equipment sold through golf pro-shops and high end retailers. Callaway, Taylor Made, Titleist and Ping held more than 80% of the golf club market. All their equipment is endorsed by touring pros and sold at a premium price.
The budget end of the market consisted of budget golf equipment sold largely through mass merchandisers and department stores. Knight, Northwestern, now bankrupt, Dunlop, and several others assembled golf clubs for this mass market. Prices were what you would expect to find at department stores. Even when quality materials were used to construct the component heads, the shafts chosen were typically price driven. Therefore, commercial quality shafts and grips were almost always used to maintain margins while keeping prices low.
We knew there had to be a way to offer quality golf clubs at affordable prices.
Our first task was to assemble a team of dedicated professionals with expertise in golf club design, custom fitting, manufacturing operations and provide outstanding customer service. One common trait at Golf Clubs Etc is a love and passion for the game of golf. We truly are golfers serving golfers.
The market for golf clubs was in no short supply of competition. We knew to be successful we would have to offer a unique value proposition. Traditional retail channels would be next to impossible to penetrate due to the entrenched brands already filling the shelves and the outrageous cost of advertising. Several well-financed brands have attempted to spend their way into the golf equipment market. Hippo, Zevo, Orlimar and Liquid Metal are a few of the companies that spent millions upon millions on advertising and R&D with only marginal results.
It was not that the products they designed and manufactured were of poor quality nor was their "technological advancements" without merit. Part of the answer lies in the truth that golfers are becoming increasingly wary of promises that buying new golf equipment will lower handicaps and add distance. Over the last 10 years, golf technology has made significant advancements. Clubs are much more forgiving than they were even 5 years ago, but the truth is that the paint jobs and advertising campaigns do evolve faster than real technological improvements. The bottom line is the golfer must get the club face back to square at impact. The shaft is the most important part of the club. It controls trajectory and spin rate. Dependant on what your swing speed is will determine what shaft and kick point you need. You may contact us @ 1-800-365-4638 if you need assistance by a professional.
Build On Proven Technology
We believed that there was a significant opportunity to engineer, manufacture and successfully sell high quality golf equipment if we could correctly fit the clubs to the customer's physical stature and playing ability. Our job would be to keep up with the proven golf technology and then make that technology better by tailoring it to the player. We also knew our clubs would have to be priced right. Selling direct to the customer was the obvious answer.
Traditional catalogs and even Golf Clubs Etc retail stores were considered as possible direct channels of distribution. We agreed that an Internet based store made the most sense. The Internet would allow us to build a dynamic application that could essentially allow our customers to custom build their golf clubs online. Our first version of Golf Clubs Etc was launched in 1995.
