First time golfers can often strike a great deal with stores that sell golf clubs. Many golf equipment sellers such as Titleist are now embracing the idea of “try-before-you-buy” and offering customers a chance to test their equipment before buying it. Clubs available for testing include current drivers, woods, irons, hybrids and wedges; this service is typically free of charge and lets customers take a few clubs or an entire bag for a day.

Many national dealers also assure their shoppers that recently acquired golf clubs from different brands may be returned with no extra charge. Other retailers, including Golfsmith, tender full in-store credit within 30 days, while both PGA Tour Superstore and Worldwide Golf let customers return clubs bought 90 days previously with full credit.
