Everyone loves saving money. There are few things as satisfying as making a brand new purchase at a great price. It is especially satisfying when that new purchase is some new golf equipment that you’ll get to use. However, it can be hard to know if you’re getting a good deal or not sometimes. Today we are going to cover some strategies for saving your wallet this year. While some of these strategies are not universal in the golf industry, most of them will be useful to any golfer.
Subscribe to email newsletters
No one likes email spam. However, some email newsletters, especially Morton Golf ones, are incredibly useful for learning about promotions and sales. Online newsletters will advertise the latest deals and often feature exclusive promo codes. This strategy works for nearly all golf equipment and for booking tee times. Unfortunately, it’s hard to predict what sales will be coming up. Nonetheless, this is one of the easiest strategies to save some money and find excellent deals.
Shop near holidays
If you’re looking to save some money, it’s a good idea to look around holidays. Many companies including Morton Golf will do promotions for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, etc. These times of the year usually feature more sales than usual. Christmas and Black Friday are especially great times to save money. Maybe this winter, pick something up for yourself for the holidays.
Shop after new product releases
Often the release of a new product means the last generation will be marked down. It can be a great time to pick up that product you were eyeing. Obviously, this strategy only works if you’re willing to not get the latest and greatest models. Most golf companies launch a new product at the beginning of the year. Check stores around January and February to see if new product launches have dropped the cost of last year’s models. Haggin Oaks, for example, does an after Christmas sale. Many models are priced down in anticipation for the new product launches. It can be an excellent opportunity to utilize any holiday gift cards you received.
Go to Haggin Oaks Golf Expo
This strategy works exclusively for locals. However, this event is a great opportunity to find great deals. America’s largest demo days usually occurs the last weekend of April. Hundreds of retailers participate. Many offer exclusive deals. Most of the major club manufacturers offer fitting services during the event as well. Be sure to schedule these well in advance though if you’re in the market for new clubs. It is also the one time of the year that Haggin Oaks sets up their used club tent. Inside are tens of thousands of used golf clubs. Many of them are in excellent condition and marked down drastically. It is probably the best place to purchase an inexpensive set.
