How to Get Golf Clubs for Free

By Timothy Bodamer

Finding a free set of golf clubs takes diligence and research. The key is finding clubs that are in good enough condition to play a round. Nevertheless, getting golf clubs for free is possible.


Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Enter a local golf tournament to win clubs. Many golf tournaments provide chances to win a set of golf clubs--through your talent and luck. Scramble tournaments may award free clubs for in-tournament contests, such as longest drive, closest to the pin and longest putt. Raffles and hole-in-one contests also award free clubs at the end of the tournament.
Step 2
Get a demo set, which are gently used clubs. Visit and get a free demo set of Warrior woods, irons or hybrid clubs. You can also visit to receive a free sand wedge or gap wedge. Be advised that there's a catch when ordering from either site. While the clubs are free, there's a charge for shipping and handling.
Step 3
Use a credit card that offers rewards points. One such card is the Golf Digest MasterCard. Every time you use the card for a purchase, you'll gain rewards points. If you earn enough points, you can redeem them for free golf clubs from well-known club makers such as Ping, Callaway and TaylorMade. Visit to apply for the MasterCard and learn how the rewards process work.
Step 4
Go "diving." Some golf courses have divers retrieve golf balls for the course to resell in their pro shop. If you're willing to get wet, ask your local public course if you can look in their ponds and creeks. You may want to do this on off-peak hours or when the course is closed. Course managers might welcome somebody cleaning out their water hazards. And you may stumble across a club that an angry or unlucky golfer dropped in the water.
