Golf in the Philippines
« on: December 11, 2019, 03:34:49 AM »
Hello everyone! Is it worthwhile to bring your golf clubs with you from the U.S. or should I just leave my clubs in the U.S. and buy new ones there. I already know they are very expensive and probably limited on what you can buy. Was considering bringing mine with me or look into "ship sticks.com" and have them shipped to my hotel.

If you know you're gonna be there for a spell (1 yr or more), have them shipped in a Balikbayan Box. It will take 2-3 months to get there but at least you shouldn't have hassles with Customs.
Thank you...God Bless...

Absolutely bring them, you can buy used clubs here at an almost fair price, however, the new clubs are very expensive.    I started golfing about a year and a half ago, and am now "ADDICTED".  Where are you going to golf?   I am a member at a club near where I live (Tagaytay), if you are going to be in the area let me know.  (keep in mind, if you are a really good golfer, I am still just a beginner, but still enjoy)
