Discount Dan’s Golf shoutout

AquilaAquila "Deceptively simple and endlessly complicated..."Members Posts: 131 ✭✭
Wanted to throw out some quick praise for Discount Dan’s Golf. New set of Mizuno irons just arrived today, and the price was as good as this forum told me to expect. What really impressed me was the customer service. Turns out the clubs were built with the grip logos up, even though I had specified logos down. Small detail, but I knew it was going to bug me. Without hesitation, discount Dan’s offered to refund me the cost of regripping. It made a great deal and experience even better.



With a business model and service like this, I will not buy new equipment from anybody else going forward. Customer for life!

    I do love me some DD's but on a couple quotes I've gotten from them, the "only" savings they could offer was free shipping and no sales tax on full retail price. Obviously better than nothing, but... Wonder if it's due to that particular OEM?

    It's not just them. There's 2 others.

    There are several OEM's who have restrictions on them. They don't want to see their products sold online at a significant discount. IIRC, there are some clubs that you can't order on line and have to call them to place an order.

    I can understand why. Still, as long as I'm not ordering something crazy custom, I'd always want to support a smaller company like DD's. I just don't order new very often so when I do consider it, they are the first call I make.



    I guess the only downside miiiiight be if you ran into issues with the club(s) and need warranty claim, but I would hope DD's would push the issue along with the OEM and help get that taken care of.

    That's one of the many benefits of DD's. The clubs come custom from the OEM and if there is a warranty issue, it's back to the manufacturer for remedying the situation.
