Golf Side Hustle

Hi guys,

 

A bit of a different question and one just for fun. I'm looking to do a golf side project to potentially make a few extra £££. The obvious way to go would be a bit of wheeling and dealing by buying and selling clubs on eBay.

 

I was just wondering (and especially directed at you guys across the Atlantic!), have you seen any more unique golf businesses? An example might be selling different types of clubs from the more unique golf brands. I've always thought importing unique clubs from the US to here in the UK, could be an interesting idea. Import tax is a killer though!

 

Anyway whether it be a blog, a club seller, or something more unique, if you've seen something in the U.S, or you have a need as a player, I'd be all ears!

 

Cheers

well, you're in the UK so...being a tester/reviewer on youtube is all about covered...a traveling golfer blog in the UK/Ireland might be unique to follow.

The side hustle I've seen work from your side of the pond is opposite of how youre thinking. The way to do it is to buy Japan and Europe only releases and sell them to the uS market Example callaway legacy black irons. , or kyoei irons etc. but not just new. Used. You have to be able to get things others can't readily get.

Which brands? The big boys? Or the Hireko/Maltby etc components?

Mostly friends who want rebuilds. Whatever shafts they want, grips etc. No maltby or component stuff, usually big name oem stuff

My opinion is you got hit that "niche" group of people who prefer what a third party site offers (won't mention site, but if you are in the hustle you know who I speak of); which has everything you can't get in the states...being you have easier access where you are located to some of these items.

But like anything, always a gamble and takes money to make money.

My mother used to volunteer in a thrift store at her church a while back. Had a cousin who wasn't working at the time. She used to let him know when golf equipment (and other stuff) and so on would come in. He had a tidy little eBay, Craigslist type business going on for a while giving the stuff a solid once over and flipping it. If you live in a golfy type of area, maybe that's an easy side business to look at.
