Condition Grading – Golf Clubs

Pristine Condition

Clubs in Pristine Condition show some light shop wear, if any. Items in this category are very difficult to distinguish from new. They may have previously been floor stock, un-hit returns or removed from the box and returned. Exceptional value!

Mint Condition

Clubs in Mint Condition may have been used for two or three rounds and will show some very limited signs of use. In general, it will be extremely rare for them to show paint chips, pop up marks, scuffs or other cosmetic imperfections affecting their appearance. Some very light scratching may be present, but overall the equipment will maintain its original luster.

Excellent Condition

Clubs in Excellent Condition will have been used for a season or more. Signs of use include light scuffing or surface scratches on the crown, sole and face or tiny paint blemishes, minor dings or nicks. Some wear on the grips and shaft bands may exist. Overall, these clubs have been well cared for and whilst they do no not retain much of the "original look" they perform like new and have plenty of life left in them!

Very Good Condition

Clubs in Very Good Condition have been used for approximately 2-3 seasons. The crown may have some noticeable scratches or visible pop-up marks. The face will have some noticeable signs of wear to the grooves, with possible scratches and discolouration on iron sets. Nicks and dings may be present and "bag chatter" may exist on iron sets. Shaft burn and considerable wear to the grips may exist. The head cover may be faded, marked or show other signs of discolouration. Clubs in this category are ideal for golfers less concerned with appearance, but are still seeking the performance of a high quality golf club.
