    My dad has really accelerated his golf game in retirement. As such he's accumulated a dizzying amount of clubs over the last few years. Last year he gave me a really nice but older set of Taylor Made graphite irons and Taylor Made drivers along with some assorted hybrids and such. Really nice clubs but I'm not a golfer.

    It's probably 1500 bucks worth of clubs but as I've learned golf clubs don't hold much of a value and this was easier for him to dump them on me vs trying to sell off and ship.

    Any of you golfers have an idea on where I can sell these? They're in tip top shape but aren't worth a whole lot. Probably make a nice starter set for someone that's just starting out.

    The last time I got new irons I traded my old ones in, both were Ping's and top of their line, and the trade in value was like 50 bucks. Before I took the 50 I tried to sell them on my own, ads at work, craiglist, etc., and got zero response. This was a set of 3-SW Ping blades, top notch clubs, zero interest.

    I took the 50 to just not clutter up the garage anymore.

    Used clubs are ridiculously hard to sell and get any value for at all, I'd take pictures and try craiglist but don't get your hopes up. And if you're selling a full set of irons, with some fairway woods, and a driver, in very good condition from a top brand like TaylorMade, I'd still only ask a couple of hundred dollars tops.

    Sometimes I watch Storage Wars and see them pull club sets out of the locker they just bought and declare them worth X hundreds of dollars, yeah right.

    That's my .02 cents, others may feel differently.

    I was thinking 150-200ish. I'm under no illusions that I'm sitting on a gold mine I just don't want the hassle of selling off a club at a time.

    i'd recommend finding a school or organization with a golf club or team, and donating them in the knowledge you are helping a child and mebbe getting a tax deduction.

    The value is nil and not worth the hassle of trying to sell them. Give them to a friend and you will have someone to go golfing with you.

    Look them up on eBay to get an idea of value. One mans crappy 9 iron is the missing club for someone's set.
