the customs/duties/taxes is hit and miss sometimes. but be prepared to pay for it. sometimes, it can be half the cost of your item. also, be careful of fakes and cause there's lots out there on ebay.

That sucks dude. You should call the clubhouse. I left my 9 iron at Guildford and got it back a week later.

I'd check CL if not.

i did the shits, 96. i shot 86 and 87 at the Dunes and Sun Rivers the day before.its a tough course with a lot of blind holes. not knowing any of the holes, very scary.

price? i dunno. it was a package deal(3 rounds of golf,power carts included) with 2 nights at the Hampton Inn,$475.

Played the course 2 weeks ago for the first time. Its a link style course. Wasn't impressed with the course layout, course conditions, and green fees. I suggest you consider another course as Kings Links charges an arm and a leg, not worth the price.

Not that it impacts the course layout, but they don't even have a proper club house..

Kings Links is awesome. one of the most challenging courses out there. classic links golf course, and its worth the $75 or whatever they charge. if you think you can golf well, go to Kings Links and be prepared for some humility. its a golfers golf course.

i played there 3 weeks ago and get out to play it every other month or so. the conditions were great and the greens were fast. remember, its a links course, so think British Open, that's what you get.

btw, we got to play the first round of the season there a few months back,check it out:

I'm going to play Mayfair soon. 2 for 1 FTW.

Shot my new low round yesterday, 85. With an 8 on the first hole too. My first free round @ Newlands! Woot!

just played it today. fairway and greens were dry so the ball bounced and it fast as hell. its not an easy course to play with 2 feet grass growing on the side. hit it there and you think you can find it but you never will. paid $60 for 830am tee time so guess its not so bad.

played tsawassen right after for $30 and enjoyed that more. greens were softer, greener. par 65 so a little shorter but a lot easier.

Hey guys newbie here, my company does a golf tourney every year and ive wanted to get into golf for a while now, so when i heard about the little tourney i went out and got some cheap clubs at sportschek(99.99$ dunlops complete set, at there tent sale thing) Thought theyd be ok for starting out. Went to driving range twice with buddy, and on the second time the head of the driver went 100 yrds down the driving range. So i took them back. Just wondering if you guys could recommend a store to check out for a decent starter set thats not going to break the bank. thanks guys!

wow! i guess you really do get what you pay for. go to riverside and look for stuff on clearance. i never pay full price for any of my golf gear. i just wait for them to go on sale or if they have freebies that come along with the purchase.

if you find something for like $100 at riverside, go to golftown and get them to price match plus 5% off the golftown price. thats their price matching policy =)

Craigslist always has some good deals but if you're unsure whether or not its a good deal, post it here and we'll let you know.

As for your current set, you can always try to take it back and see if the manager will let you upgrade the set or something. There is no Dunlop customer service so dont even bother trying.

You guys are too good.

I've had 4 rounds in the 80's in a row and I'm ecstatic.
