TRADE-IN VALUES:
 
What is the difference between used golf club Re-Sale value and used golf club Trade-In value?
Why are three Re-Sale and Trade-In values given for each golf club?

What is the difference between golf club Trade-In and Re-Sale values?

The PGA.com Value Guide provides both Re-Sale and Trade-In values as a current, trusted, fair-market value resource for those who are trading in, buying or selling used golf clubs.

The Re-Sale value is the price for which a golfer might buy or sell a used golf club, or a retailer may reasonably expect to sell a used golf club through a retail shop or on-line. The Re-Sale value applies to both the on-line and off-line retail channels.

The Trade-In value represents the value a golfer may expect to receive when trading in condition-qualified used golf clubs with a retailer. The retailer would then either re-sell or liquidate the golf club trade-in (just like in the automobile industry!) The golf club Trade-In values provided in the PGA.com Value Guide are not eBay Statistics.

note: The PGA.com Value Guide provides additional information about the number of transactions on which a golf club value is based, as well as the most recent transaction date. These additional pieces of continually updated information contribute to the confidence level and accuracy of the golf club values published.

Why are three Re-Sale and Trade-In values given for each golf club?

Low, Mid and High values are included to provide a range in which a condition-qualified used golf club may be confidently valued. Other factors including specific condition grade (a very important factor!), year of manufacturer and component specification to name a few, must be taken into account when determining the final trade-in or re-sale value of a particular used golf club.

Why are there no values shown for my golf club?

In the unlikely event that values do not appear for a golf club in The PGA.com Value Guide, a minimum quantity of transactions for the specific golf club model may not have occurred within The PGA.com Value Guide's analysis window. In order to maintain accuracy, and therefore uphold credibility in the values, a minimum quantity of "recent" transaction data is required within the PGA.com Value Guide's statistical analysis model. Please note, this does not necessarily mean the golf club has no value!

These additional pieces of continually updated information contribute to the confidence level and accuracy of the golf club values published.

Where do you get your golf club trade-in values from?

The PGA Trade-In Network’s on-line trade-in service bases all of its golf club trade-in values on the PGA.com Value Guide, The National Standard for Golf Club Values. These values are derived from what golf clubs are actually selling for in the world's largest marketplace for used golf clubs, eBay. In comparison to arbitrary manufacturer or retailer rate cards, the PGA.com Value Guide's "engine" is a complex, real-time statistical program that combines programming, statistical and golf club expertise. Considering eBay marketplace scale and statisitical sophistication of the PGA.com Value Guide engine, it is fair to say the golf club values it publishes are the current, accurate "fair-market values" for the huge database of golf clubs involved.

note: The trade-in or re-sale value of a golf club or set is ultimately determined by the individual parties to a transaction. The PGA.com Value Guide does not dictate or set golf club values in any way. It is intended as a resource to empower consumers and retailers to quickly reach fair golf club trade-in and re-sale transactions.

Does the PGA.com Value Guide value collectible golf clubs?

No. As the National Standard Resource for used golf club values, the purpose of the PGA.com Value Guide is to serve as a resource for the value of "practical", used golf clubs in the secondary market, and not to serve as a resource for the value of collectible golf clubs. Practical used golf club models are bought and sold more regularly in the secondary market (typically for use), and therefore exhibit more statistically significant and less volatile fair-market trade-in and re-sale values. Golf club models that are classified as collectible may have been intentionally produced in low quantities or designed to commemorate an important event, person or accomplishment, both of which would inflate the value of the golf club. These golf clubs may not be typically purchased for use. Also, some older golf clubs become more valuable as a result of their age, rarity or antique status. In these instances where golf club models are classified as collectible, the PGA.com Value Guide does not provide trade-in or re-sale values.

Does golf club condition affect value?

YES! Condition is one of several factors that contributes to the overall value of a used golf club. This is true for both Trade-In and the Re-Sale values. Naturally a golf club that is in nearly new condition would tend to yield a higher value than a golf club that has clearly been used for several seasons. Further, a golf club that has been abused or damaged has little, if any, value in the secondary market. Other factors that affect golf club value are harder to quantify, and are more subjective in nature. For example, a busy shop selling new and used golf clubs for 20 years with a nicely appointed showroom and a reputation for outstanding customer service could most likely sell the same golf club for more money than many of its retail competitors. This in turn may allow that shop to offer higher golf club Trade-In values as well. Of course, each situation is unique, but these, and other fundamental market dynamics (in addition to condition), all contribute to a golf club's overall value.

  • Fairway wood and hybrid wood models are combined into one Fairways & Hybrids category in the PGA.com Value Guide.

Are golf retailers obligated to give the used golf club Trade-In values found in The PGA.com Value Guide?

While The PGA.com Value Guide was conceived and developed to fill a need in the golf club market for a National Standard Source for used golf club values, golf club pricing is not dictated by the PGA.com Value Guide. Retailers are not obligated to honor the Trade-In values, or assign the Re-Sale values, shown in The PGA.com Value Guide as retailers may find specific circumstances in their business and market, or their personal judgment on the physical condition and attributes of a golf club, will determine a different value for a used golf club than what is currently published in the PGA.com Value Guide.

I redeemed my credit at a PGA Trade-In Network facility and I returned the product that I purchased with the PGA Trade-In Network credit – can the PGA Trade-In Network reissue my credit to me?

Once a PGA Trade-In Network credit certificate has been redeemed at a participating PGA Trade-In Network facility, the value of that credit has been transferred to credit, product, or services at the participating PGA Trade-In Network facility and cannot be reissued. The PGA Trade-In Network’s Online Trade-In Facilitator is not liable for or responsible for resolving any disputes between you and the PGA Trade-In Network facility where you redeemed your PGA Trade-In Network credit.

I traded my golf club(s) into the PGA Trade-In Network using the Online Trade-In Service, but I’ve since decided I want my clubs back.

Once your golf club trade-ins have been received & processed by the PGA Trade-In Network Golf Club Trade-In Center, we cannot send you your golf clubs back (in many cases, they are resold immediately upon receipt). If, however, we have not yet received & processed your golf club trade-ins, the PGA Trade-In Network Golf Club Trade-In Center will return your clubs to you at your own cost (you will also pay for the initial shipment to us in this case).
