Demo clubs at a driving range?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get new irons, and I'm amazed that, here in the Pattaya area, there doesn't seem to be an option to try out clubs on a driving range before you buy them.  The best I found is a couple 9f places that you can hit into anet.


I'm willing to travel to Bangkok, if neccesary, if I can find a place to really try out different demo clubs.

Quite a few years ago, (I'm guessing 7 or ???? when I bought my last set of Irons here in Bangkok, I spent several afternoons at the All star golf complex (its on google maps).


At the time they had a lot of different brands shops, and all of them allowed you to take a club on to the range and try it. I found the service there was great, and ended up buying a set of Callaway irons that just 'worked' for me after hitting a pile of balls with them.


I tried Ping, Titlliest, Taylor Made, Callaway, Mizuno, all with no problem.


It is a bit of a pain to get to, but if you want to try before you buy I can recomend the service. 


However, I haven't been there for a long time, so it may be worth making a phone call before coming up from Pattaya for the day!


Hope that helps.

If your interested in certain brands go to their website and search for fitting centers in Thailand. I know Taylormade  and Titlest have places in Bangkok. I almost picked up a new set of irons in May (US - Utah and SC). They were out of all the sets I wanted to try and was a 6 week wait from factory. I did not have the time to wait. They were also getting full price for everything since there was little inventory. They had plenty of drivers, fairway, and rescue clubs
