Have a set of clubs and wondering what price pawn shops pay for Golf clubs? The Truth is the price varies, depending on the brand and the quality of the Golf equipment, and where you live. It’s a lot easier to sell a set of clubs in Florida than in Alaska but I will answer all questions you might have.
A pawn shop will pay you between 20-40% of the Golf club’s used eBay value, which is anywhere between $200-$2000 depending on the Golf club’s brand and quality. Unless the pawnshop specializes in sports it could be hard selling used inexpensive clubs.
Unless you live in a place like Florida where Golf is very popular you are better off selling your Clubs on eBay, if you don’t know how to sell things on eBay check my video here.
I will explain the issues with selling your clubs at a pawn shop, and where is the best place to sell used Golf Clubs, read on to find out!

How Much Will Pawn Shops Pay For Golf Clubs?
If you bought a Callaway diver for $400 and decided you want to sell it to a pawnshop immediately it would be worth $200!
According to the pawnguru pawnbrokers first look at the brand to create a figure, if you’re selling big Golf brands like Callaway or Titleist you will get a lot more for your clubs, than selling cheaper brands like Wilson.
Condition is super important, if any of your pre-owned clubs have missing grips pawnbrokers will make a lower offer because they can be replaced, which they need to do themselves.
How often do you re-grip your Clubs? Find out how often you should change your Golf grips in my article here.
But, if your clubhead is loose or has any major chips, rusts, or dents on the clubface or shaft you will struggle to pawn them because the cost of replacement will be high unless it’s a particularly expensive club.
Do you know how much it costs to reshaft a Club, how about doing it if it’s doing it yourself? See my post here to answer both questions.
Before selling your clubs make sure to clean the clubs thoroughly to get them shining again, see this YouTube video here for cleaning tips.
I will explain the issues with selling to a pawn shop.
Problems With Selling Golf Clubs To Pawn Shops
Pawnnerd in the above YouTube video explains how, unlike jewelry which is a pawnshop stable, Golf clubs are a lot more awkward to buy.
Jewelry is lightweight and easily can be melted down and sold, Golf Clubs are very awkward to package and require special long Golf packaging to transport safely, so a pawnshop owner unless they have high walk-in sales traffic would be reluctant to buy used Clubs due to packaging costs.
Unless you live in a place like Florida where Golf is super popular, or the pawnshop specializes in sports equipment you will be hard-pressed to sell your Clubs. Living in a rural place like Idaho I don’t see a pawn shop taking Golf clubs unless they are worth a lot.
To save your time Google pawn shops near me and call them, why waste precious money on gas when you can find out then and there on the phone if they will take the clubs?
Pawnshops WILL buy your clubs if you bought them new for $1000-$1500, but make sure to inform the store that their expensive clubs, instead of a run-of-the-mill set anyone can buy on eBay for $200-$250.
Lastly selling a Golf set with a bag will make your set more valuable, Women’s clubs will be worth a lot less naturally, as the market is a lot smaller and fewer people are willing to buy Women’s clubs.
As pawnshops will pay you 20-40% of clubs used eBay rate, why not cut the middle man out and sell them yourself?

- Take photos of your clubs during the day lying down at the putting green or Golf course to make them stand out, take various photos that clearly show the condition of the Clubs
- On eBay or another site create a listing for your clubs, and have the title be the exact specifications of the clubs
