    Golf Sale - State Fair Grounds

    So I'm debating if I should head over to the state fair grounds tomorrow to check out their golf sale. All of my clubs are 10 years old and I'm thinking it is time to upgrade. Has anyone been to these in the past and what have you thought of it?

    ebay is probably a better place to start, however i have never been to the fairgrounds. find clubs that are about a year old and pay about 30% of msrp

    Just heard about this today. I assume they will have pretty much all equipment available to buy? Any cost to get in?

    I haven't gone there for a golf only sale, but once I went for one of the "sales" you hear about on the radio and they have everything there. Electronics, clothes, sports stuff. I thought it was really crappy.

    They charge you to get in the door and all the cheap stuff they advertise is crappy brands as far as I remember.

    I agree with the post about trying to use ebay, or possibly craigslist.

    Re: Golf Sale - State Fair Grounds

    I considered going too, maybe buy some cheap youth clubs for my son. But the commercials are unrelentingly annoying and hard-sell that I'm skeptical. Usually the more aggressive the pitch, the worse the sale.
