Will you or do you lend your clubs out to a friend? I don't know if I trust someone else with my clubs. People seem like they don't give that much care about somebody elses equipment. So I don't like to lend no one my clubs, what about you?

Lending out clubs is always a sensitive topic for many. I have seen where people do lend out their clubs to their friends and the next thing you know they are friends no longer. I think it is always good to have your own clubs and if you need to lend some clubs get the old ball hitting clubs that do nothing but gather dust. 90 percent of time if someone is needed to borrow some clubs they are new to the game and you will see your clubs as shovels and baseball bats.

:eek: NEVER!!! I'd rather give a friend the money to rent them.
I won't even let them try a club while we are at the range or course.
You need tee's, no problem. You need balls, no problem but don't touch my clubs.

I hear you on that one memorex88. I would rather give them money than my clubs. They are mine, so back off. I don't even like when they ask something like that. I hate to be mean about it, but look they are mine, it's time you get your own.

I know it may sound harsh, but my clubs are just that, mine.

Thankfully im a lefty so most cant use mine but I would never trust somebody else with my clubs.

Well my clubs are farily old, so I have no problem letting one of my REALLY GOOD CLOSE FRIENDS having one or two shots with one of my clubs. I would still be very cautious though of ever lending my clubs to a person for a day while I wasn't there to "supervise".

Unless they are my family, we are always sharing clubs.

I don't think you share in golf. What is yours is yours. No one else gets what I have in the game of golf. Oh, you forgot yours, or don't have it. That's just to bad, cause I'm not sharing.

No one touches my clubs I don't care who they are...not even just trying it because I let this one guy try a new driver I had gotten and he started hitting it on the ground like really hard...I was like "What the F*ck do you think your doing". I don't mind lending out balls or tees or anything but clubs is a no.

I'd have to know him VERY well, if you get my drift.

as in, there better be a heck of a repayment scheme afoot if you mess with my clubs!

:D

I guess I'm just weird...LOL. My clubs are Callaway knockoffs and I've lent them out to a couple of friends at work and didn't really worry too much about it....although I did take the one real Callaway BB driver I own out of the bag and left them the ****'s Sporting Goods special. ;) :D


But with that being said...if I owned a really nice set of clubs (i.e. Pings, Nike, Callaway, etc) then...huh uh, no way, I'd lend you my girlfriend first. :laugh:

Borrowing someone's clubs is like borrowing someone's shoes.
I would change the shoes part for underwear, so it sounds a lot more serious... Anyway, I will not lend anything to anybody!!! :cheeky4:

Tees, ok
Balls, ok
Towel, ok
Wife, ok (yeah, right!!)
Clubs, NO WAY JOSE!!!!!

:laugh:

No, I would never lend out my clubs even to my best friend. I do however have an old set kicking around in the garage that I always throw in the trunk of the car if I'm golfing with someone who I know is new to the game or doesn't have more than a putter and a driver to his or her name. I don't worry about anyone wrecking that set - if they do happen to lose one in the water hazard (yes, I've seen someone let go of the club when they swung in the rough and wound up with the club in the water as well as their shot), it's not the end of the world for me.

As for wife and girlfriend loaning in preference to club loaning, I would bet if there are any female golfers online, they'd say just the same thing about their husbands/boyfriends ... take my wife, please! :cheeky4:

I would

At one point when i first started golfing, someone was once generous enough to lend me a set of clubs to play a round with, I broke there 5 iron i believe. These were the Ping Eye 2 BeCu irons, fairly expensive clubs, still today. It was just the shaft wher the ferrule and shaft meet. I paid to have that fixed and he continued to let me use the clubs. I pretty much learned how to play on borrowed clubs and was thankful for that, i havent had the opportunity but if a friend of mine asked i wouldnt hesitate to share. Any friend should take care of your stuff, and until they proved otherwise i would have no problem lending mine out.

I guess it might also depend on how serious a golfer they are - if they're the type to mistreat their own clubs, then I'd be nervous about lending them out...

you guys probably don't have to worry about lending out your clubs to friends because by the sound of it you probably don't have many

what a bunch of jackasses you guys are. you really must have some jerks for friends (if indeed you have any) if you're worried they wouldn't take care of something you lent them

wtf?!?!? :confused:
Maybe you should read about Etiquette.
There is no need for name calling.

Whoa, Husker. Take it easy. No one wants to get called names around here, even if I might deserve one or two ... or three :) You're giving Canada a bad name with the "dude are you drunk" and then this kind of thing.

Sounds like you take the game seriously and have a decent set of clubs - have you ever had a friend wreck one of your clubs when you've loaned it to them? If that happens too many times, you might find you become a bit more selective about it. That's why I carry a spare of my older clubs for friends. Some of them are great clubs still, but I don't care anymore if they get bent or lost.
