About Us

Golfgeardirect are specialist online golf retailers supplying top quality brand named golf equipment, clothing and accessories at the best prices. We have been golf retailing for over 21 years and our products and prices are backed by our experienced staff who are available for FREE advice at all reasonable times. Personal callers are very welcome at our superstore located in Rainham, Kent (see above map) which boasts an excellent reputation for service, selection and quality and has been established since 1992.

How To Purchase Goods

We have made buying from www.golfgeardirect.co.uk as simple as possible. Our shopping basket will store items you have placed until checkout process has been completed. Each item for sale will have an order button. When you press this button you are taken to the order-processing page where the item will be automatically added to your basket. To view items in the shopping basket and amend them accordingly simply click on the 'show order' section.

You can input how many of each item you would like, decide to continue shopping, remove an item from the basket or check out and place your secure order. It is at this time you would be asked for your name and address and then your credit card details if the shop has online authorisation. From within the order processing page you can become a clubishop member - by doing this you will be entitled to various promotions that we run. It also enables us to store your personal information to assist you when checking out. This information will be stored in a 'cookie' on your computer. We will not store any such information on our system, in order to protect your privacy. The only details we cannot store are your credit card details.

Accepted Payment

Paying online is simple, we accept Mastercard, Visa, PayPal and all Debit Cards. For more details see above. If you place an offline order you will be contacted by one of our representatives to arrange payment - this can be by credit card, debit card, cheque, PayPal or Bank Transfer. (details upon request)

We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

Please make cheques payable to:

Unit 11, Headcorn Business Centre, Maidstone Road, Headcorn, Kent, TN27 9PT

Is my transaction secure?

Every on-line transaction made within www.golfgeardirect.co.uk is transmitted across the Internet using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. This industry standard method ensures that information sent from your browser is scrambled whilst in transit and decoded when it arrives on our server.

You are far safer using your credit card within www.golfgeardirect.co.uk than you are in a restaurant in your local high street. We take the issue of security very seriously and have taken every step possible to protect you. Our servers sit behind a state of the art hardware firewall and the computer that handles the card services is a bastion host of the ishop mall servers, and not accessible from the Internet.

We have employed the services of one of the countries' leading security experts who regularly monitors and updates our systems.

What if I have problems ordering?

Common reasons for problems when pressing the order button are;
i) You are using an old browser that doesn't support SSL encryption.
ii) You are browsing from behind a corporate firewall that will not allow secure connections. Speak to the system administrator at your office. They will either rectify the problem or you will have to order from another location.
To check, point your browser to https://www.microsoft.com/ if you cannot connect to the Microsoft secure server it is likely that one of the above faults apply. If you are able to connect to Microsoft please call our hotline number and report the fault to us. We will assist you if we can.

What if I do not receive my goods?

Please wait 3-5 days if you are in the UK or 7-10 days if you are overseas. If you do not receive your goods after this period of time, please contact us on 01622 891675 or at [email protected] with your order number to hand.

This number will be included in the e-mail you received when you ordered the goods from our shop. We will strive to resolve the issue immediately.

PLEASE NOTE ANY ORDER OTHER THAN STANDARD SPECIFICATION IS CLASSED AS CUSTOM BUILD AND MAY TAKE UP TO 10-14 WORKING DAYS TO BE DELIVERED

When is my credit card debited?

Your card will normally be debited when the goods are dispatched. An authorisation takes place when you place your order. This simply guarantees that the funds are available on your card and that payment will be made to us. This authorisation remains valid for ten days. When the goods are dispatched, we will debit funds from your account overnight directly into our own. If certain items in your order are out of stock or unobtainable we will only partially debit your card order. We are also able to cancel or refund individual items of your order should this become necessary.

What happens if my card authorisation fails?

If the authorisation fails, the most likely explanation is that you have input your card details incorrectly. If this happens, press the back button on your browser and you will be returned to the card input page. Check that all the details are correct, and make any changes necessary before proceeding. If all the details are correct and you still fail to get an authorisation then we advise that you contact your card issuer to establish why your card was not authorised. We will receive your order anyway and may contact you to arrange for alternative methods of payment.

What risks are involved in buying online?

All personal data, including your card number is transmitted over secure connections, meaning that no-one can 'eavesdrop' and capture your details. In addition to this, your card details are not viewable by us at all, they are simply transmitted over the bank's private X25 network for authorisation and payment transactions. You are protected because the transaction was carried out as 'Cardholder not present.' This means that any payments will be refunded to your card should it be used fraudulently by someone else or you do not receive what you ordered.

Stock Levels

Our products are offered subject to availability. We maintain a stock level of over 10,500 items at all times however from time to time we will experience low stock levels on fast moving items.

If for any reason we cannot supply you with any part of your order we will contact you via email or phone to advise you. We may need to cancel or refund the item from your order, in which case your encrypted payment details will be cancelled and no monies will be debited.

Prices are subject to change without notice.
