When will I receive my order and how do I track it?
The delivery services that were available and the one that you selected, will determine when your order will be processed and when you can expect it.
- If placed before 6pm, Next Working Day and Next Working Day pre 10am deliveries will be dispatched on the day of order, for delivery on the working day.
- Saturday deliveries will take place on the next Saturday following the placement of your order, as long as it has been placed before 6pm on Friday. Orders placed on the Saturday service after this time will be delivered on the following Saturday.

Regardless of the delivery service chosen, we will let you know that your order has been shipped by sending you an email in the evening of the day that it is dispatched. If you are a registered customer, you will also see in your online account that the status of your order will have changed from ‘Awaiting Dispatch’ to ‘Fully Dispatched’.

What happens if I miss the couriers when they deliver?
To ensure the security of all of our customers, we only send orders on services that require a signature. If you are out when the delivery is attempted, the courier will leave a card saying that the delivery was not possible and will do one of the following:
- The courier may retain your parcel for a future delivery attempt. Depending on instructions left by the courier, you may be able to change you delivery options. This is dependant on the service your order has been shipped on. Please refer to the instructions on your card for more details.
- The courier may be able to leave with a neighbour and obtain a signature from them. Please refer to the instructions on your card for more details.
- Unfortunately, if the delivery of your order fails 3 times, the parcel will be returned to us and we will contact you to discuss the best way to proceed.
To ensure that you receive your order as quickly as possible and with the minimum of fuss, we strongly recommend using a delivery address where there will be someone there to sign for the goods, such as a work address, friend or relative.
Please note that we do not allow collections from our carrier's depots.

Our returns normally begin to be processed within a day of us receiving them.
For items returned for a refund, you can expect to automatically receive your refund in the method that you paid within 7 working days from the day that we receive the items.

I have placed an order. Why have I been asked for additional ID?
The security of all of our customers is of paramount importance and as such we have multiple layers of protection that prevent fraudulent transactions. To support this, we may occasionally require additional identification to validate your order and the details that you have provided in the checkout process.
Should it be required, a member of our Aftersales team will contact you to request additional information. You can rest assured that we treat this information in the strictest confidence and only use it to validate the order you have placed.
By validating selected orders in this way, we can protect our customers, and our business from the harmful and costly effect of online payment fraud.Back to top

I live in a VAT exempt area - how do I get the VAT removed from my order?
If you live in one of these areas, such as the Channel Islands, the VAT will automatically be removed during the checkout process. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide documentation for VAT Refunds on products delivered within the UK, which will subsequently be taken abroad.Back to top
I am a business. Can I make purchases excluding VAT?
........Back to top
What can I do if an item is not in stock?
The availability of stock on site is kept up to date in real time and is refreshed when products come back into stock. As such, if you cannot see an item on site, or that you cannot select the loft/flex/size etc. option that you would like, then unfortunately we do not currently have stock of this product in our Distribution Centre. We are unable to inform you once the items are back in stock so please check back regularly to avoid disappointment.
We will often create Pre-Orders for launches of new products which will enable you to reserve these items and ensure that you receive your new purchases at the earliest opportunity.
For information about upcoming product launches and Pre-Orders, please call our Sales team on +44(0)1512247141 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to top
What sizes do we stock?
To offer the widest possible selection and choice, we work with multiple clothing and footwear manufacturers and suppliers. As such, there may be differences in sizing formats between these brands. To help our customers make the correct size choices, we provide brand specific size guides on our clothing and footwear products.Back to top
What comes with my purchase? (i.e. headcover/wrench)
Some of the products that we sell will come with items to compliment your new purchase. Most of the Drivers, Fairway Woods, Hybrids and putters that we sell will come with a matching headcover. If you receive an order containing one of these products without a headcover, that you believe should have been accompanied by one, please contact Aftersales by phone on +44(0)1512247141 or email them at email@example.com. A member of the team will then be able to confirm whether you should have received a headcover and rectify the shortage if appropriate.
Adjustable clubs require specific tools to make the changes available. Most manufacturers will supply these with the purchase of an adjustable Driver but may not always do so with a Fairway Wood or Hybrid. If you have a concern over whether your purchase will come with a wrench, please speak to a member of our Sales team on +44(0)1512247141 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to top
