September is a sweet spot when it comes to deals on golf equipment.
Manufacturers bring out new models, and retailers clear space to attract traffic. The result is sales on this year's clubs, including some "fantastic drivers," which were on Golf Digest's hot list, says Bob Carney, brand editor for the magazine. Whenever you buy gear from the year before, "you're going to get a substantial discount," he says.
You can save 20 percent to 25 percent, he says.
Labor Day and the rest of September bring deep discounts on range finders, too. As with clubs, companies "are bringing out the new models," Carney says. In some cases, you can save up to a third of the cost. It's "a very good deal."
