    Goodwill® on the Green: Getting Ready for Golf’s 2017 U.S. Open

    Just putting around the house this weekend? Maybe you should grab some golf clubs to get in the mood for the 2017 U.S. Open which begins next week! Start your new backyard hobby with some budget-friendly thrifted gear or go for the gold jacket by updating your professional equipment with surprising Goodwill® finds. Need a little inspiration? Here are some of our favorite golf-themed thrift wins…

    Golf Digest shared a story of what they call “the steal of the century;” a collection of top-brand clubs that were found at Goodwill® for just $1.99 each. In almost perfect condition, it was an eagle of a find seeing as the same irons now sell for hundreds of dollars online and, as the article points out, they are so good they could greatly impact the player’s golf game for years to come. People don’t often think of thrift stores as the place to buy like-new sports equipment, but since there are new donations coming in every day, anything is possible!

    Even if you only see time-worn clubs on your next visit, don’t forget that Father’s Day is on the way! For a dad who loves the driving range, DIY some fun golf decor like this lamp shared on Goodwill Industries of Northern Michigan (Traverse City)’s Pinterest page. Just track down a thrifted golf bag and clubs, table lamp, and some greenery to reconstruct this decor element. Add tees and brochure clippings from Pop’s own collection to personalize it. For anyone who lives in a cold weather climate, having this humorous piece to brighten their home might carry golfers through the off-season.

    But how does one bring savvy thrift-fashion to the golf course? While polos and Bermuda shorts are always a safe choice at tee time, the look above, shared on Goodwill Industries of West Michigan (Muskegon)’s Pinterest page, would also be super cute if the heels were swapped out for golf shoes or a great pair of sneakers. So, the next time you’re shopping look for cute collared button-ups and a nice skirt that offers coverage and comfort enough for you to perfect your swing.

    At Goodwill®, good deeds are par for the course. In fact, it’s our mission! Goodwill organizations aid in the success of people who are striving to earn paychecks and support their families. That’s all possible thanks to your donations and purchases. So, make sure you check with us for whatever you need before you hit the green!
