I can't believe I bought golf equipment at Aldi! Don't worry it's not a golf club... it was just tees :) 75 for $3. Brand is Crane, never heard of it. Haven't tried them, guess it will be the same as any others... Anyone else has tried Aldi golf gears? :P

I hear Aldi clubs are better than Titleist and TaylorMade put together.

They are Tees. As long as they hold the ball up off the ground I am sure they are going to be fine.

Stay away from Aldi tees. They dent your clubs.

A mate who plays golf once in a blue moon bought a $40 Aldi driver... hit it on the weekend for laughs & actually went alright - maybe I just middled it for once! ...not that I'd ever touch anything but dishwasher tablets from Aldi.

We regularly shop at ALDI, and not just groceries. Electrical gear, appliances. If it represents good value I'll give it a bash. Couldn't care less for names on the things. If it turns out to be shite, then bang, back in the box and back for full refund. Easy. Some of the bigger purchases include a 42" Full HD LCD TV for $1k which is brilliant and this very computer I'm on right now, 5yrs ago, never missed a beat. Now I'm not saying their equipment is brilliant or the best on the market (because it clearly isn't) but it usually represents good to great value. If you are looking for cheap clubs to get interested in the game, why wouldn't you pick up a $50 driver to see if you are keen. If it works out great, upgrade when it suits, otherwise you've lost little.

Crane is the internal sports brand for Aldi, they then get other people to make the gear. In the sports area some stuff is ok value and then some gear is as good as the amount of money you paid for it. Golf is a very technical sport and the equipment needs to be reliable and consistent so,,,,,, Cheers, Boz.

I have had Crane shoes for 12 months or so and no problems at all . Maybe because i look after my gear but they are still comfy , can buy replacement soft spikes and still look good . So much so i bought another pair on this sale .

...not that I’d ever touch anything but dishwasher tablets from Aldi.

Is that my mate’s ball in the bunker, or is the bastard on the green?

More fool you. You are probably wasting $100 a week. Do you think that companies like Colgate,Heinz, Findus, Sara Lee etc. DON'T make stuff for Aldi? I wonder if some people really think that Aldi has its own aluminium foil factory for example. Things like the chocoloate and biscuits they sell is by far the best you can buy in this country as well. Their pancetta and mozarella, for example would sell in the ritzy delis for twice or three times the price. N.B. I don't work for Aldi.

The only chocolate we buy now days come from aldi. It's better and much cheaper than what you can get anywhere else.

We buy lots of groceries from Aldi. Excellent value for money and good quality. On another note, some of the stuff they have there does amuse me, I've seen Violins, various power tools and even Ski Boots (at a Gold Coast store).

I dont often agree with Left but on this subject I do....Aldi generally offers excellent value for money. They are massive in the UK and thats because they sell good quality at good prices, simple. If it was ****, as has been suggested, it would have failed years ago....I dont know about all the alternative items like clothing and tools etc but food is of a higher quality than most. One of my managers has an Aldi laptop and loves it....I have a pair of Crane shorts I use for cycling that are the best I've ever had...ignore or dismiss Aldi out of hand at your own cost! I wouldn't buy their golf gear purely because I'm a golf snob....well at least I admit it!

As long as the tees have been properly put through customs and don't harbour exotic pests it don't matter,random but my 2c worth.
