Anyone know if alternativegolf.com.au are still in business at all? 

 

They are not responding to my emails and their phone is not answering.  Ordered and paid on-line for a hybrid 2 weeks ago from them.  Visa's been debited, but my hybrid has not been dispatched. 

 

I hope I haven't done my money!

Looks like they've gone out of business considering their landline telephone is no longer connected, my emails remain unanswered and Chris Smith's mobile is ringing out.

 

I've dealt with Chris before - bought a full set of clubs, plus a few other single clubs over the years and been very satisfied - up until now.

 

I'll have to ring my bank and see what the chances are of recovering my $107 that's been debited to my Mastercard.

 

Ricky :(

That's a shame-  at least he can let you know what is going on.  IS he a PGA Member?   You can also report to them if he was.

Bummer.

 

I hadn't heard of him / them either, but, I tried a google search on the phone number on that website (https://www.google.c...2Kejc8wfMlY-IBQ), and got a few links...

 

- seems he has this site too: https://www.golfcomp....au/contact-us/

 

- and is at this address: https://www.yellowpa...71-listing.html

 

Now, I could be wrong, but don't Bump or Ah Ben live up around that area. A PM to them could help you track him down?

 

And, if you do a 'whois' search on the domain there is an e-mail address listed as a contact that is different to the one on the website, so, maybe try that too?

 

Whois search here: https://ausregistry.com.au/whois

 

Good Luck.

 

EDIT:

 

quick who is on the e-mail registrant contact, has this website: http://www.golfonline.com.au/

 

and it has a different phone number ... and address, see here: http://www.golfonlin...u/store/contact

 

so, maybe try those numbers and e-mail the @golfonline.com.au e-mail that is listed as the registrant contact for the alternategolf.com.au domain name.
