Have never had an issue with Drummond price matching on items that can be purchased online from places such as Golfbox or Golf Clearance Outlet until the other day. I had my sights on a Cobra King F7 3 wood, but, I saw Golf Clearance Outlet had the GBB Epic 3 wood for a price that was too good to not try for the price match at Drummond. When I told the guy at Drummonds he logged onto the website and looked at the price and said he couldn't match it, I said why not? He said as GCO wasn't a stockist he wouldn't price match, also he said it was an item that GCO had to order in with a 3 week lead time so if I wanted it I would be better off buying from GCO. I ended up getting the Cobra which he gave me a better than normal discount on, but, I wonder if others have had any issue getting prices matched from GCO as it is a big claim of Drummonds.

Yep.

Drummond's at Burleigh have refused to match prices on a few items now. Golf balls, gloves, umbrella, towel, shoes...

They just look at the price and say "we can't match that"... And walk away.

I think its interesting when they use the price match in their marketing, but then don't honor it. Be interesting to read, know, what the franchise agreement says about franchisee following franchise marketing.

I suspect there is a trade practices breach here too. i.e. Marketing offer not honoured.

Invitation to treat may cover it but probably not.

Below is is the fine print from Drummonds. GCO didn't have it in stock so I guess they have an out there. 

Although I still believe that GCO would be an authorised Australian retailer for every product they sell.

 

*The lowest price guarantee applies to authorised Australian based retailer’s final price, inclusive of freight, taxes and other additional charges. Product and price must be available on the retailer’s website. The retailer must have stock on hand at the time. Not available in conjunction with other offers/discounts. Interest free terms are not applicable to this price. Excludes closing down sales.

I will be very hesitant to buy from Drummond ever again, certainly for clubs anyway.
