Looking for a golf shop in Melbourne to score some slick new clubs, upgrade your golf balls or grab some new clothing? The choice is plentiful.
Melbourne has, without doubt, some of the best golf courses not just in Australia, but in the world – indeed, a few of them are actually ranked as some of the world’s best. With such a high-level of playable greens then, you’re going to want to make sure you have the best kit to take advantage of them as you smack, chip and putt your way to under par glory. Alternatively, if you just want to de-stress or you’re not exactly destined to be the next Tiger Woods, you can head to any of Melbourne’s driving ranges to simply smash away.
Fortunately, the city of Melbourne and its surrounding suburbs are home to a number of golf shops stocking a wide range of brands and covering everything from clubs to shoes to smaller accessories, and even pieces of tech such as rangefinders to help you make the perfect shot (in theory).

126-130 Franklin Street, Melbourne, 3000
Drummond Golf is easily one of the most recognisable golf stores across Australia. What started life as a single store in Bendigo, Victoria in 1974 has now grown to 50 stores nationwide. What makes Drummond so popular is the sheer vastness of the range of brands on offer within all categories, along with some of the most technologically advanced club fitting systems you’ll find Down Under.
The golf retailer has 13 stores in and around Melbourne, so you’ll never be too far from one, and staff at all stores know their stuff so will be more than happy to help you with any questions.
House of Golf
325 Collins Street, Melbourne, 3000
House of Golf has been catering to the needs of all golfers since way back in 1946. The company’s first store opened in Melbourne and has since expanded to other stores in around the city. The store has become not only a sanctuary for all things golf-related, but a place golfers can trust, both because of the range of brands in stock and the service and advice provided by staff.
Golf World / Golf Mart
603/611 Whitehorse Road, Mitcham, 3132

Far from it, a number of world-class brands are stocked, including Callaway and PING equipment, alongside a comprehensive selection of clothing and footwear.

Golf Clearance Outlet
1666 Dandenong Road, Oakleigh East, 3166
The Golf Clearance Outlet is the brainchild of Sam Colosimo, a golfing fan and entrepreneur who initially sold discount golf gear on eBay. Following monumental success he eventually had to build his own dedicated website and since then, has expanded into physical golf shops. The GCO is said to be Australia’s biggest golf retailer that beats the prices of all competitors and just because it’s ‘clearance’ doesn’t mean the range is sub-par.
Far from it , in fact, as GCO stocks all the major brands across all the categories you could think of, for use both on and off the court. In-store services also include club fitting, meaning it can easily become your new one-stop-shop for all things golf.
Royal Melbourne Pro Shop
26 Cheltenham Road, Black Rock, 3193
One of the best golf courses in Australia is, naturally, going to have one of the finest pro shops around. Pro shops have the advantage of stocking a good selection of equipment and apparel without you needing to travel to a separate location to buy it.
The pro shop at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club offers just that, as well as having its own team of professionals on hand to assist you with your needs (they’ll likely know you by first name too). Not only can you pick up club merchandise and have clubs fitted to your specific requirements, but you can also sign yourself up to professional lessons and even a golf-specific fitness program.
