I was solicited by Patriot Golf

I got the Fathers Day special last year(2021) which 8ncluded a 7 Wood, cap and ball marker.  The cap was crap, the ball marker did not have enough magnet to stay on the base. The 7 Wood, was a Taylormade RBZ knockoff.  It is still in my bag as I can get 160 out of it or 150 choked up.  The package cost me $33 for s&h.  The only issue I had was no headcover that was promised. Took them 6 months to get me the headcover..

Received an e-mail in May to try out their 3 woods and keep the golf bag free after returning them.   I called them and they charged my credit card number for all items.  They promised 3 weeks (Oh, yes, they had to "cut" the clubs to my size!).    I requested a refund after 6 weeks, and after 8 weeks, got the credit card company to go after them.  My last call to them was on August 5, in which the voice mail said they were closed for the Fourth of July weekend.

I ordered driver to check it out and 5+7 wood for $133 each. That was back in September and 11/28 I still don’t have the clubs. I bought them telling sales guy they were for 2 week golf trip in November. He said fine. Get email 3 weeks ago saying they are little behind on production. This is nuts. Tried to get into my account and the password is as long as my arm and doesn’t work. Tried to reset and no luck. Salesman I dealt with was like used car salesman. I should have known better. Calling today to cancel and refund. I better not get the run around but I’m sure I will Not happy and will try not to lose it on phone

I work in a golf shop and came across somebody with a set

he is quite happy with them and told me he’s a sucker for anything with patriot attached to it

i will say they do look like inexpensive clubs and I doubt any serious golfer would give them a second look but three free wedges is a pretty good way to find out

I get those coupons for Patriot Golf and Warrior Golf when I buy Hole in One Insurance for my tournament.  I don't even give them out...they go directly in the trash as I don't want my players to get suckered into wasting their money.  Much better to go on RockBottomGolf.com (where I buy most of my prizes for the tournament) and find a deal there on quality clubs.

This marketing strategy has been around for a while. Warrior golf was the first on that comes to mind. I get emails from patriot and one other that I can’t remember.

I have no personal experience but Have heard the equipment isn’t horrible but it is difficult to return if you choose to return.

Patriot Golf used to be Warrior Golf.  They changed names.  There were something else before changing to Warrior Golf.  Once you make contact with them you will receive a never ending supply of email and snail mail for everything under the sun they offer.  I bought a hybrid and got a free 60* wedge.  Wedge was great but the hybrid sucked.  Six months of trying to return or get credit or anything only resulted in more mail to buy something else.  I never did get nay response about the hybrid and ended up trashing it.  

Stay away from them.

I'm sure others have mentioned that this looks like another Warrior Golf scam. Their objective isn't to sell you good golf clubs so much as to get your credit card, address, email, and phone # on file making you their retail slave. Their scam usually goes something like this.. "free set of wedges, or driver, or wood.. all you have to do is call ###, you call in and then they tell you in order to get the free wedges, you just have to pre pay $$$ for a set of irons or other clubs that you can return any time for a full refund and you can keep the wedges" in the end you end up with a crap set of wedges that you wouldn't give your worst enemy as a gag gift, a bunch more really crappy clubs, and a snake oil salesmen that is paid to do anything they can to get you to NOT return that set of clubs that you paid 5X the price for.

The only free good clubs out there are ones you inherit or get as a gift.

Stolen clubs aren't free.. if you know what I mean.. 😈

Warrior was and or is scam, can't return and get money back, many have stated that. Sounds to good to be true, it usually is.

I actually played at the golf course in Palm Springs California were warrior golf was started. I think one of the pros there or the owner somebody there started warrior. Anyway had to use a rental set while I was there as it was work trip. Didn't anticipate playing golf but they put us on for free for handling some of their IT stuff. Great guys at the course and condos they have near by. I wouldn't say there equipment was terrible. For sure not the best but it did the job for a free round on a beautiful course. Just getting to experience the course and play there was nice. I guess if you aren't serious about playing golf or just starting out they would do just fine. Plus people gotta try to make money somehow. They just happen to make it a little gimmicky to get sales. But that's somebody's dream y'all are calling a scam. They aren't they bad. I mean I wouldn't play then if they were given to me but they would be great for someone like the guy that was with me. Player Jess than 10 times in his life and probably won't play that many for the rest of it

Not all dreams are good ones.  Might be his with best intentions but someone has changed the dream into a nightmare.  Selling mediocre equipment with no hope of a return, exchange, or refund is a scam masquerading as a "dream".  You rented and played their course.  By your admission, not the best tools for the job but they were available.  Put that in the story of someone who bought the bad tools then tried to return so they could get the right tools and you have the Warrior/Patriot business model.  That is my experience with them, not a perception.  They will not exchange or refund and hound you until you go away.

I received a marketing email from Patriot Golf with an offer for free wedges when I participate in their test play program. I was intrigued so I called.

Basically, if you buy a wood or hybrid with a 45 day return guaranty then you get to keep the 3 wedges regardless if you keep the wood/hybrid or not. 

I passed on the deal, but it made me think. Has anyone heard of or tried their stuff?

I was contacted and I did the same as you.  I passed on the deal.

Yes you do but you don't do it in this way. Charging people for things they don't want and sending garbage out in hopes that is too much of a hassle or hope people are too lazy to return is fine. You can do this, but this kind of feedback is what you get for your business.
