What do Louis Vuitton, the Porsche factory in Finland and a dozen Dixon golf balls have in common? Even though the price range between the items is roughly $75 to $52,000 and some change (give or take) they all hold the title of some of the most expensive golf accessories on the planet. In honor of our ‘Life on the Links’ golf week, here are some of the top billfold bending pieces of golf gear we could find.
Most Expensive Golf Balls
Phoenix eco-friendly golf ball and gear company, Dixon Golf, boasts the priciest and possibly coolest golf ball of them all. The Dixon “Fire” Golf Balls come in at $74.95 a dozen. Why? They are pretty awesome, that’s why! The Dixon “Fire” Golf Balls are the world’s first pro-performance and eco-friendly golf ball. They also come with an energy intensifying mantle for maximum power. Well done, Dixon, well done. – dixongolf.com
2nd Runner Up: The Maxfli BlackMAX from Taylor Made Adidas Golf Company – $50 a dozen
Most Expensive Golf Bag – The Louis Vuitton Damier Geant Golf Bag. – Louis Vuitton, the gold standard of stature, holds the title for the most expensive golf bag in the world. (or at least that google knows of) Get out the Black Amex Card for this one (that’s IF, you can find one). Even with a hefty price tag of $8,400, this fairway phenom sold out! So, we’re putting the price on the Damier bag at $11,000 since we’ve actually seen it for sale with that tag on it. What’s so special about it? Aside from the fact that it is Louis Vuitton, it is pretty darn beautiful. LV also throws in 4 tees.
Most Expensive Golf Car/Golf Cart
This one is a toss up because we have to move over the super-duper revved up, uber custom versions for those that we can actually locate on the Internet or talk about without having to stop that guy who is on the course every morning around 8am to ask him just how much he spent on the coolest golf car ever. (Hint, it’s somebody famous and we refuse to embarrass ourselves like that. It’s a long story)… Anyway, we have the Cadillac Escalade Golf Car coming in at around $15,500. Hummer’s version of the Golf Cart/Golf Car will run you about $20,000. And then… there is the granddaddy of them all… the Porsche Factory’s Garia Edition Soleil de Minuit. It’s a mouthful and we think for a price tag of $52,000, it should have a long, fancy name. This eco-friendly golf cart that is made from parts essentially making it the love child of Aston Martin and Ducati, boasts a carbon roof, luscious hand-stitched leather seats, a dashboard fridge and well, custom paint. C’mon it’s really, really nice paint.
Most Expensive Golf Clubs – If you’re going to invest in the priciest golf cart known to man, you may as well hit the greens sporting the most expensive golf clubs as well. Majesty Prestigio Clubs by Maruman Golf claim to be made from the first metal wood ever (a disputed fact) but nonetheless a huge selling point for this Japanese company. Their super strong combo of steels is also a proprietary selling point. Here are some numbers from Maruman to toss around. Drivers $2,000 – Fairway Woods $1,700 – Irons $6,000 (a set)
Most Expensive Golf Shoes – If you want the best, get ready to pay for them. The most expensive golf shoes in the world are crafted by John Lobb and run about $5,000. The Made to Measure Golf Shoes are guaranteed to fit your feet exactly and you get to choose from just about any kind of leather you can think of. Heads up on this one… order at least 6 months in advance. Yes, they take that long to make.
