altPONOKA, Alberta (Gord Montgomery/iG) — Ryan Vold is the first to admit that if you have to ask how much a set of PXG golf clubs cost at his course, you likely can’t afford them. But if you can handle the steep price of these sticks you’ll certainly find them worth the money.

PXG (Parsons Xtreme Golf) clubs hit the marketplace a few years back, Vold, the owner and operator of Wolf Creek Golf located between Edmonton and Calgary, said. And despite the fluctuating Canadian dollar he noted these clubs are in fact worth the investment if you’re serious about your game.

As the only public golf course in Alberta to fit and sell these custom clubs, Vold said a few such sets have been sold out of his shop as well as single clubs like the driver, which retails for around $1,000, iron sets that sell for up to $400 per club club depending on exchange rates, and putters that cost about $420. He added that Priddis Greens, a private Calgary club, also carries this particular brand.
