The first thing to remember is to make sure there is not a spec of dirt on hubbies golf shoes when he arrives at Sydney airport - they can be a bit funny about non-Australian dirt

There are lots of really good courses in Sydney. The Australian and the Lakes are two - both handily located close to the airport!!!

Previous poster is right about bringing in golf kit - clubs and shoes need to be spotless - as in take a toothbrush to both (but best to discard afterwards )

I don't think it matters how clean they are, they WILL be impounded

Mine were spotless, and i mean spotless.

Set of Ping I3's, and a nice letter to say that they have been impounded, pay $200 or they will be disposed of.

Basically they knew that i would have to pay the clubs were worth 5 times that amount.

When i got them back i swear that all they had done is swap the covers over on the 3 and 5 woods.

I imported my golf clubs, shoes etc when we shipped our household furniture across. Not a bit of trouble. No cleaning was required Oz side. And we never obsessively cleaned due to expecting a cleaning order once things arrived. And my golf shoes were not cleaned as they were inside my golf bag and I forgot.

Mine were not impounded and nor was I charged for cleaning of them. So to day the categorically WILL be impounded is incorrect.

Is that East Lakes? Lost many a good ball there. Good fun course though in my limited experience as a duffer.

Not so good to get your Pings impounded!

I took mine on the plane rather than in the container - I was not keen on being without them for 3 months

If you bring them on the plane you need to clean both clubs and shoes to pristine - they may only ask to see one, but if they are good, you will get through fine.

I did have other clubs in the container that didn't get touched and a pair of shoes I had worn and forgotten about - glad they didn't see them as they were not pristine at all - its luck of the draw if you get impounded. Just clean the stuff, much better idea!
