    Sorry pal, I think the bloke that runs the Gabba store is the most helpful guy you could meet. Don't really understand your gripe, don't really care too much either.

    I know a local franchisee and wish him all the best. Just a normal bloke with a family, trying to make a decent buck.

    I admire your passion but it is a big call to ask everyone to trust you on that. You may well be a raving lunatic.

    By all means tell everyone your story. If others experience the same then others will either think that maybe you were right or that there are more than one raving lunatic about the place.

    How many threads do you want on this? Are you willing to take on the legal action, should they decide that your posts are defamatory?

    I get very good service at the Drummond I go to. I dont think you can tar them all with the same brush.

    i have to agree with the BAD reputation of Drummonds. I live nearer the Cheltenham store but never liked the staff there. I always drove the extra few k's to go to Carnegie. The staff there were always much better. More friendly and the club repairs were always done exactly how i wanted.
    I am NOT happy to hear that the staff are not there anymore. I have not been in since the change of ownership but i dont think i will bother. It was always not the greatest stocked store, but the staff were always happy to order in what i wanted. I am more interested in the relationships built over time with golf store people. The guys there i trusted. Looks like i won't be going back.

    Any thoughts on a better shop somewhere?

    Can't you just go to another Drummond store, sure its a pain but it sounds like it will piss you off less than going to Carnegie.

    You haven't been back since new owners, how do you know the place isn't worth visiting... Haven't noticed any other posts from you guys before, this kind of smells a bit funny to me!!

    The other Drummond stores are too far away from me. My point was that the staff there i had trust in. If there are new people there, then i have no reason to go back there. It's hard to find somebody that does really good club repairs. The guys there did.
    I have tried the locals and been unhappy with the results.

    What he said ^^^

    1 store does not shit company make. The guys in my local drummond are good blokes - not necessarily the most knowledgeable, but willing to admit what they do or dont know as well. Always happy to help.

    two new posters - both whingeing about exactly the same thing! could it be.... coincidence

    I certainly won't be boycotting just because someone else has the shits.
    Kev at Drummond Townsville is great to deal with, and a top bloke to match.

    What happened may help? Just saying you got bad service? You may have gone in on a day when everyone had the flu or something.

    Gotta say Rocketman - your original post makes it sound like these guys sodomised your dog.

    What exactly did they do to make you THIS upset?

    PS If they did sodomise your dog, then I fully understand the depth of feeling you have expressed.
