CHANEL Signature Golf Clubs
As one of the top brands in the world of fashion, it's so surprise that CHANEL wanted to break into the golf realm with their set of three signature golf clubs. They probably aren't the best clubs out there in terms of precision but if you're looking for something to keep in your collection, these are a great option. For exact pricing you have to contact CHANEL directly but they may run around $795 a piece.

Maruman Majesty Prestigio Super 7
Maruman's Majesty Prestigio Super 7 clubs promise a better swing, from your comfort to the ball spin and trajectory. The collection includes a driver, fairway wood, iron, and hybrid iron. If I had to pick one, it would be the driver, which features a three unit construction head. The face, crown, and sole are actually separate before they're fused together to form the finished product. According to the company, since each component is made separately, each part of the club is designed to the upmost of its ability, which helps the overall driver work to its best potential. Aside from their performance, the collection is also pretty attractive with their glittering gold finish. You can expect to pay around $2,770 for the driver alone so needless to say, it's a pretty good set to have on hand.
