Telescopic Golf Clubs
At DivnickGolf, our specialty is telescopic golf clubs for travel and whenever space is limited. We inventory and offer several standard options, but we can also fit our rock-solid telescopic shafts to any head you desire. Our standard telescopic options include:
We perfected the telescopic shaft for our Divnick Adjustable Loft Club in 1992. Because the Divnick is a 4-iron length and the shape of an iron, it is most like an iron, and the most unlike a driver and putter in terms of length, shape, weight, and purpose. Because the Adjustable club isn’t as long as a driver shaft, it can’t generate as much club-head speed, so it doesn’t hit as far. Drivers are the longest and lightest clubs in a bag. Putters are the shortest and heaviest. So it is logical that an all-in-one golf club will not do those jobs as well. We discuss this in more detail on our page of "Disadvantages" of the Divnick Whole-In-One Club.
Because we already had telescopic shaft technology perfected, we started offering telescopic drivers and putters to our customers who wanted to bomb it off the tee and putt with a conventional feel. Some of those players also wanted the next club in from those extreme lengths and weights, so we added telescopic hybrids and wedges.
Kenneth Lie, Singapore: "I've had your Whole-In-One club for several years now, and have added your telescopic driver, putter, wedge, and hybrid...and also gotten your BigStik driver and some clubs for friends.
These are amazing clubs. They are well built and very solid. My colleagues are impressed, and they really like the personalization on the Adjustable. My club pro is surprised at how well they hit and that they collapse for travel. I love showing them to friends. Since the Adjustable tucks into a corner of my travel case, I take it with me on all my trips abroad."

Just thought I'd let you know I'm at La Quinta golf resort at Palm Springs California playing golf the next 2 days with my telescopic clubs: TF driver, hybrid, adjustable, sand wedge and mallet putter. I play the Greg Norman course tomorrow and the Dunes course Wednesday. Thanks for making great clubs!
Over the years, we have matched and fitted our telescopic shafts to every head in the bag for players all over the world, including a 30-foot exhibition driver, and clubs with 4 heads for trickshot performers! Our latest creation is, "BIG STIK - The World's Longest & Largest Production Driver" which has a 5-foot long telescopic shaft and a huge head that is nearly DOUBLE the legal limit. Therefore, it is completely illegal for tournament play, but a super fun club to hit. We designed it primarily for fund-raising at charity golf outings. You can read more about it at the bottom of this page.
The bottom line is , we can fit our telescopic shafts to whatever heads our customers want. Some customers have even purchased entire 14-club telescopic sets.
The most popular telescopic clubs are the Whole-In-One Adjustable, the Tee & Fairway Driver, and the Telescopic-Putter which we offer at a discount as a “Telescopic 3-Club Set” shown here.
Therefore, with our telescopic shaft technology, we can build telescopic clubs with any head, even name-brand heads supplied by our customers.
This page will describe our telescopic shafts and what makes them so solid and durable, and why they perform so exceptionally. We encourage you to review this page before you look at the pages describing the drivers, putters, hybrids, wedges and custom options.
Shafts: Our telescopic shafts extend and lock based on the engineering of a machinist's taper. It takes more force to unlock the shaft than to lock it. There is absolutely zero movement between the shaft sections when locked. Our shafts are nothing like practice putters with threaded connections or "twist-lock" like ball-retrievers. Those practice shafts might be OK for putting around a hotel room, but they are not suitable for actual play because of the movement in the shaft. When you swing and hit our clubs, you cannot tell the difference between them and a one-piece shaft. See this FAQ to learn more about how the shafts are cut and machined.
Note: Our shafts are not adjustable for length. They are either collapsed for travel or storage, or extended for play. Adjusting mechanisms in the middle of shafts would significantly alter the weight, flex, torque, feel, and performance. Of course, you can "adjust" the length like any other club by choking up or down on the grip.
Collapsing Cap: Our telescopic shafts include a proprietary machined stainless steel collapsing cap pressed onto the shaft that extends through the end of the grip. It is designed to withstand impact against concrete which is required to disengage the shaft sections. Click here to see the entire collapsing cap.
Extending and Collapsing: You can see how to extend and collapse the shaft here. (opens in a separate browser window so you won't lose your place here)
Counter-Weighting: The collapsing cap also serves as a counter-weight, sometimes called back-weighting which makes the club feel lighter. One of the most dramatic improvement methods within custom fitting is the use of a weight inserted into the grip end. This is included FREE with our telescopic clubs.
Grips: We ship our clubs with a Tackimac black grip pictured here. These grips never lose their tacky feel and are the most durable grips in the golf industry. If you want a custom grip, you can send us a grip and we will install it on your club at no additional charge. Or, you can remove our grip and install your own at any time. Just drill out the hole in the end of the grip so our collapsing cap can extend through. The bit size will vary a little depending on the type of grip material. We use a 11/32 " bit but recommend you start with a 3/8" if the end of your grip is soft flexible rubber.
Note about Putter Grips: We do not use an alignment or flat-side putter grip because it is very difficult to extend the shaft in perfect alignment.
“We live in The UK. I purchased the 3-Club Set for my husband who rides a motorcycle. He loves golf, but hasn’t been able to take his clubs with him on his bike. So when I saw these clubs, I thought they would be perfect for him. HE LOVES THEM! They have given him the freedom to go on his motorcycle and play where he likes which is what he has wanted to do for so long. Your fast shipping and communication has been great. Can’t thank you enough.”
Alexia and Michael Tough
Note from Steve Divnick: If you ride a motorcycle and play golf, you are among friends. Until these clubs, it has always been difficult, if not impossible to put these two activities together. Now you can ride your bike to your favorite course, or take a long trip anywhere with a round or two of golf included. You can use the single Whole-In-One Telescopic Adjustable Club, or take our 3-Club Set which includes a Tee & Fairway Driver, the Adjustable for all the iron shots, and a Putter...all telescopic.

Most of our sales are a result of satisfied customers telling their friends and demonstrating it on the course (it's a great way to pay for your green's fees!). For every new golf club customer that you refer to us during the first year, we will send you a $25 rebate! It is our way of saying thank you for spreading the word. Just ask them to type your name in the Comment Box when they place their order.
7 Telescopic Clubs
I purchased my first Divnick from you in 2006 and have gotten 7 more telescopic clubs from you since then including the TF Driver, putter, and some hybrids.
Obviously, I like them, and have appreciated your fast service and communication.
I have played with them on golf courses all over the world from Hawaii to New Zealand, .
Now I'm off to get my next hole in one!
September Special 3-Club Set Discount
Order ANY 3 or more clubs and get an additional 10% Discount!
Most Popular 3-Club-Set
While the "Whole-In-One Divnick Adjustable Club" can play the whole game, it is most like an iron. As a 4-iron length, it can't generate as much club-head speed as a driver. And it is the most unlike a putter in terms of length, shape, weight, and feel. So most people who get additional telescopic clubs get our "Tee & Fairway" Driver, and a Telescopic-Putter to go with their Adjustable. With these 3 clubs, you can bomb it off the tee and hit long fairway shots with the TF Driver, replicate all your irons and wedges with the Adjustable, and putt with a normal length and feel with a Telescopic Putter...and they all fit into a checked roller bag so you don't have to pay all that money to the airlines to check a full golf bag! Remember, "Our Clubs Fly Free!"
If you place your order in September for the Adjustable, TF Driver, and Putter (or any 3 clubs) we will give you an additional 10% discount on the total order. That's in ADDITION to the individual September discounts which are significant. This discount will also apply to a Sunday Bag, and any other additional clubs you order at the same time.
If you get 2 or more telescopic clubs, you might also want to get a handy lightweight Sunday Bag too. The durable bag has an adjustable shoulder strap, a hand strap, 2 convenient zippered ball and accessory pouches, a mesh pouch, a mid-separator strap that keeps all the clubs from bunching together, and a removable stiffener. With the stiffener in place, it makes the bag easier to carry and holds it open for easy replacement of clubs. With it removed and the clubs collapsed, the bag can be folded over to fit into your roller bag.
It is perfect for carrying the TF-driver, putter, and adjustable club, along with two or three additional clubs if you wish.
Cost: These bags normally cost $39.95, but are available in September for $29.95, plus an additional 10% discount if you order 3 or more clubs.
When we say "Big Stik" we mean really BIG STIK! It is 5-Feet long and has a massive DOUBLE SIZE head! It can hit the ball out of sight! Of course, it is COMPLETELY ILLEGAL!
Designed for Outing Fund Raising...and the golfer who "thinks" he has everything!
If you participate in any charity golf outings, we have a turn-key package that easily raises over $1,000 using this club on one of the holes where everyone gets to try it. Click here to read about the fund-raising program.
|TRAVELING WITH OUR TELESCOPIC CLUBS: We used to be able to carry our telescopic clubs on flights, but not since 9-11. So plan on putting it in a checked bag. At least you don't have to pay extra for a conventional golf bag! Click here to see more details and history about this issue and what we are doing to try to change it.|
