I got my husband a 3 month subscription for a Christmas gift, and he ended up not liking it very much. For starters the boxes didn't ship until the next month, and the last one was 2 months late and wasn't shipped until I sent 3 messages and got Cratejoy CS involved. The explanation was that the company lost money due to Cratejoy offering free shipping. I chose the mixed balls option, and received the same ones the first 2 months until I requested different ones. Even though I chose the "gear" box, one box only contained the normal stuff (balls, tees, glove) plus a couple of inexpensive golf books. This last box contained a long sleeve shirt that's out of season and not very nice-looking. For the money, I wish I would have gone with another subscription box instead which sends name brand items (Swinger box sends their own brand of shirts and gloves). The Swinger gloves are very nice though, and the balls are always good brands like Nike, Callaway and Titlest. If you sign up for just the Course Essentials box, you'll probably like it better!
