My wife looked over my shoulder the other night when I was reading an email from one of our readers. Jay from Michigan wanted to know what I thought about the Kirkland KS1 putter. 

As I told my wife that Jay wanted to know about this putter, she remarked that I have a lot of putters (I could see where this was going). She added the tongue-in-cheek comment that they’re really expensive. I gave her the usual reluctant nod and smile and yeah. . .

As much as I hate to admit it, she’s right on both accounts. I have more putters than anyone reasonably should, and I’ve shelled out plenty of money for them.

But Jay’s email got me thinking. . . Do quality putters have to cost a small fortune? That’s what the marketing geniuses at the major OEMs want you to think at least. 

But the truth is that you don’t. I found that out when I did some research about the Kirkland KS1 putter and asked our readers for their thoughts.

Key Features

Newport-style blade offers a confident, traditional look.

Ten-gram weights on the sole are adjustable to your liking.

Strategically milled variable bumps on the face ensure soft feel and consistent roll.

The Kirkland Signature KS1 Putter is a high-performance golf club combining exceptional craftsmanship and innovative design. It’s designed for recreational and competitive golf players seeking superior control and stability on the green. 


With its premium feel and precise alignment, this putter delivers unmatched performance. One of the standout features of the Kirkland Signature KS1 Putter is its SuperStroke CounterCore grip. This grip offers a range of benefits, including reduced wrist action, enhanced stability, and improved putting consistency. 


The grip’s innovative technology allows for customizable weight and grip options, ensuring an optimal fit for each player’s preferences.


Design and Technology

Just because the Kirkland KS1 putter is affordable doesn’t mean that it lacks in quality design or technology.

To start, the face is milled and features variable bumps that provide soft feel, excellent responsiveness, and get  the ball  rolling online and true. 

Ten-gram weights on the sole of the club provide stability and balance to this putter. While there’s a lot of twisting with other, lighter  putters , such is not the case with the Kirkland KS1. Even on mishits, putts stay online.

The weights are also replaceable. This allows you to adjust the putter’s weight to your liking and the conditions.

PROS

  • Price point is significantly lower than other putters.
  • Milled face affords terrific feel and pure roll.
  • SuperStroke grip takes the hands out of the motion and allows you to make a repeatable, consistent stroke.

CONS

  • Only available in right-handed.
  • Only available in one length.
  • Availability is subject to inventory levels at Costco.

Our Experience

Jay’s request for more information on the Kirkland KS1 gave my wife an excuse to go to Costco. I normally stay as far away from the joint as I can because there’s too many people and the bill is always jaw-dropping. But on this occasion, I tagged along with the sole purpose of having a look at the KS1 putter.

As my wife cruised off to God knows where, I made a beeline for the isle where I’d seen  golf clubs  in the past.

To my surprise, there was a KS1 out of the box for folks to look at and hold. 

I spent some time inspecting the specimen and liked what I saw. 

The feedback from our readers that have the KS1 in their bag has been largely positive too. They especially like the  putter’s  balance and feel.
