Where to get real golf clubs for a 3 year old?

14 posts in this topic

Do they even make them for a 3 year old? He is a little dude that has to do everything I do. please help??? I don't want to buy him plastic fisher price junk, some real clubs. Or should I just cut about 2 feet off of some old irons and a putter?

I know my local golf shop has kids clubs that are colour coded for different ages (I'm not sure which colour goes with which age). Not sure if they have them in Canada or the U.S. but we usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to equipment availability so I'm sure you could find them. Cut down clubs would work fine, a three year old isn't going to be worried about swing weight and shaft flex, it's more about getting him swinging which a cut down club will do just fine for.

+1 He beat me to it.

http://www.uskidsgolf.com/uskgProduc...nner&menuID;=29 I would advise against cutting down some of your old clubs, the clubheads are way too heavy and the shaft would be up near 4X-Super Stiff. With some clubs designed for him it will be much easier for him to pick up the game, which will make it more enjoyable as well. I can't wait until my nephew is old enough to go out with us. He got a fisher price "set" (one club) last christmas, but again he was only 20 months old at the time.

I got something along the lines of this:

for my 2-year old. They're well made and just the right size. The set I got is just the driver, a 9-iron, and a putter, but I also have a 7-iron by Lynx (I think) that I ordered from Golfsmith.com. If you just want a single club, it wasn't more than $20 I don't think.

I found a set on ebay, comes with a hybrid and everything. I hope it bolts on to a golf cart.

My 5yo daughter has clubs. My advice is to work from the pin backwards.
Pick up a $10 kids putter at Wmart and see if he has the attention span to last more than 5 minutes on the putting green. Until my daughter was five, she would putt a few times and then be picking flowers, chasing butterflies, and log rolling down the green embankment. She also has a PW, 7 iron, 5W, and golf bag. Would not buy an entire set just yet. Get the putter first, then PW, then 7i, etc, etc.

Dunno if Callaway makes them small enough for a 3yo, but thier kids sets have the Trade in Trade up so when they get taller/older you can trade thier clubs in for the next level and just pay the difference.

Probably sure some other major brands do the same but Callaway's CS is tops.

I'll vote for the U.S Kids golf clubs too. I've got the driver, 7 iron, putter set-up for my 2.5 year old twins. We have a boy and a girl. She's not that into it as of now, but my son is hooked. The clubs work out great, and they're fairly cheap in my opinion. I take him to the range with me now, when I know it's not that busy. He'd stay all day. If I had time I'd take him every day, because he has so much darn fun. "Daddy I really got ahold of that one huh"!! I've taught him some other lingo too. One of my favorites that he repeats is, "Daddy, I caught it a little thin". Pretty funny from a 2 yr old. Check out those clubs. And you can get them right or left handed. They're a pretty solid choice.

My friends 5yo has callaways. Kids real cool. We let him play from the kids tees on the par 3's when the course is empty (we usually take him on monday, because there is absolutely no-one there), and he has a blast. His personal best is a 13 on a par 3, but its so cool to see when he hits a good drive and says 'ohhhh, I crushed that one!' lol

+1, my son has about the same attention span, putts for a couple of minutes, then it's snow-angels in the bunker.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
    • Injury Question
      I had this injury last spring/summer. You have pulled your intercostal muscles in your ribs. It is a nasty injury which requires a lot of downtime (4-6 weeks minimum more like 8 weeks) to let them repair. It happens as we get older. You need to research ways to heal and take time off from doing those motions such as winding up and releasing. It took 4 months to completely heal and that included lots of ibuprofen as an anti inflammatory and stretching. Take the time off to stop the inflamation or it won't go away and could take longer to heal. It is a difficult process that takes time and when you first feel like you are okay you are more than likely to re injure and make it as bad or worse. You just have to take your medicine or that painful stitch won't go away.
