Well, I have two sets of titleist 735 cm irons, one with steel shafts and one with graphite. ..both I got for 200$... my wedges probably set me back 500$, which are volkeys and a 588.. and a Taylor made, white smoke putter.... which I believe I got for 70$...

Just started playing the game and rather than buy a newbie beginner set from Goldsmith or Dick's, I figured I could put together a better set of used clubs for about the same price.  So, here's what I came up with:


Callaway FT-9 Driver - $45

Bobby Jones/Jesse Ortiz 3/5 Woods & 3/4 Hybrids - $130

Nicklaus "The Bear" N1 Linear Dynamics Irons (1-PW) - $30

Titleist Vokey Wedges (52/56/60) - $100

Odyssey Backstryke Marxman Putter - $50

Titlelist Bag - $50


Total cost: $355


Some good clubs in there for less than the cost of a new Callaway, Stratus or Lynx starter set from Goldsmith. In fact, the MSRP of the FT-9 when new was $399, which is more than the total cost of the complete set that I put together.  The same can be said of the Vokey wedges which retailed for about $130 each new.   Bought the Bobby Jones clubs because they were cheap, well rated and beautiful.  Have since learned that these clubs are somewhat difficult for a beginner to hit well, but I also think that if I learn how to hit these clubs, hitting other more "forgiving" clubs should be easier.  The MSRP of the Jones/Ortiz 3/5 woods was $230 and the 3/4 hybrids $200 each; $860 total. The Nicklaus N1 clubs are the most obscure.  They are about 20 years old, probably cost around $150-200 when new and were designed for beginners like me with graphite shafts and, according to PGA.com, a "cantilever weight system and undercut cavity design to establish a lower center of gravity for easier and higher initial launch trajectory." These irons are the weakest part of the set but at $3 a club (total $30), they'll do for now and I can upgrade to better used gear later.  The Odyssey putter cost about $200 and the Titleist bag cost about $160 new.  So, the retail price of the entire set was originally around $2200 which I got for just $355. 


Not bad for a starter set, if I do say so myself.  Now, I just need to learn how to use them properly.  ;-)

Cobra Bio Cell Driver-$200 brand new

2009 Cleveland Launcher 3 and 5 wood-$100 used

Nike Slingshot OSS 4-PW and Cleveland CG14 60 Degree wedge plus bag-$100 Craigslist

Callaway X-series Jaws Sand Wedge-$30 used

Nike Drone putter-$69.17 on sale sports authority 


So all together $499.17 not bad for first set of nice golf clubs and considering I live in Alaska.

Graphite Ping irons, cobra Amp Cell drive, woods and hybrids, with the bag I'd say I'm into this set for $2000+. I also have a second set which I'm into for about another ~$2000.

Under $500, but the memories are priceless. Plus, on some occasions the two of us have beaten sets costing much more. Other times , we have lost to less expensive set as well as more expensive sets. I probably have $4K-$5K worth of clubs in storage. I know I have at least 3 Scotty Cameron putters in storage I don't use, that together cost more than my gamers do.  .

It's worth almost nothing if you try to trade it in at a golf store......

post #458 of 465

Golf Clubs are like motor vehicles, once you take out of the show room ,you loose 25% straight up, paid $1700 for my Ping set, if get 5 years at average one game per week, that works out pretty cheap at $6.50 per round.

How do you like the G25 irons; I have the G15 and love them but I've been thinking of upgrading. I don't really like the G30s although they could probably grow on me.
post #460 of 465

New? Or used?


New, probably around $1,400-1,500. 


Used, it depends if people have seen me use the clubs...if so, they'd assume they're worthless. :-D

The G25, now played a couple months with them, finding them very good, have picked up about 10 yards in the long irons,8 iron upwards hitting about same length as the SZ cobra I was using. Overall very pleased with the Pings, Woods and Hybrids excellent very rare to get miss hits, normally operator fault if you don't find the fairway.

No idea, but here in Finland they would be

910D2 + Diamana Ahina 500 e

910F + Diamana Ahina 299 e

910H 19* + Diamana Ahina 279 e

Mizuno MP-59 5-PW + R12 52, 56 and 60 would be 1350 e

64 Dunlop Wedge 10 e =)

Some 10 e putter


Totals as 2448 euros = $3182


I know, golf equipment is quite expensive here. I bought all of those in total of 450 euros used = approximately 600 USD.
