Clubs for kids

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Trying to find some clubs that would be good for introducing my 5 year old to the game. Don't want to spend a fortune on clubs he will outgrow quickly. Just want to get him hitting here an there. I see US kids golf had a 9 iron with a training grip. I'm thinking that might be a good starter club and add a putter or wood/driver if he enjoys it. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Yes, Callaway Preowned Has a Deal on a 5-8 yr old set - jump on it as the quantity is limited - driver, fairway, hybrid, 9i, wedge, putter and bag - and a great price.

Which coast are you on? I bought some off of craigslist. I bought a nice set of Barbie clubs for 15 clams shipped! They were brand new!

Thought if you were on the east coast and close you could check out the set I have.

A look around the site also revealed this similar set for under $100 in right hand

 

Sorry - that set was for 9-12 year olds....

Hey thanks for the links. I'm going to check them out. Not sure I want to drop $200+ just yet. I'd like to get him swinging a club first. Even if I have to upgrade soon. There is room for hand me downs or a second set of clubs when one of his friends want to play.

I picked up a set of Intech? I think, that was the brand. 5-8 year old clubs, wood, 3 irons and a putter with a bag for 30 bux on cl.

Have you been satisfied with the Intech clubs? I've seen them but didn't have anything to go off of.

Here is a set, should be able to get it pretty cheap. I saw them all the time on here when I was trying to find one for my kid. I ended up just getting one of ebay though.

My boy wants new equipment ... When I replaced his 9i, which he lost, he said "but it's not new."

 

I said, "Neither are your other clubs."

I bought a US Kids golf 9 iron with the training grip. Ill probably pick him up a putter as well. Those two should keep him busy for a while.

Initech clubs are a little heavy for a 5 year old but they seemed solid. Like I said I got them second hand and they were pretty nicked up.

I will probably try to buy used for a full set. I'm hoping to get him started chipping and pitching in the backyard and go from there.
