Beginner: Need Golf Clubs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm new here, so I wasn't sure the best place to post this. I"m sorry if this is the wrong section.

 

Anyway, I have been playing for about 3 years. I probably golf around 15-20 times in a year, so I'm really new to playing. I have been playing with a Wilson Set that is ancient. It's probably 20+ years old at least. It was passed down to me, so I have been using those. I"m looking for an upgrade into a newer set, but I wanted to ask around what would be a good set to start with. I just golf with friends for fun, but think it's time I get something more up to date.

Thanks for all those who can help.

This is one of the best starter sets I know of - I used mine for 2 years & I can recommend them - they're much cheaper now.     http://www.carlsgolfland.com/shop/taylormade-burner-plus-irons.html?&kpid=40475630000&gclid=CITvm9biir4CFUNqOgodxCsAdw

I picked up a set of XV Brand clubs when I got back into golf recently. I also know Orlimar puts out an ok set of beginner clubs for a very fair price. Also if you're looking to pick up a used set of a bigger brand craigslist bookoo and other sites like that are great. Just remember as you develop a better more consistent swing you're going to end up wanting the big name quality clubs. At least thats what happened to me.

+1 Those are an absolute steal at that price!

Lots of new 2013 iron sets can be bought on ebay for less than $300 from legit retailers. The game improvement gear is the cheapest of all of it. I'm not picky about looks but if I was in your shoes I'd look at something like the Adams V4 with 4-5-6 hybrids.

Thanks for the recommendation. That's not a bad price for me at all.

Thanks for the post. I definitely would look for something bigger later down the road. Since I'm a casual golfer with like 15 rounds a year, I would just like something more up to date than the clubs I"m currently using. They are ancient, so anything updated is great for me.

Awesome. I don't know anything about the brands for sets, so that's why I'm asking for ideas. Appreciate the suggestion.

 

Thanks to all who have chimed in so far.

@MexicanStallion look forward to hearing what you purchase and how you get on with the new set.

 

And welcome to the site :beer:

I play Callaway irons, but when I went for hybrids I got the Adams V4 3H and 4H. The V4 line, as Dave2512 notes, offers an excellent blended set of clubs (hybrids at low end, irons at high end).
