Review of golf club sets under 500

Past few years, i’ve had a lot of beginner golfers ask me about golf club sets. Are they any good, or do you get what you pay for? First of all, it has to be acknowledged that golf club sets are indeed great option for a lot of beginners. They usually don’t want to invest thousands of dollars in a game that they haven’t even played yet. Maybe it turns out golf isn’t that much fun for them, then they will have to either sell their clubs at significant loss, or worse, not sell them and have them decay slowly. Golf club sets are perfect solution for avoiding this trap, which is probably why they’re so popular with beginners.

Now let’s get to answering the question i’ve raised in the beginning of this article. I think answer to both questions is yes. Yes, golf club sets are good, assuming you know why you’re getting them, and you also get what you pay for. You see, golf club sets aren’t for people who want the best out of their clubs. If you are very competitive and want your golf clubs to give you edge over your competitors, you probably should consider getting more expensive clubs. On the other hand, if you’re casual golfer who only cares about having good time and gaining golf experience as a beginner, then i think golf club sets are perfect for you. They are just like expensive clubs, just with some minor cutbacks, that you probably won’t even notice if you’re not a professional. So, if your golf-playing career is just getting off the ground, i think club sets like Callaway Strata would be perfect clubs to start.

Most golf club sets cost thousand dollars or less. Of course there are some sets that are on higher end of the spectrum that cost much more, but we won’t be talking about those here. It should also be noted that beginners’ club sets rarely cost more than few hundred dollars and for eight or nine hundred bucks, you can get golf clubs that are good for intermediates and maybe even expert golfers. If you’re a beginner though, your best options are these sets :

Callaway strata ultimate

Most popular, and for average golfers, probably the best golf club set available right now. It is 18 piece, 13 of which are golf clubs, but the rest are headcovers and other accessories, including a stylish bag. Materials and craftsmanship of these clubs are impeccable, so even for those who have some experience, this club set might be a good fit. There are cheaper versions available too, but the cheaper ones come with less clubs and even those clubs aren’t as good as ones in Ultimate set. Overall, if you ask me, i think the cheaper Callaway Strata sets aren’t nearly as good of a bargain as ultimate one. It is manufactured for both – women as well as men, and both versions are equally good in terms of usefulness. In case this wasn’t enough and you want to know more, i would recommend checking out this Callaway Strata buying guide.

Wilson Golf Men’s 2017

Probably the second best option for beginners. If, for some reason, you don’t want Callaway Strata Ultimate set, you might want to check out this set. It is much cheaper than other golf club sets on the market as well. Quality of the clubs isn’t top notch, and inferior to callaway ultimate set, which costs more than twice as much, so it’s obviously going to be better than this one. But overall, golf clubs are just fine for recreational golfers who are looking for most basic, but decent golf clubs available right now.

Senior Men’s Majek Golf

This set is all-hybrid, which means that it will be pretty good for seniors who are concerned with weights of golf clubs they swing. Obviously, they don’t have as much strength in their arms as younger people do, so having lighter clubs that are designed to be easier to swing is going to be a big bonus for seniors. Unfortunately this one doesn’t come with golf bags or any headcovers, but based on overwhelmingly positive reviews, we can assume that golf clubs are alone are worth the investment.
