Which golf club set should you buy as a beginner?

Beginner golfers often have a lot of options to choose from when they decide to buy their first club set. Not only do they have to choose clubs themselves, but there are many other decisions to be made. Most important of them all, in my opinion, is the choice between buying clubs one by one or buying them as  a set. The former gives you more freedom to customize your set and make it more suitable for you, while the latter saves you time and energy. For experienced golfers, i definitely recommend the route of choosing all clubs one by one, but i don’t think beginners know enough about golf to actually make good decision in regards to what clubs need to be in their bags. Plus, club sets come with everything a beginner golfer needs to actually get playing, including accessories like bags and headcovers. Collecting all of that on your own takes too much time and effort to be worth it. That’s why i think buying entire club set is always the best option for beginners. Now, let’s move on to actually complicated question of which golf club set to buy.

Because of their popularity with beginners, almost all golf brands are selling golf club sets now. The best options are offered by these companies : Callaway, Wilson, TaylorMade. Callaway stands out with their Strata series, which cost between two and four hundred dollars, depending on how many clubs are in them. Wilson is on the more affordable end of the spectrum, but their club sets are enjoying great reviews by critics as well. They are killing it in terms of design of their clubs as well. Wilson’s clubs as well as bags are extremely stylish. Last, but definitely not least, TaylorMade offers great sets for women, such as Kalea set. It is much more expensive than the other two on this list, but even with that in mind, i think TaylorMade’s club sets are one of, if not the best values on the market.

Personally, i like Callaway Strata and think that it is the best budget option of them all. It is pretty affordable, 8 club set being priced at around two hundred dollars, and despite that, quality of the clubs is much higher than the standard for golf club sets. With them, you will actually get to experience golf as it is supposed to be experienced. Bags that callaway strata sets come with are very sturdy and convenient to carry around, another big plus for this set in my eyes. Sure, Wilson’s sets might be slightly more affordable, stylish and their irons might be slightly better than those of Callaway Strata’s, but overall, i think Strata sets are much better. If you don’t trust my judgement, this Callaway Strata club set review might be worth reading. One of my favorite features of Callaway Strata set is that this set is always available for right handed as well as left handed golfers. On top of that, if you are intermediate golfer or even more experienced, you can try Strata Ultimate set, which is pretty good for a club set that costs under four hundred dollars. Probably the best club set in it’s price range. Sets offered by TaylorMade are much more expensive, so they can’t be objectively compared. Still, if you are not concerned with budget, TaylorMade sets might be worth giving a shot.  Although i am a firm believer in a fact that beginner golfers should start out with affordable sets to test the waters before diving head in.

You can buy all of these club sets online as well as offline, but i recommend doing so in person. That way, you’ll be able to try out clubs in action and decide on which one suits your interests the best. Plus, offline retailers often offer wider selection of clubs than online stores do.
