As a PGA Golf Instructor, I am frequently asked to recommend golf club sets for beginners. The most important factor in finding the best golf club sets for beginners is cost and quality. I see so much money wasted on bad clubs that were cheap, and used clubs that don't fit . On this page I will feature golf clubs I recommend to my beginner golf students. These clubs will fit your beginner golf budget and needs. If you are a woman, please visit the Women's Golf page to find my golf suggestions for you.
I have tested all of the clubs on this page. Beginner golf clubs must meet my criteria of price, quality and playability. These clubs meet or surpass my criteria. You can feel confident purchasing any of these beginner golf sets. If you are looking for the complete box set, scroll down to beginner golf sets between $200- $500, and the best beginner set under $200.
Comprehensive Guide For Beginning Golfers:
I have created a Comprehensive Guide For Beginning Golfers, through a new online platform called CoachTube. It contains 11 instructional videos that will teach beginners the most important fundamentals of the preswing, full swing, putting, and chipping. These fundamentals should be learned by all golfers from adults to juniors. The cost of the course is just $29.95. That is one third the cost of a private lesson with me, $85, and you will receive 6 lessons worth of information. For visitors to this website I am offering a 20% discount on the course. Just use the promo code "golfshopper" and you will get the course for $23.90.
You will have online access to the videos 24/7, 365 days a year. Click here to visit CoachTube and see more about my course, and watch my introductory video.
Beginner Golf Sets from $200-$500
Adams Golf makes some great complete golf sets that are perfect for beginner men and women golfers. The golf club quality is excellent and the prices are great. The current Adams complete sets are the Speedline and Speedline Plus sets. The Speedline Plus set comes with one more hybrid, the 4h. You can find the Adams Speedline Set for $399 and the Speedline Plus set for $499. I am not sure the one extra club, for most beginners, is worth the extra $100. If you are a more advanced player, then the extra club is worth the money.
What I like about Adams Golf and these sets, is the price has stayed the same over the past few years. They offer the beginning golf an affordable and quality set of clubs. You can play with this set for years to come. They also come in a left handed set.
My two favorite beginner golf club sets, for both men and women, under $200, are Confidence golf sets and the Palm Springs Visa Golf Clubs. Each set is complete with woods, hybrid, irons, putter, and bag. They are all you need to get started and several sets are available in left handed. What separates these sets from other beginner golf sets are the shafts. The shafts in the two sets are stiff enough to give you the solid feel at impact. Men should stay away from inexpensive sets with graphite shafted irons. I would recommend the steel shafted irons in these sets. The graphite shafts in the woods and hybrids are good. Click the links below for more information and prices of the individual sets. Visit the Womens Golf page for the selection of ladies clubs.
Most beginner golfers do not need a full set of clubs. At the beginning you will find that there is very little distance difference between irons. This is because you do not hit the ball solid yet, and you have not learned to create club head speed correctly. I love a company that will allow you to order golf clubs a la cart. GigaGolf is one such company. You can order any club you want, which allows you to create a custom beginner set. This is great, because as your game improves, and you figure out which clubs you like best (hybrids or irons) you can fill in your set later. This option is a great money saver. So instead of buying a complete beginner set that you will want to replace in a year, you buy clubs you will use for a long time.
The sample partial set I usually recommend looks like this:
Driver 10.5 degrees of loft
5 Fairway wood
6, 8, and PW
Take a look at GigaGolf's TRX line of clubs. They are designed with the beginner in mind. For more information on GigaGolf see my complete review on the Component Page of this site.
