Tips for beginners buying golf clubs for the first time

Whenever people decide to start playing golf and ask for recommendations on choosing golf clubs, i have to give them the same advice all the time. So i thought it would be more efficient if i wrote down everything that i have to say about the subject here. First and foremost, the most important advice i’d like to give is this : Unless you’re absolutely certain that you like playing golf, and will enjoy playing it for years in the future, don’t spend more than few hundred dollars on golf club set. I know so many people who do this – they buy stylish and hottest golf clubs, but after playing with them couple of times, they never use them anymore and instead these clubs end up either sold, or slowly decay in the storage. I think that’s the biggest waste when it comes to buying golf clubs. It’s better to try out waters of golf by dipping your toes first, rather than jumping straight in. I think renting golf clubs for the first few times you go golfing is a good way to do that. You can rent golf club sets that are very good and they will only cost you small fraction of purchasing cost  of those same clubs. Obviously, you don’t get to keep those rented clubs as they are not your property, but i think that shouldn’t be an issue when you’re just getting started. Other great way to test the waters of golf is by borrowing golf clubs from some of your friends who already play golf, if you have any. This is even cheaper and more efficient option for trying out golf, but it is contingent on you having friends who already play golf.

If you have your mind firmly set on buying golf clubs, i would recommend buying golf club set (such as Callaway Strata Ultimate). Getting them, instead of buying clubs individually, is smart because of many reasons. For once, club sets are much cheaper than what it would cost you to collect set of clubs that are as good as those that come with that set. It’s also convenient because Callaway makes these sets for left handed golfers like myself as well. For more about left-handed clubs, read this guide. They are priced that way because Callaway and other manufacturers find it more profitable to sell clubs as a package rather than trying to sell them one by one. They make more sales that way, so financially, it makes sense for golf club manufacturers to do it. These bundles of clubs also have other advantages. For once, they usually come with golf bags and other useful accessories, like headcovers. Basically, as a beginner, it makes the job of buying your first clubs extremely easy. Just buy the set and few other necessary accessories (like golf sneakers, gloves and probably an umbrella) and you’re good to go.

If you’re a beginner, one of the sets from Callaway Strata series is probably your best bet. Those sets aren’t all that expensive, but they come with everything a beginner might need to get started. On the other hand, All-hybrid golf club set by Majek would probably be my default choice if i were to name best club set for senior golfers. Those hybrids are designed to be easy to hit and very light in weight, both of which are very beneficial for the elderly golfers. Hybrids, in general, are famous for being much more forgiving than long irons. I would also recommend to pay attention to drivers and woods that come with any golf club set. They are very important in your golf game, and while you can’t expect golf club sets to come with best specimen of drivers, even among affordable clubs, some are better than others.

Some people expect a lot of quality and craftsmanship from club sets, and are disappointed when they get golf clubs that are decent, but not spectacular. If you want those types of clubs for cheap, your best shot is probably going for used golf clubs.

Learning to play golf – best practices, tips and tricks

Getting better at golf is something that almost every beginner golfer wants. How exactly to do it, is something very few of them know. There are some ways that have proven to be more or less effective, of course. Some people take golfing lessons, while others prefer to learn on the course, by themselves. They might get the aid of some videos, but that’s about as much tutelage they get. Still, you’ll see a lot of people who’ve learned to play golf many different ways. I wanted to discuss these different approaches, and voice my opinion on which one is the best, and why.

Before trying to improve your golf skills though, the first thing you should do is buy golf clubs. There are many opinions on which golf clubs beginners should buy, but if you ask me, it’s pretty simple. Novice golfers should always get something that’s cheap and decent. Cheap, because they shouldn’t be investing too much money into sport that they aren’t sure about, and decent, because crappy golf clubs won’t be good enough to teach them about golf clubs and golf in general. I think perfect example of this is the Callaway Strata Ultimate golf club set. It costs only around four hundred dollars, and it has everything a beginner golfer might ever need. There are other cheaper alternatives, like 11 piece-set from the same Callaway Strata series, but i think those aren’t good enough. Sure, when you’re just a beginner, it will be fine during your first year of playing golf, but predictably, you’ll soon grow out of them. Callaway Ultimate set, on the other hand, will be perfect as a beginner as well as once you get to be intermediate-level player, or even better.

First, let’s discuss the prospects of learning golf by actually playing it. You have probably heard the expression that the best way to learn something is to start doing it in practice. I think golf is no exception. Playing golf can be a great teacher, and the best part of it is, you don’t ever get tired, because you’re having fun while learning. Learning golf just by doing it has disadvantages of its own, i think. For once, you don’t have any feedback while you’re at it, so you can’t know what you’re doing right or wrong.You have to rely on guesswork and your intuition, but when it comes to playing golf properly, like most things, not everything is so intuitive.


That’s why i think combination of the two – golf lessons and actual practice – is the only way to progress in golf. If you’re spending so much on golf clubs and other gear, as well as golf course fees, it doesn’t make sense to not take golf lessons once in a while. At the very least, you can learn what mistakes you’re making, and correct it. Forcing yourself to find your own mistakes is wasted energy, i think. It’s much easier when you have someone else – in this case, golf instructor – guiding you. I’ve found combining a lot of practice with few golf lessons here and there to be very effective.

One thing is for sure that you can’t cheat the system. Better results in golf can’t be achieved through using more expensive golf clubs or other tricks like that. You have to be trying new things, in golf as well as in everything else, to fundamentally learn something. Affordable club sets will be fine for that at the beginning, and once you’re better, you can always upgrade to better clubs. I do prefer buying them used rather than brand new though. It saves a lot of money down the road, which allows me to buy more exciting golf accessories and gadgets.
