Beginner golfers often see professionals use beautiful blades and all sorts of high end clubs, and want to use those themselves, but often, reality just doesn’t align with that expectation. First of all, those golf clubs are crazy expensive, and even if a beginner golfer were to afford them, they wouldn’t have the skills necessary to play with them, so it would go to waste. But beginners do have to buy some kind of clubs, otherwise, they can’t play. That’s exactly why i decided to write this post – to help beginners buy their first golf club set.
The biggest problem that beginners often face is very wide pool of options. Recently, so many manufacturers have started making golf clubs and furthermore, entire club sets for beginners. At first glance, all of them seem great, so it can be kind of hard for beginners to make a decision. The worst thing is that if they choose their golf clubs wrong, their life will be made much more difficult because of that mistake. So that fact adds further stress to the process of choosing golf clubs as a beginner.
First and foremost, when you’re shopping for golf clubs, you must make sure to try the golf club out in person before buying it. No matter what advertisements or reviews might tell you, you can’t know how well golf club will work for you unless you try it out yourself. There are too many things that can go wrong, and price is too high to risk anything going wrong. Generally, when it comes to golf clubs like driver, woods, irons and hybrids, you have to choose between power and accuracy of the club. Beginners usually opt for more powerful clubs while sacrificing a little bit of accuracy. The reason for that is usually to make up for their swing-related and other mistakes. That’s why best golf clubs for beginners are called forgiving clubs. They forgive certain mistakes and allow novice players to still get decent results. Certain type of forgiving clubs is called draw drivers. These are the drivers designed to fix slicing problems and they’re awesome. There are also offset drivers, but in my opinion, draw drivers are much better for variety of reasons. I don’t want to get into that here, so see this guide as a reference.
If you’re just a beginner, you don’t need any more than eight or at most, ten clubs. You don’t need them because you won’t know how to use fourteen clubs on the golf course anyway. Because of small number of clubs included in them, you are also likely to get a discount. In my opinion, the best club sets for beginners are made by Callaway, and they sell them under their Strata umbrella brand. I’ve heard good things about Wilson and other brands as well. These affordable beginners’ club sets are very good in quality and only include limited amount of clubs, which, as we’ve covered, is perfect for beginners. They usually include a driver, one wood, few irons and a putter. That’s more than enough for any beginner looking to get started on the course. Best of all, these sets also usually include stand bag, which is very convenient. First of all, you don’t have to buy it separately, and second of all, you don’t have to worry about whether your clubs will fit in your bag. Designer of the clubs and the bag will make sure of that.
