Golf Clubs Beginner Guide

Don’t know how to choose a Golf Club Complete Sets? Golf Clubs Beginner Guide is just for you! Here you’ll get some tips on what you should draw your attention to before choosing your first golf clubs set.

There are two most important things in golf:

  1. The fist and obvious one – how to choose and buy the right complete golf clubs set.
  2. The second one is to find a good trainer.

When you are starting to learn how to play golf your coach will definitely recommend you to buy a complete golf set as those sets are great for beginners. Golf sets costs less, so purchasing golf clubs and golf bag separately could be very expensive and unreasonable.

Golf Club Complete Sets include:

  • Wood-headed clubs
  • putters and irons plus hybrid clubs – combined woods and iron.

There should be 14 golf clubs in your bag, make sure you’ve counted them right. Sets are divided into following groups: womens golf club sets, Ladies Golf club sets, kids golf club sets, junior golf club sets, mens golf club sets, etc. Golf sets could be left or right handed as well.

Our tips how to choose the right golf set.

Appraise your interest and time to how much you are willing to spend playing golf – every week, twice a month or once a year.  If you’ve made a decision to play from time to time it’s a key to buy not an expensive clubs and balls. Professionals say that buying very expensive first set and balls is not a good idea. As for balls, could you imagine how many balls you’ll never find again while you are training? Buy more expensive balls after you improved your golf skills.

  • How much you are willing to spend? Golf Clubs Beginner Guide tip:

Decide how much you are ready to spend. Price range for complete sets could from hundreds to thousands dollars, so it would be better to set your budget first. Choose wisely. The right thing would be not to buy too expensive set as it could be just wasting your money, but if you have enough funds to spend and want to buy all top of the line clubs, just go for it.

  • Which one to choose – new or used golf set? Golf Clubs Beginner Guide tip:

New or used club sets to buy? All new is good but could burn the whole in your pocket. Used clubs set could be a bargain but be very cautious. Before purchasing, double check all clubs with a lot of attention! If there are missing head covers or worn grips etc – do not buy it! Discuss your misgivings with a seller. If you are not going to spend much money on your first clubs set or not sure about your dedication of golf or will may be drop the idea of playing golf after couple of games, used clubs might be a good choice.

Steel or graphite set – which one should your buy? Golf Clubs Beginner Guide tip:

Fundamental of golf shafts that new golf players should pay attention to is shaft composition. There are two possible variations: steel or graphite and shaft flex (how much the shaft bows during the swing). Graphite is much lighter and can help generate swing speed.  Steel is more durable and cheaper. Women, juniors or seniors will probably benefit from graphite shafts with a softer flex. Younger, stronger men might go with regular or stiff shafts, but keep in mind that most teaching pros say that many golfers use shafts that are too stiff.

Another great tip would be to ask your friends or colleagues who golf. You can visit your local golf shop and ask them for recommendations, look around, and compare the prices.  No matter what type of clubs set you’ll choose golf worth your efforts.

Another great tip would be to buy a book or training dvd.If you are fan of dvds – we would highly recommend you to buy “Phil Mickelson: Secrets of the Short Game“. It’s really worth your dollar. If you would like to read the right book – then “Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf” would be the right choice.

Check books and dvd’s listed below – you’ll find some great ones for sure.
