I’ve been playing golf for four years now. I usually play golf on weekends, but sometimes, if my work schedule allows, during weekdays as well. I’ve had a lot of experience with different golf clubs and other golf accessories, and i have a lot of people asking me for advice. Which is nice at first, but repeating the same advice thousand times can get a little bit boring. So i decided to compile all my advice, tips and tricks and put them in one accessible article, which is easily accessible and can be read by anyone looking for advice.


As a beginner, in my opinion, defining your budget is the smartest thing to do. Minimum budget can be as low as two or three hundred dollars, and for maximum, sky is the limit. But even if you can afford top notch clubs, it won’t make much difference in the starting phase of your game. You will be constantly defining and discovering new things about your golf game, and it’s just easier to do that with cheaper golf clubs. At least you won’t have to worry about losing them or having them stolen and you can upgrade your clubs anytime anyway.
With that being said, my favorite budget golf club sets have to be the Strata series from Callaway. These clubs have it all – craftsmanship and quality is decent enough to last you for years, brand is very famous and trusted, and it comes with handy accessories like cool bag or headcovers for the clubs. There are other options like club sets from Wilson and Adams, but if i had to recommend just one affordable starter golf club set to someone, it would be Strata set. They have clubs for different prices as well. The only difference is the number of clubs, which isn’t really that important in the beginning. The 12 piece club set will have every single club that you’ll need for at least few years.
If you don’t like prospect of paying few hundred dollars for a club of set that is decent enough, but not great, and want top notch club set right away, buying used golf clubs might be the solution you’re looking for. Used clubs usually cost half the price, and they are widely accessible to buy on eBay, craigslist, globalgolf and many other websites. There might also be local used golf club store near where you live, so it’s worth checking out. But i must warn that there are risks associated with used golf clubs. Just to name a few, the clubs might not be in very good shape or someone might try to sell you counterfeit club. I’d stick with GlobalGolf when ordering used clubs online – their service is unmatched.
