I dont play golf, but can spot a bargain....these look like a bargain and a half at this price delivered or less using the coupon.

2 Woods, 1 Hybrid, 3 to 9 irons, PW

The rigid steel shafts and stainless heads on the irons give unrivalled control when approaching the green, whilst the graphite shafted woods will improve your distance off the tee.

They also have a set of Dunlop T line irons Product Code: 876050 on sale for just £40 but you would need to buy something else to get the over £50 free delivery to kick in.

the problem with these is, the rrp is well out of line with what they actually are worth and retail for at other places, i personally would put an rrp of £99 on these
#3
Rrp inflated a little.....

voted hot for a starter set, especially if you wangle delivery

Very much "beginners" clubs! "Dunlop" is Mike Ashley's golfing brand name. Most of what they sell are low quality rebadged Far Eastern produced. Was £499 is just having a laugh.

Nevertheless a bargain if you just want to try your hand at golf - equivalent to a few hires from your local municipal course and probably better quality than the average hire set!

I can't think that there's any profit in these for SportsDirect so this should get BitterWallet to move them nearer the top of its "about to go under" companies list. :roll:

RRP of £499...no and just no.

Not a bad price for a starter set of clubs but I doubt they are any more than - wouldn't swap my £299 Mizuno's for em anyway!!

I wouldnt even swap my £150 RAM set for them..Infact I would not touch these and expect the club heads to come loose...go flying etc

Sportsworld or Donnay will have them at similar prices but I'd agree - beginners only - ladies don't buy your husband these as a surprise - if they play golf they'll wrap them around your pretty necks!! : = )

My thoughts - don't buy rubbish clubs.

A friend of mine had a set of dunlops from Sports Soccer and the heads came off 2 completely and a few of the others were loose - he managed to get a full refund in the end after a heated discussion with the store manager.

My advice - spend a bit more and get a decent set, it will pay off in the long run, especially if you are going to play regularly.

I invested in a set of Ping's years ago and they are still in fantastic shape :thumbsup:

To be fair, these clubs are probably about the same as the cheap ones Argos sell. As you can get a set of 8 irons, 2 woods, a putter and a bag for £48.79 at Argos (an Onyx ZX Pro starter Set!), this is not a particularly good deal. The odds are that the Onyx and Dunlop clubs are made in the same (or adjacent) factories in Taiwan!

Argos do sell a set of Dunlop clubs for £136.99 which carry the strange warning "A different brand named item may be received of the same specification, but cosmetically different." :whistling:
#10
Ah I still remember with fondness my mate rocking up to the driving range with his new set of Donnays....and how we laughed at the first time he swung his new driver and the club head went further than the ball....at least he had a nice pointy stick with grip left to point towards the rest of his club....
#11
Good price.

A friend of mine has these, suppose they are OK for a starter set but you are better off getting the Hippo set recently posted.

Bit cheap and nasty
#13
Good starter set, may be better getting a second hand set to see if you have the dedication not to mention the time.

I paid a lot of money for my set some years back but due to the onset of kids I dont seem to have the time anymore.
#14
Wouldn't touch these with 2 barge poles.

yeh, dunlop is now owned by sports direct, so the brand has lost some value.

you get what you pay for - though £50 is a good price - if they last

(saying that i have a dunlop squash racquet that is quite good)

Don't go anywhere near these, I had 4 rounds with mine and the heads started coming off.
#17
OK - if these are just dross can anyone point me in the direction of a decent starter set for my 9 year old as he is thinking of taking up golf.

Thanks

Does anyone know where I can find the deal for the Hippo set posted recently?

Go to the golf pro shop at your local course. Particularly if it's a course that offers beginners' lessons, the chances are that they'll have some decent second hand clubs of the right size. Otherwise, try American Golf (or one of the other specialist chains) where you can try them out and they have someone who knows something about the equipment. Unless you know exactly what you're doing (and, perhaps, even if you do), SportsDirect, Argos etc are a false economy!

check your local paper for second hand or put a want ad in then you'll have a choice.
Second hand clubs are almost worthless so you should pick up something half decent for very little. People generally want to encourage young golfers anyway. You'll need junior clubs for a nine year old btw
I got a half set of the dunlops for my 5yr old grandson a couple of years back (Donnay shop) they were £35 and they have been fine. Not Tiger Woods you understand but he has battered the ball around and the heads are still on the shafts

A full sized set would be too long for a 9 year old. You'd be better off buying three or four clubs from JJB for kids. He'll out-grow them in no time so don't spend too much money.

Second hand clubs are almost worthless


I'd say that's rubbish, to be honest with you. For a 9 year old who may or may not want to continue playing after the first couple of games, I would say second hand is the only way to go. Plus... all kids who start playing golf at that age won't keep those clubs for more than a year, as they grow too much.

Members at our club who have their kids playing with them tend to have specific brands for their kids, but I can't remember what they're called now. Masters or something is one of them. There is also a Nike brand of junior clubs. I'd bet you'd be able to find a cheap second hand set in most golf shops that have been traded in or at a club's pro-shop.

I certainly wouldn't recommend paying for new when you don't know if the kid's gonna like the game or not. Anything new is just a status symbol for your golf buddies! ;)

Did you read the message? He said 'almost worthless so go pick up a bargain' i.e. buy used.
He meant worthless money wise not usefulness. Agreed, but find someone who knows something about golf to help you - who plays to a reasonable standard. There's a lot of garbage out there. And nobody needs a full set to start with.
#26
If he is 9 - best go Callaways or something - don'r scrimp - just look how much Tiger earns and he started even younger so your child is already behind and the only way he can catch up is by spending at least 2 grand on clubs......otherwise he will never beat Tiger and you will never have that mansion full of Playboy bunnies...and all because you only spent £50 on clubs..... *




*This may or may not happen in the event of splurging 2 grand on clubs.

Correct. You'll get a good deal on second hand or just buy a few clubs or borrow till you see if there's an interest. Please give him every encouragement - there's nothing bewtter than seeing kids on the course and not out in town getting up to no good. We need all the potential champs we can get
