Bargain starter set for wanna be golfers £70 @ Just Golf Online

Found 10th May 2013
Ideal if your looking at taking up golf as the irons wont be of great quality but cheap enough for you not to be too bothered if you end up not liking the game and have to get rid of the set. Granted you will need to pick up a cheap driver and fairway/rescue wood but thats where 2nd hand items come into play.

The stand bag on its own is a good price with the standard double harness for carrying it and then the 14 dividers at the top. Plenty of storage space with a large pocket on the right hand side.

If i hadn't just bought a Wilson Deep Red bag this week, id have been all over this and tried to sell the irons. I definetly take the RRP with a pinch of salt, no way would these ever have been worth £350

And please if your going to vote leave a reason, it may benefit other people, Either Hot or Cold.

In my neck of the woods Golf is not a game you would be comfortable playing with such equpment even if they let you near the course. But I hate the game (note Game, not Sport ) so what do I know ! Nether Hot nor Cold for me.

Unfortunately i know too well what you mean, its even worse when you beat them with "inferior" equipment and they start trying to scrape together reasons why you shouldn't return.

probably better off going for these amazon.co.uk/gp/…125 graphite shafts always better for beginners

always better spending money on lessons than equipment

Not really, at beginners level a cheap graphite shaft will be just as bad as a standard steels. Plus that a pretty poor price for the choice of clubs, the small bag with little storage.

Granted it is a better selection of clubs as you could go out an play a round with them, where as the founders set would require you to obtain a putter at least. (I'd advise beginners not to worry too much about a driver to start with as the club naturally makes you focus towards 'how far can i hit this' rather than getting a consistent swing)

Maybe the title is a bit off the mark, as i said i would have bought this bag had i not just bought one.

Graphite shafts are too whippy for beginners.

Cant comment on that personally but i can agree. The last time i bought a set of irons was 10 years ago and my last lesson was longer than that.

no they are not, thats utter tosh graphite shafts are better if you have a slow swing, thats all.

These clubs are not actuall that bad, i play off 10 and a colleague (beginner) brought them to a company golf day actually surprised they are stainless steel head and the shafts are fine. he asked me to hit some shots to see and I would liken them to old callway bog berthas.

the anti golfer attitudes are worse than the golf snobs, as long as you can play you are welcome at my cluub, which is why it is thriving...

old school values are killing alot of snooty clubs and good riddance to them, but dont comment if you dont play them game
