A “Great set” would be a cheap set, until you know you will like golf and want to invest a lot of money into it, then you want to pay as little as possible. If you are very new to golf and you are buying golf items for the first time, you’d better look to purchase some cheap used golf clubs instead of betting on those expensive top brand clubs. If you are a beginner golfer, used golf clubs are probably your best bet.
What would a good set of used clubs usually cost?
All depends on the brand, type and set of clubs. Usually, irons come from 3 to Pitching wedge sets. You also need a driver, a fairway wood, a sand wedge and a putter. Get cavity back irons. They are the best type of irons for a starter golfer. One thing you can do is look up on eBay the brand and set that your coach is selling you and compares prices.
You need to look for the following aspects in buying used golf clubs:
- Fit: that is how they swing for a person of your height.
- Quality: most clubs in to days used market are of high quality but some may have deep scars on the face of the club or even slightly bent shafts. Avoid at all costs or the money you saved by buying used golf clubs will be eaten up in repairs.
- Gut Feeling: Some times you look at clubs and a little bell goes. If you really like the clubs, you will hit them better.
