Cheap golf sets for the beginner

New golfers often think they need to splurge on an expensive new set of golf clubs when they start playing. However, while they might be the obvious choice for the professional, there's no reason why amateurs need to shell out a huge amount of money, especially if they're not sure they'll stick with their new hobby. There are a number of options open to beginners searching for cheap golf sets.

The cheapest option for beginners may not even involve buying a new set of clubs at all. There are a huge variety of used golf sets advertised for sale on internet sites such as Ebay. Classified newspaper adverts, car boot sales, and second hand shops are other good places to look for used clubs. Some of these sets are in very good condition and those with an eye for a bargain may be able to get a great deal.

For those who want to be certain they are buying clubs from recognised names, sites such as golfbidder.co.uk might be ideal. Golf Bidder specialises in used golf clubs and also allows customers to bid on items. Customers can often buy designer items, including those manufactured by Calloway and Ping, at a much reduced price. While this site has significant benefits, it's worth noting that clubs will need to be purchased individually, and the golf set built up on a club by club basis.

Beginners who aren't fussy about the make of their clubs can buy some cheap brand new golf sets. These sets may not be the best available on the market, but most of them are good enough for the novice. Check out the range available at sports shops and golf outlets, as well as general retailers, such as Amazon.

While it's easy to get hung up on the quality of golf clubs, the most important part of taking up golf is learning how to play properly. Money spent on expensive golf clubs could perhaps be better invested in golf lessons. Buying a single high quality item, such as a top of the range driver, could be a good option for those looking for a balance between cost and quality. Remember, it's always possible to upgrade clubs or move on from cheap golf sets as your game improves.
