If you’re just getting into golf, you’ll need the proper toolset to flourish. We’ve done the work of compiling a list of the 3 best clubs for beginners—all you have to do is find the perfect match for you! Note that most club sets don’t include golf gloves, but we recommend them as well to ensure a tight grip and ultimate comfort on the course.

Callaway Strata Complete

Callaway is one of the most prominent manufacturers in the industry, producing excellent clubs in a range of styles. The Strata Complete is a very affordable set and includes everything you need for the game of golf: a bag, a driver, a 3-wood, a 5-hybrid, 6- to 9-irons, a pitching wedge, and a mallet putter. The 5-hybrid is the most forgiving of clubs and perfect for beginners because it’s much easier to use than long irons. The irons and wedges are designed with weight technology that allows more control over the club and your drives. The T-Style mallet putter increases the moment of inertia, leading to a much-improved miss-hit performance.


Pinemeadow PRE Golf Set

Though it’s the most expensive of the three listed here, the Pinemeadow 16 piece set sets (see what we did there?) itself apart as a quality golf set. In it you’ll find 11 golf clubs with varying angles of loft, giving you the ability to perfect your swing under different conditions. The 10.5 degree loft is uncommon in a beginner’s golf set because it doesn’t provide as much elevation, but it does improve the strength and speed of your swing. As with most beginner sets, the package comes with a standard hybrid with a 20 degree loft angle designed to mimic the long irons, making the transition a bit easier on beginners. People rave about the included Pinemeadow stand bag, which is spacious and comfortable to carry on your back, offering two backpack straps and many interior pockets.

Wilson Ultra Complete

This golf set includes 10 clubs in total and offers high quality at a low value. A possible downside of these clubs are the graphite shafts, which decrease the speed of swing and therefore can lower the distance of your shots. However, it does have incredible benefits for the golfing novice. The 460 cc titanium driver’s large face boasts a huge sweet spot and a low center of gravity that promises very long distances and an effortless launch off the club face. The fairway wood and hybrid have a smaller head than the driver, and yet they still provide impressive loft and are quite forgiving for your performance. The irons pair a large sweet spot and perimeter weighting, sending your shots flying straight and narrow.
