Package sets are an ideal option for new golfers and those returning to the game
With more and more golfers who are either new to the game or returning to the course after years away, the recent golf boom has introduced a greater number of people to the sport.
It has also resulted in significant demand for new equipment, and among the hottest sellers have been package sets of golf clubs ideal for beginning golfers, players on a budget, or those whose equipment is outdated.
“Not many new golfers want to jump into the deep end with a full set of custom-fit, top-of-the- line clubs,” said Lee Smith, Manager of the Edwin Watts Golf Shops in Corpus Christi, Texas. “With a package set you get everything, it’s all new, and the price is usually within budget.”
Package sets vary in what they offer, with some featuring the maximum allowable 14 clubs. Most include a driver, one or two fairway woods, two or three hybrids, irons, one or two wedges and a putter. Prices can vary from $300 to $1,300, and most manufacturers offer sets for men, women and juniors. The clubs typically fall into the game-improvement category and are ideal for high handicappers, but are durable and can be a terrific option as a starter set.
“The quality of package sets today is really quite good, and a lot better than it was previously,” Smith said.
Here’s a look at a few of the sets available:
CALLAWAY REVA – These sets are among the most popular for women new to the game, partly because they offer a high-quality product at a reasonable price. There’s an 8-piece set that includes a cart bag and headcovers, as well as an 11-piece set that gives you everything you need to get started in the game or to upgrade your equipment. SHOP HERE.
TAYLORMADE KALEA 3 – This set is another excellent option for women, providing players with slower swing speeds a higher ball ﬂight and more distance. Speed Pocket technology throughout the set makes these clubs extra forgiving, and softer ﬂex shafts promote a high launch. The Premium Spider Putter included has a Pure Roll insert in the face for added conﬁdence on the greens. SHOP HERE.
WILSON PROFILE SGI – These sets come in at a lower price point than other options on the market, but you won’t sacriﬁce quality. It’s billed as the world’s only “Custom Fit in a Box” offering because there are 13 different options available, and new golfers can customize length, loft, ﬂex and grip size. There are options for men, women, seniors and juniors. The clubs are designed to promote easy launch and forgiveness on off-center strikes to help newer golfers enjoy the game. SHOP IN-STORE.
