Callaway Men's Strata Complete Golf Club Set with Bag (12-Piece) is only $135. Seems to be a well received starter set.

u/chordnine · 4 pointsr/golf

I was in your EXACT position about 4 months ago. I'm developing my golf game and can't yet justify a large investment. I got the Calloway Strata 13-piece set and have been very pleased with the results. 4-5 Hybrid, 6-PW irons, 3 wood and driver. Decent walking bag does the job.

$189.99, 4.3 out of 5 stars, with free shipping from Amazon.

Good luck!

u/Ozznato · 3 pointsr/golf

You don't have any budget listed here, so I'll just throw out my perspective since last year was my first real foray into golf. I was gifted this set for my birthday in April last year, and played the past year about 2-3 times a week with it up until November. For $200 you're getting a Callaway starter set that will do probably exactly what you want it to, and have everything you need (bag, driver, hybrids, etc etc) to get you started. Is it a stellar set? absolutely not, but it will certainly get the job done.

So, right within the budget you have hinted at in your post given other sets, you're getting a set from a big brand. With that, I would throw the rest of your money at lessons and a pair of shoes if you're planning on playing a lot.

For a little bit of insight from my end, I played with this stock bag until October, when I got a new Driver, and then in December I got some new fairway woods and a new wedge. I probably didn't need the Driver, but I found that my game had benefited from the improved equipment. I can shoot 115-90 on any given day, broke 90 once, but never ended up taking any lessons (which I do regret, and will look into for next year).

If I were to do it all over again, I'd get the same set as above as a starter, spend about $150 on lessons, and then in the last few months of the season, if you've found yourself improved, reward yourself with a new club, even if its a used one. This way you know you can look forward to a new toy in your bag, without putting too much skin in your club game.

u/tiggs81682 · 3 pointsr/golf

I think I made nearly the exact same upgrade.

Was rockin' these that I bought for $100 used: (Though mine were orange, probably a version or two older)

Then ended up getting the Rocketballz HL from Sports Authority last year for around $250ish if I remember correctly. I'm gonna hit these for another year or so before replacing them. I need a new putter, 3wood and wedges this year so those will take priority.

u/Beesau · 3 pointsr/golf

This is what I got when I started. Driver is kinda meh but the rest are good to start with. If you get better get a used driver.

I got this because I wasn’t sure if I would like golf. Best 200 bucks I ever spent. Now I’m upgrading all the pieces

u/leoooooooooooo · 3 pointsr/golf

its back up 2 $118 now but ive been watching it for a while it goes up and down every few days

u/RodUru · 3 pointsr/golf

If you don't want to spend a lot, these could be good.

They're good for a person who still doesn't know if he's gonna stick with the sport. I am a beginner too and I know I should have bought this instead of buying some blades for 50 dollars.

Furthermore, you could obtain great iron bargains at 2ndswing.

u/crashXCI · 2 pointsr/golf

Agreed. For reference, $137 at time of posting

u/rdl2k9 · 2 pointsr/golf

I doubt you'll be disappointed. After playing a lot as a teenager then resorting to 2-3 times every couple of years and this year deciding to pick it back up, I took a lot of time before I bought this set. (my junker clubs got stolen) They are not the best clubs you will buy but they are a nice set. For $200 to get everything you need. I upgraded my irons to Ping G30's on a labor day weekend sale and if I had it to over again I would just keep the Strata's. Not because the G30's are bad. They are great and I love them. It's just that the clubs aren't holding me back, it's me. I still use the Driver, 3, 4h, 5h, SW, bag and really like them. You asked for a starter set at a decent price. That set is designed to be an entry point into golf. If you can get a set used you should do that, but for $200 those will be at your house in 2 days. I've never seen a bad review from anyone. Those that complain aren't arguing it from the viewpoint of someone looking for an entry level set. This is the I want to play golf but there are too many options set.

u/Hard_Whyard · 2 pointsr/golf

I was checking out some sets on Amazon and some of them go for $200-400.

Example. It has great reviews but I'm aware getting a good set shouldn't be inexpensive, and this feels like these clubs might fall apart on me. I hate to pick your brain here, but what do you think of those? For a beginner, how much should I be looking to spend for a complete set? I want a set that'll last until I'm ready to upgrade.

u/DBREEZE223 · 2 pointsr/golf

Cheap set off Amazon. Wilson Golf Women's 2017 Ultra Package Set, Right Hand, White

Something like this. No need to spend anything more. Don't let anyone talk you into spending over $200. Unless she is highly athletic and played baseball she won't be able to hit shit for awhile. Just be cheap. Brand new cheap looks better than slightly better ugly shit she still can't hit.

If you're giving her "lessons" just let her hit. Step in every 20 or so with a small correction and go back to hitting your own. Don't let it ruin the relationship

u/SCMSuperSterling · 2 pointsr/golf

on top of what /u/bl1ndvision said, FYI a complete rule-compliant set consists of 14 clubs max. Usually people do 3 iron-Pitching Wedge (Pw) (which is 3,4,5,6,7,8,9, PW) and Driver, Putter, 3-wood/5-wood, and a couple of wedges. Since 3 irons, and even 4 irons are difficult to hit, you could switch those out with a 3 hybrid/4 hybrid. The Strata set by Callaway generally seems to be recommended around here for a completely new set for beginners. Many will recommend you search ebay to piece together a used setup.

u/yellowpotatobus · 2 pointsr/golf

If you're really casual (Like you only play a couple times a year at most with friends and its a social thing), then quite honestly you might be ok with one of those "complete sets". Callaway Strata or Adams Tight Lies

If you want to start getting into the game, going to the driving range on your own, getting lessons, and playing regularly - then we can start hunting for some decent used sets to start off with, or some clones. Unless you are driving the ball 250 yards, or have a fast swing / fast tempo - then a regular shaft will be good to start with. From there we can scour websites, auctions, etc. to piece together a set fairly inexpensively. That way, when you start getting your swing together, you will start to get an idea of what you want/need and start replacing clubs these initial clubs with ones that fit your game.

So, if it were me: I would either get one of the complete sets (if you're really casual and just need a set to play with your buds a couple times a year), Or get a used 3w, a used 5w, a clone 5-pw set (This GigaGolf set is less than $100 right now), a used 50 gap wedge, a used 54 or 56* sand wedge, and find a putter you like. All regular shafted (wedges and putters you don't need to worry about flex, they are uniflex in most cases). If you are comfortable with a driver (ie you don't just slice it into the woods all day), then by all means grab one as well.

u/Meth10916 · 2 pointsr/golf

I have never played with this Wilson set but I bought this Strata set from Callaway and they have been very solid for me and also cheaper in price. I started golfing about 4 years ago and still have these as my main clubs. I am currently looking to upgrade to some more expensive clubs as I am starting to get a little more serious.

u/kryonickraken · 2 pointsr/golf

I got these as a gift.

If you have never played good name brand wedges then they will be fine. I had one good Cleveland wedge in my set so didn't care for the grinds on these. I like tinkering so I did my own customs grinds, did a gun blue finish, and threw on some good grips. I love them now.

u/print1n · 2 pointsr/golf

For a budget starter set with everything, I've heard good things about these.

It doesn't matter what you get when you first start, the important thing is that you start. Get anything. Be patient, practice, learn from others, ask questions, and enjoy the game. Don't get caught up in brand names for the time being or if RBZ irons are going to be better for you that MP-54s. Just get out there, have fun, and play.

u/Triplethreat7 · 2 pointsr/golf

Anyone can afford these..Texan-3 for $50

u/UNCLE_ROBOCOP · 2 pointsr/golf

In your situation, since you already have your cousin willing to give you their old irons, I would put whatever money you're going to spend into getting a new wedge - wood/hybrid - driver. But if you don't like the bag or the feel of the old clubs get the knockoff set. I got these a couple years ago and upgraded the essential's from there. I got a new putter first then hybrid, wedge, driver. Take your cousin's clubs out for a few rounds and see how you like them.

u/Soiledmahpants · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is an AMAZING driver...

u/RdmGuy64824 · 2 pointsr/golf

I recently bought a Pinemeadow 64 degree wedge for $10 bucks on amazon just because it was so cheap and well reviewed. I'm actually really impressed.

They have full sets that are really cheap and well reviewed:

I would definitely pick these over my starter Strata clubs if I could do it all over again.

u/somermike · 2 pointsr/golf

came here to say this. I just picked up one of these: and put one of these grips on it:

So much better than my old blade that came with my starter set.

u/squeaky_sk8r · 2 pointsr/golf

I learned with the Wilson Ultra package set: Wilson Ultra. It was a good set to start with and make sure I was going to stick with golf. I upgraded after a while once I had taken lessons and decided I like playing.

This driver is getting some serious positive reviews on amazon. I eventually went with one from a daily deal, but this is at least worth some consideration. Tec Driver

u/huiuiui · 1 pointr/golf

Get a milled Never Compromise. They used to be $299, but apparently never became popular. I have the Connoisseur Portofino and it is the best putter I have had so far.

u/LocutusOfOrc · 1 pointr/golf

Recently switched from an Odyssey Marxman to this Never Compromise Portofino

Absolutely love it so far. My distance control has improved a lot and I've averaged 32putts/round since the switch

u/paradism720 · 1 pointr/golf

This it's currently $38. I had one when I started again and didn't know if I'd get back into golfing for real. Used it for 2 plus years. Hit it very well is very forgiving. I will say I bought myself one when it was just $25 so maybe they fluctuate. I still have mine in case I ever need a backup or a buddy needs a club. I have hit this consistently around 250.

u/mikehoncheezy · 1 pointr/golf

I got mine from Amazon. I love this driver, it's light and has a nice sweet spot. You will love it, it's even cheaper now, I got mine when it was still $117.00

u/SheCutOffHerToe · 1 pointr/golf
u/apollosmith · 1 pointr/golf

You could probably get a well-used set at a thrift shop or eBay for <$100. But you'll probably be piecing together various clubs.

You can get this very adequate complete, new set on Amazon for $220 -

u/CMilkyFresh · 1 pointr/golf

Just bought these myself :
Not a complete set as it doesn't come with bag or putter. I'm just getting back into golf and I've played 3 times with these so far and I love them. They are clones of Taylormade Rocketballz. For $130 its a steal as far as I'm concerned.

u/speck60 · 1 pointr/golf

also bought this
I liked the name and it was on sale. Any thoughts or suggestions?
I used to use an old set of dunlop diamond max, and the face was kinda small, and used an old wood driver

u/rutlander · 1 pointr/golf

These are what I've gamed for the last few years. Moderately priced and good feel. I slapped a set of midsize lampkins on there and I've been happy with them. ~$40 shipped for three wedges

u/SickZX6R · 1 pointr/golf
u/Rob_035 · 1 pointr/golf

On a shoestring budget you’ll have to know that you probably won’t get the latest and greatest clubs, but you can certainly still get some sticks that’ll work.

Keep in mind the recurring costs of the game with your $140 initial budget (balls namely, tees to a lesser extent, green fees etc.)

There are some box sets of clubs that are pretty cheap. Wilson, Nitro, for example.

You can also try and piece together a set from goodwill, lots of people donate their older clubs and they sell them back for pennies on the dollar.

u/Salsa-N-Chips · 1 pointr/golf

What does everyone think about Pinemeadow? Specifically this set

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/golf

As I posted in the daily deal thread, look on amazon 79.99 and up w/ and prime shipping! example

u/alextron · 1 pointr/golf

I bought this putter when I was drunk on amazon one night and I love it. Eventually threw a superstroke on it.

u/MinuteOfAngle · 1 pointr/golf

Those look rather old. I found a more modern set by Falcon called the Fireblade and it seems like they are primarily sold in the UK. If you need clubs tomorrow and thats all you can find they should at least be able to get you on the course. If you had more time you could certainly do better than that set for the money. I would probably up the budget to 150-200 and get a starter set from Intech, Goden Bear, Wilson, PineMeadow or whatever brand your local big box store stocks. Something like this $189 Callaway Strata set or this $119 Confidence set or this $166 Wilson set are all miles better technology and quality wise especially if you plan to keep playing after this event.

I remember having a Falcon brand bowling ball 15+ years ago, if I had to take a guess they were a low end sporting good manufacturer for a few years and then were sold off or changed names.

From another perspective, it might be worth it just for the putter. Looks like an older BeCu Anser.

Edit: I had a look at the search results for golf clubs on craigslist for your area and in the same price range the Walter Hagen, Tommy Armour, and Acuity sets are all much better options that the set you posted.

u/SnerPnNerf · 1 pointr/barstoolsports

Good to know. Are the clubs on Amazon that are under $200 any good? Like these Callaways?

u/hurijo · 1 pointr/golf

Not really a Prime Day deal and I know we don't really like these bundled sets, but the Callaway Strata 12-piece set is at it's low of $125. Might be good for that someone not sure about committing to golf.

u/justwanttolurk · 1 pointr/Charlotte

You can get a complete Callaway set w/ a bag brand new on Amazon but I guess it depends on what 'decent' means to you.

u/dwd3885 · 1 pointr/golf

The Wilson is used and $100 this is just the amazon link.

u/iamproph · 1 pointr/golf

When my brother started, we picked up a full set off Amazon. They aren't great, but if you hit a quality shot the ball goes where it should. As he slowly got better, we added in new clubs one at a time (first a real driver, then some nice wedges, etc).

u/obihave · 1 pointr/golf

Amazon has Call away GBB driver brand new for 169.99. the same club is going for 170 "like new" at Callaway preowned

u/i_have_the_waffles · 1 pointr/golf

I started the same way you did started with a set of clubs about 25 years old then once i realized how much i liked golf i upgraded to these and love them. it also comes in a 16 and 18 piece set the bag is also very nice which makes it worth it. The irons are all very consistent with a nice sweet spot once you get your form down and i personally fell in love with the 5 hybrid (my dad doesnt like it) The driver is very nice too i learned on this set and after playing about 6 months i can drive about 250yds.

u/Dave_Messina · 1 pointr/golf

You can get excellent used clubs from several places, for example Global Golf as mentioned in another comment.

Alternatively just buy the [Callaway Strata set](Callaway Men's Strata Set (12-Piece, Right Hand)

u/Wesquire91 · -5 pointsr/golf

There's no fitting that can be done with that budget. You are going to have to deal with something like this for now
