Looking for a new hobby in 2021? It is a great time to get outside and onto the green in our current climate and so we bring you our guide to starting out as a new golfer. After specialising within the golf industry for over thirty years, we know which Golf Clubs are suited to each individual player, whether you’re brand new to the game, returning to play or looking for game-improvement.
As a new golfer, with a higher handicap compared to more experienced players, you’re seeking a club with forgiveness and a higher MOI (Moment of Inertia). These factors allow for more accuracy when playing and will aid you to prevent mishits, essentially making the ball easy to hit. A larger club head and a wide sole to get your ball in the air, will also enhance play further. Typically, a complete package set comes with a collection of irons, a driver, a fairway wood and a hybrid club, which is exactly what you need to get started.
So with our introduction covered, let us introduce our favourite sets of golf clubs for beginners…
Starting with the most affordable package set in our line up, the Wilson 1200 TPX Golf Package Set includes the essentials for you to start hitting the fairways from the get-go. With a total of ten clubs, a driver, #5 fairway wood, #5 hybrid club, Irons 6, 7, 8, 9, PW (pitching wedge), SW (sand wedge) and putter, the Wilson set covers all bases, while, allowing for you to add to your bag as you improve. A handy stand bag also included protects your equipment.
With a forged titanium composite driver of 460cc (in volume), the set aims to assist beginners in finding that sweet spot and making it easier to hit the ball. The weight of these clubs is carefully considered to encourage a low centre of gravity, with extreme perimeter weighting in the irons for greater accuracy on off-centre hits.
Unlike the others in this list, the Wilson 1200 TPX Package Set comes with a stand bag featuring ample storage pockets with easy access to accessories.

The Yonex Ezone Elite 2 driver features a grooveless, vertically polished face to improve accuracy by 30% compared to traditional horizontal grooves. Furthermore, the shaft is 4% lighter to provide increased swing speeds and ball flight.
Whilst this set is more costly than others, the value for money is included in the technology and research behind the clubs, to allow maximum forgiveness so that those with a high handicap can focus on game improvement.
