...fancy a round of golf

Any mt members play golf? I used to play a long time ago but with the weather improving and lots of good courses around me im thinking of starting again.....only one problem, found my old clubs and they are way 2 small!!! Thats how long it has been!!!

So I guess id better pick up a complete kit, however im a bit clueless on good makes and decent places to look for a good value complete set of clubs to get me back into it? Any ideas? Links would be great or even suitable good makes etc.

    £200 - £300 id say if can find something around that price bracket.

    Wouldnt wanna go ott as just fancy getting back into it.....but then again i dont wanna buy krap lol. Budgets flexible as wud be prepared to spend a bit more if was gettin a good deal, always set a max spend then find a bargin end up spending more haha

    Guess ill take a look around some shops, u guys both play yourself?

    American golf discount centres. The home of most major driving ranges.
    Go in and be honest and they'll hook u up with everything needed to start for what ever your budget. £200 willl buy you enough to start off with easily.

    im about to start, been going down the driving range having a prctice and i can now hit the ball hahaha
    going to buy myself a set this year and start playing with my dad as he's just foudn himself a new hobby.

    im just going to get a beginner set for about £150, not really worth spending more unless its going to be a regular thing.
    look on sites like 118golf.co.uk and onlinegolf.co.uk they do package deals from £99 up to a few hundred.
    or you could go on ebay and buy a set from someone that is giving up...?

    Good little starter set up if you are comfortable with the clubs. Personally id rather have 3-sw irons than hybrid woods but thats up to you... This is why you need to go and have a feel yourself.
    Still not bad @ £150. Eventually get yourself a proper driver (this takes time to learn anyway so not essential straight away) and decent putter and your done.

    Cheers for that. & Thanks to all who have posted having a look at the sites & ebay and looks like a lot of choice for a good starter kit pretty affordable also.

    Think there is an americangolf shop not far from my place also which is a bonus. Cheers red man guna take a trip ther nxt weekend.

    Go for it mate, just dont take a credit card, you may get carried away... Oh and if you see something cheaper elsewhere (in a shop) most golf stores will price match.
    1 final thing, buy lake balls or re-surfaced balls. I get mine from the asda, 12 decent balls (top flite etc) is about £5. You will lose many balls in the first few games so dont get conned into buying titleist balls straight away. Good balls are better but only when you know how to hit them, dont buy cheap sh1te though. Avoid Donnay balls at all cost!!!

    If you have between 200-300 to spend get on ebay and get yourself a good seconfd hand set of cavity backs from titleist, mizuno calloway ping or taylor made any of the big names stay away from cheap crap you will only want to up grade in the long run anyway. The single best thing you can spend your money on is lessons if you intend to play to a resonable standard becuase lets face it no one wants crap scores.

    Forgot to say stay away from gimmick clubs to start with you wont be able to control long irons or any club with a steep face so you will need high woods 5 and 7 to replace the long irons dont be put off by people sayingt here womens clubs macho bullcrap in golf can cost you shots .
