Lots of people are deciding to take up golf right now. If you’re one of those people — or you’re a former golf coming back to the game — welcome! We’re happy to have you. Golf is a game you can play for the rest of your life and, critically right now, it’s a way to spend several hours outside getting great exercise and spending time with people.
However, if you’re a beginner golfer, you may not have golf clubs, or a bag, or a lot of the things you need to actually play golf. You might be wondering what the best golf clubs are for beginners. We’re here to help!
When I started playing golf almost 25 years ago, my parents (I was 12) bought me my first set from a used sporting goods store. They bought me a set of clubs for adults that had every other iron in it (3-, 5-, 7- and 9-iron). A year or two later, I got a full set of Wilson irons.
