Best clubs for a beginner

184 viewsEquipment

I am new to golf and I want to purchase my first set of clubs. I did a bit of research, am I required to purchase a full set of 14 clubs in order to play or can I get by with a single club like a driver? Also, what clubs would you recommend for a brand new player?


There is no rule that specifies a minimum amount of clubs, but most courses require each player to have their own set. Many people who play golf for recreation or exercise carry about 7 clubs in a lightweight bag. A sample set may be as follows…

Driver, Fairway Wood OR hybrid, 6 iron, 8 iron, Pitching Wedge, Sand Wedge OR Lob Wedge, and Putter.

Hope this helps!
