Buying advice for Golf Packages & Golf Sets

Buying guide for Golf Packages & Golf Sets Shop for Golf Packages & Golf Sets For those who are new to golf, the vast range of drivers, putters, fairway woods and irons can be a bit overwhelming. Without much knowledge, it is difficult to wade through all the choices as you’re just beginning to discover your game. A good investment for those just starting out is a fully packaged set of golf clubs. Perfect for getting your confidence on the course up and ready, they are complete with all the tools you’ll need to get the job done.

Package sets normally come with a driver, a couple of fairway woods (3 and/or 5), a hybrid (sometimes two), irons on average at least a 5-SW, a putter and a golf bag. At GolfOnline our extensive inventory means we have an excellent mix of products for men, women and even juniors. Whether you are a right-handed or left-handed player, we have golf sets to match your specific needs. We even carry golf sets pre-made with longer shafts for taller golfers.

Package sets are generally very forgiving and designed for higher handicappers and beginners - giving you the best opportunity to perfect your centre strike.

What to expect from your package set

What to expect from your package set
Most packages contain the following clubs, or a similar alternative:
  • 1 x Driver
  • 1 x Fairway Wood
  • 9 x Irons (3-9 irons, pitching wedge and sand wedge)
  • 1 x Putter
Some sets do not offer a driver and instead give an extra fairway wood. This is because beginner golfers typically struggle when using a driver and benefit more from the shorter fairway wood.  To discuss variants in each club set, you can contact us.

Many sets also offer hybrids in place of the longer irons (3 iron to 5 iron) which makes it much easier to hit the ball straight and far.

Additionally, 5 to 7 irons have larger heads and more perimeter (outer) weighting, and look like a mix between a hybrid club and an iron. The long club designs are technically hybrids, which are very forgiving. The short clubs (8 iron to Sand Wedge) are usually quite similar to normal irons. These sets work under the principle that as the club gets longer, it gets harder to hit the ball, so they are made more forgiving.
