Best Golf Club Sets

As golfers we all have different preferences and therefore we don't all go about buying clubs the same way. For instance, some avid golfers prefer to buy clubs individually and must have the best golf irons, best golf wedges and every other type of club you can think of. Others just prefer the simplicity of buying an entire set, or package set, either way you want to get the best golf clubs for you and your own requirements, whatever they may be.

Those who are new to the game often just want to buy a set from the shelf without going through the custom fitting process. This is why package sets are typically aimed at beginners and mid to high handicappers and are a fantastic present for any loved one or friend looking to get into the game! Kids are a common focus when it comes to package sets and you'll find some fantastic options in our best golf club sets for kids guide. If you want a package set of clubs to tick lots of boxes at once, here are some of the best golf club sets that you may wish to consider.

Some may prefer a more specialist-looking wedge

This set is at the premium end of the package set market but you get a lotr for your money. A 10.5˚ driver, 3-wood, 4-hybrid, then 5-iron to pitching wedge followed by a gap wedge, 55˚ sand wedge and a putter. From a gapping perspective this set up makes perfect sense and is more than enough to get you out onto the course. 

All the woods feature matte black crowns that isn’t too dissimilar to the Callaway Rogue ST woods. The driver sits a little closed at address which will suit a broad spectrum of golfers, In addition, they are easy to get airborne, which will offer much needed help to those with slower swing speeds.

The shape of the irons is unmistakably Callaway - there is a fairly rounded toe area and the topline is thick enough to inspire confidence without being too bulky and uninviting. In testing we found them to be incredibly consistent. 

The last point to mention is the Odyssey putter, with the brand known for producing some of the best putters on the market. Again, there is plenty of generosity in the head shape and even an alignment aid which will help when setting up to the golf ball.

The well thought out gapping and performance of these clubs earn it a place in our 2023 Editor's Choice awards.

Flimsy cart bag

This is a premium TaylorMade package set and the quality of the equipment matches the price tag. The 12-piece set includes six irons, two hybrids, two fairway woods, a driver and a putter, all in a trolley bag. This does not look like a beginner's set as the clubs all have clean, premium aesthetics and wouldn't look out of place in the bag of a mid-handicapper. 

The irons feature toplines that are thick enough to inspire confidence at address without being too clunky and uninviting. The grey finish on the crown of the metalwoods combines with a small flash of green which we thought looked superb. At the other end of the bag, the sand wedge and putter are slightly more compact, with a refined, premium look.

In testing we were impressed by the performance as all clubs were easy to launch and forgiving. The ball flight was on the high side for us, but given that this set is aimed at golfers who may sometimes to struggle to get the ball up in the air, the regular shaft version we tested should do the job.

We did think the bag was a little bit flimsy, and it does require you to invest in a cart, but other than that this is a package set built to last.

Putter leaves a lot to be desired

This is a terrific value set of clubs which is available in 11 piece or a 9 piece option. The 11-piece consists of driver, fairway wood, two hybrids, irons 6-PW, putter and a stand bag which is very impressive. It's lightweight, comes with plenty of pockets and has excellent club storage in the top. It's not waterproof, but you wouldn't expect that in a package set at this price.

In testing we found all clubs to be forgiving and easy to hit, and whilst they might not have the same premium look as Callaway's top end products, there's no debating the performance on offer. 

The driver is equally forgiving and it is very appealing to look down on because you can see a lot of the face at address. The irons are excellent. The topline is nice and thick to inspire confidence at address while the generous amount of offset should suit those who tend to slice their irons, and the quality of the grips and shafts are akin to a premium set of cavity back irons.

Because there are only 10 clubs in the set there's room for you to add to it, specifically in the wedges department, which is where game improvers may want to consider a Callaway Mack Daddy CB wedge or two. The putter is not the best though so we would recommend that anyone who gets this package set look at the best cheap putters under £100 and invest a bit of extra cash here.

Some may want a more forgiving putter

The Wilson Prostaff SGI package set is superb value for money, providing the user with 10 clubs in total - Driver, fairway wood, hybrid, 6-9-iron, two wedges, a putter and a bag. For the price-point, it's clear to see why this is considered one of the best package sets on the market.

We think this set is ideal for anyone new to golf, as it provides plenty of help getting the ball in the air and also plenty of forgiveness for when you don’t find the centre of the clubface. 

The sweetspots on the clubs in this SGI set are large and forgiving, and the heads themselves inspire confidence. We found the irons in particular achieved this and along with the putter they were the stand-out positives in this package set. We also felt that the wide sole of the sand wedge makes escaping bunkers far easier, which is an area of the game beginners can really struggle with.

This is a 10 piece set which is ideal to start with as it allows you to add extra clubs as your game improves and you understand more about your needs as a golfer. You might want to add another fairway or hybrid, as well as a couple of specialist wedges.

Acoustically won't suit everyone

A price tag north of $1,600 means these fall firmly into the premium end of the market but we would certainly class the 0211 Z as one of the best club sets for beginners on the market.

The 10 piece set includes six hybrid irons (6-9 plus a pitching wedge and sand wedge), three woods (a 16° driver, 4 and 5 wood) and a 0211 Hellcat
