A package set of clubs are a great way to introduce novices to the game of golf but, with so many on the market, which ones are the best? We take a look here.
The Best Package Set Offers
When introducing someone to the game of golf, a package set is your best, and cheapest, option. This is because you are provided with all the basics: a set of golf clubs and a bag.
With more and more people taking up the sport, brands are releasing some excellent starter sets. There has never been a better time to purchase a package set of clubs.
But which ones are the best? We take a look here.
The Best Package Set Offers
The RX2 Package Set features a driver, fairway woods, 6 iron - sand wedge, putter and stand bag. This is a perfect set for anyone just starting the game as the clubs provide great forgiveness for those off centre strikes. Includes a one year warranty.
Cobra XL Speed Men's Golf Package Set - Graphite
The Cobra set features the same array of clubs as the Rife. However, features a cart bag as opposed to a stand bag. Cobra is one of the most recognised brands in golf and a big recommendation.
Ben Sayers M8 Package Set
The Ben Sayers offers lots of versatility with the package set available in either graphite or steel shafts and a cart or stand bag. The set has been designed with forgiveness in mind as you receive a driver and three fairway woods.
Callaway Golf Warbird 14 Piece Package Set
Callaway is one of the most established brands in golf, with their Warbird set one of the most recognised in their collection. Not only do you get a full set up of Callaway clubs, but also an Odyssey putter, Callaway cart bag and headcovers to protect your clubs.
MacGregor DCT2000 Golf Club Package Set with Golf Bag
The MacGregor set features extremely forgiving and oversized clubs that are ideal for beginners. Featuring a full set up, the MacGregor can either be purchased as a stand bag or a cart bag.
When purchasing a package set you should take a few factors into consideration: cost, quality and looks should play a key part in your decision process.
On that basis, we recommend the Rife RX2 Package Set (opens in new tab) and the Cobra XL Speed Men's Golf Package Set (opens in new tab). Both offer tremendous value for money, with both being recognised golf brands.
Another suggestion would be the Ben Sayers M8 Package Set: offering great versatility and forgiveness, it would make a great starter set for beginners to the game.

Matt joined Golf Monthly in February 2021 covering weekend news, before also transitioning to equipment and testing. After freelancing for Golf Monthly and The PGA for 18 months, he was offered a full-time position at the company in October 2022 and continues to cover weekend news and social media, as well as help look after Golf Monthly’s many buyers’ guides and equipment reviews.
Taking up the game when he was just seven years of age, Matt made it into his county squad just a year later and continues to play the game at a high standard, with a handicap of around 2-4. To date, his best round came in 2016, where he shot a six-under-par 66 having been seven-under through nine holes. He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
