Clubs are obviously crucial if you want to go golfing, and you need a set of them, not just one. That’s because you need different clubs for different situations – such as when you’re initially teeing off with a driver, or digging the ball out of a particularly awkward spot.
Fortunately, all that you need to do at first is buy yourself a set of clubs specifically labelled as ‘beginner-friendly’. This set will likely include woods, irons, hybrids and a putter. A putter, meanwhile, is a flat-faced club. While you might have to make many strikes with your various clubs before you land the ball in the hole, the putter would be the last one you use to nudge it in there.
For beginner golfers, we recommend starting with what is known as a ‘half set’. These sets contain seven clubs that will help you to learn the basics, while also allowing you to improve and play golf on the course when you’re ready.
