You could probably get a higher quality set of used clubs on hsolist for that or a little more. Make sure they are cavity back irons as they are much easier to get in the air and are more forgiving on mi[PoorWordUsage]s. I'd probably stick with steel shafts. I know everyone likes new stuff but when you can get used, high quality name brand clubs for anything less than $200 I think you should go for it. hsolist! It's a beautiful thing. Also check around at garage sales and auctions you will be surprised at what you will find.

like any other sport, you get what you pay for. These $100.00 sets are made of cheap iron, poor quality shafts and are inconsistent. I golfed with a guy who had some Fleet Farm irons with graphite shafts and he would hit his 6 iron 155 yrds and his 7 iron about 170 yrds and after about a year his shafts started to break. If you're just beginning, buy some used brand name cavity back irons and a 3 wood. You can tee off with a 3 wood, use it on the fairway and it's easier to hit. Once you graduate and get on someones payroll, you can upgrade.

Good luck, it's a great game.

Edit: This is weird, for some reason I was thinking you mentioned you were still in college, which prompted the "graduate" comment. Oh well, I'm blaming it on having a senior moment. crazy

Yes they will be fine for you and it won't hurt the pocket book to bad.

Plus the return policy at WallWorld is 2nd to none if you change your mind!

I used a cheap set for a few years at first. I would recommend checking out a sportmart also though. For just a few bucks more you can get a lot more clubs. Since some of the cheap starter sets only come with odd # irons.

Yep, buy a cheap set, beat the crud out of them, and then in a few years if you're still into golf get a better set.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
