I just did some looking. The gold set includes a 5-wood and a sand wedge, head covers for the hybrids. Plus, the clubs are a little different (size and weight-wise)

Either would be fine until you can break 85. Its 90% the person and 10% the tech. Id personally go for the set with the SW and 5W because I hit each 5-6x per round. Theyre pretty crucial clubs to have. SW especially for a beginner where touch around the greens is tough, having the extra loft will be important.

Doesn't matter as a beginner. Just go with what you care to pay. A beginner will hit a $300 setup the same as a $1000 setup.

Btw my coworker has this set. Ive hit the driver, and hybrids. As an intermediate player I wouldn't mind playing this but I like to piece my bags together (for the fun of buying things). I also would like a heavier putter.

EDIT: Just saw the other (red) set is missing clubs. Remember, when buying clubs individually online, they can be $30-70+. The sand wedge is crucial.

just a heads up for those of you looking for slickdeals on golf clubs: even most experienced golfers would be surprised at how knockoff clubs have become so prevalent in the past couple of years. the counterfeiters do a scary good job, so buying from authorized retailers and avoiding deals "too good to be true" might be a good idea.

I just got these exact clubs. Played one round so far, really nice set. Definitely worth the price. Comes with the club headcovers too.

Mostly true. But as a youngish beginner who still hasn't broken 100, never mind 85, I had a few frustrations with my starting set that are worth pointing out.

For one, my 4-hybrid and 3-wood were and remain wastes of time. I'm getting increasingly competent with my driver and basic irons, and honestly would rather focus on those than have the distraction of a hybrid or wood. Who cares if I have to hit an extra shot on longer holes? Barely registers in my stratospheric scores.

Also, I ended up buying another wedge. I hit 120+ on a full swing with my PW and pitch it 70-80. From 30-70yds I had nowhere near the finesse to control it adequately in a pitch, and so I was overshooting greens every few holes, often by 20-40yds. Extremely frustrating.

And yes there's a sand wedge but they are absolutely godawful for hitting off of hard-packed lies because of their high bounce, and there are lots of hard-packed lies on cheaper courses.

I now own a more lofted, somewhat bladelike 58º wedge, and love the thing. No more games of overshooting every other green and topping balls 50yds over the other ones with a sand wedge.

And I don't carry any non-driver club longer than 5-iron.

I mean what youre saying can apply to anyone anywhere. I played yesterday and didnt hit anything between driver and 7 iron even once the entire round. I will echo you though in the importance of getting good 52 & 60 degree wedges if your set goes 46* PW to 56* SW.

I hit my 60 degree wedge more than any club in my bag thats not my putter.

Shots from <30 yards will determine whether you shoot 85 or 105. A bad chip/pitch is almost 100% an extra shot tacked directly onto your score. Any putt you dont get within 5 or 6 feet is about half of a wasted shot.

I shot an 89 yesterday with 35 putts and 15 chips/pitches inside of 30 yds. Hitting tee and approach shots is the easy part of golf.

warning about this seller - my wife ordered a set from him and 2 weeks later he said 'they will ship from the manufacturer and it will be a few more days' he did offer a refund or another set by Powerbilt for the same price....kind of deceptive selling.
