I went to a Taylormade demo a few weeks back. evidently technology has not advanced to the point where it can fix my game.

I would consider getting a good used clubs.

2013 model vs 2008 model, average golfer would not know the difference.

Only difference people would know is, if the club plays well, then it is quality club, if it doesn't, it is crap. Regardless of the price.

Best time to buy clubs is fall/winter, when no one is playing, or some just want to get rid of their extra sets.

This is a great set for a LH golfer. I've been looking online and several "off brand" sets for $40 less. Great deal. n41

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.
I am 26 and been playing since I was 12 - played for my high school etc. Taught my friends to play when they graduated college.

Agreed w/ above about it not mattering as a beginner. Do not spend more than $200 on a complete set. Get a full set w/ hybrids instead of long irons (long irons are much, much harder to hit and you will never use them), putter, bag etc. The sand wedge is really nice to have as well.

Go with the $175 set, or find something for less on Amazon/Ebay. You can find complete sets with hybrids for under $150.

I always have to disagree with people that say this. It makes zero sense to me.

A beginner is far, far better off with a complete set of all the same brand/style. They can get everything brand new for ~$150 - a set w/ hybrids, mid/low irons, a sand wedge, a putter, couple woods, and a bag. The more wedges the better. I have a 48* PW, 52* GW and 58* SW. Used to have the more conventional 56* and 60* instead of the 58* but I seem to be more consistent with the 58* in place of those.

If you can't break 100, you will hit your 3 wood farther and straighter than your driver the vast majority of the time. If you can't break 100, do yourself a favor and leave your driver at home some time. You will be surprised with how many more fairways you hit (and likely farther).

So many of my beginner friends feel like they HAVE to hit driver all the time. One guy can hit his driver well but the rest of them hit their 5 irons farther than their drivers the majority of the time.

Feel free to PM me with any questions. I love golf and have been guiding/teaching my buddies to play over the last few years. Now that everyone graduated college and works 9-5/is married/have live-in gfs, they want to learn to golf.

I stand corrected. Thanks for the info.
you're not really incorrect - strata is callaway's cheap line of equipment. to call these clubs 'callaways' is like calling old navy clothes gap clothes.

callaway owns odyssey, top-flite, strata and ben hogan. there will be no 'callaway' branding on these clubs - i'm sure that matters to at least some of the people interested in buying.

Solid set for beginners although there is a large loft gap between the pitching and sand wedge (10 degrees).

Callaway Diablo Edge and Taylormade Burner Plus irons have had great prices lately. Beginners would be happy with few irons, a hybrid or two, and a driver. Add a fairway wood later.
Rockbottomgolf.com is great, so is 3balls.com for used/demo clubs. 3balls is the web based version of Joe & Leighs golf store at the Pine Oaks golf course in Easton MA. I shop and play there from time to time so they are legit.
Going to a store and trying some clubs is a good idea. Even a beginner can feel a difference between clubs. In the NW Puetz Golf is great. Golfsmith and Golf Galaxy are many other places and are great places to check out clubs too.

I haven't hit the Strata clubs so don't have an opinion on them. I'd want to hit them and compare with others. There is a great chance this set will feel great.

I'm thinking about getting this for my father for Father's Day. He plays about once a week, he's not a pro by any means. I know the clubs he has are pretty old now... And probably rather cheap. Would these be an upgrade?

Going to have to disagree with you there. I find the driver much easier to hit and have not at all figured out what to do with a wood. Nice, big head with a bigger sweet spot, higher ball placement, and a long, wobbly shaft that quickly tells me if I'm swinging correctly or not (sadly, often no).

Granted, I am a total nubcake, but that's the target audience here.

And distance is far off from what you say too. I can hit a 5-iron ~170 ish on a good shot, but usually don't use it because I'm inconsistent. My driver is consistently 200+, up to 250, with the problem being that inconsistency means I've shot it 200+ yards into the wrong fairway.

I think you have to distinguish between players - I'm young, reasonably fit, and have lots of power that I have no idea how to control. So I'm going to hit the driver far no matter what -just in the wrong direction, and sometimes straight up into the sky. This might be less true of someone in their 30s, 40s, or 50s.

TL;DR don't hate on drivers for all people

Might be an upgrade from your description but he'd probably be happier getting a decent set of lightly used irons (Cleveland TA6s for ~$150) and an R11 driver
