My wife has decided to take up golfing this year and has already had her first dozen lessons or so.

She is wanting to buy a "starter" set of women's golf clubs and we're looking to spend no more than about $200-250.

Neither of us know anything at all about golf equipment, but I'm certain there are plenty of people here who do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Are these a good deal?

I don't know. There looks to be quite a bit of wear and tear on those clubs. The poster claims they are a $750 value which I don't agree with at all. For $200 you can get a new set of irons (don't know how good adam's womens irons are) http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3958081&cp=2367438.4074790.4074794 .

Granted they don't have any woods or putters but you can pick those up rather cheap on ebay or at a golf store that sells used clubs.

If you are willing to higher price wise you may be able to get yourself a pretty nice starter set at a Dicks Sporting Goods or Golf Galaxy.

I've looked at the sets on Dicks and the budget isn't so strict that it couldn't move up into the $300-350 range if it meant a significantly better set of clubs.

The main problem is, I simply know nothing about them. I see a $200 set and a $600 set and they look the same to me.

Out of all the sets on Dick's website, I've only heard of Wilson, and they're fairly cheap compared to some of the others.

Are the price differences more a product of function or style?

I think it's more style. For beginning golfers, there isn't a whole lot of difference in the type of clubs they would use. A set of Lady Cobras isn't going to make her a scratch golfer any more than a set of Wilsons will no matter how good they are. She should try them out first and the set that she feels like she can hit the ball the best with is the one you should get. If she has a good swing, she'll hit the ball just fine if she has a decent set of clubs.
