Choosing your irons is one of the biggest decisions you will ever face in golf. Some players are casual about the whole thing, but there are some players who are very serious indeed about it and will spend weeks, even months, hunting down the perfect set of irons in the hope that they will chip away at their handicap.

Good golf clubs for beginners can be found all over the place – there is no shortage of choice in that area. It all just depends on how much you would like to spend on a set of clubs. Of course, how much you are willing to spend depends on how seriously you are going to take the game.

Your best bet as a complete beginner is to get an affordable set that is already put together. Once you get the hang of it and start to notice variations in the potential of different clubs, you will be able to seriously look at upgrading your clubs.

If you’ve been playing for a while and have already got to that point, then you’ve probably already been eyeing up some new irons. Everybody has different preferences when it comes to golf clubs, so it is worth trying out quite a few before you commit to buy.

When you’re looking for golf clubs for high handicappers, Callaway’s Big Bertha irons are a brilliant choice at this stage. They are well rounded, sturdy and easy hitting golf irons, so you start knocking shots off your rounds in no time. The Big Berthas are probably about right for a player looking to improve on a score of about 90 or 85.

Once you start hitting 80s and 70s, you will be really beginning to take the game seriously, which is when you’ll really begin to save for some serious clubs. There is a variety of great golf irons out there and when it comes to spending hundreds of pounds on a set, it matters more than ever to pick exactly the right ones for you. Many stores have facilities in which you can try before you buy, so there is absolutely no need to rush into it. Take your time and get to grips with a range of clubs. You’ll recognise the ones for you as soon as you swing them.

Anything from Nike to Ping, Callaway to Titleist, can improve your game at this level. If you play an attacking game, you might want to go for a set of Yonex irons, but if you play with more conservative control, a set of Ping Ansers might suit you better. These are expertly crafted progressive irons with a hollow sole cavity, giving you ultimate control of your game.

There is a perfect set of clubs for every kind of player out there, so it’s not as easy as identifying ‘the best’ clubs – everybody is different. It’s just a matter of shopping around and hunting out the ones for you.
