A good deal. Go for it!
on May 12, 2011
After playing for many years, I had to give up golf about 5 years ago due to a medical problem. I sold my clubs. I got cleared to play again this spring and I needed something to get started with. Initially, I looked for used clubs at stores and on Craigslist (Phoenix, AZ). Both were disappointing. Store items were very high priced and all had substantial wear. CL led me to chase all over town for items of exaggerated condition. Then I stumbled across this set of Palm Springs clubs, bag and putter included, for an incredible internet price of $199. Delivery took two days. I really can't believe the quality, especially after using them for two driving range visits and two 9 hole play dates. All clubs have graphite shafts and I would judge them to be on the stiffer side of medium. The shafts have a nice metallic gold appearance, unlike most graphite clubs which are charcoal black. Club heads are standard chromed steel with grooved and sandblasted facings. Irons have a standard hollow back head design. Grips are the standard composite. The set I got included an oversized driver, standard sized 3-wood, 3 and 4 fairway woods, 5-9 irons, wedge, and putter. The nylon bag is actually better than the one I used for a number of years before quitting. My only comment about the bag is that with such lightweight clubs, the bag is top heavy and needs a counter weight at the bottom to keep it steady. If you're looking for a pro-quality set, you need to keep looking, but this set would be a good choice for seniors, any beginner, as well as club players who typically shoot 80 or higher. Palms Springs clubs used to be made in Palms Springs, believe it or not, but now come from China (of course). These will be much like the old PS clubs, if you ever had any. This was a great find.
