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.

I've used this golf set for a couple weeks now and have enjoyed my clubs so far. This was a choice to move to graphite for increased responsiveness and I can definitely feel the difference. Like using graphite, can feel when I hit the ball a little wonky. Having the hybrids were nice and appreciated the club covers for the drivers. (Pleasant surprise in the pockets when you open it).
The legs must have been damaged in shipment because they don't immediately open when they should, had to bend the leg a bit to make it work, but it's usable. I'd like to see more pockets in the bag. The main reason why I gave it 3 stars was because the original price was $500 and I didn't feel like the quality was equivalent to this price. Felt the value was closer to the actual sale price of the bag.

If you're just learning how to play this isn't a bad set to start out with. However I did notice that on the graphite clubs the club heads weren't as securely fastened as one would expect which really messes with the accuracy of your plays. I also had a problem while at the driving range where my pitching wedge broke where the shaft meats the club head. All in all I know you get what you pay for and this set most certainly is cheap in price and quality. I found that when going for a starter set it's better to get them used off of CL or ebay. Happy golfing everyone.

I golf for fun and play a handful times a year. Had people say they are nice clubs and couldn't believe the cost of these clubs.

For people who clubs break at a driving range it is because your not suppose to be using the mats.

The clubs arrived shrink-wrapped inside of the nice looking golf club bag. The bag itself has a tri-fold stand that makes golfing much more easy and convenient. Golf Club headers were also included in the bag. Overall very pleased with the purchase!

I wanted to start golfing recently and this set seemed to be a good starting point. I have only played a few times before buying the set, but I haven't had any issues. The driver seems a bit long for me, 5'7", but I haven't had anything sized. The bag is great with the stands and two shoulder straps. There is a strap to tie the stand legs together if you are using a cart and there is plenty of room for all of my gear with the various pockets. I look forward to putting this set to use for years to come.

It took me a couple of rounds to get used to the clubs. And when I did, I love them. I am an average senior golfer, and the clubs fit me perfectly. Shaved a couple of stroke off my score, because I now am able to tee off with the driver, which I have not done in some time. Great duffers club's.

I bought these a month or so ago and I play 1 9-hole round of golf a week. For the average golfer like me who shoots between 42-47 (for 9, of course) each week these clubs are very nice. The graphite shafts are very responsive and I like the club head weight that seems a little toward the heavy side. When you make contact, the ball comes off the club really nice. The thing I had to get used to is not swinging like you'd swing a wood with a low plane and a sweeping action. Because they're supposed to be more like irons with shorter shafts than similarly lofted woods you have to really concentrate on hitting down on the ball. The first few weeks I was hitting the ball really low. Pretty far, but low. When I swing properly they do have a nice flight path. A bit more of a draw than my regular irons. They come with really nice head covers, too.

GREAT CLUBS! I just forgot that these were graphite and not iron so the ball went further than expected. Great looking clubs too! I would recommend these to any of my friends. The other comments about it cracking at the bottom is false also, if your clubs are cracking at the bottom at where you drive the ball, you must be hitting the ground every time and obviously don't know how to golf!

First of all, I must mention I am a complete beginner in golf and after doing some research on the Internet I decided to buy this Club Set. The clubs are light, resistant, well finished and good quality. I have received very good comments from experienced golfers as well as from my golf course partners. The only thing to improve is the rain hood, which is made from a very thin material that does not resist the weight of the clubs when carrying them causing its deformation and breaking. I think this is something very easy to solve by using a thicker material. Anyhow it is still a very worthy purchase.

Antes que nada debo decir que soy principiante en los temas del golf y después de hacer algunas búsquedas en Internet me decidí por este juego de palos. Son livianos, resistentes, bien terminados y de buena calidad. He recibido muy buenos comentarios de parte de golfistas experimentados así como de mis colegas en el campo. Lo único para mejorar es la cubierta de protección contra la lluvia, la cual está elaborada en un material muy delgado que no resiste el peso de los palos cuando se cargan, causando la deformación y ruptura de la misma. Creo que esto es fácil de solucionar usando un material más grueso. De cualquier forma, esta es aún una compra que vale la pena.
