  Typical costs:
  • Average sets for casual players range from $200 to $400, depending on the quality of the metal used in the clubs. Stainless steel and partially graphite clubs are generally less expensive than titanium.
  • Higher-end sets cost as much as $800, while professional clubs can cost more than $1,000 for just irons, which make up only one component of a complete set.
  • Sports Authority sells complete sets for men[1] including mid-range brands like Wilson and Adams. The Wilson Tour RX Package for $200 offers three graphite-shafted woods, stainless steel hybrid and three irons, and a putter.
  • For double the price, golfers could indulge in the Men's Adams Tight Lies[2] , which offers a full titanium driver, specialized low fairway woods and oversized heads for the irons for $400.
  • Women's sets[3] at Sports Authority average around $300 for HiPPO Women's Magia and other models that include a greater focus on woods instead of irons.
  • Higher-end women's sets with higher-quality metals by Adams and TaylorMade are available at Golfballs.com for $600 to $800. The Adams a20s set [4] offers a titanium driver, two low fairway woods, two hybrid woods, as well as several irons and a putter for $800.

What should be included:
  • Sets include a bag with a stand and one or more of each kind of club: irons, drivers, fairway woods and putters.
  • The type and number of clubs offered will depend on a golfer's ability. To see the sets recommended for your playing level, check out Sports Authority's buying guide[5] .
  • A two-year warranty that covers defects in the metal base of the clubs is often included with most sets. Manufacturers will not cover normal wear and tear, like paint scratches.
Additional costs:
  • No set would be complete without golf balls[6] , which retail at Golfballs.com for $8 to $16 for a moderate sets of 12. Higher-quality balls, like Callaway's HX Tour line[7] , which offers lower-spin and higher-speed construction, cost for $34 a set of 12.
  • For golfers who don't want to just toss their clubs in the closet, Dick's Sporting Goods sells a hanging organizer[8] for $70. Replacement grips for clubs run $100 for a set of 13[9] .
Discounts:
  • Amazo sells reduced sets by Golf Outlets of America for as low as $105. These sets include just as many clubs as others and often in higher-quality metals, including the Visa Lady set with three woods, eight irons and a putter, many of which are titanium.
  • For high-end used sets at a discount of up to 50 percent, check out Callaway's certified pre-owned collection[10] of irons, woods and other club varieties.
Shopping for golf clubs:
  • Golf Magazine offers reviews[11] of the latest drivers, irons, fairway woods, wedges and putters. Golf Gear Review also offers recommendations by model.
  • Sports Authority has stores[12] in nearly every state. Search for a Dick's Sports Goods store[13] , which are only in the East, South and Midwest.
