How to choose golf clubs for girls – my experience

My daughter surprised me yesterday, when she asked me all these questions about golf and how it’s played, and expressed interest to play it herself. I’ve never tried to convince my children to play golf with me, but it’s quite flattering and i can’t wait until we get started. But i had to choose golf clubs for my daughter, and i had no idea how to do it. First thing i did, was reading as much information as possible on communities like Reddit, and i got pretty good understanding of golf clubs for kids, where to buy them and how much should i expect to pay. In fact, my little research made me kind of an expert on this field, and i wanted to write about choosing the best golf clubs for your children. I want to do it, because there’s effectively no information on golf blogs about it, and i think process of buying golf clubs for children is sometimes overlooked, and it shouldn’t be.

 Before spending lots of money on any kids’ golf club set though, check your local golf course for the rentals. In my experience, and according to what i’ve read, renting the golf club set is the best option for a beginner. Its benefits include not having to worry about buying low quality or counterfeit products, which is something a lot of beginner golfers often do. Plus, it’s unwise to spend hundreds of dollars on a product to play golf when you’ve never played the sport before – you might hate it, and that will mean that money spent on golf clubs will be a waste.

Plus, kids grow very fast, and if your daughter or son is in transition period, it is better to wait and avoid having to replace golf club set twice in a year. The length of proper golf club for your child depends on kid’s height, so these things are connected.

So first things first, i’d recommend getting your daughter on a golf course, and renting some basic club or even better, buying used club set for her to play. If she enjoys the challenges and difficulties of golf, you can go ahead and buy her proper equipment for next game.

Good place to look for used children’s golf clubs is eBay. It has the widest selection and very good prices, especially on used ones. If you’re familiar with auctions on that site, you can apply your experience and get very good deal on golf clubs for your kids.

To sum it up, though, even best golf clubs for kids cost no more than couple of hundred dollars, and they don’t need 13 piece set to play, so you’ll come out much cheaper than buying a set for adults. I don’t recommend spending more than 100$ on kids golf club set though, because the benefits of expensive golf clubs don’t really add that much value. That is, if you’re concerned about the price, but if you’re well off and can afford to get the best product available, there are definitely few Callaway sets that you should check out.

Annoying people on golf course – how to deal with them?

I’ve been playing golf for few years now, and i’ve encountered some rude jerks on the golf course, and i wanted to share my experience of dealing with them.

I don’t know why, and i mean no offense, but Golf seems to attract the jerks the most. It might be the passive nature of the game. You don’t have to do a lot of work other than perfecting your golf swing, and that might be attractive to those who have no discipline, but that’s just my theory. So many people boasting about how much they spend on their cool senior golf clubs, and how great of golfers they are. Those kinds of people are usually not very good at golf – and try to make up for it by wasting money on thousand dollar clubs and showing off. So if you’re trying to make friends – i’d suggest staying away from them.

The other type of people i hate are the smug competitive golfers. They might be extraordinary at the sport, but their pettiness makes it hard for anyone to like them. You can notice them from far away, making fun of players who can’t perform very well. And sometimes they even make fun of people they don’t know, which makes everyone but them very uncomfortable. And on top of that, they get very frustrated and jealous when someone gets better of them. These petty guys also have hard time taking responsibility for their actions. They’ll blame their poor performance and mistakes on everyone but themselves.To put it simply, i would not want to be near them for more than few minutes that i sometimes happen to be.

If one of these people hit you with the golf ball, it’s absolutely fine to be mad at them. Most likely it was just a mistake, but that doesn’t really help your pain.

One more negative thing i’ve noticed about golf is that majority of the players consist of old white men, who happen to be quite racist. If you’re a minority, they might not act on it to your face, but you can sense it, and it’s really uncomfortable. It might be different in more liberal states like California, but here in Minnesota, that’s just how it is.

But i always remember to not take it too seriously, because haters usually feed on your attention. If a person can’t simply enjoy spending time on the golf course and relax, there’s something very bad going on in their lives, and i feel really bad for them. But again, that doesn’t mean i’m going to let anyone take advantage of me or take my time. I simply try to get rid of hateful people from my life, and surround myself with people that i enjoy playing golf with.
