Buying golf equipment can be like throwing your money onto the fire, but armed with some fore-knowledge you can save yourself some time and money when you're selecting golf clubs for yourself. As with most things in life, you can either spend a lot of money in one go or you can spend a little several times, until you get what you really need.

If you are just starting out and are not completely certain that you want to commit yourself to the addictive game of golf, you should either hire golf clubs at the clubhouse on the golf course, or buy a starter set of golf clubs.

Purchasing a set of starter golf clubs enables you to get used to them; allowing you to concentrate on your game instead of pondering how this odd set of golf clubs you just hired is going to pan out.

After you become better acquainted with the game of golf, you should consider investing in a better set of golf clubs which are more suited to you.

In general, a set of clubs includes a driver, one or two fairway woods, numbers 4-9 irons, a wedge or two and a putter.

As you become more experienced and start thinking about new clubs, you may want to consider buying your driver separately. Some players want a driver to give them more accuracy, others need more distance.

There are numerous types of golf ball on the market and the golf ball box will often have a chart on the back to direct you to the right ball for your needs. As you learn more about the game and get better at it, you should experiment with different balls which could improve your accuracy and/or your distance.

Having the right golfing equipment is an important aspect of the game, so buy wisely!
