Good quality sports equipment can be expensive, and that’s especially true when it comes to playing golf. A full set of new golf clubs can cost anywhere from about $200 to $800, although it’s possible to pay several thousand dollars for premium clubs. The good news is that you don’t need to break the bank to take up golf; perfectly good clubs can be found in second hand stores, thrift shops and at yard sales for a fraction of the price. If you’re just starting out playing golf, you don’t need a full set of clubs anyway; a half set is sufficient for most beginners. Golf balls can be purchased second hand too, often from your local golf club or driving range. And all those other accessories, such as a fancy golf bag, golf gloves, yardage distance finder? You really don’t need them to enjoy the game.
