    Right now I have a set of generic, cheap clubs, but as I become more experienced and better at the sport, I'd like to upgrade. Which golf clubs provide maximum performance and value in your opinion?

    I don't know where you live, but stay with municipal courses. They seem not to be as challenging.

    I suggest, if you can afford it, to take a few lessons. Golf is very frustrating, even for those who can play it well.

    depends on your budget. you can pick up some callaway x-16's or 18s irons for a reasonable amount. even though you are a beginner DO NOT buy graphite shaft irons, the sales guy will tell you they will "fit your game" the best, this is BS, graphite irons are for slow swingers/seniors, make sure you get steel shaft irons.

    Drivers and Woods are trial and error, most courses will let you play a driver for a round to try it out or your local golf shop will have a swing analyzer/simulator to try them. Most will allow you to take to a range (deposit required) to try it out, they will tape the face, this wont greatly change the performance.

    enjoy learning this game, its amazing how addictive it can be and frustrating!

    a good golf shop should let you borrow the club to make sure it fit you before buying it, or try the shop at the courses at least you can have a swing with it but don't go out spending heaps of money until you no you still wont to play their is nothing wrong with a standard set of clubs mine are now 4 years old and when i have tried new and more expensive clubs i don't play as well so i now like mine better any way go have some fun, unless your as good as tiger woods then don't worry about the "looks"
