i started up again with some old wilson 1200 GE off ebay and went for lessons.
definitely recommend lessons but it is hard at first as they normally change everything around.
will probably go to the ping fitting centre next year tho and splash the cash.

Yeah, just general advice on what clubs to buy.
I just went to sports direct on my lunch, they had a graphite dunlop set for about £100, which had shite loads of clubs, a bag, and a few other things, but it was all in a big cardboard box, so its probably proper shite, it was reduced from about 360 or something, but cant seem to find it online…
Im guessing i dont really need 18 different types of irons for starting off at a pitch and put.
9, 7, 5 irons?
Want to spend as little as possibe, as knowing me, i will no doubt stop playing after 3 weeks or so!

I bought a good ladies' starter set of clubs from the club's shop at Trent Park for £150 approx including a trolley and I'm quite happy with it for now. The brand is St Mellons.

Strange time of the year to start playing, but i'd back up the lessons shout. I started playing again this summer and got myself down to 18, which i was quite pleased with. I'd suggest getting a:
I wouldn't start with a driver because they can be hard to hit for beginners and get yourself down the driving range on a regular routine if you can, especially if you're supplementing it with lessons.

So you basically just ignored everyone's advice then?

just go driving range every week, youll soon get better

a real course is nothing like a driving range… the only way to improve play is to practice. I bet you give up cos you will be shit on a real course
