I assume after your boy picks up the rudimentary of golf, you'll be bringing him to play at some club?
Yes agree. Unless parents are golf enthusiatics themselves...otherwise IMO can explore other sports...just my thoughts...

Can anyone help?

Thanks :)

For junior sets, you can try Golf House (brand new).

Depending on the age of your girl, you might also want to consider ladies' sets, and also ask the coach for recommendations.

Finally, check out Golf Zone at Far East Shopping Center (NOT Far East Plaza). They have second-hand clubs, which I would recommend because beginners usually need to change clubs after 6-12 months.

Happy golfing!

Wow, custom clubs. Your daughter must have been playing for quite a while? Great to have clubs that are fitted, they're perfect for serious golfers.

For you and hub, try to find friends who can lend you clubs to try, so that you can get an idea of what you like.

Cheers!

My girl has been playing for only 2 months but she is enjoying it and I was thinking of getting her a set. Tried to get new clubs or 2nd hand ones for that matter but didn't know how to choose.

the good thing about getting her customised clubs, the coach said that her clubs can be "extended" so she doesn't need to change them when she is older.. so can use for quite a number of years. :)

we picked up her clubs yesterday and she used them for her lessons. She was so happy. haha..

getting her own clubs also mean that now we can just go to the driving range for our own practice.
