Welcome to the forum.

What is your budget?

And

When you say 'new to golf', how many times have you played and what score do you get for 9 holes on a par 36 type course?

Have you had any lessons to learn how to play?

Why these questions? Because you may get better value (better clubs for same money) buying other brands second hand. To help guide you, this information is helpful.

A basic cheapo set will be much like any other - all 3 of those are long established brands although the Macgregors aren't common

If you can have a hit with each see which you like most - a good feeling about your club's is a good start

I'm going to disagree with Weetabix, and suggest instead of buying any of those 'package sets' you instead go and talk to your local golf pro.

In hindsight, I wish I had taken lessons when I first started. Years of hacking around with false ideas of how to hit a golf ball only developed a bad swing, bad technique, that's taken years to unlearn.

Once you speak to your local golf pro, they will be able to get you into a used set of better quality clubs that will be much better than those 'package sets'. For your budget, you can get a second hand set of quality clubs... Sure,they won't be new and shiny, but they'll be better quality and with the help of a good golf coach, you'll get a set that suits you better.

What area are you living? Where do you play? Crew on here can probably recommend a good golf coach in your area.

I agree with Hack.

 

There are lots of variables about you that we don't know - age, fitness, general build.  Are you a muscly tradie or a wimpy clerk?

 

It's not just about the shininess of the club heads.  Shafts come in different flexes.  If you're a strong young buck, you'll need fairly stiff shafts even though you may not be able to use them properly yet.  If you're a fat old fart or have other physical limitations, you might need 'senior flex' shafts.

 

Whatever you buy probably won't suit you for long because, as your swing gets better, your requirements change.

 

Go and see the local golf pro - he can size you up much better than our guesses even though you may currently lack ability. As Hack said, get some lessons so that you are at least starting with the right methodology, or technique, rather than having to unlearn your natural faults somewhere down the track.

 

Join a club.  It's not about being 'good enough to compete', it's about having others to play golf with.  We were all crap golfers when we started, some of us still are.
