How to Choose the Right Junior Golf Set
There are two basic types of junior golf clubs to choose from: pre-packaged sets (clubs are built and boxed by the manufacturer) and custom built clubs (clubs we build using our own shafts and the highest quality clubheads and grips on the market). When we started this business back in 1999, we offered custom built clubs, but the price of the components escalated making it impractical to continue. As a result, we now focus on pre-packaged sets and offer only the best value (quality and price) to our customers.
Pre-packaged sets contain clubs pre-built to fit a specified age range or height range. The pre-packaged junior golf sets we have chosen to offer our customers are built with high quality components by reputable companies and offer outstanding value for the dollar. The best method for properly selecting a pre-built junior golf set is to use as a guide the recommended height or knuckle-to-floor range for the set that interests you. If your junior's measurements fall at the top of the range, select the next size up and have him or her grip down an inch or two during initial play. Then your child will have a chance to grow into the clubs and maximize your investment.
Make Sure to Shop by Height not Age
Club and Shaft Weight: Important at the Junior Level
A club properly weighted for a junior will allow the speed of the arms to match the rotation of the body, resulting in better club head-ball contact, more distance and improved accuracy. We have found that up to about nine years old a junior needs both a lighter club head and a lighter shaft. A lighter shaft combined with standard weight clubheads works great for most nine to twelve year olds, preparing them for graduation to adult clubs in their teen years.
