Cost of golf, and how to keep it down!

With all the shiny new golf equipment coming out each year and the prices slowly going up how do I keep the costs down while buying quality golf gear?? What I notice as a PGA professional is golfers coming in for lessons with these cheap sets straight out of a sporting store. What happens with these clubs is that they are to heavy for the golfer and shaft flex and lengths that don’t match the golfers swing. 1st tip is to speak to your PGA Professional to get a ball park idea of what you should use i.e. Length, shaft flex and shaft weight as a minimum. This is beneficial so you can look for a quality 2nd hand set. Enquire with us at Emajin golf and we can arrange a 15min zoom call to help you out. Another alternate if you want to purchase that one set that will be you’re set for the next 5-10 years I recommend to build it one club at a time until you’re ready. My suggestion is to start with
  • Brand new 7iron fitted to you.
When we have caught the golfing bug and want to add more clubs, next I would get:
  • Driver
  • #5 Fairway wood
  • 5 Hybrid
  • 9 iron
  • Sand wedge (56 degree wedge)
  • Putter
Lastly speak to your coach or Club PGA Professional the remaining options i.e:
  • Additional Fairway wood options
  • Additional Hybrid options
  • Irons to fill the gaps i.e. 4 iron to Pitching Wedge
  • Lob wedge (60 degrees wedge)
The advantages of having fewer clubs is when selecting the shot on the course you have fewer options which actually assists with decision making.

So many golf ball options. What is the best one for me?

How important is a good golf ball? Short answer, yes. However we don’t want to be hitting our precious golf balls into the water and feel like we are throwing out money away.

Golf balls for beginners handicap 30+

As a beginner we all have been there when we just look at water or out of bounds and our ball gravitates towards it every time and another ball lost. What should we look for? The best feedback of golf balls for this level is the Callaway Supersoft this gives the player great feel off the club with longer distances whilst still being able add spin to the ball on shorter shots around the green. Approx. cost $31-$35 per dozen.

Golf Balls for intermediate15-30 handicaps

If you’re a regular golfer and looking for a cost effective way to play without giving up control the Titleist Tour Soft is my best recommendation. The biggest difference compared to the ones recommended for beginners is gaining a lot more control and spin around the greens whilst still keeping the budget down compared to the premium golf balls. Approx. $50 per dozen

Golf balls for advanced golfers handicap <15

My number 1 recommendation is the Pro V1 it is the most played golf ball on the professional tours. The golf ball offers the best feel off the club face, penetrating trajectory and exceptional control around the greens. Approx. Price $75 per dozen.

Ultimately try out a few different golf balls for yourself and recognise what you like in terms of feel, sound and looks. Additionally you can get golf balls in a wide variety of colours these days and customize them to suit your personality.

Australian Golf Digest Article June 2022

Big news: Emajin Golf is once again featured in the Australian Golf Digest June 2022 issue, which is out now!

This time, our Founder, Raj Narayan, was asked by Brad Clifton, Editor-in-Chief of the magazine, whether corporate golf was making a comeback. Her answer was definitely YES!

However, she says, the focus has shifted from large one-off, single-company corporate days to regular golf networking events. It’s becoming clear that golf as a business activity is most effective when people meet to network with some consistency. That’s how long-term, strong relationships are built.

We have had an incredible response from our members and their business partners to our golf networking events. Businesspeople from different industries are coming together to connect and build solid working relationships over golf. It’s no longer just for the elite.

Emajin is all about connectivity and inclusivity, which is why our events have a range of ways to get involved, from the full 18-holes to a ‘try golf’ clinic.

The Australian Golf Digest dubbed us the New Age of Golf, and you can read more about this fresh approach to uniting business and the great game in the magazine.
