If you've barely golfed, I recommend just buying a used set on Kijiji to start. Golf clubs in no way make the golfer, so buy a set, you can probably get a whole set with drivers, bag, balls etc for less than this and then if you get into it, then look at buying a better set. Costco regularly has nice sets for a decent price too. The key is to make sure the clubs are the right length for you. Shaft flex is next, but for a beginner doesn't make much difference.

Uniflex are the most common shafts on modern golf clubs today. These are steel shafts, I think you might be confusing these for flexible graphite shafts designed for slower swing speedszcrosby89 wrote: ↑Nov 1st, 2017 8:09 amYes and No.
These clubs are game improvement irons, in that they have mechanisms help to accentuate the appropriate swing motion to an extent, which will help you get the ball in the air more easily and will forgive slight mishits at a greater rate. Unless someone gets their handicap under 10-15 ish, this type of iron is recommended, as compared to bladed irons.
Uniflex shafts can work for some people, but a lot of that really depends on the person. In my opinion, the stronger/more athletic you are, the less likely you would enjoy these shafts. They were created to try and bring a uniform flex for multiple people with different swing speeds to be able to use, but the end result isn't outstanding. The faster you swing, the stiffer the required shaft that would best suit your swing.
It might be worth heading to a store like Golf Town to try out a few uniflex sets to see if they feel comfortable. If you'll only ever play a few times a year, it might be a good idea. I've had an older version of slingshots before, and I loved them.

I've only had one store out of 4-5 not give me aPM with another CT. I was like that's too bad, I'll have to do my shopping at the store with the better customer service.

That being said, in irons, playing a shaft that's too stiff isn't much of a problem because you want consistency, not distance.
