The first set of golf clubs that belongs to me, hits as well, if not better, than the other golf clubs that I've used, and all for under C$200. The driver does curve to the right quite a lot, but I'm 99% sure that's just me... Highly recommend it as a starter set or backup, can't go wrong with the price.

Fantastic Clubs at a Great PriceJan. 11 2012
- Published on Amazon.com
As a beginner golfer, I needed a set of clubs that was affordable (In case I decided I didn't like playing golf) and of a descent enough quality that I would be able to learn effectively. After doing my research, I decided on this set. I couldn't be happier with my choice. The clubs are fantastic. My co-workers/friends with over 20 years of golfing experience tried them out with me and agreed that for the money, these clubs greatly exceeded their expectations even. I can keep up with the better players, and it doesn't hurt that the clubs look great either.
The Putter is great. The long arrow along the top of it helps in aiming your shots, and the 2 cutout sections make a great ball retriever when your balls rolls into a stream or pond within easy reach. The Driver is light and powerful, as is the 3W and 3H.
The bag is of pretty good quality, surprisingly. It is a nice stand bag with enough pockets to hold your balls, extra clothes, valuables, and the included hood cover. There is an umbrella hook and towel hook. The best part about the bag is the very comfortable straps that let you wear it like a backpack. That makes carrying it around very easy. Rather than one single shoulder strap, you get a harness that easily slides on just like a backpack, and keeps the clubs from falling out. Then when you are ready to hit, slide the bag off, the stand automatically deploys, and choose your club. Couldn't ask for more. The mechanism that deploys the stand works quite well, but because of it's size, it makes it harder to put this bag on an electric or push/pull cart. harder, but not impossible, you just have to slightly angle the bag to it's side. Very slighlty. If you are going to always use a cart, I would recommend getting a cart bag, but this one still works either way. Remember, it's a stand bag, not a cart bag.
The 7 openings for clubs is pretty easy to figure out. 14 individual lined slots would have been preferred, but you won't get that at this price point. There is a recognizable putter well in the front, a slot for your PW, 3 slots for your 3 woods/hybrids, and 2 large slots to split your 4, 5, 6 and 7, 8, 9 irons. Pretty self explanatory.
Altogether, this is a fantastic value for the price. My "more pro than me" golf buddies tell me this is a really great beginner set that should last me a few years while I get into the sport. I am very pleased with the improvement in my game using this set versus the rental sets from the courses. You won't be dissapointed, either.

Low Price High QualityMay 10 2012
- Published on Amazon.com
I did much research (about 2 days) before purchasing a nice golf set for myself. I noticed the Pinemeadow clubs were a 16-piece set that included the following: a 10.5 degree driver w/ head cover, a 15 degree 3 wood w/ head cover, a 21 degree #3 hybrid w/ head cover; 4,5,6,7,8,9 irons and a pitching wedge (PW), a pre mallet putter; and lastly, a dual strap carrying bag with a kick stand and rain hood.
I reviewed their website and liked what I read about the company that makes the Pinemeadow brand golf clubs, also noticing the other reviews from amazon and other online shopping sites that sold this particular 16-piece set made me confident with my purchase. As soon as they arrived, I examined each one of them and let me reassure you that they were much better looking in person. They seem to be very durable and knowing that most of the clubs are stainless steel made that obvious. The driver and the 3 wood have a graphite shaft which suits those particular clubs very well. I am very, very pleased with my purchase!
Thank you Pinemeadow for making great quality clubs and thank you Amazon for your low prices!

This is a very good set for beginning golfersNov. 1 2012
- Published on Amazon.com
I had recently taken the game up and knew it was time to upgrade from my Pawn-shop specials to a something the guys wouldn't clown me about. I did quite a bit of research online and tried to look at online reviews as a guide to help me. Okay, when I saw all the 5 star reviews, I thought for sure there was some "hype" conjured up by the manufacturer. However, after talking to a few folks at the course, most agreed that PineMeadow makes some pretty good products for the money. With that in mind, I took a chance and ordered the PRE set off Amazon. It also helped that I had recently purchased a PineMeadow P590 driver that I was content with.
The PRE Set comes with Driver, 3-Wood, 3 Hybrid and 4-PW irons. I also ordered a PRE 5 Hybrid and a PRE SW to help round out my play. I have now played about 7 rounds holes since I received them last month and these are my impressions:
1)I think the PRE Driver is a good one for a golf newbie, and I am liking it more and more as time goes along. It hits good and straight with a lot of forgiveness, but beware that it is no long distance bomber. 2) The 3 Wood is fairly impressive..I hit much better off the fairways with this than my old one 3 wood and the honest distance improvement is 15-20 yards(no joke..) 3)The set doesn't have a 5 wood, but it has a 3 HYBRID...Which I still find a little bit unweildy compared to the hybrid in my junker set...The quality and balance seem fine..probably just a matter of me getting used to it as I am slicing a lot with it. Same deal with the PRE 5 Hybrid that I purchased separately. 4) The irons I love--they are all well crafted and I had no problem getting them up in the air to approximately where the ball needs to go. They don't hit long but the set has the easiest 4 iron I have ever hit....A bigg plus is that my conrol seems 100% better with this set with the exception of the PW which I find a little hard to negotiate....However, the 56deg SW is a Godsend and is my bread and butter close in. 5) The only real negative I found was with the putter as it didn't seem balanced and I consistently pulled the putts with it...For now I am still going with my old putter until I can find something better.
The set came with three headcovers that I really like. They look good, seem durable, and should last at least a few years. However, the Pinemeadow Bag that it came with is really a low end one and it is already fraying. It also looks like a cheap bag (Hey you kinda want people to take you serious!) Additionally, I have broken the zipper already on one of the pockets. I will definitely swap out with my old bag as it is a lot better quality than this thing.
Yeah, I know I could have gotten a good used name brand set for what I paid---but bottom line for a measely $225 total, I got a set of of new clubs that is already helping my game and that should last me at least a few years...Hopefully by then my game will have improved to the point where I warrant investing big money in a new set of Callaway, Ping, or Taylormade. There you have it...I think overall, it is a good buy for the money I spent for it. I really don't how you can do too much better than what I did with this price.

NOT SO GREAT ANYMOREMay 30 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
I purchased these set of golf clubs on May 14th for my boyfriend and he loved them. They are great quality and very nice set for the price. There's no need to spend more than $200 if you are looking to get back into the game or getting more golf practice. These clubs will do the job. However, he only used them twice and the bag broke. The strap buckles are made of cheap plastic and they snapped. Also, the shoe compartment is breaking, the seam where the zipper is connected is breaking and will not last more than a few days before it completely has a hole. I'm reaching out to the company for a replacement bag and/or set.
Adding on to the previous review, I received my replacement set and long and behold the strap on the bag broke again on the first use. This bag is poorly made it can't even hold the weight from the set. The company needs to look into making better strap buckles, these are made of cheap plastic that bends easily. Just because of the bag problems I wouldn't rate the item 5 stars as a complete set. It defeats the purpose if I have to get the bag replaced and spend more money. Not good at all. I rate the golf clubs 5 stars and the bag 0 stars!
Adding on yet again, I received the replacement bag and the first time my boyfriend used it, it broke again and now even the straps are coming apart. NOT WORTH IT! The golf clubs are just fine but the bag is complete garbage it doesnt even hold the weight of the clubs.
Adding on yet again, after having issues with the bag and having to contact the manufacturer for a better bag, now one golf club cracked after my boyfriend got a perfect hit on the ball. These golf clubs are NOT good. It's better to spend a little more to avoid having to return it or get a partial refund. Buy it once and don't bother being cheap about it, afterall it's not a cheap sport to begin with!

Good for the price - only downsides, VERY SOFT DRIVER SHAFT, okay bag quality.June 15 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
I was considering giving these clubs 3 stars, but bumped it to 4 because of the price. Would be 5 starts but the driver flex is very soft for men. Soft driver flex might be fine for women / seniors.
Woods: I just got back from a golf lesson which the instructor told me the driver shaft is too soft; the flex was comparable to a women's driver. When compared to other men's shafts of "regular" flex, it's obvious. The shaft is like jello. I'm now looking at $75-$150 for a decent used driver, while I could've just spent $300 on a set that has better woods and includes an extra club (likely a sand wedge, which is not included in this set).
Irons: The irons & putter are great, no complaints there.
Bag: The rain cover ripped by one of the buttons that attaches it to the bag, while I was taking it off (I was not being careless and tugging hard to remove the cover). The padding which covers the club compartments came off after about 2 rounds of golf. They're just glued together, and seemed like the glue / padding was old and dried out. I contacted Pinemeadow directly about the issues and a brand new bag is on the way to me now. Great customer service.
Overall: Good for the price. Keep in mind you're getting 11 clubs with this set. Driver, 3 wood, 3 hybrid, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, PW. Wish there was a sand wedge in here, but again... for the price, can't complain. This set of clubs is probably perfectly suited for women or seniors considering the soft shaft flex on the driver. However, for males, it's a bit too soft and you'll likely grow out the driver or want to upgrade soon if not immediately to improve your game.
