MacGregor CG3000 Package Golf Set Review: “Best Beginner Golf Set of 2022”
If you’re a beginner golfer and don’t fancy paying big bucks for a brand new set of high end golf clubs that will easily set you back four figures, look no further than the impressive MacGregor set. CG3000 this season.
The entry level CG3000 set offers unmatched value with the option of steel or graphite shafts in the irons and also a choice of stand or cart bag option.
This set includes a Ti-Matrix driver, fairway wood, 6-SW stainless steel hybrid irons, putter and golf bag.
13° 460cc titanium matrix driver with optimal weight for incredible distance
Low profile, hybrid fairway wood designed with a low center of gravity for maximum performance
6-SW stainless steel irons with undercut cavity to keep the center of gravity low and deep for improved launch and better ball flight
Mallet style putter
A durable and luxurious MacGregor branded nylon bag supplied with 3 matching headgear
Left and right options available
1 inch longer or shorter steel rest options with clubs suitable for taller or shorter golfers.
Hands down the best men’s budget set we’ve seen in some time at a very reasonable £369.
While you don’t quite get a complete set of 6-SW irons, you do get a hybrid to cover that middle ground between fairway wood and driver.
Each of the irons was particularly forgiving and very easy to get off the ground, but in Roy Keane’s words, that’s their job.
The toplines are quite thick, but that’s to be expected for a budget set of maximum game-enhancing irons.
The driver comes in at 13 degrees, which is a little higher than your typical 9 or 10.5 degree models on the market, but it certainly helps you get off the ground if you’re having trouble getting the ball off the tee.
You’ll still hit the ball pretty far with the driver, just like with the 18 degree fairway wood, a club we found very easy to hit nicely on a tee or fairway lie.
There’s quite a bit of lag on the 24-degree hybrid, which might put some of you off, but to be honest for the beginner golfer, that’s exactly what you want to help you hit your ball. If you need help, offset can be your friend.
The offset is where the head neck or hosel is positioned in front of the club head face, so that the club face appears to be set back a little from the club neck.
All in all, these might not be the sleekest clubs around, but they each do the trick for a player looking for game-enhancing performance.
And to be blunt, if you’re a beginner just looking to enjoy the game and find your way without having to pay top dollar on new premium clubs such as TaylorMade, Callaway and PING, the CG3000 set is the alternative. perfect for you.
A great set for someone spending quite a bit of money on classes right now, or just someone who just wants to have a friendly hit with some buddies once in a while this season.
We also thought the putter was very reasonable, and even tested it against a premium Bettinardi putter which you can watch in the video above.
The only downside to the putter for us was the putter’s fairly thin grip, and the feel wasn’t as strong as a more high-end flatstick. However, he looks great and inspires a lot of confidence on the ball as he frames the ball well.
The stand bag is also particularly robust and looks great. It also has plenty of space for all your accessories, which adds to its appeal.
A superb offering from MacGregor and great value for the beginner golfer.
Once you’ve improved a bit, only then we recommend upgrading to a more premium set.
