Are you, and your friends, frequent visitors to Swansea’s best golf courses? Then for your next weekend away why not impress everyone with a brand new set of clubs?
Here is a list of the best golf clubs of 2014:
Calloway Apex – £799
These Apex irons are distance engineered forged club heads, with tungsten sole inserts for maximum performance. Weight is positioned low and deep, whereas the steel face generates an extra 2mph ball speed on impact, meaning you can hit further down that fairway. Plus the tungsten weight on the 3, 4 and 5 irons means your swing will be much smoother, making hitting the ball easier.
Many would say you can’t get game improvement out of a forged club, but Calloway have done it! Whether you are a leisurely golfer or a professional, a Calloway Apex iron is sure to suit you, and up that ball speed.

Cleveland Golf 588 Altitude – £449
Cleveland Golf clubs may not have the prestige of Calloway, but they also don’t have the price tag. They’re much more affordable!
This is a club created for mid-high cappers who have a slower swing speed. Made of blended hybrid-iron, whatever club you play, you are bound to get great air – hence the name.

The 588 Altitude has a full hollow construction, so like the Calloway there is a low and deep centre of gravity. This is a bit more forgiving than other clubs on the market. Plus the bendable hosel, means it can fit with almost any swing.
This is a great club for an improving golfer.
Cobra Baffler XL – £399
With its oversized face this is the perfect club for a golfer looking for game improvement. It has a high trajectory and a draw-biased ball flight, with a wide sole and oversized rails. That means no more grass tufts for you.
This is the club for you if you are looking for a higher and longer distance hit from any lie. There is also great slice correction and a large free floating face.
The Cobra Bafler is the perfect club for those looking for dynamic and different design, but aren’t too worried about maximum impact off the face.

Mizuno JPX-EZ – £429
Add a little colour to your bag this winter with this stylish Mizuno iron. The 4 to 7 irons have an ultra pocket cavity to help this club give you a predictable long and high hit. And thanks to the harmonic impact technology (H.I.T.) it has that recognisable Mizuno feel about it.
This club says it all in its name ‘EZ’. With great forgiveness and airborne capabilities this is a must-buy for any golfer looking for value for money.

Nike VR_S Covert – £450
The long irons are made of high-strength, 450-Carpenter steel and the short from 1704 stainless steel, so you know they’ve really thought about the feel of these clubs.
These irons will pass through turf without creating a divot, and it looks much better than the basic VR_S thanks to a 16% narrower sole; a much appreciated improvement.
This is a club designed solely for the game improver, but thanks to its crisp hits and straight lines we’re sure no golfer would be disheartened to use it.
Now you know the best clubs out there make a splurge and get kitted out before your next visit to the Dragon Hotel. Where will you be playing next? Pyle and Kenfig, Fairward or Clyne Golf Club? They’re all great!
