Golf is a great game for kids to play, although it does take practice.
It's a great way for children to get outside, develop hand-eye co-ordination and ultimately have fun. It may look slow, but actually being out on the golf course promotes physical activity and is much better for kids than being glued to a tablet or television (although they certainly have their place, of course!).
So whether you're looking for your child's first proper set, more advanced clubs or just a golf toy game to see if they like it, we've listed the best junior golf clubs around.

Best For Advanced Junior Golfers
Ping Prodi G Junior Golf Package Set
If your child has mastered the strokes and has a competitive mindset, then it's time to get the big guns out. We think this is the best junior golf set around for advanced players, it includes a powerful set of key clubs that are forgiving yet accurate, and the bag is lightweight enough for them to carry around easily without affecting their game. It's a lot of money to fork out, but it does include a one-time service to have these junior golf clubs re-shafted or lengthened, re-weighted and re-gripped to optimise performance as they grow.
- Price: £949
- Age: 7 - 13 years
- Includes 10 clubs, one putter and bag
Best Toy Golf Set
Plan Toys Mini Golf Full Set
For a bit of golfing fun in the home and garden, you can't go far wrong with this mini golf club set. We love that the equipment is wood rather than plastic, and the set even includes a handy bag for the club and balls. The balls are rather heavy though, so it might be safer to play outside.
- Price: £34.77
- Age: 3+
- Includes two wooden clubs, two wooden balls, three tracks and one hole
Best Plastic Golf Set
Littlefun Kid Golf Cart Set
For young children to simply get an eye for the ball and experiment, toy golf sets are a great idea. This is perfect for either pretend play or for your child to try out a junior golf club for the first time. Kids love trying to get the balls in the holes with one of the three types of club included, and they'll even like just moving the wheeled cart around.
- Price: £26.99
- Age: 3+
- Includes three clubs, three balls, two target holes and one cart
Best First Putter
US Kids Junior 1st Club Steel Shaft Putter
Putting is a great way to get your toddler or pre-schooler started with golf, as it builds up their control. It's better quality than the toy golf clubs for children, so it's a great first step towards your child playing properly. We also love that it comes in a special gift box, so you and your child can enjoy the putter for years to come as a keepsake.
