I need some advice guys, I'm really interested in buying a set of golf clubs nothing too fancy just a set that I can "grow" on. I've done only driving ranges and I wanna move onto 18 holes, so I'm basically a newbie and not really sure what I need. I found a couple of sets that I think are good so any and all inputs are appreciated! :D

It looks like you want to keep cost low, makes sense, especially in the beginning. You may decide you don't like the game and you have money sunk into useless clubs.

Before I clicked on your links I planned on replying with Wilsons FatShafts. These were my first set, very forgiving clubs. PERFECT beginner set. Nice quality but costs a little more.

As for the Dunlops you linked to; do not go with graphite shafted irons, seniors use these because of much lower swing speeds.

Stay away from the sporting goods stores. They will sell you anything. Go to a few GOLF shops in your area. Look for the older folks in the shop and talk to them, they have patience. If you don't get the info and respect as a new buyer at that shop, go to another. Have them set you up with a set that have the correct shaft lengths and flex.

If you end up enjoying the sport (which has become hard for me as riding and golf are my only fair weather hobbies), and in the beginnig you picked an 'off the shelf one size fits all set', your swing and muscle memory will be off when you step up to 'fitted' clubs.
