Seriously, dont waste your money! These clubs are truly awful and you would be much better off going to your local PGA Golf Professional who can make sure you are set up with a set of clubs that will help you play the game rather than mess your game up!!
Shafts are far too whippy if you hold onto the head and the grip you can physically twist the club around, imagine what is happening when you are actually swinging! Components are pretty bad too.
Your local golf pro has been trained to... (read more)

Not bad clubs if you make sure to stay away from the graphite ones! Had a set a while back and they were AWFUL! Get steel shaft instead as these are far more reliable and instantly kills the "Whippyness" of the graphite.
Also be sure to stay away from the graphite drivers.. Those are catastrophically bad.. again try if you really HAVE to.. get a steel driver.. it still wont be great but for £8 its not a bad way to start golf
The main problem is that there are a lot of golf snobs out there... (read more)

These clubs are a waste of time and money you will never get better if you buy these, i bought a set when i just started out 3 years a go and was happy hitting my driver 175 as i got better i spent £ £ £ £ on lessons to get more power and spent hours every day working on my swing, i still can't hit the driver past 175, just bought a set of cleveland cg tour irons and i hit the 6 iron170, the trouble is WITH the dunlops the shafts are only good if you have a very slow swing due to the torque...

Very pleased with the Dunlop & Donnay 65i set overall. Shafts are longer than my Howson clubs were, and this may be what is contributing to my getting more distance from them. The shafts flex a bit more than the steel shafted Howson's, but again I've found no discomfort from this.
Good beginner set, comfortable to use and generally very forgiving. (read more)

I bought these clubs as a starter set for pennies from sports world. They were very good for hacking my way round the golf course and I've had them until now where I'm a handicap of 15. I didn't like the driver from the offset so splashed out and bought myself a Cobra 454 and have since went on to a Callaway ft 3 which is on offer at the moment at a reputable US based British golf site ( I don't want to advertise) back to the clubs. As a beginner club they will show you no mercy and you... (read more)

I, like many others bought these clubs due to their price, and with a name like Dunlop I expected quality. However, all is not what it seems, after a couple of uses, the head on my 7i came loose. Many others seem to have had the same issue. I thought about taking it back, but for the sake of 5 quid I decided to fix it myself. I removed the shaft, sanded, files and cleaned the end and drilled the old glue from the core of the shaft. I did the same to the head. Using Araldite Rapid ( as... (read more)

As an absolute beginner I was not very keen to spend GBP 200.00, or more on golf clubs. I luckily bumped into the Dunlop & Donnay 65i 65i 12-sets golf clubs at World of Sports for GBP 66.00, and my daughter convinced me that I should buy them. Probably the best GBP 66.00 I have ever spent. One of my friends, who is a very keen golfer tried the 7I and the driver (he's got a + GBP 400.00 set of clubs) and he was very much impressed. I do not know much about golf yet, all I know that these... (read more)

As you might've gathered, I'm a complete golf novice and have been looking for a decent set of clubs to start me off. I saw a deal in Soccer World and managed to pick a full set of Dunlop & Donnay 65i clubs (plus loads of extras) up for 73 of your English pounds!! I've had them out on the driving range and out for a few rounds. They are all you need, if you are just starting off. I got a few of my vastly more experienced golf buddies to road test them. They were suitably impressed.

Dunlop & Donnay 65i Golf Irons are nice to use but the Club shafts come loose and as a result cause the fibre glass shafts to break. I'm very disappointed with the purchase I made and don't know how to contact Dunlop about this, as the shop I purchased the clubs from, has closed down. (read more)

There seems to problems with the glue used on the Dunlop and Donnay 65i irons. The heads on the irons are either loose or off completely . I've hardly used them. Have contacted Sportsworld. Awaiting their comments.
Can the heads be rivetted? (read more)

I bought the Dunlop & Donnay 65i golf irons at Sports World, they very good value with 80% off the retail price of £239.00.
They are a good solid club with a slightly wider face which should make it easy to hit the ball with!
Also a bit heavier than my first cheap Pinseeker half set
I have only had them for a while so still need to get completely comfortable with them. So far so good! (read more)

Dunlop & Donnay 65i were the first set of clubs I have bought and they are proving their worth. I looked around at other sets in the value of £200+ and wasn't prepared to pay that much as a beginner, then I came across the Dunlop 65i's and for £80. I managed to pick up a 1W, 5W, DI, 2-9I, PW, LW and a putter. With the driver I can hit 200+ yards and with the Irons I can achieve plenty of altitude, as a begginer I do hit some suspect fade/slice shots but don't know how much of this is down to... (read more)
