Direct-to-Consumer Golf Clubs for the Everyday Player
At Stix, we believe every player should have access to high-quality clubs without breaking the bank. We’ve poured our hearts into creating the most cutting-edge golf clubs for the everyday player and made them available for a fraction of the price by offering them direct-to-consumer.
Stix clubs look better and play like other brand-name clubs that cost three times as much. Because we don’t use a dealer network to sell our clubs, we’re able to use the best materials available without marking up the price.
Each club is made with a combination of titanium, stainless steel, and graphite, premium materials that allow you to swing faster and hit farther while maintaining control over the ball. Our clubs play like a dream, on par with the ones many advanced players use. You can truly feel the difference between Stix clubs and the bargain or beginner sets you’ll find in big box stores–there’s absolutely no comparison.
Stix clubs utilize the latest golf technology to bring you affordable clubs that improve your game. Each driver was created to give you the maximum distance, each wedge with the perfect amount of loft, and each putter to give you the right amount of control over the ball. With forgiveness in every club, you’ll be playing the best game of your life.
Choose the right flex option and shaft length to dial in your set to your personal preferences. No matter your skill level, our modern, high-tech clubs will deliver exactly what you need to perform your best on the course.
Stix clubs are confidence boosters. When you look good, you feel good… and play even better. Our sleek, minimalistic design approach yields some of the most breathtaking clubs on the market.
Each club features an all-black, scratch-resistant finish that keeps your clubs looking great game after game. Whether you’re a beginner, weekender, or diving into competitive playing, our clubs are dressed to impress.
Folks that buy our direct-to-consumer clubs are kind of obsessed. And we get it–our clubs look great, play better, and are priced affordably. But we don’t want you to just take our word for it. We’ve had review after review come in praising Stix clubs. Players love the look and feel of our clubs and love watching strokes fall off their game even more.
“I’ve had these clubs for about 6 months now and they are awesome.
These clubs have improved my game and gotten me out on the course way more often. I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on these clubs and I never hesitate to recommend them to friends and family (I also got my brother to buy a set) I was hesitant at first but have now recommended them to a ton of people in the same boat. In addition, the customer service is killer! Keep doing what you’re doing #teamstix”
“I have been playing on my beginner set for 9 years now and had been really wanting to upgrade my clubs, but had no desire to spend thousands on clubs when I’m just a weekend warrior. I found stix on instagram and loved the price point. Played 3 rounds with my new clubs and they fit my game perfectly, and they look fantastic out on the course. Highly recommend for all level of golfers”
“I’ve always used hand me downs and wanted a nice set but didn’t want to spend $ for a part time hobby. Found these but kept looking at bigger named brands and always found myself coming back to this site. Just couldn’t justify the money for something I truly don’t know much about. Decided to take a chance on these and I’m stoked I did. They look great and play great. I still had all the issues I have with every club (because I suck at golf) but these clubs seemed very forgiving. When I had a good shot it turned into a great shot.”
“Finally got the chance to play with these clubs, and I just love they way they feel! Super light compared to the first set I owned. I was close to buying a set of 1200 dollar irons, but I’m so glad I just picked up the 12-club set from stix! I’m very new to golf, but from the few times I’ve played I can definitely notice a difference with these clubs compared to my last.”
Our direct-to-consumer model means no middlemen and no aggressive markups. We bring you high-tech, modern clubs for a fair price, allowing you to get on the green without spending a lot of green. We also offer a variety of sets and single clubs so you can get exactly what you need without paying for what you don’t.
Customize Your Clubs
Our sets and individual clubs can be customized by shaft length and flex to make the clubs feel that much better. Not sure how to choose? We can help.
To keep things simple, we’ve got three golf club flex types to choose from. If you’ve got a slow, controlled swing with a driver distance around 200 yards or less, an Active Flex will work great for you. If your driver distance is over 230 yards and you’ve got a fast, heavy swing, a Stiff Flex will suit you perfectly. If you fall somewhere in the middle, like 80% of golfers do, our Regular Flex is the one for you.
As long as you know your height, you should be able to pick out the right golf club length. We’ve put together a chart to help you easily pick out the perfect length for your new clubs.
Don’t be too anxious about picking the right length or flex right off the cuff. We have a 30-day trial period that allows you to get a feel for the clubs. If you need to exchange for a different length or flex, just reach out to us and we’ll take care of the rest.
“I'm a relatively new golfer (about a year into it). I bought a starter set and ran with that for a while. Then I bought a nice driver. Then I bought this Stix set.
The clubs look really nice, which was what drew me to them originally (nice IG ads, btw). I took them out to the range last weekend and I'm really impressed with how they hit. I felt more control in the swing and none of the wonky stuff that I would see with my starter clubs… Exactly as advertised.”
“I am absolutely in love with these clubs. After seeing stix on one of my social media’s I was waiting until Rick Shiels gave them the green light for beginners like myself. They are lighter in weight than my hand me downs giving me better swing speed and longer distance. They are beautiful in appearance and I am constantly getting asked about them. Cannot wait to play more courses with these.”
“I’m a pretty beginner player and they are easy to hit far and pretty straight!”
“This is the first set of new clubs I have ever purchased...I love the look of the club's...super sexy in all black. Have not had issues yet with losing shine. All black design is super cool. I have picked up a good 10 to 15 yards on all of my drives with driver and irons. Overall very happy and the price was very good in comparison to other sets.”
“I'm still figuring out this game and have been using a hand me down set for a long time. It feels much better to keep learning with these slick looking Stix!”
“I’m definitely a casual golfer and new to the sport so these were exactly what I was looking for. I really like the consistency of feel across the board that all the clubs in my set have the same style grip, balance, club face and flex. Very helpful for someone who is trying to minimize variables and improve.”
“After going from 15-year old hand me downs to these, it is a night and day difference. Being a casual golfer these clubs are super forgiving and the coolest looking clubs I've seen. I love how the people at Stix didn't try to re-invent the wheel at an affordable price, best purchase I've made in a while!”
“I ordered Stix based on youtube reviews by GM Golf and Rick Shiels. I recently started playing again after a layoff of 15 years. My previous set was Honma and the technology was antiquated. After hitting balls on the range and playing twice with this set, I can tell you they feel great… The Irons are good looking and easy to hit. The driver and fairway metals feel premium. My favorite from the set is the Putter, well balanced with a soft feel. Really pleased with Stix.”
Stix clubs are designed with generous forgiveness, allowing you to still get distance on those less-than-perfect swings. Our clubs take the pressure off hitting the ball just right so you can concentrate on playing. With our clubs, you’ll play better and enjoy the game a lot more.

Questions About Our Direct-to-Consumer Clubs
Stix aren’t specifically for beginners. They’re for everyone.
In fact, they’re the clubs we designed for our own use after 20 years of golfing (albeit, casually). We wanted a quality set that would last and grow with our games.
So, we designed Stix clubs to be configured for any experience, ability and strength level. Whether you’re getting into the game for the first time, getting back into the game, or just getting serious, Stix has the clubs you need to look good and play better.
Stix clubs are designed for maximum forgiveness with beginner and intermediate players’ games in mind.
Across the club sets, the graphite shafts are strong but lightweight, so you can swing faster — even when you’re just getting into the swing of the game.
The heads are designed to enhance control and precision.
You can review the detailed specs on each kit page. But we won’t overwhelm you with the jargon. Too many would-be-golfers get stuck wading through technical features designed for high-level players. For beginners, extreme golf tech won’t make a difference in your game. It only wastes your money.
We keep it simple and focus on the tech that makes a difference for the rest of us — beginners and casual players who just want to play our best, from day one.
Premium golf clubs can add up to well over $2k, all in. That steep price keeps too many beginners from getting into the game with clubs they love.
But it doesn’t cost $2k to get a quality, well-designed set of clubs into your hands. (We know, because we’ve done it for far less.)
Stix is for those who want the quality of premium clubs without paying the premium price.
We’ve kept the high-end materials and design elements that meaningfully improve your game. And we dropped the unnecessary frills, like technology designed to give high-level players minute advantages.
The truth is, premium clubs are also pricey because of the waste and markups in the process of getting clubs from the factory to your hands. We’ve worked hard to cut out the high costs of inefficiencies. For example, we only sell online and we don’t carry a ton of inventory. That means we can pass the savings on to you.
Many do. Most of us at Stix learned to golf with ancient hand-me-downs. And there will always be beginner golfers who can get by with a used set of high-quality golf clubs.
But finding great quality used clubs with the right flex and length can be a challenge. And often, the design is outdated, so they feel clunkier and you can’t play at your best.
We noticed a big difference when we started playing golf with Stix. But don’t just take it from us. Check out the reviews from the many happy customers who say their game changed when they upgraded from hand-me-downs to Stix.
You can get bargain basement golf clubs, for sure. The clubs that golf brands market as “beginner sets” are, as you’d expect, not great quality. With poorly designed, poorly made clubs, you can’t play your best. And there’s the risk that you’ll drop the game because it doesn’t feel good.
Or, if you stick with the beginner set and improve your game anyway, you’ll feel the itch to upgrade quickly. And then you’ll spend twice on clubs, when you could spend once with Stix.
If you can invest a little more (but far less than most premium clubs), you can get a set of Stix clubs that you’ll be thrilled to use for years to come.
Nine clubs is all a beginner really needs. Until you’re swinging faster, for example, you won’t notice a difference between every iron. That’s why we offer the Casual Set of 9 essential clubs.
If you’re ready to try your hand at a wider range of irons, the 11-piece Classic Set is for you.
With the 14-piece Complete Set, you’ll get every club permitted on course — and every club you’ll ever need.
If you’re a beginner, it’s a matter of choice. Invest in more clubs now, with the certainty that you’ll keep up the game, or play it by ear and grab more clubs as you go.
Stix offers three flex options so that no matter your experience level and strength, you can find the perfect fit with our clubs.
The right club flex for you depends on your swing speed. Of course, if you’re just starting out, you might not know your speed. And your speed might vary quite a bit from shot to shot.
Not to get too technical, but… The more flexible the club shaft, the more it compensates for slower swing speeds (it’s more forgiving). The stiffer the club shaft, the more exact the ball trajectory is to a golfer's swing.
If you know your swing speed, use this guideline to choose your flex:
Stiff Flex: 84-104 MPH
Regular Flex: 76-96 MPH
A-flex: 75 and under MPH
Beginner golfers typically do best with regular flex because it helps even out inconsistent swing speed. But some prefer to learn on stiff flex clubs.
If you choose the wrong flex, don’t worry. The 30-Day Trial gives you 30 days from receipt of the clubs to determine if they are the right fit for you. As long as you contact us and get the clubs in the mail within 30 days we can exchange them for clubs with different flexibility or length.
Every golfer's build is different but we've made it easier to choose the length by giving height guidelines.
Standard length is built for golfers typically between 5’7” and 6’2”
-.5” length clubs generally fit those between 5’4” and 5’7”
-1” length clubs are recommended for players between 5’0” and 5’4”
+.5” length clubs generally fit those between 6’2” and 6’4”
+1” length clubs generally fit those between 6’4” and 6’7”
Technically, the length of your club should be based on the measurement from your wrist to the floor when you're in your stance. This generally follows height parameters, which is why we share these guidelines.
What if your height falls on the border of two lengths? Generally, it's best to go with the longer length of the two options. For example, if you are 5’4”, choose -.5” length clubs. It's easier to use clubs that are a touch too long than clubs that are too short.
But don’t stress the question of club length. With the 30-Day Trial, you can try Stix clubs out risk-free. As long as you contact us and get the clubs in the mail within 30 days we can exchange them for clubs of a different length or flex.
Need a custom length? Send an email to email@example.com and we’ll walk you through the options.
At Stix, we’re not fans of the ‘pink it and shrink it’ philosophy to women’s clubs. Just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean you need smaller, pinker clubs.
Stix clubs are for everyone. We have clubs of various lengths and flexes to match the game of anyone who’s ready to get out there and enjoy the game.
We keep the estimated shipping time frame front and center on all product pages and throughout the purchase process.
In some cases, club sets are backordered — we’ll make that very clear, so there are no surprises. And of course, if you order custom clubs, we’ll need a bit more time to customize those for you.
We ship from our HQ just outside Chicago, Illinois. Once the clubs are in the mail to you, domestic orders will typically arrive within 7-10 days. International orders typically take 7-14 days. As soon as your clubs are in the mail we will send you a tracking number that you can obsess over until they arrive.
If you have questions about your order you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We stand behind all of our products and will correct any issues related to manufacturing and/or workmanship for 6 months. If you have an issue with any club purchased directly from Stix Golf Co., we will be happy to assist in correcting the situation by repairing or replacing your clubs. Please send all warranty inquiries to email@example.com.
Yes, you can. The 30-Day Trial begins the day you receive your clubs. Unwrap and golf with your Stix clubs on or off-course for 30 days, then decide. Learn more about our return policy here.
