2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 15 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
product was poor quality and the image makes the product look larger and better quality than what it actually is. Details on the product should be more clear. Poor.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cute, but flawed 4 April 2012
By P. Phan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This kit is pretty much exactly what you're expecting. No more, no less. It's a nice little gift to give to that golf enthusiast in your life, but I imagine the novelty will wear off pretty quickly.

COMPONENTS (2.5/5)
My biggest complaint is the golf balls, which knocks 2 off the score. They're roughly the size of airsoft pellets and just as heavy (read: way too light), making them extremely easy to lose and also making the whole thing feel like a cheap toy rather than a functional game. The kit also loses half a point for the hole: it's a hassle to fish them out of the hole; you might have to use a toothpick or something similar. The clubs are thankfully NOT made of plastic, but of some sort of metal. You get an iron and a putter, both of which have a satisfying weight to them. The green is plastic and felt; no complaints there (besides the hole).

The kit also comes with a small book, which gives a very brief history of golf and thereafter concerns itself with suggesting ways to recreate an authentic golf course experience in your home/ office. Not very funny, IMO, and definitely not worth reading more than once.

CONCLUSION
It's cute, but the gimmicky golf balls really bring it down. It's maybe suitable for a Secret Santa affair or "randomly thought of you" gift, but overall I would say it's not worth the price. Unless, of course, your person really, really loves their golf, or is Stuart Little. Stuart would probably want heavier golf balls too, though.

Too cute and perfect size for the desk or a care-package. Arrived quickly and in great condition - couldn't ask for anything more.
