Choosing your golf equipment is a critical aspect of the game. At Dunes Golf Centre in Fraserburgh, one question we often encounter is whether using same-brand golf clubs improves performance.

While comfort and consistency are appealing, could mixing brands lead to a superior game?

This post investigates.

The Limitations of Same-Brand Golf Clubs

  1. Restricted Versatility: Sticking with one brand can limit your exposure to different golf clubs that could potentially enhance your play.

  2. Overpaying: You may end up paying a premium for certain clubs, merely because they align with your brand preference.

  3. Potential Underperformance: Brands often excel in certain club types but may not be the best in others. A one-brand set could mean compromise on performance.

The Advantages of a Mixed Set

  1. Enhanced Performance: Different brands often specialise in different types of clubs. A mixed set allows you to get the best out of each club type.

  2. Tailored Experience: You can customise your golf set according to your specific playing style, strengths, and weaknesses.

  3. Value for Money: A mixed set can often be more cost-effective, as you can choose clubs based on their value rather than their brand.

The Quantifiable Difference

Switching to a mixed set may sound daunting, especially if you value consistency. However, the quantifiable differences can be significant:

  1. Improved Versatility: A mixed set can help you handle a variety of game situations more effectively.

  2. Enhanced Strengths: By choosing different brands for different club types, you can leverage each brand’s strengths and potentially improve your scoring.

  3. Personalised Adaptability: Over time, you can adapt to the subtle differences between your clubs, leading to a more personalised and effective playing style.


While the thought of a non-matching set might cause a twitch for the more OCD among us, the potential rewards make it a worthy consideration. At Dunes Golf Centre, we believe that the best golf set is one tailored to the individual player. It might require stepping out of your comfort zone, but the potential performance boost could be significant.
