Buyer’s Guide: Best drivers for under £300


There’s no other feeling around like hitting a bomb off the first tee whilst everyone is watching you.

Year after year we see incremental changes in the technology behind drivers, but with that benefit also comes an increase in price tag.

When it comes to golf clubs, the more expensive the club certainly doesn’t mean that it’s better than the one before it.

That’s why we’ve put together this buyer’s guide, where we give you the lowdown on whether these are the big sticks that could take your game to the next level this season – and protect your hard earned cash in turn.

Best drivers for under £300

Callaway Rogue Golf Driver – FREE Golf Umbrella with this club!

Rogue employs improved Jailbreak Technology with new, hourglass-shaped titanium bars that are 25% lighter while fulfilling their function to stiffen the crown and sole. The stiffer body allows the face to take on more impact-load to promote faster ball speed and makes possible our new X-Face VFT face architecture, which promotes fast ball speed across an expansive area of the face. Together, Jailbreak and X-Face VFT work together to create what we call the Jailbreak Effect, which promotes a remarkable boost in ball speed and distance.

Key Features:

  • Jailbreak Technology & X-Face VFT Technology
  • Triaxial Carbon Crown
  • Boeing Aero Package
  • 2-Year Guarantee & Aldila Synergy Graphite Shaft / Golf Pride New Decade Grip
