We’ll admit it. Golf is expensive! From all of the equipment you need to buy to the green fees, range fees, you name it. Part of playing golf is investing in the right equipment. We love a good day on the golf course and we also love finding equipment that can save us a buck or two. That’s why we decided to take an in-depth look at the Lazrus Golf wedge set. Our goal was to see if these wedges could withstand the skepticism of a “budget” golf club. How does the wedge set hold up? Check out our Lazrus Golf review below and find out!
Who Is Lazrus Golf?
Lazrus Golf was founded with the purpose of providing golfers of all skill levels with the equipment they need to play golf without breaking the bank. This company is an online-only retailer selling any club you need for your bag from putters all the way up to a driver (just announced in 2023).
While our Lazrus golf review will only focus on the wedges, Lazrus golf has expanded its offering to virtually any club you need to play a round of golf. Lazrus golf touts its ever-growing online presence with sales of over 400,000 clubs worldwide. Their reputation is great with almost 1,000 positive reviews for its golf wedges alone.
What is the club head made of?
Regardless of the color you choose, the wedge set has a forged club head with a milled face. If you look closely at the club face, you will see 15 horizontal grooves on the club face as well as a unique groove pattern across the club face. This will help produce spin and control with your wedge shots.
After a few hits with the Lazrus golf wedges, we noticed that the milled club face helped produce a good spin by getting the ball to stick when we hit the green. After a few hits with the black wedges in the sandtrap, we noticed that the black color started to scratch off. Be mindful of purchasing the black wedges as you will notice that the color can wear off over time.
What kind of shaft is included with the wedge?
All Lazrus golf wedges are built with a regular flex steel shaft. In our testing of the wedges from a distance or around the green, the shaft provided great feedback with each shot. When hitting wedges, the weight of the shaft as well as the feel when hitting the ball was ideal with the steel shaft. Most golfers will find the regular flex steel shaft fitting for their wedge needs.
If you are looking for the option to customize the shaft for a different flex or material (like graphite) you will need to look elsewhere. Regardless, Lazrus Golf touts this wedge set as fitting for 99% of golfers.
How much bounce on the club?
Here are the bounce angles for each wedge in the set:
- 52-degree wedge: 8 degrees bounce
- 56-degree wedge: 12 degrees bounce
- 60-degree wedge: 10 degrees bounce
Based on Vokey’s definition of wedge bounce, the 52 and 60-degree wedges are mid-bounce wedges and the 56-degree wedge is a high-bounce wedge. Generally speaking, a mid-bounce wedge is ideal for shots around the green (think chipping) while high-bounce wedges are ideal for creating lots of spin. High-bounce wedges are also great for soft or fluffy turf (think thicker grass).
How is the grip?
Right out of the box, the grip included with the wedge set felt great in the hand. The grip allowed us to take shots comfortably and with plenty of control throughout the swing.
The grip is also nicely designed with the Lazrus Golf logo at the bottom of the grip and some blue lines around the top and bottom of the grip. The size of the grips on the wedges was standard for our average size hand. The grip should not feel overly thick or thin for most golfers.

Who should get Lazrus golf wedges?
These wedges were designed for players of any skill set. Whether you are just getting started in golf or have been playing for years, we have found that the quality of these wedges can serve as your go-to in your bag.

What loft wedges can you buy from Lazrus?
In the three-wedge set, you can expect to get a 52, 56, and 60-degree wedge. You can also purchase each of these wedges individually. If you’re looking to create some big flop shots, you can also purchase a 64 or 72-degree wedge.
Can you get a left-handed wedge set?
Yes! All wedge sets are available for left-handed golfers. You can purchase a wedge set in any color available: black, silver, or rainbow.
Are Lazrus golf wedges good for seniors?
The short answer to this question is yes. However, it is important to note that there are a few factors to consider around the flex of the shaft with these wedges. The set is only produced with a regular flex. As Lazrus Golf says, this flex type will fit 99% of golfers. If you are a senior and have used senior flex shafts for other clubs, you may want to consider the flex in this shaft when purchasing.
Are the Lazrus golf wedges easy to use?
Right out of the box, these wedges are ready to hit the golf course. The overall quality of these clubs from the grip to the milled club face makes these wedges easily approachable for golfers of any skill level

Not only was the wedge set suitable, but it also exceeds expectations of what you can get at the price point. Shot after shot, we were delighted with the results in distance, control, and feel.
