Advice on clubs: buy him the cheapest ones going.
If (as with many of these hobbies taken up in haste) he never plays again after August, then you'll have wasted less money and he'll not feel so bad about asking you to spend it.
However, if he really takes to it, as with many blokes and their hobbies, (and I'm not claiming personal exempt status) he'll want to spend tantalising hours buying magazines, looking on the net, going to shops, boring his friends, saving, thinking, getting bored and then spending a huge amount of his own money on whatever he thinks are the current funky clubs of the time. You really shouldn't rob him of this experience (which will probably give more satisfaction than any game of golf played).
...if you press it, they will come.
