I have a decent swing, I need consistency (among other things). I feel I can attain that with my own set of clubs instead of borrowing from someone all the time.
I know what you meant
Yeah, you'll get that consistency with your own set. Something Like these will do you just fine
I wouldn't buy a all in one set for under $300 that includes a driver because those drivers and woods are pieces of crap and will not do you any good with consistency. You can get a good used driver and woods at Golfsmith for a decent price, and they'll let you hit a couple balls for free so you can decide if you like the feel of them before you buy (other golf stores do the same).
I know you said "under $200", but I would say you're more looking at $300-400 with a bag, clubs, driver, and one or two woods.
Although, if you're a garage sale shopper you could get lucky and find a good set for under $200 from some guy that thought he'd take up golf, paid $600 for a good set, and then realized he can't do what those guys on TV do.
Last winter, my Dad went to an Estate Sale and found a two year old barely used full set of Cobra's: 4-pw, graphite shafts, putter, hybrid 2 & 3, Fairway Woods, and Driver with tour bag for around $100. If he'd gone to a shop and bought the exact same set used, they would have cost $300-$400.
