    No, because the distances will vary depending on the ball you use.

    And even with the same ball, the starter gear has such a big circle of precision, that the balls would've been scattered all over the place, left, right, long and short.

    Agreed. It's practically pointless. (Don't ask how I know this.) In order to obtain a decent, reliable starter-club chart, you'd probably have to conduct in-depth studies of all the contours, undulations and elevations of every hole available in this game because your shot results depend more on the roll rather than the flight trajectory itself with the default starter clubs and ball.

    Basic rule on starter club/balls combo ...

    They will land 10 yards short and roll out to the rated distance.  Since spin is not a factor, if the pin is just over a bunker, don't try flag hunt.  If there is water (think Congressional #10), you have to clear the water so one is likely to have a long putt back.  Otherwise, one has to go through the gap that is usually there in front of green.  Obviously, if it's a back pin, one can hit the green and roll it up.
