I saw lots of posts with different tools but is there a cost effective tool to use for diagnosis and clearing of codes? Novice user here. Thanks!!

The VAG specific tool that's often recommended most is Ross-Tech's VAG-COM. However, any OBD-II scan tool should be able to give you insight into a check-engine light. You can find basic scan tools from $50 up to very advanced ones for many thousands. If you plan to do any bi-directional work (resetting service indicators, coding, etc.) you'll need something on the higher-end (not just a basic scan tool).
