TripSavvy's Pick

We love the Callaway Strata Tour 16-Piece Women’s Set (view on Amazon) for its top-of-the-line design. The wide-ranging 16-piece club selection sets up golfers for most situations they’ll encounter on the course and suits players with a variety of handicaps. We like the Confidence Lady Power III set as a cost-effective way to get all the essentials for a value pick.

Whether you’re taking a family golf vacation or an advanced player touring the top courses, a quality set of clubs is essential. The best women’s clubs share many of the same technologies that make men’s clubs great; however, these clubs are designed particularly for women’s stance, frame, and needs. With so many options on the market, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. And with price tags starting at several hundred dollars and climbing from there, you’ll want to ensure you’re making the right investment.

We’ve scoured the latest gear to bring you the best women’s golf clubs on the market.

What We Like
  • Extensive selection of clubs

  • Lightweight

What We Don't Like
  • Some reviewer noticed denting early on

It should be no surprise that one of the top brand names in golf gear, Callaway, makes a superior women’s set of clubs. The Strata Tour 16-piece set emphasizes forgiveness and performances that many levels of golfers appreciate. You can play a lot of golf with the selection of clubs in this set. It includes a driver, 3 wood, 4 and 5 hybrid, 6 to 9 irons, a pitching wedge, and a Sand wedge. The set comes in a lightweight stand bag with four head covers. The choice of clubs matches women’s needs. For example, the driver has a titanium head perfect for maximizing distance. The fairway wood has an aerodynamic head shape that tees up long, high-flying shots. For the putter, a mallet putter (instead of a blade putter) is also more forgiving.

What to Look for in Women's Golf Clubs

Shaft Material

Women’s clubs generally feature a graphite shaft, which decreases the club weight. With a lighter weight, women can increase swing speed and overall distance.

Grip Size and Comfort

Women’s clubs are made with smaller grips—since their hands are generally not as large as men’s. The grips are also made thinner. Make sure your grip allows your hands to be in the proper position and that you can maintain consistent grip pressure throughout your swing.

Flexibility

Clubs are designated as “Ladies” flexibility, which is related to your swing speed and strength. If possible, locate clubs with stiff, regular, and senior shafts as opposed to those with a universal shaft.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What’s the difference between men’s and women’s clubs?

    The first difference is length. Men’s clubs are designed to fit people who are 5 feet, 9 inches tall, while women’s clubs are better suited to people 5 feet, 7 inches tall. With this in mind, taller women can often play with men’s clubs. Cindy Miller, who competed on the LPGA Tour from 1979 to 1981 and was the 2018 National LPGA Teacher of the year, observes that arm length plays a role in club choice. “I happen to be 5 feet 6 inches tall and use men’s clubs because I have short arms,” she writes. “The number of inches your knuckle is from the ground determines the length of clubs. If your knuckle is 30 or more inches from the ground, you will need men’s clubs. If your knuckle is between 26.5 and 29.5 inches from the ground, ladies’ length clubs are for you.” Length isn’t the only difference. Women’s clubs are also customarily designed with lighter shafts, smaller grips, a greater loft angle, and more flexibility.

  • Should I buy individual clubs or a set?

    It’s generally less expensive to purchase a set than individual clubs in the long run. If you’re a newcomer to the game, sets also allow you to experiment with the spectrum of clubs and fine-tune your tastes. You can always supplement or swap out clubs as your preferences develop.

  • Do I need to get my golf clubs fitted?

    If you want to play well, yes. Ideally, you should have a golf pro help fit your clubs. “Your golf clubs are one of the most important parts of your game. Correctly fitted clubs or incorrectly fitted clubs will seriously impact your game and affect your handicap,” says golf pro Oneda Castillo, based out of Fayetteville, Georgia. When fitting clubs, the pro should consider your swing speed, age, height, skill level (handicap), 150-yard club use, and ball fitting.
