I recently bought my wife a new set of clubs for her Christmas present. She has been playing golf for 20 or so years but never really committed to it, rather staying as a social player even though she is really quite good. She enjoys the sport but would rather spend her money on other things so I thought why not buy her a new set that will improve her game and get her out there more. I know for me that buying new gear and products really motivates me to get back into a sport so I’ll be sure to update you on how she goes!

Lady Golf Clubs
When it comes to ladies golf clubs and sets there are a few key things you need to look for. I spent a lot of time researching the clubs I bought and will share which ones at the end of this post along with my suggestions for complete beginners to intermediate players as well. If you want to go to directly to the post that helped me out then head over to Golf Accessories Reviews and check out the Best Lady Golf Clubs post. It offers detailed reviews of the best female sets available today!
What’s The Difference Between Lady and Mens Golf Clubs?
If you are looking at getting into golf and pick up your brothers/fathers/uncles/grandfathers or male friends clubs then you might struggle. There are a few reasons for this which I will cover below.
Shaft Material and Weight
The biggest factor is the weight of the clubs, female clubs are significantly lighter than male clubs. This is because women don’t have the same kind of strength as men, no I’m not being sexist here just merely stating the facts. To account for this the material of the shaft for female clubs consists wholly of graphite which is much lighter than steel which is commonly used on male golf clubs.
Lady clubs are a bit shorter than males clubs which can be difficult for the tall female players out there. If you find the right set but they aren’t the right height then you can get them adjusted in your local store, they can lengthen and shorten clubs as you need.
The flex of the shaft is also different for lady clubs, there is a L for ladies which provides quite a lot of spring which you may struggle with at first if you are a complete beginner. There are also ladies clubs with the label A which are less flexible and easier to control. They are both applicable for swing speeds that are less than 80miles per hour – standard for female players.
Which set Do I Recommend for Beginners to Intermediates?
There is a really fantastic set that Callaway have called the Strata, they also have the same set available in mens too. This is quite possibly the best beginner to intermediate players golf set and presents really good value for money.
Which Set did I Buy For My Wife?
I really splashed out for her Christmas present this year and I’m sure she would ask me to return them if she knew the price! But I would say she is more of an advanced social player so I got her the Solaire Gems after reading many reviews! In particular the Callaway Solaire Gems Reviews post on Golf Accessories Reviews! It really gave me the information I needed to purchase this set! We are yet to go for a round but I’m hoping to take her with me next weekend. Let’s see how she goes!
