Best Women's Golf Set

Best Women's Golf Set

 Looking for the best women’s golf clubs but unsure where to start?

As golf continues to gain popularity, there are now more options for men, women and juniors than ever before. Although it’s great to have so many choices, it’s also easy to feel overwhelmed when shopping for new clubs, especially if you’re new to golf.

That’s why we thought we’d offer a few tips and tricks to make it easier for you to buy the best women’s golf set. 

How to choose a set of golf clubs

Instead of jumping in two feet first and choosing the first set of golf clubs you lay your eyes on, there are a couple of things you need to look out for – simple things like the price tag and what’s included in the set.

Here are 6 key factors to consider when shopping for women’s golf clubs

1.    Forgiveness

For the most part, amateur golfers are better opting for clubs that are extremely forgiving and light, rather than clubs that are overly heavy and not forgiving.

Another thing worth noting is, the larger the sweet spot, the better your mishits will be, helping to lower your scores on the course. 

2.    Brand

It might not seem like a big deal, but most golfers have a brand preference these days, and it’s well worth factoring this into your decision when buying women’s golf clubs.

If you only play occasionally, you probably don’t need a high-end brand like Callaway or Ping. However, if you plan on playing more often, investing in a set of clubs that will serve you as you improve, is a smart move. This way, you won’t need to upgrade them as frequently and can really get used to them. 

3.    Shaft type

So many male and female golfers make the mistake of using clubs with shafts that are too heavy and stiff. This only makes it difficult for them to generate the swing they need to propel the ball.

An ideal women’s golf set will include clubs that have a light shaft, ideally a ladies’ flex shaft. These are significantly lighter and easier to swing. Most ladies’ clubs have graphite shafts that will match the flex. 

4.    Number and type of golf clubs

When purchasing a set of ladies’ golf clubs, be mindful that some sets only come with 8-10 clubs whilst others have 14 (the maximum number of clubs you can take onto the course).

If you’re just starting out, you won’t necessarily need a full set. But if you’re a seasoned golfer and play regularly, a women’s set of 12-14 clubs will come in handy.

As a general rule of thumb, your bag should consist of a driver, various woods/hybrids, several irons, 1 or 2 wedges and a putter. 

5.    Golf bag and accessories

After deciding which clubs you need and how many of each, the next thing to think about is how you’ll transport them across the links. Does the package set come with a cart bag or will you need to buy one separately?

When compared to stand bags, cart bags are generally much larger and have a dual strap that enables you to carry the bag and your kit without putting too much strain on your back and shoulders.

If the set includes a cart bag, it’s worth checking which accessories you’ll need to ensure your bag doesn’t slide off midway through the round. 

6.    Price

Perhaps one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a ladies’ golf set is how much it costs.

Premium brands, such as Callaway, Motocaddy and Sun Mountain, are likely to cost more – but they usually last a bit longer than their cheaper counterparts, allowing you to get loads of use out of them.

The more technology the clubs incorporate, the more forgiving they will be, and this can also be reflected in the overall price.

Our best advice is to set yourself a realistic budget and stick to it. Do your online research and, if you’re struggling to make a decision, ask for advice.
