These days, there are a lot of women playing golf. Even though the overall number of golf players is decreasing, i’ve heard that number of women golfers is actually going up. Which is great news of course, but one problem is that there are, or at least used to be, limited options for women when it came to buying golf clubs. That problem is no longer relevant, at least not to the extent it used to be. Golf club manufacturers have finally realized what kind of force lady golfers are and have started making some great clubs for women. This tutorial is dedicated to that and is supposed to help you figure out ins and outs of choosing golf clubs as a woman. The difference between men’s and women’s clubs is very small. Mostly it revolves around the fact that men, on average, are taller and have longer hands than women. So their clubs have to be longer too. There are other minor differences as well. For example, almost all experts agree that women’s golf clubs should be as light as possible.
One of the best golf club sets for women, in my opinion, is Callaway Strata Series, especially the Ultimate set from that series. It includes everything a lady golfer might need – from headcovers to golf clubs. I think it includes around 11 or 12 clubs, which is more than enough for any casual or even professional golfer. If you know how to use these clubs right, they will allow you to achieve great results on the course. The problem is, a lot of people don’t know how to use them, and expect golf clubs to fix their problems on their own, which is just unrealistic. That’s why i always recommend to beginners, male as well as female, to take at least few lessons in the beginning. Instructor can be a great help when you’re total beginner.
One of my other rules for buying golf clubs as a woman is that if you’re a beginner, you shouldn’t pay more than five hundred dollars. As a high handicapper, you won’t get to utilize potential of high end golf clubs anyway, so the money spent on them will go to waste. Plus, you might not even like golf, and you shouldn’t spend thousands before testing waters properly. Then again, people are different and some of them aren’t concerned about their budgets. If you’re one of those people, i guess it’s okay to get started with whatever club set you like. If expensive club set is what you’re after, i would recommend checking out TaylorMade kalea set.

On the other hand, if you’re a lady and have especially tight budget for golf clubs, there are few routes you can take. One of them is buying entire set of clubs at once. That can be great money-saver because sets of clubs are often heavily discounted. The other, and in my opinion much better to save money on the clubs, is to buy them in slightly used condition. I’ve seen many listings on eBay and Craigslist for golf clubs in pristine condition, and they cost half of the retail price, or sometimes even less. But shopping on eBay and Craigslist requires experience too, you need to know how to avoid fake golf clubs and bad sellers.
