Most recreational golfers have a handicap somewhere between 15 and 25. If you are on the high end of this range which clubs are best for your game? There are several golf club makers who focus on the woman’s golf game.
Here are three manufacturers you might consider looking at:
Do you need new clubs? Maybe. Answer these questions:
- Do you play regularly? (At least once a week?)
- Is your score always just a little short of what you think you can make?
- Do you take a lesson or two each season but still don’t improve?
It may not be your game, it might be your equipment. If that 3 wood of yours causes you nothing but trouble, but all the other clubs work well for you, maybe it’s time to check out a new 3 wood.
What to look for? 25 handicappers need a forgiving club with a large “sweet spot” that allows for some “misshits” – (That’s miss hits – though you would be forgiven if you read the word a different way! :-)) Most golfers with a handicap in this range do better with a flexible shaft on their clubs, and a graphite shaft rather than steel is preferred. Graphite is lighter and more flexible.
Of course, we don’t recommend you just buy off the rack. You can do that of course, but if you’re going to spend money on new clubs, it’s always a smart idea to get fitted by a professional or visit a well equipped golf store that has the correct equipment to measure your golf swing speed.
Here’s a short video that explains some of the key points you need to consider when getting fitted for clubs.

If it’s the off season where you are, now is a good time to shop around, test different clubs, see which works best for you and if you can, ask the golf shop if you can borrow a demonstration club to use at an indoor golf simulator facility. Not only will you discover your next great club, but you’ll keep up your golf swing and stay ready for the first round of the coming season. (Read our post on golf simulators for more information on the indoor game.)
Bottom Line: Which are the best clubs for a handicap of 25? The answer is, which ever clubs work for your game.
