Types of Golf Clubs

Golf Drivers

The driver is the largest club of the set with a head size typically of 460 cc in volume, with lofts ranging from 8-12 degrees generally. This would generally be the club of choice when teeing off on the longer holes on the course (PAR 4 and PAR 5).

Having the longest shaft of all the clubs in the bag, it generates the fasted clubhead speed, combined with lowest loft on the face; this will produce your longest shots.

Due to the nature of the club design, this will almost always be played off tee peg to raise the ball height up, allowing the player to strike up into the back of the ball for this shot type.

Golf Fairways

Fairway woods are the middle sized clubs in the wood range and come in various loft options. Their name comes from the fact that the heads historically were constructed from wood. Currently, these are made from modern materials such as carbon fibre, titanium, and various types of plastics/metals.

Fairway woods are very similar in appearance to a driver; however it has a much smaller head. Its shaft is also a bit shorter than the driver, with its main purpose being to play the ball from the ‘fairway’ or even the light rough.

Some players may select to tee off with a fairway wood on occasion over the driver if the whole length or shape dictates a certain distance or shot shape.  As the fairway wood has higher loft than the driver, it is easier to keep straight in general.

Golf Hybrids

Hybrids, also called rescue clubs, are the smallest golf clubs from the wood range.  These clubs are positioned to fill the gap between your chosen ‘fairway woods’ and the start of the iron set.

They are designed in principle to be played from fairway, light rough or more troublesome areas, hence the name ‘rescue’.  Many golfers would choose to use hybrid clubs in place of long irons (3i or 4i) as they are easier to hit, more forgiving and in general will produce a higher and longer flight for the player.

As with the fairway wood range, hybrids are available in a wide range of lofts, allowing specific distances to be achieved.

Golf Iron Sets

Again, named after the material from which they were once made, modern irons are constructed from a number of metal materials and made using a variety of construction processes. Iron sets come in both steel and graphite shaft options, and depending on the player’s ability, swing characteristics and desired flight, they may opt to play either of these shaft types.

Irons in most cases range from 4iron through to pitching wedge or gap wedge.  Lofts of these depend on specific manufacturer specs for each set.  This element of the setup is the most customisable for player, with loft, lie, shaft flex, length and weight all factors in producing the best results.

Golf Wedges

Wedges could really be considered part of the iron set, as they are made up of similar head and shaft combinations.  However, wedges come in a variety of loft, bounce and grind options to allow a player to select their exact requirements.  Ranging in general from 48 degrees up to 64 degrees, a player would select the club based on the distance required to clear.

  • 48-54 degrees would normally be referred to as ‘pitching, approach or gap wedges’
  • 55-58 degrees usually being referred to as ‘sand wedges’
  • 60-64 degrees would be known mainly as ‘lob wedges’

Rule of thumb being the higher the degree of face angle, the higher the ball trajectory and shorter the carry distance achieved.

Golf Putters

Putters are used to play on or around the green area.  This would be one of the most personal clubs in the bag, as many factors need to be considered. Ultimately, it’s the most used club in the bag and therefore a player must feel comfortable and confident with the putter to achieve best results.  Conventional putters range from 33 inch to 35 inch in most cases, and the suitable length is dependent on a player’s height and posture over the ball.   There are many factors to consider from head shape, weight, neck type to degree of ‘toe hang’ which a player should consider for the best performance.  This would be the most ‘feel’ based club in the bag, and often it’s about what a golfer feels most confident using.

Golf Complete Sets

These are really designed for golfers who are new to the game.  These sets come with everything required to get going, and generally come with a full selection of woods, irons, putter and even the bag.  This is a much more cost-effective way of getting started as the price point of this type of set is considerably cheaper than putting a set together from top brand items and new product ranges.
