You have a keen interested in golf, but don’t want to spend hours looking around for your first set of reliable golf clubs. There are many to choose from, and if you’re looking for quality at an affordable price, here is a review on the Callaway Strata Golf Set.
The Callaway Strata Golf set comes in a few types, but here is a review on the bottom end and also the best set.
Callaway Strata Golf 12 Piece Set
This is the perfect set of golf clubs if you are just beginning, and don’t want to spend too much money, but still want something decent.
The set comes with everything you need to start out. Callaway is generally one of the leaders in Game Improvement so these clubs are actually quite forgiving and easy to use.
Driver – The driver is 460 cubic centimetres in volume which is the limit in which companies can make drivers. Because of the large head, it is easy to strike the golf ball but don’t get too excited, if you don’t practice you will still slice the ball into somebody’s public barbecue on the odd occasion. (Hey, It happens.)
Fairway Wood – A fairway wood is always handy, and this one has 15.5 degrees of loft on it so launching it in the air should be no issue.
Hybrid – This set features a low centre of gravity easy to use 5 Hybrid Club. These have become popular over the years because they are more consistent than a long iron.
Irons – You get five irons in this set that start from 6 iron through to pitching wedge. They are also stainless steel so you should get decent durability and performance.
Putter – Now I will not lie to you, the putter in this one is pretty basic. If all you are looking for is a hack around with mates it will do the job. It does feature a decent alignment aid on it for all those short putts.
Bag – The bag is a simple stand bag, but you can carry this one anywhere. It has five decent pockets for your golf accessories, and a cooler pocket so you can even sneak on a beer.
This set is also available in both right and left-handed.

Callaway Strata Tour Set
The Callaway Strata Tour set is a little better quality, and is more durable than the 12 piece set. If you are a beginner and have a bit of spare cash to spend you will not only be getting some better quality and performance from this set, but also a few more golf clubs to utilise. This set is also available in two shaft options. Regular flex will accommodate most swing speeds, whilst for the golfers that swing the golf club a little faster, the stiffer low torque shaft option is also available.
Unfortunately this set is only available in right handed so apologies to all those lefties.
Driver – The Driver in this set is still 460cc, but it is lighter and also has less loft on it compared to the 12 piece set. This will give you more distance on a well-struck golf shot.
Fairway Woods – Unlike the previous set this one includes both a 3 and 5 wood. This will be of benefit as your game improves for distance gapping.
Hybrid Clubs – Another great bonus with this set is the 4 and 5 hybrid clubs. These are perfect for beginners and feature a lower centre of gravity and a larger sweet spot.
Irons – Same setup as the other set with a 6 iron through to pitching wedge. These are also stainless steel, so fantastic for durability. They are also a step up in performance from the previous set.
Putter – Once again I am not going to lie about the putter…..it ain’t anything special but will get the job done. Rarely does a beginner ever practice putting anyway. Handy Tip – If you want to improve your putting and beat your buddies you should probably work on putting. Here is a link to some basic putting lessons.
Bag– Once again we have ourselves a stand bag in this one. The bag is also a bit more sizeable than the previous set, and also has that all important drink pocket for all those beers or waters you might be consuming.
The main difference between these two sets is the quality and the tour set does feature four more clubs which you will need later on when fast improvements are made.
