And as we say, a dream for any newbie out on the course...

This set will take away any apprehension you have about having the right equipment. 

Get this deal and you're (golf) set!

No joke intended 🙂

Fortunately for you, this is literally everything you need from a club set as a beginner to hit the course for the first time and ENJOY every minute!

Build Material

Since you'll be striking a ball over and over again with these clubs, you can't overlook the robustness of the materials used.

Not to mention the fact you'll probably be somewhat rough and ready handling the clubs as you're a beginner.

The Callaway Strata set takes all that worry away from you because of the excellent materials used.

Nothing but Titanium is used to manufacture the whole of the driver - titanium will provide you with all the durability you need (they build aeroplanes out of that stuff!)

As well as this, the irons are made from stainless steel which gives you both a smooth and strong experience.

These clubs have got you covered!

The Clubs 

Without any further delay, let's talk about the clubs that are going to make your golf game a whole heap more fun!


As you already know, there are 18 clubs included in this set and we will be discussing most of them in detail now...

The Incredible Driver

The completely titanium driver provides you with a control and strength that only titanium is capable of providing.

With a 12-degree loft, it helps your balls flying straighter and longer.


On top of this, the drivers shaft length of 45 inches helps you generate great club head power to send your ball flying down the fairway toward the hole!

The Driver also features a large sweet spot so even a mishit shot won’t cost you a lot on the course.

So, believe us, with this drive it won't be long until you're winning the trophy for the longest drive competition.

Just keep working on those swings and this Driver will take care of the rest!

Callaway 1

The 3 Wood

The 3 wood is designed with a 15.5 degree loft and 42.5 inch shaft length in order to help you hit your balls on the green more often.

You won't be missing the greens anymore, you'll be on them!

Right on the dance floor!

Your balls will be flying over the middle of the fairway trees and bunkers due to the impact created on the ball by the woods aerodynamic head-shape.

Callaway 2

The 5 Wood

Now, this features an 18 degree loft and a 41.5 inch length that won’t get your ball as far as the 3-wood will.

This club will still generate a great amount of control and distance, so you'll always be confident of hitting your target.

As well as this, it also has an aerodynamic head shape to make your balls fly high and long!

We just love high and long! You'll be smashing that ball straight down the middle in no time!

Callaway 3

The 4 Hybrid Club

Irons can be quite a challenge to play with, especially for beginners....

Maybe you're finding that already uh?


Well, it's ok because now we've found the club to help you!

So, this bag includes two hybrids to makes you feel more confident and in control of your golf game.

The first is the 4 hybrid club with a 22 degree loft and 38.5 inch length.

So, you can make your golf balls fly high and shape your shots just like with irons while also seeing the great distance you get from hitting with woods.

All in all, it's safe to say hybrids are just easier to hit. We promise you're going to be sooo happy the first time you hit with one of these hybrids, they turn the game to easy (ier) mode!

Callaway 4

The 5 Hybrid

This is another masterpiece of a club because you get the benefits of both a wood and an iron all wrapped up into one club. You will get the perfect accuracy you need with its 26-degree loft and 37.75-inch length.

So, you can replace your difficult iron shots with the 5-hybrid anytime you feel the need to.

6 Iron

This stainless steel iron of 37-inch length gives you the perfect distance you want to cover for that particular distance shot.

And, you can stay relaxed while swinging as well because we found that the irons in this set really give you confidence standing over the ball before you strike!

7 Iron

This iron club gives with everything you expect from a 7 Iron....and more!

With a loft of 34 degrees and a length of 36.5-inch, you can use it any way you want.

Whether you want a high shot to avoid a bunker, or a low shot to avoid hitting into trees, this iron makes it all easy.

This club is just great for those punchy shots you need on a windy day on the links!

8 Iron

This club has the perfect loft of 38-degrees and a length of 36-inch for a men’s 8 iron. You can expect a high shot that goes a distance lower than the 7-iron or a low shot that does the same. 

This iron makes your game much more versatile, giving you the flexibility to shape and control your shots as you become more of a competent golfer.

9 Iron

When you can neither take the risk of falling short with a pitching wedge or have the risk of hitting too far with an 8-iron, 9-iron becomes the best option.

We know this 9 iron will deliver for you on course.

With a loft of 42 degree and length of 35.5-inch, it provides you the distance and angle that you need for the not-so-short shots, but not the long ones either (under 120 yards from the pin).

This club lets you play safe and also take risks when necessary.

Pitching Wedge

This is basically one of the clubs you just cannot do without on the course.

It's just perfect for getting your ball from the fairway to green or away from hazards to the fairway - this wedge saves you from almost any trouble.

But saying this, playing the wrong shot with the club may also get you in trouble!

Saying this, the Callaway Strata offers perfection with its 46-degree lofted, 35-inch pitcher for you to excel at your short game play.

This club is a joy to play with!

You can even get the ball in the hole with the perfect short wedge shot if you try hard enough!

Sand Wedge

Sand bunkers are one of the most difficult things to deal with in the game of golf.

Thankfully, the sand wedge in this set really makes the process of getting your ball out of a bunker easier.

With its fly trajectory flight capabilities and a loft angle of 56 degrees and a length of 35-inch, it can get your ball out of the bunker and firmly on to the safety of the green.

The angle of the club face helps your ball to stop dead on the green, reducing the amount of bounce on your ball when it hits the green so you can have great confidence when you use it for the right short game shot.


There's a famous phrase in golf that you may have heard of:

"Drive for show, putt for dough!"

We love this phrase because it tells you how important it is to putt well, and also have a putter that works well with your style. You can hit the ball 500 yards off the tee, but if you can't putt well. Hey, you won't score so well on the golf course!

(Ps if you can hit the ball 500 yards you are incredible!!!)

Let's be honest though, unless you are Tiger Woods you can't play golf without a putter!

The angle and length are particularly important in the case of the putter. The Callaway putter has a loft of 3.5-degree and length of 35-inch.

This putter is great for both long and short putts!
