Question: Are There Differences, Besides Cosmetics, in Men's and Women's Golf Clubs?
Answer: Typically, most women's clubs will be made one inch shorter in length for each club, and may be designed with more loft on the face than men's clubs.

In addition, the shafts installed in women's clubs are more flexible than the shafts in men's clubs.

Finally, these differences most typically seen on standard-made clubs bought off-the-rack are implemented because companies assume that all women golfers have slower swing speeds and are less athletically inclined than men.
