Left handed golfers simply have less options than right handers. Junior golfers already have limited options, so left-handed juniors really have it tough.
This article is going to be broken down by gender (boy vs girl), size, & budget. Size will be based on height, and budget will be broken down into “highest quality” and less expensive “better value” options.
First, let’s talk about a few topics that will help with our search for the best left handed junior golf clubs for YOUR golfer.
- Left Handed Option: If your junior golfer is left handed, this is obviously going to be the first thing that we look for. We have to make sure that the sets come in a left handed option, which isn’t always the case unfortunately. I’d say roughly 1/3 of junior golf clubs are offered in left and right hand options.
- Brand of the Set: Just like any product, there are lots of brands to choose from. I’d suggest sticking with name brands. Wilson, US Kids Golf, and Callaway are the best junior golf brands for a variety of different reasons.
- Price of the Clubs: The prices for junior golf clubs don’t vary as much as you might think. You can purchase a high quality set of clubs for under $300 pretty easily. Lower quality sets can be bought for roughly half the price.
- Design of the Bag/Clubs: This is important. You want to make sure that your junior golfer LOVES the design of the golf bag and clubs. If your son hates yellow, for example, do NOT get his a yellow set. Sounds obvious, but you want to make sure your junior golf loves his set if you want his to have a good time golfing.
- Height of the Junior & Length of the Clubs: Based on how tall your junior golfer is, they will need a specific length of golf clubs. Juniors grow quickly, so you don’t want to fall behind and get them a set that is too short from the start. My best advice is to get them a set that is one size LARGER than the set that is perfect for them right now. That way, they can get a lot of use out of the set, as opposed to having to upgrade every single year.
Alright, we are done with that thankfully. Now, let’s talk about the best left handed junior golf clubs.
Left Handed Clubs for Junior Boys
Highest Quality: Callaway XJ Junior Boys Golf Clubs
Unfortunately, many of the best junior golf club sets for boys are only offered for right handers. But THANKFULLY, there is one high quality set offered for left handers, and it’s the Callaway XJ Junior Set.
These clubs are literally Callaway’s premium line of golf clubs, but packed into a small club head and small shaft. These clubs will perform just as good as (if not better than) any other boys set on the market.
The Callaway XJ Junior Set comes in four different sizes based on the junior’s height. This is a huge plus, as a “junior” that is 38 inches tall is a whole lot different than a “junior” that is 60 inches tall. This set covers all of your grounds at a fair price and with incredible quality all around.
- Level 1 for juniors 38-46 inches tall (4 clubs total)
- Level 2 for juniors 47-53 inches tall (6 clubs total)
- Level 3 for juniors 54-61 inches tall (7 clubs total)
- Teen Set for juniors 62 inches and taller (10 clubs total)
The Callaway XJ Junior set is actually a unisex set, which is super convenient. That means that this set can be used by your daughter now, your son next, and maybe your granddaughter down the road. That’s the great thing about a high quality set. The clubs are so durable that they can be used in multiple different generations.
Pros: Highest quality clubs when it comes to performance, durability, and resale value. Offered in four different sizes, all of which offer left handed options.
Cons: On the expensive side of clubs for juniors (from $200 to $400 depending on which set level you are getting).
Who It’s Best For: Junior golfers that want a high quality set of clubs that will last them many years without breaking. This set is best for golfers that show lots of interest in the sport, as opposed to those that aren’t sure that golf will be a big hobby of theirs. This set is also perfect for those that expect to have multiple kids that will eventually get some use out of the clubs in the future as hand-me-downs.
Better Value: Ram G-Force Boys Golf Clubs
Ram is a lower cost brand when it comes to complete sets of clubs for juniors. But consider this: junior golfers that are new to the game won’t be able to tell the difference between high end clubs and low end clubs. They just want a cool looking set to show their friends… let’s be real!
So if you want to save some money and still end up with a decent quality set, then the Ram G-Force Boys set is the one for you. This set is only a tad over $100, which is a great deal all things considered.
There are three sizes available with this set:
- Smallest set: 4-6 years or golfers with heights 3ft to 3ft 7in (5 clubs total)
- Middle set: 7-9 years or golfers with heights 3ft 8in to 4ft 5in (6 clubs total)
- Largest set: 10-12 years or golfers with heights 4ft 6in to 5ft 3 in (6 clubs total)
These clubs are definitely NOT as as high quality as the Callaway set. The clubs will break quicker. Oh, and these clubs will not be as long or forgiving. But, again, a kid won’t even notice.
The Ram set is very attractive (in the eyes of a junior golfer), and the price is probably attractive to mom and dad!
Pros: A fraction of the price of the Callaway clubs, and the quality is only a little lower overall. 3 size options for the perfect fit based on height.
Cons: Lower quality all the way around (less distance, less durability, worse feel), but again… what kid golfer will notice?
Who It’s Best For: Boy golfers that like the color blue, and parents that like saving money.
Left Handed Clubs for Junior Girls
Highest Quality: Callaway XJ Hot Girls’ Golf Clubs
Just like for the boys, the Callaway XJ Junior Golf Clubs is the obvious choice when it comes to the best left handed golf clubs for girls. Technically the set that I mentioned in the boys section could be used by girls as well. However, most girls will prefer the “Hot” set of clubs, which comes in purple instead of blue.
There are lots of great golf club sets for junior girls. Unfortunately, they are only offered in right handed varieties! This set is BY FAR the highest quality set of girls golf clubs that left handers can use. However, it comes at a price. A high price.
The Callaway XJ Junior girl’s set is offered in 4 sizes (based on height of your golfer) and therefore 4 different prices:
- The smallest set is about $200
- The medium set is about $300
- The large set is about $400
- The teen set (largest) is about $500.
This set is by far the highest quality clubs for juniors on the market. Great performance. Super forgiving. Super long. And most importantly, super cool looking. Any girl would love to own this set and show it off to their friends. The purple color scheme is very attractive to all ages.
Pros: Simply the best golf clubs for left handed girl golfers that money can buy. Durable set that is very “cool” looking and can be used by multiple girl junior golfers over time.
Cons: Pricey for girls golf clubs.
Who It’s Best For: Girl golfers that want a super high quality, “pretty” set of left handed clubs to show off to their friends.
Better Value: Ram G-Force Girls’ Set
For a little over $100, you simply can’t go wrong with the Ram G Force Girls’ golf club set. Again, everything that a girl needs to play golf, and nothing else.
Like the boys’ set, the girls’ clubs come in three different size options, all of which are available in left handed orientation:
- The smaller set is meant for 4-6 year old golfers, or those that are 3ft to 3ft 7in tall. It’s got 5 total clubs.
- The middle set is meant for 7-9 year old golfers, or those that are 3ft 8in to 4ft 5in tall. It’s got 6 total clubs.
- The larger set is meant for 10-12 year old golfers, or those that are 4ft 6in to 5ft 3in tall. It’s got 6 total clubs.
The green and gray color combination is one that any girl will be proud to show off to her friends. Remember: if they like their clubs, they are far more likely to like the game of golf. And if they like the game of golf, chances are higher that they can pay for their college education 🙂
These clubs are meant to be as easy to hit as possible. While they may not perform quite as well as the Callaway clubs, the difference is negligible, especially for a brand new, young, junior golfer.
Pros: The best bang for your buck when you are buying golf clubs for a junior girl golfer. Available in three different sizes, all of which are offered for left handed golfers, too!
Cons: May not last as long as higher quality clubs, but a girl golfer isn’t likely to break any club heads anyway.
Who It’s Best For: Girl golfers that are brand new to the game and have parents on a tighter budget.
