With more and more women carrying more and more hybrids in their golf bags, we pick out the best golf hybrids for your game.
The hybrid, also known as a utility or rescue club, is one of the most invaluable golf clubs a lady golfer can carry in her bag. The very fact that this clever club is known by so many different names illustrates its versatility. From recovering from the rough to taking on a tight tee shot, sending a ball soaring high and landing softly into a long par three, or even as a handy tool to play a little chip-and-run around the greens, there’s no end to the shot-making creativity of the best ladies’ hybrid golf clubs.
Hybrids are not just for beginner or intermediate golfers, either. Hybrids are a firm favourite on tour because they are incredibly forgiving and easy to use. In fact, many world-class lady professional golfers carry a full complement of hybrids instead of harder-to-hit long irons. Many women choose to use hybrid clubs instead of 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-irons.

Lofts: 22° (4), 25° (5), 28° (6), 31° (7)
Stock shaft: Aldila NV Ladies 45 (L)
Stock grip: Lamkin Ladies Sonar 38g 0.580 round
The popularity of the SIM 2 Max hybrid on the Ladies’ European Tour speaks volumes for the quality of this superb rescue club. It has a sleeker appearance than its predecessor, catering for the lady golfer who wants a club that will offer a seamless transition from their irons through to their woods.
The compact clubhead shape will particularly appeal to the stronger player who likes to shape shots with iron-like workability, while the lower centre of gravity position ensures added forgiveness even when you don’t hit the centre of the face, with an effortless high launch producing the ideal ‘rainbow shape’ distance-enhancing ball flight.
Cleveland Launcher Halo HR Ladies’ Hybrid
Lofts: 22° (4), 19° (3), 16°(2)
Stock shaft: Miyazaki C. Kua 40 / 49.5gr / High
Stock grip: Women’s Lamkin 360
Gliderail technology is by no means new to hybrids but in its latest form here in the Cleveland Launcher Halo it promises to make recovery shots easier than you ever imagined possible.
The set of three distinct rails on the sole help the Halo to literally glide effortlessly through the turf thanks to their clever geometric shape, preventing speed from being lost during turf interaction.
A high-strength steel face allows the ball to fire powerfully from a larger impact area, which increases ball speed, so you’ll see some nice distance gains.
The sleek black crown finish looks like the sheen of a plush sports car and will appeal to the lady who loves her brand names.

Wilson Staff D9 Ladies’ Hybrid
RRP: £159 | VIEW OFFER
Lofts: 22°, 25°, 28°
Stock shaft: Quaranta Blue
Stock grip: Lamkin Crossline Genesis
When designing the new D9 line of clubs, Wilson Staff’s aim was to give all golfers confidence on any course. The Wilson D9 hybrids achieve this with a progressive head shape that increases in size as you go through the set, offering maximum ease-of-use on those hardest-to-hit longer shots. This also allows for ideal distance-gapping through your set.
The Wilson D9 ladies’ hybrid is perfectly weighted to sit square at address, which makes it easy to aim. It also provides a high ball speed that will not only launch the ball a long way, but thanks to variable face technology, keep it straighter down the middle even on those less-than-perfect hits.
RRP: £229 | VIEW OFFER
Lofts: 24°, 27°, 30°, 33°, 36°
Stock shaft: Callaway designed RCH hybrid shaft 40g (LL) / 45g (WMS)
Stock grip: Lamkin Comfort ST soft
Callaway claim to be able to ‘unlock your inner distance’ no matter what standard of player you are, thanks to the innovative design of the Big Bertha Reva hybrid.
They used Artificial Intelligence to design the Flash Face and JailBreak technology – a concept that cleverly connects the sole to the crown. It’s Callaway’s way of ridding those awful mishits that traditionally spin off line. Added offset will help you square the club at impact and reduce the dreaded slice spin, creating longer and straighter shots. We think that’s a winning formula.
Honma GS UT Ladies’ Hybrid
RRP: £249 | VIEW OFFER
Lofts: 21°, 24°, 27°
Stock grip: Honma rubber 37 GY / WH
Stock shaft: Speed Tuned 42 UT graphite
At the premium end of the market, Honma offers something very special to the discerning lady golfer willing to invest in her game. World-class construction alongside expensive components equals a club that oozes quality.
The Honma GS UT hybrid carries the same crank slot sole as its driver counterpart, shaped to help maintain fast ball speeds across the face, reducing loss of distance on off-centre hits. It features a slight draw-bias design, thanks to the weight being repositioned from the heel to the rear of the club head, which will help you if you suffer with a slice and improve ball flight launch trajectory across the board, meaning you’ll experience exceptionally straight distance.
