Best Women’s Golf Books

The women’s game of golf, largely led by Michelle Wie and Nelly Korda, has seen a recent uptick in popularity. With more and more golf clubs seeing an influx of women players, newer market and industry products, services, and equipment is being made to accommodate female players.

And while the overall mechanics and rules of the game remain the same, regardless of gender, certain pieces of equipment are manufactured to account for women’s shorter height and frame, as compared to their male counterparts.

Similarly, in researching swing mechanics, researchers found that female golfers were more likely to injure themselves nearer towards the wrist and elbow. As such, shorter frame and lighter golf clubs have been introduced to help reduce the overall incidence of injury.

And whether you’re a new player of the game or are looking to play more efficiently, these best women’s golf books will help female players of all experiences, ages, and abilities to better perform on the green.

The Women’s Guide to Golf: A Handbook for Beginners

Throughout her teaching career, Kellie Stenzel has been continually asked to recommend a beginning golf instruction book for her female students to read. She researched the market and found nothing suitable–most books are too technical for the beginner and assume that the reader already has some familiarity with the game. This became the inspiration for The Women’s Guide to Golf, a well-crafted and easy-to-understand golf instructional for women who are new to the game.

Each section of the book provides a complete explanation of the skills needed to play golf. Ideas are presented in a clear and simple manner–golf lingo is translated into every-day English whenever possible so the reader can easily understand. Since students must have an idea of what they are trying to accomplish before they can learn, Kellie Stenzel starts at the very beginning and gives detailed explanations of basic concepts. For example, she explains what a putter looks like, what a putting green looks like, and what the goal of putting is, before teaching the reader how to putt. In addition, since women’s learning style is very different from men’s, this book also addresses specific women’s issues, such as posture and lack of distance.
