The Best Fairway Woods

The Best Fairway Woods

Customization of your golf club set can be an exciting and challenging adventure. If you’ve already taken the first step to purchase a nice driver, the next step to completing your customized set is to find one or two of the best fairway woods. These clubs are less expensive than drivers, but the technology used to make some of the best fairway woods ever is nothing short of intricate.

The Fairway Wood clubs are the 3 & 5, we also included some 7 Wood clubs in our list because manufacturers sometimes classify and design all three of them together. A 7 wood is often referred to as an utility wood.

Best Fairway Wood For Your Money

Many of the clubs that made our best of list have many configurations to choose from. TaylorMade fairway woods, and Callaway fairway woods are frequently designed to come as 3 woods, 5 woods, and 7 wood golf clubs. Within those head sizes is also the ability to customize lofts and flexibility of the shaft.

Some of the fairway woods that are highly rated aren’t as detailed with customization, but they will be perfect for anyone who knows what they need without the fuss. Check out each of the fairway wood reviews for more information, and have fun shopping!

The Carbon composite crown on these Fairway Woods help create the best launch and spin. The combinations of configuration, especially with the flex options, are nearly endless.

This edition of the AeroBurner has very high consumer ratings because of how smooth the swing is. The aerodynamics creates so much less drag you will feel like there’s hardly any gravity around you. It’s also constructed with the highest strength material on the face which is going to give your stroke some extra power.

3. Callaway Men’s Big Bertha Alpha 815 Fairway Wood

  • Lofts: 14, 16, 18
  • Material: Graphite
  • Flex: Regular, Stiff

It made our list for drivers, so it was a no brainer for our Fairway Wood reviews as well. The adjustable weight gives you less in spin in the forward position, and a whole heck of a lot more forgiveness in the back. The Callaway Big Bertha 815 comes with a few different configurations that you can select from- choose wisely! There are a few other editions of the Big Bertha Fairway Wood on the market that you could find with some digging, but this one is our favorite.

4. Adams Golf Tight Lies Fairway Wood

  • Lofts: 14, 16, 19, 22
  • Shaft: Graphite
  • Flex: Regular, Senior, Stiff

Adams is a lesser known brand, but not by avid amateur golfers. This wood is a great choice for the every day player, and can be customized to your individual needs. It will perform well for you on the fairway, and in the rough which is key for those who haven’t had success with irons at further distances. We recommend this fairway wood for beginners or those who are looking into hybrid clubs but would prefer something more traditional.

5. Titleist Mens 915 Fairway

  • Loft: 15
  • Shaft: Diamana S+
  • Flex: Regular
  • A long and high shot will be provided by this Titleist model, as well as a decent amount of forgiveness. The model we’ve linked to is only available in a 15degree loft and regular flex- but there are a few other configurations out there. This is the most common combination for this edition.

6. Lady Cobra Golf FLY-Z XL 5 Fairway Wood

Cobra is notorious for their sweet club sets, and their lady clubs are some of the best available. The FLY-Z XL is one of top rated fairway woods amongst men or women clubs. The center of gravity is in the back, which makes it easy to swing and very forgiving. You will easily hit balls on the fairway, rough, or even off the tee with this club.
