Callaway Solaire Vs Cleveland Bloom – What’s The Better Golf Club Set?
All too often, manufacturers make ladies golf clubs with aesthetics in mind but not performance. That’s why when you search for ladies golf clubs online, you see a lot of pretty clubs but once you get them out on the course or the range, they are nearly worthless.
The truth of the matter is that women are just as serious about developing their game as men are (and in many cases much more serious). But there definitely seems to be very few quality clubs for women outside of premium grade tour level clubs for pros.
So we did our research, looked high and low and wouldn’t you know it? We found more than one set of ladies golf clubs that our testers really liked. This presented us with a unique problem: which one are we going to present to our readers?
We soon realized that this is the sort of problem you want to have. We were pleasantly surprised to find 2 sets of ladies golf clubs that our testers raved about so why just choose one? Take a look at our comparison review of 2 of the best golf club sets for ladies.
The Callaway Solaire and the Cleveland Bloom
Another problem that you may have noticed if you have ever shopped for a set of women’s golf clubs is that there are plenty of beginner sets to choose from but very little for burgeoning players. So right off the bat, we were pleased to note that both these club sets are designed for intermediate-advanced players.
The Callaway Solaire and Cleveland Bloom golf club sets are perfect whether you are leveling up from a beginner’s set or want advanced features to help take your game higher. The Callaway Solaire clubs were built for speed and distance.
The Cleveland Bloom clubs are very forgiving and lightweight. They also feature cavity-back irons and Cleveland HiBore technology throughout the set. The Callaway Solaire clubs feature steel shafts and afford excellent ball flight almost effortlessly.
And while these observations are important to note, they are more or less our first impressions of the clubs. Let’s get into more detail about what both of these sets have to offer.
What’s Included in the Cleveland Bloom Set
In the Cleveland Bloom complete women’s golf set you get a driver, 3 wood, 5 hybrid, 6 hybrid, 7-SW irons and a mallet-shaped putter. The set also comes with a premium cart bag with plenty of storage space and an attractive design.

The Cleveland Bloom Clubs
One of the most important things to note about the composition of these clubs is that they all come with graphite shafts except for the putter.
As such, you get pretty predictable flex out of them – not too much that it makes ball speed unpredictable but not so little that you lose out on feel. They all come with very comfortable grips that aren’t too thick or too thin.
That’s important because if they are too thin, long drives and fairway shots might actually sting. And if they are too thick, they might not fit in your bag. But as far as our testers could tell, the grips were comfortable and convenient.
The Callaway Solaire Clubs
The driver in the Callaway Solaire gives 13 degrees of loft which is pretty generous and the rear weighting helps increase forgiveness on off-center shots. The 3 wood is set to 18 degrees and the 5H and 6H are set to 24 and 29 degrees respectively.
What we’re driving at here (no pun intended) is that the Callaway Solaire golf clubs cover the distances on the course very well – all the way up to the wedges. They are available in steel shaft designs set to normal ladies flex.
So while the learning curve for the Callaway Solaire clubs may be a bit steeper than the Cleveland Bloom’s, they will definitely fit in better with players with plenty of experience under their belt.
Both drivers were very forgiving off the tee. The Back weighting and low center of gravity of the Callaway Solaire driver made it very easy to hit with while the graphite shaft of the Cleveland Bloom driver allowed for tremendous ball speed.
We really liked the way the Callaway Solaire irons covered distance gaps on the fairway. The cavity back design of the Cleveland Bloom irons felt really nice and overall, the wide sole design of the wedges outperformed the wedges of the Callaway Solaire by providing more spin control.
Again, this one has to go to the Cleveland Blooms. Their irons and wedges are a dream for approaches as they allow for more spin control than you would expect from a set in this price range.
The Callaway Solaire has a really easy mallet-style putter with alignment marks that make long putts smooth. The Bloom putter features perimeter weighting which makes it feel very-well balanced on strokes as well but overall the Callaway Solaire putter felt better.
Durability & Value
Both of these club sets were designed very well but the Callaway Solaire seem like they will last longer and deliver more value in the long-run.
For the Callaway Solaire you can expect to pay anywhere from about $1,000-$1,300. The Cleveland Bloom clubs are more in the $700 range.
Which are Better?
If you feel your game is more advanced, we would recommend going with the Callaway Solaire clubs. But if you are in the intermediate level, the Cleveland Bloom clubs would probably work best for you. But in reality, you can’t go wrong with either of these ladies golf club sets so check them out soon!
