It completely depends. Are you a lady golfer, or a junior golfer or are you a male golfer? If you are a lady golfer, I would still recommend ladies clubs, this is because you will need a quicker swing speed and need to be quite strong to use mens clubs, and using them may hurt your game instead of improving. If you are a junior golfer you have two choices, either get a set of ladies clubs and use them for a while until you grow out of them, or get a set custom fit. You will probably need an inch or two taken off them depending on how high/ low you hold you hands. You will of course grow out of these, and you could get them extended and bent when you do. If you are a fully grown male, then yes, you probably should use mens' clubs, again custom fitting is your best option and will hopefully help your game.

Im 5ft 2in do you need mens golf clubs?

You could use mens' clubs, but the best thing to do is to go and get custom fit. This way they can find the ideal length of club for you, maybe mens' clubs with a couple of inches taken off them. It depends how old you are, if you are still growing i wouldn't advise custom fitting, maybe just a second hand set of clubs which you could get cut down.

What is a half set of golf clubs?

Well a full set of golf clubs has 14 clubs but a half set usually only has 7 clubs. I would recommend half sets to beginners in the sport golf because when starting out you only need to use the basic clubs: driver, irons and putter. But when you get ore experienced at golf you should mive up to full sets where they have more of a variety of irons and woods and wedges. I hope this helps :-)
