The Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver Review was a whole lot of fun and one thing is for certain. Callaway have revived the ever popular Great Big Bertha adding a necessary modern twist and now provided us with something very exciting… to say the least.
We reviewed the Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver as part of our Best Drivers 2016 Review.
Callaway have taken a simple looking club and made it into an attractive, sexy, cutting edge driver. They have undoubtedly been industry leaders in terms of the driver for a number of years now. The revised Great Big Bertha has introduced the R-MOTO face design which has increased the sweet spot and thus improved the distance of off-center hits.
Absolutely unique and unbelievable sound that arises when striking it in the center. So much so that when we tested it we couldn’t help but turn heads to one another and stare in surprise – the hang time is incredible.

Callaway have been an industry leader in the driver market for decades now and this updated version of the Great Big Bertha sums that fact up in a nutshell. Superb offering from Callaway and must say a stunning sexy piece as well. Exceptionally long and a sliding weight system on the sole to promote either a draw or fade bias. Very forgiving for the slightly higher handicap player too subsequently bringing in a wide scope of suitable player. What a world class driver this is and the Best Seller title isn't there for no reason. Just plain quality!
Pros and Cons
- Simplistically beautiful club-head that will have your playing partners ogling all-round long!
- Unbelievably good sound at impact with healthy feedback
- Wow is this thing LONG! And has the ability to adjust weight settings in order to adapt to your swing and ball flight characteristics
- Could potentially confuse the average golfer into which weight setting is best
Design & Appearance
Personally the idea of a deeper head sits very well in my mind – the deeper the face the purer the launch angle and penetration. Just psychologically feel like the shallow face will balloon the ball more often than not. Callaway have taken a simple looking club and made it into an attractive, sexy, cutting edge driver that will leave all your playing partners ogling if they haven’t already got one.
The matte black roundish head at address has the toe sitting slightly off the ground due to the deep clubhead. All-in-all it is simply beautiful.
Once again, Callaway have always been known for one club in particular. The driver. They have been industry leaders for some time and that won’t be going away anytime soon. With the new Great Big Bertha, Callaway have introduced the R-MOTO face design which has increased the sweet spot and thus improved the distance of off-center hits.
An adjustable sliding weight on the underside offers a simplistic choice for the average golfer. It allows you to basically shift from a fade ball flight to a draw in a matter of seconds.
Control / Feel
Wow!! That is all we can say regarding the feel and particularly the sound at impact. Absolutely unique! An unbelievable sound that arises when striking it in the center. So much so that when we tested it we couldn’t help but turn heads to one another and stare in surprise.
Particularly good feedback at impact, it really feels like the ball has been parted with maximum velocity and ideal spin rate when hitting this driver.
Superb offering from Callaway and must say a stunning sexy piece as well. Exceptionally long and a sliding weight system on the sole to promote either a draw or fade bias. Also very forgiving for the slightly higher handicap player, what a world class driver this is.
Outstanding distance, superb forgiveness and the ability to adjust weight settings in order to adapt to your swing and ball flight characteristics. That being said though it may leave you in constant search of the correct setting for you personally.
Because the option is there to adjust after each round, you most likely will adjust very often. The ‘olden day’ drivers you HAD to adapt to over a short period because of no customization. You had to learn how to hit them well. So if you are prepared to be disciplined and stick to your initial favored setting you are going to really enjoy this driver.
Value for Money
Another winner in this category, Callaway just know how to get it done and get it done well. This club has that sexy feel about it and makes you want to hit it again and again. It’s long off the tee and forgiving enough for the decent golfer, it is as solid as they come.
Search a little and you’re going to come across a good deal – especially on Amazon that you will want to take advantage of. There’s not much you won’t like about this driver, if there is – let us know!back to menu ↑
