The answer to this is it depends. It depends upon your age, the quality of your club, the ball you are using, the conditions etc etc.

However, if you are an average player then typically you will probably be hitting it an average of 130 yards. Subsequent clubs are about 10 yards different i.e 7 iron is 140, 6 iron is 150. -

How long should a beginner at golf hit an 5 iron?

A 5 iron is quite a hard club to hit because it could be considered a long iron, with a longer shaft and the face has little loft. I would say it all depends on age, weight, strength and how good your swing is. Most beginners think the harder they swing the further they hit it, this is wrong, if you get into a good rhythm you will find the middle of the club and the ball will go well. I would say if you hit it 150 yards you are doing well, as you progress you will begin to hit it farther. A pro like Tiger Woods would hit a 5 iron around 190-200 yards.

The average length of a golf club?

It depends on the club. Drivers are the longest clubs - most of them have shafts of around 45". A 3 iron will have a longer shaft than a 4 iron; the clubs get sequentially shorter as the numbers get higher. Putters are the shortest clubs in general, with the exception of belly and long putters. If you are referring to the average length of the golf clubs in a set, take out your 5 iron and measure that.

What driver should a beginner in golf be using?

A good idea is a large headed high lofted (10.5 degrees plus) and a regular flex shaft. There may be a temptation to get a 9.5 stiff and try and hit it as far as you can, but the first driver i suggested will pay dividends in the long term. The driver is a hard club to hit for beginners due to it's low loft and long shaft.
