Golf Bags

    Choosing a new golf bag
    With hundreds of styles, colours and makes, it’s hard to choose a new golf bag if you are new to the game.

    The first thing to decide is, will you be carrying or mounting your new bag on a push or electric golf trolley.  If you choose the former then you need to look at carry bags.  Again, there is a variation in carry bags.  Stand bags, water proof bags or small lightweight pencil bags.  So, let’s explore these options first.

  • Stand bags
    Stand bags are very popular with the younger generation who prefer to carry their golf bag.  Normally made with lightweight waterproof material and fitted with a stand, these bags are a great choice if you want carry.   Unlike the pencil bag the stand bag normally has many pockets to cater for your needs.

    Pencil bags
    The pencil type golf bag is perfect to sling into the boot of your car on the warm summer evenings.  The positives, extremely lightweight and can manage all 14 golf clubs, balls, tees and gloves.

    The negatives, not great for all year-round golf in climates where waterproofs and additional clothing need to be stored.

    Cart bags
    Cart bags are designed to fit golf trolleys, electric or push and pull.

    Due to their size, cart bags are not designed to be carried, at least not for 18 holes.  The main advantages of cart bags are: huge number of pockets, take pretty much anything with you on the golf course, water proof and extremely stylish.

    Tour bags
    Tour bags original designed for the touring professional.  Tour bags look fantastic, but looks are not everything!  Unless you have a big car and a caddy to carry your new tour bag I would personally stay away.

    Positives: Tour bags look the part and you can get everything in there, including the kitchen sink.

    Negatives: Awkward to get into your car unless you have a tank. Very heavy and difficult to manage.
