Getting To Grips With More Courses

Apr 11, 2008
People that don't know the game of golf well may not always understand that there is more to the game than just driving a tiny ball to a tiny hole far away. One of the great things about the game is just being outside enjoying nature on great golf courses all around the world. It is fun to golf on a familiar course in your home town where you know those greens like you know the back of your and. But golf also has a call to adventure to get out and enjoy golf courses in another location either in the next town or across the globe.

Golf is not as much a competition with other golfers as it is you conquering a course. So when you take on the challenge of a new course on a golf trip, you want to play with your best skills working for you. And to be at the top of your game, you have to have the clubs you had made for you in your hands. So naturally when you travel to play golf, your golf clubs have to travel too. So it's a good idea to think ahead how to get your golf clubs to your destination undamaged so your that investment in good golf clubs is ready for battle when you take on that new course.

Obviously you are not going to throw your golf clubs in their golf bag on the carousel of an airline and expect to ever see them again. So when you are about to go traveling whether it's by air or car, a good golf travel bag is important. The decision to make is whether to go with a soft golf case or one that is a hard shell that can resist a lot more of the hard knocks that often come along when golf clubs go traveling.

From a cost perspective, the low impact financial choice is the soft golf case. But it's important to get some perspective because this bag will have the job of protecting what may be the biggest expense of your golfing passion - those high quality customized golf clubs. So the quality of your golf case that must keep those golf clubs from harm on the road may not be the place to economize. If you must find a way to get good travel equipment for your clubs on a budget, think about buying a used case on eBay or at a pawn shop in town.

There is no question that you cannot expect a soft golf case to cut it when your expensive golf clubs must go through baggage claim. Sometimes airlines place such an emphasis that you do not put your golf clubs at risk in baggage claim that they will offer insurance for your clubs if you use quality protection like a good hard shell golf case. Think of buying a quality golf travel case as an investment because it will serve you well for the upcoming trip and for many trips in the future or in any other harsh environment that your clubs may need to be in.

This is not to say that soft golf cases are not very good choices for certain kinds of travel situations. A soft case is excellent for a car excursion because it is lighter and can be packed into the truck of a car and not take up as much space as a hard case. Another plus is that you can wrap your clubs in a soft casing and they can still fit down into the golf bag for transportation so you can keep the entire unit together for the entire trip.

In addition to a sturdy golf case, you should take the second step of protection and pad each individual golf club inside the golf case before going on the road. Quality golf shops can sell you head covers that can be tied to each club to keep the heads in balance and to protect from scratches or dings. But also pad around each golf club with towels or some of your clothing for the trip so there is no movement inside that golf case as your clubs travel to your destination with you.

Taking care of your golf clubs is a priority for you every time you take them out to use them. You do regular cleaning and repair to them all the time to make sure they are in top shape to give you the best game possible every game they play in. So it makes sense you would use that same level of care and precaution for this important part of your game when you take them on the road to conquer foreign ground and add another course to your list of places you enjoyed the fun of playing golf.
