Tips on Getting the Right Golf Bag for You

Aug 9, 2008
There are many different types of golf bags. If you are planning on getting into the sport or you just need a new bag, you should consider your options. The most common types of golf bags include carry bags, cart bags, staff bags, and travel bags.

The carry bags are the right choice for you if you like to walk. These golf bags are lightweight and the best option when you stroll the golf course with your bag. They are usually made of plastic, canvas, and nylon. A carry bag most often can fit your set of basic clubs, balls, tees, and they can even fit a towel. You can take advantage of a stand also. This allows for the bag to remain standing upright while you are taking your turn.

The most popular golf bags today are the cart bags. These bags are ideal to put on the back of a golf cart. If you are a walker you don't want this bag. They are too bulky to carry and designed for golfers who want to bring every club they can possibly fit in their bag with them. The cart bags fit perfectly on the frame of a hand pushed cart. These bags are large and can fit all of your clubs, a pair of shoes, towels, and even more. If you buy a cart bag, you can carry it. However, when you fill a cart bag it requires a strong back.

The staff golf bag is the bag used by the professional golfers. These bags are designed to fit every club imaginable. They can fit up to 14 golf clubs in them and anything else a golfer wants to take with them on the golf course. This type of golf bag is designed to be easy to carry and is often carried by a caddy. However, most professionals do use a golf cart on the course also. The staff bag will allow you to take a lot of items with you on the golf course.

If you like to take your clubs with you on vacation then you might want to choose a golf bag designed for travel. These are called travel bags. These are very popular bags for business trips and for vacation. There are two types of golf travel bags; soft and hard. The soft travel bag is ideal for car trips and they are lightweight and compact. If you plan on traveling by plane then you should consider the hard travel bag as your option. This is because the hard golf bag has an outer shell that is hard and provides protection so your clubs will not be damages. The hard bags also fit great on a golf cart when you get to your destination and you won't have to change bags. They are considered luggage on the plane and you can check them in. When you are walking the golf course the hard bags are not recommended but they are perfect to ensure none of your clubs are bent during your travel.

There are many different types of golf bags you can choose from. If you are looking for a great golf bag then you should consider the things you want to take with you on the course like how many clubs, towels and more. You should also consider if you will be walking with your bag, traveling, or riding in a cart.
