Golf Shag Bag - The Uses

Sep 5, 2008
With the short game being such important part of the game, most good amateur and professional players own and use a golf shag bag. A golf shag bag allows you to practice your short game almost anywhere as it makes practicing much easier. With a practice bag, you can practice at the golf course, in your back yard or in a local park. In addition, many of the older northern clubs do not have driving ranges but have small grassy areas to hit some smaller golf shots prior to your round of golf.

Most golf shag bags are built typically the same way. Your short game practice is made easier because all you need to do is grab the top part of the bag by the metal handle that you hold on to as you pick up your balls. Simply position the bottom of the tube on top of the ball and depress the metal or sometimes plastic tube that extends from the bag shaft over the golf ball that you would like to pick up. Once depressed, the ball will load up into the shaft and is secured without ever bending over to pick up a golf ball. The ball will keep moving up the cylinder until it falls into the bag. To recover the golf balls from the bag, simply use the zipper on the side of the bag and empty.

Players fill their golf shag bag with different types of golf balls. Some players fill their practice bags with golf balls that they have found on the golf course. Others who play at a high level go ahead and purchase new balls to use in their practice bags. This may seem a little extreme but these players want to simulate real conditions as much as possible. The other in-between option is to purchase some refurbished golf balls to fill your bag.

Golf shag bags come in a couple of different sizes however; the majority of these practice bags hold approximately 50-60 golf balls. Again, being only a couple of feet tall and having collapsible bags, a golf ball shag bag is easy to store when it is not in use. The practice golf bags can be stored in your trunk or your locker at the club. You club may agree to keep it in the club storage area in the bag room.

Another use of golf shag bags are at country clubs and resorts. Most golf courses have six to ten of these on hand at any one time. This allows their employees to pick areas that the big picker can not reach such as around the flag or near the net that runs down the edge of the driving range. In addition, a golf shag bag allows them to pick balls that are in wet areas that the picker can not run through with out getting stuck or tearing up the turf on the practice facility.

A golf shag bag makes picking up golf balls for several people. Those who want to practice their short game as well as golf course employees.
