Ask any enthusiastic golfer what is the next most important stuff they need after golf clubs and golf balls, and you’ll hear them say that it’s a high-quality golf bag. There’s just no way they could make it around the fairway without one.
A golf bag is unique, it features function and the golfer’s identity. While it does not help us line up a crucial putt, it helps us tote our clubs. It also outwardly projects a little something about us as a golfer, too.
But selecting a golf bag should not be taken lightly like the way you choose other bags, because this is something that you are going to use every time you hit the green. Further, it is not only a way for you to transport your clubs, but it should also be a dependable safe storage that protects your equipment from any risk of damage. In short, you want a quality bag that best reflects your personal style and shields your special set of clubs all the time.
There are countless types of golf bags on the market, so picking one that best suits your needs can seem challenging at first. Having a golf bag that meets your specific needs will make it easier for you to enjoy your round and play better golf.
Commonly, there are four basic types of golf bags:
1. Tour Staff Golf Bags
2. Cart Golf Bags
3. Stand Golf Bags
4. Sunday Golf Bags
In order to narrow down your choices for the best golf bag, you need to have a fundamental understanding of each golf bag to help you understand which bag (or bags) is right for you and your golf game. We have listed the pros and cons of the most common type of bags:
Tour Staff Golf Bags
A Tour Staff Golf Bag is often seen as the most frequently used bag of the best golfers in the world. However, this type of golf bag is not limited to professional golfers only. So, even if you are an amateur, you can own one too.
Tour Staff Golf Bag offers sufficient space for everything you will bring. This is particularly helpful especially in times when the weather requires a full rain suit, an extra pair of golf shoes, etc. These golf bags can also be stylishly professional and more importantly, it can be customized with a company logo to boost brand reach.
These bags tend to be heavyweight and thus, can be inconvenient to carry around the golf course. Also, the protruding front pockets limit a Staff Bag to just sitting on a cart.
CART GOLF BAGS
It goes without saying that these golf bags are purposely intended to be attached to a golf cart. Most well made golf cart bags feature a cart strap loop, which allows you to securely fasten the bag into the back of the golf cart, along with ample space for golf clubs and numerous functional pockets.
If you are a golfer who only rides in golf carts or uses a pull cart then this golf bag will absolutely suit you. Cart bags are also lightweight, even though they are larger in size compared to a stand bag. Hence, they don’t take up too much space in the backseat or trunk.
A cart bag’s usability might be very limited because it is not suitable for carrying around the golf course, particularly for international golf travel where golf carts may not be permitted most of the time. It may be trivial though, but cart bags that contain a lot of pockets can also make it difficult for some to keep track of their different pieces of stuff’ location quickly.
GOLF STAND BAGS
These bags are by far the most favorite of players who prefer walking and carrying their golf bags because they are lightweight and they have stand legs that keep your golf bag upright.
Well-made Stand Golf Bags feature strong legs that expand and collapse consistently, comfortable dual straps, six dividers to keep your clubs organized, and enough pockets to carry a full set of clubs, water bottles, umbrellas, golf balls, tees, and rain gear.
These bags allow golfers to keep their clubs upright on their own when they’re on the driving range or the chipping/putting green, something you can’t do with a staff or cart bag. Not to mention, these bags are also great for the golf course. They take up lesser space than a cart or staff bag, which makes it easier to fit in most car trunks.
The legs and base mechanism of stand bags can tend to be more prone to damage. The same can also make stand bags unsuitable to place on a pull/pushcart.
SUNDAY GOLF BAGS
Sometimes called a Sunday Golf Bag or a Carry Golf Bag, these types of golf bags are the lightest and smallest golf bags available.
Sunday Golf Bags are not only incredibly light, they take up very little space, which means it can sit in your trunk and be easily accessible for late practice sessions. Some Carry Golf Bags also include legs, but even the ones that don’t are easy to pick up off the ground and keep carrying.
Limited storage space for your golf accessories, such as tees and golf balls. The bags with stand legs are susceptible to being blown over in heavy winds.
Now that you have a good grasp of what different types of golf bags can offer, which one do you think is right for your golf game? Well, that depends on several factors like purpose and your personal preferences. And more often than not, you may really need more than one golf bag.
