Golf Bag

A good golf bag not only needs to hold your clubs, but it also needs to be lightweight, waterproof and most importantly (for some) it needs to look great!

We've scoured amazon for the top rated golf bags out there, with a mixture of carry, cart and even pencil bags. 




What types of golf bag are there?

There are four main types of golf bag, two more popular than the others. They are:


Stand(or carry) golf bag 

It's in the name, this golf bag is designed to be carried and usually comes with a two pronged stand allowing you to set the bag down wherever suits. Usually a lighter golf bag for obvious reasons. One benefit is that it can be used all year round. 


Cart (trolley) golf bag

The cart or trolley golf bag is to be used on a buggy, electric trolley or a push/pull trolley. Key benefits are that its usually better for you back, especially if using an electric trolley. 

The downside to a cart golf bag are that you sometimes have to follow a trolley path in winter months and it restricts your access to certain areas on the course, especially if you're not very accurate!. These are very minor things of course. 


Tour golf bag

Primarily used by tour golfers and pros. There's not many upsides to these golf bag apart from the obvious fact that they usually look the best. 

The downs are that they're expensive, heavy and don't usually have as many pockets/accessories as the other bags. 


Pencil golf bag

The smallest and lightest golf bag available. This is a very light weight narrow bag with limited pockets/accessories. Primarily used if you're wanting to carry but want a lighter option than the stand bag. Also useful if you're travelling abroad for golf and need to travel light.
