How to Choose the Right Golf Bag for your Golfing Holiday

Golf bags today do not only house the golf clubs; they also provide compartments for refreshments, clothes and accessories like mobile phones. Some manufacturers recognize the need for women to re-touch their make-up, so they added a pocket for that.

Bags come in different colours, styles, sizes, and materials. The pencil bag is ideal for the 9-hole match. It is designed from lightweight materials to hold only a few golf clubs. The stand bag, another style of golf bag, provides storage and protection for the complete set of golf clubs.

The lightweight nylon-based materials and dual padded straps evenly distribute the weight across your back and shoulders. The latest stand bags come with retractable legs that are spring-loaded. The legs extend automatically when the bag is placed down. This feature enables you to access your golf clubs from a comfortable angle.

These lightweight and compact bags are perfect for travelling, especially if you are flying to your golfing holiday and weight is an issue.

Golf bags can also be similar to a trolley. Designed to carry a complete set of golf clubs, trolley bags have 14 graphite-friendly dividers to provide excellent club protection in transit. It is the favourite bag among golfers, professionals, and hobbyists because it can be pushed, pulled, or used as an electric golf trolley.

Trolleys also feature several pockets that can be accessed without removing the bag from the trolley. Like all types of bags, the trolley can also be customized with a logo, text, and colour. To buy a trolley, you can browse through the auction sites and stores on the internet.

There are cheap golf bags that have excellent features and are in good condition. Even the designer bags such as Wilson, Tailor-made and Mizuno are sold at lower prices compared to similar bags sold in the brick-and-mortar world.

The only drawback of buying golf bags online is not having the chance to inspect the bags like you could when you shop at a local store. However, there is another way to ensure that your golf bag is exactly what you want it to be.

Go to the websites that offer specifications on golf accessories and equipment. Some e-stores inform customers of the available colour and sizes of each item on display.

Assess your golf needs and expectations of your golf bags. To make your search organised, you can list down the features and basic specifications that you want. Make sure each bag you find has all or some of the particulars on your list.

Never forget to include the travel cover for your golf bags. This protects the contents in your bag, particularly the golf clubs. Moreover, choose the bag that has an insulated cooler pocket for your hot and cold refreshments.
