If Golf Equipment is the topic, golf bags are definitely part of the equation. A player cannot just afford to bring his golf equipment to the club without keeping them in a bag. It’s just not possible to walk around holding a number of clubs or balls as these will surely fall down and would be a hassle for you. In order to play the game well, you have to learn how to be organized and golf bags will be able to help you with that.
And, just like other kinds of bags out there, there is a wide variety of golf bags. These are designed for different purposes and for carrying different kinds of golf equipment and that’s why it is important for you to understand what each of them does and what they are made of.
Different types of bags
Here are the different types of golf bags and what they are all about:
• Carry Bags.
These are especially made for the players to carry them around the golf course and usually have one or two shoulder straps for the convenience of the player. They are also made from lightweight materials so that the player would not have a hard time carrying them around. There are also two types of carry bags and these are:
• Stand bags.
These are known for having inflexible internal reinforcement and fold-out legs that are retractable which makes the bag look like a tripod and allows it to easily stand on the turf.
• Sunday bags.
These are also known as “minimalist carry bags” and are famous for being flexible and lightweight. These bags are foldable and can be rolled up for easy storage. They are also very portable and have a lot of pockets where you can place the balls or tees.
• Staff Bags.
These are the largest golf bags and are often carried by assistants or caddies. They are single-strapped and can carry large storage where you can put in your golf equipment and even your golf attire. These bags also usually have the logo of sponsors of golf events.
• Cart Bags.
These bags are often harnessed to pull-carts or motorized golf carts. A simple strap is used to harness it to the carts and also to load and transport the bag around the golf course. These bags have no stand legs but are great because they have extra storage and are often more durable than other types of bags because they can carry a lot of weight without being ruined.
• Travel Bags.
These are famous for being heavily padded or having a rigid kind of construction such as having a club-head cover and locks on both the bag cover and the zippers, too. As the name suggests, these are used for traveling or for destination golf events in order to keep the golf equipment safe and to make sure that the players would not encounter any kind of hassle when it comes to the safety of their golf paraphernalia. These are also best for protecting the equipment against theft from airports. Travel bags are also usually used by amateur players who have no means of buying staff bags yet and who are often on the move. Rigid flight cases can also help conceal travel bags and that’s why they are favored by many because they lessen the threat of theft and can also conceal how heavy the items inside the bag are.
Choose the bag that’s right for you
By learning about the different kinds of travel bags, what they are made of, and what they can do, you will be able to choose the bag that’s right for you. As a golfer, you have to be organized and you have to know which bag will do the most for you in this regard. When your clubs and other equipment (e.g. tees, gloves) are organized, every game becomes more enjoyable.
