What are the best type of golf bags to grab in 2017?


Believe it or not there are many types of golf bags on the market today which makes choosing the best one to be more difficult than it should be. There are so many options, styles, versions, and types that it can be like searching for a needle in a haystack to find a good one. This article will showcase some of the best types of golf bags in 2017.

1. Carry bags. The draw to this type of bag is that it is the lightest and can be easily carried along the course regardless of how many holes you are planning to play. In fact, carry bags are as light as 2 pounds! It is important to note that while this bag is lightweight, it will lack some of the storage that may be necessary. Most carry bags only come with 2 dividers and very little pocket space. Keep this in mind if you are considering a carry bag.

2. Golf stand bags. These type of bags can be convenient and easy to use as they offer legs that will hold the bag up for you while at a hole. When the bag is upright or being carried, the legs will lay against the bag for easy maneuvering. If you are going to walk the golf course, a stand bag is a great option as it will be upright while on the course when you need your clubs and comfortably lay against your back while carrying it. You can expect this type of bag to weigh around 5 pounds and have straps that are like a backpack. The straps are typically comfortable and make the bag easy to carry as it distributes the weight evenly across your back as opposed to on one shoulder like some carry bags.

3. Staff bags are considered to be the absolute best as they are often used by professional golfers who are on tour. It is typical that a staff bag will showcase brand logos and are often quite large with a lot of room to carry equipment. They are also extremely heavy. If you purchase a staff bag, you will want to consider hiring a caddy to carry the bag for you as it is very heavy. This bag weighs around 10 pounds without equipment.

4. Cart bags. While smaller than a tour bag, a cart bag is also lighter and designed to be pushed along the course. If you are a golfer who likes to walk around the course, you will not want to invest in a cart bag. These bags are great for those who desire easy access to the accessories and clubs. Most of these bags also provide a rubber bottom to prevent slipping and sliding on rough or wet terrain.

5. Travel bags. If you travel and play golf, you will want to invest in more than one golf bag. Having a regular golf bag as well as one that is easy to travel with is important and can save you from unnecessary stress and hassle.
