consider these factors

When on the search for your ideal new golf travel bag you should first consider the following factors: Portability, maneuverability, storability and protection

Whether you’re a casual golfer who only takes a golf trip once a year or a road warrior who checks their clubs every week, your golf clubs are an investment and you should invest in protecting them.

Below you’ll find various travel bags in an array of styles and materials, available in multiple colors and loaded with the functionalities you need in a travel bag.

Perks of a Stand Bag

Unless you pack your clubs into your travel bag from the curb outside the airport check-in counter (don’t be that person), chances are you’re going to need to haul your travel bag around a bit. You’re going to want a bag that is easy to move or prop up when you need to free up your ends. Who knows how far you might need to pull it.
A travel cover is something that you only actually use for a few hours at a time. All the rest of the time you own it, it will either be in your closet, rental car trunk, golf course pro shop, etc. Because space is usually limited, especially when you’re on the road, you want to make sure your travel cover can store reasonable well and not take up too much room.
Don’t trust the airlines to handle your golf bag with care. Instead make sure your golf clubs are protected well with a sturdy travel cover designed to take the impacts of drops and bangs, instead of your driver shaft.

Sun Mountain ClubGlider

Sun Mountain ClubGlider Meridian

The Meridian minimizes the hassle of traveling with your golf gear. Dense foam padding through the top of the bag protects your clubs; the leg mechanism supports the weight of your bag; and the pivoting wheels make the bag highly maneuverable. Pulling a loaded ClubGlider is nearly effortless.

The Sun Mountain ClubGlider is one of the most unique travel covers out there thanks to its innovative retractable leg design. The legs extend out, providing two more wheels and bearing the entire weight of the bag.

Therefore, moving the ClubGlider around the airport is a breeze — they call it the ClubGlider for a reason.

But the ClubGlider isn’t just best in class for maneuverability, it’s ballistic-style nylon material, padded top and heavy-duty zippers make it one of the more durable bags on our list.

Rather carry your bag like you would normally through the airport than roll it? The Sunday Golf STIX_THE MULE is for you.

Designed exclusively to fit Sunday’s Loma, Loma XL and El Camino golf bags, The Mule doesn’t have wheels, making it lighter than any other travel cover and easily foldable when not in use.

Club Glove Last Bag

Club Glove Last Bag Collegiate

For those that simply want to pack only their stand bag and some additional gear. Perfectly designed to fit most stand or carry bags. It’s the No. 1 travel bag in all of collegiate golf.

Club Glove prides itself on being the No. 1 travel bag in college golf and the Last Bag Collegiate is a big reason why.

Designed to be the last travel bag you will ever need, the Last Bag is made from 1000 Denier Nylon and reinforced with 1600 D ballistic nylon at the base, making it water resistant and super durable.

My family still uses Club Gloves that are pushing 20 years old and are still backed by their lifetime warranty.

Sun Mountain Kube

Sun Mountain Kube

The Kube, Sun Mountain’s newest travel bag, is an exciting new development in travel gear. They used hardy, ballistic style fabric in combination with plastic half-shells. When not in use, the Kube folds down to 9″ x 13″ x 14.5″ for storage.

The Sun Mountain Kube has the same ballistic-style nylon fabric and dense foam padding throughout the construction for protection as the ClubGlider, but it folds down into the size of a small suitcase when not in use.

The Kube is perfect for those who want to travel lightly, as it will neatly tuck into the rental car trunk, along with everything that was inside it, during your trip.

Ogio Alpha Travel Cover

Ogio Alpha Travel Cover Mid

If you think that travelling with your clubs is difficult, stressful, or profanity-inducing, it just means that you’re traveling with the wrong bag. No matter where you are going, or how many golf trips you have planned this year, the ALPHA MID will be ready for anywhere you’re headed; birdies not included.

The Ogio Alpha Mid is designed to make traveling with golf clubs easy and stress-free. Thanks to extra padding around the clubheads and reinforced compression straps with integrated handles, you can rest easy knowing your clubs will make it to your destination unharmed.

The Alpha Mid offers a unique D-shaped opening, making loading and unloading the bag easier since you don’t have to hold the two sides apart while you do it.
