A golf bag is one of the most underrated pieces of gear a golfer uses every single round, but just because it doesn’t hit any shots doesn’t mean it’s not important. It needs to be comfortable for walking, roomy enough to hold the necessary amount of clubs, be able to withstand the elements and, hopefully, look pretty cool, too.
Using the right golf bag can make or break the golfing experience. If you’ve ever tried walking 18 holes with a golf bag that has annoying straps and not enough pocket space, then you know what I’m talking about. A golf bag truly matters.
The current golf market, however, can be difficult to navigate given all of the different bag options. There’s lightweight carry bags of all shapes and sizes, bags that are designed specifically for cart use, and a range of price points.
To help you out a little, we’ve selected seven of the top golf bags on the market. Check out some of our picks below, and for more options, visit our Pro Shop here.
