Womens Golf Bags
How are Women’s Golf Bags Different from Men’s?
To be sure, all bags are designed to carry all kinds of golf equipment and other assorted important items. But bags are now being specifically designed for women.
Length: The average woman is shorter than the average man. Manufacturers correctly believe women’s bags can be shorter making it easier to access the clubs.
Weight: Since they are shorter, they can be a bit lighter yet just as durable.
Design: There now is a huge array of different colors and designs to fit many different tastes. There is nothing wrong with having a bit of personal style in a golf bag.
4 Different Types of Bags
Generally speaking, golf bags fall into one of four different categories:
Staff (Tour) bags: Specifically designed for the touring professional, these are the biggest, heaviest and most expensive bags on the market today. They are designed to be carried by caddies who are responsible for the massive amount of gear the pros need. Weighing in at 10 pounds or more, they can carry more stuff than other bags.
Cart bags: If you ride around in a cart when you play or if you use a pull or push style walking cart, this is for you. Designed to take the bouncing around carts will inflict, these check in around 6 pounds and have many features needed on the course.
Stand bags: If you like to carry your clubs, this is the category for you. Usually, these bags have a two leg system attached to the bag so it will stand up when the bottom of the bag is placed on the ground. At 5 pounds or less, it is helpful for them to be lighter in weight.
Travel bags: If you and your clubs are getting into planes to hit the links, you will need one of these. Either soft or hard sided, these are the bags that will shelter your bag and clubs from the damage baggage handlers can cause. They usually include wheels to make it easier to move them around.
Features to Look for in a Bag
With weight being the most important consideration, there are several other features to look for:
Dividers: These handy items are constructed on the inside of the bag to keep clubs from banging into each other.
Pockets: The more the better. Look for pockets with a specified purpose. Waterproof to carry rain gear. Padded for valuables like cell phones.
Straps and handles: Even if you aren’t going to carry them around for 18 holes, you will still need to get the bag from the trunk and back into it at the end of the round.
Price: Having a budget is smart, but making sure you have the right kind of bag with all the right features is critically important.
