Expert Tips on Selecting Golf Bags

While many sports require specialized equipment, in most cases, you don’t have to carry all that equipment with you during the game itself. Golf is unusual in this respect, and over the years, experts have come up with a variety of ways to solve this logistical issue, with the most prominent example being specialized golf bags.

Our team at Nevada Bob’s Golf has extensive experience in the golf business, and you can count on us to help you select the ideal bag for your needs. In this article, we’ll go over a few expert tips on selecting golf bags to help you get started.

  • Consider Transportation – Our first tip for choosing golf bags is to think about how you plan to get around the course—do you plan to walk most of the way, or do you want to take a golf cart? Golf bags designed to be carried have different features than those designed to be transported via a cart.
  • Consider Weight – If you plan to carry your bag, we encourage you to look for light-weight golf bags, as these will be easier on your back and shoulders. Remember, you’ll already be carrying your clubs and other equipment, so it’s wise to keep the bag itself as light as possible.
  • Consider Features – Our third tip for choosing golf bags is to look at the features each option offers. Many golf bag designs feature dividers to keep your clubs organized, as well as dedicated pockets for your balls, tees, and other equipment. Many bags also feature retractable legs to make the bag itself into a tripod, allowing it to stand up for easier club selection.
