Choosing the right golf bag is an important decision and de Boer’s Golf Shop is here to help. There is seemingly no end to the variety and styles of golf bags that are available these days. There is something out there for every kind of golfer.
There are two types of golf bags: stand bags and cart bags.
The stand or carry bag is designed for those who are prone to walk the golf course. They are equipped with a dual shoulder strap system and fold-out legs that allows the bag to stand up on end. You can easily slide your clubs off your shoulders into the standing upright position in one smooth motion. These lightweight golf bags are designed for the players comfort as they are carried by the player.
The cart bag is a bag and designed to fit either on a wheeled, hand-pushed golf cart or on the back of a motorized golf cart. Cart bags are not designed to carry comfortably on the golf course. They typically provide several compartments which allow you to carry a lot of stuff, and help to keep your belongings organized so you can find what you need quickly.
How many clubs do you take with you? How much space do you need for your things? How much are you prepared to spend? This will determine the size, design and features you're looking for. Other issues to consider are color, appearance, weight and club separation. Today's bags are incredibly user friendly, stylish to look at, super lightweight and efficient.
Companies are coming out with bags featuring individual slots for each club. Some of these slots (depending on the bag) are separated all the way to the bottom. This greatly reduces the chances of clubs getting caught on one another.
Another feature right now is the external putter tube. Ever lose your putter surrounded by the longer clubs in your bag? These tubes help eliminate that and also allow for more room in the bag.
Some of the new design features golf bags have, are insulated cooler pockets, external ball holders and zipper-less ball pockets. Some have dual fleece lined valuables pockets, cell phone pockets and built-in clips for car keys.
A good golf bag is essential and few things are more important to a golfer than a good golf bag. Buying a bag comes down to use and price; but first and foremost it's about how you plan to use it. You should pick a bag that fits well and can carry everything you need to have a comfortable game.
There are plenty of selections to choose from when you want to buy a new golf bag and de Boer’s Golf will help you make an informed decision on which bag would best suit you and allow you to enjoy the great game of golf.
