It has two utility handles molded onto the top. The cart strap pass ensures that the pockets are always accessible even when the bag is strapped to the cart. Cart bumpers protect the bag. There is a matching rain hood with the bag. With a bag like this, you’d be tempted to go golfing every day.

This sporty golf bag has a four-way top with two full-length dividers to prevent your golf clubs from getting entangled. The bag has six pockets with zips, including an insulated beverage pocket and velour lined valuables pocket. These ensure that you can find a suitable storage space for everything required for an enjoyable game of golf.
The Ping Pioneer Cart Golf Bag is brought to us by Ping Golf comes in four different color combinations. This bag has a 15-way, golf club dividing top with anti-flex walls that helps protect your clubs in a variety of different situations. With eight zippered pockets, including two large apparel pockets, the Ping Pioneer cart golf bag can really hold a bunch of stuff. To be sure that your items are protected when located inside of this bag, Ping made sure to design and construct this bag with water resistant materials. Aside from just keeping water out of the bag, ping also keeps the cold in.
The Org 14 comes with plenty of storage space to store everything you’ll need on the course. The pockets are not only spacious but also arranged in an intuitive way. You have two cooler pockets for drinks and your towel, two full-length side pockets (one is a cooler) with plenty of shoe space and a mesh section to allow your gloves to air out.
If you want one of the most durable golf stand bags on the market, then I definitely suggest this Callaway model for your gear. It’s made by one of the top brands in the industry and it really does offer you a lot for the money.

As the name implies, the Ping Hoofer is intended to be carried as you walk the course and is thoughtfully designed to accomplish said purpose as effortlessly as possible. It has well-padded, easily-adjustable shoulder straps and weighs just 5 pounds.
The bag’s double-strap system is made of a moisture-wicking material which keeps you cool and dry on those hot summer days. Other features include a nine-inch, five-way top with two full-length dividers to keep your clubs from jumbling, a removable rain hood, umbrella holder, and a strap channel to keep it secure and easily-accessible a cart.
Though I really like this one, there are still some room for improvements here. While it does have a beverage pocket, a small cooler pocket would be preferable to me. I’d also prefer a bag with individual spots for the clubs instead of the 5-way opening and two full length dividers.
Dividers: Dividers at the top of the golf bag will keep your clubs organized and will limit the number of times they crash into each other. Some bags have only a few dividers, while others have a dozen or more dividers. The dividers in a less expensive bag will only be at the top of the golf bag, while more expensive units will have dividers that run the length of the bag, keeping the handles of your golf clubs from becoming tangled.
One of the really great things about the 2015 Callaway Org 14 bag is that it weighs under 5 pounds, however the updated 2016 version clocks in it at around 5.6 pounds when empty. Sure, that isn’t even a full pound of difference in weight, but I like to go with the most lightweight option that I can find and I really hate that the 2016 edition of this one weighs a little more than the older version.
Hard bags tend to be gray or black on the outside while the soft ones come in many different colors. Besides a durable outer shell, the handles are padded or reinforced. Some bags feature external pockets, and some feature luggage or in-line skate wheels. The top of them are padded on the inside.
The Callaway Chev has grab handles on both the top and the bottom that make it easier to maneuver when trying to get it in or out of a trunk. It comes in six different color options, all of which really stand apart from the crowd.
Regarding the bag’s side pockets, the common-sense rule is that drinks and snacks should be placed in a separate pocket from towels and gloves. Balls and tees should be afforded their own pockets, and – given these items are used so often – those pockets should be located near the bag’s top.
Most of the time, you’ll find a towel clip, loop or ring on the side. You need this because it is an easy way to keep a towel handy for wiping debris off your gear. Since the exact feature varies (clip, look or ring), just look out for the type that you prefer.
Travel bags are meant to protect your gear, including your regular bag, while traveling. They’re not meant to be used as a replacement for the one that you use when you play golf. Some of them are designed to be hard-case luggage, while others are malleable bags that are made from durable material. If you use a travel one only 15 or so times a year, you will have saved yourself hundreds of dollars in club repairs because of how well they work.
Sun Mountain’s C-130 golf bag remains the company’s best-selling golf cart bag as it enters its seventh year in production. Every year the designers at Sun Mountain have made improvements and modifications but the foundation of the bag has remained constant: individual club-divided, reverse-oriented top; enough pocket space to live up to its cargo-plane referencing name; all pockets accessible even when the bag is on a cart; and light enough that it can be easily carried from car to cart.

As you may already know, Sun Mountain is one of the top brands for golf bags and that’s why this model made our list. That being said, overall we don’t love all of the Sun Mountain gear but we do really like this one.
If there’s going to be a list about easy-to-carry walking bags, then the Callaway 2017 Hyper Lite Zero Stand Bag has to be near the top. Perhaps the lightest stand bag on the market at just 2.4 pounds, you get many of the useful features Callaway includes on most of its bags. The comfort-tech strap system (single or double strap available) and soft mesh hip pad make walking the course a breeze.
Staff: A staff bag, also called a tour bag, is the biggest golf bag around, as it offers a look similar to what a professional golfer would carry. A staff bag is heavy, but it has a large and padded strap so it can be carried a little more comfortably. This style of golf bag will last a long time, as it consists of the best materials. It’s also the most expensive.
We recommend not carrying it fully loaded the first few times you play, just so you can get a feel for its weight before filling it with all of your clubs. The Titleist Mid-Size bag weighs about 10 pounds before you place any clubs or other gear inside it. That weight adds up quickly over 18 holes.
Bought this bag for airplane transport. Thought I would have to buy smaller golf bag but my clubs fit great in my original bag. Some padding on the bag makes me feel more confident my clubs will arrive in one piece. For the money its a great find.
As you can see, this one is loaded with great features. It’s easy to use with a cart, but if you decide to carry it then you’ve got that nicely padded strap to ease the burden. I love that it has so many pockets, including a beverage cooler pocket.
