I am on my third Club Glove… wouldn’t even consider another brand. Never had a club damaged (always use the Stiff Arm). I average 25 plane trips a year with the sticks. These covers last years, outlasting golf clubs and bags. I have tried the SKB hard cases, but they really don’t offer much more protection, they break and are a pain to fit into a rental car frequently. Then it takes up a big patch of real estate in your hotel room…
From amateurs to avid golfers, having the right, or wrong, golf bag can make or break the game. There are plenty of bags from which to choose with a range of styles, types, and new and used bags. Different…
Is it about time to replace that old golf bag of yours? Are you tired of strapping that stand bag to the cart and you’re finally ready to order that cart bag you’ve been wanting? No matter the reason for your interest in quality, name-brand golf bags at discount prices, you’ve come to the right place.
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.
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.
Side note: For any travel bag you choose, we recommend getting a Stiff Arm, made by Club Glove. This product is dead simple, but will add another layer of protection to you clubs. It’s an adjustable aluminum rod with a plastic head that you put in your bag alongside your tallest club. It acts as shield for your driver whenever the bag inevitably gets slung around and lands on its top throughout the course of your trip. Yes, it’s $30 for something that looks silly and seems inconsequential. But you’ll appreciate it when your $500 driver makes it to the course in one piece.
No matter what travel bag, I always use the Stiff Arm by Clubglove, the telescoping club protector put in your bag next to your driver. I’ve had two stiff arms ruined by the impact of baggage handling, but my driver survived.
For travel bags, our scoring centered around the protection of clubs and the durability of the bag. The possible storage within the bag and the storage of the bag after use were also considered. Maneuverability – especially through airports – was tested too.

For sale is a pre owned PING DEN CADDY Mini Staff Bag Office Black and White That is in good condition. It does show some wear with some scuffs and marks and could use a good cleaning but would look great in any office or man cave.

Please take a look at the pictures of the actual item you will receive and ask any questions that you may have.
Hybrid bags are best thought of as cart bags with the ability to stand. Most are larger than your typical stand bag and are usually used on carts, but can also be used for walking when needed. More and more manufacturers have begun creating hybrid bags, innovating to reduce weight and increase versatility while not sacrificing function.

To determine the best test travel bags, we prepared a golf bag with any and all possible gear one could need while traveling. We included 1 Set of Alignment Sticks, 1 Box of Golf Balls, 14 Clubs, 1 Umbrella, 1 Pair of Golf Shoes, Tees, 4 Gloves, 1 Set of Rain Gear, and 1 Rangefinder.

We’re always fine-tuning the process to make sure we’re collecting the best data possible. Continuing that trend we’ve updated and refined this year’s analysis to bring you the best buying advice possible.
Most good bags have the same construction: a full zip from top to bottom, a reinforced base and a padded top. The ClubGlider has one feature that stands out with its leg mechanism that extends and retracts for easy rolling from your car to the airport. When you load up your bag to the 50 pound weight limit, it gets heavy. The extra two wheels (that turn 360 degrees) take some of the pressure off and makes wheeling around a breeze. That’s what makes the Meridian a standout. Dragging a bag from your car to a hotel or around the airport is never *pleasant* but this bag makes it as close as possible. Sun Mountain makes four travel bag options: the Meridian, Tour Series, Journey and Pro Travel Bag. We’re recommending the Meridian for most golfers, as the Tour series is designed by huge cart bags and the Journey is made with Denier polyester instead of ballistic nylon. The Meridian comes in eight color options too, instead of just black and white.
Great bag in excellent condition. Slight fading to red fabric as seen in pics. A variety of pockets and features, including H20 Resist technology waterproof pockets. I strive to be as honest and forth…
High-quality skid bars further enhance durability, and the lockable wrap-around zipper promotes convenient access without sacrificing security. In-line skate wheels roll smoothly. Extra-thick padded top protects clubs.
I agree with all the criteria being used but I would have liked to see another one: Weight. I try to pack as much as possible in my travel bag so it’s important that it is lightweight. I’m sure the Stiff Arm works but being Canadian, I just cut the blade off an old hockey stick and it’s worked so far!
The Titleist Den Caddy adds Titleist Golf style and attitude to any room you put it in. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. It also makes the perfect gift for the golfer in your li…
Club Glove’s name exudes confidence. Naming your travel bag “Last Bag” means your customers aren’t going to have to replace this bag for the rest of their golfing life. Granted, the price is $319.99, so it better be resilient. And the Last Bag lives up to the name. It weighs 10.6 lbs on its own, so it feels hearty and strong right out of the box. It’s made out of Cordura water resistant nylon, has YKK zippers and comes with an extra padded handle at the top and bottom. Also, the 2016 model has extra reinforcement on the back of the bag towards the base that was easily strained in older models. For $59, you can buy a “No Questions Asked” warranty, where Club Glove will replace your bag for free if anything happens to it. Otherwise, it has a limited lifetime warranty. Club Glove offers three sizes: Last Bag XL Pro Tour, Last Bag Large Pro and Last Bag Collegiate. Our pick is the Large Pro because the XL Pro Tour is huge and the Collegiate is small. The Large Pro is just right.
Maneuverability (10 points) -How easy is it to load and unload the bags from the car? How easy is it to move through the airport? We closely examined the design of the wheels, the handle placement, as well as the structural base of the bag. Bags that performed poorly were awkward while walking. The top performers are not only easy to walk with but were also able to stand without assistance. Bags that were more stable through the middle section generally performed better.
To protect your woods, take the heads off (if possible), put inside headcovers, then put in side pocket of your golf bag. No stiff arm needed and the shafts can take more of a beating from bags stacked on top without breaking
New Titleist Player’s 5 Golf Bag. Carry/Stand Bag. The bag has 5 club dividers. The colors are black, white and red. Rain hood included. Dividers: 5. 5-way top cuff with full length dividers to keep clubs protected and organized.
Storage (5 points) – When you put your travel bag in a corner of your garage, how much space does it take up? Some bags simply fold up, while others are designed specifically with space-savings in mind.
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.
I’m currently gaming a Bridgestone JGR that I got through a promotion WITH MGS. It has a bonded head. I agree that if your Driver etc are adjustable, remove the heads, and insert the shafts adapter down. However, the addition of a Stiff Arm or similar (saw hockey stick shaft here somewhere) is NEVER a bad idea.
