Your first golf bag? We can help you.

If you are just getting started in this sport you will probably find it difficult to choose between the varieties of golf bags on the market. It´s always good to ask your golf teacher for advice, since nobody else knows your personal character better to help you with the election. Before deciding on a model, brand or type of bag, we will explain the different models you can find on the market.

Pitch & putt bag
As the name indicates, it´s an ideal bag for pitch & putt courses with holes of a distance between 40 and 120 meters and where your will use clubs for short distances. On these courses your bag need to carry fewer clubs than on conventional course. Not needing so much equipment, these bags are small and usually weigh less than 1kg. In addition to the compartments for the clubs, they have lined pockets for everything you need during your game (balls, tees, water, food, clothes, etc.)

Tripod bags
These are made to be carried on the shoulder, but when you put them on the ground they deploy two legs, creating stability in the bag and preventing it from falling. They are usually made of polyester, ballistic nylon or carbon fibre. It´s recommended choosing a waterproof material to support rain or humidity in the summer. They are of a light weight, around 1.5 kg. Some models have club compartments that helps to protect the shafts and preventing any damage of the clubs.

Golf bags for trolleys and buggies
The buggy bags have a specific design to better adapt to the trolleys and buggies and to leave all pockets accessible. They have wider pockets than tripod bags and generally have 14 departments for the clubs, although some models can have up to 15. Their weight usually ranges between 1.8 and 2.2 kg.
