2017 Golf Stand Bags
Stand bags (also referred to as carry bags) are the most popular option for players to carry their clubs around the greens. Much of its popularity derives from them being lightweight in construction and comfortable to carry on the golf course, but there are other reasons, too, which will be highlighted in this buying guide.
What is a golf stand bag?
Stand bags are larger than pencil bags, but smaller than trolley bags, and offer a wealth of storage options and other useful features. Stand bags earn points for being able to stand upright when full of clubs, keeping them in easy reach when preparing to make a shot. being able to stand the bag upright is also great for keeping dirt and grime off the golf clubs by lying them on the ground between shots.
Selecting stand bags
When choosing stand bags, it is a good idea to check the stability of the legs, along with the base of the bag, as it needs to be able to support itself; especially when full of golf clubs.
