What GolfWRXers are saying about travel bags

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best travel bags on a budget. WRXer ‘Newbie15’ is on the hunt for a travel bag as he travels 2-3 times a year, and asks:

“What do I need to spend and what features are important for protecting the clubs?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • chinaski: “I think 2-3x a year would easily justify a quality bag. I got lucky and found a club glove locally for under $100 and only travel 1-2x a year at most. I’d look at eBay or locally through FB or CL ads.”
  • djcoolaid1914: “I just picked up a club glove on my local OfferUp a few mins ago for a steal ($20). just in time for my trip to Phoenix next week. Check OfferUp, 5Mile FB market and Craigslist. Lot of deals to be had.”
  • DFW Snowman: “I use a Club Glove with a stiff arm. It’s made it through all my flights so far. I take the heads off the woods and stow them in carry on as others have mentioned. It’s been dropped and dragged by the airlines, but everything inside has stayed safe. A couple of things I like are that 1) the wheels are really good on the bag which makes wheeling it around the airport or to a rental car nice and easy and 2) it’s not as massive as a hard case, so I can fit it into virtually any rental car or friend’s car easily. If it’s too big, then I can take everything out and fold the bag up a bit.”
  • jvincent: “My two cents, budget and travel bag should not go together. Even if you only use it 2-3x a year a good back will last you at least 10 years or more. I think my current bag, an SKB hard case, is 12 years old as an example. So, if you use it 30x, that’s $10 per trip for peace of mind if you get a good bag for $300.”
