Staff Golf Club Bags
Considered by golfers as a top-drawer bag, a staff bag has a roomy interior to carry clubs and golf accessories, such as balls, club head covers and score cards. Use a golf cart to transport the sporting goods item or carry the bag with you while golfing. Enjoy the many features that keep your equipment protected and within easy reach.
What should you consider when purchasing a staff golf club bag?
Also called tour bags, a staff bag is heavier, weighing about 5 kilograms unloaded, and sturdier than a golf club cart bag. Staff bags have room for more items if you prefer carrying a full set of clubs and items, such as an umbrella. These bags are normally used by professional players rather than hobbyists as playing golf is their livelihood. Since staff bags are heavier and have more pocket compartments, golfers employ a caddy to carry the bag or purchase a push or pull cart. If you have limited room in your vehicle, a fully-packed staff bag may not fit.
What features are available in staff golf club bags?
These bags can have as many as eight or more pockets as well as additional outside water bottle pockets. A towel ring holds cloths you can use to wipe down your neck and face on hot days and an umbrella well for rain protection gear. A belly pocket can hold your rangefinder to calculate distances from holes with room to stash ball markers and golf spikes. Moreover, staff bags are made from high-quality leather or polyester that holds up to rainstorms and the hot summer sun. Individual holes keep your clubs from banging against one another or getting tangled, while dividers allow you to organise clubs by woods, irons and putters.
How do golfers use a staff golf club bag on the green?
These bags have balanced bases so they don't topple over from the weight. Some include standout legs similar to a tripod to provide additional support. Assist handles help you manoeuvre the bag to each hole or when transferring it to a cart. Some golfers strap the bag into the cart to access the contents without removing it at each hole.
