Looking for the perfect golf bag for your existing set of clubs? Here’s your go-to guide to the best golf bags on the market – if we may say so ourselves.

We know there are many golf bag options out there, so let’s explore the top picks from the Golf 360 team. We’ll ensure you not only look good on the course but also have everything you need at arm’s reach.

Golf Bag FAQs

Q. What materials are commonly used in golf bag construction?

A. Common materials include nylon, polyester, and leather. Each has its durability and style characteristics.

Q. What should I consider when choosing between a lightweight and a more substantial golf bag?

A. Consider how you primarily play – walking or using a cart. Lightweight bags are ideal for walkers, while heavier bags may offer more features for cart users.

Q. How important is waterproofing in a golf bag?

A. Waterproofing is essential for protecting your equipment in wet conditions. However, if you don’t enjoy playing in the wet weather, this might not be an important feature for you.

Q. Can I use a stand bag on a golf cart?

A. Yes, but it’s not ideal. Stand bags lack the specialised features of cart bags, so using them on a cart might be less convenient.

Q. How can I keep my golf bag clean and well-maintained?

A. Regularly wipe down the bag with a damp cloth, avoid storing it in damp areas, and clean the club dividers from time to time.

Q. How do I know if a golf bag will fit my specific set of clubs?

A. Most golf bags are designed to accommodate standard club sizes. However, you’re welcome to bring your set into Golf 360 and test our bags out for yourself.
