Buying a travel golf bag is very important in protecting your clubs. Whether you are a travelling professional using your bag every week, or you just want to purchase a travel bag for an occasion, there are a few important factors that need to be taken into account before purchasing a travelling bag.
The first thing that you should be after is a light travel bag. This will save you a lot of money and discomfort when travelling through airports. All good carry bags will have their weight posted on them in the shop or online. All of the good travel bags will be less than five kilograms, but these may cost a bit more. You can still get light discount bags, but you will want to make sure that there is a guarantee on these bags.
Obviously, when buying something, the most important factor is usually the price. Most people will have a certain idea of how much they want to spend.
If you are after a good quality bag, you will be looking in excess of $100 US, but if you want a discount bag, you can pick one up for about $50 US.
Looking for an online bag can save you a lot of money if you don’t mind it being second-hand. Auction sites are great ways to find top quality second-hand bags. Sometimes, certain outlets may throw in golf accessories for free if you are buying a top quality golf bag.
What brand to buy?
There are so many top golf brands to choose from when buying a travel golf bag. Depending on what you are after, you can sometimes save a lot of money.
Price of brands
The most well known brands, such as Titleist, Nike, Cleveland, and Taylor Made will be a bit more expensive than the less known brands, just because they carry the logo. It is just as wise getting a lesser brand for a smaller price, so long as the quality and workmanship is still top quality. Have a look online and compare the different brands for weight, space, guarantees, and then make a decision on what factors are most important to you.
