Best travel bag / case for golf traveling

11 posts in this topic

Seems like I'm going to start traveling for business soon internationally and I would

like to take my clubs with me. I have a Sunmountain Four 5 stand bag.

What's the best carrying bag to protect my clubs so that they won't have the slightest banging or pressure weight on them?

I was told to get the CLub Glove last stand bag + the stiff stick that looks like a mushroom.

But when I checked, it's $300 AND it's a soft bag...

Another retailer told me to get the molded and 50% cheaper samsonite.

Well, Any suggestions would be very nice

I have used my Cargo Golf Pro 700 around 20 times for golf trips.  The Pro 700 is an older model, can find it on ebay used for around $50.  The new 750 model is around $190.  The Pro 700 is a simple, compact design that does a good job protecting clubs (hard construction).  Because the Cargo Golf Pro is all hard construction, the airlines have never had me sign a waiver--which I had to do with a previous soft bag.  The compact, minimalist design meets my needs.   Because I only carry one large headed wood (driver), I have no trouble fitting the rest of my clubs in there (including my belly putter).  No trouble fitting in balls, tees, sunscreen, toothpaste, and other basic golf travel supplies.  Not enough room for golf shoes--usually wear trail running shoes on golf trips.   Can use with golf carts and push carts, but cumbersome to carry on your back.  Very convenient and functional--sometimes when I return from my golf trips, I just use the Cargo Golf Pro as my regular bag for a while. http://www.amazon.com/Cargo-Golf-Pro-Travel-Cover/dp/B000AYL2FS

If you carry a driver and 3 wood or want a travel bag that can hold golf shoes also, take a look at Club Glove's offerings

I wouldn’t carry it.

It comes complete with two roller-blade like wheels… so one is able either to pull it or push it. It really doesn’t take up much more space than the bag and clubs – so no – I don’t think it’s too big.

As the advertisement indicates, it is constructed from molded military grade PE and the locks are TSA approved. It’s essentially like a hard plastic coffin for your golf clubs. I recently returned from a vacation in Aruba and my clubs are in perfect condition – the case itself takes some abuse, but not the clubs.

after searching around and combing past the marketting ploys, I'm thinking of the CLubgliders Meridian from Sun Mountain and perhaps add the stiff shaft from club glove into it.

Anyone know about how good this travel bag is? Looks sturdier than club glove last bag and has 4 wheels.

A friend at work has one we call R2-D2.  It is a hard case on the top and around the bottom, but soft in the middle.  It works out well because when clubs are not in it, it can collapse on itself to save room.  The problem with some of the harder cases especially is that they can too big to get in a car, expecially with other luggage.  I have never used it, but he says it works great and has never had a problem.

Thanks for the vouch, Erik.

Now I feel 100% better about getting it.

Tough to do research, since no one has clubglider and no store has it either.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      Black Mass
      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
