Golf Stand Bags
Your search for “golf stand bags” probably means you most often walk the links during your rounds of golf. You need a golf bag that not only will protect your equipment, but also not negatively impact your game by increasing your fatigue or discomfort. Golf stand bags are the answer to transporting your golf clubs and balls, markers, tees, towel, golf glove, possibly an umbrella, a GPS unit, a thermos with coffee or perhaps a water bottle, sunscreen, and a jacket or sweater.

The designers at Sun Mountain Golf introduced the first golf stand bags in 1986. The revolutionary design, a simple carry golf bag with legs that extended automatically when you sat the bag down changed the golf bag design industry. Fortunately for those golfers who walk the course carrying their own golf clubs, the retractable legs are now standard features on designs from many golf bag manufacturers. At IN THE HOLE! Golf you will be able to select a number of different golf stand bags designs from Sun Mountain, Ogio Golf, Bag Boy, Bennington Golf, Club Glove, TaylorMade Golf, RJ Sports, Tour Edge, Burton Golf, Paragon Golf, Datrek Golf, and Nike Golf.
If you have ever carried your clubs in regular non golf stand bags, you will appreciate not having to stoop over to choose a club, worrying about clubs staying dry while lying on the ground or being damaged, or straining while bending over to pick up or put down the golf bag. From the early days in the 1980’s, golf stand bags have evolved to lightweight, ergonomically functional bags that hold more than enough clubs and accessories, yet at the same time are cost efficient. Most golf stand bags are double-strapped for perfect balance upon your shoulders. Carrying a non-balanced golf bag that puts more weight on one side is a main culprit for stress and overuse injuries for many golfers. In addition to the double-strap, another nice feature of most golf stand bags is they are molded to fit right around your body for added comfort.
Although you might assume that the spring-loaded legs of golf stand bags should come out with ease every time you stand your bag up to get your clubs, you really want a quality brand that can stand up to the inevitable wear and tear of many rounds of golf. Since the legs are the major feature of this type of golf bag, check out those legs and learn about "leg-catch syndrome," read any reviews about the particular model you are considering, and talk to other golfers who have golf stand bags of their own. Ogio is one brand that sought to eliminate so-called "leg-catch syndrome," by developing their Arc Lite Stand System.
While you are learning about golf stand bags, consider what your price range is. If you do not play much golf, you may want to go with a less expensive bag. If you are someone who plays multiple times in a week, you should consider golf stand bags that are in the mid price range or higher. Some folks feel that there is big jump from the cheapest bags to the mid level price golf stand bags. As with most things, you will get what you pay for, so consider your game and what features you need. All golf stand bags will have a number of pockets for you to keep equipment and valuables in. Depending upon the golf stand bags design, you will find zippered pockets, large and small, and some zipper-less pockets. These pockets hold items such as gloves, tees, pencils, sharpies, and sunscreen, possibly a lightweight jacket, rain gear, or even shoes, golf balls, cell phone, bottled water etc. Some models even have an insulated beverage pocket to keep your drinks cold in the summer heat.
Since you will be carrying your bag, weight is another important feature. Golf stand bags are considered lightweight when compared to a cart golf bag. Yet there is quite a range in weight among the different models from under three pounds (2009 Sun Mountain Swift X Stand Bag), to the heavier 7.2 pound (2009 Ogio Nexos Stand Bag), and everything in between, so be sure to check. It’s also nice to know that when you choose not to walk, most golf stand bags are designed to use on push/pull carts or electric carts.
Each golf bag manufacturer has their unique club organizer system. Besides the separate sections which keep your clubs organized, some models have additional unique features such as the Bagboy small club locks which hold the clubs tight, preventing them from banging against each other and making noise as you walk. A full bag rain shield, GPS range finder pocket with easy view window, lumbar pad, a velour-lined valuables pocket are just some of the other features offered by various golf stand bag manufacturers.
For the junior players, Sun Mountain with their 2009 Sun Mountain Swift Jr. golf Stand Bag for junior clubs, has not forgotten you.
