At IN THE HOLE! Golf there are three basic types of travel golf bags available: hardcover or hard sided golf travel bags, soft sided golf travel bags, and hybrid golf travel bags. Some folks consider hybrid golf travel bags as a variation of hard sided golf travel bags because their design tends to be a combination of a soft travel bag with a hard case top. Both hard sided and hybrids are good for air travel. However, if you want the maximum protection, hard sided golf travel bags are the way to go. Just be aware that a hard sided golf travel bag takes up more space and may be inconvenient to carry because of its bulk and weight. Fortunately the manufacturers of hard sided golf travel bags have added wheels to their bases to make airport as well as general maneuvering easier.
Some airlines will cover damages to your golf equipment if you use hard sided golf travel bags. Ask your airline when you buy your ticket if they will cover any damage incurred if clubs are shipped in a hard sided golf case.

Depending upon the design, hard sided golf travel bags can accommodate anywhere from a typical fully loaded golf bag to larger pro staff golf bags. However, check each hard sided golf travel bags product page to see the maximum bag diameter capacity and club length. The Cargo Golf X2 hybrid travel case has an accommodating design. For a custom club length fit, the hard case expands in one-inch increments up to 51.5'', accommodating drivers up to 48” long. When not holding your golf bag and other golf accessories, the X2 Hybrid collapses down to 24” for convenient storage in your hotel room or at home. Another manufacturer who recognizes the storage issues that occur with these large travel cases is Sweet Spot Golf. They have developed golf travel bag designs where the top half of the hard case can be conveniently removed, inverted, and then slid into the bottom half of the case saving considerable space.
