BEST GOLF STAND BAGS FOR 2021

Our picks for the best golf stand bags are engineered with the walker in mind. These lightweight designs can help reduce fatigue so you can stay fresh from the first drive to the final putt. When choosing a stand bag, look for comfortable, padded straps that won’t wear you down during your round. Also, make sure the bag has enough pocket space to fit your golf accessories and personal essentials like your wallet and phone. Since walkers don’t have the luxury of the cart cupholder, consider a bag that has an insulated pocket for a cold drink, too. Learn more about our top-rated stand bags and find the right fit for your game.

BEST GOLF CART BAGS FOR 2021

If you prefer to ride, or if you walk with a golf push cart, you’ll be well served by one of these best cart bags for 2021. These bags give you easy access to your clubs and accessories from the “strapped-in” position on your cart. When you roll up to the tee, everything you need will be within reach. Unlike stand bags, cart bags do not have self-supporting legs, and they typically have only one shoulder strap. If you carry your clubs on occasion, a stand bag may be your best option. But when you’re riding or using a push cart, a cart bag can make your round much more convenient and enjoyable. Learn more about our top picks below.
