Best Golf Travel Bags

Published:

Which are the best golf travel bags? A critical piece of equipment to protect your clubs and make them easy to transport on your next golf break.

Travelling with your beloved (and expensive) golf clubs is not without risk. There is always a small chance golf equipment can be lost or damaged by the air travel companies, especially if they don’t have the correct labelling and protection.

A well-made golf travel bag can ease those fears a great deal and the likes of TaylorMade, Callaway, J Lindeberg, Puma and Benross are just some of the big brands who make excellent options.

A good measure of the strength of a material is the denier rating (D). Anything above 1,000 puts it in the elite level when it comes to toughness, making it ideal for protecting your precious gear. And the beauty of a golf travel bag is that they’re large enough for you to fit plenty of clothes, shoes and accessories in, too.

Of course, if you’re in the market for a golf travel bag then you’re probably in the market for a golf break, and we can help with that, too.
