Some of negatives associated with soft-style golf travel bags are mobility and protection. Soft bags usually do not roll as easily as hard cases. Also, these bags do not offer same protection as hard cases. Your club heads are especially vulnerable in a soft-style bag.
If you choose a soft-style golf travel bag, I highly recommend that you pick up a Stiff Arm accessory. This will protect your club heads in event of a direct impact to top of your bag.
The best soft-style bags can cost anywhere from $120 - $300.
Hard Case Golf Travel Bags
This style of travel bag encompasses your bag and club. They provide highest amount of protection but do not have space for golf “pack rat”.
Hard cases are a great choice for golfer who travels by air to most golf vacation spots. This style provides most protection and highest security for your golf clubs. Unlike other styles of golf travel bags, airlines will often cover any damage incurred when your clubs are in a hard case travel bag.
Hard cases take up more room than other styles when it comes to storage. They also do not hold all of your golf gear. For golfer who plans more trips by automobile, hard cases might not make as much sense as hybrids or soft-covers.
Hard case golf travel bags average $130 with top of line cases costing around $300.
Now that you have a little more insight into golf travel bags, you will be able to choose right bag for your golf travel and golf vacations. Remember to think about type and frequency of your golf travel, how much protection you need for your golf clubs, and what type of budget you have for a golf travel bag.
Choose wisely. Protect your investment. And, most of all, enjoy your golf vacation!
