Not been a topic for a couple years so going again. I have to fly clubs to NZ. Never had to do this before. What are suggestions for a travel bag? Don’t have a tour or big cart bag so no need to be massive. Won’t be doing it a lot so don’t need a lifetime guarantee but happy to pay a bit for quality
Sun mountain? Ogio? Other?

Are you going to carry it ( stand bag) or use a trolley/ cart?

 

I have a pencil case design for a 1/2 set of clubs that I use when travelling. The down side is that it gets wet when you play it on the grass.


I can spell reasonably well, even if in American at times. I cannot type well , so please look for the key I intended to use within one key of the strange one I used.

I have a stand bag. I want a travel bag to put it in for a flight. Sorry I didn’t make that very clear.

I bought a Pro FX bag from GCO for a trip recently, but i can't see that model anymore which doesn't really help you. This one looks reasonable, https://www.golfbox....el-cover-black/

No pockets, but to be honest, i didnt use the outside pockets on mine. I put my shoes and jackets in the main compartment or the golf bag pockets instead. Worked well.

 

 

The one thing i highly recommend is getting a 'support arm' to prevent damage. https://www.golfbox....gear-bag-shaft/

It has a strap which you can wrap the long clubs closer to the arm.


No one tells my caddy Kiwi that he is a f#$%^*g pr1ck!!

I bought a brandname (Callaway?  Who recalls) travel cover off gumtree for about $50.  I had a super cheap non-padded one without wheels before that.  it did the job but it didn't do anything to make life easier.

 

Getting the better quality one was quite a bit better - I put the cover on the top of the golf bag and pack shoes in the top of the travel bag around the clubs and carry my clothing in carry on.  The bag ends up quite heavy, so having wheels is very useful.

 

Would also strongly recommend you get a stiff-arm insert to put in your golf bag - aimed to prevent the clubs being bent/broken.  I have never had any troubles of damage to clubs, but gives me some peace of mind.  They cost about $50.

Also, check Catch of the Day for cheap deals on travel bags.

After doing this TWICE (once when the lovely Beef wasn't around to help me out with it), I would definitely recommend using a combination lock.

Club Glove The Last Bag - have had mine for about 20yrs, and coupled with a mandatory stiff-arm, absolute trouble free travel.

 

The airlines managed to destroy about four bag covers before the Club Glove. It is bulletproof but definitely more expensive than most of the other options. 

 

Mygolfspy did a feature on travel covers which is worth a read.

I've read the article on one site that super light bags soon come into the market. If I found the article i'll posr it here. By the way, what kind of bags do you prefer :-)
