Overall Best Golf Bag of 2022 — Sun Mountain 3.5 LS Golf Stand Bag

If lightweight, good-looking, and functional is the name of the game, we love the Sun Mountain 3.5 LS!

Sun Mountain has been at the golf equipment and gear game for a while, and they've established themselves as makers of highly functional and reliable golf bags.

The 3.5 LS is designed for the golfer who loves the popular 2.5+ but wants a few more features.

Like the 2.5+, the 3.5 LS is constructed with lightweight nylon fabric, high-strength-to-weight plastic, and carbon fiber legs.

Adding a pound to the design provides several more pockets, a comfort-grip handle, and an updated strap system.

It comes in 7 colors and a black left-hander.

Ladies should check out the Sun Mountain 14-Way Women's Stand Bag.

Best Golf Bag with Cooler Pocket — Cobra Ultralight Pro+ Stand Bag

Ultralight Pro+ is designed for versatility and fun!

It's packed with all the storage you might need, including an oversized insulated cooler pocket that fits up to eleven cans of your favorite beverage (guess you have to drink one in the parking lot!).

And at only 5.0LBS, it's still designed to be carried.

Made from 100% polyester, this golf bag has 9 Pockets including a magnetic velour-lined range finder pocket located on the apparel pocket for easy access.

The Stable Leg Design provides a streamlined aesthetic and the lower CG yields a more stable bag.

It's good times all around, every round with the Ultralight Pro+!

Best Golf Travel Bag — Sun Mountain Kube

The Kube, Sun Mountain's newest travel bag, is created with hardy, ballistic style fabric in combination with plastic half-shells.

When not in use, the Kube folds down to 9" x 13" x 14.5" for storage. Internal dimensions when in use are 52" x 14" x 14".

Along with the plastic shells, dense foam padding through the top of the bag protects clubs.

Plus the Kube weighs only 6.8 ponds!

Price: $269.99

Best Looking Golf Bag — Sun Mountain 2022 VX Men's Golf Stand Bag

Not only is the VX golf bag made from durable, easy-to-clean sailcloth, it has several added cosmetic enhancements like climbing rope handles, an anodized carbiner, ladder locks, and helicopter legs—that give this bag a sharp look and may even leave some bag envy in your wake.

Sailcloth is known to be more water and abrasion-resistant than many fabrics commonly used in outdoor gear.

Keep in mind, the VX weighs five pounds, which get you seven pockets including a full-length gear pocket, two velour-lined valuables pockets, and a beverage pouch.

A roomy 9” top with full-length dividers keeps your bag unclutterd, and a matching rainhood is included.

Most Functional Golf Bag — Ping Hoofer Stand Bag

Looking for a fantastic all-around bag that has tons of storage at a reasonable price? The Ping Hoofer might be the golf bag for you.

It says something that it's been a fan favorite for a while. Some reasons why:

  • It's lightweight
  • Easy to use
  • 11 strategic pockets
  • Innovative back puck for fast single-strap conversion

Lightest Golf Bag — Sun Mountain 2.5+

At less than 3 pounds, the Sun Mountain 2.5+ looks and feels good!

Designed for the avid walking golfer, the 2.5+ redefines the features that can be offered in an ultralight golf bag.

It has contoured, high-density foam shoulder straps for carry comfort, a roomy, 9.0” top and six pockets including a beverage pouch.

All of this and it still weighs under three pounds!

Best Cheap Golf Bag — Wilson W Carry Bag

If you're looking for value and performance in your golf bag over cool and trendy, the Wilson W will likely get it done.

Doesn't this sound good: padded double 4-point strap system with hip pads, a 5-way top, three integrated handles, a paddle-activated stand base, 7 versatile pockets, and towel, glove and umbrella holders.

And at a third to a fourth less than a lot of bags—$80—it might sound even better.


Best Walking Golf Bag — Titleist Linksmaster

This elusive white whale of golf bags is much talked about and hard to find. Evidently, it can only be procured through pro shops.

This good-looking, high-end golf carry bag is an investment, but seems to live up to the hype.

It has a soft, supple texture—heavy on style and light on logo. With plentiful deep pockets and small vented ones, it has a three-way top and dividers that go all the way down.

Well-padded straps, a stand with a snap, and zipper in the long apparel pocket so you can retrieve things without unpacking everything, let you know this bag was well-designed.

Weighing in at just over 5 lbs, you're going to want to throw on both straps—if you can get your hands on one.

Best Ladies' Golf Bag — Sun Mountain 2022 3.5 14-Way Stand Bag

One inch shorter than men's bags to better accomodate women's clubs, the Sun Mountain 3.5 14-Way is loaded with features and style.

Weighing just under 5 lbs., this 3.5 women's stand bag has ten pockets that include a water-resistant, velour-lined valuables pocket, full-length apparel pocket, hydration pouch, and multiple accessory pockets.

Fourteen individual dividers run the full length of the bag to organize and protect clubs.

The E-Z Lite Dual Strap System is easy to get on and off, and the carry straps are made with thick, high-density foam that is contoured to be wider at the top of the shoulder for carry comfort.

Grab handles are sewn into the strap as a carry-assist, and this bag is available in four color combinations.


Best Cart Golf Bag — Sun Mountain Eco-Lite  

Full-sized and lightweight, the Eco-Lite Cart Bag makes a perfect cart bag.

Made with a material manufactured by Repreve, a company that uses recycled materials to produce performance fabrics, this bag is feature-packed.

It offers eleven pockets with fourteen individual dividers that run the full length of the bag to organize and protect clubs—and still weighs under six pounds.

Need a golf bag for a push cart?

We highly recommend Sun Mountain Sync designed specifically for use on push carts. Built to fit carts, all pockets are forward-facing and accessible when the bag is on a cart.

What to Look for in a Golf Bag

What's the best golf bag for you? The answer, of course, is a highly personal one. We recommend you start by considering the following:

  • Are you a golfer who carries, pushes, or rides? A stand bag will likely work for all preferences. But a cart bag is generally not made to lug around the course on your shoulder.
  • Is storage a factor?  
  • What's your style? Vintage, modern, minimalistic? 
  • Are you looking for tactical, trendy, perhaps both?
  • What's your budget?

Once you have a list of your personal preference, shopping for the perfect bag for you will be much easier. Check out our filter at the top of the page where we've sorted our golf bags by types, brands, and styles.


How to Organize Golf Bag

A bag could have as few as three sections and as many as 14, one for every club allowed.

Put your woods and long irons in the back section(s).

Put your short irons, including wedges, in the front.

Designate a spot for your putter. You bag might have a special tube or attachment on the side of the bag designed for that purpose.

Store your golf balls in one of the deep zippered pockets. Tees, green-repair tool, spike wrench and ball markers should go in a smaller zippered pocket.

Put your gloves in a mesh pocket or in one of the smaller zippered pockets.

The long pocket that runs the length of your golf bag is for rain gear.

If you've got an insulated pocket, that's the ideal spot for any beverages.

Got snacks? They go in the pocket where they won't get crushed.

How Many Clubs Go in a Golf Bag?

Fourteen is the official number of clubs allowed in a golf bag when we're talking the rules of golf.

You can have fewer, of course.

So why 14 golf clubs?

The limit was basically imposed to regulate the number of clubs players can bring in play which in turn make players become more creative with course maneuvers. But also:

  • It keeps the golf bag luggable (imagine more!).
  • It keeps the costs down (14 is already expensive enough).
  • In short: It's keeps the game more sportsman-like.

If you're wondering if the putter counts, it does.

So what are these 14 clubs allowed in your golf bag?

The standard 12 clubs in many golf bags are:

  • 3 woods—driver, 3-wood, and 5-wood
  • 8 irons—3-9 iron and pitching wedge
  • Putter

The last two clubs of the 14 come down to player preference. You can add a hybrid driver for the fairway or a lob wedge and a sand wedge.


Can You Get a Golf Bag Stand Attachment?

There are stand bag attachments out there.

But we would recommend that you purchase a stand bag out right.

They're versatile for how you want to play and there are so many different styles avaialable from 14-way to lightweight to leather and much more!

Head up to our filter at the top of the page to shop stand bags on PlayBetter.com.

Leather Golf Bag — Sun Mountain Leather Men's Cart Bag  

Distinguished by its belly pocket, this gorgeous Leather Cart Bag is designed for cart use but at five pounds it could just as easily be carried.

Made from 100% premium leather, the leather-wrapped, 9” top has four full-length dividers that prevent your clubs from tangling.

Choose from five colors.

Lift-assist handles are built in to the top and bottom of the bag.
