The Best Golf Travel Covers
The Best Golf Travel Covers is a short golf blog post that looks at the different styles of travel bags available for golfing holidays.
I have seen many golfers travelling with their golf clubs without a travel cover. The risk of damaging your clubs is a lot higher without one.
There is no guarantee that your clubs will survive with travel cover but claiming for damages on your insurance is a lot easier.
As a keen golfer that likes to travel around playing courses in different countries, it is important that my travel bag is of good quality.
But when I look for a good travel bag, What am I looking for?
My suggestions on what to look out for are.
My Top Suggestions.
- Make sure that the travel bag is big enough. There is no point in buying something cheap and finding that your equipment doesn’t fit.
Top Tip: Take your equipment with you to the shop to try out sizes.
- Check that the bag is on good solid wheels, (not cheap plastic wheels). It will be quite heavy and you don’t want to carry it around large airports.
Top Tip: Make sure that the wheels look like the ones that you find on inline skates. Any other kinds tend to break in transit.
- The bag should have ample padding, especially around the clubhead area. There should be some solid area on the sole of the bag to help stop any ripping.
Top Tip: Wrapping a large towel through the clubheads will help a great deal to add protection.
- Rigid plastic travel bags are not recommended as they tend to break easily.
You may want to consider buying a Golf Club Rigid Arm for extra support & protection. One of these arms will cost you approx. 30 pounds.
Top Tip: A cheap wooden handled sweeping brush will do the same job.
Those are really good points if you are on the lookout for a great travel bag for your clubs.
Prices on travel bags differ a lot. You can spend anything between 80 pounds to 500 pounds on travel bags.
You should be aiming at spending around 200 – 300 pounds for a decent travel bag. This will last you a few years but it will all depend on the amount of travelling that you do.
