Head to your nearest big-box golf retail store, and you’ll find an incredible array of carry bags available. Arguably more than should exist.

Players have choices to select from carry bags from the latest categories that include those weighing around 2 pounds, which look more like a quiver than anything else, to more full-featured standard bags. Our reviews focus on full-featured bags that can be carried, used with a push cart, or thrown on back of an electric cart. Even within this family the selection can vary in weight, number of club compartments, shoulder strap systems, pockets, and additional accessories/features. To further confuse the matter, some bags carrying different brands clearly came off the same manufacturing line, and as such you can find nearly the same bag at different price points (ahh the power of marketing)!
