What You Need To Know When You Travel And Golf

By: Mike Pedersen

Golf travel bags are designed for golfers who are taking their equipment with them on a trip. Nowadays more places are advertising holidays that are specially designed for people who play golf. Whether you stay in the United States when you are on vacation or whether you decide to go somewhere like Spain, an increasing number of travel agents offer golfing holiday packages. If you decide that you are going to have a golfing vacation this year, or if you have been chosen to play in an away game, then you might want to think about golf travel bags.

Just as with any other golfing bag, golf travel bags come in a variety of styles, shapes, colors and sizes so you should be able to find just what you need. A lot will depend on how far you are going to travel, how much use you are going to make of the bag, and what it will cost. You may find that there is a wide variation in the cost of these travel bags so it is well worth doing some research and shopping around before you buy. If you are travelling long distance and need to fly to your destination then you will need a good, strong bag that will protect your golf clubs.

When you go on an aeroplane then it is advisable to get yourself a golf travel bag that has hard sides. Hard travel cases have been designed to withstand any unusual impact and this is necessary if you want to protect your clubs from damage. However, a hard sided case is not going to be a cheap item so it is well worth looking around your local stores to see if they are offering discounts on old stock. Make sure, if you decide to go for a discounted bag that it is strong enough to protect your clubs when they are in the hold of a plane, or being thrown around by careless airport staff.

If you are only travelling a short distance than you will probably be ok with a soft sided travel case for your golfing equipment. Most of these have reinforced sides, waterproofing, padding and straps to protect and secure your clubs. These bags tend to look like a large but ordinary travel bag or a large duffle bag. Although a soft sided bag will be cheaper than one with hard sides, it is still not a cheap item so it is a good idea to shop around and compare prices before you go out and buy one.
