Some golf bags are specially designed to hold your clubs secure in the bag during normal use, and these will at least provide some degree of protection when traveling in that the clubs will not move around as much as those held loosely in an ordinary golf bag. However, most golfers do not have this option, and rely either on themselves driving carefully, on baggage handlers being gentle (?) or aircraft hold baggage not moving much during the flight. Would you feel happy relying on any one of these, especially if your clubs cost a few hundred, or even a few thousand, dollars?
