Best Golf Trolley Bags

Finding the right golf bag could help you make the difference when it comes to organising and planning your game. If your equipment is well protected and efficiently stored, you can focus on what really matters – playing the game.

Whether you use a push or electric trolley, you’ll likely be looking for one of the best golf trolley bags on the market – a design that is robust and stable, easy to lift and sits well on its back and base. Other features to consider will be, the level of storage, the ease of access to clubs and accessory/apparel pockets. Additionally the best golf bags often provide water resistance and extra protection for valuables.

You also want a bag that is super-stable on the trolley, will not cause the trolley to pull to one direction or to topple in any way. There’s nothing more annoying than having to constantly re-arrange a bag on a trolley so a perfect fit is what you’re after.

Big Max Aqua Sport 3 Cart Bag

Big Max Aqua Sport 3 Cart Bag, waterproof golf bag, golf cart bag

+ Ample storage with nine waterproof pockets
+ Extra large cooler pocket
– Slightly more substantial than some cart bags, so not as light

This cart bag offering has the same I-Dry waterproofing found on other Big Max bags and provides excellent protection to the elements. A 14-way top has full length dividers to prevent club crowding and nine total pockets mean you can load this bag up with whatever you need for a round of golf.

We found the extra large cooler pocket placed low and on the front of the bag especially useful for carrying plenty of liquid on a hot day and the three grab handles made manoeuvring the bag very easy too. A great bag for organisation and style.

This stylish bags still provides plenty of storage, which is very impressive considering how lightweight it is.

+ Sleek looks
– On the pricey side

TaylorMade has used a very lightweight waterproof material to make its Storm Dry cart bag and that makes this a great option for a bag you can easily transport to and from the golf club, even when full of gear.

As well as the 14-way top with three full-length dividers, this bag has its own dedicated putter well to keep your putter protected away from other clubs.

+ Innovative top design that protects and organises clubs
+ Full waterproof
– Slightly heavier than others

The Motocaddy Protekta cart bag features an innovative top design that gives each club a distinct and separate area to sit in the bag. The 14-way divider reduces noise and holds each individual club in place to prevent club heads crashing together. Its an incredibly clever and satisfying design feature that protects your clubs and keeps them neat and tidy in the bag.

Its not just the 14-way divider that makes this a great bag though as the Protekta bag acts as a sort of ‘best of’ from Motocaddy’s range. It has all the waterproof features of the best-selling Dry-Series bag, meaning 100% waterproof protection, and it also features the premium Japanese YKK zips that can be opened smoothly with just one hand.

Sure its a bit heavier than some of the lightweight cart bag options, but at 3.1kg with all the features and pocket space, this is an innovative and premium cart bag that will protect your clubs and your belongings in the bag too.

Titleist StaDry 14 Trolley Bag

Titleist StaDry 14 Trolley Bag, titleist golf bag, golf cart bag,

+ Waterproof
+ Lightweight
– Not the easiest to carry if you do need to use the single strap.

The Titleist StaDry has been a popular bag for a few seasons now and it’s easy to see why as it performs from a practical perspective on a number of levels.

Firstly, StaDry waterproof technology will help you keep your equipment dry in wet conditions – It’s made from a waterproof fabric and the zips are seam sealed.

It also offers excellent, managed storage with 14-way top divider plus dedicated putter well, and seven generous pockets. There are large apparel pockets as well as spaces for accessories and valuables.

It’s been designed to sit snugly on a trolley, and we found that it does just that. The weight is well distributed to ensure it doesn’t shift going over bumps or across slopes. There’s a useful channel for strapping the bag down to a trolley or cart.

The pockets are all easily accessible when the bag is sitting on a trolley.

It weighs just 2.7kg and is easy to lift out of a car and onto a trolley thanks to the well-designed grab handles.

+ Two well placed grab handles and large putter well
+ Clever pocket organisation for easy access
– Only available in a few colours

The Wilson Exo II cart bag is a lightweight and feature-packed bag that is well built and reasonably priced for cart bags of this size.

The two integrated grab handles at the top of the bag make it very practical and easy to lift on and off trolleys and in and out of cars. The 14-way top and 14 full-length dividers leaves plenty of space for a full set of clubs and we love the attention to detail of the larger putter well, which will accommodate all putters including those with larger grips on.

A seam sealed, waterproof valuables pocket is just one of a host of pockets for apparel, drinks, balls and tees and there are even some exterior straps to keep tees on for easy and quick access on the course. A well thought out, practical and lightweight cart bag for all year round use.

Cobra Golf Ultralight Trolley Bag

+ Easy access pockets
+ 14-way divider
– Not fully waterproof

We were impressed with the pass-through channel for a cart strap on the Cobra Golf Ultralight Trolley Bag. It means the bag can be secured strongly to a trolley without compromising access to any of the 13 pockets.

Those pockets are ample and allow for excellent levels of organisation and equipment separation. Two large apparel pockets provide buckets of room while two fleece-lined valuables pockets and an insulated cooler pocket provide innovative storage solutions.

The 14-way top with full length dividers and oversized putter well protect clubs and allow for easy access.

As the name would suggest, it’s a lightweight bag at just 2.4kg and the top grab handles make it easy to lift and move around.

If you’re looking for maximum storage and easy access to all your kit, this is one to consider.

What to look out for when buying a trolley bag

What are some of the factors you need to consider when picking out a good trolley bag? Well we have taken a look below.

Trolley/Cart – It sounds like an obvious thing to say but if you want to invest in a good trolley bag then you should also have a good trolley to use too. A lot of the bags designed these days, including the models above, will only work best on well designed trolleys, not the basic ones you can rent from golf clubs. Therefore take a look at our best electric golf trolleys, and best push carts guides.

Features – Next up you should think about the features that are important to you. Do you want the bag to have 14-way dividers, or lots of storage, or little details like valuables pockets? It is worth thinking about what you find important during your golf experiences because many different models offer varying types of feature.

Ease of Use – This is a big one, how easy is the bag to use? Here we find one of the most important things is how easy is it to move around, from the car boot, to the trolley and vice-versa. Thankfully many of the models above have been designed to be incredibly lightweight and therefore easy to manoeuvre. Additionally how simple is it to lock into the trolley, and how how simple is it to access the storage pockets? All things to think about.

Waterproofing – Given how much golf we all play, chances are we will get caught in the rain every now and again, which makes waterproofing very important. Some models, like the Motocaddy Dry Series, and TaylorMade Storm Dry, have been specifically designed for this and some models are better than others so be aware of this before you buy.

Price – Last but not least price is a factor to consider. If you want to go for an ultra-premium design, there are models out there, but if you want a bag at a cheaper price point then there are also models for that too.
