Best Women's Golf Bags

When women step out on the course, they want one of the best golf bags for them. Firstly, it must be a comfortable companion in a style and color that suits them and with the potential to organize equipment so they know exactly where everything is for quick access.

If you carry your clubs, then the weight of the bag and how comfortably it sits on your back is an important consideration. Whereas a cart bag must be easy to lift and fit securely on your trolley without any twisting. 

Women might want to chop and change between seasons and some bags are dual purpose, designed to carry or use on a trolley. As such, we recommend also checking out our posts on the best lightweight golf bags (opens in new tab) and the best golf trolley bags (opens in new tab)

You should also consider the ease of accessibility to your clubs and whether the amount of storage is sufficient. The good news is that many of the latest bags have waterproof features to protect your gear from wet weather and come with a matching rain hood as standard. Below are some of the best women's golf bags on the market.

Styling will not be to everyone’s taste

Available in six standout colors and weighing in at just 4.5lbs, this stand bag is true to its name. It is designed so that women can carry their clubs in comfort with quick release shoulder straps and a COOLFlow foam hip pad. The bag’s 5-way top has full-length dividers to keep clubs secure, the grab handle makes for easy transportation, and the EASYFlex base allows exceptional stability when the legs are activated.

It has no fewer than 8 pockets including an oversized apparel pocket, one that fits a large bottle, another for valuables, and a customisable ball pocket. The Cobra Ultralight is such a good model for both men and women, that it is also one of our selections of the best golf stand bags (opens in new tab) on sale right now.

Legs don't fully retract when being carried

The Players 4 Plus Stadry bag from Titleist is a high-quality, stylish and versatile bag that features a tour-inspired, low-profile top cuff, four full-length dividers and a new premium double strap for enhanced comfort and simplified adjustment while carrying. The new strap is noticeably more comfortable and is also self balancing, meaning your clubs stay upright with no chance of falling out when you’re walking.

The StaDry waterproof construction and the high-grade lightweight aluminium legs make for a practical bag in all conditions. The bag also features eight pockets, including an expandable full-length apparel pocket which we found held more than enough clothing. Other pockets include a new one exclusively for tees, a redesigned, larger beverage pocket and a quick-access accessories pocket with magnetic closure.

This bag feels incredibly sturdy and well made, with the new strap making it even more comfortable to carry. What's more, it features in nine colors, so there should be no problem finding a colorway that you like.

Three different color options are all fairly similar

For women that want the best of both worlds in a bag, one that can be carried or used on a trolley, then the HydroFlex is a great option and one of the best golf bags (opens in new tab) on the market.

It is unbelievably lightweight at a mere 2.2kg and made in a waterproof fabric with thermo sealed and heat-welded seams to protect gear from the elements. Along with the lightweight feel, there are also five full-length dividers that keep clubs adequately organised.

We see storage space in the five spacious pockets, which provide ample room for golfing accessories, as well as a beverage pouch and internal umbrella sleeve. There is also the quick-release, four-point, fully adjustable carry strap that provides ultimate comfort when carrying, or a trolley can take the strain thanks to the compatible Easilock base system.

Legs could extend further when in use

An all-rounder when it comes to balancing features while offering a comfortable and easy ride, the BR-D3 stand bag is a great option for any avid golfer. The bag itself is also a great value option for anyone not looking to spend a pretty penny on a new golf bag. That does mean it has a slightly stripped-back design, but it does come with eight pockets and compartments that give players enough space and storage to keep their clubs and equipment tucked away nicely. 

While the bag is not fully waterproof itself, it does come with a waterproof valuables pocket that will shelter your most precious belongings from the elements. Carrying the bag is a pleasure too, as it is one of the best lightweight golf bags around coming in at just 2kg. 

Its well-padded strap also helps to cushion your shoulders and disperse the weight of the bag around your back. While the lack of waterproofing may be a slight issue for some golfers, it doesn't take away from the functionality and practical benefits this bag can offer you around the course.

Straps are difficult to adjust

Another top-notch lightweight model is the Big Max Feather model, which, as the name suggests, is as light as a feather at just 1.4kg. Not only that, but we thought it looked good and offered a degree of simplicity with the five-way divider. 

Importantly, the stand is solid and does what it's supposed to and is easy to deploy on grounding, with the legs not drooping down while walking, which is a major pet peeve of ours. Admittedly the strap can be difficult to adjust but this is a minor complaint really, whereas the storage and pockets available really make this a good bag to consider. The integrated cooler pocket in particular was a nice touch.

Being water repellent, it also features in an array of colors, meaning there are a number of options available to suit your need and style.

Need a cart to use this bag

Sophisticated, elegant and practical. Just three words out of many we could use to describe the new TaylorMade Kalea Premier cart bag, a model that is one of the best on the market.

If you are the type of person who cares as much about the look of their golf bag as the performance then you'll love this stylish bag. It's made from a heathered nylon, with the waterproof protection coming from the fabric.

What's more, there's a 14-way divider that helps club organization, whilst the lightweight design is easy to lift in and out of the car. There are multiple pockets available, which can store your necessities, with the bag also featuring a soft-line valuables pocket to a thermal-lined cool pocket to keep your drink cold on a warm day.

More expensive than some in our list

There’s an awful lot to love about the Sun Mountain H2NO Lite cart bag, especially if you're a lady golfer or anyone looking for a lightweight but spacious option to fit on their trolley. 

For starters, there’s the fact that this bag is completely waterproof. You’ll notice how thick the nylon fabric feels - you could say it’s a cross between one of the best waterproof golf jackets and a tent, with a special coating on the surface meaning that rain water literally runs off the surface, making it one of the best waterproof golf bags we've tested in recent times.

At just 2.6kg when empty, it’s only a little heavier than lifting two bags of sugar - that’s incredibly lightweight. Even after you’ve added your clubs, balls, waterproofs, drink and accessories, it’s more than light enough for even the most fragile lady to lift. 

Lastly, the fun and fashionable berry color is very catching and there are actually nine vibrant colors to choose from, so you can pick from your favorite color.

On the bulkier side

Big Max is a brand that offers a wide range of excellent options, but the model which made our 2022 Editors Choice list is the Dri Lite Tour Cart Bag. The zips are fully waterproof, while the rest of the fabric used in construction is water repellent. In testing, we experienced no leaks when we put it through its paces on a wet day and you also get a handy five-year warranty too, which puts the mind at ease. 

It is a very smart design, almost Tour-like, and the space provided would rival the top professional bags as well. Nine large pockets provide more space than we could ever need, but we have no doubt some people will find a way to fill them. 

For a large tour bag weighing in at 2.4kg, it is surprisingly light, even when holding a full set of clubs. Transporting it is also easy, with two carry handles at the top and a heavy-duty handle at the front making it simple to move from car to cart.

Functional rather than super stylish

The PowaKaddy Dri Tech Cart Bag will keep your clubs and belongings dry in the most extreme weather conditions. Made from a lightweight Nylon fabric, it is waterproof to an impressive hydrostatic rating of over 10,000mm. If you’re not sure what that means – it’s a lot! As such, it should come as no surprise that this bag made our list of the best waterproof golf bags too.

For those who like ultimate club organization, the Dri Tech has you covered, as a 14-way top divider also makes way for a spacious putter well. The pockets are vast, meaning you’ll have room to store all your necessities, with the bag being incredibly lightweight.

It may not be the most striking in terms of design, but the PowaKaddy Dri Tech has a sleek sophistication and looks great sitting on a cart. It also features PowaKaddy’s Key Lock anti-twist system, which ensures the bag stays firmly in place throughout the round. Nobody likes to be fiddling with bag placement and straps when they should be focusing on their next shot.

Some bolder colour options would have been fun

Although there are more eye-catching cart bags on the market, the MacGregor 15-Series Water Resistant Cart Bag is certainly one of the more practical, with the bag being lightweight and easy to maneuver. 

Thanks to two over-moulded handles on the top of the bag, it means it can be easily adjusted once on the trolley. As well as the ease and comfort, the lightweight design is also shower proof, with the nine excellently placed pockets featuring water resistant zippers to keep your personal items dry in sharp downpours.   

The last point of interest are the 15 full length dividers that allow for easy club access. These dividers are lined and cushioned as well, so any graphite shafts are well nurtured as you roll over on the bumpiest of fairways or paths. We especially liked the “putter pit,” which is rubberised and houses the putter brilliantly.

Not as sleek as others in its category

Ping’s Traverse cart bag has been redesigned for 2022 and is now even lighter at just 5.5 pounds. This puts it amongst the lightest cart bags on the market. Featuring a 14-way top to help the organization of your clubs, there are also two putter wells to choose from, depending on where you want to position your putter in the bag.

The Traverse also excels from a storage standpoint as it has 11 total pockets, including full-length apparel pockets, a velour-lined valuables pocket, an insulated cooler pocket, and a rangefinder pocket. 

The Traverse’s strap-thru pass also keeps the bag securely on a cart without blocking access to any of the pockets, and there are six new color patterns for golfers to choose from. As a result, it is one of the best Ping golf bags money can buy.

One of the more expensive options

OGIO did not want to take a men’s bag and make it pink, so they have built this cart bag specifically for women in two modern and fashionable prints. Clubs can be accessed easily via the 14-way top and there is room for everything in a total of 15 pockets (8 of these are zippered). It is easy to transport using the two integrated handles and the adjustable single shoulder strap.

This female-friendly bag has a soft-lined valuables pocket with a hidden ring pocket, a marker holder, tee holder, Velcro glove patch and a quick-access pocket with a magnetic closure. We like it so much we also included it in our comprehensive best Ogio golf bags (opens in new tab) guide.

How we test golf bags

When it comes to our process of testing golf bags (opens in new tab), to put it simply we get brands to send us gear, or we buy it ourselves, and then we put the bags to the test out on the golf course. Most importantly though, manufacturers cannot pay for a good review because we tell it how we see it.

Every member of the Golf Monthly team are regular golfers and put bags to the test over a number of rounds and conditions.

As far as our methodology goes, if we say we have reviewed a product, that means we have done so properly. We also endeavour to use all the features on the golf bag, for example if the valuables pocket claims to be waterproof, we pour water on it to find out.

This comprehensive testing style is not just exclusive to golf bags either, we test using the same ethos and methodology across all golf gear.

What to consider when buying a golf bag

If you are looking for a new golf bag then there are several factors to consider. Let's get into those now.

Bag Type - First things first, what type of golf bag do you want? A stand bag? Or are you after a cart design or a pencil bag? Each type of bag will have positives and negatives so therefore we think it is important you know what type you are after before starting in-depth research. 

Stand bags are built for those who want to carry their clubs around the golf course which means factors like comfort and weight are very important. Stand bags also have to offer waterproofing as well as strength and robustness. The two negatives most associated with stand bags are they require more effort to use, and they usually don't offer as much storage as cart bags.

However, that being said there are several stand bags above that can also be used on golf carts as well so maybe that is a way of killing two birds with one stone.

Cart bags are for those who want to use golf carts on the golf course. If this is you, then you'll likely want a stable model that is not only easy to lift and move around, but also one that sits firmly on your cart. One big advantage we have found is that cart bags also tend to offer ample storage for accessories, apparel, valuables and all the other golf paraphernalia you might need during the round.

The main negative is they are just bulkier and have to be taken off the cart before and after the round, whereas stand bags offer a bit more freedom.

Storage - Once you know the above, storage is the next factor to consider. If you want a lot, then a cart bag may be the way to go because they tend to have larger pockets and also usually require less effort to use so you can store more in them if needed. 

Stand bags usually just house the essentials whereas pencil bags are very limited in this regard. In short, have a think about how much gear you want with you on the course. 

Waterproofing - If you live or golf somewhere that gets a lot of rain then this is a no-brainer really, get a bag that offers protection from the rain. Whereas if you don't, then this factor won't be as important. 

Weight - Across all types of bag, weight is important. Stand bags obviously have to be lightweight because players will be carrying them on their backs and shoulders all day, whilst cart bags should also have a degree of lightness too so they are easy to manoeuvre on the golf course, and from the car to the cart itself.

Looks - Looking good is also something to consider. Many of the models above have different color designs and brands have clearly tried to create good-looking models so we would recommend scouting around and seeing which models you like the look of. 

Budget - Our final factor to consider is of course price. There are golf bags at every single price point so if you want to go for a premium cart model you can, or if you want a cheap stand bag you can also do that too.

Arguably, a golf bag is the most important part of your golf equipment, with it being the item that stores all of your clubs, accessories and apparel. If you have a bag that doesn't perform, then you will spend most of your game focusing on that, as opposed to the golf you should be playing.

What makes a good golf bag?

There are a number of factors which affect performance, with it being crucial that your golf bag is sturdy, lightweight and even waterproof. Importantly, it must protect your equipment and be as easy to use as possible. At the end of the day, it's the item that's protecting your equipment.
