Sun Mountain Club Glider Meridian Wheeled Travel Cover

What To Pack For A Golf Trip

This is an outstanding piece of kit and, if you do get your hands on one, you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried one before. The integrated leg set, which retracts easily, supports 100 per cent of the weight so, when you’re facing a lengthy walk to the car park or arriving at your accommodation, transporting your clubs around couldn’t be easier.

Inside there’s just the right space to pack your clubs, shoes and a few bits of clothing without your clubs rattling round and, because of the wheels, things will never feel too heavy. It’s all plenty durable with a ‘ballistic-style’ nylon heavy padding to protect your clubs.  There are various choices in this excellent range with the Glider Pro being a larger option.
