How we test golf gear
At Golf Monthly, we test all golf equipment thoroughly (opens in new tab) and look to find the best golf gear in every category. That way we can give you a clearer idea of which products are worth buying and which aren't. Our methodology revolves around putting products to the test out on the golf course, and with golf pouches, that means using each pouch out on the course to compare how well they store our valuables and golf equipment. It is by using the pouches properly that we can gain an understanding on their quality, durability and how easy each accessory is to use. It is important to note that all product testing is carried out by our experienced team of writers, all of whom play golf regularly and have a very good understanding of what makes a good product.
What to consider when buying a valuables pouch
You might not believe it when we say it, but there are a lot of things to consider when purchasing your next golf pouch. While they probably aren't the most hi-tech pieces of equipment in your golf bag, they will carry some of your most important effects, including your phone and wallet. So for that reason it is important you get the right valuables pouch for your needs to ensure your golf valuables stay safe and organized in your bag. For that reason, we have set out several key considerations below that you need to think about when purchasing your next golf valuables pouch.
First things first, you need to think about the size of your valuables pouch. How big or small do you want it to be? What are you going to put in it? Do you want a pouch that can easily slot into smaller pockets in your golf bag, or one that is large and stores everything? Different pouches have different sizes and therefore capacities so it is good to be aware how big some models are.
What do you want the pouch to be made of? There are models made of leather, polyester, velour, or synthetic materials so there is something for everyone really. The leather models offer a more premium feel whilst the polyester designs perhaps stretch a little better to get more accessories in.
Linking with the fabric, strength and durability are huge factors to be aware of here because if a valuables pouch is not strong and the fabric wears away, your valuables could fall out and be lost forever. As such we would recommend going for models with premium construction at the forefront of the design.
What do you want the pouch to look like? Do you want a brand name on the front or some kind of camo design like the Puma model above? Something simple, or something a little different? There are lots of designs out there with different prints, colors and finishes so have a think about this.
How much are you willing to spend on a valuables pouch? It is a relatively minor accessory in the game of golf but can be very useful indeed so given the range in prices of the products we selected, it is worth having a think about how much you want to spend on one.
Now that you may have figured out which golf valuables pouch you want to purchase, you're going to need some stuff to fill it up with.

What do you put in a valuables pouch golf?
The golf valuables pouch is the simple solution to keeping your precious items in one safe and secure place. What you put in your pouch is up to you really. You could keep your keys, wallet and phone safe or you could use the pouch to store all your golf items, like tees, ball marker, pitch repairers and so on.
What are golf pouches used for?
Golfers have to carry some items when they head to the course, including their wallets, phone, keys, tees, and all sorts of paraphernalia. A solid golf pouch can provide sufficient space to store all items conveniently and without having to lug around a large bag.
Should I clip my golf valuables pouch onto my bag?
Depending on whether your pouch comes with a clip, you can fasten your pouch onto the side of your bag. That can make finding tees and golf balls a lot easier, meaning you don't have to rummage through the pockets of your bag to find stuff. But do so at your own peril, as sometimes, pouches can fall off your bag if they are not fastened correctly or the fastening is not secure enough.
