Golf Monthly Verdict

Whether this nice, good-looking and well-functioning bag is worth the upgrade from a more popular version, such as the Ping Hoofer, is up to you. But with the PXG logo not-so-subtly placed on eight parts of the bag – right down to the carry handle – it does kind of scream to anyone within sight that you’re an avid golfer.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    It’s an outstanding, well-built bag that functions well.

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    It costs up to three times the price of carry stand bags from other brands.

PXG Fairway Camo Carry Stand Bag Review

The mindset is that if you buy PXG golf clubs, you naturally want to show them off and house them in a PXG golf bag. After all, you’re not going to drop a small fortune for a new set and then schlep it around in a bargain-brand bag. And the opposite is also true: If you play low-end clubs but want to be taken more seriously, you’ll probably consider carrying them around in a PXG bag.

Either way, the PXG Fairway Camo Carry stand bag has a presence. It garners attention just with its logo alone. But in this case, it’s the camouflage pattern that also grabs eyes. And a PXG clubfitter gave us the inside scoop: The camouflage pattern is not random. If you look closely, each shape actually resembles one of the 45 fairways at Scottsdale (Ariz.) National Golf Club, the course owned by PXG owner and founder Bob Parsons.

The bag is lightweight – hardly tipping the scales at 4.6 pounds. And that weight includes the 4-point, padded, dual-shoulder carry straps armed with quick disconnects. The durable carbon fiber stand legs glide open and shut with ease.

Other features include a four-way top that helps separate your clubs nicely, a cart strap passthrough belt, external glove storage, customizable ball storage, a custom molded base, padded back panel, external pen slot, insulated water bottle pocket, microfiber line valuables pocket, generous sized ball pocket, outerwear side pocket, external umbrella storage and a snap-on rain hood.

It stands 35 inches tall, and is offered in three color schemes with gray, white or black being the dominant color. Whichever you choose, you’ll be confident that it’s stylish. In fact, in a month’s worth of testing, golfers constantly approached out of nowhere to ask about our black version.
