8 Awesome & Lightweight Women’s Golf Bags – Bold and Beautiful!

There are a number of different types of golf bags on the market today, and the choices can be overwhelming at times (… just like almost anything nowadays).  Gone are the days of the “monster” leather bags that I remember using, almost weighing as much as me – no more!  Lightweight women’s golf bags produced today make carrying your clubs around from here to there “super easy”.


Today most golf bags come in two categories: Cart Bags & Stand Bags.


Golf Cart BagsFirst, just a little bit about golf bags in general…

Golf club Cart Bags are made more specifically for placing in either a walking or riding golf cart.  The weight of the bag itself tends to be much heavier than the stand (or carry) bag, although golf bags in general weigh much less now than they did previously. Leather bags are the exception.

Stand Bags are pretty self-explanatory.  They are much lighter in weight are are made to carry if you choose to.  Usually coming with some kind of carry strap or shoulder harness and typically made of nylon, carting them around the course is a pretty easy job with the new style bags – if you’re up for it of course!
They also fit onto a golf cart, although just a little care is needed strapping them in. You don’t want to crush the legs, so a little caution is necessary.

There are also what they call “Carry” or “Sunday” golf bags which usually hold a smaller number of clubs and have nothing more than the “bare bones” to get you around the course.  They certainly have their place, but I think most women today go for the typical cart bag.

You might also hear the tern “Staff” golf bag. These are usually high quality leather bags the professional golfers use – they are BIG & HEAVY (and very expensive) and are carted around the course by a caddy.  These are not for us!

Today’s golf bags are primarily made from lightweight nylon, which is the main reason why carry bags are on the upswing.  Most professional golfers still use the rugged leather bags mentioned above; the ones that you could load the contents of your home into (exaggerating of course)!  Hahaha, their caddies might wish they had something to say about that!  99% of the golfers playing today are amateurs, and we don’t need that kind of bag, although built to last and incredibly beautiful.


The #1 Golf Bag Type Women Prefer

Cart Golf Bags!
They are light, more practical, and offer many options. Most women will not want to carry their own clubs, and will either use a pull or push cart, or a motorized golf cart. Look for compartments on the bag for storage, and also how the clubs fit inside - there are variations, and all will influence price.

About the Author:

... lifetime lover of the game of golf! Had golfing parents that loved the game and were supportive of what talents (or not) us kids had or showed interest in. Lived alongside the 5th fairway of our local golf club in high school, which is where my "true" love affair with the sport began, and it has continued for 40 years!

    Lightweight golf bags make a world of difference. High school kids that play on golf teams have to walk the course. The lighter the bag is, the more energy they will have at the end of a round. The information on the page is great. I will be recommending this site to other golf coaches in my area.

      Hey Alan
      Thanks a lot for the recommendation! – appreciated.
      Even though I personally use a cart (walking & motorized) most of the time, I still need that lighter bag just for transportation reasons. Todays bags are not only lightweight but durable as well, and will last for years.

    Really nice post. Even though I use a cart when I golf, I got a lot of information out of the article.
    My bag is kinda heavy, but I only have to get it out of the car and into the cart. But now that I think of it, lighter would definitely be better even for me! Well done – gonna rethink what I have. Next golf bag I get may be lighter than this “behemoth” of mine.

      For me, it’s made all the difference. Getting ready for actual play is so much easier now. Loading & unloading the clubs into the car, cart, or carrying is a much more pleasant task now – definitely worth it!

    My wife and I are golfers, so I was curious about your site. This a real good overall description of women’s cart bags and stand bags. … thanks!

    I would be curious about the difference in the number of pockets and number of dividers for the different kind of bags.

      Within the different categories of golf bags, there will be a variety of different interiors or compartments/dividers. You’ll find some with 4 to 6 sections, and even some with a place for every individual club. So be sure to take a look carefully at the different photos of each golf bag, and read the descriptions carefully before you purchase.

    These golf bags are really awesome, I could totally see my partner buying one of these options, as we do play golf whenever we can. She’s a big Michelle Wie fan, and she’s been to a few golf events too.

    I know she will want to read this 🙂 Her old golf bag is ready to be dumped.
    I think she’s going to like the glove it bag. … but anyway thanks for sharing!

      There are so many choices nowadays I’m sure she’ll find one she likes, but I must admit the Glove It Golf Bags are pretty nice. All depends what you’re looking for in a bag. I think it’s got a lot of style!
