Shopping Online For Golf Stuff

Living in the country, there are no opportunities to shop for golf stuff unless I drive about 3.5 hours. This limitation is okay because when I do make it to the golf store, I spend a great deal of time window shopping for something that I need (or want ūüėČ ). In the meantime, I try to shop online for all my golfing needs and in the past the experience was quite rewarding. Unfortunately, this year is far less productive or rewarding. I went online to my usual places and was not enticed to open my wallet…..I wonder if I am missing something?

Carry bag from Kirk

The real challenge I am facing is that I do not need anything. I am not exaggerating one bit. During the fall of 2020 and spring of 2021, I updated all my electronic devices, purchased enough golf balls to last a few more years, and my clubs are good for at least 3 to 5 more years (if not longer). I am good to go…..except for a new golf bag for my push cart.

I already have an outstanding carry bag given to me by my friend Kirk, by my push bag has seen better days. Additionally, I am looking for something smaller and easier to handle when lifting it in and out of my golf locker aka car. I want it to have 14 different club slots, but does not have to have a multitude of pockets and zippers. The one I have now has pockets I do not even use. So, my search will begin.

For those who don’t already know, I have a process to buying golf equipment. The plan is to save money and reduce any buyers remorse. Here are my steps to buying success:

  • Step 1:¬†¬†Research, research, and research. ¬†I read the hype of manufactures to see what they say, however, I actually pay attention to the consumer reviews. ¬†This is the most important piece of information you will find. ¬†People are more than willing to tell you what they think.
  • Step 2:¬†¬† Figure out what I want/need. The best way to purchase a golf bag is to see it first.
  • Step 3:¬†¬†Wait for it to come on sale. ¬†Check Ebay. ¬†Check Kijiji. ¬†Check Golftown (or other large¬†franchise¬†stores), check the local pro shop (you would be surprised).
  • Step 4:¬†¬†If possible haggle over the price. ¬†The local pro shop will lower their price if you make them a reasonable deal.
  • Step 5:¬†¬†Purchase the piece of equipment.
  • Step 6:¬†¬†Probably the most important step ‚Äď be happy with your purchase. ¬†This is very important!

So my journey to purchase a new cart bag is underway. It is going to be fun and eventually I will find one to suit my needs. In the meantime, I will continue to look on line and see what pops up.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. I had a Bag Boy bag for years, it was great but too heavy and bulky for my liking due to so many pockets.

    I have just changed over to a Big Max Terra X. They are sold at Golftown and reasonably priced. Well organized and relatively light for a cart bag. They are very big in the UK and shed the elements well. I have a few of their carry bags for the hickory sets and have been very pleased.

    They are on sale at Golftown for about $185.

  2. I’ve had a few different brands over the years. The only advice I have concerns bags from Daytec. The bag was great mind you, the problem was me. I bought it at a store, not online and I didn’t count the number of clubs it could fit. I’d guess I played more than a year before I finally realized I was carrying 15 clubs. Good thing I didn’t play tournament golf like you do.
