The beauty of golf is that not every golfer plays the same — many golfers favor different clubs, and some don’t even use all of the clubs in their bag. While some players obsess over finding a perfect driver, Phil Mickelson, widely considered one of the greats, will routinely ditch the driver entirely at some of the biggest tournaments.

That’s why it’s worth finding the right bag for your style of play. There’s a good deal of variation in the number of slots a stand bag will have, so it’s easy to ensure you’re not wasting space on clubs you don’t use. Likewise, you don’t want to try to cram 14 clubs into one slot. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up several stand bags with varying amounts of slots and storage.

Featured on this list is a minimalist, lightweight stand bag. Or, you can get a cart bag that has a ton of pockets (including an insulated drink pouch). Check out the best golf stand bags on Amazon below.


1. TaylorMade Golf Stand Golf Bag 5.0

Pros: Lots of storage, and various handles and straps for comfortable carrying.
