Top Lightweight Golf Bags for 2023
Not all golf bags are created the same, and like most products you tend to get what you pay for. Bags have come a long way over the decades in the same way clubs and other performance golf gear has. If you’re going to walk the course there’s always a lot to be said for that, and you’re going to enjoy the experience in a better way. A quality golf club bag is needed in the same way there are do’s and don’ts when picking up your golf bag. This is good advice for people for who maybe haven’t golfed in a while, so what we’ll do with this week’s entry at Palm Desert is look at the best lightweight golf bags for 2023.
Minimalist golf carry bags are always going to be the lightest, and for the person playing smaller courses with lots of Par 3s with a 3 iron, a 7, 9 and a wedge plus putter or something similar they are going to be ideal. You’ll see all sorts of bags here at our Palm Desert golf course, and that’ll be the same for any of the many public golf courses in Coachella Valley where you can book at tee time online. People who like to have plenty of pep in their step will like Titleist Player 4 Carbon Stand Bag or the Callaway HyperLite Zero stand bag.
Both weigh less than 3lbs and for the fitter golfer who doesn’t need to have a golf club bag on wheels they’re ideal. Backpack bag straps were a huge development in golf bag technology years back and nowadays the ways you can have the weight evenly distributed is really great. Plus there are other ways to make it easy to carry your golf club bag. This can be especially good information for golfers looking to golf in Palm Desert in the same way it will be for regulars at any public golf course in the USA.
Taking the Path
All the health benefits that come from walking the course are well known, and it is definitely true that having one of the lightest golf club bags is going to add that type of comfort to your game. A lot of these newer bags will have a strap slider system that allows the bag to stay stable while adjusting to the way you move, and the TaylorMade FlexTech Lite is probably the best example of where you’ll find this design.
Some golfers say it’s not actually that much lighter than the standard FlexTech bag, so you may even want to go for the more affordable option of the two if you like this golf club bag.
You see a lot of TaylorMade gear here everywhere on Palm Desert golf courses, and it definitely a golf club bag brand that has some coolness to it all the time like a Louisville would for a baseball bat or a Sherwood for a hockey stick. Hockey fans around here who like to golf in Palm desert will like to know that our Cactus Club restaurant is one of the only places in Palm Desert where you can count on a hockey game being available on the TV and the NCAA Frozen Four 2023 is coming up starting April at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Many of the better new golf bags are ones that have a hip pad system as another example of how golf bags are so much more smartly made these days. The molding provides added comfort around the shoulders and the back and the Callaway Fairway C HD is one of the best golf club bags for a hip pad system that gives a better fit.
Go Hoofer for Lightest and Best Bag
If you want the absolute lightest golf club bag you need to get the Ping Hoofer Lite Bag. It weighs under 2kg and you can choose from backpack style or a one-strap system that gives it a classic golf bag look. It’s ideal for people who again are playing shorter holes and courses regularly and don’t have the full complement of clubs with them.
The Titleist Players 4 Carbon Stand Bag is an excellent choice for an ultralight weight golf club bag too, and it is super light at just 1.3kg and it really is effortless to carry around. Seen more than a few of these bags around our Palm Desert Golf course too and it is indeed a really nice basic that is nothing to carry all over the course as you enjoy your round.
The golf season in Palm Desert is winding down as it will start getting downright hot in this part of Southern California, but that doesn’t means there’s not a lot going on around here and we still expect to see more than a few of you for a few rounds or more of golf before the season comes to a close. This vies of the mountains make our Palm Desert golf course a real gem of an experience at this time of the year. And as always keep in mind we have golf lessons in Palm Desert and Coachella here too with real instruction pros that WILL give you the skills to improve your golf game.
