What do you need from yours?
There’s a lot to consider when buying a new golf bag, so we’re going to break down the latest models from Motocaddy and offer you some recommendations…
Is there any better time of year than Christmas time in December?
It’s the time of year for mince pies, holly wreaths, gingerbread, neon lights, carol singing, and laughter all round. What’s your single favourite festivity?
Take a moment to think back to how special Christmas-time was when you were a child. The magic of waking up each morning knowing that the big day was getting closer and closer. No December morning was complete in the run up to Christmas without opening up a door on the advent calendar. It was a special way to start the day and a lot of fun.
They were intricately designed with a place for everything and everything was in its place. If your golf game is as tidy and organized as your advent calendar, you’ll be in the right mindset to shoot some low scores!
Not unlike an advent calendar, the pockets on our waterproof golf bags are specifically designed to house a unique bit of kit. Here’s a reminder why golf is best experienced with a dedicated golf bag!
Your golf ball pocket may be the very first thing you reach for as you make your way onto the putting green ahead of the first tee. These handy pouches are roomy and are located near the bottom of your bag to keep the weight well-distributed. Whether you play with the exact same kind of ball each time you tee off or like to stock up on different branded balls, it’s always a great feeling rummaging around and finding the perfect ball to play with.
The biggest pockets on our waterproof golf bags are best dedicated to our bulkiest items, and as we all know, the weather is very changeable, and we’re often taking our jackets on and off. The apparel pouch often runs the length of your typical stand bag, and will be a focal point of roomy cart bags.
It’s often cold at this time of year so we usually head out wearing multiple layers. These roomy apparel pockets are perfect for storing jackets, bobble hats, mittens, and all the warming gear you need on those chilly rounds of golf.
One of your biggest fears when heading to the course may be losing track of your phone, car keys, and any other small pocketable valuable. There’s no need to panic as modern waterproof golf bags also have a dedicated section for keeping your precious items safe. These pockets are often lined with materials that feel wonderful to the touch like velour. You’ll have the peace-of-mind that your wallet will be safe until the 19th hole when you make use of these pockets.
It may not necessarily be a sealed pocket depending on the bag you’re playing with, but the drinks holder is a dependable, reliable area that you’ll be making use of to keep yourself hydrated and in form as you make your way around the course.
Think for a second of the wonderful warm spring and summer months we have ahead of us next year. Many golf bags have a cooler pocket that’s well insulated to keep your drink cool. Everyone hates having a drink go warm on a hot summer’s day, but it will stay refreshingly-cold when stored in the cooler pocket.
The often-overlooked hero that’s always there when you need a pick-me-up, the beverage pouch is the pocket you reach for to keep you going on those turbulent rounds.
If there’s one thing we depend upon throughout the winter, it’s that there’ll be plenty of rainfall. You can place the same unshakeable faith in your umbrella holder, your brolly will be securely in place during your time playing golf. Not unlike the beverage pouch, the umbrella holder is always at the ready, and your brolly is easy to detach so you can prepare yourself for when you feel those first few falling raindrops.
Motocaddy has a fantastic range of golf bags, each with their own trusty, durable functionalities.
As the name implies, all your gear will stay safe from the rain when you head out on the course with the Dry-Series Cart Bag. This bag provides full waterproof protection thanks to the thermo-sealed and heat-welded seams.
The Dry-Series has a whopping 9 pockets, including the 5 that we’ve mentioned in our list above. The bag has carry handles and is easy to attach to any Motocaddy trolley. There are 14 full-length dividers so each of your clubs will have its own allocated slot and they won’t clang together when you’re moving along. Weighing just 2.9kg, this cart bag is very light and offers a lot of convenience.
If you prefer something a little nimbler, the HydroFlex Stand Bag is right up your street. This marvel from motocaddy both has an adjustable carry strap so you can place it on your shoulders comfortably, and it can be easily attached to a trolley. The HydroFlex comes with a rain hood and similarly has waterproof thermo-sealed seams.
