When it comes to finding the perfect golf bag for women, there are a lot of factors to consider. Do you want a bag that’s ultra-lightweight and easy to carry? A bag with enough storage that you could live out of it? Stand bags, cart bags, fabric, leather—the options are endless. What is certain is, if your bag is leaving dents in your shoulders, won’t stand up on its legs or looks like it has seen better days, it’s probably time for an upgrade. To help you navigate the world of women’s golf bag options, we polled some of the female golfers on staff to find out some of their

“My college team used the PING Hoofer Lite bags and I've never found another that compares. It's incredibly lightweight at just five pounds and the backpack-style straps make it super comfortable to carry—great for golfers who love to walk. It has a ton of roomy pockets that make it easy to toss in a jacket or rain gear for when the weather is precarious and there are a ton of fun colors and patterns to choose from, too.” —Nicole Rae, Sr. Manager, Audience Development & Marketing

“For as long as I’ve been playing golf, I’ve almost always used Sun Mountain bags, so when I recently went to purchase a new bag, it was an easy place to start my search. As a golfer who typically walks the course, I love having the backpack-style straps and a lightweight bag. Some of the older bags I’ve used would leave red marks on my shoulders by the end of the round, but Sun Mountain added extra cushion to the shoulder straps to avoid that in the recent models. It’s definitely in the compact golf bag category, but don’t underestimate the storage compartments. I’ve never had an issue finding a place to store extra layers or whatever else I need out on the course with this golf bag.” —Courtney Kyritz, Manager, Audience Development

“As someone who loves to walk when I play, I’ve always loved Titleist golf bags. They’re very light and the comfort of the double-straps is hard to beat. Pockets are also a top priority for me when I’m shopping for a new golf bag—I prefer bags that offer lots of storage space, without sacrificing a sleek look. It can be tough to find, but I always appreciate a bag with pockets of varying sizes and utilities to help me stay organized. For these reasons, Titleist’s Players 4 Carbon Stand Bag—weighing just 2.8 pounds and featuring five pockets—is my go-to these days.” —Christina Parsells, Social Media Coordinator

“I like Bettinardi’s stand bag because it’s made for golfers who don’t want to choose between walking or riding. This sleek, super-clean-looking bag only weighs 4.5 pounds, has eight pockets for storage and has those small details—like an umbrella holder, pencil holder, and towel holder—that really make a difference. The E-Z Fit dual strap system makes it comfortable to carry, white the cart-friendly bottom fits in most push carts and all riding carts. Another small detail I love about this bag is that the cart strap runs behind the pockets, so your bag can be strapped in without hindering pocket access.” —Daria Delfino, Hot List Coordinator and Executive Assistant

“I love a good Sunday bag, especially this one from Vessel. The synthetic leather looks stylish out on the course—but it’s still lightweight and durable. As for the single divider, I use all 14 clubs that I’m allotted, and I haven’t had an issue with keeping my clubs organized. There are also a ton of pockets on this bag, too, which is great for someone like myself who tends to be a pack mule on the course. This particular bag is sold out at the moment, so you’ll have to check back for a restock—or check out some other Sunday bags I’ve had my eye on, below.” —Madeline MacClurg, Assistant Editor

"No need to sacrifice style for function with the Stitch golf bag. If you're looking for a bag that's just as sleek and sharp as it is durable and light, this is bag you're looking for. Make sure to customize it with your initials for an extra personal touch." —Hally Leadbetter, Senior Producer
