How Often Do You Replace Your Golf Bag?

Sorry here’s a side shot also.


Love seeing and learning about new equipment and this one makes lots of sense!  The side view is like a solid traditional bag but the end view shows it is all business with club management.  Thank you for sharing this with us 👍 Now if only they would have it in camouflage...

I have SunMountain C130 that's about 5 years old, I'm itching to get a new one, but hard to justify, the thing has just held up too damn well 🙂   I mean, with a good cleaning, it practically looks new.

I've never worn a bag out.  I tend to buy a new, matching staff bag whenever I buy a new set of irons.  I get new irons about every 3-4 years, so I have a garage full of nice staff bags and matching irons.  I do have a couple carry bags that don't get much use, normally use them when travelling or when going to a club that has caddies (they appreciate it).  I bet I have 20 like new bags in my garage...

I've changed once in 10 years, maybe 4 years ago, when the bag I got when I took up the game fell apart. I do have 2 "spare" bags, one an old Ping that holds my backup/spare clubs, and a 14-way cart bag my father gave to my son but he doesn't use so that may end up being another storage bag.

Cart bags usually lasted me 8 or 9 seasons. I've had 2 that were crushed on flights and were replaced sooner. Stand bags seem to have issues after about 5 or 6 seasons. After 45 some years of golf I know I've bought fewer than 7 or 8 bags.

When they wear out.  I have four Titleist bags; 2 tour mid size bags ( black/white, black), and one lightweight carry bag that I take when I fly to an event (it fits in my SKB hardcase travel bag) and on new cart 14 bag.  Unfortunatelay, due to health issues can no longer walk and play golf.  Dr say take a cart and have fun.  When I drive to a TT event I take my black mid size bag which also has a Team Titleist Ambassador bad tag on it.  I had a Titleist Folds of Honor Tour bag but it has a new home in N Carolina with a retired marine major friend of mine.     IMG_5343.JPG

I carry my bag and wear them out in about 6 months - so that ends up as my general replacement rate. Though i did manage to go through three last year.

How often everyone chooses to replace clubs has been thoroughly discussed, but how about your bag? I just bought a new bag for functional reasons, first time I’ve replaced a bag (after only 4 years) that wasn’t simply beyond hope. The one before was about 30 years old, it was falling apart. All of my golf buds have bags that look older than they do, even when they buy new clubs they keep the old bag.

Do you replace your bag whenever just because, or when the old one becomes embarrassing?

The warden asked me if I could trade in my old bag as it’s in decent condition? 😆

8-12 years, I have 1 carry bag and 1 cart bag.

Replaced my 10+ year old stand bag last summer.  Bag before that lasted about 9 years.  My replacement event is usually triggered by the internal dividers breaking down which winds up having club shafts getting twisted up when carrying or the top cuff of the bag wearing out.  Have had good luck with zippers and the stand mechanisms.

I actually have 3 right now, which one I use depends on if I'm walking or riding. As for replacement, when the bag gets to a point where it is no longer in what I consider "user" condition, you know zippers not working smoothly, holes worn into them, tears on the side or the clubs just don't slide in like they used to then I replace it, Sometimes someone at work is getting started in golf, I'll give them one of my bags to help them out, and it gives me a good excuse to get a new one!!


Since I build my own clubs, I replace the bag when I build a new set.

For me it is all about the zippers.  When the zippers start to break the bag gets replaced.  My current bag is on 4 years it has a magnetic ball pocket and that is the pocket that I keep most of the often used stuff in like the rangefinder.

I struggling to remember when I bought a new bag. It may have been in 2015. It replaced a TaylorMade Durango bag that was jus a bit too small for my liking. I have a TaylorMade Supreme Hybrid Stand Bag and has held up extremely well. It’s sits really nicely on my Clicgear cart.
