Best Car to Carry Your Clubs?


Recommended Posts

So, here's one that's loosely related to this category, but...well, it doesn't fit anywhere else, haha.

golfbags.jpg

What is the best car for golfers? Is there a best way to carry your clubs in comfort and protection? Question was posed over on a UK site (ATTN: EU readers!), and personally I like #2 on their list (link:https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/best-cars-golfers-073157443.html?) but thought I would get a perspective from around the globe! Maybe we can compile the top choices here and create a poll 😉

If you're buying new I think everybody allows overnight test drives. I brought a couple cars home specifically to load them up (not just clubs) before I made a decision.

Hey PMookie, my first car was a 1962 Ford Galaxie, metallic brown. I loved that car, had to put seatbelts in it. Paid $200. Wish I still had it...

I remember when we used to pile the golf team in for sectionals in the spring the school had a Chevy Astro Van that held all 6 sets of clubs, all 8 of us, and room to spare.

2018 Chevy Impala. Comfortable cruiser, decent gas mileage, fits 3 sets of clubs plus three pieces of luggage in the trunk. Can't do a foursome unless it is a golf only day trip.  I like a sedan as a golf vehicle. Everything is hidden in the trunk. Very helpful where club theft is common in tourist golfing areas. Seen to many smashed windows in SUV's with clubs stolen.

The Impala was a car I considered when I was shopping  for cars.  Huge trunk.  I wanted something a little sportier, so SUVs were out, and most sporty SUVs don't really have much room without the backseat down.  I also like the sedan, so all clubs and luggage are hidden from view.

I have a 2014 Dodge Charger R/T.  I can get two golf bags and two roll aboards or two SM pushcarts in the trunk with the back seat up.  My bag is a stand bag and my wife's bag is a cart bag.  I'm sure I can get 4 stand bags in the trunk for a day trip.

I have a 2020 Ford Ranger that i purchased 3 months ago. Much better than trying to get my pushcart and bag in the Prius that I had previously.

I bought a VW Atlas and it’s huge. Interior cargo space rivals a Tahoe for a fraction of the price. My pit rides comfortably in the back along with our luggage for trips. That includes plenty of space for clubs.

Well, any minivan, but most men don't want to go there.  3 years ago I was shopping for an SUV and had picked out one based on research and looks.  I took my clubs with me and they wouldn't fit without folding down the rear seat so I didn't even drive it.  Ended up going up one size in the manufacturer's line up.

Honestly any hatch... This is the car I bought when I moved here. Fits my partner, 3 dogs, golf clubs and more! 2010 BMW i116 and her name is Zelda. Few extra bonuses are if you have a clicgear or friends Clubs it's a quick fold seat down and your off!!

I actually have choices sitting in the driveway. But the Impala was chosen for golf specific reasons. Big trip I can put the car top bubble on the Sorento and four sets fit up there.  For style there is the blacked out Charger. For a local jaunt the Mazda 6.

The Charger is a police magnet.

2014 MAZDA6,  Two blue lights in 6 years

2016 CHARGER,  Four blue lights in 1 year

2018 IMPALA,  Zero blue lights in 2 years.

Currently, my caddytek pushcart resides in the bed of my F150. Clubs slide in next to it. Last week I had 3 bags full in the truck when my Grandsons came to play.

Gotta agree that the Chevy Impala is one of the greatest cars for trunk space that I have ever used.
