Best Car to Carry Your Clubs?

When I bought my Subaru Outback I assumed bags would fit across the cargo area - WRONG. 😠 I might be able to get 3 bags and players with the 60 back seat folded down, but 4 is out of the question. I think I might be able to get 4 bags and players in my wife’s Honda Accord, but I haven’t tried it other than one bag will fit across. Short of going with a full sized car, SUV or pickup - I think 4 bags and players might fit in a mid to small SUV if it’s tall enough to stand bags upright - I’m positive my old Honda Element would have taken 4 upright bags and players.

I have the Subaru Ascent which is their largest vehicle and my clubs will not fit laid across the back, parallel to the rear end, I have to lay them at an angle to fit. Definitely frustrating

1974 Ford Galaxie 500, 2 door, Fire Engine Red, black top. We took my car to regionals and held all six sets of clubs in the trunk, and ALL 6 golfers in the car, with room to spare! 1986.

I will roll with this bad boy!

I laid black carpet in the bed(Walmart $20) to keep my bag from sliding around. I have a cover on the bed so I can lock my pushcart and bag in the bed.

Same issue here. Our unmarked cars are the  blacked out Chargers. I haven't received any tickets just comments. Nice car, thought you were one of us, you can't have your under car lights on red, blue, or in motion. 

Does yours have the launch control and track condition feature? I also get this car as a rental through Budget when I travel to Kansas City. Hemi Scat Pack with the race track features is freaking amazing. I got a kick out of the warning message when you hit the launch button. "Warning your steering wheel must be perfectly straight".

No, it's just a stock R/T Hemi with all the bells and whistles. but I bought it new in 2014 with a lifetime warranty for $29,200... msrp $41,900.  I do wish the suspension was a little better; might have to upgrade when it needs it.

You’re looking for the MGS Your Golf Rig thread - either this or that ought to do the trick.

I posted that in 2017, and I haven't seen it in our parking lot since.  Wonder why?

Honestly any hatch...

I don't know that I'd say that necessarily.

2013-hyundai-genesis-coupe-first-drive-r

I have to take D, 3W, and orange whip out of the bag to fit the bag in. When looking at pushcarts, my wife knew space was at a premium so was looking at things that folded as small as possible. I love the car, but it is certainly not optimal for golf clubs. I have fit two bags a couple times, but it always makes me cringe when closing the trunk.

I wasn't thinking of hot hatches... Should have clarified 4 door hatch or wagon style cars.

I want THIS car for carrying my clubs! Always been a dream for me:

1978 Cadillac El Dorado convertible! When I was a kid, there was a man that used to drive his through the parking lot of our swim and tennis club each day. He had a big shaggy dog that sat in the front seat with him, and I LOVED his car! Light blue, white leather interior, etc. Yeah, the spare poses a problem, but I think I can still get a few sets in this boat!!!!

Ford Expedition Max.  With the 2nd and 3rd row seats down, you can slide a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood in. One of the best riding cars we've owned and gets 21+ mpg fully loaded at 80 mph.  It's big but drives really small.

I've never considered this a prerequisite for buying a car, but the last two SUVs I purchased I could not fit clubs width ways in the back. Always have to keep one of the seats folded up to get them in length wise. Definitely gonna make sure my next vehicle can fit them width ways in the back.

I sold cars for a brief period in my younger days and bringing your clubs to check the fit happened often - it was definitely not one of the odder things people "test fit" before purchase.

Oddest had to be a strange fellow who wanted to make sure his two giant duffel bags would fit in the trunk. The other salesmen and I raised a few eyebrows at that request..

I really want to buy a mini-van since renting a Chrysler Pacifica last year for our golf trip, 5 people, all clubs, luggage, coolers, everything. Super comfortable, was a hybrid and we got like 50 miles to the gallon. Man I want one badly!

I had to put my clubs in the passenger seat in my 97 M Edition Miata. I recently sold it and purchased a 2012 Nissan Altima. Lots of trunk space, but it is the most boring car I have ever owned.

Bought a 2020 Hyundai sorento and I can get 4 cart bags along with shoes in rear. It also has a pull out cargo cover so you can't see what's in the cargo area. It also get 28 mpg in the city.

I'm a sales manager at a Chevrolet dealership. Older customer said if his clubs and his wife's wheelchair would fit in a C7 (2016)Corvette, he'd buy it. Brought his clubs and her sport model, low profile chair, we placed them under the hatch, which closed with ease. He grinned, and an hour later, drove it away. I see him quite often at local tour events, still grinning and driving his club hauler.
