Best Car to Carry Your Clubs?

Recommended Posts

I looked at new Audi a couple of years ago.  When I pulled into the dealership I parked next to the car I wanted.  Immediately the salesman came running out (like they always do).  I asked him to open the trunk.  I opened mine and pulled out my clubs and push cart.  And placed them into the dealership's Audi.  Salesman kept saying, "Be careful, be careful."  I told him if they fit I'd buy the car.  I did.

This will get it done nicely.  It will carry your clubs, the clubs of the rest of your 4some and seat them in comfort on the way to your golf destination with no need to adjust front driver seat or passenger seat for leg room.

I have 2-

I echo everyone who responded with some kind of truck. My truck bed easily swallows my wife and my bags and electronic trolleys. With room to go on golf trips with multiple bags, coolers, whatever. 

Haven't seen anyone mention a golf cart, but I haven't read all the responses.

I like my 2017 Camry. Huge trunk, stylish, and great on gas mileage for those golfing road trips.

Honda Ridgeline Truck- The bed has a compartment that is flush with the bed floor that holds clubs in a cart bag with 6 pairs of shoes, balls and many other accessories in a a waterproof compartment that is lockable. Most people don't even realize this compartment is there. It is the best

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. 

Plus, what kind of self-respecting golfer drives a Prius?  ;^)

Same thing.  I carried my golf clubs when I shopped for cars. But really, you should narrow it down for other items in the category and then test out those.  I knew I wanted a mid-size SUV, not any kind of sedan.

So it depends on how you golf?  Always walk, always ride, push cart?

 I have 2016 ford explorer and works pretty well.  I have clubs, push cart, and one of those trunk caddies that hold shoes and balls and stuff.  Works pretty good.  None of the mid-size SUVs that I found would fit clubs fore and aft perfectly.  Honda Pilot is pretty big in the midsize category, but I didn't like the cockpit and other features. 


For golf trips, there is no better car than Suburban.  Four sets of clubs and luggage all fit well in the back and good seating for 4 guys.

Loved my "practical" 2000 C5 Corvette coupe which easily gobbled up both mine and my wife's clubs under the hatch. The vette is gone now sadly 😪 - but I still have my 1979 Oldsmobile Holiday 88 2 door coupe that does the same plus luggage and at least one dead body! 😃 Luckily - when the Holiday is in storage - I have my 2019 Honda Ridgeline which others on this thread have touted.  Style and comfort all around.

My Mercedes C320 fits a bag nicely width-wise. Don't think the trunk will carry a pullcart and a bag. The trunk will also fit 6 bags of black mulch and four 12*12 pavers...don't ask on how I know 🤔...😁😅🤣. My 2019 Honda Odyssey can fit a whole golf team, lol.

Really, theres so many choices that its probably easier to say what cars ARENT great.

Having said that, my '15 Honda Accord does well.  You can put a golf bag in sideways and I could probably get 4 bags in the trunk pretty easily.  Really though, any SUV or car that is midsize or bigger is going to be pretty ideal for carrying golf clubs.

Played golf for over 50 years until my health and business calendar reduced my time to less then 5 rounds a year. Then 4 years ago I retired, changed my diet and lifestyle, lost 100 pounds and got back on the course. Its been a struggle but things are getting better.

I posted earlier but forgot to mention my car. 2015 Malibu. It would fit my clubs if it didn’t have the battery for the auto stop. I hate that feature but can’t bypass it. My previous car was a 2015 Impala that could fit clubs shoes, a pushcart and all my rain gear and still have room. Man I miss that car, but someone hit it while it was parked and totaled it.

Like others, both my personal vehicles were subject to a bag test to qualify. When I travel with my club glove travel bag I like to rent a Nissan Altima. The bag w/clubs fit left to right. The Sentra will do the same on a diagonal line. Parking at hotels in poorly lit lots, I prefer not to temp anyone by having exposed clubs on display. Malibu is/was another choice.
