Your choice: winter vs summer

It’s not every day you get a new golf bag. But what do you look for when your trusty decade-old bag eventually gives up the ghost?


In the pro shop, there are stand, pencil and cart bags from multiple brands to choose from. All different sizes with their own unique features. So how do you navigate weighing up your options?

Did you know that 86% of club golfers use a trolley when they play golf?

If you play with a trolley – either push or electric – you’re best off having a suitable cart bag attached and ready to go.

Others enjoy heading straight to the tee with a quick-and-easy stand bag over their shoulders. However, one thing is inevitable in the golfing world, our time on the course is largely ruled by the weather and seasonal conditions.

When the outdoors is drastically different during the winter months, you may want to head out with something more practical, such as the waterproof cart bag that has lots of space to carry all of your accessories.

Please read on as we consider the benefits of the latest PING cart and stand bags as you’re using them during different seasons.


Your summer stand bag


You deserve to make the most of those pleasant summer rounds by heading out with the PING Hoofer Lite stand bag. This bag is incredibly light and weighs only an impressive 5lbs. You’ll be under no stress when it’s on your shoulders, and features a cushioned hip pad that will give you back comfort and support throughout your round.

With seven easily-accessible pockets, you’ll have space for everything you should need to take with you out on the course. This fun and nifty bag from PING is available in a variety of pleasant colourways, including blue/orange, and red/grey.



Another excellent choice from PING is the Hoofer 14 stand bag. This durable bag has a generous 14-way divider so you can organize your clubs to rest exactly where you’d like and they won’t clang together or make any noise while you’re walking. The bag also has 11 pockets so you’ll have more than enough space to organize your belongings.

PING have really gone out of their way to make this bag feel as comfortable as possible to carry. The shoulder pads can be adjusted at the front, and feature SensorCool technology so you’ll feel light and breezy as you’re walking along. The Hoofer 14 has also been fitted with an ergonomic strap connector that makes the bag feel balanced and stable.


Your winter cart bag

Let’s face it, there’s less time of day to play in the winter and it’s pretty much guaranteed to be quite chilly outside. You need a durable cart bag to take to the course with you when the elements are proving to be a challenge.


The PING Pioneer Monsoon cart bag will keep you going when you’re facing tough conditions. The bag has a 15-way club divider as well as an oversized putter well, so you’ll know where each of your clubs are and be able to grab them in a pinch.

The cart bag has grab handles and a strap channel to hold your bag securely in place when you attach it to your trolley. With 10 spacious pockets available, you’ll have all the storage room you could need for all your golfing accessories.

While we could spend all day weighing up the pros and cons of using each kind of bag at different times of the year, one thing is for certain, if you’re playing with a PING bag you’ll be having a good time. If you’re thinking of getting yourself a new golf bag we’d be more than happy to walk you through your options and offer you our recommendations.
