Golf bags are among the golf accessories that make up a golfer's full complement of equipment. Unlike some other accessories, golf bags are a necessity - after all, you have to have a way to carry your clubs around the golf course.

Golf bags come in many sizes and different styles, often designed for their specific tasks: ultra-lightweight, lightweight and stand bags for walkers; cart bags and staff bags (or tour bags) for golfers who prefer to ride in carts, for example.
