Shopping for a new golf bag can be fairly complicated if you allow it to be. With so many options available you want to make sure you have something that’s functional on the golf course, but also compliments your style. For ladies, a golf bag can be an extension of personal fashion. Here are a few things to consider with women’s golf bags and a few models to consider while shopping.

The women’s golf bag category is in a much better place than it was ten years ago when many bag manufacturers perceived that women only wanted variations of pink golf bags. They couldn’t have been more wrong and today, while there are plenty of pink golf bag designs, women’s golf bags and accessories can be found in a multitude of colors and designs.

Here are a few items to consider when shopping for that new golf bag of whatever color you’d like.

Stand Bag or Cart Bag

The first thing to consider is if you’d like a golf stand bag or a cart bag.

A stand bag has the convenience of being lightweight and is the ideal choice if you walk a majority of your golf rounds. The stand that pops out makes it simple to transport and drop your bag without fear of it toppling over. The downside of a stand bag is that you can't fit as much into it, so be selective when packing your rain gear and accessories. But stand bags, for the most part, have adequate space.

A cart bag is a great choice if you ride in a cart or use a pushcart. Cart bags have more top dividers for your golf clubs and more interior pocket space. They are also more stable on pushcarts than stand bags. The downside of a cart bag is after you get everything into the bag they can get quite heavy and aren’t the easiest to get in and out of your trunk.

Golf Bag Price

With so many golf bag models you can spend as little or as much as you’d like. Cart bags normally cost a little more than stand bags. A safe midpoint to have in mind is $150. You can find a quality stand or cart bag above and below $150. Think of it like a car where the more you pay, the more bells and whistles you will get, but they all get the job done.

Color and Design

With ladies golf bags you not only have to make a decision on the color you like, but also the design. Many manufacturers design their women’s golf bags with a pattern to make them stand out from men’s bags.
