I normally walk the course with a pushcart but occasionally I’ll carry my clubs and it’s super important that you have something comfortable. Today, I’m going to be sharing my thoughts on the 3 best golf carry bags so you can choose the right one for your situation, and I’ll also talk about the cheapest place to pick each of them up.
When we were trying out all the golf bags we ranked them all based on how they performed on the course, how durable they were, and also how much they cost. We tried the best we could to find a cheaper option as well as a more expensive one.
That being said, here are the best carry bags:
- Titleist Players 14.
- Mizuno 4-Way.
- OGIO Shadow Fuse 304.
Continue reading for my full review of each and info on where to get them for the best price.

#3: OGIO Shadow Fuse 304 Bag
OGIO is one of my favorite bag companies and they’ve definitely put the same quality as before into the latest Fuse 304. I didn’t really know much about them until a few years ago but I was in the market for a new bag and they always seemed to come up again and again.
The two most important things for me are quality and comfort, and those 2 boxes were checked after giving it a try. Their bags are a little bit more expensive but I’m sure you’ve walked the course with a junky bag and felt what it’s like.
The material quality was just as good as any and it’s got a 4-way top with 5 zippered pockets, a towel loop, and an umbrella holder. There was plenty of room for all my stuff and the bag does come in a variety of colors and styles.
Here are the main PROS:
- It has one of the best straps on the market (which makes it super comfortable to carry).
- It’s incredibly light (just above 4 pounds).
- The pockets are a perfect size for all my gear.
Now the CONS:
- I’d prefer if it had more dividers that were full length.
- There is no insulated drink pocket.
- It’s not the cheapest bag on the market.
Overall, one of the most comfortable carry bags on the market (in my opinion). Check the price on Amazon. Here’s a demo video (it’s kind of goofy but it shows the bag):
#2: Mizuno 4-Way Bag
This bag is fairly similar to the OGIO in terms of performance (and it’s a bit cheaper), but there were a few things I liked more and that’s why I ranked it #2. All of these bags are solid and I’d recommend any of them but everyone is going to be a bit different and some bags fit differently. This bag and the OGIO were pretty similar to me.
The first thing I liked better was that this bag comes with an insulated drink pocket (which is pretty much a MUST HAVE). There’s nothing worse than walking around the course on a hot day and cracking your favorite beverage only to find out it’s warm and gross.
The second reason was that this bag comes with 1 more pocket so it had a bit more storage. The OGIO bag had plenty of room for all my stuff but I often see people who absolutely load up their bag with stuff and this one might be better for them.
Let’s cover some PROS:
- I found my clubs were easier to put in and take out of the bag.
- The quality of the material was top notch.
- It was comfortable and balanced to carry.
Now the CONS:
- It’s not the cheapest option out there.
- Again, I’d prefer it to have more club pockets that were full length.
Again, another really well–built golf bag that I’d recommend. Mizuno 4-Way – Check the price on Amazon.
#1: Titleist Players 14 Bag
If you’re looking for a premium golf bag that has all the features you’re looking for and will last your entire weekend golf career, this is for you. It’s not miles better than the other two but it does have a few additional things that some people might be looking for.
It still has all the great features that the other bags have, but it also comes with 14 full-length club dividers (which makes things a lot easier since nothing gets jammed up in your bag). Sometimes when you have a few clubs in the same pocket they’ll jam up and be tough getting out. That won’t be the case with this bag.
It’s a little bit more expensive but if you’re able to afford it (and you plan on using it a lot) I’d highly recommend it. The material and build quality seemed like something that should easily last 5-10 years (if not more).
Let’s talk PROS:
- It’s still super light (about 5 pounds) and easy to carry around.
- It comes with 9 pockets for all your gear.
- It comes in a range of colors.
Now the CONS:
- It’s the most expensive of the 3 bags.
- That’s pretty much it (I’ve had it a while now and it’s still holding up great).
Overall, it’s definitely my favorite bag in 2019 and would give it a thumbs up for sure. Check the price on Amazon. Here’s a demo video:
If you’re in the market for a new golf carry bag, any of the 3 I mentioned above will be a great option. They’re all high quality, perform well on the course, and the price is fairly reasonable. The one you decide to go with will all depend on your budget and what style of bag you prefer.
If you golf a lot and want something super high quality, go with the Titleist. If you’re more of a weekend golfer or are tighter on a budget, go with the OGIO or Mizuno. Like I said before, you can’t go wrong with any of them.
