Sunday Golf Loma Review: Not Just For The Driving Range

The rules of golf allow you to carry 14 clubs for a round of golf. Just because that’s the case, doesn’t mean you should, especially if you’re a beginner.

I’d argue that having fewer clubs will help you become a better golfer. It’ll force you to be more creative since you’ll have to hit different shots with the same club.

If you’re going to be carrying fewer clubs, you don’t really need a full-sized bag, which is where a Sunday bag comes into play. You might also want a smaller bag if:

  • You’re walking a quick 9 and want something light
  • You play a lot of par 3 courses and don’t need all your clubs
  • You go to the range and don’t bring all of your clubs

For me, 2 of those are true. I usually don’t bring all my clubs to the range and I often walk 9 holes with half a set. Because of this, the Loma bag from Sunday Golf seemed like a good fit.

If you don’t know, Sunday Golf is a newer company that makes bags. They started with smaller bags but have a range of different sizes. In this post, we’ll be going over what the Loma offers and who it is designed for.

Note. I’ve only used the Loma for 5 rounds or so. Obviously, we’ll spend more time with it to see how it holds up over time. I’ll continue using it and will keep updating this post with the things I like and don’t. Learn more about how we test here.

Sunday Golf Loma Product Details

The Looks

Whenever the Loma showed up at my door I was a bit surprised to see how small the box was. I knew the bag was small but it’s just a bit weird seeing one that small.

I was already familiar with the bags from Sunday Golf since I had 3 of their other models. The Loma was essentially the same in terms of materials, features, and quality (at first glance).

The material is nylon that’s designed to look a bit like canvas. From what I’ve seen with the other bags, it’s pretty durable and I’ve had no issues with staining or tearing.

I went with the Midnight Green color, which is pretty nice. My other bags were Heather Gray and Navy Blue. I liked those as well. If you don’t, they have a range of other colors.

A bag like this isn’t going to have a premium design, so most of the finishes are plastic (same with a lot of bags from TM, Callaway, and Ping). The zippers are string with a plastic cap, the strap connections are plastic, and the grab handle is plastic.

Just because that’s the case doesn’t mean it’s poor quality. Plastic is going to be lighter than other materials. The good news is that the rim of the club dividers is rubber, which will help protect your clubs.

The Features

2-Way Top: There are 2 slots for your clubs to go in. They’ll hold 6 clubs and have full-length dividers. You might be able to squeeze an extra club in there but it won’t be very smooth. If you have midsized or jumbo grips, you’ll obviously fit fewer.

Carry Strap: Since the bag is small and light, it just comes with a single strap. A double would be more comfortable, but you most likely won’t be carrying this bag for too long. You also have a plastic handle for short distances.

Ball Pocket: This pocket isn’t big enough to fit an actual box of balls but will hold 12 loose balls easily. I know the game can be tough, but that should be more than enough.

Frosty Pocket: This is an insulated pocket that will hold 2 cans of whatever your favorite drink is. If you don’t bring drinks and are a hacker, you can use this pocket for more balls.

Mesh Pocket: This is a small mesh pocket that you can use for a number of things. Scorecard holder, snacks, ball marker, or whatever else you can think of.

Tee Holder: I really like this feature because it saves me from having to dig around in my pockets to find a tee. A simple idea, but one that’s pretty convenient.

Valuables Pocket: This is a velvet-lined pocket that you can put your phone, wallet, and keys in. You could also throw your sunglasses in there if you don’t want them to get scratched.

Storage Pocket: This is where you can store all your extra stuff. It’s not big enough to fit a pair of shoes or a jacket, but it’ll hold your extra tees, driver tool, club cleaner, etc.

Towel Holder: Don’t be the guy who comes to the course with mud caked on your clubs. Put a towel on the loop and wipe down your clubs after using them.

Velcro Glove Holder: My hands sweat when the weather gets hot. I like being able to put my glove on the bag to let it dry out. Much better than just tossing it in my back pocket.

The Performance

The bag could have all the features in the world and be built extremely well, but is there any point in buying it if it doesn’t perform well? My answer would have to be, no.

With a golf bag, the main thing to look at is how well it’s designed. Is it balanced or do the clubs fall out? Do the dividers work or is there a lot of club tangle?

In my opinion, the bag is comfortable enough for what it’s designed for. Using the strap or plastic carrying handle isn’t a problem if you’re going to the range or playing a par 3 course.

If you’re planning on carrying this bag on a full-sized course then it may not be ideal. I’m sure you could, but I just don’t know how comfortable that would be.

If this is the case for you, you might want to consider the Loma XL. It’ll fit 2 extra clubs and comes with a double strap. It’s a bit more money but I think it’ll be worth it.

It all depends on what you’ll be using the bag for.

As for the club dividers, a bag this small (and only 2 dividers), you do have some friction putting the clubs in and taking them out. I’ll be curious to see how the inside of the bag holds up over time, but I don’t see a way around this with a Sunday bag.

The Quality

I know the Loma isn’t overly expensive, but a golf bag gets beat up and should be built well. Since I haven’t had it for too long, I don’t feel as though I can comment on the quality.

What I can say is that I’ve used the other bags from Sunday Golf for at least 50 rounds. The only issue I’ve found was that the legs weren’t as sturdy as I’d like.

The El Camino, for example, had legs that were a little bit narrow. From what I’ve seen since, they look wider on newer models. You also get a bit of opening/closing when you walk. It doesn’t cause any problems, just a bit annoying at times.

That said, the legs on the Loma look to be better.

The materials and zippers are the same as the other bags, both of which have been pretty solid. I haven’t had any problems with staining, tearing, or breaking.

I’m going to continue using the Loma and will report what I find, either good or bad. If you have any experience with any of their bags, be sure to leave a comment below.

The Bottom Line

After taking everything into account, you might still be wondering if the Loma is right for you. In my opinion, it’s a solid choice for what it’s designed for and I don’t think there’s a better option out there (currently).

It’s a very niche bag and won’t be for most people. The materials aren’t premium, but considering the price, the value you get is pretty good.

If you’re looking for a bag to bring to the range, it’s a good fit. If you want something for the par 3 course, it’s a good fit. It could also be a good fit if you want something for walking a quick 9 holes.

If 6 clubs aren’t going to be enough or you plan on walking a full-sized course, the slightly bigger Loma XL could be better. It comes with a double strap and will be quite a bit more comfortable. Also, it’ll hold a couple of extra clubs.

We also have a guide on our favorite golf bags, which you can see HERE. It goes over a number of different options at different price points to help you find the right option.
