Cart bags are golf bags that are intended to be used with a push cart or strapped to the back of a powered golf cart. Usually a little bigger and heavier than a stand bag, cart bags will be quite uncomfortable to carry around the course. Offering space for all your golf clubs, including a putter, umbrella, jacket and wet weather gear, this type of golf bags have the most storage room. As this type of golf bag is not intended to be carried by the golfer it is fitted with only a single basic strap that helps the golfer lift it out of their car and onto their push cart.
Golf stand bags are for golfers that like to carry their clubs around the golf course. With a stand bag there are no restrictions on where you can take your clubs. You don’t have to stick to the cart path and can walk across the greens to find the shortest route around the course. The main feature of stand bags that set them apart from cart bags are the flip out legs that allow the golfer to ‘stand’ the bag upright. As the stand bag is intended to be carried by the golfer, it is lightweight when compared to the cart bag.
