What Makes a Women’s Golf Stand Bag Different?

This post has been updated for 2020 with our preferred women’s golf stand bag models from Sassy Caddy and Sun Mountain. 

Sassy Caddy Women's Golf Stand BagWhen we recently attended the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, we asked a few of the leading vendors of women’s golf bags to explain what differentiates a women’s golf stand bag from a men’s bag. We received our best answer from Emily, the designer and the creator of Sassy Caddy. As she walked us through the features of her highly fashionable women’s golf stand bags, she said the difference comes down to three key things:
  • The bags are more stylish and have greater personality
  • The pockets of the bags are tailored to more specialized uses
  • Women’s golf stand bags are shorter than men’s golf carry bags to provide a better fit for the shorter length of women’s clubs

Beyond the female-focused features, the stand bags from Sassy Caddy met our expectations for being solidly constructed and very well appointed in terms of standard bag design. The bags had six full-length dividers, weighed only 5 pounds, and as mentioned, they offered a multitude of specialized pockets for all possible needs.  The Sassy Caddy bags are a full two inches shorter than standard men’s stand bags.

Two unique bonus features come with the Sassy Caddy stand bags.

  • Each bag comes with a coordinated, detachable purse
  • The bags’ fabrics are weather-resistant, stain-resistant, and fade-resistant with 1000-2500 hours of UV protection incorporated into the fabric

Two of Sassy Caddy’s recent stand bag offerings are New Orleans and Zesty, and they are currently being sold at a fantastic price.  Click on the images to see Amazon’s current pricing and bag specifications.  Additional new models can also be found on Amazon.

  1. Wow, that is fascinating. I have never thought about there being significant differences between men and women’s bags but that was interesting. Shows how much I know about golf. :))

    I guess the women want a color coordinated purse to go with the bag, especially if they are spending a fair bit of time on the course.

    1. In the conversations I have had with women’s golf stand bag designers there is definitely a greater emphasis on fashion for many of them. And, these carry bags tend to have a greater degree of specialization in the various pockets and storage areas.

      In all actuality Sassy Caddy was the only vendor that I have seen that had the matching hand bag. Nice touch that sets them apart.

  2. What an interesting read, I have to confess I don’t play golf but found your post really interesting.

    I see Funkydunc’s point when he mentions that there are so many differences between a ladies golf bag and a man’s.

    I think the designs are really cool. I most certainly would want the handbag and a pair of matching golf shoes wouldn’t go amiss either! X:-).

    My eldest brother lives, sleep’s and breathes golf, I shall forward him your site as he will most certainly find it interesting and informative.


    1. Thanks for the comment. The Sassy Caddy bags are truly original. Unfortunately I don’t think they come with matching shoes, yet.

  3. Fascinating! I must admit I’m not a golf player. However these bags are designed with women and girls in mind. Due to the fact they are shorter and they come with matching accessories! My brother plays a lot. He says you can always make up the lack of skills in golf by being fashionable! And these golf bags certainly are up for the task! What is the warranty on theses golf bags?

    1. For some folks looking good is THE thing! That would already be one strike against me.

      The Sassy Caddy bags offer a 30 day return policy.

      Thanks for stopping by!


  4. It’s interesting that women’s golf bags have more personality put into them. I think it makes sense for anyone to have that, though! It’s nice that it’s shorter for the shorter length of women’s golf clubs.

    1. The Sassy Caddy bags in particular add a bunch of cool patterns, function and options. Golf should be fun. These bags add a little bit of personality and flair to the game.
