This post has been updated for 2020 with our preferred women’s golf stand bag models from Sassy Caddy and Sun Mountain.
When 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
Sassy Caddy Women’s Golf Stand Bag
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.
There are two unique bonus features that 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.
