The Best Way To Travel With Golf Clubs – No Case Needed

Golf clubs are a pain to travel with. They can be bulky and heavy, but more importantly, they’re made out of metal and will dent your luggage if you’re not careful. But if you want to golf on your next trip, don’t worry—there are ways to make it work!

Golf clubs.

Golf clubs are made of metal and weigh a lot. Metal is heavy. If you forget to bring your golf bag and clubs, you won’t be able to play golf. You will also have to pay an extra fee on top of all the fees that airlines charge for carry-ons (which are already too high).

If you don’t know how much your golf clubs weigh, it’s time to find out. Have your friends help you with this task, because they may have already bought their own sets and can confirm how much theirs weigh (or at least give some guidance).

A travel bag.

A travel bag is an essential accessory for any golfing trip. A travel bag is a durable bag that can be used to store and transport your golf clubs. If you are traveling by plane, a travel bag is the best way to protect your clubs from damage or theft. The best travel bags have wheels, a pull handle and shoulder strap so they are easy to use on both flat surfaces and stairs. They are made from high-quality materials such as leather or canvas because these materials are more durable than cheaper fabrics like polyester or nylon.


  • Towels. Don’t forget your travel towel! You will need it in your carry-on bag and/or checked bag. A hotel towel is not as nice as a travel towel, because a hotel towel is usually smaller, thinner, and it gets used by everyone in the room (and sometimes by some people who aren’t even staying at that hotel).
  • Deodorant (in case you sweat more than normal while playing golf).

Bubble Wrap.

The best way to travel with golf clubs is without a case. The reason for this is that the golf industry has produced some really high quality, really expensive bags that can hold all of your clubs. These bags typically have padding built into them and they often have pockets, straps, and compartments specifically designed to store your clubs in such a way that they don’t take up much room.

What’s more is that many of these bags are also made out of waterproof fabric so if you get caught in the rain or accidentally leave your bag on top of you car while it’s raining (which happens when I’m traveling) then your clubs will remain dry!

There are many other reasons why investing in an expensive bag rather than just using one of those ugly plastic cases: firstly because even though the cases may seem sturdy at first glance; over time they will cause scratches on both sides as well as dents which ultimately reduces their value substantially; secondly because most cases lack proper padding which means any damage done during transport will be permanent (as opposed to dented/scratched parts from inside); thirdly because bubble wrap acts like extra protection against impact damage caused by other items inside your carry-on luggage.

Hefty zip-top bags.

There are tons of options for carrying golf clubs, but if you don’t have a case to protect your precious clubs while flying, many airlines will not allow them onboard. This is where zip-top bags come in handy. They are inexpensive and can be used as a protective cover for your entire set of irons or even just the head of your driver.

Duct tape.

  • Use duct tape to secure the club heads.
  • Use duct tape to secure the golf bag’s handle.
  • Use duct tape to secure the club heads to the travel bag.
  • Use duct tape to secure the travel bag’s handle to the golf bag.

If you’re golfing on a plane, don’t forget to bring your clubs!

If you’re traveling with golf clubs, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Golf clubs are allowed in both the cabin and checked baggage
  • Most airlines will not accept golf clubs as part of your carry-on luggage
  • Check with your airline before flying with a set of golf clubs
