Golf stand bags are designed for players who walk the golf course. Whereas golf cart bags are a bit larger and heavier, the best golf stand bags balance ergonomics, portability, weight, and capacity, resulting in bags that have plenty of room for the essentials, while still being light enough to comfortably carry around the course all day long.
