Top 8 Lightweight Golf Carry On Bags

In this article, we will list down the top lightweight golf carry on bags available in the market these days so you can see which one would give you the lightest load while walking through the greens.

Look, we must admit, there are some golfers that really love to walk while playing golf. We totally understand that, and fair enough, it is indeed a great form of exercise.

However, you don’t want to have added stress while walking so it would make sense to walk with a golf bag that weighs comfortably light.

Golf carry-on bags are generally cheaper than stand bags. Both carry and stand bags are sort of “carried” bags except that stand bags are provided with stand bars that you can tucked out so you don’t have to bend over to get your clubs.

In saying that though, there are three (3) models in our listing here that somehow incorporated the stand or micro-stand feature into their bags.

They still don’t look as robust though compare to those designed purposely as a stand bag.

Some people call these carry-on bags as a weekend bag, or Sunday bag or driving range bag but whatever they want to call it, the bags listed here are the type of bag that you’ll take when you’re bringing just enough clubs to get you through your leisure game and not the whole she-bang.

Anyway, here’s our list of the top 8 lightweight golf carry-on bags (from the heaviest to the lightest). All of these bags weigh no more than 3 pounds!
