Disc golf bags are an absolute necessity for both the casual player and enthusiast. The sport requires players to have a variety of discs on hand to confront the challenges of the course. And there’s only one way to get those discs from one hole to the next because caddies are rare in this sport. So, time to grab the multi-purpose workhorse of the bag world! An ideal disc golf bag has to perform multiple functions.
But first, a little background.
How is disc golf better than golf?
In reality, disc golf is very similar to golf. It gets you outdoors, it's very technical and active, and there are still nine or 18 holes to play. You utilize something that resembles a frisbee, and it's a great alternative to playing golf for the day. Since it’s also not as technical as standard golf, it’s easier for you to jump right into it.
It is also a lot more cost-effective and simpler to play than golf, as you're not lugging around irons on your back or your golf cart. Without that heavy burden, there's also a lot less cost, where beginner golf clubs can be several hundred dollars, with higher quality approaching $1000 or more, whereas disc golf all in (including disc golf bags) can range up to a few hundred max.
What is the best disc golf bag?
The best can vary based on your overall needs, but if you're looking for a clear winner, it'll be the one that can hold the most discs and ancillary equipment. Yet, at the same time, you don't want to feel as if the sport you're playing is carrying a heavy backpack, so finding that right balance is key.
