How to Organize Your Golf Club Bag

Because speed of play is so important, organize your golf club bag such that all clubs and accessories used on the course can be retrieved and returned quickly. Golf club bags are classified into two types: carry (which you hold while walking) and cart (carried by the golf cart when you ride). These instructions will walk you through the process of organizing a cart bag.

A cart bag has two sections: the front and the back, where the hand-carry handle is positioned. When you stand behind a cart, the front is facing you.

Step 1

Sort the clubs according to their kind and quantity. Most cart bags are separated into four sections: one in the rear, two in the middle, and one at the front. Place the tallest clubs in the rear and the shortest in the front, such that the club heads cascade toward you and you can see all of the club heads as you face your bag.

Step 2

Woods and long irons (1–3), as well as a ball retriever (if you have one), should be kept in the rear compartment, middle irons (4–6) in the left-center portion, and short irons (7–9) in the right-center section.

Keep the wedges and putter in the front portion (unless the bag has a separate sleeve for the putter). Because the regulations allow for a maximum of 14 clubs, you will not have all of the available clubs in your bag and may need to modify this advise appropriately.

Step 3

Check the setup of your bag. Some cart bags have 15 separate slots for 14 clubs and a ball retriever.

Start at the rear with the longest club (your driver or 3-wood) and insert the rest of your clubs in decreasing order in the remaining slots, using the left and right half of the bag for odd- and even-numbered clubs. Put your putter in the front (unless a separate sleeve is supplied) and your ball retriever (if you have one) in the middle.

Step 4

Place your umbrella (if you have one) in the sleeve supplied on the side of the bag for this purpose. The sleeve is open at the top and bottom (for drainage), with a loop at the bottom to accept and fasten the umbrella tip.

Step 5

Store the most often used goods in the top and front (most accessible) side compartments (tees, spare balls, ball markers and divot repair tools).

Store goods for infrequent usage in the less-accessible pockets (rules book, spare golf gloves, sunglasses, suntan lotion, insect repellent, snacks, mints, cough drops). Use the least accessible pockets for the goods that are seldom used (bag top cover, rain parka, first-aid kit, car keys, valuables).
