What are the best golf bags for women? Here's a collection of our favourites in a variety of different categories

What are the best golf bags for women this year? Which ones should you be buying to carry around your gear in on the course this season?

Golf bags come in three main varieties: cart bags, stand bags and pencil bags. Each variety is great for different purposes depending on your needs as a golfer. Pencil bags are ultra-lightweight, stand bags are more commonly known as ‘lightweight’ golf bags and cart bags are used with a trolley as they’re the biggest of the bunch.

Stand bags and pencil bags are ideal for when you’re walking the course as they’re easy to carry, whereas cart bags are great if you’re using a buggy or trolley.

Here are the best bags for women playing golf this season…
