Lightweight is important for golf bags.

Golf Bag Preference What golf bag should you choose? Golf bags vary widely in terms of design, size, weight, and the number of clubs they can hold. Most are designed specifically to either be used on a golf cart or to be carried on the shoulders, though most carry bags will also work on a cart in a pinch. When choosing a golf bag, it's important to consider your style of play, the number of clubs you currently own, and might own in the future. If you are traveling and wanted to bring your golf equipment, golf travel bags offer protection for your clubs, particularly when traveling by air. Hard-sided bags offer more protection, but are heavier, while soft-sided bags offer somewhat less protection, but tend to be lighter. The similarities between the luggage and golf bag categories start with the same user-friendly theme. In the case of golf bags, it's "enjoy golf; don't kill yourself." Therefore, lightweight is important for golf bags.
