Season Stretchers – Waterproof Golf Bags

It’s hard to believe that are already considering the end of the golf season in the larger part of Canada. While there are a few months left to play, the environment gets a little more challenging. To get the most out of this time we often require some adaptions in equipment, clothing, and accessories.

The weather is cooler, the golf ball flies and rolls a little less, and the turf can get a little mushy. To that end we are providing a compendium of products to help you take the golf year deep into the calendar.

Once we hit the depth of winter we don’t want you to have any regrets about the rounds you COULD have played. Get them in while you can with the help of the following products:

Waterproof Golf Bags

The age-old problem for golfers who ventured to play in all weather conditions, particularly wet ones, was that by the time you completed your round it may take days to dry out the contents of your golf bag. Fear not, manufacturers have responded with bags featuring weather resistant materials and seam-sealed pockets so there is no need to dump out and dry everything in your bag after playing on a rainy fall day. Here are three of the best.
