How to calculate weight?

  1. Identify the number of items. (Ex: bag, irons, shafts, balls…)
  2. Calculate the weights of the individual items.
  3. Sum up the total weight.

Items’ weight may vary from brand to brand. It may also change based on the material used to manufacture the item. So, you should make a list of the items you want to carry, google the model number to get the exact weight, and sum it up.

Estimated items weigh:

Gloves0.2 to 0.11 lbs

Carry and travel bags are about 3 pounds

Carry and travel bags are about 3 pounds. They’re made of lightweight material, usually nylon, and come with a shoulder strap. These bags are designed for golfers on the course who need something that can fit into a golf cart or backpack without being too large or heavy for them to carry around all day.

Stand and cart bags weigh between 7 and 11 pounds

Stand and cart bags are between 7 and 11 pounds. The lighter stand bags are often made of nylon, while the heavier cart bags tend to be made of leather or canvas. Both styles have more pockets and dividers than other styles, but they also have less room for clubs in their allotted slots.

Stand bags are generally preferred because they’re easier to carry around (especially if you don’t want to lug your bag around on the trolley). You can also fold up a stand bag easily so it fits into your golf bag or trunk when not in use; this makes it ideal for transportability when traveling with your clubs.

A golf bag with clubs can weigh between 25 and 35 pounds

A bag with 14 clubs can weigh between 7 and 12 pounds. A bag with 6 clubs weighs between 3 and 5 pounds, while a bag with 2 clubs may only weigh 1 or 2 pounds.

A PGA Tour player’s bag is about 50 pounds

A PGA Tour player’s bag is about 50 pounds. It contains 14 clubs and a golf bag, which is the same weight as your average carry-on bag (15 pounds). The majority of professional golfers use oversize bags because they need to fit larger-sized drivers and Woods into their bags.

Clubs and shafts add between 25 to 30 pounds

Clubs and shafts add between 25 and 30 pounds. Your clubs are the heaviest item in your bag, so if you’re looking to lighten things up, make sure you take care of them!

The heavier a club is, the more force it will require when swinging it. With heavy equipment comes greater effort on behalf of both player and ball alike. The weight also affects how easily they travel through impact with the ground; this can cause problems if there isn’t enough spring action or forgiveness from friction between turf and club face during flight time (when all else is equal).

A golf bag with 14 clubs can weights 7 to 12 lbs

The weight of a golf bag with 14 clubs depends on the type of clubs, shafts, and grips used. A golf bag with 14 irons will have more than double the total weight as compared to an iron-only set. Similarly, if you have four Woods instead of three Woods then your total club count will increase by 20%.

What affects the weight of a Golf bag?

The weight of your golf bag depends on the type of bag, number of clubs, shafts, and accessories. The heavier your equipment gets, the more you will have to lift or carry with each shot. A typical setup for a professional golfer may consist of 14 clubs and shafts weighing between 25-35 pounds in total.

How to make a golf bag lighter?

There are a few ways to make your golf bag as light as possible. First, try to use lighter clubs and shafts. If you have an older set of clubs that don’t swing as well or are just weighed down with too much metal and wood, consider trading them in for something lighter.

A lot of people choose to buy new irons but then stick with them because they feel like they’re missing something when they take them out on the course—and this feeling can be true!

Second, consider using grips that aren’t made out of leather (or whatever material) altogether; if you’re going to use rubber grips or even canvas ones instead, these can help save some weight while still giving players comfort and control over their shots.


The most important thing to remember is that the weight of your bag should be comfortable for you, so if it seems too heavy then take a look at what else you can do to make it lighter. There are many ways to make your club carry easier (such as removing clubs from the bag or getting an anti-slip strap) but there’s also something about carrying all those clubs around that makes them feel like bricks sometimes!
