Holiday Gifts for Golfers

Forbes writer Larry Olmsted penned the Best Holiday Gifts for Golfers and included the Sun Mountain ClubGlider golf travel bag.

Here’s what he said about ClubGlider –

“Anyone who flies to play golf, even just once or twice a year, will greatly appreciate a high quality travel bag (especially since the airlines, not exactly known for tender handling, typically waive blame for damage to golf clubs). I fly for golf more than a dozen times a year, and I’ve tried just about every top brand on the market, and for years I have used the ClubGlider from Sun Mountain. I recommended it last season, but for 2014 the new version is markedly better. Mine is about five years old and I just tested a new one they sent and it is significantly lighter – about three pounds – yet with better padding around the club heads, more effective tightening straps and easier to access side pockets. But the ClubGlider keeps its major advantage, the unique innovation of retractable legs with wheels, which makes it roll much, much better than other versions – it becomes upright on four wheels and you can even push it. This is especially great in airport check-in lines when everyone else is kicking or dragging their bag a few feet each time the line moves. You don’t have to use the extra legs and it still rolls fine when pulled behind you….”

For 2014, ClubGlider is available in four models: Pro, Meridian, Journey and the new Tour Series. See them all at www.sunmountain.com.

ESPN Suggests Sun Mountain Waterproof Golf Bag as Golf Gift Idea

In a recent article about golf gift ideas, ESPN writer Michael Collins suggests the Sun Mountain H2NO Lite waterproof golf bag.

He had this to say:

A waterproof golf bag? As a former pro caddie, this is something I can really appreciate. The bag weighs only 4.5 pounds and when the rain hood is used, everything inside stays dry. Even the zippers are waterproof!

As long as there isn’t lightning, your clubs are ready for action. If the golfer in your life walks more rounds than they ride, this is the bag that will give you hero status.

New for 2014 Speed Cart V1 Sport Golf Push Cart

The Sun Mountain Speed Cart® golf push cart is one of the most revolutionary products in golf. Three-wheeled, ergonomically efficient folding push carts did not exist prior to Sun Mountain’s invention of Speed Cart in 1999.

The beauty of a push a cart versus the old-fashioned pull cart is that the ergonomic and adjustable handle positions arms and shoulders in their most natural position and pushing takes advantage of the forward momentum of walking.

With the new E-Z Latch System, Speed Cart’s patented design folds and unfolds easier than ever, and allows simple handle height adjustment.

The adjustable brackets secure the bag without straps.

The umbrella straps hold a closed umbrella while the umbrella mount secures an open umbrella to shield you from rain or sun.

The accessories tray includes a bungee score card holder, drink holder and a mesh headcover tray.

The handle-mounted hand brake includes a new pin system to more securely lock the wheels in place.

New synthetic wheels with sealed precision ball bearings and solid foam tires ensure an easy roll and require no maintenance.

Micro-Cart Golf Push Cart Folds Smaller

Micro-Cart from Sun Mountain is a four wheel golf push cart that folds 25% smaller and weighs 20% less than leading push carts. Weighing only 13 lbs. and folding down to only 52 cubic inches, Micro is a very appropriate name.

The small folded footprint and light weight of Micro-Cart make it easy to get in and out of a vehicle. Micro-Cart comes with no assembly required and folds and unfolds in two easy motions. The new and improved Micro-Cart comes standard with the E-Z Latch for hassle-free handle height adjustment.

The four wheels come standard with low maintenance solid foam tires and adjustable front axle to accommodate the largest of golf bags. And, due to the patented four-wheel design, the cart has a low center of gravity which results in superior stability on the course.

The Next Evolution in Golf Travel Bags is Here

The next evolution in golf travel bags, ClubGlider is the only golf travel bag with extendable legs that support 100% of the weight.

This leg allows the ClubGlider to be loaded from a standing position, eliminating the need to bend all the way over as with other golf travel bags. Fully loaded, ClubGlider’s legs support 100% of the weight, eliminating on average over 45 pounds of pressure from your shoulders and back. Thanks to the maneuverability of ClubGlider’s pivoting wheels, walking around is effortless. With the ClubGlider golf travel bag, the repeated bending and lifting while waiting in line is a thing of the past. And the wheels retract in one easy motion for secure travel.

ClubGlider includes heavy-duty two-way zippers, thick foam padding extending down the travel bag to protect clubheads and shafts, internal cinch straps, storage pockets, reinforced wear areas, and a lift-assist handle.

And, we’re not the only ones that think it’s great; ClubGlider was awarded Hot List Gold by Golf Digest magazine.

Most Breathable Golf Rain Gear

Sun Mountain’s most breathable rain suit, Cumulus, is fully seam-sealed and guaranteed waterproof.

 

Incorporating 2.5 layer technology, Cumulus has a woven shell laminated to a waterproof, breathable membrane, with a protective inner layer. This slick inner layer will be appreciated when taking the suit on and off as well as during the golf swing when it slides over clothing rather than catching and offering resistance to the swing.

 

In addition, a durable water repellent finish provides surface water and stain resistance.

 

Cumulus Jacket features include a pleated back which allows an expanded range of motion, a two-way front zipper that lies flat and out of the way when putting, adjustable hem and cuffs, zippered hand warmer pockets, and a stand up collar.

 

Cumulus rain pants offer the same ultra-lightweight, 2.5 layer, guaranteed waterproof and breathable construction along with a partial elastic waist and zipper fly, zippered hand warmer pockets and wallet pockets, deep lower leg zippers, and a snap system that allows length to be shortened by 2.5”.

 

The compact folded size of the Cumulus provides for easy storage in your golf bag.

 

This unbelievably lightweight and breathable rain suit comes with a two-year waterproof guarantee.
