Golf Digest’s 2011 Golf Bag Hot List is out and we are proud to announce that two of our bags were awarded Hot List Gold!

From 77 bags, the editors who make up the Hot List judges panel deemed only eight worthy of Gold. What an honor that two of those eight are Sun Mountain golf bags.

Our Gold winners are the Superlight 3.5 carry bag and the C-130 cart bag. Our Swift X ultra-lightweight carry bag was also recognized with a Silver award.

It ensures you can quickly find and replace all clubs, it conveniently organizes your accessories and gadgets, and it’s lightweight without sacrificing durability.”

We totally agree.

Specifically about the winning bags, the judges said that the Superlight 3.5 is ‘the latest chapter from a company with a history of smart carry bags focused on details.’

For the C-130, the judges said, ‘every feature on this cart bag is practical and always in the right place.’
