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.

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.

ClubGlider is available in several models offering protection for golfers ranging from weekend warriors to touring professionals.
