ClubGlider® revolutionized the golf travel bag with the introduction of extendable legs that support all of the weight. That same technology is now being applied to a line of wheeled-luggage that includes a suitcase and a carry-on. ClubGlider Suitcase offers the same ease of use as the golf travel bag thanks to the extendable leg that supports 100% of the weight and then simply retracts away for travel. The suitcase is constructed with the same highly durable, ballistic-style nylon as the ClubGlider Meridian golf travel bag. The ClubGlider Carry-On coordinates with the suitcase and is sized to fit in airplane overhead bins. Both pieces are available now at $349.99 for the suitcase and $239.99 for the carry-on.
Ronald Montesano from Golf WRX took our ClubGlider Meridian golf travel bag for a trial run and rated it 4.7 out of 5 for a score of “Fantastic”.
Here’s a summary of what he had to say:
Pros: Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider Meridian is the only golf travel bag that comes equipped with four wheels — one pair with retractable legs — that hold 100 percent of the weight. That provides stability and convenience while transporting clubs through airports, hotels and parking lots.
Cons: With an MSRP of $289, it resides in the higher price range of travel bags.
Bottom Line: The ClubGlider travel bag from Sun Mountain makes traveling easier with a set of added wheels and retractable legs, keeps clubs safe with thick foam padding on the interior and protects against wear with reinforced vinyl on the bottom of the bag. There’s plenty of value here.
For 2014, ClubGlider golf travel bags are available in four different models – Pro, Meridian, Journey and the new Tour Series – offering protection for golfers ranging from weekend warriors to touring professionals. Retail prices are $349, $289, $219, and $319 respectively.

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.
