Golf isn’t exactly an inexpensive sport to play. Between clubs and greens fees, you can pay a small fortune to get in an 18-hole round. But it doesn’t always have to be such a burden on your wallet. There are plenty of bargains out there when it comes to equipment, especially if you’re in the market for cheap golf bags.
Now with less expensive bags you’re probably not going to get all the bells and whistles that come with the pricier ones or the bigger brands (though you will see a few familiar names below). But just because the bag costs under $100 and is from a lesser-known company, doesn’t mean it isn’t high-quality. There are plenty of highly-functional and stylish bags that certainly get the job done at a fraction of the price of some of the ones from the industry titans.
So we’ve compiled a list below of some of the more popular inexpensive golf bags to help you make your decision. There are a variety of styles on the list, including stand and cart bags, among others.
We also have a number of other posts about golf bags, including one covering the best golf bags with coolers, another about the top golf bags for walking and carrying, and, if you’re a fan of a particular brand, a post featuring some of the most popular Callaway stand and carry bags as well as one on the highest-rated TaylorMade golf bags.
But keep reading below to see some of the best golf bags under $100 available today.
Note: this post isn’t in any particular order.

7. Palm Springs Sunday Golf Bag
Some players don’t carry all 14 clubs or need so much storage when they’re on the course. If you fall into that category, then check out the Palm Springs Sunday Golf Bag. It’s smaller and lighter than regular stand or cart bags. It weighs just 3.5 pounds and has a 7-inch diameter, 6-way padded top. While the Palm Springs Sunday Bag is ideal for walking, you can certainly use it in a cart as well. It’s also perfect for smaller Par-3 courses and the driving range, places you usually don’t need a full set of 14 clubs.
Yes, it is a smaller bag, but the Palm Springs Sunday Bag certainly has characteristics and features of a full-size bag. It has 4 zippered pockets, including garment, golf ball, and valuables compartments. Other highlights include a mesh pocket to hold a drink, a velcro glove holder, padded double-shoulder strap, towel ring, an umbrella holder, and a rain hood. So you get all the aspects of a regular golf bag, just in a smaller package.
This particular color is Blue/Black, if you want another option, take a look at the Palm Springs Sunday Bag in White/Black here.

- Has a water bottle pocket and velcro glove holder
- It has less space than regular golf bags

8. Orlimar Pitch and Putt Golf Lightweight Stand Carry Bag
If you thought the Palm Springs Sunday Bag we talked about above was small, then feast your eyes on this little guy. The Pitch and Putt Golf Lightweight Stand Carry Bag from Orlimar isn’t designed to be brought out onto an 18-hole, full-length course as it only holds about 6 or 7 clubs and has minimal storage. It is, however, ideal for Par-3 and Executive courses as well as the driving range.
Weighing just 1.95 pounds, the bag measures 31 1/2 inches long and the two-compartment top diameter is only 3 1/4 inches by 4 1/4 inches. It has 1 storage compartment best suited for golf balls and tees and a handle for easy carrying. It’s available in 4 colors — Black (pictured), Blue, Brick Red, and Orange. If you’re an avid golfer, it’s always a good idea to have a “pitch and putt” bag so you don’t have to lug around your regular-sized one when going to the range. And priced at under $35, it’s quite the bargain.
