In all of the reviews we do we take money seriously. We understand that most of us do not have an endless supply of it so we want to always ensure that the product you buy deserves the dollars you spent. In the next set of reviews, we have decided to be a little more precise and make some recommendations for bags specifically within set price ranges. We will specifically be looking at, the 5 best golf bags under 100 dollars, the 5 best golf bags under 150 dollars and the 5 best golf bags under 200 dollars.
We have chosen to not overlap the ranges so you can compare the top 5 bags in each of our articles and then decide for yourself if you want to move up a category. When possible and where justified we try to cover different bag type options in each price range. We think it is equally of interest to compare what the extra spend is getting you. Please take note that our price ranges are based on the recommended selling prices from the manufacturers so we compare what is comparable. At any given time, sales and promotions come up but, in our opinion, it still makes more sense to look at all things being equal to start and go from there.
In this first article we evaluate the 5 best golf bags under 100 dollars. Due to the budget price point/constraint, the top-5 rated products are dominated by carry and stand bags. Following our evaluations we concluded that the larger bags at this price level were just not offering enough to be considered in this year’s ratings.
It was a fun group of bags to evaluate. We found that in this budget market segment there was far greater competition from some of the lesser known bag manufacturers to compete. Their products tended to stack up better against the traditional big names in golf bag manufacturing in this market segment as compared to the mid-range and premium market segments. In the end we picked the Wilson Staff – Feather Stand Bag as the winner of the 5 Best Golf Bags under 100 dollars.

The Wilson Feather Carry bag despite its budget price is a full featured golf stand bag. While other bags in this category tend to be streamlined it offers everything much more expensive bags do at a greatly reduced price. While doing so Wilson Staff has been able to keep the bag weight at a very manageable and lightweight 5 lbs. In addition, the four-point double strap makes it a comfortable carry on any course.
The Feather Carry bag comes with a 5-way top with 2 full-length dividers providing ample space for a set of clubs. There is plenty of storage room divided between its array of 5 pockets so your gear and gadgets will be well taken care of.
While it does just slide under the price limit the Wilson Staff Feather Carry bag has more than enough features to justify it. It leads the group in almost all of the categories we judged and even if it weighed a little more than some of the other bags the loss of a couple of lbs was proportional to the extras that are included. So, for those looking for a carry bag that offers the features of a Mid-Range bag at a budget price the Feather Carry bag is the bag for you.
Our Runner Up – The 5 Best Golf Bags under 100 dollars – Orlimar SRX 5.6 Golf Stand Bag
Our runner up for the best golf bag under 100 dollars is the Orlimar SRX 5.6 Golf Stand Bag. It put up a good fight for the top of the group but did not quite get there. It is slightly smaller than the Feather bag which may actually be a preferred option for some. We instead found it caught between a streamlined stand bag and a full sized one.
Orlimar SRX 5.6 Golf Stand Bag
- 7 lbs
- 7.5-inch, 5-way graphite top
- Bottom lift handle
- Padded double carry strap and hip pad
- Tee holder
- Umbrella holder
- Rain hood cover
- 5 zippered pockets
- Velour lined valuables pocket
- Hydration bottle sleeve
- Towel ring with Velcro glove attachment
- Easy release, tempered stand leg
- Light weight dobby nylon materials
Nevertheless, the Orlimar SRX 5.6 stand bag does has plenty of storage space and 5 zippered pockets to cover the various needs of the golfer. A nice feature that is not included in many bags at this price is the hydration bottle sleeve. The double strap works well but not quite matching the comfort level of the top-5 leader. At 7 lbs it is the heaviest golf bag in the group and this also played a role its ultimate runner up rating.
The roughly 20% price savings as compared to our top recommendation could be used to add a dozen balls to your bag or just keep dollars in your pocket. All things considered we have no trouble seeing the value in this bag and no trouble in recommending it as our runner up golf bad under 100 dollars
