HOW DO YOU HAUL YOUR CLUBS?

Hitting the links this weekend? Car shopping? If you’ve got a standing tee time and are in the market for a new ride, we’ve road-tested our clubs in some of the most fitting models on the lots and are offering up suggestions.

We could have made this list easy and simply named SUVs, Cross-overs and wagons…but we weren’t about to take the easy way out…

Lima, Peru. October 23, 2010. Right hand side view of a gray Dodge Challenger SRT8 HEMI 6.1. V8 engine. Mint condition american two-door sports car with aluminum wheels in San Isidro District of Lima. 10,156 units were built. This picture was taken on a beautifull day with a camera having a Leica lens.

Not only do you get the Challenger’s fierce styling and the roar of the V8 HEMI (if you opt for it), but there is a surprising amount of trunk space, 16.2 cubic feet to be exact. Plenty of room for four bags and all your passengers.

 

 

Abbotsburry, UK - April 11, 2012: Volkswagen Golf on a UK country road with a wood road sign. Volkswagen is a German automobile manufacturer and the original and biggest-selling marque of the Volkswagen Group.

Come on, it’s in the name! But for a compact car—the Golf has some great space. You can easily fit two bags in the cargo area and yes, you could fit more if you folded the seats down…but then the passengers wouldn’t fit. Still, for a couple of golfers (maybe even three), this compact VW is a solid choice.

 

 

Washington DC, USA-March 28, 2016: This black Chevrolet Impala was spotted in a Northwest Washington DC neighborhood. The Impala is an affordable luxury car with prices starting at $27095 for the base model with a 4 cylinder engine.

My father-in-law proved to me that his Impala probably has the roomiest trunk I’ve seen in years. We easily loaded up gear for our foursome and had plenty more room in the cabin for our passengers. The Impala feels more refined and certainly is not your grandpa’s car.

 

 

Washington DC, USA-April 2, 2014: This blue Ford Taurus was spotted in a Washington DC neighborhood. It is powered by a variety of engine choices, a turbo 4, a V6 standard engine and a turbo V6. It is a large car and gets 19-29 MPG with the standard V6 engine.

After all these years, it’s easy to forget the Taurus…but if you’re an avid golfer and you need a comfortable car that seats four+ along with four golf bags, then the Taurus may be what you’re looking for. With just over 20 cubic feet of trunk space–there’s plenty of bag space plus lots of legroom in the backseat.

 

 

Geneva, Switzerland - March 1, 2016: Chevrolet Corvette Z51 Stingray on display at the 86th International Geneva Motor Show in Palexpo, Geneva.

Chevrolet Corvette

A sports car…for golfers? Sure! On the surface it may seem a little crazy, but when you look at the standard Corvette, you see that there are 15 cubic feet of trunk space (almost as much as the five-passenger Dodge Challenger). Plenty of room for two sets of clubs…and since it’s a two-seater, that works out perfectly!

 

How do you like to get to the green in style?
