GolfTest USA recently published the results of its year-long test of golf travel bags and the Sun Mountain ClubGlider received the highest overall score and the coveted 5 STAR rating. ClubGlider offers extendable legs and wheels to support 100% of the weight while eliminating the repeated bending and lifting required with traditional travel bags. With the ClubGlider, walking around is effortless thanks to the maneuverability of the bag’s pivoting wheels. ClubGlider is available in three different models with prices ranging from $269 – $349.

GolfTest USA research findings include, “The feature the testers commented on and liked the best was how easy it was to pop out the recessed wheels and then pull the ClubGlider along with a minimum of effort. Another feature that pleased them was the ability to fold it up when storing it in the trunk of the car or in a closet in a hotel room. The ClubGlider offered the protection of a hard rigid travel case without the difficulty of finding a place to store it when not in use.”

GolfTest USA continued, “The ClubGlider is extremely easy to maneuver. The testers liked the fact that ClubGlider stood right next to them as they advanced through the line at check-in. The Sun Mountain ClubGlider Travel Golf Bag easily meets our requirements to be awarded the GolfTest USA’s Seal of Excellence. As we like to say, “You are never sorry when you buy the best”. We are also, without hesitation, awarding the ClubGlider our coveted 5 STAR rating.”

ClubGlider literally glides from car to luggage counter and back again with retractable legs that easily extend and then tuck away securely for travel. And, thanks to the maneuverability of ClubGlider’s pivoting wheels, walking around is effortless. ClubGlider offers all or more of the protection and storage space of a traditional golf travel bag while eliminating the heavy lifting and constant bending normally required to get through the airport.

Following a successful inaugural year in 2008, Sun Mountain increased the offering to three different models. ClubGlider Cascade is the entry-level model. ClubGlider Meridian is the new name for the original ClubGlider. ClubGlider Pro is the largest of the three models made to accommodate tour players oversized staff bags or two lightweight carry bags.

Benefits of ClubGlider include legs that support 100% of the weight, eliminating on average over 22 pounds of pressure from the golfer’s shoulders and back. ClubGlider can also be loaded while standing, eliminating the need to bend all the way over as with other travel bags. Additionally, with the ClubGlider, the repeated bending and lifting while waiting in line is a thing of the past. Plus, ClubGlider can support additional luggage, freeing the traveler’s hands. ClubGlider is simple, fast and easy to use with retractable legs and wheels that lock securely for travel. ClubGlider includes heavy-duty two-way zippers, thick foam padding extending down the travel bag to protect clubheads and shafts, internal storage pockets, internal cinch straps, ballistic fabric, vinyl-reinforced wear areas, and a lift-assist handle.
