UPDATE: March, 2014 -- Well over two years since I attended the Walker Cup in Scotland my ClubGlider is still going strong and looks great after logging literally tens of thousands of miles to more golf resorts than I care to admit. Heck, I've even been to another Walker Cup, the 2013 version won by USA at the National Golf Links of America. I took my ClubGlider on the Long Island Railroad from JFK and thanked god for it's portability on the entire trip. If you are in the market for a golf travel cover - you need this product! (And incidentally, there are several new models available since my review - check them out at www.sunmountain.com)

From September, 2011: My new golf club travel bag, Sun Mountain's ClubGlider, arrived just in time for a dream trip to St. Andrews and Aberdeen, Scotland for the 2011 Walker Cup. Its maiden voyage was a 15 hour flight from San Diego to Edinburgh, Scotland on British Airways (via London).

And that was just the start of it.

Over 9 days, my back and shoulders were saved by the most innovative golf travel product that I have ever seen. Every time I trudged through an airport, or train station (I never rented a car), or even on a short walk through the London borough of Kensington, I wondered how I ever lived without a ClubGlider.

Here's how it works.


Starting with an extremely well thought out and constructed padded travel bag --with wheels at the lower part of the heavy-duty plastic bottom tray -- the ClubGlider's patented innovation is found at the middle of that molded tray. With an easy pull out, and then down, the ClubGlider's spring-loaded lightweight aluminum wheel assembly pops out like an airplane's landing gear. All of a sudden, the fifty pound ball ball-and-chain (otherwise known as a set of golf clubs, shoes, and rain gear) turns into a weightless cart that can be pushed and pulled with ease.

You really have to see it, and try it to truly "get" how the ClubGlider can change your golf travel life. To see my pre-Scotland ClubGlider packing demonstration, please check out the video on the right side of this page. If you travel with your clubs even once a year, the ClubGlider should be your 15th club.
