Personalized golf bags are a luxury item that signify ego, attachment and humor. Corporate logos are often embroidered down the side of the bag, whereas names or initials are usually relegated to the ball pocket.
Customers often ask if they can get their name put on a bag after they have bought it. I always have to tell them “no.” You can’t even get the rain hood personalized once the bag leaves the manufacturer, and I don’t know any upholstery businesses, monogram shops or shoe repair places that will touch a golf bag, at least around here.
A customer recently ordered a Cleveland staff bag in navy and white, with his name on the ball pocket. He was able to get matching navy and white headcovers from Cleveland Golf for his driver and a fairway wood. I have not tried to order matching headcovers before but I think it’s a good idea to offer them. I plan to ask other vendors if these are available.
A fan of our shop and an avid golfer who lives in Canada ordered a Callaway cart bag and got his name, Canada’s flag and our website URL embroidered on his bag. He sent us a photo of the bag to show us how nicely it turned out. It made me think that I should take photos of the logo’d or personalized bags we get to show them off a bit. Joey's bag is a nice bit of advertising for us, Callaway and Canada.
