And Sun Mountain makes bags especially for the Speed Cart and riding on a cart. Did you just buy a new golf bag with six to 10 pockets and you are feeling you got the best light-weight bag available? Feel bad, folks, because my Sun Mountain Front Nine bag, designed for the Speed Cart, has 14 pockets.
Recently, one cart girl picked up my bag to place it on a riding cart and her eyes got kind of big and she said, Now thats a golf bag. How many pockets are on that one?
Sun Mountain says: The Front Nine golf bag was designed for use on push and pull carts, all pockets and clubs are easily accessible while the bag is on the cart.
The Front Nine has 14 pockets, including velour-lined cell phone, sunglass and valuables pockets, new and old ball pockets and a cooler pocket. The antique nickel fixtures on the top and bottom of the bag help secure the bag to your cart.
Other features on the new bag include a nine-inch graphite friendly top, tube construction for greater durability, insulated cooler pocket and antique nickel strap guides on top and bottom to help secure the bag to the cart. The Front Nine is available in both men's and women's models for a suggested retail price of $150.
"In the past, golfers had to either choose a carry bag or a cart bag," explained Sun Mountain Golf Bag Division President, Ed Kowachek, "with the development of the Front Nine we are introducing a new category of golf bags -- bags designed specifically for the needs of the golfer who uses a push or pull cart."
The men's Front Nine is available in six color combinations: mallard/black, goldenrod/black/granite, black/indigo, black, navy, and red/black. The ladies' model is available in: black/leopard, mallard/khaki, navy/steel, and khaki/navy. Both bags are topped off with a matching rainhood, umbrella holder and tube construction.
For more than 20 years, Sun Mountain has been designing and manufacturing functional, high-quality, lightweight golf bags for the serious golfer. Sun Mountain is responsible for many industry firsts, including being the first to use backpacking technology to produce a lightweight nylon golf bag and being the first to develop a stand bag with integral legs.
