Where Do You Put Your Towel?


where to put golf towel on your bag and bad places to put your golf towel

You should be able to clip your golf towel, using a carabiner or other hook, to a towel ring on a golf bag. These hooks or loops are normally on the right side of the bag, as this is the part of the golf bag that is facing outwards when you carry your bag.

This prevents the towel from getting stuck in the retractable legs.

If you’re loading your golf bag onto a pushcart or onto a golf cart, you might need to lift the towel up and slide the strap underneath the towel for easier access during the round.

Caddy towels have a hole in the middle of the towel so that you can drape them over the clubs in your golf bag.

There are a couple of bad places to put your golf towel on your golf bag:

If you hang the golf towel on the left side of the golf bag, it may get caught up in the retractable legs if you carry a stand bag.

It’s not a great idea to hang your golf club off of the clubs that you carry in your golf bag.

Even if you don’t hit that club during the round, the hanging towel can get caught on other clubs, making it more difficult to get them in and out of your golf bag.

Some golfers hang their golf towels on alignment sticks that they carry with them in the golf bag. The towel can get wrapped around the golf clubs in the bag and make it harder to access the clubs you want easily.

It’s a bad idea to store a wet golf towel inside any of the accessory pockets on a golf bag. The towel can grow mold and mildew when it doesn’t get enough air to dry out properly.

How To Attach a Towel To a Golf Bag


where to put golf towel on your bag and bad places to put your golf towel

Where and how you attach a golf towel to a golf bag depends on the type of towel and how large it is. The best golf towels from manufacturers like Titleist and Callaway have grommets you can loop a carabiner through, allowing you to clip it on easily to the golf towel ring on the right of the golf bag.

Golf towels that do not have a grommet will often have a cloth loop on one corner of the towel that you can clip a carabiner to and then attach it to the towel ring on the golf bag.

For towels that do not have a grommet or a cloth loop, you can cut a small hole into one corner of the towel to run the carabiner through.

You can also use clips that can latch onto the towel and then secure that to the towel ring on a golf bag, or directly to the bag itself.

Caddy towels have a hole in the middle of the towel so that you can put them over the clubs in your golf bag.
