Resorts and country clubs with golf courses share a challenge: storing their accumulation of large, valuable golf bags in an organized, efficient manner that’s easy for members to access and maintains an appropriate level of security. StoreMoreStore has met this challenge numerous times with its array of storage solutions for golf bag storage ideas. From simple racks to high-density sliding shelving, we have a product to match your clubhouse and budget.
A major consideration when designing a club storage area is environmental management. Extremes of temperature and humidity will damage golf clubs, so your storage area must be climate-controlled. High heat will weaken the glue that binds club grips and club heads to the shaft, while cold will cause steel club shafts to contract and become brittle. High humidity, if sustained over long periods, will cause clubs to rust. All these undesirable outcomes are avoided by maintaining moderate temperature and humidity levels in your clubhouse storage area.
Golf Bag Storage Ideas
With the preliminaries out of the way, here are a few of our best golf bag storage ideas:
Golf bag storage rack systems are easy to install, long-lasting, and available in many different sizes. StoreMoreStore bag racks range in width from four to eight feet and have one or two levels. For example, a small rack holds four bags on one level and weighs 62 pounds, while our largest rack holds 36 bags over two levels and weighs 244 pounds.
All racks have a steel construction that is simple, durable, and requires no maintenance. Many racks feature adjustable shelves, PVC bag separators, and a variety of powder-coat finish colors. All racks hold bags upright for ease of access and provide excellent air circulation to prevent buildups of moisture and mold.
Our most advanced bag storage system is high-density sliding shelving. These shelves slide on tracks from side to side, allowing easy access to all shelves while keeping the total storage footprint compact. Your storage capacity is effectively doubled compared to traditional shelving because no fixed aisles take up space. Another advantage is that you travel less distance to pick up the bags, meaning members can get out to the course more quickly.
Mobile golf bag shelves have two tiers to make the most of your vertical space and come in widths from eight to 24 feet. As an example of the incredible space efficiency of these designs, the 12-foot model with three rows of shelves holds up to 42 bags.
An all-wood golf club storage cabinet offers classic looks, ample space, and excellent security. Wood lockers are visually appealing, as golf bags are concealed behind handsome wooden doors, giving your storage area a clean, uniform appearance. Optional base and crown moldings are available to refine the look of the lockers further.
Another advantage to wood lockers is that members can store additional items beyond bags, like golf shoes or clothes. Because the lockers are dedicated to individual members and have key locks, they are among the most secure options for club storage.
Metal golf bag lockers offer high durability and security. They feature one fixed and two adjustable shelves for storage of golf accessories, and ventilated doors prevent moisture and mold accumulation. The locker is made of cold-rolled 14-gauge sheet steel for a lifetime of use.
Country clubs and resorts work hard to create a visually appealing setting with a cohesive look and branding. So it bears mentioning that there are several style considerations when selecting a golf bag room storage system. Do you want the bags to be visible or covered up? A rack system leaves the bags out in the open, which is ideal for air circulation but may not be your desired look. Alternatively, sliding shelving minimizes the space required for bag storage and has a modern appearance.
Meanwhile, wood lockers provide a classic aesthetic. Should your storage solution match the colors of your branding? Racks are available in many different colors. Careful consideration of how you want the storage area to look will help you select the ideal storage method for your club.
Is the bag storage area going to be accessed by members directly, or will it be managed by staff? If your golf bag storage is self-service, you’ll need to put thought into security systems to prevent the loss and theft of expensive and portable equipment.
You can place the storage area behind keypad access, use a video monitoring system, or locate the storage area in part of the clubhouse that can only be accessed by members. Golf bag storage cabinets or lockers are generally the most secure storage option, as members can place a lock on their individual locker.
