    Transporting golf clubs

    Apologies if this has been covered before- the search function is erroring out on me, so I figured I'd ask.

    Has anyone come up with a way to transport golf clubs, or at least a sunday bag (like 6 clubs) on their bike? I'm really enjoying bike commuting in the winter, but in the summer I play a lot of golf, so I end up driving my entire car around just to carry my stupid golf bag.

    Have any of you seen a bike transportable solution?

    Thanks!

    A Burly trailer is the best way to haul them.

    I've got a course a mile from my house that I've biked to before. I just slung the clubs up on my shoulder and biked there and back. It was fun--but I only did it once. Too big a hill to climb on the way back--it was tough climbing!

    When I used to live in Annapolis I would see a guy crossing the Naval Academy bridge on a bike with his clubs once in awhile... he just wore the bag on his back. His bag had backpack style dual straps, so it's probably more stable that way. Honestly if it weren't very far I'd consider doing that.

    You could get a trailer, probably could make them fit in one like: http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...1_10000_201527
    Then you could use it for hauling other junk. How much do the clubs weigh?

    Yeah, this is probably better option

    Succumb to the n+1 theory of bike ownership and get a Big Dummy (or Ute, Xtracycle, or Rans Hammertruck...).

    A guy at my old club used to carry clubs on his motorcycle. He would strap them on tight with a backpack style harness and go. Of course, he didn't have to pedal, but it looked like it would work on a bicycle. It really helps if you have the rain cover snapped on though.

    When I was in high school (not old enough to drive) I used to carry my clubs on my shoulder all the time without any trouble. Admittedly, that was 25 years ago, so my memory may be off.

    One thing about your post is unclear. Do you want your clubs with you at all times (in case a sudden opportunity to play golf arises), or will you only be carrying your clubs when you have specific plans to play golf? If the former, maybe you should consider a locker at your club (if available) and just leave your clubs there all the time.

    If you just need a couple of clubs ad not the whole bag, you could use my childhood "quiver" method. I used a 4" thin-walled PVC pipe, capped on one end. The capped end was down by the rear axle, bolted on to the axle using a PVC hanger hoop (I'm sure there is a more technical term). The top was bolted to the rack in a similar way.

    When I was a kid I carried them on my back. Now I'm an old fart so I push a three wheeled cart. I attach it to my rack and pull it like a trailer.
