2 Best Golf Valuables Pouches in 2023
Nowadays, we carry all sorts of items, whether a phone, wallet, watch, jewelry, keys, or sunglasses. But when you're out on the course, you want your pockets to be as light and empty as possible.
Golf valuable pouches come in all shapes and sizes, but they all do the same thing: keep your valuables in a convenient place. The right one will secure your belongings and attach easily to your golf bag or fit inside it.
You've come to the right place if you don't have a valuables pouch or are looking to upgrade. Read on to discover the best golf valuables pouches for 2023 and what you need to know to find the perfect fit.
The STITCH Golf Roadster Leather Valuables Pouch is the perfect quick and easy valuables pouch that won't let you down. It is relatively small at 7" x 7.5", making it ideal for those who carry only a few small items.
This pouch comes with both water and stain resistance. Available in both black and navy, it is 100% leather. It includes a magnetic closure at the top, ensuring your valuables remain secure throughout the entire game.
#2 Limited-Edition Leather Valuables Holder
The Limited Edition Leather Valuables Holder is a notable step up in size and quality. At 10” x 6” x 3.5”, it provides more space than the Roadster and comes in a very different style. With its upscale leather, well-crafted zip, and orange stitching, this is one valuables pouch that certainly looks the part.
What's more, it comes with a signature ingot that you can customize fully. It will undoubtedly help you stand out from the crowd.
How to Choose the Best Golf Valuables Pouch
There are plenty of options for golf valuables pouches, but before you dive straight in and make an impulsive purchase, there are a few factors to consider.
Consider size, features, weight, and materials to see what works best for your budget.
Perhaps the first and most obvious point to consider is just how large you need your valuables pouch to be. The best size will usually depend on how many items you'd like to place inside, but another factor might be how easy it is to carry or place inside your golf bag.
If you only carry a phone, wallet, and a set of keys, you don't need a large valuables pouch, but the more items you come with, the bigger you will need.
It's worth remembering that a pouch isn't a backpack, so smaller, better-quality options are preferable to larger options with lower quality. Pouches are usually carried either in or attached to your golf bag, and if you need to carry or push your bag around the course, you'll almost certainly notice something bulky or awkward.
If you're one of those who tends to have a golf bag that always seems to be spilling out in all directions, you might want to consider organizing your bag to get the most out of it.
Many valuable pouches come with a relatively limited set of features, as it is. After all, you simply need a place to store items while you're out on the course. However, pouches are certainly not just any old bag, and several come with a wide variety of different features.
To begin with, does it have single or multiple compartments to be used for storage? What kind of security features does it have, and does it use a zip, magnetic closure, buttons, or a drawstring to close it?
Other features might include personalization, different attachment methods, water and stain resistance, etc.
Weight might not be a huge issue when the pouch is inside your golf bag, but a clunky pouch is something you will eventually notice.
Weight is often a factor that comes either with certain types of material, such as leather, or the overall size of the pouch. Therefore, if you're looking for something sizeable enough to fit several items, you might have to accept a little extra weight.
Golf Bag and Rounds
The golf bag itself and how many rounds you expect to play are related to the factors mentioned above—size, features, and weight.
If you intend on playing 18 holes and bring your cart bag to the course, you might not need an oversized pouch—you can fit your belongings in the golf bag itself.
However, if you’re playing on a Sunday and only have your Sunday bag, it might not afford enough space to carry your phone, keys, sunglasses, etc. And without a caddy, you won’t have someone to carry all your stuff for you.
Packing light for a Sunday can improve your game, but you still need all those valuables! A pouch can help with that.
High-quality material is probably the best way to ensure that your valuables pouch stands out from others, but this is also where price becomes a real factor.
Today, you can find decent enough pouches made of polyester or cheap plastic for as little as $10. But you also can expect that those cheap items won’t last.
Leather has long been a go-to for high-end valuable pouches, and we must say that it's difficult to look past these in terms of style. However, choosing something made with genuine leather will increase the price.
Another factor to consider with the material is how well it will fare in the rain. Many top-quality pouches come with water and stain resistance, which is worth considering before purchasing.
One often-overlooked factor is the inside of the pouch. We often spend so much time focusing on the exterior, that we forget its purpose is to protect our most valuable items.
Most linings are perfectly acceptable, but the top-quality pouches certainly stand out in this respect. Some might water repel lining and separate compartments for your valuables.
Budget pouches aren't terrible but will most likely come with a relatively cheap lining that will probably split sooner than something more expensive.
Golf valuable pouches can vary wildly in price, and it's possible to pick up something for less than $10 or above $150.
Price is usually quite a fair reflection of all of the features we've mentioned here. Small, lightweight pouches made of high-end leather will cost more than a simple polyester bag. That's not to say that either option is necessarily the right way forward, and it's always worth establishing your budget before purchasing this.
What Should I Keep In My Golf Valuables Pouch?
There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to what to keep in your valuables pouch—though the word ‘valuable’ should at least give you a hint.
Generally, golfers use their valuables pouch for anything that they don't feel comfortable leaving in the locker room, such as phones, wallets, keys, watches, jewelry, etc.
Some golfers might also include a few spare balls and tees, but most golf bags come with separate compartments for these items, so it isn't strictly necessary.
