Put your fishing poles in your golf bag so you don't have to carry them. It's easy to pull bag around on bag cart.
I use a smaller travel sized golf bag for my fishing equipment. It already had the dividers for holding golf clubs so my poles fit right in. I don't even have to remove the reels. All of the pockets hold other fishing "stuff." I also have a small rolling shopping cart (bought at the flea market) that holds the golf bag, small ice chest, folding chair and anything else I might need. Even though I am older now I still love fishing. This way I can enjoy myself without asking others to do it for me. As I bank fish this works out pretty well. Now I wish I could figure out how to get up and down those steep banks, until then I stay to flatter areas.
Use an old golf bag as a tote to help lug your garden tools out to your garden.
That is a great idea. You can also put a trash bag inside the bag and put leaves and debris in it as well!
Have you ever carried a full golf bag around? They are not light; it'd be much simpler to just carry the hoe and such. And they have dividers to separate the clubs, leaving no room for a trash bag filled with debris. It would be easier and lighter to carry debris in a trash bag, basket, or wheel barrow.
Get dowels from the home store. Roll up large items like tablecloths or wrapping paper. The bag is a great upright holder.
Use as a planter outside.
Use in a family or sports room to hold pool cues, putters for practice, dried or silk floral display.
Use at entry to hold umbrellas and canes.
Golf Bag As A Tool Caddy
DH took an old golf bag and made a place for his pool sticks. The plastic tubes for the golf clubs will keep the pool sticks in an upright position and keep them from bumping into each other. This turned out to be a really good thing because I have heard racks for those things are very pricey.
