Golf Cart Rain Covers
| Golf cart rain covers provide protection to your clubs and help keep your game going - even when a person shouldn't be outside golfing.
One of these covers sure would have been handy today. Living in Georgia, we've had a drought for the last several years, and we hardly knew what a rainy day looked like.
I know where my sunscreen is, where my golf sunglasses and hat are, but I don't know where to find my golf cart umbrella and I certainly never thought about buying a golf cart rain cover...until today.
It was a golf tournament for Young Life that, unless lightening struck, would carry on rain or shine, and rain it did.
A golf bag rain cover is an inexpensive way of keeping your golf cart bags and clubs dry.
There are several styles available depending on what kind of golf cart you are using.
There are golf rain covers for these styles:
1. Electric golf cart
2. Golf Push Cart
3. Golf Bag Rain Covers
Features to look for are:
1. Easy to put on and take off
2. Easy access to clubs, balls, and tees

Golf Bag Umbrella
Please don't laugh when I tell you my favorite golf bag rain cover is this simple bubble umbrella.
For some reason, when I use it the other guys think it's wimpy and actually make fun of me. But I like it because it's easy to carry with me for those sudden downpours and it provides quick and easy access to my bag and clubs. There's no searching for the opening and then opening and closing zippers all the time.
It doesn't matter what bag you have this golf bubble umbrella fits into any bag. Of all the golf bag rain covers, find out why this is my favorite.
Here are the reasons why I use this umbrella to protect my clubs.
1. Easy to Carry
I can keep this in my bag and carry it with me all the time. In the summer, it's not unusual to have a sudden downpour develop late in the afternoon, just when I want to hit a couple of balls.
With this small, lightweight umbrella I am always prepared. It can be kept in the umbrella compartment of your golf bag so it doesn't take up any club space.
2. Easy to Use
Simply open up the umbrella and put the umbrella pole in with the golf clubs. It opens in seconds. There is no fiddling around trying to get a golf bag rain cover to fit over the bag and clubs. No zipping and unzipping every time you get a club out or put it away.
The DrizzleStik has different locking sections so that there are three different lengths to the shaft. This telescoping action makes it easy to adjust the height. It also has a hinge that allows you to bend it out of the way to grab a club.
3. Easy to Get to the Clubs
There are no zippers or openings to open and close. It's easy to see and access just the right club.
4. Can be used with any Golf Bag
It doesn't matter what make or type of golf bag you have, the golf bag umbrellas will keep your clubs protected.
For less than $20 the Drizzle Stick is well worth the money.
