Some of you may recall that I have tested and reviewed products from Sunday Golf before in the past. The last time around I tested their Loma Sunday Bag and a multitude of accessories such as their towels, golf valuables pouch, and more. It was during that time that Sunday Golf really put themselves on the map as they provided fun, high-quality products with a very fair price point.
So, when I received the opportunity to test a new golf bag from the San Diego, California-based golf company there was no way that I could let the opportunity slide by. Sunday Golf is all about that care-free California “chill” vibe where it’s about the small things. Getting a group together to play a round of golf on the weekend, enjoying the beverages on a sun-drenched patio heck, even patios in the rain are fun too. Sunday Golf is “fore the weekend” but not necessarily the weekend only. If you want to have a laid back style and carry a few clubs less, then Sunday Golf is for you.
If I were to sum up the brand as a whole, I think that it’s safe to say that Sunday Golf is a brand for those golfers that love to be free, minimalist, and may shoot 100+ more often than they don’t. But, there is no discrimination here because the savvy, more accomplished golfer can enjoy the walk or ride with Sunday Golf as well.
The last time around, as mentioned” I tested the Loma bag. With the Loma you had a small “Sunday Bag” with all of the necessary accouterments like a cooler pocket, double strap, a valuables pocket, and enough storage to handle the essentials. Rain gear, golf balls, gloves, etc. All of this with a stand. From a golf club perspective the Loma bag housed 5-7 golf clubs comfortably, but I could fit 10. That many clubs certainly was not an optimal loadout for that bag. Queue the “El Camino.” golf bag.
Firstly, I just wanted to say that the “El Camino” translated to English from Spanish means “the way”. Of course, there was also the vintage vehicle that wasn’t a car nor a full-blown pick-up truck. But it can also be used for other things like a road or path. A journey if you will, which is what golf truly is.
The El Camino is available in plenty of colorways like Matte Black, Heather Grey, Ron Burgundy, and Seafoam just to name a few. For testing purposes I opted for the Seafoam which is a nice pastel green with black accents. The El Camino is light as it weighs in at a feathery 3.9 lbs. Impressive, considering it has the built-in stand.
Other features of this fine golf bag from Sunday Golf include a 4-way top divider that holds ten clubs with room to spare (I carried 12 mostly) much to the chagrin of my playing partner and I don’t know why it bugged him. Sure, the clubs were snug. The insulated “Frosty Pocket” to keep your beverages chilled, water-resistant zippers and the proverbial “piece de resistance” the flat base. More on that feature shortly.
The self-leveling dual straps are terrific and the padding is more than enough to keep you comfortable as you walk the fairways. Admittedly, it took me some time to get the adjustments just right. In the interest of transparency, I did dump my clubs on a couple of occasions as I walked with my bag. That said, it was me and not the golf bag.But what if you want to strap the El Camino onto a push cart or riding cart? Well, the El Camino handles that demand in a breeze.
