Ten rounds with Caddy Daddy Ranger

ADVERTISEMENT

A quick nine after work. Taking the kids for a few holes on a Sunday afternoon. A bucket of balls on the range as a decompression treatment for life’s hassles.

All are great ideas, keep our interest and skills fresh and don’t require a full complement of clubs. Enter the Caddy Daddy Ranger.
Here in Florida everyone knows that golf, especially golf in the summer, is only played from a cart and that’s true except when teeing it up for an early morning nine holes at a local walking-only course. The Ranger is perfect.

It’s also become a habit of mine, for a break away from sitting in front of a computer keyboard, to slip out and hit a bucket of balls. Again the Ranger is perfect. Traveling to visit family, none of who are golf-addicted, the Ranger was ideal taking up little room but always available.

At three pounds the Ranger is light and adding a driver, 5-iron, 8-iron, putter, two wedges six Pro V1s, half a dozen tees and a towel it tops out to just over nine pounds so it’s easy to carry and comfortable on the shoulder. By way of contrast my regular bag (a standup-carry model) similarly equipped but with 14 clubs is almost exactly double in weight.

The 5-inch diameter Ranger has rigid sides, three pockets, padded strap and even a towel ring. The zippered padded top is attached and protects the clubs if you’re caught in the rain or when checking it at the airport. What more could you ask for? The price is $49.99 at CaddyDaddyGolf.comand they offered free shipping plus a one-year warranty.

Negatives: Nothing major, though when picking the Ranger up to put on your shoulder the padded top often gets in the way of gripping the handle or the strap plus the strap’s shoulder cushion has no way to fix it in place so it requires a little adjustment each time.

Recommendation: If you want a well-designed and constructed Sunday bag that will hold up to half your usual complement of sticks the Caddy Daddy Ranger is a great choice.
