Serious golfers may want to consider a golf trunk organizer for keeping all golfing equipment accessible, protected, and ready for use. Choosing the best golf trunk organizer starts with determining how much space you have in your trunk for an organizer, as well as determining your storage needs for your golf equipment. Take a quick inventory of the golfing equipment you will store in this unit, and take measurements of your car's trunk to ensure you buy the correct size. Consider the cost of each organizer, and keep in mind that durability and portability are important factors for any decent organizer.
Easy access is a major component of a good golf trunk organizer. Make sure the organizer you are considering has separate compartments for golf shoes and clothing; shoes can get dirty during a golf match, and putting the shoes back in the golf trunk organizer can lead to dirt and grass buildup. Make sure the shoes go in a separate compartment from other golf items that you do not want to get dirty, such as clothing, scorecards, or other equipment. Many organizers feature a bottom compartment that will fit one or two pairs of golf shoes; this compartment is often accessed by unzipping a pocket or even unlatching a drawer.
The lid of the golf trunk organizer should feature small pockets, mesh or otherwise, in which you can store smaller items such as golf gloves, ball markers, pencils and scorecards, and even sunglasses. These small compartments will allow you to access smaller items quickly and easily before or after your match. Some organizers feature a golf ball sleeve holder so you can always have quick access to fresh golf balls. Others may even feature compartments specifically designed for toiletry items, such as deodorant or a razor and shaving cream. Determine what your needs are in order to choose the best organizer compartments.
Size and durability are important considerations as well. Most golfers do not want the organizer to take up all of the trunk space so room is left over for a golf bag and other items. Choose an organizer that will fit all your golf accessories without taking over the entire trunk, and be sure to consider both the size of the organizer when it is closed and the size when it is open. Choose an organizer made from durable materials; many are made from nylon or polyester, while others feature a hard shell case for durability. Hard cases will be more expensive, but they will also last much longer.
