MISSOULA, MT – Sun Mountain’s best-selling C-130 golf cart bag is available in a stand bag version, too. An abundance of pocket space and continually evolving golfer-friendly features have kept C-130 in the top spot for 10+ years. But, what about the golfer who wants that awesome cart bag and prefers a stand bag for the practice range? Enter the C-130S golf stand bag offering nine pockets plus cart-friendly features like a leg-lock system, quick-release carry strap, cart strap tunnel, and a cart-friendly bottom. C-130S offers a 15-way top including a putter well, in five colors with a retail price of $289.99. For the retailer nearest you, call 800-227-9224 or visit

C-130S stand bag offers a 9” diameter, 15-way top with individual club-dividers. These full-length dividers prevent clubs from getting twisted together in the bottom of the bag and difficult to pull out. The nine pockets on C-130S are forward-facing and accessible when the bag is on a cart. The pockets include a ventilated cooler pocket, multiple accessory pockets and two velour-lined valuables pockets, one sized for a range finder. Cart-friendly features include the cart strap pass-through that threads the cart strap through a tunnel behind the bag’s pockets allowing full pocket access when the bag is on a cart, a leg-lock system to keep the legs tight to the bag when it’s on the cart, a cart-friendly bottom that fits nicely in riding cart bag wells, and a quick release shoulder-strap.

Additional C-130 models in the 2024 collection include the standard C-130 with a 14-way top and the C-130 5-Way offering a five-way divided top.
