Greenside Golf The Money Bag Review
Greenside Golf’s motto is “By Golfers for Golfers.” For Bill Brannigan and his son-in-law Bobby O’Byrne, who purchased the company in early 2022, it’s simply a reflection of their love for golf. Brannigan and O’Byrne, who moved to Kentucky from Ireland 15 years ago, are typical avid golfers, who just decided to get into the golf business.
“He outdrives me most of the time, but I still score better – and I keep the pencil,” he said with a laugh. To that end, among their products (which also includes a push cart) is “The Money Bag,” a value-priced stand bag that Brannigan said “exemplifies what we are trying to do.”
In short, the claim is that this bag is money well-spent. For $189.99 suggested retail, a golfer can get most of, if not all, the features found in the best golf stand bags.

The pockets include two lined valuables pouches, which give you some nice options for your cell phone, keys, wallet and anything else you want to protect. The cooler pocket is located on the front of the bag in the bottom and it has a drainage hole, so yes, you could put ice in there.
You could also use one of those valuables pouches for a rangefinder or GPS device, but because there are zippers, it isn’t easy to access quickly if you’re walking. It’s a minor inconvenience to be sure, considering the price, but a magnetic pocket would be a useful feature.
More importantly, The Money Bag worked well in every application. As a carry bag, I found it to be as comfortable as most bags on the market, with a strap system that’s fairly easy to adjust and fit well. The legs spring out nicely when the bag is set on the ground. It’s also just 4 1/2…
