I am trying to find a method to get my 3 loved golf clubs -- putter, wedge 56 and iron 6 -- with me during traveling without needing to take the whole bag. I am sailing, flying, trekking -- so carrying a real golf bag is not an option. I like to use them for all kind of fun during casual travelling. I currently use 100liters' Duffel bag by Hagor but it is not long enough to get wedge/iron6 inside. The Hagor bag is an excellent durable bag but just short enough not to store the 3 golf clubs. I am not getting my 3 golf clubs with me if I need to pay repetitively the golf bag fee. According to the length guidelines such as Norwegian, it is technically possible to have a bit longer luggage. I was considering an option of adding extra pouches to Hagor and have the clubs along the back i.e. use them as support to the back but I don't want to make holes to the waterproof canvas so some special gluing would be needed. So

How are you transporting the minimum number of golf clubs while travelling?

Btw. I once bought a tester club where it had the removable club face -- it may be the solution. Get 3 tester clubs to the bag with the opener so they may make into the current duffel bag. –  hhh Jul 3 at 23:50

Downvoter, it would be a good idea to comment as to why you think this post is not up to the mark. IMHO this is a completely legitimate post. –  Aditya Somani Jul 4 at 2:35
    
Maybe this is a daft question, but wouldn't it be easier to rent golf clubs? Or is that not a thing? –  Burhan Khalid Nov 18 at 6:17
    
@BurhanKhalid a lot of people really get used to their clubs, and don't want to rent a set. –  Mark Mayo Nov 18 at 11:36

There are several travel golf bags that will protect your clubs in the hold, as bags can get thrown around quite a bit. For example, Bagboy has two hard-cases. Hard cases are recommended over soft as some airlines won't pay for damage caused to clubs in soft cases.

If you want a cheap option, some pvc piping to protect the clubs, wrapped inside a soft bag may be the budget and lighter way to carry them.

A final alternative is the international golf club shipping company ShipSticks. There's a review by Forbes on the company if you'd consider that.
