# Cargo area big/long enough for golf clubs??

I’m sure this is a silly question, but…

Is the cargo area long enough / big enough for 4 sets of golf clubs?

I’m just thinking of a day trip w/ 3 friends, so weight shouldn’t be a problem, but from the diagrams it doesn’t appear you could fit a set of clubs w/o folding down the back seats…

Any ideas?

It depends on the clubs. I’ve found that women’s sets will fit fine diagonally on the floor of the baggage area. Men’s clubs won’t because of the length of the woods. I’ve pulled the woods out of the bag and that allows the bag with irons to fit. You can then set the woods vertically in the baggage area. I’ve only hauled two sets, so can’t confirm that you could fit all four, but I think you could.

You didn’t mention if you were thinking of an SR22 or SR20. If a -20, you might want to do a quick W&B calculation.

Depending on how much you and your three friends weigh, and depending on how far your definition of “day trip” is (i.e. how much fuel you’ll need on board), you might have a weight problem…

The POH is on the CD web site, so you should be able to do a quick W&B calculation to see if you’ll be okay or not. Various people have posted the actual empty weight of their aircraft on this forum before; in my case, my B model SR20 is 2092 lbs. [Haven’t checked the online POH in a while, but the max gross weight will be 3000 lbs soon, even if it still shows 2900 lbs in the POH.]

This may not really help you, but dont forget that the rear seats fold down nicely. I have used this feature to take myself and two people, and three full size bicycles, in my SR20 (where I folded down one seat)

Patrick, Two weeks ago I flew my SR22 from Cleveland to Harbor Springs MI with my wife and two friends for a golfing weekend. My a/c is 2264 pounds, we weighed out at 620 (not everyone is that fortunate), I carried 64 gallons of gas, which left us 132 pounds for cargo . We packed four sets of clubs in the baggage compartment, two lightweight golf bags, golf shoes, and enough clothes for the weekend. The woods needed to be loaded out of the bag, diagonally, but they fit with no problem. Once we got to Harbor Springs we borrowed two additional bags from our hosts. If you don’t have a host, many places will loan or rent you bags, or you can share. I asked everyone to downsize to 8-10 clubs; without surprise, no one’s golf game was affected by not having the full 14! In reality, I told my friends they could bring anything they wanted as long as it totalled 65 pounds or less.

As discussed by the others who responded to you, W&B is the critical issue, especially in an SR20 if you are filling all four seats. In three weeks we’re going to do it again, this time to Hilton Head for a full week. My timeshare has a washing machine and dryer!

Is this really true? Can you really get 3 FULL SIZED BICYCLES in the cargo area of the SR 20 with only one seat down? Do you have to take the hweels off? How do you fgit the bikes through the door?

OK, an old post but a very relevant question for me. Looking to fly from Jeffco in Colorado to Ballyneal golf course in Holyoke (one heck of a great links style course).

Does anyone have pics of this loading scenario? Woods taken out of the four bags to be stood up… irons inside bags laid diagonally. I can visualize it but it seems one or both of the rear passengers might have them coming over their heads.

This might work better if at all with “Sunday” bags… very light collapsible bags that are as small as they come.

I think loading pics for bikes, dogs, golf clubs, baby’s, etc. would be very good to have in COPApedia or similar reference location.
