    Let's review what we see here...
    • This is the best look yet at how a set of clubs fit in this vehicle.
    • A carry bag fits but doesn't appear to be able to tuck the bottom diameter of the bag fully into the pockets behind the wheel wells.
      • Putting the club heads into the pocket instead of the base of the bag might be an option, but the bag would be sitting somewhat upside down.
      • Still concerned about fitting a cart bag.
    • Woods need to be pulled from the bag.
      • Not perfect but acceptable.
      • Does this guy really play 3 fairway woods? Those headcovers look too big for any to be a hybrid.
      • Ogio head covers?
    • Even the smallest push cart doesn't look like it's going to be along for the ride.
    • Better than trying to use a 718 Cayman to go to the golf course!

    Totally different vehicle, but for reference I can fit a set of clubs across the back of the trunk in my BMW F30 335i... Plus a Clickgear pushcart (not the smallest on the market), and a half-sized milk crate (holding my car care supplies).

    For the Supra I just want to be able to take it to play golf. I’ll sacrifice the push cart, and I wouldn’t use a milk crate in a hatchback anyway.

    so as expected ya gotta take your drivers out...there is a lot less useable room than an 86 even without the backseats folded down.

    Having owned Corvettes and Vipers I can say, there is zero practicality lol

    Not a win if you're trying to take a Cayman to the golf course. You'd have to put the clubs in the passenger seat!.

    The same goes with the Supra. On the 718, you'll have to take them out as well but worked on the 987/981

    I reckon you can fit golf bags in similarly to those Cayman pics in the Supra. Might have to take the drivers out and may depend on front seat positioning, but I think after seeing the size of the boot it might be possible. Definitely could fit a set in the centre where the little dip is between the seats though.

    There is a ton of cargo storage in the last few generations of Corvette --- enough to comfortably fit 2 golf bags.

    That doesn’t work in the current generation Cayman. However, as discussed in this very thread, you can fit a set of clubs in the Supra’s hatch.

    Did you not see the pics that I've attached? That hourglass shape of the Supra trunk opening would take some finessing. What a horrible design.

    You can have the aluminum bar removed, which is not a structural piece, & it would give you a little more flexability. That's the first thing I'm doing, than the tint on the rear hatch, so stuff doesn't cook back there.

    That bar is 100% structural.

    Golf is boring as hell.

    Put a helmet in and go to the race circuit ;)
