I moved most of our books, records and small furnishings from one house to
another  in
about 5 trips using the Prius (50 miles a trip= one gallon). I was AMAZED at how
much it
would carry if you really packed it correctly.

Must be a large set of golf bag/clubs.

I was challenged at work to see how many bags of golf clubs could fit
into my 2001 Prius.  I don't golf, and I could only find 3 golfers that
had their gear with them that day, so I easily got 3 sets of golf
bags/clubs (well, the owners loaded them in) into the trunk of my 2001.
 The guys at work were most impressed.

Now, the 2004-current Prius is larger (a midsize, not a compact like my
2001), and is a hatchback (not a sedan like my 2001), so I would expect
that you could fit even more in there...

Perhaps he doesn't trust the tonneau cover (the window shade thingy, for
the non-cognoscenti) and wants to put them in the hard-lidded storage
area.  They'll never fit there.

I fit a wrapped up Christmas tree in mine, with only one seat down, so I
know clubs should be a lay up.

 I, like your father, discovered that the Prius would not hold a golf
bag crosswise!   Coincidentally, I found that I play much better if I
leave my longer clubs at home! (I'm 67, and a driver is no longer in my
bag, unless I get an infrequent jolt of testosterone).  Next to go is
the 3 wood, and voila, the golf bag fits just fine.
Kudo's to your father if he is still able to play with the longer clubs
at 89.  It gives me a reason to hope.
ps: the obvious solution for the younger/better golfers is to fold down
the rear seatbacks....duh?
