Can you recommend an estate car with room for two sets of golf clubs?

Can you suggest an estate car that would accommodate two sets of golf clubs and trolleys? We are looking to spend no more than £20,000 plus whatever we can get for our current 2001 Focus estate. Our mileage is 12,000 per year but does include fairly frequent short trips. Does this suggest petrol rather than diesel? Would you recommend the new Focus estate?

Though the new Focus estate offers an excellent combination of ride comfort, handling and economy, a brilliant solution would be a Honda Civic 1.8i. This video shows you why:

I got 45mpg so a diesel does not have a very significant fuel economy advantage. Not having tested this car since 2006 I had forgotten about it, which was a mistake. No other hatchback offers such a commodious low, flat-floored loadspace.

Punchy and efficient diesel engines, class-leading practicality, excellent reliability record.
As good as the hatchback. Great to drive and very refined. Upmarket and comfortable interior. Usefully large boot. The best looking estate this size.
