Cart Bag vs. Carry Bag
Another consideration to make is whether or not you will be pushing around a cart bag or a carry bag. The cart bag typically requires longer straps and a slightly more durable push cart. The carry bag is lightweight, and it can fit on almost any push cart.
With a carry bag, we recommend getting a more streamlined and lightweight push cart, it’s just easier to deal with, and you won’t need anything more.
Accessories and Features
Golf push carts have lots of different accessory options to choose from. We liked the ability to add an umbrella on those days when the sun is incredibly strong. However, these are not necessarily included with the price of the push cart.
Look for options like ClicGear when you like accessories, as this brand makes it easy to attach any accessory that you may like. Keep in mind that you will want to always ensure you have shade, water, and some seed/sand to replace divots while you are on the course.
The best push carts on the market come in various price ranges. Some will find that the $200 price range is a great spot to get a quality push cart that will last without spending an abundance of money. Some of the higher quality options are close to $400, and they may have quite a few more accessories and options.
Electric Push Cart vs. Manual
The electric push cart makes walking the golf course considerably easier. If you often play hilly courses, the cart can kind of do its own thing as you use a remote control or a speed selector on the front panel. Electric push carts sometimes have wide wheels for deluxe performance.
The manual carts are foldable, and they are much more affordable. Personally, I like the manual push carts for easy storage, one less battery or electronic device to take care of, and if you get a great 3 wheel golf push cart, it’s not much work at all to get it around the golf course.
