Push Cart or Lighter Carry Bag

Hello, Everyone -

New here and love all the helpful posts I've read so far. Now that I am 40 yrs old and want more exercise, one of my 2019 season goals is to walk the course a lot more. I think this will be a good thing. However, I am a little concerned about the bag on my back for hours - so have been considering buying a nice push/pull cart. Although, I do have a little bit of trepidation and may end up just buying a lighter more comfortable carry bag.



Anyone out there have any suggestions on either side of this fence - if so what brand/model?

    Get the push cart, whether you could still physically carry the golf bag or not.

    You will enjoy the game much more and probably could score better.



    Get the best push cart you could afford for it'll serve you for many years down the road.

    I use to do the push cart but it was actually exerting fatigue on the game especially when it was soggy.



    I prefer a light bag and really good shoes.

    Push cart for me when I walk....have a Caddytek easier on my back than carrying, and the bag dosen't get blown over in windy conditions... Sometimes I'll carry if only playing a few holes after work, but I'll strip the bag down and only carry 8-10 clubs and a sleeve of balls.....

    I carried a light bag and found it was exhausting, but then I'm almost 30 years your senior. Have been using a push cart and enjoy not having to strip down the bag while still being able to walk. If you get a cart get a good quality one, avoid tube tires and get a push cart not a pull one.

    37 y/o in Houston. I use a pushcart (Clicgear 3.5 cart and Sun Mountain XCR bag) with an umbrella for the 9 oppressive months of summer here and gleefully carry (OGIO Wisp or Callaway Hyperlite 1) for the 3 months of fall/spring, skipping most of way. I often get invited to play with groups that do not walk or at courses that are not walkable. Those times are always fun and usually drunk, but I don’t consider it golf. Good on you for making this change.

    I’m a walker and prefer a carry bag. For me the push cart can get a little cumbersome pushing up hills and around greens. I don’t really find it much easier.

    made the switch to a push cart many years ago.

    love the convenience and able to walk eighteen with snack and thermos.

    once you have your main bag set up and the right cart, you'll wonder what made you hesitate.



    now and then a light bag for a fast nine or practice session will come in handy.

    keep one around.

    You cite "the course", are you a member at a private club & is the course walker friendly?



    If so, check out the posts on minimalist golf - to ease into this, try walking with your current bag and a 7-10 club setup, handful of tees, and just enough balls to cover 9 holes. Stop at the turn and reload if necessary. May not seem like much, but carrying all the extra **** we usually do adds up over the course of 4+ hours.



    If you can't get your head around that, no worries, try a pushcart & see if that works for you.



    PS: If you are looking for a lightweight bag to carry, Jones may be still running their Black Friday promotion. Pretty big discounts.

    Both. There's a time and place for each. When the turf is firm I like to push. If it's soft and the pace is quick I carry. Sometimes with just 7 or 8 clubs if I'm tired.

    ... I will always remember what the Orthopedic surgeon that performed the 2 operations on my back told me when I asked what he thought of carrying a bag with 2 shoulder straps "I love golfers carrying their bags. It will put my 3 kids through college". He said it is a terrible idea to carry, as it is impossible to keep your spine in proper alignment. He told me some will carry their whole lives and never have an obvious problem, but they are the exceptions. Personally I have used a motorized remote cart since the 90's and it is a little like having a silent caddy.

    Same here. I have several carts but I prefer to carry my bag. I have a Sun Mountain four5 and find it very easy on the shoulders and back. I like the fact I can take a direct line to my ball most of the time when with a cart alot of times I have to take a longer walk around things with the cart. My favorite course has alot of small creeks and ditches that I can jump over carrying my bag. I wouldn't be dragging a cart through that kind of stuff and would have to walk around it.

    Clicgear has been our go to. I'll carry a light bag sometimes and enjoy that, but getting them off the back is more important, IMO.



    Not sure how there would be "trepidation" over a push cart. Ours are quite friendly.
  • grochol17grochol17 Advanced Members Posts: 1,283 ✭✭
    Most of the weight of your bag is not from the bag itself, it is from everything in the bag... so if you want a lighter bag to make carrying easier on yourself, you should take out as much stuff as possible, especially golf balls. But, ultimately, I'd say go for the push cart if you want to get exercise, but save wear and tear on your body.

    Push cart. All day.



    Many folks like the nostalgia of carrying, but it's just not worth the extra wear and tear on the back and body. My home course has a ton of elevation change and pushing can be a chore at times, but it's really no worse than carrying for the most part. The lack of wear and tear and being able to take more gear when necessary are positives that far outweigh any negatives for me.

    Yup, both. Just make sure your light weight bag has the support and rigidity to be used on a push cart. A light bag is nice for every application. From the garage to the car. From the car to the range. Just pushing a lighter cart makes a difference. And if you want to carry for a quick 9 holes, no changing bags...

    At 45, I gave in and bought a caddytek from Costco. Best decision I ever made. Just wish I would have made the decision to push earlier.

    I have both. Haven’t used the push cart for a couple of years (admittedly I ride most rounds so not having used it for a couple years isn’t as big a deal as it sounds). But I still prefer to carry when I walk. I find it easier to be able to just go where I want with the bag.



    I will say though if it’s hot out and I would need to carry extra water I would go pushcart. Pushcart also with the very real advantage of not having to dump all the extra stuff out of the bag.

    Lots of great ideas. Thank you! Think I'll stay with the bag I have now (Titleist Players 5 - 2017). I live in the Bay Area of CA so most of the courses are walkable year round, with the exception of a couple and those I'll ride. I'm sure there will be some fatigue to deal with either way (carry or push) if you aren't used to walking more than a couple rounds a year anyhow. What I am looking for is a cart that is easy setup/takedown and an iPhone holder would be great since I use U-Swing app for GPS - and of course the drink holder.

    Kind of an oxymoron advice?



    Golf isn’t good for a bad back period, or any other sport.

    the golf swing kind of already jacks up your back, so why put it through even extra stress by carrying? i walk 95% of my rounds and i used to exclusively carry, but since i switched to the push cart a few years ago, i wish i went to it earlier. easier on my back for sure and i feel more energized at the end of round, enabling me to finish off rounds better.

    Carry unless the heat index is moving to 90°+, then push. Keeps me ready for high school hoops officiating. Which is all summer, fall, season, then spring AAU.

  • playaplaya Advanced Members Posts: 8,689 ✭✭
    Up until the age of about 45 I would carry, but as I got older I found it a bit tiring and went to a pull cart. I find modern pull carts easy on the body and energy levels.

    Do both and make a decision.



    I used to carry and when I switched to a push cart I knew immediately it was the best golf related purchase I've ever made. It's so much easier to push than carry....its not even close. That may not equate to more enjoyment of the game for some, but it does for me. Ability to play more than 18 holes, fresher after the round, etc.
  • spartanglfrspartanglfr Advanced Members Posts: 366 ✭✭
    I like to play a full set of clubs whether I walk or ride, have 6 balls with me, a YETI full of cold water when it's hot. My Clicgear handles my bag and water bottle with no problem. Clicgear has been a great purchase--one of my best golf purchases. I couldn't carry a full bag for 18 or even 9 in hot weather. A pushcart is so much easier than carrying. Unless you can walk through a tree or through a lake when carrying, pushing a cart doesn't result in a significant increase in walking distance.
  • gjlang76gjlang76 Advanced Members Posts: 212 ✭✭
    I’ve carried since I started the game. Only lightweight bags, however. Bought a clicgear this summer to experience the hype, used it for 2 rounds and promptly sold it. Hated it. I find carrying much easier and less physically demanding, especially if your course is hilly. Carts are cumbersome pushing around greens, wetland areas or shallow/narrow creeks.



    I like it simple. Single strap, no legs and a couple dividers. I’m there to play golf, not camp for a week. I need a glove, balls and a some tees, that’s it. Nice and light.

    42. Push cart all the way for me. Started using my Dad’s old Sun Mountain V1 a few years back and now wouldn’t consider walking around without it. Walking without having to lug that extra weight around is the way to go.

  • WrigglesWriggles Advanced Members Posts: 3,135 ✭✭
    Used a pull cart back in my younger days. 15-20 years ago, decided to play minimalist, 5-7 clubs in a light carry bag. Using the club you just hit to lift the strap eliminates most bending. 3 or 4 balls in the bag pocket and a bag of tees finish the kit.



    Suggested clubs. Driver, 3W, 5, 8, PW and putter. Add another club, if necessary, or adjust.



    Scores are as good or better than the 14 club kit.



    Had 4 trolleys, gave all away to charity.

    This is the correct answer. Push carts are fine on flat courses. They are a pain if you play on a hilly course, I'd much ratch have my clubs on my shoulders.

    i like the extra workout, i get out first and half walk half jog to a 2 hour round. cant do that carrying. i have no problem pushing up big hills too, really enjoy that workout.



    but i do like rocking a sunday bag every couple of weeks, forces me to practice choke down shots, flighted stuff, etc. because of the limited club choices. I cant move as fast, but makes me feel pretty accomplished to be that efficient (limited balls, choices) if i play well

    Push Cart Mafia for life! Seriously, I find push cart way easier on me than carrying. I carried for quite a few years up until almost 30, and it always did a number on my neck and back. I'll agree with others comments that there are times when a push cart may be more work - pushing it uphill, sidehills, etc - but I'd rather have my legs getting a workout and feeling the burn that beating the **** out of my spine.



    I've owned two different CaddyTek push carts (currently have the ONE V4 model) and love them. I push about 95% or my rounds and the others would be a cart, and that's only because it's some sort of scramble or charity event where cart is included and pretty much no one walks.

    I used a push cart for a few years, and if you carry a bunch of stuff in your bag, or have back issues, they do offer some advantages over carrying.



    That being said, I find that I much prefer to carry. I have a mid-weight stand bag that I load as lightly as I can, without leaving behind any necessities (beer).



    I hate having to push that dumb cart everywhere - especially uphill. So much easier and more expedient to simply sling the bag on my back and walk where I need to go.



    I do think stand bags are worthwhile, just so you don't have to bend over all the time.

    Can of corn. Would you rather, carry a small two year old for 3 hours or push a tri-wheeled stroller?
