    It's the water and food that I need to get through 18 that really adds to the weight of the bag.



    And I have a full bag of 14 clubs.



    I started with a stand bag last year for the afternoon 'twilight' 9 holes but found the lack of water an issue. As soon as I started to take a litre of water with me, for the hot humid conditions, I started to notice my should and upper arm go sore from picking up the bag to put it over my shoulder after each shot.



    Santa brought me a push cart, that's light and suits my light stand bag. So I now use that for the 9 holes rounds.



    I much prefer and enjoy using a cart for 18 holes. Never as tired and fatigued and the last few holes I do not seem to fade as much. I enjoy the golf much more that way.




    And if you play in a part of the world where you carry a 5-pound bottle of sand for divots, there’s that added too.

    I play at a course with coolers full of ice water every 2-3 holes. So I don't have to carry water, although I do carry some (on my push cart) on the very hottest days.



    That's the good news. Bad news is we play on Bermuda grass so I have to carry a 5-6 pound bottle of sand. On the rare occasions I play nine holes shouldering my bag, I just skip the sand and become of those Those Guys who don't sand my divots. It's only a handful of times a year and to compensate I try to always fill twice as many as I make on my normal rounds with the trolley.

    how do i walk 18?.............with my legs?


    Yes, surprised that having a caddy carry your bag is not a choice...I realize there are not as many clubs that offer this as when I caddied as a teen, but believe there are still some around.
    Golfing when I can.

    When temps are in the 'feels like' triple digits, it seems downright 'stupid' to walk 18 holes as a recreational golfer! After all, the game is supposed to be fun, but you won't have fun suffering in oppressive heat!.. image/diablo.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':diablo:' /> .

    Unfortunately, I won't have any fun bouncing around in a cart either. When it's too hot to walk (which today is an example) it's too hot for golf.

    In fact, I wouldn't walk 18 holes even if the South Florida courses I play allowed it...(they don't)... image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' />

    I walk from the cart to the ball....I remember when getting a cart was such a luxury, now I look forward to retiring someday and actually having time to be able to walk a round, when I do ill def use a push cart though.

    In the near-decade since this thread started, there has been a big increase in motorized trolleys, and that's what I use at home, in my case a QOD. When I've traveled, most recently to Scotland in June, I hired a non-motorized trolley. It makes no difference to me whether it has two wheels, intended to be pulled, or three wheels and designed to be pushed.

    I tried carrying recently. Even swapped my Ping Pioneer for a Titleist Stadry.



    Mashed my shoulder after just 9 holes so got my push cart out the car for the back nine.



    I've used a buggy last two weeks as my shoulder is still goosed.



    And though I like the Stadry, its not big enough and with my new sticky CP2 grips, its a pain getting clubs out the bag.



    So I'm bidding on tour bags on ebay lol. Back to the push cart / buggy - walking is for younger / fitter peeps than I...

    I went to a pushcart for a couple of years when my lower back was bothering me, but then one of the bearings in the wheels went out.



    Rather than get a replacement, I just started carrying my bag again. I must say that after experiencing both, I genuinely prefer to carry.

    Carrying when I play 9 holes with the wife, but for 18 holes I use my push cart. Now as I lost quite some weight recently I feel fitter and will try to carry more often, except when playing in tournaments.

    I carry, but I think that's a weather dependent option ; in the UK it's almost always OK though.



    If you do carry, don't underestimate the weight of Golf balls in what you carry.

    Walk/carry is my preference for sure. I do ride a fair amount though in the summer when it's crazy hot/humid or when playing housing-development type courses that tended to be routed with really long walks (400-500 yards plus) between many of the holes.

    Turned 40 this past year and have decided to start carrying.... I don't know why but I picked up a Jones Utility for this reason and I have really been enjoying the walks... There are some super hilly courses here in SoCal that I wouldn't attempt to walk, but the ones I play on a regular basis are pretty flat and walkable. I have a Clicgear, but I actually prefer carrying right now.

    I walk and carry on any course that will let me. I have a Clicgear I use only when it’s raining hard because I like the umbrella holder.

    Carry.... 7 or 8 clubs max. Play 'keep it out of the ****' golf. Not long at all just keep it straight and let my chipping and putting sort out my scores!
  • mattdubyamattdubya Members Posts: 90 ✭✭
    for the longest time i would just rent a pull cart at the courses but i decided this year i am going to carry and walk. i do like walking more if i am being serious about a round. i'd rather a cart if it's raining or if it's insanely hot...or the course is too hilly.



    i have carried a couple of times so far this year and it's definitely got a better vibe...reminds me of growing up dicking around on the course. good times.
