Golf Push Carts Buying Guide

1. Design and Build Quality

I remember the only ‘trolley’ that was ever owned in my family – the good old Gemini with a seat that my mom used to use. It was a revelation when it first came out.

My goodness, it’s a monstrosity now though, and time has marched on. The transition from push to pull has meant that both weight and aerodynamics underpin what is most important in terms of build quality and design.

You need something with minimum resistance and maximum glide. Yet while keeping it light is important, so is stability, and this isn’t always an easy balance to find.

For the rest, you’ll certainly want something durable, with solid wheels, and a decent frame.

You’d have to say these factors are on the second tier of importance compared to the above, but that’s certainly not to say they should be disregarded either. You’re looking for the complete package here, so take a look at the whole picture.

2. Ease of Use

There a lot of things that can stress you out on a golf course. A push cart should not be one of them. From start to finish, your next set of wheels needs to be a breeze.

How easy is it to assemble? How easy is it to attach your bag, and how snug does it fit? And most important, how easily does it fold up and store away? Of course, it’s also imperative that it sits comfortably as you walk, and that you get the maximum distance for the pressure you exert.

That said, it’s also no good having something which travels at the speed of light, but is hard to control. These are all the fine equilibriums that need to be kept, and it’s what separates the proverbial men from the boys.

3. Value for Money

Think of your next golf push cart as an investment. There’s no reason this shouldn’t last you for the next five years. Actually, it should last as long as you want it to – perhaps until you decide it’s time for a change.

With that in mind, go into this with a decent budget in mind.

There’s plenty of boxes that need to be ticked. The best thing to do is to rank them in order of priority in terms of what you’re looking for, and see which models most resoundingly get the job done with respect to each category.

Once you’ve narrowed it down to the remaining strong bunch of contenders, it simply becomes a straight shootout on price.
