Guest author, Emilia Clarke, has some smart advice on choosing the best push cart for your golf game.
A golf push cart is used to carry a golfer’s accessories around the entire golf course. It provides an ease to the golfer and reduces her (or his) efforts carrying a heavy golf bag on her back. There are two styles: the four wheeler (traditional), and the three wheeler. (The three-wheeler cart has a pivoting wheel in the front.)
How to choose the best golf push cart
Define Your Requirements Whether you are playing for your amusement or you are a professional Golfer, you need a perfect push cart to carry your bag and golfing accessories.
A wide range of golf push carts are available in golf retail stores, or online. Some of the features to consider before making a purchase:
Aluminum Frame The cart should be well built and easy to roll. You must consider a durable, scratch resistant and lightweight frame. The best choice for the framing material is Aluminum. It is both rust and corrosion free.
Weight A lightweight design should be simple to push up the hills. The ideal weight of a push cart should not be more than 15 pounds. This weight of the golf Cart is also good for ladies and senior citizens too.
Braking System The breaking system plays a major role in the cart. The brakes should be mounted over or below the push handle. It will make the cart easier to control, while rolling it down the hill and will also insure you never have a runaway bag on your hands.
Extras Popular features built into carts include a three ball clip; cup holder; accessory mount; a towel holder; umbrella clip and holder. You should be able to store large cups and bottles easily in adjustable cup holders. If you often play in unpredictable weather or under the hot sun, an umbrella holder is essential.
Compact Design The golf cart should be easy to fold into a small, compact size that can be easily carried in a car’s storage trunk. A full bag should ride high with the club heads well away from the handle. The bag should sit in a convenient upright position allowing easy access to all your clubs.
Handle Quality The quality of the handle of the cart must be durable and should be adjustable within about a 45 degree so that persons of different heights can use the cart.
Tires and Wheels As golf courses have a wide range of different terrains, the tires should be large and strong so that they can easily roll over flat and more rugged areas. If the wheels are too small, it is hard to push the cart along. Large sized tires can either be of solid foam or EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate). Maintenance free and airless wheels that provide a great balance and traction will make a perfect push cart.
Conclusion Consider the manufacturing brand and price before purchasing.
