Clicgear 2.0 push cart when I walk. I'm 62 with a chronic bad back and haven't carried in 25 years. And when it's sunny and hot, I open up the umbrella and it makes a big difference being out of the sun for most of the round. I ride on weekends (required at the course), vacations, or on very hilly courses.

Clicgear 3 makes it so much easier. I like this much better than my Bag Boy push cart I had before. Well made, easy to use, and folds up small.

That looks like a good cart. Do you have the seat and if so do you use it?

I have the seat on my Clicgear 3 and yes I use it a lot on the weekends when play is a bit slower.

You can not fold up the cart with the seat on tho, but removal from the cart is just a push button release. I also changed the seat on the post to a quick release as well.

I walked and carried up until earlier this season.  In the spring, I blew out the seam on another carry bag (2nd bag in 2+ years) and decided getting a Clicgear would be cheaper in the long run plus I ain't getting any younger.  I feel fresher at the end of a round and have played numerous 27 hole days and a few 36.  Also been able to play a lot more consecutive days as the shoulders and back feel much better without the added weight.

I have back problems, so I haven't carried in about 15 years, but wanted to walk again.  I picked up a cheapo pull-cart and hated it.  I then bought a Sun Mountain push cart, and love it.  It takes very little effort on the old back to push them around for 18 holes.

Always carry. Old habits from junior tours and high school golf.

I prefer to carry, and will cut the number of clubs in my lightweight bag. If I go with a full set and walk, it is usually with a 2 wheel pull cart. I have a 3 wheel speedcart, but it is not as maneuverable and feels like a baby stroller. On real hot, humid days, I will take a cart. Carts are free with my membership, but I appreciate the exercise by walking.

We have caddies at our course and we cannot carry our bag until after 3:00 PM. The policy is to promote our very successful caddie program and to generate a little revenue with the motorized carts. Unfortunately we don't have pull carts. I would gladly pay to use one after 3:00 PM but we haven't done that yet.

I love courses that require caddies. The purest way to play the game, IMO.

99.9% of the time I carry. Same as said before ,at 59 , a stronger back and legs are a good thing. I use the Ogio Schling harness which does a great job balancing the load.

I use my cart most of the time.  It is easier, don't have to worry about weight and can carry lunch.  I really want an electric one but thats a little above my means right now.  Now that is walking in style.  It isn't a shape thing, just an easier thing.  I'm looking to play well, not get the best workout I can.

The workout really is negligable compared to walking with a purpose, but I always play better when I walk.

I have the Sun Mtn 4 wheel push cart. Very stable but wished I could stand bag up a little more. Does fold up nicely though.

I walk when ever I can and love it plus seem to play better. Exception is if extremely hot or group that rides. Walking gives you time to think AND forget. Plus my local course has lots of deer and turkeys and a few kite pairs. Very relaxing plus deer tracks in green can be great reason for that close but missed putt if you need/want an excuse. a2_wink.gif

IF it's a fairly flat 9-hole course or a Par 3 course, I carry my bag.

 

Otherwise, I ride. My home course and another course I play on occasion are subdivision courses: You have a quarter mile here and there between the last green and the next tee. Non-riders would get run into the ground by the cart-mounted "cavalry." My home course does not allow walkers, the other discourages it.

I always carry it when I walk. I've only used a push cart once.
