Good plan. I like my Clicgear 3.5 push-cart. I'd stay away from *pull* carts. For me, they put a strain on my shoulder.  My $0.02.

Push carts, to me, are so much easier to use than pull carts.   You need a minimum of 3 wheels but as @mohearn said, Clicgear makes a good one.

Here's a quote from ... me. 

"In my opinion (opinions are like assholes, everyone has one) the most important option in a push cart is to have a brake release handle NOT a toe activated brake. Again, this is one man's opinion, but I find the toe operated brake annoying and the handle infinitely better."

Pull carts suck! Get a ClicGear push par 4.0. For $500 aside from battery operated have at it. Do some research as to what you are want. That is the key to a good push cart. Know what you want. Your budget is not an issue for you.

I’ve had a Sun Mountain micro cart going about 11 years now.  It’s been really good quality, no issues.  I did break a wheel about 5-6 years ago (my fault) and it was easy to get a replacement wheel.

That said, I am currently looking to replace it with a 3 wheeled version.  Several of my buddies have the 3 wheel speed cart and they do push through the grass easier (I would assume due to the larger wheels, and only three of them).  Also, my new bag doesn’t fit quite as good between the front wheels of the micro cart.  I’m planning to go Sun Mountain again due to my experience with my current cart.

Thats my experience, if it’s helpful.  Make sure you get one with an umbrella holder (which actually come standard on all the quality carts I’m aware of), not for the rain as much as for the sun.

I did not know there was a difference in a push and pull cart… I assumed you could push or pull whichever cart you bought.. Im totally ignorant to the subject, thanks for the feedback..

@MississippiSteve tons on reviews online for pull carts. first is know what you want. 3 or 4 wheels. Second know what you want the cart to have. Foot or hand brake, clothing Basket, phone holder. Most have these already but there are some no frills ones. ClicGear you can add on as you go. Want a bigger cup holder you can order it. Longer umbrella holder that moves yup. A chair. You see where I am going. Sun Mountain also makes a good one. Tgw has there own that is functional and comes with some good stock items. Good luck. 

Shit I meant push cart reviews. Ugh coffee time.

Sun Mountain, ClicGear, Bag Boy all make good carts. A guy I play with has one from Costco, I don’t remember the brand, and it seems to be be good, too.

You can "push" a pull cart if you want to. You just have to balance it to get it into a neutral position. And sometimes this is easier than a 3 or 4 wheel "push" cart when you are going uphill. And you don't need to remember to set the brake to prevent your cart from rolling into a pond when you are not looking. (an embarassing experince!) I switch between 3 wheel push carts and 2 wheel pull carts depending on the size of my bag that day. The 3 wheel carts seem to support heavier bags. My favorite is a inexpensive Walter Hagen (Dicks/ Golf Galaxy brand) 3 wheel golf cart that I got at a garage sale for 10 bucks. You can use it as a 3 wheel push art or remove the 3rd wheel and use it as a pull/push cart. Best of both worlds!

I have a Clicgear 4.0 and love it.  I agree with @ChetlovesMerand prefer a "Hand Brake" over a "Foot Brake".  They had supply chain issues during COVID but I just check Amazon and found them in stock.

I recommend the Sun Mountain 3 wheeled carts 

I'm not a fan of 4 wheelers

Something to think about might be foam/solid tires instead of something that can go flat

After looking at the reviews on clicgear website, things didn’t look good.. people asking if the company had gone under? Anybody have any recent experience with them?

 

ClicGear are the best carts.

A friend I played with this morning has a clicgear 3.5.  He said it’s been great, his only disappointment has been that a plastic part related to the hinge/pivot has worn down over the years and causes the cart to sag a little to point where there is some rubbing.  I certainly don’t know these carts at all, I wonder if some of the clicgear guys have experienced something similar, and are aware if there’s an easy fix.

    • Day 284 - More practice at home today: Chipping - Distance control with my short wedge shots has been an issue so ladder drill with eight balls; started hitting balls successively short (about 3 paces) to long (about 19 paces), then repeated starting with long to short.  Contact/low point control - 9 to 3 drill with a 7i checking to be sure that low point happens in front of ball (9 to low point) then trying to match the low point hitting AlmostGOLF balls. 
    • This may be a dumb question. But it looks like you carry a 2 iron and a 4 iron. Wouldn't a 3 iron fill the gap without bending anything? Or are you trying to get the distance up on your 2 iron so that it's closer to your driver distance? 
    • Yes,  I have had 2 U500s and the 3 iron was a degree weak off of spec so it had to be adjusted. You need to have them checked before you assume they are correct and then go from there. The 4 iron that I kept was fine. 
    • I was ~9 or so when Physical came out and me and my friends waited for it to come on the radio as often as possible. Much more recently (3 weeks ago), my daughter went to a theater summer camp and they learned and performed Grease so we'd been watching/listening to that A LOT lately as well.
    • Day 281, August 9, 2022 Hit 20 balls after lessons. Backswing feeling better. Just have to keep that while working on the transition. Almost can't throw it behind me enough.
