Golf Push Cart Reviews - Overall Ranking

Summer 2015 – Reviews, ratings and rankings of the best golf push carts. Our editors test and compare the newest golf push carts head-to-head to help you determine which golf push cart is best. Products tested include the Bag Boy TriSwivel, Sun Mountain Micro Cart, Clicgear 3.5+, Bag Boy Quad, and CaddyCruiser ONE series.

Bag Boy TriSwivel

Bag Boy TriSwivel

Bag Boy takes a step back from the trend toward four-wheeled carts and instead introduces the TriSwivel, a three-wheeler with a pivoting front wheel. We were dubious at the outset, but the ease with which the TriSwivel can be maneuvered around the course was a revelation. You don’t really realize how taxing it is on your back and shoulders to constantly pop up a golf push cart’s front wheel for course corrections until you don’t need to do it anymore! Add in some thoughtful design elements, reasonable storage space, and solid construction, and you’ve got one of our new favorites in the golf push cart world. Read on for our full review of the Bag Boy TriSwivel.
Retail price: $269.95
Availability: No longer available, replaced by the Bag Boy Triswivel II,which is essentially the same as the original version

Clicgear 3.5+

Clicgear 3.5+

The Clicgear 3.5+ introduces a novel combination – more features and a lower price. The improvements are largely incremental from the prior generation Clicgear 3.0, but a bigger storage net is always a good thing! The Clicgear 3.5+ is a great performing cart with snazzy looks to boot – whether you like the new color combinations or not is a different matter… For all the details, check out our full Clicgear 3.5+ review.

Rovic RV3F

Rovic RV3F

Clicgear has rebranded its lines of carts as “Rovic by Clicgear”. Not sure why the change in branding, but hey, let’s roll with it. The RV3F is their “full featured” cart. The cart, at 36″ tall x 16″ x 13.5″ when folded isn’t exactly compact, but it does provide a host of features. Key components include a hand brake, 3-ball clip, adjustable cup holder, accessory mount, umbrella clip and holder, 4 accessory tabs near the console, handle adjustment knob for handle height, and a storage bag. The Rovic RV3F also comes in 5 different colors. Read more in our full Rovic RV3F review.

Bag Boy Quad

Bag Boy Quad

The Bag Boy Quad presents a challenge to Sun Mountain’s Micro in the four-wheeled golf push cart world. It’s not the most compact, flashiest or largest cart in terms of storage space, but it’s well-built, easy to unfold and rolls well. Read on for our detailed Bag Boy Quad review.

OGIO X4 Synergy

OGIO X4 Synergy

The OGIO X4 Synergy is the first push cart we’ve reviewed that lets you keep your bag secured to the cart while folding and unfolding the cart. So go ahead and toss the whole lot of it, bag and push cart, right in your trunk! We found that the benefit of leaving the bag on the cart, however, will vary widely among users: do you want to lift the weight of your clubs and the cart all at the same time, and will the combined entity fit into your car? Has most of the standard features you expect to find on push cars, but pricing is on the high side, and there is limited storage. Read on for our OGIO X4 Synergy review.

Sun Mountain Speed Cart V1

Sun Mountain Speed Cart V1

First introduced in 1999, the Sun Mountain Speed Cart V1 is one of the pioneering devices in the push cart world. Unfortunately, its size (a whopping 3 feet long even when folded up), weight and design no longer compare favorably with some of the newer entrants in the market.

AJAX Parkridge

AJAX Parkridge

While this cart qualifies as an exceptional value for some (hey, if you can find it, it might even be free), even doubling as a cart and bag in one, the AJAX Parkridge simply can’t keep up with the competition. The Parkridge is held back by the dated styling, poor weight distribution, lack of storage, and a extendable seat which is too small to fit an American-sized behind.
Retail price: As negotiated at garage sale

Caddytek CaddyCruiser ONE V3

Caddytek CaddyCruiser ONE V3

Caddytek (or is it CaddyTek? Not even their website knows…) iterates on their lone 4-wheeled push cart with the Caddytek CaddyCruiser ONE V3, alternatively known as the “CaddyTek One-Click Folding 4 Wheel Golf Push Cart – V3.” This 3rd generation Caddytek folds to compact size (with just a single button click to release), has front wheel suspension (the only push cart to offer this), and a reasonable price.

Caddytek CaddyLite EZ

Caddytek CaddyLite EZ

Caddytek goes straight-up against the Clicgear 3.5+, one of the top-rated push carts in our tests, with their latest top-of-the-line 3-wheeled push cart, the CaddyLite EZ. We mention this comparison as this is how they market the CaddyLite on their website as well.

Clicgear Model 8

Clicgear Model 8

Clicgear tries something on new for a change in 2014 with their Model 8, which features a new four-wheeled design and enhancements to the Clicgear 3.5+. At nearly 22 pounds, this cart is the new heavyweight in the category, though still collapsing into 27″ x 17″ x 15″ size. The cart features a hand level that activates the dual front brakes, a number of accessory tabs and holders, solid tires, and a large storage tray. Read more about the Clicgear Model 8.

Rovic RV1C

Rovic RV1C

The Rovic RV1C is the “compact” cart in the new series of Rovic push carts by Clicgear, and is a slight iteration to the Clicgear 3.5+. The RV1C, at 24″ tall x 15″ x 13″ is just a hair taller when folded than the Clicgear 3.5+, but otherwise offers a nearly identical feature set, though lacks a storage net under the console. The RV1C has a hand brake, console with cup holder, accessory mounts, umbrella clip and holder, and comes in 3 different colors: Charcoal/Black, Charcoal/Lime and Arctic/White.

Sun Mountain MC3 Micro-Cart

Sun Mountain MC3 Micro-Cart

The Micro-Cart gets updated in 2015 with the MC3, the latest offering in Sun Mountain’s patented line. The MC3, like its predecessors, folds in two steps to a relatively small footprint, making it simple to get in and out of your car. The MC3 has upgraded to larger diameter tires, which combined with the low center of gravity on the Micro-Cart line, make the bumps on the course that much easier to tackle (you won’t even notice those gopher holes). Read on for more details about the Sun Mountain MC3 Micro-Cart.

Sun Mountain Micro-Cart Sport

Sun Mountain Micro-Cart Sport

Sun Mountain slightly updates their popular Micro-cart for 2013 with the new Sport. The Micro-cart Sport provides all of the advantages of the original Micro-Cart, with the addition of new colors (spice things up with yellow, lime, blue or red). The cart retains it’s four-wheel design, compact folded footprint and light weight. Stay tuned for our detailed Sun Mountain Micro-cart Sport review.

Sun Mountain Reflex

Sun Mountain Reflex

Don’t be scared off by the four-step folding method of Sun Mountain’s new Reflex push cart – break out your origami skills and fold it down to a small 25.0″ X 15.0″ X 11.0″, and lift the 17.0 cart right into your trunk. The Reflex offers more storage space than most carts, with two padded valuable trays in addition to the standard holders for scorecard, golf balls and booz…er, fluids. The 180-degree range of adjustment for the push handles, in addition to adjustable handle height, is a twist (bada-bum-bum) as well. Read on for more details about the Sun Mountain Reflex.
