These Carts Don’t Spoil a Good Walk

With all deference due to Mark Twain, golf doesn’t have to be a good walk spoiled.
One might argue that no walk is spoiled, with the exercise it presents those of us who are too often caught up in sedentary occupations or just too darn busy with household chores to get in a regular workout.
Golf, of course, provides us an excellent excuse to walk. Quite to the contrary of naysayers who claim that golf is not a sport, or at least not an aerobic activity, walking nine or 18 holes is indeed a fine way to burn off some calories.
Studies have shown that walking 18 holes and carrying your golf bag can burn as many as 700 calories. Even not carrying a bag can burn off between 500 to 600 calories. Playing nine holes amounts to around two miles of walking, double that number for 18 holes. Being that hardly any of us hit it straight down the middle every time and given the distance it takes to get from green to tee, you can figure another half mile to a mile can be added to those totals.
Many of us either can’t or don’t want the burden of carrying a golf bag on our shoulders when we are playing. That’s why manufacturers have devised state-of-the-art push and/or pull carts on wheels that save wear and tear on our backs and arms, while providing almost all the comforts of a little rolling locker, from pouches to store valuables and extra clothing to scorecard and bottle and can holders.
Let’s take a look at some of the best carts on the market.        


Clicgear 3.0
The Clicgear 3.0 has its handle console completely redesigned with almost double the storage room and even more room underneath with a new storage net. A new center mounted brake handle is easier to use, and handle foam has been replaced with a much more durable material. A new push button lock design for the front wheel pivot is more robust and intuitive to use. Three accessory tabs have been added to the handle to easily install Clicgear accessories, including a new standard cup holder. Airless wheels have double sealed bearings and a press fit design proven to be the strongest available in golf.

It’s also equipped with maintenance free, oversized wheels that roll through the fairways and rough with ease, enabling golfers to effortlessly maneuver the cart on all terrains and in all weather conditions.

Sun Mountain Micro Cart

The four-wheel Micro Cart folds 25 percent smaller and weighs 20 percent less than leading push carts. The Micro Cart tips the scales at 13 pounds and folds down to 52 cubic inches. Its small folded footprint and its light weight make the cart easy to get in and out of a vehicle. Also, due to the patented four-wheel design, the cart has a low center of gravity, which results in superior stability on the course. Micro Cart comes with no assembly required and folds and unfolds in two easy motions. The Micro Cart comes standard with the E-Z Latch for hassle-free handle height adjustment.

Sun Mountain Speed Cart SV1

The Speed Cart SV1 offers a new and bigger console, a new E-Z Latch System, an improved brake system, and solid foam tires to go with the performance and ergonomics for which the Speed Cart is known. The totally redesigned console for the SV1 is divided into three separate sections that allow golfers to separate and divide various electronic devices and accessories. The E-Z Latch System allows easier folding, unfolding and handle height adjustment, and solid foam tires with anodized wheels match the color of the frame
