Golf Carts – the Magic of Three Wheels

Three Wheel Golf Carts Make Golf A Walk In The Park

 

For those of us who love to walk when we golf, the advent of the three wheel push cart has been a god send. The design idea for these golf carts appears to have originated from jogging stroller technology. The ability to give these carts a gentle push to set them in motion has enabled many a golfer who suffers from back or shoulder ailments to once again walk as they golf. This form of exercise is part of today’s culture to participate, to benefit and to have a healthier lifestyle. This has certainly been true for my husband. Prior to him acquiring one of these push carts he was never able to walk more than nine holes. Now he goes the whole eighteen holes with his new “cool” push cart.

There appears to be three major brands in this category – Sun Mountain, Bag Boy, and Clicgear.

Sun Mountain once again leads the industry with innovative products by

helping to invent these push carts, introduced their first Speed cart in 1999. Since that time their cart has evolved and improved. Their new push carts have adjustable smart brackets that secure the bag without straps. The bag rest is lower and the lower bag bracket allows it to fold with one motion.

In 2005 Bag Boy who, since 1946 has been a respected brand for quality

and durable products introduced the EZ Fold Three Wheel Push Cart. These carts have a patented easy folding technology which is also found in Baby Jogger strollers. They have now produced an ultra compact golf cart, the Bag Boy Golf Mini GT Three Wheel Push Cart.
This new model has an easily folding mechanism
that in 2 simple steps makes it Bag Boy’s smallest three wheel golf push cart.

Clickgear who have been developing this category for some time were the winner of the 2007 Best New Product Award at the PGA Merchandise Show. They developed the original compact push cart model which folds to incredibly small dimensions. Their current model has an easier folding mechanism, wider airless tires and eight sharp colors.

Considerations in selecting one of these carts should be:

  • How much does it weigh – can you easily lift it?
  • How easy is it to collapse? •Will it fit into your car or storage area?
  • Do you like the look and feel of it?
  • Does it easily adjust to your height?
  • Does it give you the features you want for the price that fits your budget?
  • Does it come with a warranty?

There is no doubt that these three wheel carts are more stable, push with more easily and follow your drives straight down the fairway.
