We understand there has been a little bit of discussion in the news lately about golf push versus pull carts. Here at GolfSoftware.com where we work to develop golf-related software that will save you time (administering league play, entering scores, calculating handicaps, and running reports), we tend to look at these issues from the perspective of: Use whatever tools will make your golf game easier and more fun.
So with that being said, if you have a push or pull cart in your garage and you are happy with what you have then keep doing what you are doing. If you are shopping for a new way to get the golf accoutrements from hole to hole and the old back is a little tired of lugging the bag then take a look at push carts.
From our perspective there are three things to consider:
- Ergonomics – what is going to be easiest on the joints over the long haul. Let’s face it, we want to play golf for as long as possible so wear and tear should play into the financial equation.
- Will it fit in the car? Take a moment to check out the dimensions of your trunk. Think about the cart AND your gear.
- Durability? I’m hearing lots of chatter about bigger (inflatable) wheels help the cart move more easily, collapsible carts, and don’t forget about hand or foot brakes.
There is a lot of information on the web; however here is a link to one of my favorite summary articles. 8 Things to Know Before Buying a Push Pull Cart. Take a moment to read through this quick article before you shop.
