The best push carts include models that are compact, practical and colourful, so you should have no trouble finding something to consider
Best Push Carts
All the best push carts for golf share one thing in common; no longer are they heavy and cumbersome designs that are difficult to push and manoeuvre around the golf course.
These days, they are light, easy to assemble and have complex mechanisms that allow them to fold down compactly to make life easier for you.
Why choose a push cart over the best electric trolleys? For starters, push carts are less expensive. They’re also simpler to set up when you get to the course and require less faffing, as you don’t need to remember to charge a battery. They also have great storage options on the handle that can house your balls, tees, scorecard and other items.
The best push carts in golf in particular are great if you want something you can leave in your car or garage between rounds with nothing to worry about. They also tend to be lighter and also fold away smaller than electric trolleys.
If these qualities sound like something you’re interested in, read on to find out more about some of the best models on the market this year.

Best Push Carts For Golf
Stewart Golf R1-S Push Cart
+ Folding mechanism is clever while also making it easier to set up and put down quickly
+ Very easy to push around the course
+ The colour choice adds a pinch of personality
– Recommend using a cart bag as the stand bag we used made accessing clubs a bit clumsy
One of our favourite designs in this best golf push carts list, the R1-S from Stewart Golf improves on the R1 Push in a number of ways. Of course the different colour choices remain which are a nice feature, but the brand has created a folding mechanism that is a thing of beauty here. Add to that the fact the wheels run very smoothly and the cart can accommodate the biggest bags, and you have a model that is one of the best out there.

Bag Boy Nitron Push Cart
+ Outstanding folding mechanism
+ Compact and lightweight
– Premium price may be a stumbling block
One simple step is all you need to fold this Bag Boy Nitron cart up or down which is outstanding. The mechanism is lightning fast and yet do not think this limits its strength because the frame is robust whilst not being overly heavy so it is easy to use on the links. This compact size when folded down is a huge bonus when it comes to storage too.
Sun Mountain Pathfinder 3 Push Cart
Spacious console storage
+ Ample storage for bits and bobs
+ Straightforward structure
– Stability not as strong as other models
Create your own path on the course with this Sun Mountain Pathfinder. Two easy steps are needed to fold it up and down and we particularly liked the excellent level of storage here whether it be the accessory console, mesh basket, or the velour-lined valuables pouch. No doubt it can house everything you could possibly need on the course safely, making it one of the best golf push carts the market has to offer.
Clicgear 4.0 Push Cart
+ Feature packed
+ Improvements on previous design
– Can be fiddly to assemble
Clicgear has improved on the very popular 3.5+ model with this 4.0 design. Just some of the changes include a new lid lock, adjustable upper saddle, silicone straps, adjustable front wheel, umbrella tube strap, improved scorecard and pencil holder which is a long feature list indeed. The choice of different colour is a chance to add some individuality to your cart, whilst it is also very compact when folded down making it good for storage as well.
Tangkula Golf 3-Wheel Push Cart
Simple and inexpensive
+ Any sized golf bag fits well
+ Black stealth frame looks great
– Wheels are quite small
A cart that is very easy to assemble and fold, Tangkula has constructed this with high-quality aluminium which adds to the overall weight without making it too heavy and difficult to move. We particularly like the black finish of this cart which looks very menacing on the course and therefore undoubtedly scare your opponent into an almost certain defeat. Well, maybe not but it looks great regardless.
CaddyTek CaddyLite EZ V8 Cart
Built-in cooler pouch
+ Lots of features
+ Good colour choice
– Quite pricey option
CaddyTek has implemented its excellent one-click button mechanism here which folds the cart down brilliantly. It also has a strong aluminium frame that doesn’t seem to weigh anything at all making it easy to use, and there is also an umbrella holder, storage rack and get this, a miscellaneous basket with built-in cooler!
Motocaddy Cube Push Cart

Big Max Ti Lite Push Cart
Lightweight yet robust
+ Lightweight yet surprisingly sturdy and robust
+ Glides around the course requiring minimal effort
– Doesn’t fold down overly flat or compactly
The clue is in the name here; Ti Lite. This compact, lightweight construction weighs just over 11 pounds which means any person could use it with ease. It has good usability too thanks to the premium organiser panel with ample storage net for accessories, foot brake and height adjustable handle.
PowaKaddy TwinLine 4 Cart
+ Simple compaction mechanism
+ Easy manoeuvrability
– Not as compact when folded as other push carts on this list
At just 15 pounds, this cart is incredibly light and vert easy to setup too with its height-adjustable telescopic handle, allowing for quick folding as well as on-course adjustability. The look of it is modern and there are a number of nice features too, such as the accessory station and large wheels for manoeuvrability, making it one of the best golf push carts 2020 has in store.
Big Max Blade Quattro Push Cart
Enhanced stability for hilly courses
+ Fold flat mechanism is an excellent piece of engineering
+ Light and travels very easily around the course
– Price may put some off
This cart is light and travels easily around the course, but we think its best feature is the fold-flat mechanism which is an excellent piece of engineering. Adding to that is its stability, with the incorporation of the 4th wheel truly adding to the balance and cohesion of the cart even more on undulating golf courses.
Motocaddy P1 Push Cart
Lightweight for easy pushing
+ Quick folding system
+ Easy to push
– Have to be wary on some slopes
The lightweight P1 push model includes a thicker frame and a one-step folding system, allowing the trolley to be ready to use in seconds. I also includes the same features found on the Cube, plus a new easy-push rubberised handle.
Big Max Blade IP Push Cart
Flat folding for easy storage
+ A very well made, sturdy and lightweight push cart
+ The compact size when folded down makes it incredibly easy to store and transport
– The front wheel can be fiddly to unlock
As the picture above suggests, this cart folds down into the smallest of spaces- when folded down it has a depth of just below five inches which makes it ideal for storage. As such it is one of the most compact golf trolleys out there.
When it is folded up you will notice how light it is which makes it very easy to push around, even going up slopes.
