Readers have been asking, “What is the best golf bag/push cart combo?” Although there are literally hundreds of possible combinations among the various stand bags, cart bags, push carts and electric carts, we put together the best options just for you.

There are bag/cart companies which have designed combinations to keep your bag stable and upright. But if you didn’t like either their bag or their cart, then it wasn’t attractive to buy the combo. However, there are alternative solutions.

To that end, we have put together “good,” “better” and “best” suggestions for your next golf bag/push cart combination. And the odds are that your game might be even more enjoyable when you walk the course.

Golf Push Cart

FEATURES THAT MATTER

Bag Security

When it comes to push carts and golf bag combinations, you never want to compromise bag security. The push cart needs longer arms to help “hug” the bag no matter what size the bag may be. Some push carts have technology built into the neckvwhich allows the bag stand to lock in.

The best push cart for golfers who have a stand bag is any of the Bag Boy push carts.

Wide Push Cart Bag Base

Push carts with a wide base keep the bag from twisting. Yes, having arms also helps prevent with bag twisting but the width of the base where your bag sits makes a huge difference.

Push carts that have a wide base are ClicGear and Sun Mountain. Bag Boy is also a good contender.

Best Electric Push Cart

More Tips

  • For the best results, choose a golf bag and golf cart from the same company. Motocaddy and Bag Boy are good options.
  • Stand bags on push carts tend to slide around and twist. For the best results, you should consider a cart bag.
  • Golf carts with a wide wheelbase are stable on side hills. ClicGear is a great example.
  • Some electric push carts work well with cart bags. MotoCaddy and MGI do well at keeping your bag stable. Most have a built-in brake to prevent your cart from running away on hills.
  • If you are taller or shorter than average, look for a golf push cart with adjustable handles.

The Best Golf Bag/Cart Combo 2022 – FAQ

Q: Does it matter how many wheels a push cart has?

A:  Most of the best golf push carts of 2022 are three-wheeled models with a 360-degree front wheel. They tend to be easier to maneuver. Golfers who play on uneven terrain may want to consider a four-wheeled cart as they tend to be more stable.

Q: Do push carts work with golf stand bags?

A: While just about any cart can handle a stand bag, the frequent twisting can be frustrating. Features like Bag Boy’s Top-Lok were designed to eliminate the frustration many stand bag owners experience when using a push cart. Motocaddy also has a bag and cart combo that locks together with ease.

Q: How does an electric cart work?

A: Electric carts are powered by small batteries. The batteries need to be charged after every round through a power outlet. Depending on the battery type, you should get two to five seasons out of the battery depending on how many rounds you play.

      Big Max. Unless your cart is electric, a Big Max is better. They make bags too.

      Ryan, I agree! I have a Big Max FF push cart and I love it. I’m 6’6″ and all I do is walk, and this cart is the only one that is ergonomically friendly for me! It’s a bit unstable if one side of your bag is too heavy, and may cause it to fall over, but it is a workhorse

      It seems to me that most of the negative comments regardinr push/electric hand carts and bags have to do with security and/or twisting. Few if any. seem to note the problem that I constantly experience. Due to the “angle” that the bag “lays at” in a handcart, I find that I have to spend 15 minutes or so before a round realigning the slots that my clubs normally occupy in my cart bag. If I don’t then, I must struggle to pull a club out of my bag. Cart bags are seemingly designed for the longer woods/irons to be in the topmost slots,, and access then tends to be restricted by the handle or accesory pieces attached to it.. Does anybody offer a bag the would stand upright enough in a pull/push cart to allow me to just put the bag on the cart and head for the first tee?

      Look up Clever Caddie on eBay. The company went out of business, but there’s some still available. I used these carts exclusively for 10 years before (previously called Upright Caddy). Love the cart, bag sits straight up and down. Really wish this design would have caught on with more mainstream manufacturers!!

      No MGI ZIP and MGI Lite-Play bag that locks in in the base?

      “Our BAGLINK© technology is uniquely designed to lock the bag onto any Zip Series model and prevent twisting or turning whilst playing your round.”

      I walk almost all my rounds and use a Sun mountain 3-wheeler. Although it’s large when folded, space is not an issue in my SUV. I still find this car to be everything I’m looking for. As for a bag, I went very “unpretentious” this year. Really evaluated what I carry in my bag durng a round & then found a very light, very simple $99 bag w/ dividers that has worked out great for me.

      I saw an Alphard Club Booster V2 unit in the photo, surprised at the lack of mention in the article. I have my Alphard paired with a BagBoy TriSwivel cart and a SM C130 2022 bag. Once adjusted, the straps velcro together, so no wearing out of elastic over time. Plenty of room between front wheel and cart base so no rubbing. Had to shorten the front swivel lock release cable so it stays released – a minor issue that would not have been a bother if I pushed the rig, but chose the swivel model to conserve the Alphard’s battery when steering. A remote in my hand tells the wheels to go, stop, change speeds, or turn (by turning one wheel harder than the other), so I can walk casually as if not golfing, which stretches my body’s energy budget. A bit of work setting things up the first time, as the cart’s original rear wheels need to be removed and Alphard’s clamps installed, but great instructions on paper and online. Also not the most wallet-friendly combo, but if your game is suffering from senior citizen-ness, worth a look and investment.

      I’m surprised the Sun Mountain Sync Cart Bag/Sun Mountain Cart didn’t make your list. The Sync has a slot in the base that matches the bottom base so the bag doesn’t turn. It also has a rangefinder pocket that flips up when you are mounting the bag, and the straps go under it. You previously gave it a positive review. I have a SM Pathfinder – Ping and Callaway bags sat too low on it and the straps interfered with putter well. The Sync cured that issue.

      I recognize that you can’t cover every cart/bag combination, but when SM makes a bag expressedly for push carts, I would think it deserves a mention.

      I have the same combo with the Sync and Speed Cart GT. Only issue currently is if I have to upgrade the Sync bag then I’ll need to upgrade my cart or replace the base. Sun Mountain re-frabricated the base of the cart and bag and they are not compatible with prior models. I’m a big fan of SM. Prior to my current setup I had their Access bag and OG Speed Cart.

      I own the MotoCaddy M1 cart and have their bag. Glad to see this is getting the recognition it deserves.! The bag is awesome without the cart too.
      I’ve owned a ClicGear push cart and had one of the hard to find ClicGear bags too in the past and the Motocaddy combo is far superior.
