Updated January 2024 to add the MGI Zip Navigator Remote Control Electric Caddy.
I didn’t play golf out of a power cart until I was in college. Growing up playing with my dad, we always walked. It didn’t matter how hot it was during the Arizona summers, he was a firm believer that golf was a game meant to be played while walking.
While I’ve tempered my views and take a power cart occasionally now, I still prefer to walk when I play golf. There’s just something about getting into the rhythm of a round, enjoying your surroundings, and getting some exercise that makes walking preferable to riding in my mind.
The problem is that as I’ve become older, carrying my clubs has become more difficult thanks to a bad back. So, I’ve started using a pushcart to get my clubs around the course.
But for the longest time, I couldn’t find a pushcart I was 100% happy with. So, this year I embarked on a mission to change that. I spent months and months trying to find a pushcart that suited my needs and wants. In the process, I reviewed a lot of different pushcarts and have compiled a list of what I consider to be the best ones.
What You Should Consider When Buying a Pushcart
Just like every piece of golf equipment you’re thinking about buying, price is the first thing you should consider. Take it from me, there’s been plenty of equipment I’ve wanted to buy over the years, but simply haven’t been able to afford.
Pushcarts are no different. They vary in price, and you usually get what you pay for. So, make sure you can afford a particular pushcart before you buy it.
Next on the list of considerations is whether you want one that’s electric or manual. Electric carts are more expensive, but they give you the luxury of not having to push them all the way around the course. However, they require more maintenance and care than manual pushcarts.
After you’ve decided whether to go with a manual or electric pushcart, you should consider its weight, ease of storage, and maneuverability. Manual push carts are normally lighter in weight than electric push carts, collapse easily, and don’t take up much storage space.
On the other hand, electric push carts tend to be heavier, take up more space, and require more care pre- and post-round. But they’re also highly maneuverable.
Now that you have an idea of what to look for when purchasing a pushcart, let’s get into the best ones on the market in 2024.
Best Overall Push Cart -Bag Boy Nitron Auto-Open Pushcart
When I first saw the Bag Boy Nitron pushcart, it looked like just another generic pushcart. But it turns out, there’s a lot more than meets the eye.
Setup with this pushcart is super simple. Sure, it unfolds easily, but the process is also assisted by Nitro Piston technology which allows it to virtually spring into action.
This pushcart tracks remarkably well too. That’s thanks to the Top-Lok attachment that keeps it from twisting.
At only 16.75 pounds, the Nitron is lightweight compared to the competition. When it’s folded up for storage, it only measures 19” by 13.5” by 22”.
The Nitron also comes with an enclosed space for your scorecard and valuables, an extra storage bag, and cup and umbrella holders.
Bag Boy is an industry leader when it comes to push carts and the Nitron is one you can trust.
Best Push Cart for Most People – Clicgear Model 4.0 Pushcart
Clicgear is another reputable pushcart manufacturer.
Their Model 4.0 can be set up and collapsed in less than 10 seconds.
Compared to older models, the saddle of the 4.0 sits a lot lower. This improves stability not just on flat ground, but on uneven surfaces as well.
The 4.0 has a hand brake that’s easy to switch on and off so you’ll never have to worry about the cart rolling away or tipping over.
You can also adjust the height of the handlebar. Being taller than average, this feature keeps me from having to constantly bend over which is hard on my back.
Additional accessories included with the Clicgear 4.0 are a storage console, undercarriage mesh storage net, an umbrella mount, and four accessory mounts.
When collapsed, this pushcart measures 13” by 15” by 24”.
Built to last and highly functional, I’m a big fan of the Clicgear 4.0 push cart.
Now that we’ve covered a couple of manual pushcarts, let’s have a look at an electric one.
The MGI Zip Navigator is hands-down my favorite electric pushcart for 2023.
This cart comes with a fully directional remote that lets you dictate the path of the cart as you amble down the fairway at your own pace.
The cart also has intuitive downhill and uphill speed control which you can also control with the remote.
While those features are cool, there’s plenty more to the story. The internal gyroscope automatically tracks where the Navigator is headed and keeps it clear of any obstacles that might be in the way.
The pushcart is powered by a 24v 380wh lithium battery that can get through 36 holes without having to be recharged.
Throw in a three-year warranty and the MGI is a complete package.
Best Four-Wheel Push Cart – CaddyTek Four-Wheel Caddycruiser Pushcart
Four wheels give you more stability than just two or three. It’s pretty simple.
So, if you’re looking for a pushcart you know is going to stay upright, check out the CaddyTek Four-Wheel Caddycruiser pushcart.
EVA maintenance-free wheels on this pushcart have plenty of traction and are wide enough to give it plenty of balance, no matter the kind of terrain you find yourself on.
You can easily adjust the height of the handle to your comfort. This is a big deal for golfers that are both shorter and taller than average.
You’ll also find ample storage in the form of a protected compartment on top of the handle, and a canvas compartment that sits below the cart’s spine.
Simple, efficient, stable, and functional, it’s no wonder the CaddyTek Four-Wheel Caddycruiser has proven so popular this year.
Editor’s Choice – Bag Boy Quad XL Pushcart
Another top-end four-wheel pushcart is the Bag Boy Quad XL. In fact, it gets my vote for Editor’s Choice.
Despite its size, this pushcart is surprisingly light. Its frame is made of industrial-grade aluminum that’s lightweight and extremely durable.
I love the fact that the parking brake is mounted on the handle. It’s much easier to use than a pedal brake that’s located on the tire.
Additional features include under-handle storage, as well as umbrella and cup holders.
Best Three-Wheel Push Cart – CaddyTek Three-Wheel Pushcart
I didn’t know much about CaddyTek push carts until this year. And let me tell you, I’m glad they came across my radar.
The company’s three-wheel pushcart is super functional, and moderately priced.
Setting this cart up couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is push a single button.
The aluminum frame is lightweight. This allows the cart plenty of maneuverability, even in tight quarters.
EVA maintenance-free wheels and a 31” base provide plenty of stability.
The CaddyTek also comes with a storage bag, hard-shell valuables compartment, and an umbrella holder.
This might not be the fanciest cart on the market, but it more than meets your basic needs.
Best Electric Golf Push Cart – Alphard Golf Club Booster V2 Pushcart
If you want an electric cart, but don’t want to pay a premium price, be sure to check out the Alphard Golf Club Booster V2.
This pushcart turns your regular manual pushcart into an electric one. It only takes a few minutes to complete the conversion. All you need to do is remove your manual cart’s rear wheels and install the brackets of the Booster V2.
Once this is completed, you can control the cart with the remote control wherever you go.
In total, this cart includes a remote control, handle strap, brackets, wheelie bars, an AC/DC charger, and a USB cable.
Best Folding Pushcart – CaddyTek Explorer V8 SuperLite Four-Wheel Pushcart
One of the problems I kept running into with pushcarts I’ve had in the past was that they took up a lot of storage room.
That’s not the case with the Caddytek Explorer V8 SuperLite Four-Wheel pushcart. When it’s collapsed, it measures just 15.75” by 13.4” by 24”.
Set up, it’s 42” by 25.4” by 45.1”.
One of my favorite features of this cart is that it lets you adjust the width of the front wheel so you can fit any size golf bag.
Adjustable handlebar height is a big plus as well.
Compact, durable, and easy to use, you can’t go wrong with the CaddyTek Explorer V8 SuperLite Four-Wheel pushcart.
Most Compact Pushcart – KVV Three-Wheel Pushcart
If you’re anything like me, you’ve accumulated a lot of golf stuff over the years, and you don’t have enough room to store it all. Just ask my wife.
Because my storage space is so limited, I was ecstatic when I learned about the KVV Three-Wheel pushcart.
Folded up, its dimensions are just 19.1” by 14.6” by 23.2”.
But when this pushcart is unfolded it’s rather sizable and can fit just about any size golf bag on its frame.
The frame is made of high-grade aluminum that’s lightweight and extremely sturdy at the same time.
Maintenance-free EVA wheels have plenty of traction. I’ve had this cart on some really slippery surfaces and have never had a problem.
Even though this pushcart’s most attractive feature is its compact size, it has plenty of other cool features going for it.
Best Budget Golf Cart – SereneLife Two-Wheel Pushcart
If you’re looking for the absolute cheapest pushcart you can buy, it’s the SereneLife Two-Wheel pushcart.
Even though this pushcart lacks some of the amenities of other pushcarts on this list, it’s reliable and will get you around the course in comfort.
At under $100, you can’t really go wrong.
Final Thoughts on the Best Pushcarts for 2024
For those of us that like to walk but have trouble carrying our clubs for 18 holes, pushcarts are the answer. Thankfully there are plenty to choose from in 2024.
If you do a little of your own research and test before you drive, I’m confident you’ll find one that suits your every need.
