One of the most popular names in golf accessories is the Bag Boy golf cart. However, technically speaking, Bag Boy doesn’t offer customers traditional, driveable golf carts. Instead, its range of carts is made up mainly of pushcarts. In fact, for golf push cart enthusiasts, a Bag Boy golf cart is perhaps among the most reliable options.

Advantages of Push Carts

There are several reasons that people opt for bag boy golf carts over traditional, driveable golf carts. Chief among these is, of course, the additional exercise you gain by using a pushcart.

However, if you wanted to walk about the course for the longest time, it was far more popular to carry your bag rather than use a pushcart. Attitudes towards this tradition have changed for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is the growing popularity of brands such as the Bag Boy golf cart.

Another thing that has helped is new scientific research.

Studies indicate that using a pushcart burns nearly the same number of calories as carrying your bag – there is only a difference of three calories across nine holes of travel. Furthermore, carrying your bag may also increase the likelihood of developing back and ankle injuries – not to mention it is far less comfortable than using a pushcart.

Things to Keep in Mind When Buying a Bag Boy Golf Cart

If you are looking to buy a Bag Boy golf cart or other push carts, there are some factors that you should keep in mind:

How to Store Your Cart

A practical pushcart should be easy to store. It should be able to fold flat and compact when put away. This is particularly important if you live in a smaller home with less storage space or are storing your cart in your golf club.

Comfort

Your pushcart should be comfortable when using. The handle should be well-padded to be comfortable, and the height should be adjustable. This will ensure that they can do so no matter who is using the cart without an issue.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your arms should be parallel to the ground and should not be pressed up or down when you use the cart. This will prevent strain on your arms and ensure you can use your cart across the course without getting tired.

Stability

Pushcarts are available as either three-wheelers or four-wheelers. Four-wheeler pushcarts are usually more stable and tend to be the preferred option. However, regardless of which cart you buy, ensure that you find it easy to use the brakes.

Amenities

Many pushcarts also come with additional amenities, such as a storage space for your golf balls, mobile phone, car keys, and scorecard. Depending on the model, you may also have holding space for additional accessories such as an umbrella and GPS devices.

You must check the amenities that each model offers and buy only the one that meets your needs.

Final Thoughts

Aside from a Bag Boy golf cart, another convenient way to get around the golf course is to use a regular golf cart. This is the preferred option for people with mobility issues who cannot use a pushcart to get around.
