I would suggest you choose a 3 wheel cart, easy to push, doesnt tip over easily and easier to store just due to one less wheel than a 4 wheel cart.

I would look for a score card holder, drink holder and not much else. My Clic Gear has a flip open storage are in the handle and a net that will hold a drink if its capped, but my bag also has a bottle pocket and I rarely use the flip open storage.

You may want one that folds up completely just due to your cargo space in your car, but if space is an issue.

My wife and I have one each, one is an old Bag boy, and the other is a Clic gear 3.0, and honestly, I paid $5 for the used Bag Boy, and $85 for the used Clic Gear, and I find that either is suitable and both are easy to push.  The Clic Gear does look a bit more classy, but other than that, there really isnt much difference.

Both carts are useable with either a large cart bag, or a stand bag.  You might have to adjust the holding straps slightly, but overall its not much bother.

I have a Clic Gear (I think it is the 2.0) and it serves my needs very well.

I would go with a four wheel cart, I find its more stable than my old Sun mountain 3 wheel cart. The Clic Gear seems to be the only 3 wheeler out there that gets the highest ratings.  
If you want a seat make sure that you check out the cost and how sturdy it is.  For 4 wheelers, the Sun mountain or the Bagboy seem to be the best, with a small edge to the Bagboy.
Foam tires are the way to go, remembering to pump up the tires in the inflatable ones is a real pain.

I have the original model Bagboy Express 3 wheel push cart, it must be 8-10yrs old as it was the second model push cart that they put out. I have never had a problem with it. It is smooth, stable and generally just a better way for me to play rather than carrying or pull cart. It has inflatable tires which may or may not need to be topped up once a year so no big deal. It folds by pressing one button and all wheels are removable so it stores small. It doesn't have the hand brake (it has a foot operated one) but I rarely ned to use the brake anyway. I have used the Sun Mountain 4 wheeler and it is solid and smooth but much more of a chore to fold and unfold. I have not seen it but the Bagboy 4 wheel one but it looks to be much more convinient to fold and unfold than the SM. Ogio also has a 4 wheeler out as well.

i like the Clicgear 3.0. The 4 wheel carts (like Sun Mountain) are lighter, both for pushing and loading, close to being as compact (though a bit longer). Don't think they are as sturdy though.
The two 4 wheel models I tried had rubber handles with lines that I found a bit uncomfortable on my hands (though it may just be me as I have  bit of arthritis). The Clicgear has foam handles- no problem for me.

Suggest you take your current bag with clubs to your local store and see how it fits on floor models, as some folks have concerns how some bags sit on the various carts especially if you have  a stand bag with the mechanism..

The Cadillac of pushcarts is the Clicgear 3.0.  Just pick the color you like & you will not have any complaints about the cart.  Stores great/compact, opens/closes super neat & easy, light and very sturdy. rolls great & very stable even with my staff bag on it.  This is a no brainer actually.....excellent product.

I have a bag boy quad(4 wheeler), that collapses within 5 seconds in 2 steps. Easy to mount cart bag, with only a velcro strap at the top. It's much more stable than a bag boy express that I used until January, 2012, and rolls straigher.  I like the storage poach below the handle, use it for glove or food snacks. Removed the water bottle carrier-why have a bottle exposed to the sun.

The Caddytek is a poor man's Clicgear. Pretty much the same feature set except you set the parking break with your foot. New for under 100 bucks if you look around. Costco runs them on sale for 99.00 a few times a year. Going on my 4th season with mine without a single problem.

Clicgear is the Cadilac of push carts.  I love mine.  However for the best benefits use a cartbag with it.

I use a Bag Boy Quad with a C130 bag.  It's not idea because the clubs all rest on each other, but it gets the job done.  The whole setup isn't exactly light.  I liked using it this past summer when it was easy to push and I could carry a bunch of water (or beer depending on the round:)).  The Quad folds up really quickly and fits in a fairly small area.  You don't need a cart bag to use it either.

+1 for the clic gear. Like the look and it works great. I use an Ogio stand bag with it and it works fine for me. I wanted to make it easier to walk by getting the push cart but still wanted a stand bag for just going to the range or playing a quick 9.
