Im a fit 33 and I love to us my Clicgear. I dont always use it but when we set a tee time at course that doesnt change elevations too much Im definitely walking/pushing. I enjoy walking straight to my ball, having that extra minute to make my read or take a practice swing. I feel less rushed and more focused on my game. I simply enjoy the round more. I know the experience is the same if a person carries but if I can get all that without having to throw that bag over my shoulder 100 times then why wouldnt I?



I used to carry at the local par 3 course with a pencil/ range bag when I started. Now I take my cart there too

I am 31 and workout at least 5 days a week- I love my push cart.  I used to carry my bag until I got paired up a couple times with some fast-playing, scratch golfers who like to ride in a cart.  Trying to keep up with them while carrying can turn playing a round of golf to a real workout.  I noticed that my swing would get sloppy towards the end of a round too.  After that happened a couple times I got a push cart.  It has been one of the best purchases I have ever made.  Now, when I play with any "speedsters" I can push and jog.  I still get to walk and enjoy the course and my swing stays more intact down the stretch.  I almost exclusively use my push cart but every now and then I might still carry my bag.  I usually only do it if 1) I forget to bring my push cart; 2) I can see it will rain; 3) or if I am playing a quick 9 after work.  
Now those golf boards (motorized golf skateboards) are really cool and I would absolutely ride a lot more if I had one of those.

54. I usually carry, but occasionally will use a pull cart. I can't get the hang of a push cart. It seems unnatural to me.

Back when I used to walk, I'd carry. I used pull carts as a kid at the local muny, and HATED them. I really love the looks and idea of the Clicgear pushcarts though, and may get one. My home course is super hilly (almost mountainous), so carrying 18 is almost out of the question... LOL, and I'm a workout fiend and 41. I could carry 9 out here and it would be a solid workout.

What I'm really thinking about with the push cart is getting my little kids and wife out to walk 9 when it warms up. I know the kids will want all sorts of drinks and snacks, along with their clubs, so I'm thinking my wife and I will need push carts to haul all the crap around! hahaha...

I voted cart since that's what I usually use for 18 holes, but usually carry for 9 as I'm too lazy to dig the cart out of the garage for super twi.

I just got a push cart after carrying for years. Makes everything so much easier... I'm in my early 30s so all my buddies are already giving me endless amounts of grief but I don't care. They will all be converted eventually, I was the first one to get married too.

Love my Clic Gear, but the honeymoon is over.  Buying a new stand bag and going back to carrying especially when the turf is soft.  Might go to a limited set though.

Another vote for pushcart thanks to Clicgear and recently upgraded to the 8.0.  The 4th wheel is awesome!

I know I've already voted and may have already commented, but as of late I'm mixing it up and doing both.  I'm walking with a full set in cart bag on my Qwik Lock push-cart and carrying with a short-set (3HL, 5i, 7i, 9i, 50*, Putter) in an old 6" Callaway/Ogio stand bag.  I enjoy both and alternating helps keep both enjoyable.  Also, walking with the short-set will hopefully help me practice shot creativity and maybe even ball striking (irons are old DCI Oversize+).

Great minds think a like.  Either is better than a motorized cart IMVHO.  It's weird but racing around the course bumping around in a buggy is the least relaxing method of playing for me.

I like all three, actually... I have nothing against anything EXCEPT walking with a full bag, which has me cranky after about 6 holes and sore the next morning.

I like a motorized cart from time to time especially if good friends, alcohol, and no concern about scoring are all involved.

I think I'm more negative about them because 99% of people where I play never have considered there's any other way to play.

I've used a Clicgear 3.5+ for the past 4 years and never ever had a one complaint about it. I used to carry but 5.5/6hr rounds were killing my shoulders / back. Pushcart helps keep me from fatiguing from just carrying my bag. Plus the cooler on cart on the hot days is a huge plus.

Sorry to come in late but have we had a judgmental, "if you ain't carrying you're not a true player, bro!"  Post in a while?  

Just checking in on compliance is all.

I used a push pull cart for over 30 years , the reason my older brother told me , the pros don't carry why should you, still get the same amount of exercise.

I coached high schoolers and bought in to the whole "you aren't a man if you don't carry" mentality.  Then my 7 year old started playing and I was tortured watching him struggle with the constant hassle of taking his bag off and on.  I got him a Caddytek Caddylite EZ and saw his enjoyment level with the game really flourish.  Then I was walking through Academy and spotted a Clicgear 3.5+ on clearance for $97 and pulled the trigger for myself.  If you aren't using a cart, you are crazy.  It makes a round so much more enjoyable.

I wish my course was more walkable. It winds through neighborhoods and up and down lots of hills. 8 or 9 miles on pedometer depending on how you play.  Everybody rides.  I have a clickgear 3.0 and I would love to use it more, on more compact, walkable courses.  Way back when I was in my 20's, I loved to carry a bag.  After back surgery years ago and knee replacement recently, I don't think I'll ever carry again.

I bought a push cart for the first time this year (Speed Cart GT) and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. I can walk hilly courses and still have plenty in the tank to hit shots. I simply see no reason for walkers to carry.
