I'm fifty and when I walk (usually only in the winter, no carts allowed) I usually carry. I just like the convenience of my clubs going everywhere with me.  But probably the biggest reason I usually carry is I switch vehicles that I'm driving quite a bit and I get tired of moving everything. So the push cart sits in the shop most of the time.

I think though it would be really nice though  to not have to basically empty out the bag in order to lighten it. Plus I've switched away from my SM Hybrid bad because it's a single strap. Maybe it would be worth it to take the extra time and throw the push cart in.

Your post reminds me of how devoted I am to having all my clubs with me when I approach the green.  I'm always using different clubs to chip/pitch, and on the occasions I'm using a power cart I hate guessing about which chipping club I'll use, and I fear that if I get there with the wrong one I'll "make do" instead of walking back, so I grab a handful.  Having your push cart there with you nearer the green is a blessing for me.

Back to push carts vs. walking, on my favorite course there are several holes where a green and the subsequent tee are far up hill and switching back in direction, and walkers customarily leave there clubs at the bottom of the hill, and carry a chipping club, a putter and a driver for the next hole up to the green in their hands.  From the bottom of the hill you can't see your ball up near the green, so you have no idea of the lie.  If like me you feel that pushing makes it easier to bring all your clubs upstairs, it's another good reason to pick that vs. walking.

I always prefer my push cart.  I hate throwing extra weight on my shoulders if I dont need to, especially in heat.  That said when I have to take a cart I like just leaving my bag on the cart and walking to the ball and my playing partner that day brings me my club when I approach.  It doesn't slow play to much but on a few holes at my home course the long walks between holes is nice to have a cart to cheat it.

No matter what age you are carrying your bag is just foolish. You are adding unnecessary stress to your lower back. Eventually, time will catch up with you. Good luck on your decision!

When I worked at a golf course many many years ago my boss told me he hated pull carts and they were worse for the course than gas carts. More pounds per square inch. This was 15 years ago when they were metal with 2 wheels. I'm sure that's not the case now with more wheels and lighter materials.

A person's foot has a lot more Pounds/Square inch than a pull/pushcart.

I carry when I do 9 holes and take the push cart when I do 18.  I feel like over 18 holes fatigue will set in around hole 14 or 15 and affect my scoring.  I only ride when everyone else in the group is riding or it comes with the golfnow deal.

I walked 18 yesterday with my Clicgear 3.0 and attached seat; yeah, you heard me.. I love it and so do others.  I got at least three -wow's and I need to get one of those.  Makes walking nice too, particularly the seat and sun umbrella during slow and sunny rounds, as there's always a place to park me backside in the shade. :)   Its especially easy up hills and mounds and down the backside too, where I typically let it loose.  Its never tipped over either.   Relatively free-rolling with all the conveniences, and minimal weight and trunk space.  Best cart I've owned.

I've been looking into the seat.  It makes so much sense I need to just pull the trigger.  Having a seat while having a beverage in my cup holder with the umbrella up sounds like a slice (pun intended) of heaven..

Clicgear offers a creative cigar holder attachment.  Also an umbrella extender which alllows the umbrella to nearly cover me while on the seat...really nice when seating and leaning back on my bag with a cigar, waiting... which was, at times, the case Sunday.  The two goof balls we played with were all over the place in the cart, and struggled with ready golf, even where to park the cart.  The seat attachment is rather ingenious too; nothing to putting it on/off and weight is nominal.  Works on almost any terrain and stable on cart paths.  My next purchase is the cooler bag.

I used a Clickgear 3.0 for the last 2 years. Holding up great so far. Didn't get the seat attachment so thanks for the reminder! The seat should help take another 2-3 strokes off my game.

They have a cooler bag or are you referring to a normal cooler bag?  I'm flying down to the PGA show for a few days and i'm going to talk with the Clicgear guys to see whats on the horizon.

Last season was my first season with a Sun Mountain push cart and it was my first season in about 7 years I didn't have to miss time with a back injury. I regret not getting one sooner. It was a great investment.

I just saw the Bag Boy C3 cart for the 1st time.  I think its a great looking cart,  folds easily, not too heavy.  My complaint with the ClicGear is they look/feel like a tank!  I am a big guy too and this feels like I am looking at a 1968 Buick !

The C3 is wide but slimmer looking.  Also the Rovic that ClicGear cobrands is nice as well.  If I were buying today the QUAD and C3 would get a full demo run from me.

I haven't studied the other carts you mention, but I agree that the Clicgear is heavy.  I was concerned with that when I bought mine.  But I theorized (and later validated through use) that the weight only matters the brief moment you pick it up to put it in your car.  While you're using it, it's not the weight that matters but rather how easily it rolls -- and it does really, really well in that regard.  And tank-like stability is a good thing unless you're lifting a tank.

I just saw the Bag Boy C3 cart for the 1st time.  I think its a great looking cart,  folds easily, not too heavy.  My complaint with the ClicGear is they look/feel like a tank!  I am a big guy too and this feels like I am looking at a 1968 Buick !

The C3 is wide but slimmer looking.  Also the Rovic that ClicGear cobrands is nice as well.  If I were buying today the QUAD and C3 would get a full demo run from me.
Carried into my late 40's.....got the Quad middle of last season and will never carry again.

I walked 18 yesterday with my Clicgear 3.0 and attached seat; yeah, you heard me.. I love it and so do others.  I got at least three -wow's and I need to get one of those.  Makes walking nice too, particularly the seat and sun umbrella during slow and sunny rounds, as there's always a place to park me backside in the shade. :)   Its especially easy up hills and mounds and down the backside too, where I typically let it loose.  Its never tipped over either.   Relatively free-rolling with all the conveniences, and minimal weight and trunk space.  Best cart I've owned.

I've been looking into the seat.  It makes so much sense I need to just pull the trigger.  Having a seat while having a beverage in my cup holder with the umbrella up sounds like a slice (pun intended) of heaven..

Clicgear offers a creative cigar holder attachment.  Also an umbrella extender which alllows the umbrella to nearly cover me while on the seat...really nice when seating and leaning back on my bag with a cigar, waiting... which was, at times, the case Sunday.  The two goof balls we played with were all over the place in the cart, and struggled with ready golf, even where to park the cart.  The seat attachment is rather ingenious too; nothing to putting it on/off and weight is nominal.  Works on almost any terrain and stable on cart paths.  My next purchase is the cooler bag.

They have a cooler bag or are you referring to a normal cooler bag?  I'm flying down to the PGA show for a few days and i'm going to talk with the Clicgear guys to see whats on the horizon.

Sorry, been traveling.  Likely too late, but they make a nice functional cooler bag that hangs on the frame.  Hope you have a good time at the PGA Show.

I'm not sure if they still make them, but Bag Boy made a cooler bag that I've used for years on my pushcarts too. Pretty cheap @ $20. Not much to them, but does the job. Someone saw mine and just hung a small fabric type cooler with a strap from their Clicgear as well. I usually get 2 or 3 seasons out of the Bagboy cooler bags before the velcro wears out on the straps. On my 2nd one with another new spare ready for the future. Being diabetic, these are so great for me to bring the food I need.

I have a cheap push cart I bought when I started golfing again this year, well I don't really have a choice as I only have a cart bag haha. But my friends and I will usually ride for 18s. For 9 holes I use my push cart. I'm 28 years old haha, but I do go to the gym 5 times a week and play hockey once or twice a week so it's not a fitness thing more of a conserve energy thing.

Edit: in the near future I'd like to upgrade to a clicgear 3.0/3.5 or so when I see a nice deal.

Spoke to the clicgear guys and saw some cool designs coming out.  Also the cooler bag seems to still be available.  I'm still shopping around for the seat but it looks like it's going to be around $50 no matter where I look.

As I understand, Clicgear quit making the hanging water bag, but still offers the hanging cooler bag.

a light bag and 9 clubs on my 'carry' days.  Not too many course allow walking here, so...............

I have a Sun Mountain Speed cart and it's perfect for walking rounds as well - I use it occassionally.  My knees are starting to give me issues, so the Sun Mountain may see more use.

I am 63 and carry my clubs unless I am required to use a cart. I use one strap since that is what I am used to.
I like the fact that my clubs are always nearby for club selection and it speeds up play as I am not walking extra around greens depending on where I can park a push cart.

I play a hilly course and am considering a push/pull cart though.
