Should you carry your bag, push a cart, or ride in a cart?

The current issue of Golf Today NW includes an interesting article from Dr. Harry G. Sese answering the question should I ride, carry, or push.

Dr. Sese recommends that for anyone suffering from a health condition that doesn’t allow them to elevate their heart rate, but allows them to continue to play golf, riding a cart is the best option.

If you’re a rider, then you need to be sure your gear matches with a riding cart. By ensuring that you have a sturdy, yet lightweight cart bag, (like Sun Mountain’s C-130 best-selling golf cart bag) you’ll be allowing yourself the peace of mind to know that you won’t be struggling to get your bag to the cart or from the cart to the car after a long round of golf.

Dr. Sese continues by saying that if you’re relying on a round of golf for your exercise, riding is not the way to go. He recommends instead that you walk and carry your clubs or use a golf push cart. The push cart is considered by Dr. Sese to be safer than carrying your bag, for those with neck, shoulder, and back pains.

Plugged-In Golf H2NO Review

The folks at Plugged-In Golf conducted a VERY thorough test of the Sun Mountain H2NO waterproof golf bag.


(We do not suggest you try this at home. These are trained professionals on a closed track.)

And we passed …. with flying colors!

The review covers ‘style’, ‘quality’, and ‘design & performance’ and concludes with a video of a waterproof test no golf bag should have to live through. I mean, come on, do you know how much more fine and how much more pressure is behind a hose from 12” than from a rain storm? This test is like running the bag through a hurricane. And then he dumps the whole bag in a pool! We did not design the H2NO to withstand a temper-induced throw into the water hazard. But, alas, the bag passed the test. Whew! [Read more…]

WRX ClubGlider

wrx clubgliderwrx logoRonald Montesano from Golf WRX took our ClubGlider Meridian golf travel bag for a trial run and rated it 4.7 out of 5 for a score of “Fantastic”.

Here’s a summary of what he had to say:

Pros: Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider Meridian is the only golf travel bag that comes equipped with four wheels — one pair with retractable legs — that hold 100 percent of the weight. That provides stability and convenience while transporting clubs through airports, hotels and parking lots.

Cons: With an MSRP of $289, it resides in the higher price range of travel bags.

Bottom Line: The ClubGlider travel bag from Sun Mountain makes traveling easier with a set of added wheels and retractable legs, keeps clubs safe with thick foam padding on the interior and protects against wear with reinforced vinyl on the bottom of the bag. There’s plenty of value here.

For 2014, ClubGlider golf travel bags are available in four different models – Pro, Meridian, Journey and the new Tour Series – offering protection for golfers ranging from weekend warriors to touring professionals. Retail prices are $349, $289, $219, and $319 respectively.
