In 1999 the Sun Mountain Speed Cart started an entirely new segment of golf products, golf push carts, and re-energized the staid pull cart market.
13 years later Sun Mountain golf push carts continue to gain fans as the company keeps coming out with new and innovative carts.
At the recent 2012 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, buyers for golf shops as well as golf journalists were impressed with the 2012 four-wheeled Micro Cart golf push cart and the newest versions of the three-wheeled Speed Cart.
New Speed Cart golf push cart offerings include the sleek new Speed Cart SV1 with powder coated rims and quick release handles as well as the new R3 rental cart.
Sun Mountain Provides Golf Push Cart for World Record Attempt
Sun Mountain is proud to have provided a Speed Cart golf push cart for music industry veteran Jimmy Daniel who is currently embarking on an ambitious journey to break the Guinness World Record for “Most Rounds Of Golf In One Year.” This is a spirited challenge to play and walk most of the 1,000 rounds in 366 straight days (with leap year), but the mission of breaking the world record is secondary to what he is hopeful to accomplish.
Daniel is using this courageous challenge to launch Heart of the Green, a unique, grassroots organization using the game of golf as a platform to raise awareness to reduce deaths from cardiac arrest and heart attacks.
It is the goal of Heart of the Green to take their campaign to 10,000 golf communities, courses and clubs where millions of men and women of all ages, all nationalities, in every demographic, visit every day of the year.
Visit www.heartofthegreen.org for more information and updates throughout the campaign.

Golf Fitness: Improve your health and your golf game; walk the course with Sun Mountain golf push carts
Numerous studies over the years have documented the health benefits of walking the golf course. Now more than ever, people are realizing that one need not sign up for an ‘exercise’ class to get in shape. The golf game itself can indeed be the exercise class.
A recent study on golf fitness found that walking a round of golf offers the same benefits as a step-aerobics class. Another study documents that 2 rounds of golf per week puts one over the 2,500 calories burned per week goal/threshold.
Sun Mountain’s golf products are designed to make walking the course easier today than ever before, allowing you to reap the full health benefits of playing golf. [Read more…]
Micro-Cart™ from Sun Mountain is a new-look, four wheel walking cart that folds 25% smaller and weighs 20% less than leading golf push carts. Tipping the scales at the slight 13 lbs. and folding down to the scant 52 cubic inches, Micro-Cart is a very appropriate name. Its small folded footprint and its light weight make the cart easy to get in and out of a vehicle. Also, due to the patented four-wheel design, this push cart for golf has a low center of gravity which results in superior stability on the course. Micro-Cart comes with no assembly required and folds and unfolds in two easy motions. New for 2011, Micro-Cart comes standard with the E-Z Latch for hassle-free handle height adjustment. Micro-Cart is available now with a full-suggested retail price of $219. For the retailer nearest you, call 800-227-9224 or visit www.sunmountain.com. [Read more…]
