As more people walk with push carts they keep asking me for recommendations, so I decided to play a few rounds and come up with a great push cart you should use this season. Keep reading to learn about my choice, the Golf Digest Gold Medal winning Trekker Caddy TC3 Freestyle Push Cart.
Trekker Caddy TC3 Freestyle Push Cart
After playing a few rounds with different push carts I decided on a newcomer, the Trekker Caddy TC3 Freestyle Push Cart. Unlike almost all other push carts, the TC3 sits very low to the ground and has an adjustable handle. While this may not sound like a big deal, the flat-bottom frame distributes weight evenly and keeps the cart’s center of gravity much lower than other carts. The result is a much stabler and easier to push cart. The adjustable handle means you can actually be comfortable pushing instead of reaching up or down. After all, the cart should accommodate you, right?
A couple other nice features include the unit’s ability to fold into a tight little package, smaller than comparable carts. Plus you don’t have to remove wheels! The Trekker Caddy TC3 has a brake system with a push-button release conveniently located at the top of the handle, right in the middle. Anybody who’s had to bend down and search for a brake release on a cart frame knows the benefit of being able to flip a switch their thumb to get rolling again! The wheels are injection molded so they’re sturdy, quiet and lightweight, and the ball bearings they rotate on are sealed — so bad weather and nasty course conditions won’t ruin your ride.

The 2010 golf season is already getting into full swing in parts of the country, and before too long the links will be packed with golfers eager to get back into the swing of things. Don’t be left behind with old gear that hurts your scores! Walking with a push cart allows you to see the course up close and personal, to feel the slopes and see the spots that will hurt or help — not to mention give you a good workout (you don’t get warm, loose muscles by riding a powered cart!). Plus, walking gives you time to analyze your performance, walk off frustrations and spend time talking with friends.
The Trekker Caddy TC3 Push Cart is a great choice for any golfer looking for a foldable, lightweight push cart that offers a stable, cushy ride. So the next time you head out opt for the TC3 Push Cart instead of those loud, expensive powered carts. You’ll be glad you went with Trekker Caddy. I am.
