Not renting a ride on golf cart for your rounds? Congratulations, you are getting some good exercise. Not everyone thinks so but golf can be a great exercise. Walking along a beautifully manicured course on a gorgeous morning or afternoon for 18 holes can really burn some calories.

But there is a thin line between good exercise and simply wrecking your body. push carts are a great alternative to carrying you bag if you want to carry additional gear or simply save your back. They allow you to enjoy the scenery without having to lug a bag around.

Still, not all golf bags were meant to be loaded onto a push cart. So in today’s review, we thought we’d reward all you weekend warriors who choose to hoof it over riding in a golf cart. Today we are going to be looking at some of the best golf bags specifically for push carts.

Now you may not think a list like the one to follow is necessary. All golf bags are pretty much the same, right? Not even close. Just like the gear you choose to play with, your golf bag should suit your specific needs and style of play.

For instance, you may just be starting out with the game and really only play 4 or 5 clubs. In that case, why pay a bunch for a bag with a 14-way splitter top when a 5-hole top would do you better?

So in the following review, we went out of our way to try to represent a full cross-section of different kinds of players and playing needs. The bags on the following list represent value, convenience and variety.

We have tested a lot of bags in our day and we know how difficult a seemingly simple task like finding the right golf bag can be. So without further ado, here is our list of the best golf club bags for push carts.

1. Sun Mountain C-130 Cart Bag (Best Choice)

Whose It For?

This is one of the more understated bags on our list. Clean, elegant, masculine and classic. And despite the leathery look of this bag, it is surprisingly lightweight.

We tested this bag (as with all the following entries on our list) for a full round of golf and it was easy to load and unload into our push carts – yes we all brought our favorite push carts. When you want to throw it over your shoulder, it has a single padded strap too.

Storage

As far as storage space goes, we would say this bag is for intermediate to advanced players who intend to use their full arsenal of clubs. It has a 14-way top for all your clubs. The top is made of cloth but still holds all clubs snugly in place.

There are also a total of ten pockets on this thing including two oversized apparel pockets that flank either side of the bag, an insulated cooler pocket for beverages and a couple velour lined pockets for your delicate items.

Overall

And as we touched on at the top of this review for Sun Mountain C-130, the design is basic yet classic at the same time. It comes in black, navy blue and light blue. We used the black bag and really, clean is the best adjective to describe it.

All in all, we would say this bag would fit the needs of someone who is fairly serious about their game but aren’t too much into the bells and whistles that can detract from the aesthetic appeal and balance of other bags.

Pros:

  • Rain hood included
  • Velcro straps conveniently lock firmly onto your pushcart
  • Easily accommodates full sized grips

Cons:

  • The drain hole for the cooler pocket is placed inconveniently
  • Not a stand bag

Overall Rating: 96/100

2. Titleist Golf- Jet Black Collection Tour Cart Bag (Best Premium)

Whose It For?

Our first impression of this Titleist bag? Well, it was that we’d seen it on TV being carried by the caddies of the top tour pros in the game.

This bag bears a striking design that smacks of quality. Would you expect anything less from Titleist? Now this bag weighs about how much it looks like it weighs. On its own it’s a little over 10 pounds. But when you feel the material it’s made of, you will know why.

Storage

Real metal hardware accents this Titleist bag and it is flanked by durable, leather-like materials for all the pockets. The top 5-way divider is made of durable, hard plastic and lined with a soft velvet material.

There are 10 storage pockets including magnetic accessory pockets with velour lining. And even the large apparel pockets have sub-dividers in them for maximum organization!

Overall

This bag is definitely for the golfer who uses a cart every time they play and want to make an impression on the course. This will likely be the last golf bag you will need so it’s a great investment overall.

Pros:

  • This bag will last for decades
  • Looks great on and off the course
  • Made of premium materials

Cons:

  • Only a 5-way divider
  • Definitely on the expensive side

3. PROSiMMON Tour 14 Way Cart Golf Bag (Best Budget)

Who Is It For?

If you are looking for a steal of a golf bag then this is probably your best choice. Of course, the first thing that stuck out to us about this bag is the external putter slot.

That’s right, we said external putter slot. If you have an oversized putter head that you don’t want clanking around against your other clubs, this slot will safely and conveniently hold your putter on the outside of the bag away from the other heads.

This PROSiMMON bag is well-designed, made of mostly nylon-type material. The 14-way top club divider has heavy nylon reinforcements and there is plenty of room for storage. It includes a cooler pouch, a deep ball pouch and zippered pouches for all your accessories.

There is even a towel ring and a Velcro glove holder. But we think the feature that makes this bag a great value is the weight of the thing. On its own it weighs a paltry 5 pounds. So it’s very easy to push around in your push cart and load into your trunk at the end of the day.

Overall

Being the best budget entry on our list, this bag would probably be more suitable for beginners. It doesn’t have some of the more advanced features as some of the other bags on our list but it will definitely give you what you need as you begin to learn the game.

Pros:

  • Comes in 4 colors (green, blue, black, red)
  • Includes an umbrella slot
  • Plenty of storage

Cons:

  • The nylon frays easily
  • The zippers get stuck

Overall Rating: 91/100

4. Founders Club Premium Cart Bag with 14 Way Organizer Divider Top

Whose Is It For

Now, right out of the box, this Founders Club cart bag distinguishes itself by merit of its design. You can tell right away that the 14-way top club divider is different.

Features

Club Dividers

Price

Storage

While it’s not as light as the lightest bag on our list, it certainly isn’t as heavy as the heaviest. Even with its 9 zippered pockets which include a fur-lined (that’s right fur-lined) valuables pocket and a cooler pocket, this is a surprisingly lightweight bag.

Overall

Instead of being made of nylon or some other soft material, the top divider is made of molded rubber. And on the course, this is a distinct advantage because it holds your clubs firmer so there is less clanging of club heads and fewer disturbances on the course.

The rubberized divider also holds your clubs firmly so you don’t have to worry about them falling out no matter how steep the terrain is. And somehow, with the rubber divider, they were able to keep the weight of this bag surprisingly low.

Pros:

  • Surprisingly affordable
  • Comes in a variety of colors
  • Comes with a 12-month warranty

Cons:

  • Will not fit jumbo grips
  • Won’t fit some Tall clubs

5. Callaway Golf 2020 ORG 14 Cart Bag

Who Is It For?

Right out of the box, this bag struck us as having the same simple, clean and classic look that the Sun Mountain bag had that started our list. We went with the black bag (yes I know, we’re boring) and it looked great.

Features

Club Dividers

On the course, you can tell how thoughtfully designed this Callaway bag really is. The 14-way top divider made our irons sit perfectly flush. The separate putter slot has an insert at the bottom for fitting larger grips while preventing them from rubbing up against the lining.

Really great club divider design overall. There is even a front-facing pocket specifically for rangefinders. There are 8 more zippered pockets including a large apparel pocket on the side, onto which the handsome Callaway logo is neatly embroidered.

Overall

The Callaway Golf 2020 bag features a hard rubber bottom which belies its own 6 pound weight.

Pros:

  • 2 integrated handles on the top divider
  • Includes rain hood
  • Golf towel carabiner included

Cons:

  • Doesn’t sit firmly on some push carts
  • Glove attachment is kind of flimsy

Overall Rating: 96/100

6. Cobra Golf 2020 Ultralight Cart Bag

Who Is It For?

Cobra makes our list with their latest offering into their burgeoning catalog of high-quality golf club bags. This is a surprisingly lightweight bag (just 5.3 pounds) when you consider how much storage space is packed into it.

Storage

First of all, you get the obligatory 14-way top divider for all of your clubs. But it’s not just about club quantity with this bag. The slot for the putter is actually slanted downward so that it doesn’t bang into the club heads around it – making this bag great for rough terrain.

Secondly, there are a total of 13 (yes, we said 13) storage pockets including an ample cooler pouch that can handle more than a 6-pack of your favorite beverage. There is an oversized apparel pocket on the side perfect for jackets or even a pair of shoes.

There are a couple fleece-lined pockets as well so you can store your watch, phone or any other delicate valuable. Lastly, there is a slot that you can slide an umbrella into snugly – we’re serious, this thing holds onto umbrella stands really well.

8. OGIO ALPHA Convoy 514 Golf Cart Bag

Who Is It For?

This bag sort of reminded us of a rifle bag out of the box but as we played with it on the course, we were impressed with the unique innovations that OGIO put into it.

Features

Club Dividers

14

Pockets

10

Carry Strap

Yes (Single Wide)

Weight

Waterproof

No

Price

$222.47

Overall

One of the more understated yet convenient features of this bag is that many of the enclosures (the towel loop, and other clips) are magnetic so you don’t have to fumble around trying to look for where a button snap or Velcro strap is.

This bag is also made of a material that looks like nylon but on closer inspection, you can tell it is something much more durable. Apparently, it’s called Cordura fabric and it is very durable. This is the sort of bag that you can take for a round of golf in an active battle zone.

Storage

And in case you were wondering, Curdura is lightweight. The entire bag when empty weighs only 6.4 pounds. But there is still plenty of storage. There is a 14-way divider top for all your clubs and a total of 10 zippered pockets.

The insulated cooler pocket continues the innovative ways of this bag – for once, someone made a bag with a cooler pouch that drains clear of the bag itself. There is also a fleece-lined valuables pouch.

Pros:

  • Comes in a variety of colors
  • Lightweight
  • Comes with rain hood

Cons:

  • Doesn’t fit snugly in some smaller push carts
  • There is just one shoulder strap

8. Datrek DG Lite II Cart Bag

Who Is It For ?

Thought we weren’t going to include a 15-way top divider bag for all of you ultra-low handicappers out there? Think again. The Datrek DG Lite is the best golf bag for you if you want to take all your clubs out on your push cart.

Features

Club Dividers

Price

$159.95

Storage

This bag has a 15-way divider top design with 3 soft grip handles. This was a very easy bag to get in and out of the trunk and onto the cart because, just as the name implies, it is a lightweight bag. In fact, it is the lightest golf bag on our list weighing in at just 4.2 pounds!

So if they aren’t skimping on club storage space, surely they have to hold out on item storage space, right? Well, yes and no. While there are only 7 zippered storage pockets, they are still pretty big.

There are 2 very large apparel storage pouches on either side of this bag and a ball pouch that will surely fit all your balls no matter how many you sink into water traps. There is even an oversized cooler pouch that is second in size only to the Cobra bag mentioned earlier on our list.

Pros And Cons

Pros:

  • Very large storage pockets
  • Very lightweight design
  • Comes in a very cool grey and red digital camo color

Cons:

  • Not the best bag if you prefer fine-tuned organization
  • The material is not the most durable

9. Ram Golf FX Deluxe Golf Cart Bag

Who Is It For?

The penultimate entry on our list is one of the most affordable bags featured here, but that does not make it the cheapest. This is a very thoughtfully designed golf club bag that was made specifically for push carts.

Features

Club Dividers

Weight

No

Price

$124.99

Storage

One of the things we like most about this bag is that all the pouches (of which there are 10) are 100% accessible from the front. And if you have ever used a bag that wasn’t designed for a push cart on a push cart, you know why this is important.

The Ram Golf FX Deluxe fit conveniently and securely on all of our push carts and we could grab everything we needed from the pouches without having to fidget with the bag in the cart.

Speaking of pouches, there are 2 large apparel pockets on the sides, an insulated cooler pouch and 2 thoughtful waterproof pockets. There is also a Velcro strap specifically for securing to push carts.

Overall

The whole bag on its own weighs about 6 pounds even though it sports a 14-way top club divider. There is also an umbrella holder and towel clip.

Pros:

  • Very affordable golf club bag
  • Reinforced molded rubber bottom
  • Very well designed for push cart use specifically

Cons:

  • When you have a handful of balls in the ball pouch, it makes it hard to pull out/put in your putter. They are placed too close to each other.
  • Only comes in one color (black)

10. EG EAGOLE 14 Way Divider Top Premium Golf Cart Bag

Who Is It For?

Do you remember the Founder’s Club bag we included a few entries ago? It was number 4 on our list and it shares something in common with our last entry here: the 14-way top divider is made of molded rubber.

Features

Price

Overall

Once again, the advantage to this feature is that it holds all clubs in place exceptionally well. So if you have a wobbly cart or are going over some particularly tough terrain, this EG bag will still keep all your clubs firmly in place.

Storage

There are a total of 10 storage pouches too. There is a very ample insulated cooler pouch for beverages and snacks, a couple of large apparel bags mounted to either side of the bag, and an abundance of smaller storage pockets for balls, tees accessories and personal effects.

All the pockets are secured with zippers. There is also a convenient cart strap for both motorized carts and push carts. The bottom is reinforced with molded rubber so that it stands up on its own when you take it off the cart.

While the aesthetic design of this bag is nothing to write home about, it is very well-balanced overall. There is a padded back strap for when you need to lug it on your back and a towel ring hanging from the top/side end of the bag.

If you are looking for a bargain bag that has some of the same features as more expensive and advanced bags, this would be a great choice for you.

Pros:

  • This is a very affordable bag
  • Securely holds all clubs even ones with jumbo grips
  • Comes in your choice of either blue, orange or red

Cons:

  • The zippers get stuck easily
  • The umbrella string can’t hold too much weight reliably
