When looking for the best top rated golf carts we will start with the oldest or most basic type first, the pull cart which is the least expensive. Then we will look at some popular push cart models, and then some even more advanced remote controlled or auto-folding golf carts. The last types of golf carts to look at, and the most expensive are the gas or electric carts that you see at the golf course, where you can ride along with your golf bag instead of pushing or pulling it across the golf course.
One thing you will want to know before we look at the different choices in golf carts is the difference between the pull cart and the push cart. The pull cart has two wheels and the push cart has either three wheels or four. Most golfers don’t use a pull cart since the advancement of the push cart, or sometimes referred to as the push/pull cart that can be used either way. The push/pull cart is much more stable and easy to use instead of the pull cart and has more features.
The Best Pull Golf Carts To Buy ( 2 Wheel )
The best pull carts to choose from range in price from about $30-50. Basic two wheeled pull carts don’t have many features but they are lightweight.

The Best Push Golf Carts To Buy ( 3 and 4 Wheel )
You can find some three wheel push carts starting out at about $40, they are pretty much the same as the two wheeled carts, except for the extra wheel that adds more stability. The price goes up from there to about $300. I will start with a couple of basic three wheel carts that have more features than the two wheel carts, then progress to the more expensive four wheel carts with the most features. Here are a few three wheel carts: (1) Tangkula Folding Golf Cart 3 Wheels Lightweight Golf Club Push Pull Cart Trolley – all the basic features plus storage compartment and mesh net to put personal items in, umbrella and cup holders, price $63.

(4) Stewart Golf X9 Follow Cart – hands free operation, cart follows you on the course with the latest Bluetooth technology and also has remote for manual operation, rechargeable lithium battery, price $3,000.
The Best Gas Or Electric Golf Carts
Both Gas and Electric carts are pretty close in price from most manufacturers. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types. Gas golf carts have more horsepower and get about 150 miles on a tank of gas. Electric golf carts have less horsepower and have to be fully charged to get about two hours of continuous run time.
The top three manufacturers of golf carts are: E-Z-Go, Yamaha, and Ingersol Rand (Club Car). Gas and electric carts seem to range in price from about $3,000-15,000 unless you get them discounted or used. I would just suggest buying one of the top three major brands for quality, at a discount price if possible.
Buy The Cart That Suits Your Needs
Most people looking for golf carts would get a push golf cart because of the additional three or four wheel design for stability and easier use. They usually have more features than a basic pull cart too, like extra storage for personal items and places to mount things like an umbrella or seat.
I guess if you have the money for it you could get one of the remote control carts to make things easier, so that you can still get the benefit of walking for the exercise without pushing or pulling the cart around. If it’s too hard for you to get around the golf course physically then you will definitely need a gas or electric golf cart if it’s in the budget.
