The August 2012 issue of Golf Digest magazine included a Golf Push Cart Hot List.
The story said that the editors’ tested a dozen pushcarts and found seven that stand out. Two of those seven standouts were the Sun Mountain Speed Cart SV1 three-wheeled golf push cart and the four-wheeled Sun Mountain Micro-Cart.
About the Speed Cart SV1 the Golf Digest Equipment Editors said, “We love the roll of the big wheels and the brackets that secure your bag without straps.”
Regarding the four-wheel Micro-Cart the story reads, “This four-wheel pushcart is stable and surprisingly light, and it quickly folds into a compact size.” To put some numbers to these words – Micro-Cart was the lightest golf push cart tested, weighing in at 13.8 lbs. and the cart folds to the miniscule 52 cubic inches.
The article quoted pro golfer Jenny Suh who uses a Sun Mountain golf push cart on the Symetra Tour as saying, “I used to think these were for people with back problems, but even I feel less tired after my round. Playing 36 holes is no problem.”
Joining the Symetra Tour in allowing the use of golf push carts in competition included the IJGT (International Junior Golf Tour), the AJGA (American Junior Golf Association), NCAA Women’s Golf, and High School girls’ golf.
Sun Mountain first introduced the revolutionary three-wheeled golf push cart, Speed Cart®, in 1999 and sales, interest and usage have increased every year since. View the current Sun Mountain golf cart line-up at SunMountain.com
