If you’re the type of golfer who walks the course with a cart, you’re going to want one of the best golf bags for push carts on the market. You’ll see the benefits as soon as you switch from your old stand-up bag one made for push carts.
That’s because golf bags made for electric and manual push carts use specially designed bottoms to stand upright so you get a secure and snug fit. With a stand-up bag, they often don’t fit well because of their shape.
That’s why I put together this definitive list of the best of the best golf bags you can attach to a push cart (electric or manual) because golfers who use the best gear for the job often have the most fun.
Let’s check out some golf bags.
Table of Contents: Best Golf Bags for Push Carts
- Best Overall Push Cart Option
- Ultra-Lightweight Pick
- Callaway Quality and Style
- For the TaylorMade Folks
- Titleist Golf Bag for Push Carts
- Full-Featured and Inexpensive
- Highly Rated Value Option
- Won’t Break the Bank

Best Overall Push Cart Option
Brand new for 2023 and made specifically for push carts, the Sun Mountain Sync ranks as my number one option in this category of golf bags. When you look at these key features, you’ll quickly see why.
- It’s relatively lightweight at only seven pounds
- Forward-facing pockets keep your gear easy to reach
- A pass-through strap makes securing the golf bag a breeze
- Great design limits side-to-side movement
- Comes with a rain hood
- Cart bumpers keep your bag in one piece
Plus, with 14 full-length individual club dividers and a built-in cooler, you can easily pull a standard-length club (or longer) out of your bag without it snagging. Plus, a beverage will always be at hand. And with 6 different colorways to choose from, you can find your favorite.
For the golfer who wants an even lighter bag than our best overall pick, be sure to check out Cobra’s fantastically lightweight Pro cart bag. Weighing in at only five pounds, pushing all your clubs and gear from hole to hole shouldn’t be a problem.
But, that’s not the only good news when you go with this great-looking bag from Cobra. You’ll also get:
- 11 pockets including a dedicated magnetic velour-lined pocket for your fancy rangefinder
- A large insulated cooler fits nine cans of deliciousness
- 14-way top with three full-length dividers
- A Built-in passthrough keeps the bag secure and pockets easy to access
- Front-facing pockets for easy access to your stuff
- 8 great color options
Now, unlike the Sync from Sun Mountain, this bag only comes with three full-length dividers. For me, I like to keep my clubs separated, but if you’re the type who prefers a lightweight bag that’s very easy to move around this Cobra bag might be your best bet.
And if don’t mind adding a few ounces, Cobra makes an excellent waterproof bag as well.
Callaway Quality and Style
I’ll be honest, when making this list of the best golf bags for push carts I had a heck of a time deciding between the Sun Mountain Sync and this 2022 Org 14 from Callaway.
Callaway’s bag has a number of excellent features that really made the decision difficult. But, if you’re a Callaway fan, I think the choice will be an easy one for you. Let’s see why.
- The arched top makes club retrieval easy
- Full-length dividers to maximum organization
- It only weighs six pounds
- Pass through channel for easy cart attachment
- Push-cart-specific hooks and loops secure the bag and keep it from shifting
- Separate putter well
- Easy-to-access forward-facing pockets
Ultimately, when making your choice for the best bag for you, you can’t go wrong with this Org 14. It’s durable, well-made, and looks amazing in any of the 10 color choices Callaway offers (with red camo looking arguably the best of them all).
Plus, it’s even a pound lighter than Sun Mountain’s offering.
If you love your Callaway clubs, or just want a superb bag that’s equally at home on a push cart or golf cart, be sure to take a good hard look at Callaway’s Org 14.
For the TaylorMade Folks
Just like some of y’all are into Callaway, I’m sure a fair number of you find yourselves rockin’ TaylorMade gear. Lucky for you, the fine folks over at TaylorMade created the fantastic Select ST Cart bag back in 2021.
I think it makes an excellent golf bag for push carts, and I think you will too when you consider all the cool features this bag includes like:
- 15 club slots (non-full-length dividers)
- A standalone putter well
- Water-resistant pocket for valuables
- An Insulated beverage cooler
- Large front-facing pockets
- An included rain hood
Unlike some of the other bags on this list including the Callaway and Sun Mountain bags, you’re not getting quite as many pockets. And of those pockets, they could offer better ways to organize your gear.
That said, if the pocket situation doesn’t bother you or you don’t need full-length dividers, this lightweight option from TaylorMade looks great, costs a little less than some competitors, and is built to last.
Titleist Golf Bag for Push Carts
While this bag appears to be made more for golf cart users than push cart golfers due to its symmetrical design that works on either side of a golf cart, its lightweight design (weighing in at a scant 5.6 pounds) ensures that even those who prefer to walk won’t get weighed down by this bag.
Aside from its weight, the Cart 14 has great features that made this one of the best options for golfers when it comes to their push cart bag of choice. Let’s take a look.
- 14 full-length club dividers
- 10 pockets
- A Removable ball pocket
- Integrated beverage pocket
- Two velcro patches for your gloves
All in all, this push cart golf bag comes with just about everything you need to bring all your gear with you on the course in style. Plus, with a large putter well, you won’t have to fight your clubs when it’s time to putt.
And for those who want even more features in a slightly larger, heavier, and waterproof option, the StaDry 15 is excellent.
Full-Featured and Inexpensive
You don’t need to spend over $200 dollars to get one of the best options on this list. The Founders Club Franklin proves my point.
What makes this affordable bag so awesome? I’m glad you asked. It includes:
- 15 full-length club dividers and a dedicated putter tube
- 15 total pockets including one for beverages and valuables
- A full-length rain cover keeps your gear dry
- A lightweight design weighing only 5.5 pounds
- 5 different handles make moving the bag easy
- It’s Made in the USA
If you’re in the market for an excellent bag that’s full-featured and well-priced, I don’t think you can do much better than the Franklin from Founders Club.
It’s truly one of my favorite bags on this list for an unbelievable price.
Highly Rated Value Option
Like the Franklin listed directly above this Cleveland pick, you don’t need to spend a ton of money to get a ton of value. With their Golf Cart bag, Cleveland proves that you can get a nice golf bag for push carts (and golf carts too) at a fair price.
If you don’t believe me, take a look at the following features and see why this particular bag made the cut.
- 14 club dividers (non-full length)
- Seven handles for easy loading and unloading
- 12 pockets including an insulated bottle pocket
- Waterproof zippers for valuables
- Durable polyester construction
- Five color choices to pick from
Now, unlike the Franklin, this bag doesn’t throw the entire kitchen sink at you nor is it as light. But, it features an extremely good-looking yet understated style and relatively low weight.
As one of my favorite golf bags for the money on this list, you can do a lot worse than what Cleveland cooked up with this no-frills option that pairs great with Cleveland clubs.
Won’t Break the Bank
What do you do when you want all the storage in the world but don’t want to pay a pretty penny? Well, you look on Amazon for one of the best golf bags for push carts that you can find at a discount. And, if you’re like me, you’ll find this Henoty option that not only looks good, but it features ample storage.
So, what do you get with this push cart bag?
- 14 full-length club dividers
- 11 pockets for everything from shoes to valuables
- An easy-to-grab top cuff
- An included rain cover
- A sturdy base for mounting your bag on the cart
Now, as you’ve already heard before, “You get what you pay for.” This bag weighs a few pounds more than others on this list, and it doesn’t come in a variety of colors.
But, if you’re okay with shouldering a few more pounds and you like the color offered here, this bag will hold all your stuff and then some.
For a good bag at a great price, Henoty delivers the goods.
Best Bang for the Buck Available
Those looking to save some money on a golf bag for their push cart setup would be wise to take a good look at Izzo’s entry to our best-of list. With an attractive price tag often sitting below a Benjamin, you sure get a lot for the money.
Let’s take a gander at what to expect when you pull the trigger on this bag.
- Super lightweight at only 3.8 pounds
- Easy-to-grab handle makes pulling the bag in and out of your trunk easy
- 14-way top, but not full-length dividers
- Six total pockets including valuables pocket
- Relatively durable — made with 4200 polyester fabric
Of course, you’re not getting the best bag on the market here, but if you’re an occasional golfer who wants to save some money, the Izzo offers a lot of value for the money. Plus, it comes in five colors to help match your gear.
Just be aware, the bottom is made of a slick material that likely won’t stand up on its own. But, this is a push cart or golf bag, so just secure it down and you’ll have no problems.
Choosing a bag that works well with your style of golf, which in this case is walking the course with an electric or manual push cart, means taking into account several key considerations. Let’s take a look at the seven most important, in no particular order.
Make sure the bag is specifically designed for push cart use. Look for features such as a cart strap channel or cart bumpers to ensure a secure fit. Many of the bags mentioned here are designed to decrease side-to-side roll in push carts, so your bag always sits tight.
Size and Weight
Consider the size and weight of the bag. A lightweight bag will be easier to maneuver on a push cart, but may not have as many pockets or storage options.
Make sure you get a bag that can hold all your gear, and if you golf in an area prone to rain, having a spot to fit your rain gear makes a lot of sense. Plus, a convenient area to clip on your golf cart Bluetooth speaker is always a fun idea, too.
Pockets and Storage
Look for a bag that has enough pockets and storage for your needs. This could include a cooler pocket for drinks, a valuables pocket for your phone and wallet, and multiple pockets for your golf balls, tees, and other accessories. And using a golf beer sleeve is pretty cool too, as long as your bag will fit it.
Plus, many bags make use of large apparel pockets, so you can keep all your golf gear with you and at hand should inclement weather make an appearance on the course.
Choose a bag that is made of high-quality materials and is built to last. Look for features such as reinforced straps, sturdy zippers, and water-resistant fabric to ensure the bag can withstand the wear and tear of being used on a push cart.
Research different brands and read reviews from other golfers to get an idea of the quality and durability of different bags. Or, a good place to look for great advice can be found in the reviews sections of Amazon products reviews. But, you already knew that.
A good golf bag for push cart can range from cheap to expensive, so consider your budget and the features you need before making a purchase. The more expensive bags you’ll find often come with features like waterproofing to keep your gear dry.
Color and Style
Golf bags are available in different colors and styles so you can choose the one you’ll be proud to show off on the course.
Overall, to me, the best golf bag for a push cart is one that has push cart compatibility, is lightweight, features enough pockets and storage, is durable, and fits within your budget. Be sure to consider all of these factors when making your purchase.
Hopefully, when you consider all these factors you’ll find a bag that lasts for rounds and rounds to come.
There you have it, the best golf bags for push carts you can find in 2023. But, because this post has some bags made in 2022, 2021, and earlier, I’ll be sure to update it as those new bags come onto the market.
As always, thanks for checking me out at Golf Gear Club, and I can’t wait to see what’s next in the exciting world of golf gear.
