I recently bought a GoKart which I have been very happy with it. Up until now I have been using my Sun Mountain carry bag on it. Due to the pronounced foot on the bag I have had to put it on its side and this has worked ok. The only downside is that clubs get tangled as there are only 6 slots and they all fall to the ends of the slots.

I have just bought some new irons and when I collected them today I was looking at the pro shops cart bags. They had some very nice onces but every cart bag had a slot in the bottom designed to sit on the trolleys base arm (is that the right term?). This slot was slightly smaller than the arm on the GoKart so just didn't sit very well. He had bags from quite a few manufacturers and all were the same. In the end I didn't get one.

I had also been looking at GoKarts bag but reluctant to order one without seeing it in the flesh.

It might be possible to make some kind of adapter block to attach to the GoKart. I am going to pop into a few other local pro shops to see if it is possible to get a bag with a flat base.

Are cart bags with slots now a common thing?

I have a GolfKart mk1 and a Motocaddy cart bag with the slot. The slot fits perfectly on the trolley, stops the bag twisting.

I wonder if Motocaddy have altered the size of the slot on their bags?

If you didn't test a Motocaddy then try to find a shop that has them.

I have a Druids waterproof cart bag which fits on my GoKart no problem.

Decent price as well and if you bide your time you'll probably get it even cheaper in one of their endless promotions.

I would recommend the title it’s staydry staff style cart bag. The pocket at the back is amazing. Basically any waterproof bag is better than a normal one though.

A mate has a Ram waterproof cart/trolley bag. Sits on his GoKart perfectly. Seems like fairly good quality, 100% waterproof, and a good price if you look araound.

I have a GoKart Golf Bag for my GoKart trolley. Obviously fits the trolley peerfectly, is well made with plenty of pockets. If you're buying a new bag for your GoKart trolley I'd definitely recommend their own

Having looked at a few bags it was apparent that most do have a slot. In the end I opted for the motocaddy club bag as it seemed good value for money. Then set about designing the adapter

I will use some 3m vhb pads to stick it to the adapter to the trolley rather than drill the trolley.
finally one showing how the adapter sits in the slot

Overall I am very pleased with how it has turned out and it should also stop the bag twisting.

You should sell that idea, or start selling them yourself. 🤑

Not really worth it tbh. Happy to share the stl file with anyone that wants to print their own. Would also print and post for a reasonable cost if anyone wants one.

I did seriously contemplate getting their own bag as I know their equipment is well made and backed by great customer service. It was purely that there were other bags that I preferred the styling of. Something that is very subjective I know

Used the new bag on the trolley for the first time yesterday. Worked really well. However noticed that the zip on the water bottle pocket has already fouled on the piping behind the zip and ripped it apart. FFS. I only opened it a couple of times and was gentle so I reckon it was like this when I bought it. Not a good sign.
Will be calling the shop tomorrow and taking it back :) Doesn’t give me a lot of confidence. My sun mountain carry bag as been great.

Same here. To be honest with the GoKart quality I'm unsure why you'd not want to purchase their own product
That assumes the trolley is bought first, the bag second. In my case I already had a bag, then bought my GoKart.

The other point is that you can not go into a shop and view the bag, see what is feels like, open the zips etc. You take a leap of faith to an extent with a GoKart bag when you can check out pretty much any other brand in situ.

OK I had druids too, and sold it as the slot was too narrow, last year's bag and last year's current model trolley
