Different Types Of Electric Golf Trolley

Although there are plenty of lightweight golf bags on the market today, an electric golf trolley will really help to save your body from aches and pains.

The best golf trolleys will do all the hard work for you – taking the strain off your arms and legs, and saving your energy so you can finish the round on a high.

But which one should you choose?

Let’s take a closer look at the different options available and the factors you need to consider when purchasing an electric golf trolley.


·        Standard electric golf trolleys

A basic model will use a motor and battery to power it around the golf course with ease. All you need to do is attach your bag to the trolley and navigate it from one hole to the next – exerting a lot less energy than you would if you carried your bag.

Whilst there’s no denying that an electric golf trolley is a big investment, a standard model tends to have fewer features than most modern trolleys, meaning you won’t need to break the bank to enjoy the basic benefits.


·        Remote control electric golf trolleys

If you’re looking for a more convenient alternative for transporting your golf clubs, perhaps one that offers remote control functionality would be better.

Electric golf trolleys that are remote control-operated allow you to control the speed and direction of the trolley with the simple touch of a button. With one of these models, you won’t need to worry about guiding your trolley. Instead, you can comfortably walk alongside it at your own pace.

Admittedly, remote-control golf trolleys are more expensive than their non-remote counterparts – but it’s well worth the expense if you ask us. After all, they take the strain off your muscles and allow you to get the most out of your swing.


·        GPS electric golf trolleys

An electric golf trolley with GPS built-in is perfect for golfers who are obsessed with gadgets.

With embedded GPS, these trolleys provide information on the touchscreen display in real-time and reduce the need for a separate GPS device. They give players a bird’s-eye view of the course, along with accurate yardages.

Important alerts can also be sent to golfers from the clubhouse, offering a cost-effective and efficient solution for two-way communication.

Another great thing about electric golf trolleys with GPS is that they allow you to plan your shots – assessing the data in front of you and choosing your clubs accordingly. 


Which is best for you?

Knowing which electric golf trolley to buy can be overwhelming – especially when there are so many different options available.

To determine whether a standard electric trolley will suffice, or if a remote control or GPS trolley would be more suitable, you need to consider the following factors:

  • Features – Do you want your trolley to have a touchscreen? Do you need a phone, drink, and scorecard holder? Is GPS functionality essential?


Modern trolleys usually have more features than basic-level trolleys. Although these will be more expensive, they make it more convenient for you.


  • Budget – How much can you afford to splurge on an electric golf trolley?


Standard models tend to be the cheapest option, offering fantastic value for money. But if you can afford to spend a little more, a trolley with a remote control or GPS built in will benefit your game.


  • Weight and size – Is space at a premium in your car boot? Not got much room to store your trolley at home?


Opting for an electric golf trolley that can be folded down quickly and conveniently is always a boon. A lightweight model will also make it easier for you to lift in and out of your car so you can get onto the course faster.


  • Battery – How often do you visit the golf course? Do you usually play one or two rounds of golf a day?


Most golf trolleys have an 18-hole or 36-hole lithium battery, as opposed to an older lead-acid battery. These are not only more powerful but also longer-lasting and lighter to transport.
