The Best Electric Golf Trolley of 2020
What’s not to love about electric golf trolleys?
They do all the hard work for you – taking the pressure and stress off your legs and shoulders, preserving your energy for the last few holes so you can finish on a high. They are now sleeker, shinier and lighter than ever before, and packed full of technology. Some can even be connected to your phone and provide on-screen GPS information. But how do you know which to choose?
The best electric golf trolley for you will depend on:
- your budget
- the features you need
- how worried you are about the weight and size of the trolley
- the type of battery
Here we look at 5 of the best electric golf trolleys on the market in 2020:
A must-have for golfers who want the smartest technology but don’t have all the space in the world to store an electric trolley.
The Motocaddy M5 GPS is a revelation. A sleek piece of kit that folds away neatly when it’s not in use.
It has a high-resolution touchscreen display that shows the time, yardages and track scores, managed via the free Motocaddy smartphone app and can be controlled in all weathers – even if you’re wearing a glove! Once your trolley is synced to the app, you needn’t worry about missing notifications (i.e. calls, texts, emails, messenger alerts, etc.) again.
Another great thing about the M5 electric trolley is that it comes with a USB port. So, you can easily plug your phone in and charge it up while you play. Now, that’s convenient.
The all-new FX series from PowaKaddy replaces the immensely popular Freeway family – and, we’d say, the FX7 is right up there with the best electric golf trolleys of 2020.
As with all PowaKaddy models, this one has a whisper-quiet motor, anti-tamper dial control to prevent you from accidentally turning the trolley on, and a chassis which is 20% smaller than before.
The stunning 3.5” full colour touchscreen delivers fast and accurate distances to the back, front and middle of the green – thanks to an integrated GPS – not forgetting hazards on over 40,000 courses. The FX7 also includes a scorecard function, so no more rummaging around for pencils.
The PowaKaddy GPS Bluetooth app, for both iOS and Android, allows you to carry out course updates on-the-go from the simple touch of a button on your smartphone.
Not everyone wants an all-singing, all-dancing electric trolley, and that’s where the Motocaddy S1 comes in. The Motocaddy S1 is one of – if not – the easiest trolleys to use.
The QuickFold mechanism allows the trolley to be ready-to-use in just seconds – and if you have a Motocaddy bag fitted with the Easilock base, it just clips in without having to fiddle or fasten straps. It’s as easy as that.
Although not as many as other trolleys, the S1 has some brilliant features, including:
- a soft-touch, ergonomic handle for easy manoeuvrability
- a powerful 200W motor which operates quietly
- anti-glare LCD screen
- 9-speed settings
- Adjustable Distance Control (ADC) in 15, 30 and 45-yard increments
One of the best things about the Motocaddy S1 is that you can charge the battery without removing it from the trolley.
New for 2020, the PowaKaddy CT6 benefits from a stylish, gunmetal frame that weighs a tiny 9.8kg. That’s 5% lighter than the previous compact model! It has both an integrated carry handle for effortless transportation and soft-touch handle which can be adjusted to the perfect height for the user.
The CT6 also has a low-profile chassis and can be folded down 20% smaller than other models, so will fit in the smallest of car boots. Another bonus of this electric trolley is that the wheels are inverted – meaning it takes up even less space when stored.
Ok, so the M-Tech is the most expensive electric golf trolley on the market in 2020, but it certainly gets the thumbs up from us, here at Clarkes Golf Centre.
It comes packed with plenty of high-specification luxury finishes and features, including leather handle grips, polished chrome detailing, eye-catching wheels with bespoke all-terrain treads, and a high-capacity lithium battery. It’s also super-lightweight and has a downhill brake which ensures maximum safety on the slopes. So, well worth the expense!
The great news is, the Motocaddy M-Tech electric golf trolley is currently on sale at Clarkes Golf and can be purchased at a reduced price of £999.00. That’s a huge £200 saving! What’s more, we’ll even throw in a complimentary Motocaddy M Series golf travel cover (worth £34.99) and a Motocaddy golf umbrella holder (worth £22.95). And standard delivery is free when you spend over £30, however, you can upgrade to next day or Saturday delivery at the checkout for an extra fee if you need your trolley sooner.
Although these – in our opinion – are the best electric golf trolleys in 2020, there are many other different models to choose from.
