Electric Golf Trolleys – are they worth it?

When playing golf it can be quite hard work to carry about 14 clubs, golf balls, a flask and whatever else you have with you on your back. Golf should be fun and one way to make it easier on yourself, especially as you get older is to look at buying an electric golf trolley. They can even be programmed to followed you around the course.

Before you go out and buy one we want to help you make an informed decision. There are many things you need to look out for before spending you hard earned money, such as, battery life – how long does it take to charge the battery and how long does the battery last? Some trolleys have features such as battery indicators which will help. Also, how heavy is the trolley? If you have a small car, this is something you need to consider.

Speed is also another important factor. You need to be able to control the speed of your trolley. Some come with just a basic one speed motor, where as others have plenty of different speeds. Also, with speed, you need to look at the brakes. You don’t want your trolley running away down a hill (I’ve seen it happen). You can also get remote control trolleys which is great as you can send the trolley ahead in front of you.
