Best Electric Golf Trolleys 2020

The best electric golf trolleys can do all the hard work for you, taking the stress off the legs or shoulders and preserving energy for the last few holes so you can finish your rounds strongly. For our gadget-obsessed generation, they now connect to phones and provide GPS information on the screen. Some can be controlled by a handset while others will even follow you around the course!

The last few years have also seen an industry-wide overhaul of frame styling, from thick and clunky to sleek and shiny, so it’s easy to see why most amateur golfers now use one.

Of course regarding the model for you, you should consider several things like storage, battery life and overall features when looking to buy an electric trolley.

JuCad Drive SL Travel 2.0 Ex Golf Trolley

+ Elegant, minimalist styling and clever, robust frame design
+ Remote function worked seamlessly during testing
– Perhaps lacking the level of features you may expect for the price

Lighter than many other golf trolleys, the Travel can be carried with one hand and folds quickly and tidily into a small size – even if you drive a car with a very small boot.

PowaKaddy CT6 GPS Golf Trolley

PowaKaddy CT6 GPS Electric Trolley Review

+ Stylish and folds down easily and compactly, leaving plenty of room for your clubs in your car
+ Features soon become easy to navigate
– Doesn’t accommodate stand bags overly well.

For golfers short on space but who still want in-built GPS functionality, the CT6 GPS provides an ideal solution. The new design ensures this trolley takes up surprisingly little space when folded down, and golfers now have the option of inverting the wheels to reduce the footprint even further. Our testing showed this to be a sturdy, reliable means of transport for clubs helped massively by accurate GPS distances.

+ The screen design adds premium appeal and the trolley and battery have proven to be reliable
+ Easy to assemble

Stewart Golf X9 Follow Golf Trolley

Stewart X9 Follow

+ Fun and enjoyable to use
+ Follow function leaves your hands free
– Heavy weight makes it difficult to lift into your car

This pricey option is also arguably the most sophisticated in this guide. A unique Bluetooth design lets it follow you around the course, turning when you turn, stopping when you stop, and removing the need to steer it with a remote control, although this is still an option. Its four wheels also generate excellent levels of grip that aid precise steering.
