Electric Trolleys

An electric golf trolley offer ease and comfort for the player that isn’t necessarily available when using manual trolleys. This buying guide to electric trolleys will give golfers all the information they need before choosing their preferred model.

What is an electric golf trolley?

Motorised or electric golf trolleys are essential for golfers who struggle when pushing or pulling their manual trolley around the golf course, and are ideal for tech-savvy golfers looking for some serious technology. Electric golf trolleys are powered by an on-board motor and battery, with modern mechanical trolleys having to be steered in the correct direction. These trolleys generally need little to no effort from the player, nor do they need to understand the mechanics of working them. The battery is chargeable with many lasting between 18 and 36 holes.

When using electric golf trolleys on the greens

Electric golf trolleys are very powerful machines, able to manoeuver about the golf course while carrying a full set of golf clubs over almost any terrain--including hills and inclines. Electric trolleys are battery operated so players need to recharge them after around 18-34 holes, depending on the model of the trolley.

Remotely controlled golf trolleys

Some electric golf trolleys can be driven remotely, and this is ideal for players who aren’t keen on pushing their trolleys around the course. Some of the best remote trolleys include the Stewart Golf X9 Follow Electric Trolley and Stewart Golf X9 Remote Electric Trolley.


How do electric golf trolleys operate?

Electric golf trolleys are powered by rechargeable batteries and can perform through poor weather and rocky turf. The remotely-controlled trolleys let players navigate a course around the greens with the trolley in tow, driving along at a speed customised to the golfers’ pace.
