As a golfer, you want to enjoy a good round of golf, right?
Whilst we’re sure you’re well aware that walking the course is the best way to keep in shape and to chat with fellow golfers, the last thing you want to be doing is lugging your heavy golf bag around on your shoulder for 18 holes.
The weight of your golf clubs alone can put a lot of pressure on your core muscles and, in turn, affect your swing. And although you could ride in a golf buggy or hire a personal caddy to do the arduous work for you, an electric golf trolley is a fantastic alternative.
Here we look at six great reasons why you should consider the investment:
Carries more than just your golf clubs
Aside from transporting your clubs, a golf trolley allows you to take so much more out onto the golf course with you – including refreshments to keep your energy levels up! Some of the best electric golf trolleys on the market today come with a host of brilliant accessories too, such as a drink holder, phone cradle, scorecard holder and umbrella holder.
Suitable for most terrain
Much like a push golf trolley, motorised models glide effortlessly across flat courses – the only difference is that an electric trolley uses a battery so you don’t have to lift a finger. The battery should hold out for the full 18-holes and even works well on hilly and undulating terrain.
Walk the course without aches and pains
Swinging your golf club and walking from one hole to the next requires a lot of energy and engages your core muscles without you even realising. Add to this the fact that the average golf bag weighs approximately 10kg, and all golfers are bound to tire as they approach the final few holes. That’s why it makes sense to invest in an electric trolley to alleviate aches and pains – allowing you to play better and for longer.
Easy to control
With an electric golf trolley, you needn’t worry about having to push your trolley or drag it behind you again. And even on the steepest of slopes, you will always be in full control. Many golf trolleys these days have a Downhill Control (DHC) function to ensure it maintains a steady speed when travelling downhill, and a parking brake which means you can secure the trolley and take your shot confidently knowing that it won’t roll away.
Fits neatly in the boot of your car
Push trolleys often have the smallest folding footprint but many electric golf trolleys fold down to a ridiculously compact size too, despite having a battery in situ. Aside from being foldable, these trolleys are incredibly simple to set up which means you can lift them in and out of your car boot with ease and head out onto the links in no time.
Doesn’t take up more storage space at home
Have you been toying with the idea of getting one of these golf trolleys for quite some time but worried you don’t have enough room at home? Fear not, these trolleys fold down into a neat stack and can be stored almost anywhere in the house. Perfectly safe in the boot of your car whilst you travel to and from the golf course, you can simply lift it out once you arrive at home and place it in the corner of your garage.
