Are you ready to take the next step in your golfing game? Investing in a golf trolley signals to your fellow players that you’re a professional, and will offer you a host of other benefits as well – but where do you even begin? If you’ve been toying with the idea of purchasing a golf trolley for some time, today’s guide should help you to make an informed decision about which kind will meet your needs.

Manual v electronic?

Manual trolleys have been around since the beginning and are still used today as a popular means of carrying your golf kit around the green. But they can be uncomfortable and drain your energy, after all, the average golfer will walk anywhere between 8-10km during a standard game!

If pulling your trolley behind you throughout the day isn’t an issue then it can be a really affordable means of playing. Clarkes’ Golf are one of the leading stockists of push golf trolleys, offering some of the biggest brands including Big Max, and Motocaddy, and have something for all budgets – so it’s worth taking a look if you’re not ready to splurge on its electric counterpart just yet.

However, there’s no denying that if budget allows, an electric golf trolley can be much more convenient, allowing you to reserve your energy for the game itself. They’re stylish, easy to operate and offer a smooth run, ideal if you’re going to be on your feet for hours.

So, if an electric golf trolley is on your radar, here are a few things you should consider first:

Price – when it comes to electric golf trolleys, you usually get what you pay for. The good news is that we do cater to all budgets, and hold regular sales as well meaning you can get your hands on a leading Motocaddy trolley for as little as £499. However, the more you pay, the better the performance usually is. So it’s worth considering how much use you’re looking to get out of your trolley. It may be more worthwhile investing in a higher end one if you’re a keen golfer who plays every week.

Battery – there are two types of battery commonly used in electric golf trolleys: lead acid batteries and lithium. Where possible, you want to be opting for a lithium battery operated trolley as this will last longer and charge faster, allowing you to take your time around the course without issue.

Performance – how much you plan to cart around during a game should be a deciding factor when it comes to selecting your electric golf trolley. Especially if you’re playing a hilly course. Check the specs of your electric golf trolley to ensure you’re not caught short during a game.
