Electric Golf Trolleys
The electric golf trolley was, for a long time, thought of as a golf product for the elderly to assist them in getting around the course. Times have changed, however, and now every demographic of golfer has come to see the benefits an electric golf trolley can have for you and your golf game. With electric golf trolleys, it can be difficult to know which brand or model to choose. The best way of choosing is by answering the following three questions:
How small do I need the electric golf trolley to fold?
This is a very important question to ask as generally the electric golf trolley will be going home with you after a round of golf. The main factor here is the amount of boot space you have available in your car. Certain electric trolleys now fold down extremely small and can fit into pretty tight spaces. If your boot is not the largest then you should look at the models that fold down the smallest. They are usually only slightly more expensive than the base models.
Do I need GPS on my electric golf trolley?
One of the biggest advancements in golf in the past decade or so has been the advent of GPS distance measuring devices. Using a GPS watch, handheld device or laser rangefinder means that selecting the correct club has become much easier. If you are a player that uses these devices a lot then a GPS electric golf trolley may be desirable. Usually the premium model in each of the manufacturer's electric golf trolley ranges, the GPS versions have large LCD displays which link into to your phone via Bluetooth. The distance to certain hazards and also the distance to the green shows up on the display for instant information. They are an excellent option but if you are happy enough just using your watch or laser then one of the less expensive models may be a better choice.
Do I need anything on my electric golf trolley apart from the basic functions?
The base model electric golf trolleys are now absolutely superb. With functionality limited to stop and go, and different speed settings they do the job they are designed for perfectly. There are trolleys though, that are slightly more expensive, and offer some different features. The distance control function can be very useful. As you approach a green you can set the trolley off going to the next tee and it will stop after ten, twenty or thirty feet saving you time and energy after you have finished the hole.
DHC or EBS (essentially the same as each other, just different brand names) is a particularly useful function. This prevents the trolley from speeding up when going down any sort of hill and keeps it at your walking speed. Definitely an option worth considering. Trolleys in this price range will also usually have a USB charging point for your phone or GPS device.
