An electric golf trolley is the closest most of us will get to a full-time caddie. They are becoming increasingly popular, as players realise the benefits of staying fresh for the full 18 holes, thanks to not having to carry their own bag.

These days, trolleys are sleek, the batteries are light, and they are incredibly easy to use.

We look at the best on the market, some with all the bells and whistles, some which are the bare bones. 


PowaKaddy Touch

The new kid on the block from Powakaddy. The key feature is the trolley moves as you walk – no need to twizzle any knobs or press buttons. Place your hand on the handle grip, and the trolley will respond to the pace you walk. Boasts no wires, the thinnest lithium battery on the market, and superb aesthetics.

Price: from £399.99

Comments

But my God, aren't some of them mega expensive! All I want is a motor, wheels and a frame to hold my bag. My GoKart still does the job very well and I can have it out of the boot and up and ready to use in less than a minute. Now I've converted it to a Lithium battery I've no plans to change it unless it falls apart

GoKart have been selling an automatic electric trolley for at least 3 years now. I have had mine for 2 1/2 - it is great and light and folds up nice and small. Why the fuss about the Powakaddy Touch? Why not include the GoKart?
