Electric trolleys are one of the fastest evolving segments of the golf equipment industry, with the release of the latest trolley’s from PowaKaddy and Motocaddy set to be revolutionary, not only for the way we transport our clubs, but also for how golfers calculate their yardages.
With both fitted with a GPS, either via an integrated system in the handle, or via Bluetooth connectivity, golfers will now be able to ascertain distances simply by glancing at their trolley handle.
For those who are looking for a great trolley without the frills, there are also several simple to operate, gadget-free trolleys from which to choose. Other features to look out for when considering your purchase are the trolley’s ability to compactly fold, weight, distance controls, and noise level. Meanwhile, three-wheeled push trolleys are a fantastic alternative for those on a smaller budget, and are surprisingly lightweight and easy to transport.
