The Best Electric Golf Trolley 2020
The best electric golf trolley for you will depend on your budget, the features you need, how much you are worried about the weight and size of the trolley, and the type of battery that suits your needs.
We've put together our pick of the best electric golf trolleys on the market right now to help you pick the trolley that's best for you.
Powakaddy CT6 GPS electric trolley from £799
Whereas the FX trolleys have a one-click folding system, to get both the CT6 and CT6 GPS into an impossibly small space a two-fold system is necessary. PowaKaddy say that’s where the extra cost of a compact goes, the folding mechanism. It means both CT trolleys, like all the FX models, now come with adjustable height handles which can be a real benefit to taller or shorter golfers.

Motocaddy S1 electric trolley from £549.99
Not everyone wants every bell and whistle on their electric trolley, and that’s where the S1 comes in. According to Motocaddy it’s been the world’s top-selling electric trolley over the past decade, and for 2020 there’s new styling and new features, including an updated handle design, stylish new frame and wheel colours.
It includes USB charging, an anti-glare LCD screen, nine speed settings and Adjustable Distance Control (ADC) in 15, 30 and 45-yard increments. QuikFold allows the trolley to be ready-to-use in seconds, plus the soft-touch handle has been updated.
All-in it’s everything you’d want in an electric trolley at a really attractive price.
Powakaddy FX7 electric trolley from £679.99
PowaKaddy’s new FX series replaces the very popular Freeway family. And the FW7 is our pick of PowaKaddy’s 2020 range because it offers everything you need (other than GPS, which you can get in the FX7 GPS or the compact CT6 GPS) in an electric trolley, including a three-year warranty.
Like all 2020 PowaKaddy models, it has a whisper-quiet motor, anti-tamper dial control to stop you accidentally turning the trolley on and a chassis that’s 20% smaller than previous Freeways.
Extra features come in the form of a clock, calorie counter, round timer, speedo and distance measuring function, which measures not only how far you’ve hit a drive or approach, but also how far the trolley’s travelled during its lifetime. It does all that via PowaKaddy’s largest 3.5in colour screen.
Like all 2020 PowaKaddys it’s beautifully engineered.
Motocaddy M5 GPS electric trolley from £749.99
We were really impressed when we first set eyes on the M5 GPS in January. It’s a sleek piece of kit, and the touchscreen works just like an iPhone. It’s taken a while to get the design and waterproof housing just right, but it’s been worth the wait; this is one of our favourite electric trolleys of 2020.
As well as GPS access to 40,000 courses around the world – front, middle and back distances, along with the ability to move flags, measure shots and check for any hazards on the hole – the M5 is absolutely packed with features. When the trolley is hooked up to the free Motocaddy GPS app, golfers can receive smartphone notifications – missed calls, texts, emails and messenger alerts.
BEST OF THE REST
Motocaddy M-Tech electric trolley – £1199.99
The M-Tech is Motocaddy's most expensive electric golf trolley. It's designed with high spec luxury finishes like leather handle grips and polished chrome detailing to offer the ultimate in golf club transportation. A downhill brake keeps you safe on slopes, high power electronics puts less stress on components and you get a 36-hole lithium battery.
Powakaddy FX3 electric trolley from £499
The FX3 is Powakaddy's entry-level model; its predecessor (FW3) was PowaKaddy's biggest seller, so in reality itdelivers an ideal blend of size, price and features. The one-click chassis is 20% smaller than previous Freeway's. Also available as a downhill brake model.
Stewart X9 Follow electric trolley – £1499
Built-in Bluetooth tech means youcan walk the fairways and the X9 trolley will follow behind you - when you reach the green simply turn the Bluetooth handset into a remote control and guide the trolley towards the next tee. Genius.
Big Max Hunter Quad electric trolley – £899
Big Max say four wheels increases stability over any three-wheel model. Both front wheels turn through 360°, making for great manoeuvrability. It's not the lightest but, thanks to German engineering, you can expect it to last.
GoKart electric trolley - £329
GoKart have always looked a a bit different, but they've recently given their trolley a complete overhaul. Choose between a a standard or automatic speed control, which matches pace to how fast you walk. Designed and and made in the UK, the lower price is thanks to having a heavier, lead acid battery.
GolfStream Vision electric trolley - £449
A patented one-touch folding mechanism means the Vision is the worlds simplest trolley to set up, according to GolfStream. A new white screen (like an eReader) makes it easier to read in direct sunlight. Stylish and packed full of features at a very reasonable price.
