What we say...
What we like
This is like the golf trolley equivalent of an American muscle car – it’s absolutely huge when folded out and would have no problem towing any size golf bag you care to throw on it. But that said it has some nice touches of finesse. It folds up extremely neatly and has plenty of space for your valuables and other golfing paraphernalia. The size of the trolley means it has a wide wheel base and this gives it an impressive amount of stability even on hillier terrain. The handle, hinges, frame and wheels are also very sturdy indicating that this is built to last, as it should be for the price.
What we don’t like
The sheer size of it may put some golfers off because it does look extremely imposing on the fairways. It’s also not the lightest option on the market but the well-designed folding mechanism means it locks in place when folded down so it is pretty easy to carry for everyone.

VERDICT: Our team were amazed at how small the Callaway Chev 18 was when it was folded - because it was huge when fully assembled.
The engineering and design work is superb but our team felt it was a little bit too complicated to fold and unfold and the sheer size of the trolley was a bit overbearing on the course.
It also felt like one of the heaviest on test - although it was an absolute breeze to use on the course. Ultimately if a big, robust trolley is what you're after then this is a great option.
RATINGS (out of five):
Overall: 3 stars
The Callaway Chev Golf Trolley is a lightweight three-wheel trolley with quick-clip strap bag mounting system, with easy push-on, pull-off footbrake system. Compact when folded up.
