Let’s not skirt around the obvious, electric golf trolleys are a significant financial investment. Even the lower end “cheaper” electric golf trolleys come at a premium price, so are they really worth it?

In our opinion, absolutely!

Although we’re not going to pretend that this techy piece of equipment is a necessity, it can be an absolute game changer for professionals and keen golfers alike who spend a great deal of their time on the green. And yes, although they are going to set you back a few hundred pounds, you can now get some incredibly priced electric golf trolleys that cost the same as a high end push trolley – so for us it’s a bit of a no brainer.

But, if you’re still unsure whether an electric golf trolley is right for you, here are three of our top benefits to golfing with one that you ought to know about.

1. More playing time

You won’t need to look far to find reasons for why an electric golf trolley should be at the top of your wish list, but one thing people rarely mention is that they offer so much extra playing time!

Why? Because without lugging your gear around or pushing a manual golf trolley, you’re significantly reducing your risk of injuries whilst simultaneously lessening the time you will need to recover. Which means, you’ll be able to play more often and for longer!

We don’t know about you, but to us it sounds like a great reason to invest your money in an electric golf trolley!

2. They’re fun!

Arguably less of a benefit and more of a perk, but if you’re not going to spend your money on something that brings you joy above all else, then what’s the point? Most of the modern electric golf trolleys now come with a range of quirky mod cons that can not only aid you in your game but can also be a lot of fun to play with!

For instance, there are some electric golf trolleys that have in-built GPS, others that have built-in USB ports to charge your phone and some even have functions that will send your trolley on its way to the next hole, along with your gear, whilst you play the hole you’re at. If that isn’t a reason to splash out, then we don’t know what is.

3. Refreshments galore

We’ve all been there, we’re on our 15th hole and the hunger is kicking in big time. You can’t just leave mid-game, but there’s a long way to go and without food or drink you’re going to seriously struggle. The answer? An electric golf trolley of course! Sure, maybe you could wedge in a bottle of water and a piece of fruit into your old golf carry-on, but you’re not going to be able to carry around loads of refreshments. An electric golf trolley can though, and it can mean that you can safely play in all weathers with food and drink to hand when the time comes. This may sound like a luxury, but regular golfers will know that being fed and watered during a long day on the links is vital for health.

Don’t just take our word for it – try an electric golf trolley out for yourself!

We appreciate that investing in an electric golf trolley is an entirely personal decision, and whether you do it or not may depend on a range of personal factors. But we hope that our three top benefits has given you some food for thought.
