Great sound quality

Reasons to avoid

-
GPS only offers front, middle and back yardages

Speakers (opens in new tab) at the golf course are becoming more and more popular of late and this wIngman from Bushnell is one of the best. This bluetooth speaker combines Bushnell's expertise in on-course GPS technology with a powerful and well built speaker.

The Wingman speaker comes with Bushnell's Bite technology which allows the device to be magnetically secured to any appropriate surface - we found it best attached to one of the metal pillars of a cart. Don't worry about the Wingman ever falling off a magnetic surface either as Bushnell's Bite technology is incredibly strong with its seven pounds of pulling force. The feature that sets the Wingman apart from the competition is its GPS (opens in new tab) feature that provides accurate yardages on the golf course.

How we test golf gear

At Golf Monthly we test golf gear with the same ethos in mind - testing products properly and extensively to see if they are actually worth buying, and then passing on our findings onto you, the reader. That way, we can produce extensive reviews that help you make an informed decision regarding possibly buying a certain model.

The Golf Monthly team are all regular golfers and with decades of experience, we look to understand new technology and design features on products. The best way of doing this is by simply using them regularly, especially when it comes to golf accessories. 

The team tests the models (opens in new tab) out on course for a number of rounds, learning what it is like to truly live with the product over a number of weeks and number of rounds to truly understand the product. 

How to choose a golf cart

What factors should you consider when thinking about buying a golf cart and therefore accessories? We take a look below.

Electric/Push

Obviously the first thing you want to think about is whether you want an electric model, or a push cart. Electric designs are obviously more expensive but come with a lot more features and require less effort to maneuver. Push carts are cheaper, usually lighter and very easy to use. An added element here is the remote golf cart (opens in new tab), which have become more popular of late. Knowing this will then inform you what kind of accessories to buy because certain accessories only work on specific carts.

Features

As we mentioned above lots of different models come with a wide range of features, and some look to simply perform as a trolley. For example some electric models come with GPS functionality, remote controls, shot-tracking and large LCD screens. Push carts also come with features like storage compartments, drinks holder, adjustable handle and so on. Therefore you should think about what extra features would be important to you when using a golf cart.

Ease of use

The whole point of a golf cart, and its accessories, is to make life easier on the golf course when moving from shot to shot, so a cart that isn't easy to use is pointless. They have to be easy to maneuver on the course and getting it out of the car, and most designs fold away too so this foldable process has to be simple to put up and fold away as well. The accessories should also clip on or off easily, and should also be easy to use on the course. 

Storage

Us golfers accumulate a lot of stuff whether it be tees, balls, scorecard, phone, wallet and so on and so forth. Sure it is easy to store this in the golf bag on the cart but for ease of access it is good to store things in the cart itself too. As a result pretty much all carts come with storage compartments these days with some being larger than others. Some accessories also allow you to store things like umbrellas, or drinks on the cart themselves too. 

Durability

A golf cart, and the accessories you can get with it, can be a large investment so it has to be able to last a long time, as well as deal with the rain, mud, and whatever general use gets thrown at it on the golf course. As such we recommend looking at models that are made from strong materials like aluminum. When it comes to accessories, we think the same or stronger plastics. 

Price

With so many brands making golf carts these days there is a model for everyone at every price point. If you want to go for the cheapest option which will just act as a cart, you can. Or if you want all the bells and whistles on an electric design, you can do that too. It is all a question of how much you want to spend.
