We run through some of the best golf carts out there right now in this comprehensive guide.
Best Golf Carts
Golf carts have grown in popularity over the past few years. Brands like Motocaddy, PowaKaddy, Stewart Golf and a whole host more have manufactured, refined and developed their push carts, electric models and even remote control golf trolleys to make the job of walking the golf course more convenient and importantly, easier on the body.
Indeed because of this growth, there are lots of different options to consider, and a lot of different models that cover a variety of price points. So the question remains which are the best golf carts? Which ones should you consider buying if you are in the market for a golf cart?
Well this is where this post comes in as we have looked to give you an idea on some of the best in the business.
Best Golf Carts
JuCad Drive SL Travel 2.0 Ex Golf Cart
+ Robust and yet elegant frame
+ Remote control function worked well during testing
– For the price you may expect more features
One of the best golf carts out there right now, the JuCad Drive SL worked brilliantly during our testing. It is very light and can be folded away quickly and tidily into a small size, ideal if you have a small car or little storage space at home. Indeed because of this, and because it breaks down into a number of small pieces, it is also a cart that is ideal for taking abroad or on your next golf trip to Pinehurst or Bandon.

Stewart Golf R1-S Push Cart
+ Folding mechanism works well
+ Very easy to push around the course
+ Good colour choice
– May not work as well with a stand bag on it

Motocaddy M5 GPS Golf Trolley
+ Compact and quick folding mechanism
+ Touch screen is crystal clear
– Folding latches can be stiff
Sitting at the top of the Motocaddy range right now is the M5 GPS cart. It looks great, folds down nicely and we particularly liked the hi-res 3.5” LCD display that can be controlled in all weather conditions, even when wearing a glove. The screen can also give yardages, track scores and the time of your round.
It is also very easy to use thanks to the drive system which is very efficient and reliable.

PowaKaddy FX7 GPS Golf Trolley
+ Folds up and down with incredible ease
+ Impressive display that is easy to navigate.
– Adjusting the handle height is a fiddly process
The FX7 GPS by PowaKaddy is a marked improvement on the last generation’s model. It can fold down 20 per cent smaller thanks to the removal of the central pillar and we also found the high visibility full colour Touch Screen to be easy to use and clear to the eye. The integrated GPS also gives yardages to the front, middle and back of the green too which could inform your club choices.

Motocaddy Cube Push Cart
+ Compact and light
+ Easy to push even on hilly courses
– Be a little careful on side slopes
A model that featured in our best golf push trolleys guide, Motocaddy has created a top-notch cart design here. The two-step folding system is simple and easy to use, whilst the manoeuvrability is excellent too. We do recommend being slightly careful on side slopes though because of the lightweight design, but realistically you could say this about most push carts.

Stewart Golf X9 Follow Golf Cart
+ Top of the market model
+ Follow function leaves your hands free
– Heavy weight makes it difficult to lift into your car
One of the best golf carts money can buy, the X9 Follow from Stewart Golf has a unique Bluetooth feature that lets it follow you around the course, without the need for remote control manoeuvring, unless you choose to of course. Admittedly this is a pricey option, but it truly sits atop the tree in terms of technology and you still get excellent levels of grip, stability, and usability too. We also think it looks great so you will undoubtedly make many people at your course very jealous indeed when you turn up to the tee with this cart.
