Golf Monthly Verdict

Motocaddy has a reputation for producing reliable, easy to use electric trolleys. The S3 Pro adds to that legacy. The performance is excellent and whilst the added extras might not be worthwhile for everyone, they have been designed with the golfer in mind. They are easy to use and add to the experience of 18 holes without creating any unwanted complexity.

Motocaddy S3 Pro Trolley Review – Key Technology

This sleek trolley features low profile wheels and the company’s excellent Quickfold system but the real benefit for the S3 Pro lies with the extra features. The ability to measure distances, the USB charging port, cartlock pin security system, battery meter and lost ball timer are all integrated into the simple, ergonomic handle.

Motocaddy S3 Pro Trolley Review – Our Feedback

There is no doubt the Motocaddy S3 Pro is an excellent trolley. First and foremost it is light and easy to manoeuvre. No matter how undulating your golf course, it chews up the terrain and makes getting round the course far less tiring. However, these benefits are just as well defined in the new and less expensive S1 model by Motocaddy. The extra price-tag here comes courtesy of the added features and the digital display looks great and the features are all easy to use. The ability to send the trolley forward a certain distance might not be new but it’s a feature we really like and its easy to use here.

Motocaddy S Series Bags

If you are thinking of investing, we would recommend the lithium battery version. It is more expensive but it is much lighter and charges very quickly. You can lift the trolley in  and out of your car without the need to remove the battery. Motocaddy also so it's more reliable and they offer an extended warranty. For us, the lithium battery version also makes the trolley easier to manoeuvre and therefore easier to use.

It might not be the smallest trolley on the market once folded down but it is neat and low profile which means that most people should be able to store it without much trouble. An excellent trolley at a good price given the added extras on offer!

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."


Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
