Golf Monthly Verdict

The PowaKaddy DLX Lite FF has a brilliantly simple, flat-folding design that saves an awful lot of space. The high quality aluminium frame is super lightweight to push and the wide wheel base keeps the trolley stable across all terrain. We particularly enjoyed the dual foot brake system and feature-packed handle console, too.

PowaKaddy DLX Lite FF Push Cart Review

As far as push carts go, this is undoubtedly the best on the market currently. PowaKaddy has thought about everything in this sophisticated design from the functional, ergonomic handle that adjusts to different heights, to the perfectly positioned scorecard holder where, along with keeping your card dry, you can also keep a couple of spare balls - very handy if you need to play a provisional or three off the tee as we did on the day we took the trolley for a test run at Essendon CC.

Pencil and tee peg holders are ideally placed alongside, which saves you from having to carry these in your pockets. There's also a drinks holder at your finger tips and we'd highly recommend that you invest in the PowaKaddy umbrella holder attachment  to ensure that all your gear stays dry.

Aside from the excellent lightweight handling (this trolley is really easy to push, even when loaded with a heavy trolley bag on board, held in place with strong straps) the stand-out feature in our opinion has to be the clever folding system. In a few simple clicks the DLX Lite FF folds down nearly as flat as a pancake - and fast too. The wheels cleverly twist inward to give you the ultimate in space-saving storage - perfect for squeezing into the smallest car boot or even on the parcel shelf or storing in a locker at your golf club if you're lucky enough to have one. It's a different concept to the popular Motocaddy Cube Push Cart, but one that is equally time and space saving.

The dual parking brakes for the front and rear wheels work very effectively to hold the trolley in a stable position when you stop to play your shot. The wide wheel base provides a stable ride for your bag and clubs and the lightweight frame and adjustable handle height combine to make this seem easy to push up steep hills.

Over the years Carly has been fortunate to play some of the greatest courses in the world. Her view ‘from the ladies tee’ is invaluable. She ranks Sea Island, Georgia, USA, where she met her husband, world-renowned golf coach Dan Frost, among her favourite golf resorts. Their aptly-named eight-year-old son Hogan is already hitting the ball as far as Mum and will undoubtedly be a name to watch out for in the future.

Carly holds the ladies course record (68) at her home club Parkstone and her lowest competition round (seven-under-par 65) was carded in the pro-am of the Irish Ladies Open at Killeen Castle, playing alongside Solheim Cup superstar Anna Nordqvist. Although her current handicap index has crept up to 3.7 since Covid she has her sights firmly set on achieving that elusive scratch handicap and hopefully playing for her country when she’s 50.
