The golf season is fast approaching us and I for one cannot wait. It’s been another long winter here in the UK and the days are becoming warmer and longer.
Which only means one thing… More golf!
After a long winter, I have struggled to carry my bag round on the first few 18 holes of the season. So, I have pulled the trusty three wheel golf trolley out of the garage, dusted it down and started to use it. I forgot how much easier it is on your back and shoulders to use a golf trolly instead of carrying.
Now, many people say carrying is good for your fitness but contrary to belief it’s actually bad for your back. Just think, do you ever see a pro tour player carrying? Nope, because carrying a golf bag full of balls, clubs, drinks, and god knows what else weights a ton and only adds strain to your back.
What type of golf trolley should you buy?
There are three main types of golf trolley that you should consider and they are:
- Electric golf trolleys
- Push along 3 and 4 wheel golf trolley
- Drag along golf trolleys
Anyone of the three above is better than carrying a bag, but some have more benefits than others. In this article, we will cover all three and give you some examples of the best of each type that we found for sale online and the best prices. This will help you save time looking for a new golf trolley but also save you money.
Golf isn’t a cheap hobby and if you’re just starting to learn how to play golf you’ll need all the money you have for lessons which is the best way to learn. If you’re just starting you won’t want to spend too much on golf clubs until you’re certain you love golf. Then you can invest in a custom fitted set. Until then check out our review of the best golf irons under £200.
Which Golf trolleys are the best?
The best golf trolley is hard to define, you could say that the most expensive golf trolley is surely the best, Right?
Well, no. What’s best for one person may not be the best for others. There are a number of factors to consider, price, size, weight, style, easy to fold, easy to set up.
