We might not be able to hit the links at the moment due to lockdown restrictions, but why not make the most of your time at home and stock up on a few stylish staples for your wardrobe? Go on – you deserve it! And if it’s new gear you’re after, be sure to take a look at the extensive range of golf equipment available to buy online at Clarkes’ Golf Centre.

Whether it be new clubs, golf balls, a GPS watch or rangefinder, you’re sure to find it – and for a great price too. The question is, how will you transport everything around the course when they get the green light to reopen?

Naturally, you could stow the essentials inside a trusty old stand bag and carry it across your shoulders. But carrying your golf bag can be taxing and leave you feeling drained on those all-important final holes. That’s why increasingly more golfers are opting for an electric golf trolley instead.

Here we look at just a few reasons why you should consider investing in a motorised trolley in 2021:

1. Take the strain off your body

Golf is a sport that demands players to carry around heavy gear and involves a lot of walking. For instance, an avid golfer will easily spend 8-hours on their feet when playing 36-holes which is why an electric golf trolley can be a godsend. It takes the strain off your body (particularly your back and shoulders) which, in turn, reduces the risk of aches and pains midway through the round.

2. Preserve your energy

Carrying is ideal if you’re playing 9-holes with your mates. All you need to do is grab your bag from the boot of the car and head out onto the links. However, if you struggle from chronic joint pain or you’re playing a standard round, then your muscles will tire much faster and – before you know it – your energy levels will be dwindling. Fortunately, electric golf trolleys use batteries to power them around the links, allowing you to spare your energy for the game and maintain your form from start to finish.

3. Focus on your game

After a dismal 2020, it’s only right wanting to concentrate on bettering your game when the courses eventually reopen after lockdown 3.0. Perhaps your putting needs a little more work, or your swing is lacking power? Whatever it may be, a battery-powered golf trolley allows you to focus on improving your gameplay – without worrying about lugging the weight of your clubs around.

4. Easy to use on hilly courses

Electric golf trolleys are perfect for undulating terrain and save you the hassle of pushing or dragging the weight of your golf bag to the top of steep slopes. Of course, it depends on the trolley, but there are some brilliant models out there that have a Downhill Control (DHC) function. This prevents your trolley from running away from you, allowing you to remain in control at all times.

5. Take more equipment

One of the biggest benefits of golf trolleys is that they offer more storage space – meaning you can pack more into your golf bag (i.e. waterproofs, towels, umbrella, etc.) and not have to worry about lifting, pushing or pulling the extra weight. You can even stock up on refreshments – be it a couple of bottles of water, sandwiches, sausage rolls, cereal bars, maybe even some jelly babies – to keep your energy levels up during the round.

6. Surprisingly compact

Whilst the cost of an electric golf trolley is an important factor to consider, so is storage space. If space is already at a premium in your home, garage or car boot, you might be worried about finding a place for your heavy golf trolley to live when it’s not in use. But relax. Despite having a battery, electric golf trolleys can be folded compact – making it easy for you to transport to and from the golf course, and not taking up too much room in your home for days when you’re not playing golf. Win-win.

7. Loads of great features

Ranging from GPS to widescreen full-colour display, phone holders and more than 40,000 courses pre-loaded, the technology and features built into electric golf trolleys is mind-blowing. Some even come with a USB charging port which enables you to charge your phone whilst walking the course and provide real-time notifications. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

8. Long-lasting

Whilst an electric golf trolley is a significant investment – costing several hundreds of pounds – it’s money well spent if you’re a keen golfer and will serve you for many years to come (providing you look after it properly!). Things like checking the axles and clutches for debris build-up, joints for tightness and the condition of tyres and batteries won’t take too long but will ensure you get the most out of your trolley.
