Best Golf Carts – Our Guide To The Top Models Right Now


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 (or carts of buggies, depending on your location!) 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?

This guide should give you an idea on some of the best in the business in the remote, electric and push categories.

If you want to be more specific then take a look at our guides on the best remote control trolleys, best electric golf trolleys and best golf push carts as well.

Electric Golf Carts

Motocaddy M5 GPS Golf Trolley

Drag-and-drop pin position

+ 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

Integrated GPS


+ 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.

Stewart Golf Q Follow Trolley

Unique follow function

Stewart Golf Q Follow Electric Trolley Unveiled

+ Genuine hands-free functionality unique to the market
+ Easy to assemble and operate
+ Battery lasts for 36 holes, even on hilly courses
– Still quite heavy to lift

Stewart Golf has been making some of the best electric golf trolleys for years now so it comes as no surprise the Q Follow is in this list.

It can follow you around the course at your walking pace from a safe distance thanks to the unique functionality built into the Bluetooth handset. A completely new frame design, which has a unique marble-effect finish, allows it to fold down much more compactly while an integrated carry handle makes it easier to lift into your car. There’s also a new retractable stabiliser comprising two wheels, which automatically deploys as the trolley is unfolded.

Compact folding


+ Stylish and folds down easily and compactly
+ Easy to navigate features
– Doesn’t accommodate stand bags overly well

This PowaKaddy model is ideal for those people who want a cart with GPS functionality, but don’t want to take up a lot of space. When folded down the CT6 GPS is perfect for small storage areas and you can reduce the footprint further by inverting the wheels. Indeed if space is at a premium for you, then definitely take a look through our most compact golf trolleys piece.

Motocaddy M-Tech Golf Cart

– Premium price will put some off

One of our favourite carts on the market, the M-Tech is cutting-edge in every way. The super-lightweight, high-capacity battery and next-generation electronics work seamlessly and it screams premium product with little touches like the carbon fibre styling, leather handle grips and cool wheels.

JuCad Drive SL Travel 2.0 Ex Golf Cart

Minimalist frame design

Best Golf Carts

+ 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.

Ergonomic handset

Motocaddy M7 Remote Electric Trolley Revealed

+ Simple to use and compact footprint

Replacing the original S7 Remote is the M7 which is the eighth model in the compact M-Series range. Features include an anti-glare LCD screen, a pair of anti-skid rear wheels and an extra (removable) anti-tip wheel at the back to provide stability on all terrains. As with all M-Series models available, its integral compact-folding SlimFold system makes it possible to fit into the smallest car boots.

In terms of the remote, it is easy to use and fully rechargeable – using the trolley’s USB charging port if needed. It can move the trolley forward, left, right and in reverse, with an additional pause and resume feature. The handset range is up to 50 metres.

Manual powered golf carts that are less expensive than electric carts but still offer plenty of features and storage, ideal for slightly flatter courses of fair-weather golfers.

Bag Boy Nitron Push Cart

Best Golf Carts

+ Lightning fast folding mechanism
+ Compact and lightweight

With one of the simplest folding mechanism’s out there, this Bag Boy Nitron cart has a compact size when folded down which makes it ideal for storage, and folds up quickly and efficiently to minimise setup time when you are getting to the first tee.

With 9 diverse colour ways to choose from you can truly forge your own path on the golf course with this Sun Mountain Pathfinder cart.

+ Feature packed
+ Improvements on previous design
– Assembly can be a fiddly process

The new 4.0 cart from Clicgear has an updated lid lock, silicone straps, umbrella strap along with a new and improved scorecard and pencil holder. The choice of different colours is a chance to add some individuality to your cart, whilst it is also very compact when folded down making it good for storage as well.

Tangkula Golf 3-Wheel Push Cart

Best Golf Carts

+ Any sized golf bag fits well
+ Black stealth frame looks great
– Wheels are quite small

Tangkula has created this high-quality trolley with aluminum to add strength and yet it isn’t too heavy or difficult to move. It also looks great thanks to the stealth black finish and the cart is also very easy to assemble and fold up or down. There is good value to be had here.

Big Max Ti Lite Push Trolley

Best Golf Carts

+ Lightweight, sturdy, robust
+ Minimal effort to move
– Doesn’t fold down overly flat or compactly

One of the most slender designs on this list, Big Max has constructed this Ti Lite with a simple, quick fold mechanism that weighs just over 10 pounds. It also has ample storage, accommodates any size golf bag well and the five year warranty when registered with the brand adds to the value too.

PowaKaddy TwinLine 4 Push Cart

Best Golf Carts

+ Simple compaction mechanism
+ Easy manoeuvrability
– Not as compact when folded as other push trolleys on this list

At just 15 pounds in total weight, PowaKaddy has created a very lightweight option here that has a compact folding mechanism as well as on-course adjustability. Three large wheels make it easy to push and steer, particularly when combined with the comfy handle. The accessory station is also well designed and easy to access.

Stewart Golf R1-S Push Cart

Best Golf Push Trolleys, Best Golf Carts

+ 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

Stewart Golf has improved its R1 Push cart with this R1-S model. During testing we thought the folding mechanism worked excellently and the ease of use when walking and pushing it makes it one of the best golf carts around. The splash of colour differentiates it further too.

CaddyTek CaddyLite EZ V8 Cart

Best Golf Carts

+ Lots of awesome features
+ Good colour choice
– Quite pricey option

CaddyTek has implemented its excellent one-click button mechanism here which folds the cart down brilliantly. It also has a strong aluminum frame that doesn’t seem to weigh anything at all making it easy to use, and there is also an umbrella holder, storage rack and get this, a miscellaneous basket with built-in cooler!

Motocaddy Cube Push Cart

Best Golf Carts

+ 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.

Cube Golf 3.0 Push Cart

Best Golf Push Trolleys, Best Golf Carts

+ Small folded footprint
+ Robust and light construction
– May struggle to accommodate a large cart bag

From Motocaddy’s Cube, to Cube’s very own 3.0 Push Cart, this is a lightweight and robust model which will keep your bag well in place. It folds down nicely, has a good aesthetic look to it and we feel it ticks a lot of boxes indeed.
