Electric Golf Trolley - Life Made Easier?

By: Michael Stollery

One example would be the tiresome activity of lugging that heavy bag of clubs around the course, complete with waterproofs, drinks bottle, banana and a dozen balls. A full bag can weigh up to 20 Kilograms, putting a big strain on your back, shoulders, neck and arms. Stop lugging that heavy golf bag and let an Electric golf trolley work for you. Using a powered cart is about game improvement, leaving you to concentrate on your swing and executing your best shot.

To those that have brought an electric caddy, they are finding that it is the perfect playing partner. More and more golfers are realising just how important a cart is for their game. There was a time when using a motorised caddy was something of a luxury. In most places it is not like that anymore, powered trolleys are fairly common and almost the norm. You rarely see a whole group walking the course with out at least one of them using a powered cart.

An electric Golf trolley, as the name suggests, is a battery operated automatic cart that could be either manual or remote control. It provides easy transportation of clubs from tee to green and allows a normal upright posture while walking. This reduces the risk of strains and injuries. This also provides added comfort and helps the golfer to concentrate on his swing.There are many benefits of using a powered caddy over a traditional pull trolley. With the manual option, you are required to walk around in a bent forward and twisted position. Which after a while can in my experience cause back and shoulder pain, thus negating the benefit of a trolley? The best option is a powered caddy; an electric trolley will transport your clubs from tee to green with ease, whilst allowing you to walk behind the cart in a normal upright position, gently guiding the trolley at you own pace.

The most common of these injuries is the lower-back or spinal injury, closely followed by the left wrist and shoulder. At least three out of every five golfers experience back injuries at some point of time or another. The primary causes of such injuries are due to poor swing mechanics, poor physical fitness and sporadic play.

Owning an electric cart doesn't have to cost the earth, they are compact, come complete with a range of accessories and cost little more than a quality traditional trolley.
