EXPERT TIP - Remote or Manual

If you like to be hands-on with your electric cart you should consider a manual version. For those who want some freedom, carts with remote control allow you to walk the course and enjoy your round.

BEST FOLLOWING ELECTRIC CART - Stewart Golf Q Follow

BEST FOLLOWING ELECTRIC CART - Stewart Golf Q Follow

Those who want the feeling of having a caddie should look towards the Stewart Golf Q Follow. Its follow feature allows the cart to remain 6 feet behind you while following your every step. You can also switch it to manual for those tight spots around water or bunkers.

Features That Matter

Maneuverability

For the ultimate in maneuverability, you want a cart with a 360-degree front wheel. Carts with fixed front wheels sometimes struggle to make tight turns. Also be aware that some models are designed to follow you wherever you go, staying within a few feet at all times. If that’s problematic, consider a remote-controlled model that only goes where you tell it to.

For those who want a cart that turns with ease, consider Motocaddy M7 Remote and MGI Zip Navigator Remote. The Stewart Golf Q-Follow and X10 are other great options to consider.

Features

Some electric golf push carts can just get you from A to B while others follow you, tell you the GPS distance to the hole, link up your phone to the cart and have accessories to make your round more enjoyable.

The electric carts that did well in the category were MGI Navigator Remote, Stewart Golf Q Follow and Stewart Golf X10

Stability

For powered push carts, there are two primary stability considerations. The first is the ability to handle uneven and challenging terrain.

The second consideration is the cart’s ability to keep your bag upright when it is in motion. We found that some models don’t secure bags as tightly as they should. Avoid using a stand bag on electric carts if you can.

Golfers who want the best of both should look into the Motocaddy family, especially the M7 Remote and M5 GPS. Alphard Club Booster V2 will depend on what push cart you have for the V2 to attach to. The Stewart Golf Q-Follow also performed well if you have a cart bag.

Battery Life

One of two types of batteries is used in powered push carts: lead acid or lithium. In the carts we tested, we found that lithium batteries provide longer running life and can keep your cart rolling for 27-plus holes.

All models tested last 27-plus holes with some easily completing 36. Motocaddy M7 and Stewart Golf X10 both have plenty of juice to last 36 holes.

EXPERT TIP - Weight

For many golfers, the weight of the electric cart can be an issue lifting it from trunk to ground. Be realistic with how much you can lift so that you don't pull a muscle before you make the first tee.

How We Test

We're here to help you find the perfect electric golf push cart to fit your needs.

To do that, we employ a thorough and fully independent testing process that leaves no feature unexplored, no detail unchecked, and no stone unturned.

Our Metrics

Electric golf push carts are tested head to head using rigorous protocols.

The metrics we consider when rating electric golf push carts include Features, Maneuverability, Folded Size, Ease of Use.

More Tips

  • There is a variety of features available. As with anything else, look for a cart that gives you what you need without overcharging for features you don’t need.
  • The Best Electric Golf Push Carts have 360-degree rotation wheels, make turning on a dime effortless.
  • If you use a stand bag, you’ll want to verify that the cart can hold your bag upright throughout your round.
  • Look for a cart with adjustable handles to help ensure you can maneuver it comfortably when it’s not driving itself.
  • When purchasing an electric push cart, verify the manufacturer has a local distributor. It makes getting your cart repaired or obtaining replacement parts easier.

The Best Electric Golf Push Cart of 2022 – FAQ

Q: Should I get a manual or a remote-controlled cart?

A: Manual carts do the job if you’re just looking to take weight off your back. If you want something completely hands-free and effortless—almost like you’re playing with a caddie—remote-controlled carts are the way to go.

Q: How much does a replacement electric golf cart battery cost?

A: If your battery has outlasted the warranty, a replacement will cost $315 to $420 depending on the manufacturer.

Q: How does an electric cart work?

A: Electric golf push carts are powered by small batteries. Depending on the battery type, you should get two to five seasons out of the battery depending on how many rounds you play.

Q: Are electric trolleys allowed on every golf course?

A: Not all courses allow them. Before playing a new course, check with the pro shop to confirm that they are allowed.

      Comments on the Caddytrek: my wife has had the follow me caddytrek for 4 years now and the thing is rock solid. This trolley needs to be tested as it is a great unit. As far as the V2 Alphard on a Rovic, there was a comment about stability. I have had mine for 3 years and it is rock solid. I have both a Rovic and a clic gear and my unit is on the Rovic. Now, if I had the V1 Alphard unit, The clic gear would be better because of the fixed wheel. V1 on a Rovic equals continuous course corrections as it wonders all over which is annoying..

      I purchased the MGI ZIP Navigator after researching and asking current owners at my club. One owner had actually ran his ZIP into a creek and it still works without issues! I belong to a VERY hilly course and have tilted the ZIP over a few times but the trick to most is to weight down the front of the cart bag with ice/drinks or hand weights….on a VERY hilly course….or just grab the handle and follow it up steep inclines. I now really enjoy walking 18 with my teenager (carries) and I can hold all the drinks and any extra stuff for him too! I can easily get 36 holes but normally charge after every use. Wish I had this years ago. MGI & COSTO etc do offer discounts and freebies with packages sometimes. Worth every penny. New irons will have to wait.

      You mentioned weight in a tip but it would be good to have the weights in the comparison table as they can be quite heavy to lift.. Also consider if they lock when folded so easier to pick up and whether they have a handle to pick up with, rather than having to put your hands underneath which can be quite dirty. Ta.

      I’ve not used an electronic cart and I wonder about stability. Last thing any of us want for a cart with my bag to be cartwheeling. So, I have the following questions?

      * do they have sensors to detect ground that is not safe (rough cart paths, roots, or drops/steps) or avoid obstacles (i.e. yardage or hazard stakes or small trees).. My robotic vacuum can do this.
      * do they have sensors to detect tipping points and take the appropriate actions
      * how are they on slopes (up and down) and wet turf. Last thing I want is a runaway or out of control cart
      * Do those that work with GPS or have access to the course layout know where the greens start so they don’t go onto the greens?

      Thanks….

      Every electric cart is different with different features. However, they do not have sensors for trees, routes etc. You control the cart with a remote.
      – So carts like MGI and eWheels V2 have gyro tech to keep it straight on side hills.
      – Motocaddy have different wheels for different weather conditions
      – If you are worried about stability, top 5 carts do well with cart bag stability. Motocaddy has a bag and cart combo that ensures no twisting at all thanks to their easy lock

      You missed the best MGI cart – the Zip All terrain, has two wheels at the front as opposed to the single on the Zip – almost impossible to roll, packs away literally as small, throw in a long list of accessories, 24V 380Wh Lithium Battery and remote and you have a clear winner. Best Golf improvement item I have ever bought – period

      I agree with Albatrossx3. The Caddytrek follow cart is excellent. The follow me feature is spot on. I purchased one for my wife and now there are 7 carts like it on our course as people tried it. When you do these reviews, please read comments online. Stewart golf doesn’t have a great rep for customer service. Caddytrek does well in customer satisfaction. If you want to manually use the remote for steering, it has the best remote out there.

      I use an Alphard V1 that I converted to a V2 with their conversion unit. I second using it with a Rovic as steering it is a dream. This is my third electric cart and I will use it forever.

      The problem with all the carts you reviewed is none of them seem to have copied the “body” of push carts that have been developing for years. No extra storage centers, ball holders etc on the “stalk” that houses the electronics. Also, while they advertise a number of holes, try pushing some of those carts with their little handles if the battery fails. Murphy’s law right? Trust me it happens. My first cart stopped at the farthest place from the clubhouse and it didn’t freewheel. Had to call the boys to bring out a riding cart.

      The review should also cover the following questions. 1. Does it have a gyro for straight tracking? 2. Does it have a brake? What accessories can be attached easily? Does the cart have auto shutoff if it gets out of range? What is the range? Can the wheels “free wheel” if the battery is turned off?

      I also use the Caddytrek, and it’s great. Doesn’t seem to have the issues the Stewart has, and is half the price. Battery does 36 holes on my course. I will disagree with Albatross – I use a C130S bag, and the Caddytrek doesn’t hold it very well, always rotated a bit due to the “foot” for the legs. I agree with Donald that the accessories are not nearly as well developed as standard push carts.

      If someone is looking for a cart with follow mode, I would highly recommend they check out the Caddytrek.

      I am not a fan of MGI for customer service or the ownership but the ZIP is the best option available if you love to walk. Having owned the M7 and MGI ZIP I have no idea why anyone would choose a cart without a gyroscope. My M7 needed constant babysitting and always tracked a little one way or the other necessitating constant re-direction. The gyroscope in the ZIP allows me to set it in motion and pay no attention until we reach my ball because it stays on track and never wanders like the M7.

      I’ve had a Zip for 18 months and love it. When my remote battery failed to accept a charge last week (2 yr. warranty), I called MGI. Phone was answered almost immediately and told I would be transferred to someone who handles warranty issues. The transfer failed–I was cut off–and less than a minute later the person who I was attempting to transfer to called ME back. She apologized, looked up my registration, and said I would have a new remote in my hands in two days. And I did. Best customer service I’ve experienced in years.

      At my club, almost all types of electric “trolleys” are in play. Overwhelmingly the Alphard V2 trumps the others in terms of cost and ease of use. I added the e-wheels to my 15 year old Clic Gear in 20 min. for $800 Compare that to the $2K to get into the non-follow Stewart and $3K for the follow Stewart. My golf buddy’s Stewart has now followed him into deep sand traps, a barranca, and a water hazard–great huh? The Alphard gyro and importantly, downhill auto braking are FAR superior to ANY others especially on hilly courses with hills and winding cart paths. I have not had a problem even without a swiveling front wheel. Almost no one can use the remote follow mode on any of these carts because they get a stiff neck checking behind to see if their cart is really following! Alphard will likely replace it’s cumbersome “lanyard” and will be coming out with an add-on “caddy mode” which I believe will be called Sidekick (already in trials) and will wirelessly allow the cart to roll ALONGSIDE the player. The decision here is both financially and brainlessly obvious–$ 800 v2 now, caddy mode add-on later

      I concur with Dr. Tee. I have had a V2 for a year now and have 80 plus rounds on it. I had a Clicgear 3.5 trolley which I liked and really appreciated being able to adapt the V2 to it. I don’t have the follow feature and don’t mind keeping it in front of me and steering with a remote. That way I can see if something falls off my trolley. And, should I decide to purchase a new trolley in the future, I only need to order new brackets for that trolley and can continue to use my V2. If you already have a trolley and are considering an electronic trolley, I highly recommend the V2.

      I have used the ALPHARD EWHEELS CLUB BOOSTER for several years, and just upgraded to the V2. I cannot tell you how well this works and how pleased I am in purchasing this golf product. I very much enjoy walking during my round, but pushing or pulling a cart was becoming tedious and tiring. ALPHARD EWHEELS CLUB BOOSTER V2 makes golfing fun again!

      Great review. I have playing partners who have the Motorcaddy M7, MGI Navigator Remote, and the Forecaddy follow me. Undoubtedly, the M7 & MGI are better carts than the Forecaddy. Follow me. One of my playing partners said he made a mistake purchasing the Forecaddy and now has an MGI Navigator Remote. I don’t know about the Stewart Golf Electric Follow Trolleys, but one of the complaints was the lack of maneuverability of the Forecaddy. He went on to say that the follow-me feature was genuinely overrated. He now loves the remote distance of his MGI.

      Alphard V2 with the TFS on a Clckgear 3.5+ or 4 with the Alphard front-wheel adaptors. And I love it. If you have a Rovic with the 360 front wheel this will work even better but you sacrifice some stability.. That’s why I like my setup better and have all the attachments I’m comfortable with. YMMV.
