Best Golf Push Trolleys

Best for storage

Big Max’s success across Europe is based on its innovation and style, but most of all its practicality on the course. With designs across its bag and trolley range to suit every type of golfer, this European giant is well worth a look next time you’re in the market for a new golf bag or trolley.

The Big Max Autofold FF stores better than 95% of the golf push trolleys on the market. Two simple movements see all the wheels automatically flip under the trolley for storage, and with a flick of the handle lock, it opens again in an instant.

A large storage compartment adds to the practical simplicity while accessory points and footbrakes finish off this simple innovation.

An Easy-Clip bag strap system makes it straightforward to adjust and fit the majority of bags to the trolley which folds down to a super compact 60 x 38 x 33cm, making for effortless transport and storage.

This is the Bentley of golf push trolleys. Every part of the R1 is designed and assembled in the UK, with the frame made from 6063-TG Aerospace-grade aluminium!

Stewart say their “rack and pinion” driven folding mechanism, which is similar to what you’d find in a car’s steering system, is superior to the competition. We certainly found it quick and easy to unfold and fold during testing and it folds down to a very competitive size.

The R1-S has a delightful soft-touch handle, a reliable and easy-to-use foot brake and it is fully adjustable to fit different golf bags. At 8.1kg it is among the heavier options we’ve selected here, but it’s barely noticeable, such is the quality of the overall package.

There are also 10 different colour combinations thanks to two frames (black, white) and five wheel options (black, white, green, red, blue).
Weight: 8.1kg
Folded Size: 570mm x 460mm x 360mm
Warranty: Two years
Main Accessories: Quick-release wheels; foot brake; soft-touch handle; drinks holder, magnetic ball marker, golf ball holder, umbrella holder
A winner in our annual TG Editor’s Choice Awards, the Cube has had a makeover and it’s now 40% smaller than Motocaddy’s entry-level Z1 push trolley.

Simple to use thanks to its two-step folding system, this is the king of compacts and is a great idea if car boot space is at a premium or garage storage space is tight. Quick-release wheels free up even more space.

The oversize wheels and rubber tires help the trolley handles varying terrains with ease, while the foot parking brake ensures you won’t be chasing it across undulating courses.

It’s impressively light at 6.8kg and is available in three colour combinations: graphite-blue, graphite-lime, and graphite-red.

Winner of a Today’s Golfer Editor’s Choice Award, the DLX-Lite FF is extremely lightweight and has been designed with optimal storage in mind.

Thanks to an ingenious flat-fold design that allows it to fold down to only 20 centimetres deep so it can be squeezed into the very tightest of spaces. 

Available in gunmetal with yellow or red trim, the Key Lock System ensures your PowaKaddy bag cannot tip or swivel, while strong, adjustable straps make it suitable for use with bags from other manufacturers.

This is one of the best PowaKaddy golf trolleys.

One of those golfers who’s always rushing to get to the tee? Then it would be best if you had this trolley.

The Nitron sets itself up at the push of a button thanks to Nitrogen-powered pistons inside the frame, meaning no more fiddly assembly or trapped fingers! It also folds down to an impressively small size for ease of transportation and storage and, considering the tech, weighs in at a relatively lightweight 7.6kg.

The brake is conveniently operated via the handle and BagBoy say their patented Top-Lok Technology ensures a secure attachment of all trolley bags.

And while some brands ask you to buy accessories separately, the Nitron comes with umbrella, drinks and mobile phone holders, along with integrated umbrella storage. There’s also a pencil and scorecard holder, along with golf ball storage and an extra-large pocket for your glove and headcovers.

The Nitron trolley is available in eight colours: grey-lime, grey-pink, black-red, graphite-charcoal, lime, navy-red, silver-black, white-blue.

The 360 part of Axglo’s popular Tri range comes from the manoeuvrability of its front wheel which allows for a greater degree of flexibility as you traverse the varied landscapes found on our great and good golf courses.

It is typical of a company that is trying its hardest to stand out in a crowded marketplace and that normally means good news for the consumer. 

The Tri-360 V2 also includes a gliding system which eliminates the possibility of your trolley being scratched during the opening and closing process.
Weight: 7.4kg

Another excellent push trolley that has put a lot of stock in making itself very easy to put up. FastFold by name and certainly by nature.

The large wheels will also appeal to many who like that extra assurance regarding stability and it certainly covers all types of ground in an impressive manner. There are also a multitude of storage options and it will easily cope with the largest golf bag.

Some will consider this beast from Clicgear over-engineered but the Hong Kong-based company claims it is just responding to customer feedback, which suggested a bigger and bolder push trolley was required.

And Clicgear has certainly done that with the 8.0+. This is the trolley you would want if you were playing golf in the Rocky Mountains. It’s tougher than a Gurkha on a mission.

Available in black, blue, and silver, its unique four-wheel folding mechanism makes a potentially unwieldy bit of kit very manageable. At 10 kilograms it is at the top end in terms of weight but if you don’t mind that, this is a push trolley that provides a wonderful ride and has been beautifully designed to be super sturdy but also very steerable.
Weight: 10kg
Folded Size; 381mm x 686mm x 432mm

We all know a lot of thought goes into making every golf trolley but you really feel it from this iCart offering.

All will appreciate the lengths gone to ensure any bag will fit on here comfortably and the patented Quik-Lok folding system makes it incredibly easy to put up and down.

Folded down it’s not the smallest but for those of us with larger-than-average cars this is not an issue while ease of use and durability, which this has in spades, is much more important. 
Weight: 7.2kg
Folded Size: 780mm x 335mm x 420mm

The TwinLine’s easy-to-operate footbrake keeps your push trolley exactly where you leave it, with the soft-touch telescopic handle quickly adjustable to suit your height. It has also been designed to provide comfort for both right and left-handed golfers.

The Twinline 5 is available in two colours (classic black, and polar white) and comes with a one-year warranty.

A rejigged version of the successful Cube, it also additionally offers a dedicated soft-lined, water-resistant mobile phone storage area, and an ergonomic soft-touch handle, that is easily height adjustable.

A Motocaddy trolley for less than £160… wow. And it’s an impressive piece of kit, too.

The Z1 is Motocaddy’s entry-level model and a perfect choice for budget-conscious golfers. It’s not the most compact trolley in the world but it weighs in at just 6kg.

The Z1, which comes in graphite-blue and graphite-red, has a simple two-step folding system and quick-release wheels to help with transportation and storage, while the comfortable handle has three height settings.

Like those found on Micra and P1, oversize wheels and maintenance-free rubber tyres make it a doddle to use across varying course terrains, and the Easilock connection system keeps Motocaddy bags secure without a lower strap. Never fear if you don’t have a matching bag – additional supports ensure the trolley is fully compatible with all brands’ offerings.

You get plenty of storage for your money with drink, scorecard, ball, and tee holders, plus a covered accessory compartment for your glove and valuables.

Push Golf Trolleys: What to consider when buying a golf trolley

Push trolleys and electric golf trolleys are considered beneficial to your performance and body.

Carrying your golf bag requires you to lift and set down your clubs up to 100 times a round, placing extra weight and stress on your body which can lead to fatigue and, in some cases, injury.

And while many bag carriers claim that carrying is better for their health and fitness, Dr Neil Wolkodoff, medical director of the Colorado Centre for Health & Sports Science, believes the benefits are less pronounced than they might think.

If professional golfers don't carry their clubs, why would you?

His research showed that over nine holes, golfers who carried clubs burned 721 calories, opposed to the 718 calories burned by someone who pushed their clubs.

Dr Wolkodoff said: “People who push a cart have a lot fewer health issues and a lot less potential for issues. The golf swing is tough on the back no matter how you look at it. If you can push a cart and keep one more stress away from the back, that’s a great thing.”

But, assuming you choose to follow the doctor’s orders, should you buy an electric or push model? Our buying guide is here to help.


With any product we always recommend that you set your budget before starting your shopping. That’s more important than ever when it comes to trolleys with such a huge price differential between the cheapest and most expensive trolleys.

The good news is that there is a model for everyone, from those of you looking to spend around £100, right up to those of you willing to spend four figures. Just ensure you shop within your requirements and means.


Having set your budget, the next thing to consider is whether you want (and need) an electric trolley or push trolley. Electric options cost more money but come with a lot more features and are far easier to manoeuvre, especially if you play undulating courses. Push trolleys are much cheaper, but are usually lighter, include more storage and are very easy to use. Plus, you don’t have to remember to charge the battery before your round!


Depending on how much you want to spend and what you need, there are a whole host of features available on golf trolleys. Some are multi-functional whereas some just look to perform as a trolley.

All electric models come with adjustable speed control, but some will include the ability to send your trolley off a set distance before it stops. Then there are models with touchscreen GPS functionality, normally pre-loaded with tens of thousands of courses across the globe, which saves you buying a separate handheld GPS or rangefinder. Many now include shot-tracking technology, so you can track your data and see where you need to improve. You’ll also find things like scorecards, shot measurements and even the ability to link your phone and receive notifications via the LCD screens while you’re on the course.

Where push trolleys often beat the best electric trolleys is the amount of storage included as standard. Many have space for your phone, balls, tees, valuables, drink, and even an umbrella. Most electric models require you to spend additional money on accessories stations which can be attached.

Ease of use and size

The reason you’re buying a trolley is to make life easier when moving around on the course, so a trolley that isn’t easy to use is pointless. But, as well as being easy to manoeuvre, they need to be easy to fold and unfold and store. Most modern models feature simple one or two-step folding and unfolding processes and are surprisingly lightweight.

Be sure to consider the size. If you can fit your trolley and clubs in your car then it’s not going to be right for you. And, equally, if storage space is at a premium at home then make sure you choose a more compact model or a model where the wheels can be easily removed.


As mentioned above, push trolleys include far more storage space as standard than most electric golf trolleys so make sure you’re aware of this. Of course, that shouldn’t stop you from buying an electric model if it suits your needs, and cart bags come with plenty of storage space, but if you want to add an umbrella holder, GPS holder, or something to hold your drink then you could be looking at further expense.


Buying one of the best golf trolleys can be a big investment so you’ll want it to last a long time and deal with the various conditions we golfers face on the course – especially if you’re reading in Britain! Assuming your budget allows, invest in a model that’s made from strong materials like aluminum and, if you’re planning to play all year round, consider buying a set of winter wheels.


Many trolleys may only offer one colour option, but some brands do give you frame and wheel colour choices. Just make sure the trolley you choose is in a color and design you like and will still look how you want it to when you’ve got a bag on it.


If you’re making the move into golf trolleys then we’d always recommend buying a bag from the same brand that makes your trolley because it will have been designed to perfectly fit. Some brands, like Motocaddy, make hybrid bags that can be used both on their trolleys or as a stand/carry bag. Ideal if you travel overseas for golf or ever forget to charge the battery.


If you have decided to buy an electric trolley then make sure you consider the battery life. Most brands will offer a standard lithium battery or a more expensive extended lithium battery. In our experience, the standard batteries comfortably last far more than 18 holes. But if you’re someone who regularly plays 36 holes in a day or who wants to play more than one round across a weekend without charging, then we’d recommend investing slightly more in the longer-lasting model.


Golf trolleys are an expensive investment and, while it’s rare, they can go wrong because there’s a lot of tech involved. Most brands offer decent warranties and, if you’re buying an electric model, you’ll find you get a warranty for your trolley frame and a separate warranty for the battery. Just make sure you ask or research the warranty and its conditions before making your purchase.

Push Golf Trolleys: Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best golf trolley brand?

PowaKaddy and Motocaddy are the best-known and market-leading brands. But smaller brands like Bag Boy, Sun Mountain, Stewart Golf, and MGI Golf also make some quality golf trolleys.

Is an electric golf trolley better than a push golf trolley?

It really depends on your needs and budget.

Electric golf trolleys are more expensive than push trolleys due to the additional technology, mechanics, and lightweight, super-powerful lithium batteries. While a push trolley is far more beneficial than carrying, an electric trolley lightens the load even further.

Many electric trolleys can also do things like charge your phone and receive your messages and notifications via their screens, while the likes of Motocaddy and PowaKaddy even produce models that include GPS, saving you from buying a separate Distance Measuring Device (DMD).

Push trolleys do tend to be smaller and lighter than electric golf trolleys, which is handy if you’re short of space at home or in the car boot, and the lower price point may leave some valuable extra cash available to upgrade your golf clubs or equipment.

Do golf trolleys include all of the accessories I need?

It depends on the brand and model. Many of the best push trolleys have integrated stations with storage pouches and holders for an umbrella, drink, and scorecard included. Electric trolleys can often require you to buy the parts separately. Most brands have loads of accessories to choose from, including GPS and phone cradles, drinks and umbrella holders, rain covers, winter wheels, and trolley covers.

Do I need to buy a special golf bag for my trolley?

Ideally, yes. You can use your carry bag but it may not be as secure as the cart bags which trolleys are designed to hold. Most trolleys have specific attachments to ensure your cart bag stays perfectly in place, whereas a carry/stand bag can move about and impact your trolley’s performance.

If buying a Motocaddy or PowaKaddy, we’d always recommend purchasing one of the brand’s own cart bags as they have been designed to fit their trolleys perfectly and are exceptionally easy to attach and remove.

Which golf trolley is quicker and easier to fold and unfold?

Most push trolleys come with a simple, fast assembly process. Couple that with the lack of need to connect a battery and push trolleys suit those golfers who like to get going straight away when they arrive at the course. They also tend to be lighter than electric trolleys.

But the technology in electric trolleys is improving every year and, realistically, the difference in assembly time is negligible.

Are push golf trolleys suitable for undulating courses?

A push trolley is still going to be far more beneficial to your game and body than carrying your bag around a hilly golf course. It will prove a little more strenuous than an electric model, which, despite being heavier, does all of the hard work for you. Just make sure the battery is fully charged!

If your heart is set on a push trolley then the models we’ve highlighted below are extremely lightweight and all have easy-to-use brakes, so there’s no chance of your precious clubs trundling down a hill. There’s even a model with four wheels for extra stability on sidehills and tricky lies.

Whatever you do, try to avoid the old-fashioned pull golf trolley as these put additional strain on one side of your body.

Are push golf trolleys easier to transport and store than electric models?

Even in the high-tech, modern world, weight tends to be less of an issue with push trolleys due to the lack of motors and batteries. But size really depends on the folding technology. If boot and storage space is at a premium then be sure to check the size of the trolley folded down and measure your spaces before making a purchase. The last thing you want is to splash the cash and then find it doesn’t fit in your car with your clubs.

Most golf trolleys include easy-release wheels to make transportation, storage, and cleaning even easier.
