If you’re not a fan of carrying your golf clubs for 18 holes, a compact golf trolley may be the answer to your prayers!
Professional golfers on the PGA and European Tour may have a caddy to do this job for them but chances are you won’t. However, there are a great range of golf trolleys available on the market today which will do the job.
When considering which golf trolley to purchase, size is clearly going to be a factor. For many of us, we will be travelling to and from the golf course in a car without unlimited boot space. Once you throw your golf clubs in there, along with your golf shoes and a spare change of clothes, there’s not much space left for a golf trolley.
Fortunately, golf trolley manufacturers have put in the hours to develop trolleys with smart folding mechanisms meaning they can fit comfortably in the boot of your car. We’ve scoured the web for the smallest folding golf trolleys we can find to help you find your perfect solution!

What to consider when buying a golf trolley
While size is a serious factor when buying a golf trolley, there are other aspects to take into account too.
Push or Electric
Arguably the most important consideration aside from the size of the golf trolley is how it will travel around the golf course with you.
Electric golf trolleys are typically a little bigger than push golf trolleys and they will come at a premium price. However, if you don’t want to do any of the work and prefer a nice relaxing game of golf then it’s worth the extra investment.
Even if you’re considering one of the smallest folding golf trolleys, you will still need to push it around the golf course. The likelihood is you will also need to travel with it from your home meaning packing the golf trolley into the car.
Unless you’re storing the trolley at your golf club, make sure you consider the weight. Not only will this help you in transporting the trolley from the home to the course, but it’ll also help you conserve energy on your round of golf.
Small folding golf trolleys tend to come in a choice of three different materials.
- Aluminium is one of the lightest materials available for golf trolleys and is therefore very popular. However, it does tend to dent easily so you will need to keep this in mind when using the trolley.
- Titanium is another lightweight metal used in the construction of golf trolleys and is tougher than aluminium.
- The third material often used in the manufacture of golf trolleys is steel. This is very robust but can weigh more than the other two options.
The stability of a golf trolley tends to be based around the number of wheels on the trolley and the quality of the brakes. For example, a two wheel trolley will generally not be as stable as a three wheel trolley.
A golf trolley which has strong brakes will give you peace of mind when you leave your bag next to the green that you won’t have to go running after it after a gust of wind!
Ease of Assembly
Most golf trolleys today are either three-piece detachable trolleys or fold-up designs. No modern golf trolley should be difficult to assemble but some can take longer than others due to their construction.
Some will allow the wheels to be removed and this can make storage and transportation easier but they do take a little longer to assemble. Think about what is important for you.
Finally, we come to the accessories. Golf trolleys come with a range of additional features including ball, tee and drinks holders.
If this is important to you, make sure you pick a brand that offers the accessories you’ll later require.
