Ben Sayers Electric Golf Trolley Review [Which To Avoid]

Ben Sayers golf has been making golf equipment since 1873, such as golf clubs including the M11 range. So it’s safe to say, they know a thing or two about what goes into good quality products.

Now they might not have the golf clubs which once dominated the golf market anymore, but they do however make a very affordable range of electric golf trolleys.

Ben Sayers Electric Trolley Review

Ben Sayers Electric Golf Trolley

I knew that Ben Sayers had once been a great in the golf club market but had fallen away as time and technology went on. So when I saw that they now have a range of electric golf trolleys, I knew that I had to give them a try.

Key Features

The Ben Sayers golf trolley range has a choice of three different models. A lead battery, lithium battery and remote control electric golf cart.

  • 200W motor
  • Lead acid or lithium, 18 or 36-hole battery
  • Lightweight aluminium frame
  • Speed control dial with pre-set distance function
  • Includes free accessories, such as accessory station, scorecard holder, drinks holder, umbrella holder, rain cover, and trolley carry bag
  • One-year warranty on trolleys

The first thing to mention about the Ben Sayers electric trolleys is the price. For the cheapest traditional lead acid battery option you’ll be paying just under £300. The lithium option is slightly more at around £370 and if you want one with a remote control, you’re looking at around £600.

With the free accessory pack worth over £100 thrown in as well, you’re getting a great value product. When you compare this to other similar options on the market, a basic Motocaddy will cost you around £200 more.

The trolleys are made with a super lightweight aluminium frame, which means its very moveable and provide easy transportation. The compact golf trolley is also simple to set up and with just a few clicks, you’re ready to go.

The basic trolleys (non-remote control) feature a super-simple-to-use control panel that offers a single on/off button, a nine-speed control dial and pre-set distance function.

The more expensive remote control option has a seven-speed dial, with the same preset functions, but also lets you adjust the trolley from up to 150 metres away.

Our Verdict

Having tested out the Ben Sayers Lithium Battery Electric Trolley it’s clear to see that it’s a really good option for a lot of golfers.

Its price point is a very good one and brings what is an expensive nice-to-have, to a far broader audience. With the inclusion of the accessory packs, it really does mean you get a lot for your money.

For me, having tested out the lithium option, I would recommend staying away from the traditional lead acid battery model.

Lithium batteries are in a different league to a lead acid battery for many reasons. Yes, the price is more, but with lithium, you’re getting a much lighter and more robust battery than can last you up to five times as long.

For the sake of roughly an extra £80, it’s worth spending that little bit more for a battery that will stand the test of time.

Having used the 18-hole lithium option, it comfortably managed 18 holes of golf and felt like it had plenty left in the tank.

The trolleys are set up well and for the price, it seems like you get a pretty sturdy golf trolley. The look and design do feel a little on the cheaper side of things, but again, for the price, I can’t really fault the sturdy aluminium frame construction.

The power is also a very capable one. The 200W motor seemed to cope well with any slopes it came across which is always important when assessing an electric golf trolley.

If I had to find a fault with the Ben Sayers electric golf trolley, it would be the lack of a brake. If you’re playing a hilly course, this could be an issue.

Overall, I’d certainly recommend the Ben Sayers electric golf trolley and believe it is the best electric golf trolley for the budget market. The Ben Sayers Lithium Battery Electric Trolley is a great choice for a lot of golfers out there, primarily new golfers or ones that aren’t playing every day of the week.

If you’re getting a couple of rounds of golf a week in, I’d suggest going for a more premium model such as a Motocaddy just for increased longevity and a more solid build.

I’d also stay away from the remote control option from Ben Sayers. It’s a nice to have, but for an extra £200+ it doesn’t really bring in enough value for me.

Final Thoughts

That rounds off our look at the Ben Sayers electric golf trolley. It’s a top pick for many new or casual golfers looking to take away the strains of carrying a bag.
