The 9 Best Remote Control Golf Carts
This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in November of 2018. If you enjoy walking the greens, but prefer not to deal with the hassle of carrying all those heavy clubs, you can transport them on one of these electric golf caddies. Our versatile selection includes models offering collapsible designs and long-lasting batteries, and some of these robotic caddies are even equipped with the ability to automatically follow you wherever you go on the course. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

In making our selections for this update, we looked for features that would enhance ease of use, as well as robust construction, since even the more affordable of these products still aren't cheap, so they should last a long time. It was also important to us that users could adjust many functions, like speed, turning radius, and preset cruising distances.
The NovaCaddy X9RD impressed us because of its ability to climb slopes with up to 30-degree angles, and the fact that its remote has a 120-yard operation range, allowing one to control it from a far distance. We eliminated the Spin It Easy Trek because the slightest incline or off-kilter bag causes it to tip over. The Cart Tek GRi also struggles with balance issues, so we removed it as well. In the place of the two we took off, we added the Caddytrek R2 Cabin Fever, which does well on uneven terrain, and the Sun Mountain 2020 RC1, which has four wide-set wheels to keep it stable.
Lugging a golf cart to and from the course can be a hassle, so we like that the MGI Zip Navigator, the Stewart X9, and the NovaCaddy X9RD fold up for portability. If you worry about fitting your bag onto one of these, you may like the strap and cam lever on the Sun Mountain 2020 RC1, which make it easy to secure your belongings to the cart. Should you be more concerned about a dead battery leaving you with a non-functioning unit, you might like that the Bat-Caddy X3R is easy to manually push if needed.

Included the Stewart X9 for its patented follow technology and the MGI Zip Navigator due to the Gyroscope Straight Tracker technology and swiveling front wheel. Ultrasound and radio frequency signals allow the FTR Caddytrek R2 to anticipate and react to a person's movements. Also added the Bat-Caddy X4R due to its manual rheostat controls.
Moto Golf Motocaddy M7 The Moto Golf Motocaddy M7 weighs just over 28 pounds and folds up compactly, making it easy to put in your car and transport it to the course. It has downhill speed control, two 230-watt motors, and a USB charging port for your smart device. The front-wheel swivels 360 degrees and the cart has a two-year warranty, while the battery has a five-year one. motogolf.com
