Motocaddy M3 GPS Electric Trolley Review
Motocaddy is renowned for producing some of the best electric golf trolleys on the market, so I was eager to see how its M3 GPS electric trolley performed. It sits somewhere in the middle of its extensive line-up so could act as the perfect entry point for newcomers to the trolley game seeking strategic assistance, or it could just as easily suit those looking for a premium product that comes in at a more digestible price point. As for me, I fall into the former category and was suitably impressed by what was on offer, even after the novelty of the experience had worn off.
The first thing that struck me was how compact it was when folded down. Its official dimensions are 650mm (L) x 470mm (W) x 410mm (H).

It’s more than enough options for all types of player and course. I never had any issues with the stability and found it was capable of handling the links terrain of Royal Troon with aplomb. It even has a USB charging port and Adjustable Distance Control, so you can set the trolley off towards the next tee up to 60 yards in five-yard increments.
Perhaps the aspect I was most impressed with, however, was the GPS…
