Walking has made a resurgence in golf here in the US.  It has always been the preferred method for golfing since the game was invented in Scotland.  However as the golfing population has aged, course layout became more spread out and riding carts became the norm at golf courses, walking had become less popular.  COVID-19 changed the way we golf, by encouraging social distancing; walking came back in style.  While I have always preferred to walk, AZ golf, especially in the summer, almost requires golfers to take power carts.  However there are still numerous courses in the desert that are designed to allow walkers.  I don’t mind, even in the heat of summer with the Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart.  It reduces fatigue and makes walking the 5 miles of an 18 hole course relatively easy and very enjoyable.  Walking also improves my scores because I get into a good rhythm and pace that isn’t rushed or slow, just steady from shot to shot with time to think about the next shot.

The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart is new to the US market.  Electric trolleys (carts) have been used in other parts of the world for years, but haven’t been all that popular in the US.  That has changed recently with carts like this, their battery improvement and more affordable price point.  The M7 is one of the best on the market. 

The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart is well designed top to bottom.  The front wheels are free spinning wheels that stabilize the front of the cart.  The two large rear wheels have the motors connected to them which also serve as the steering wheels.  They work off the principle if you spin one wheel a little faster in a direction the cart turns.  It is “skid” steering.  There is a small 4th wheel that sticks out the back to prevent wheelies on hills and quick starts.  This cart is incredibly stable.  You have to go out of your way to tip it over.  It will most likely happen on a side hill when you hit a bump or something to cause it to become unbalanced.  If you watch where you drive and go up and down hills rather than across them, you shouldn’t ever have to worry about tipping the cart over.  You can always grab the handle too just in case it starts to tip.

The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart is all about the remote function.  There is a speed control dial and button on the handlebar to move the cart, but I rarely use that since the remote is so much easier and better for driving.  The remote has basic joystick buttons to move the cart forward, backward, left, right and stop.  The buttons are intuitive and straightforward, the only thing to remember is the forward button is not an accelerator, but an on button.  However the backward button is.  Meaning you don’t need to hold the forward button for the cart to move, but you do need to hold the reverse button for it to go in that direction.  The right and left buttons can be used in motion or when the cart is still.  They work like any “skid” steer does.  Small increments are possible, but doing a quick 360 is also easy if you hold the turn buttons down.  You can adjust the speed by tapping the forward button and it increases the speed 1 level.  The cart has speeds 1-9; 1 is barely moving, and 9 is a jog.  I usually have the cart at 4 to 5 speed for a nice brisk walking pace. 

The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart Dry-Series Bag has one specialty feature that pairs with the Motocaddy Dry-Series Cart Bag.  It has an EASILOCK anti-twist base receiver which is a molded holes that holds the bag slot with a couple metal pins to secure the bag to the Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart.  This is a great feature which also doesn’t interfere with other bags, but allows for more security with Motocaddy bags, but works great with other bags too.  The upper is held tight with bungee straps. Every cart, carry or stand bag will work on this cart.
The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart has a 28v battery that goes for more than 36 holes with ease.  I charged it day one, and have only charged it once since then just to be on the safe side.  The battery drops into the cart’s frame and has a plug that comes out of the battery to plug into the cart motors.  You can charge the battery right in the cart or you can remove the battery and charge it somewhere else.
 The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart folds up compactly enough to fit in the back of almost any car.  I drive a MINI Countryman and it fits ideal with a seat down in the back.  This allows for space for my bag too.  The cart weighs around 25lbs.  It isn’t light nor super easy to lift, but most golfers can accomplish this motion before and after their rounds.  It unfolds and folds with 2 levers; one on the lower section and one on the upper.
The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart also has some really nice accessories that make the cart even more useful for 18 holes.  The beverage holders, umbrella holder, the score cart glove box and the cell-phone holder all screw on or clip on to the cart.  They all function very nicely and are worth the investment to add-on to the cart.

Summary

The Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart is one of my favorite products of 2021.  I find myself wanting to walk, even in the heat of summer so I can use this cart.  It makes an enjoyable walk even better.  I realize that the cost of this cart might deter some, but if you consider what the add-on cost of a riding cart adds up to in 1 year, you could save those funds and buy a Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart.  Walking while playing golf is enjoyable, using the Motocaddy M7 Remote Cart is even more enjoyable.  Your back and scores will thank you.
