Although it makes not one bit of difference once you are actually out on the golf course, the compactness of a golf trolley is without doubt one of it's main selling points. How easy it to transport? How lightweight is it? Will it fit in my boot? Will it fit in my boot, alongside my golf clubs... questions all too familiar to golf club professionals around the country.
As the world's leading electronic trolley company, PowaKaddy have been answering these questions for many years bringing weight-saving, size-efficient trolleys to the market without compromising on functionality or quality. Their latest answer to these questions comes in the form of the ground-breaking CT range promising ultra-compact, lightweight design with the introduction of the completely remodelled 2020 Compact range.
Firstly a Simple-2-Fold system allows the CT6 and CT6 GPS to fold down 20% smaller than the previous models and an impressive 35% smaller than their nearest competitor. This sounds extremely impressive already. I tested the C2i GPS Trolley last spring and was extremely impressed at how compact it folded - fitting into the boot of a Vauxhall Corsa alongside a set of clubs with ease.
The all-new, low-profile PowaFrame chassis is said to fit into even the smallest of car boots, making this the perfect trolley for the golfer who puts a premium on storage and convenience.
With the new CT range, style has also been made a priority. Engineered to take ultra-compact performance to an entirely new level, the 2020 CT range gives golfers the opportunity to enjoy smarter power. PowaKaddy’s full re-branding sees bold new styling and industry-leading construction combine to produce their most advanced Compact range yet.
David Catford, PowaKaddy's CEO, commented:
"The Compact range has been a huge success since its inception in 2017 and we are proud to introduce the second generation of our extremely popular GPS model. There are some major technological advancements in the new range and after two years of design and development, we believe our fantastic team of engineers have created not only the most compact electric trolley on the market, but also the most intelligent.”
The new CT Range features two new models:
CT6 GPS Trolley
This is the smallest ultra-compact electric trolley in the world and therefore spearheads the 2020 Compact range. It boasts an all-new design, complete with a fully-integrated GPS system which can be accessed via the 2.8” full-colour widescreen display on the trolley’s high-tech handle. The trolley also features stylish new Gunmetal Compact accents and new cleverly folding inverted wheels.
As well as automatically locating the golf course you are playing on, the CT6 GPS offers an auto hole advance feature as well as an automatic distance function (ADF) that allows you to set the stopping distance of your trolley to the desired yardage.

The new CT6 trolley benefits from a stylish, premium gunmetal metallic frame that weighing in at just 9.8 kilograms. This is impressive and 5% lighter than the previous Compact model, which was already pretty light.
An integrated carry handle makes transportation effortless while the soft touch handle can be easily adjusted to sit at the perfect height for the golfer.
