As you’re certainly aware, golf experienced tremendous golf during the past few years largely because it was one of very few organized activities that were permitted.
While being outside for 4 hours is great for your health, walking your rounds is even better. The only downside is that carrying your bag for 18 holes can really start to detract from your game, especially during that mid-summer heat.
Of the regular golfers surveyed in eight of the world’s top golf-playing nations, powered caddies were used by up to two thirds of golfers in some markets. In the US, there was still a strong preference for driving a cart but one in 10 used a powered caddy most frequently. Encouragingly 43% of US golfers surveyed are currently walking the course, and those who used powered caddies were not just satisfied with this method of transporting their clubs, but their satisfaction with this method was also much higher—76% very satisfied—than for golfers who used other methods—45% very satisfied.
During the past 2 years, Motocaddy has become the most considered electric caddy for purchase in the USA, while the innovative brand is the one most likely to be recommended to a friend by American golfers with experience of its products. Motocaddy’s study, The 2022 Motocaddy Reportfound that 48% of American golfers enjoyed walking their rounds without the strain of carrying their bags. A further 43% noted that golf becomes more enjoyable with an electric caddy and 28% of golfers attributed an improvement to his or her fitness.
Thanks to powered caddies, American golfers have also found they can play more golf and continue to play when fatigue or injury would typically restrict them. Over a third—39%—of golfers said that they were playing more golf as a result of owning an electric caddy with 49% of those surveyed wishing they had switched to one sooner.
Marketing Director, Oliver Church said:
“These results demonstrate the considerable impact Motocaddy has already made in the American market since its arrival in 2020… We constantly aim to develop industry-leading products with cutting edge technologies to make the game more enjoyable for everyone, and the findings from this survey will prove invaluable. With upcoming advancements to our award-winning M-Series range, we hope to see Motocaddy further solidify its reputation in the American market moving forward.”
Findings from the survey were overwhelmingly positive for Motocaddy, with three of the features on the brand’s compact M-Series models regarded as the most important consideration for American golfers when purchasing a new powered caddy: descent speed control, GPS and a reliable hands-free remote control. Each of these desirable modern features is incorporated across the popular M7 REMOTE and M5 GPS DHC models currently available.
Improved scoring and performance can often be attributed to the regular use of a powered caddy, with nearly half playing more often (46%) and nearly a third playing better when using one. Equally importantly, powered caddies are credited with helping golfers sustain the same amount of play when fatigue or injury might have otherwise stopped or reduced their playing time.
With 93% of powered caddy owners being ‘very or quite’ satisfied with their purchase, they are also likely to believe that a powered caddy represents a better investment in their game than buying a new set of clubs. As a result, a Motocaddy might want to be on your 2022 birthday or Father’s Day shortlist.
