The trouble with giving golf equipment as a Christmas present is that many players won’t use it until well into the New Year… well not with GoKart.

The award-winning powered trolley company has announced it will be giving away a set of Hedgehog wheels with every GoKart bought untilJanuary 1, meaning golfers can get out on the fairways throughout winter.

Many golf clubs ban electric trolleys from their courses during times of bad weather but Hedgehog’s patented stud design is accepted by greenkeepers all over the world.

So now golfers can not only get one of the most stylish, best-performing, user-friendly trolleys on the market for just £244, they also get an additional set of three Hedgehog wheels meaning they can use it all-year round.

And, for only £40, golfers can upgrade to the new Automatic model which makes life even easier, as it has no fiddly dials or switches to master; users just have to hold the handle and it will perfectly match their pace – and stay at that speed it even they let go.

Weighing in at just 8.2kg GoKart is as easy to lift as it is to set up, with no fiddly catches to master: just slot the battery into the trolley frame and strap on your bag.

The powerful 230W motor can maintain a jogging pace if needed and comfortably takes the steepest of golf-course terrain in its stride, and, after a round, the trolley can be swiftly folded to fit in any boot, reducing to just 26x58x61cm.

GoKart customers also benefit from unrivalled customer service including a two-year warranty, a complimentary courtesy kart if yours is out of action, and a 28-day trial period, at the end of which a full refund can be obtained even if it was used every day.

The GoKart retails at just £244, with the Automatic feature available as an optional extra for a further £40. The Hedgehog wheels offer is available while stocks last.
