Leading trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf has conducted a survey of the owners of its range-toping X9 Follow power trolley and discovered that almost 70% of them believed that they had lowered their handicap as a direct result on using the remote-controlled model.

The survey revealed that a significant majority of customer’s handicaps have improved since they started using a Stewart machine – by an average of three strokes from an average 15 handicap – and 94% of owners said that their Stewart trolley was ‘an important part of their golf equipment’.

Stewart Golf’s X9 Follow customers have reduced their handicap by an average of three shots

The survey also found that more than nine out of ten Stewart Golf customers would recommend the British manufacturer to a fellow golfer.

When it came to the flagship X9 Follow model, the majority of owners said they felt more relaxed on the course, feel they have more preparation time, walk less distance and suffer less back and joint pain.

Stewart Golf MD David Funnell said: “Our machines are unapologetically premium, but we have long maintained that our customers are serious golfers, as opposed to just wealthy hackers! Golfers invest in Stewart machines because they believe our technology will help their game.”

The company invited a group of customers to Moor Park Golf Club to learn more about their experience with the X9 Follow. A video presented by sports broadcaster Georgie Bingham is available at now.

Stewart Golf has also launched a special Christmas golf bag promotion that enables any European customer buying a new X9 Follow between now and December 31 to claim a free Stewart Golf cart bag of their choice, worth up to £199. These can include the  SuperLight, SportDrive and StaffPro cart bags. Qualifying customers can claim their free bag, while stocks last, at
