Off to the course? We pick the best cars for golfers

Off to the course? We pick the best cars for golfers

By Swansway Motor Group 29-11-2018


We have created a list of Cars that we think will be perfect for you and your golfing equipment.

Golf. It’s a game that brings with it a huge amount of prestige, competition and, at times, frustration.

It also brings with it a huge amount of equipment, from bags and clubs to trolleys and clothing. The golf club car park is usually a lion’s den of vehicles, with each one trying to outdo the other. However, if what you want is a comfortable and spacious way of getting to the club, then which car should you go for? We’ve picked five of the best.

Jaguar F-Pace

It’s big, smartly styled and has that all-important brand image. The F-Pace is also exceptionally good to drive, and will make the journey home from the club just as good as the game itself.

With a range of engines to choose from, the F-Pace can be tailored to your needs – there’s even a powerful supercharged V6 petrol available if you’re looking for something sportier.

A big boot is a must for golfers, and thankfully the F-Pace has just that. It’s also got a decent amount of room in the back, so if you’re giving fellow players a lift it won’t be too much of a squeeze.

Honda NSX

Okay, so a £130,000 hybrid sports car may not be the most practical of golfing cars, but the rear compartment area is just the right size for a set of clubs.

With dramatic styling you’ll certainly stand out from the rest of the golfing crowd, and with over 500bhp on tap you’ll get home quicker than them, too.

Highlighted as a ‘usable’ sports car, the NSX won’t be a struggle to drive every day, although with just two seats you won’t be able to bring all your teammates along for the ride.

Mercedes S-Class

The S-Class is the epitome of luxury when it comes to saloon cars. With engines ranging from a 3.0-litre diesel to a 6.2-litre V8 petrol, there’s something for everyone. It’s also got an impressively usable boot – enough for two sets of clubs – meaning that you won’t have to worry about getting all your equipment to the tee.

The S-Class is expensive – prices start at around £68,000 – but it’s a car that carries with it all of the prestige associated with some of the most famous golf courses in the world. If you were looking for the car equivalent of St.Andrews, you’d be hard pressed to do better than the Mercedes S-Class.

Maserati Ghibli

There’s a certain something that comes with a Maserati. The Ghibli brings practicality to the table, offering a spacious interior and a good-size boot.

The brand prestige that comes with it is second to none, too, and almost everyone will recognise the trident on the bonnet. It’s got a good amount of interior storage too, with plenty of room for tees, balls and shoes.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

The 6 Series Gran Coupe is a sleek five-door, designed to offer the practicality of a saloon with the good looks of a coupe. Because of this, it’s got a little more room than you’d expect. You can easily fit two sets of clubs in the boot, and thanks to folding rear seats you can get one extra set in if you need to as well.

With an incredibly solid interior, the 6 Series is a comfortable place to be, and you can even get three passengers in the back if you need to. That centre seat may be best left for shorter journeys; it’ll be a little bit tight for larger passengers.

If you happen to tick every box on the options list, the 6 Series can become perilously close to a £100,000 car. That said, it’ll be one that you can use each and every day, and won’t be difficult to get over speedbumps that usually grant entrance to golf clubs. With good looks and that BMW badge on the front, there’s no doubt that you’ll be getting asked for lifts in the pro shop.
