Spring is here and you are itching to get out to the golf course. Yet before you grab your golf bag, you have to get your electric golf caddy prepped so you can have an easier time walking the course. We have gathered together this important checklist to use so your electric golf caddy will be up and running smoothly for all your trips out to the links.
Cleaning and Maintenance
When taking it out from the storage bag, give it a good cleaning to remove dirt, grass and grime left over from last year. Check all the mountings and tighten screws that may have come loose. You also want to load on your golf bag (with clubs inside) to inspect all restraints and straps.
Checking the Battery
Since the battery was in storage, it may have a lost some of its charge. You want to top off the battery charge. Also, don’t forget to change or recharge the batteries for the remote control if you have a remote-controlled caddy. After the battery is charged, you want to inspect the cable connections and tighten them. Then mount the caddy battery to evaluate the retainer and connections for any issues.
Take your electric golf caddy outside to check the caddy wheels. You want to listen for any unusual noises, watch for wheel turning issues and check for any wheel mounting problems. It is also a great opportunity to adjust the tracking. With remote-controlled electric caddies, this is your opportunity to ensure all remote control functions are working properly.
Getting your electric golf caddy prepped and ready will allow you to notice any problems that need immediate repair. Then you won’t have to worry about the caddy breaking down along the golf course as you have to lug everything back to the car.
