Adapting to a new generation of golfers

Best speakers for your golf cart

By Connor Brown

Music has been an increasingly big part of the golf experience. Recently on a trip to Myrtle Beach, we were able to directly link our phones to the speakers built into the cart and have music at a comfortable level and enjoyed by just our cart. Even though that was a fantastic experience, not all carts are equipped with speakers. If you are looking to have music on the course this season, these are some of the best speakers you can have on the course. 

1) JBL Clip - The JBL Clip is a fantastic little speaker for the money. You can pick one up for 50 dollars from major retailers. What I like about the JBL clip is that it is not only portable but offers the ability to clip on your bag for walking rounds. When walking, you want to be as light as possible and have room in your bag for the things that matter like an extra sleeve of Srixon balls or rain gear. Although not the loudest speaker on the market, JBL has always been known for tremendous sound quality and this one doesn't disappoint.

2) Bose Soundlink Micro - Similar to the JBL clip, the Micro Soundlink offers the ability to clip on the golf bag or fit nicely into the cup holder of the cart. Surprisingly loud for the small speakers, what impressed was the level of audio clarity and bass with this speaker. Offering waterproof and voice commands to take phone calls, it’s perfect for those afternoons sneaking out a bit early from the office to hit the course.

3) Ultimate Ears Boom 3 - For just 79.99, the UE Boom well, booms. This speaker is a great option to have in your bag for walking but also can fit in the majority of carts cup holder and offers multi-directional sound to immerse yourself in quality sound. With up to 15 hours of playback on a single charge, this is the perfect golf speaker for those long summer days of playing 36 and having enough juice to bring music to the 19th hole watering spot.
