Buying Guide – How to find the best golf cart phone holder for your needs.
Tightness – Driving around on a golf course can often be a rough and bumpy ride. Especially if you can’t keep your golf ball in the fairway!
You are going to want a phone mount that very securely holds your phone. Check to make sure the model you are considering isn’t a loose fit for your phone.
That being said if you need to constantly be taking your phone in and out of the mount some models are harder to attach or more complicated than others.
Durability – It is important to check what kind of material your phone holder is made out of. You want to make sure that the product you buy is made out of quality materials that will last a long time.
Metal components are best but are often more expensive.
Also, make sure that your phone is protected while in the holder with some sort of rubber padding.
Compatibility – There are a lot of different sized phones out there, and not all phone mounts can support every phone model. Make sure that before you buy you check to see if your phone will fit.
Mounting – Determine where you want to mount your phone. Some styles attach to the roof support of your cart, others slip into the cup holder.
Do you want the phone within arms reach? Will you need to often adjust the position? Can you still access all of the phone controls? These are all important questions to consider before you decide on a phone mount.
